The first book of Jennifer Blake's that I've read. It's been years but I can still remember that it's the first and only out of all the books I've read that made me literally cry: tears, snot and all. I just couldn't help myself then but it's the reason why I really love this book. It's a book that wretches emotions out of me and I never really cry on books. 5 out of 5 for the great quality and uniqueness of the story! ( )

Book description
When Joletta Caresse's beloved grandmother dies, she takes with her the secret formula to a legendary perfume believed to have been worn by Cleopatra and Empress Josephine—that is now the most desperately sought perfume on the market. Joletta's only clue to the formula is the journals written by her ancestress, Violet Fossier, who in 1854 made a grand tour of Europe. As Joletta follows Violet's itinerary across the continent, the story goes back in time, to nineteenth-century Europe and a scandalous love affair that is intimately bound up in the mystery of the perfume. In the present, Joletta finds herself attracted to—and suspicious of—Rone Adamson, a Southern playboy whose astounding knowledge of perfume makes Joletta wary. Yet his chivalrous charms prove too much for her scruples, and Joletta succumbs to her dubious white knight, even as danger swirls around them...
