Perfume explores the astonishing creativity behind an invisible commodity that uses single molecules to whisper to one of our most sophisticated senses – smell.

Filmed across a year inside the multi-million dollar perfume industry, this three-part series tells the story of an ancient French perfume house and a mass-market fashion brand. We also follow master perfumers or 'noses' as they mix ingredients and meddle with our scent memories and observe the dwindling influence of Paris and New York as the tastes of the emerging markets begin to define the fragrances of the future.
