When French perfumer Danielle Bretancourt steps aboard a luxury ocean liner, she has no idea that her life is about to change forever. The year is 1939, and the declaration of war on the European continent soon threatens to devastate her beloved family and young children. Traveling through London and Paris into occupied Poland, Danielle searches for the remains of her family until she is forced to flee to America. Gathering the fragments of her impoverished family, Danielle begins life anew in 1940s Los Angeles. Through determination and talent, she pursues work as a perfumer and fashion designer to Hollywood elite. Through it all, the men she loves suffer mounting losses. As the war continues to rage around the world, Danielle aids the French Resistance in its quest for freedom, and continues the search for her lost son, Nicky. Can Danielle and her family overcome the devastation that haunts their life? Set between privileged lifestyles and gritty realities, SCENT OF TRIUMPH is one woman’s story of courage, spirit, and resilience.
