It tells the story of an unexpected encounter between an extraordinary mother and a great perfumer. A challenge that will change their lives forever. Claire hires Paul, a famous perfume designer, for an almost impossible mission: to allow her son Darius to satisfy his passion for travel when it is impossible for him to move. Using the places and people loved by Darius, they will find an unexpected path, thanks to this frail and vivacious, immaterial and persistent feeling: perfume.
Don’t forget about the National Elections that will be held on 5 February 2023 from 8 am to 7 pm in Espace Léo Ferré.
