Editorial Reviews

The perfume industry is the sumptuous backdrop for Bare Essence, Meredith Rich's popular drama about the creation of a stirring new scent. Rich's evocative prose takes on a sensual character under Isabelle Gordon's velvety narration, as she describes the exploits of Tiger, a beautiful and rich divorcee discovering herself in 1980s New York. A heady mix of corporate intrigue, thrilling sexual escapades, and high drama, Bare Essence captures the soul of the 80s and distills it into pure, decadent listening pleasure.

Publisher's Summary

The birth of a great scent is the main focus in Meredith Rich's absorbing drama about the rise and fall of people behind the perfume industry. Throughout wonderful settings, gorgeous women, handsome men, power, and romance, Rich's first outing paints a colorful portrait of a pampered heroine on the brink of self-discovery, and the effect it causes to those around her.

Bare Essence touches themes such as trust, betrayal, love, greed, independence, and the power of forgiveness: all the right ingredients for making this novel a sure-fire best seller. With a clear prose behind a rich jet-set frame of mind, the author's talent definitely shines from cover to cover.
