Jac L'Etoile has always been haunted by visions of the past, her earliest memories infused with the exotic scents that she grew up with as the heir to a storied French perfume company. These worsened after her mother's suicide until she finally found a doctor who helped her, teaching her to explore the mythological symbolism in her visions and thus lessen their painful impact. This ability led Jac to a wildly successful career as a mythologist, television personality and author.

When her brother, Robbie - who's taken over the House of L'Etoile from their father - contacts Jac about a remarkable discovery in the family archives, she's skeptical. But when Robbie goes missing before he can share the secret - leaving a dead body in his wake - Jac is plunged into a world she thought she'd left behind.

Traveling back to Paris to investigate Robbie's disappearance, Jac discovers that the secret is a mysterious scent developed in Cleopatra's time. Could the rumors swirling be true? Can this ancient perfume hold the power to unlock the ability to remember past lives and conclusively prove reincarnation? If this possession has the power to change the world, then it's not only worth living for.... It's worth killing for, too.

The Book of Lost Fragrances fuses history, passion, and suspense in an intoxicating web 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. This marvelous, spellbinding novel mixes the sensory allure of Perfume with the heartbreaking beauty of The Time Traveler's Wife, coming to life as richly as our most wildly imagined dreams.

    " liked it for the most part. not sure about the ending "

    " An interesting premise that people are re-incarnated. Certainly not a new idea and using fragrances to bring your past lives to the fore is certainly something to consider. I use essential oils with my family for all sorts of reasons--to heal, to calm, to inspire, etc. I own many of the essential oils that were mentioned in the book, in fact. In any case, I thought the book had too many coincidences that weren't really plausible so my ability to fully suspend my disbelief was not possible. "

    " Paris, NYC, Tibet, China and ancient Egypt! An educational and engaging read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gail | 12/11/2013

    " I listened to this in my car driving to and from work and was not disappointed when I hit traffic jams. This was one of those books that's was sad to see end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alice Law | 12/9/2013

    " Ancient Egypt, Cleopatra, Napoleon, reincarnation and perfume makers... initially I found the story tad confusing and flustered to read, especially when each chapters were alternatively describing various character plots and different scenes(which I don't find relate to each other). However the suspense and thriller is intriguing, the rekindle romance is sweet, and I also get to know more about the art of perfume making. Something refreshing and new from what I have read so far. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jodi | 12/6/2013

    " This one is hard to classify--romance, historical, fantasy, thriller--it's a little of each. Throw in pinches of ancestral memory and reincarnation and you have this book. Yes, it's a bit of a flight of fancy, but I found it an entertaining escape. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Monique | 12/6/2013

    " Pretty good. The perfume references were what I was really keen on. The story is good. The suspense and writing are also ok. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeanne | 12/4/2013

    " A unique premise - more on reincarnation theory/beliefs than fragrance, yet still worth the read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathryn Dysart | 12/2/2013

    " This was a truly interesting historical novel/mystery. I will definitely seek out the perfume museum in Paris next month. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary | 11/12/2013

    " It was ok. A little Dan Brownish. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cora | 11/7/2013

    " Wonderful, lush images and evocative language of smells and fragrances that bring the past to life. The power of scent is highlighted in this tale of love and suspense repeating through time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nikee Huntington | 7/17/2013

    " 3.5 stars. Good story, but not very suspenseful. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Delia | 1/13/2013

    " I think this was a very interesting book and it gave me a lot of insight into reincarnation. I liked this book and would recommend it as a good read. "

    " Good writing and interesting story but unfortunately one of many books out traveling down similar paths of lost treasures, knowledge, artifacts with magical powers, etc. "
