Monita gets a rare insight into Ferretti’s private life as they sail off the coast of Italy.

Back in London, Monita learns about the luxurious process of haute couture perfume, with a starting price of around ?7000. Creative perfumers create individual scents using colour therapy to profile a client's personality and asking them to smell over 4000 oils that can be used to make their own unique perfume. The development of perfume is done by an esteem perfumer. ART OF LIFE travels to Grasse in France to visit Jacques Chabert, responsible for iconic scents by Guerlain and Chanel.
