I will be publishing my review of The Collector of Dying Breaths by M J Rose tomorrow as part of its Historical Fiction Book Tour, but today M J Rose shares with us the book beginning, a gorgeous antique perfume bottle she’s come across in her research for this series, and one of her favourite quotes.
“It is with irony now, forty years later, to think that if I had not been called a murderer on the most frightening night of my life, there might not be any perfume in Paris today. And that scent—to which I gave my all and which gave me all the power and riches I could have hoped for—is at the heart of why now it is I who call myself a murderer.”
“Two things make the women unforgettable, their tears and their perfume.” ―Sacha Guitry
