All rights available
Jeanne Doucet, a nose in the service of leading perfume houses, is asked to take on a strange mission. She has to smell the heart of a holy person, Émérence, in preparation for her beatification. Faced with this dry organ giving off an indefinable fragrance, Jeanne is overwhelmed, her life turned upside down. It is as if the spirit contained in had taken hold of her. Through the ages, she perceives an indescribable pain and unspeakable suffering. Haunted by Émérence, beset by visions, she will never stop trying to discover her secret. From now on, it is her heart that guides her in her footsteps. Perhaps, through this mystery, she is trying to rediscover a part of herself...
Franck Maubert takes us on a fantastic journey at the crossroads of the marvellous and the mystical.
