    Guillaume is a divorced, private chauffeur, desperately trying to make ends meet so that he can afford a larger apartment, in the hopes of winning joint custody of his daughter. He is assigned a demanding new client, Anne, a once-famous professional “nose” in the world of perfume design. 

    When Guillaume proves himself to be no pushover in the face of Anne’s normal diva-like behaviour, she begins to soften towards him and this odd couple’s initial fractious meetings quickly develop into a mutual respect. Can Guillaume help Anne overcome her own anxieties and relaunch her career?


    Featuring winning performances from the always reliable Devos and Call My Agent!’s Montel, this French comedy-drama is charming, elegant and refreshing.

     Quotes:

    “★ ★ ★ ★ What really sets Perfumes apart, however, is the creative friction between two excellent actors. … Montel is perfect at frazzle-haired confusion and sat-upon pathos. An ornament of her industry for 25 years, Devos once again shows an ability to work fragility in with domineering standoffishness. The two work together like a dream.” - Donald Clarke, The Irish Times

    “★ ★ ★ ★ Gregory Magne's French comedy-drama is quietly delightful.” - Ed Potton, The Times UK
