Part of Artwave 2021. Followed by Sensing Through Scent, an evening of discovery with local perfumer and trained nose, Nancy Meiland.

Anne Walberg was once the star of her industry – a perfumer whose ability to produce enticing new fragrances was second to none and which saw her rise through a competitive landscape. She remains in demand, but her intemperate behaviour has made her difficult. However, striking up an unlikely friendship with her equally troubled new driver, Anne sees a way to return to the top, which might offer a solution to both their problems.
