Jutta  Oltmanns - The Scent Merchant


A young maker of scents and fragrances, a journey to Russia and a secret love

Leer in around 1700. Young Josefine is growing up among the crucibles, mortars and wonderful recipes in her father's apothecary's shop and is a master in the art of mixing scents and fragrances. One day she receives an invitation from Tsar Peter the Great to go to St. Petersburg. Josefine's task is to use a magic scent to help the melancholy tsarina find a new joy in life. But at the tsar's court she is caught up in an intrigue that places her at great peril.

A historical novel with very special ingredients: the art of making perfume, fascinating curiosities, a strong young woman and a great love.
