Perfumer Vic Fowler has developed a delicate art that has proved to be very lucrative. Vic creates bespoke scents that evoke immersive memories—memories that could even be worth killing for… When a former client with deep pockets offers Vic an opportunity to expand the enterprise, the money is too good to turn down.
