Published by RandomHouseAU
Jac L'Etoile has always been haunted by the past, her memories infused with the exotic scents she grew up around as the heir to a storied French perfume company. Fleeing the pain of those remembrances - and the suicide of her mother - she's left the company in the hands of her brother Robbie.

But when Robbie hints at an earth-shattering discovery in the family archives in Paris, and then suddenly goes missing - leaving a dead body in his wake - Jac is plunged into a world she thought she'd left behind.

For the House of L'Etoile has been hiding a powerful secret since 1799: a scent that unlocks the mysteries of reincarnation. In the wrong hands, it's a perfume with a deadly power. However identifying the formula may be Jac's only chance to save her brother...

The Book Of Lost Fragrances fuses history, passion and suspense in an intoxicating weave that moves from Cleopatra's Egypt and the terrors of revolutionary France to Tibet's battle with China and the glamour of modern-day Paris.

Prologue 
China ells Living Buddhas to Obtain PermissionBefore Tey Reincarnate
 ibet’s living Buddhas have been banned from re-incarnation without permission from China’s atheistleaders. Te ban is included in new rules intended toassert Beijing’s authority over ibet’s restive and deeply Buddhist people.For the first time China has given the Governmentthe power to ensure that no new living Buddha can beidentified, sounding a possible death knell to a mysticalsystem that dates back at least as far as the 12th century.China already insists that only the Government canapprove the appointments of ibet’s two most impor-tant monks, the Dalai Lama and the Panchen Lama. Te Dalai Lama’s announcement in May 1995 that asearch inside ibet . . . had identified the 11th reincar-nation of the Panchen Lama, who died in 1989, enragedBeijing. Te boy chosen by the Dalai Lama has disap-peared.
