Perfume blogger Polly is in crisis. Will her husband's absence break her ... or make her? A novel of perfumes, exploring life, love, loss and forgiveness -- Maggie Alderson's new bestseller.

'Delicious and delightful in every way' Daily Mail

Are you still married if you haven't seen your husband for months?

Polly's life is great. Her children are away at uni, her glamorous mother -- still modelling at eighty-five -- is happily settled in a retirement village, and her perfume blog is taking off. Then her husband announces he needs some space and promptly vanishes.

As Polly grapples with her bewildering situation, she clings to a few new friends to keep her going -- Shirlee, the loudmouthed yoga student; Guy, the mysterious, infuriating and hugely talented perfumer; and Edward, an old flame from university.

And while she distracts herself with the heady world of luxury perfume, Polly knows she can't keep reality at bay forever. Eventually she is forced to confront some difficult truths: about her husband, herself and who she really wants to be.

Praise for Maggie Alderson:

'Maggie Alderson has a light touch, a well-sharpened wit and lots of heart' Better Reading

'The Scent of You is just that: a classic Alderson which mixes everything good in life; perfume, the internet, family and Very Good Looking men, into one can't-put-down read' Vogue

'A lovely combination of glamour, humour and poignancy.' Marian Keyes on Handbags and Gladrags

'Brimming with wit and wisdom' Courier-Mail
