Anne Walberg (Emmanuelle Devos) is a once world-famous perfumer, with a remarkable nose for identifying and creating scents. However, her skills have been less in demand of late, having gained a reputation for being ill-tempered and difficult to work with. When divorced dad Guillaume (Grégory Montel, Call My Agent!) lands a job as her chauffeur, he too struggles to meet her exacting and eccentric demands. Despite their differences, the two strike up an unlikely bond, with Guillaume encouraging the insular Anne to open up to the world around her, inspiring her to greater things.
