Scent of Triumph Debut and Vintage Perfumes

SCENT OF TRIUMPH by Jan Moran Book CoverSCENT OF TRIUMPH (also known as The Perfumer) is a novel about a French perfumer during World War II, a saga that's been called “heartbreaking, evocative, and inspiring,” by Allison Pataki, New York Times bestselling author of The Accidental Empress. If you loved The Nightingale from Kristin Hannah, or Danielle Steel's World War II sagas, then you'll probably enjoy this story about a French perfumer (and includes many vintage perfumes).

The story begins in September of 1939, on the day that France and England declared war on Nazi Germany for violating an agreement and invading Poland. French perfumer Danielle Bretancourt and her family are immediately thrust into the terrifying conflict. This saga is told from a woman’s point of view, a woman who is desperately trying to keep her children safe and reunite her family. SCENT OF TRIUMPH is a story of courage resilience, love, and triumph. Set between privileged lifestyles and gritty realities, SCENT OF TRIUMPH is one woman's story of courage, spirit, and resilience.

I love to see the book “in the wild,” so if you want to snap your photo when you buy it, or with your favorite vintage perfume, or with your book club friends, even better.

I'll post randomly selected photos on social media, so make 'em good.

And here's a fun video from the Literary Tea that Adventures by the Book arranged for me at the gorgeous Westgate Hotel in San Diego. Wish you all could have been there.

Reviews Rolling In…

Early reviews and praise are rolling in, too. Here's a couple:

Huffington Post Books: New York Times bestselling author Allison Pataki puts Scent of Triumph at #7 on the top ten most anticipated books of 2015: “It's a spy novel meets a war saga meets a sweeping love story. Like her leading lady protagonist, Jan Moran is originally a perfume creator herself, and she promises to serve up evocative and delicious details about an alluring world of perfume and passion. Plus, her book recently earned her the title from one reviewer as ‘the new queen of the epic novel.'”

Night Owl sealNight Owl Reviews: “Scent of Triumph is one of my latest favorites. This book was heartbreaking and yet was an exquisite tale of tribulation, adventure and heroism that all intertwined the strength of a woman… When I read Scent of Triumph I finally felt like I had discovered both an author and novel that I had been searching for… As rare as it is for me to not discover a flaw within a novel I have no faults with this book. Scent of Triumph is written boldly with a strong focus on a woman brought to life in the rumbles of a war. Readers get to feel the true love that she possessed as she searches for her family that becomes lost to her. It made me fall in love with this story.”

I sincerely hope you enjoy the journey of Danielle Bretancourt, and that she touches your heart as she touched mine.
