This month on ART OF LIFE CNN’s Monita Rajpal explores the world of celebrated Italian fashion designer Alberta Ferretti and takes a look at scent, visiting a bespoke perfumery in London and a Parisian hotel that has created its own scent which it even includes in its desserts.

Alberta Ferretti unveils her passion for her work, taking Monita to her factory in Cattolica, Italy, where the Alberta Ferretti and Philosophy lines are created. Ferretti also invites Monita to her country home and welcomes her aboard her boat, an extraordinary old icebreaker that she re-designed into a luxury family yacht to escape the pressures of life in the fashion world. 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.

The Park Hyatt Hotel in Paris has created a scent for its guests. The smell surrounds the hotel and the head chef has even devised a dessert that incorporates it. Blaise Mautin, the Park Hyatt’s ‘nose’ talks to ART OF LIFE about how it was created.
