Marguerite’s neck stiffened, and her face turned beet red with anger. “Can you just zip it, Chuck?” she shot at him.
After packing up, Marguerite followed Chuck to the elevator with a carton in her arms.
In the corridor, she ran into a few colleagues from the marketing department. She saw Larry holding a tray with several samples of Polar Radiance perfume on it.
Marguerite sidled up to Larry, her eyes landed on the tray. “Hey Larry, where are you off to?”
Larry turned to look at Marguerite, explaining amicably, “Polar Radiance is still under development. The boss wants us to do some market research; let people on the street give it a whirl and see what they think.”
Market feedback was indeed necessary before a product launch, so Marguerite didn’t say anything more.
Just then, the elevator doors opened. Marguerite quickly bid Larry goodbye and followed Chuck into the VIP elevator that led to the CEO’s office.
Yuna hadn’t seen Frederick for several days, and every time she called him, she got the busy signal. After a few words, he’d hang up.
Feeling neglected, she was getting antsy and decided to drop by his office.
But as soon as she got out of her car, she saw a large crowd gathered at the entrance of the company.
Some people were writing something, others were spraying something into the air.
Yuna was in a hurry to see Frederick and didn’t want to dilly-dally, but then she caught sight of a woman in a uniform with an ID badge, holding a bottle of liquid, and explaining something to a passer-by.
Yuna’s gaze was instantly drawn to it.
The pale green liquid with a fine shimmer-wasn’t it the exact same perfume she got from Marguerite?
Yuna moved quickly over to the woman and asked, “Is that perfume you’re holding?”
The woman turned and smiled, nodding. “Yes, ma’am. It’s a new perfume called Polar Radiance that LuxeScents International is developing. Would you like to try
Yuna nodded eagerly. “Yes! Spray me some, quick!”
As she spoke, she extended her wrist impatiently.
The woman sprayed some of the sample on Yuna’s wrist. A refreshing, heartwarming fragrance wafted up, light and fresh, reminding one of the auroras in Iceland. It was refreshing and eye-catching.
It was the exact same fragrance as Marguerite’s!
“Is this the first time you guys have brought this perfume out? Have there been any events like this before?”
The woman shook her head and said, “This is the first time.”
If it was the first time, how did Marguerite get her hands on it?
Could Frederick have given it to her in advance?
Based on her speculation, the night Marguerite and Frederick had a one-night stand, the fragrance Frederick smelled on Marguente was this Polar Radiance perfume.
She used this perfume to bewitch Frederick, which meant that this Polar Radiance perfume had existed at that time.
Now it’s a new product being developed by LuxeScents International?
As Yuna was lost in thought, her shoulder was bumped by a passer-by, who excitedly grabbed the woman’s hand, asking eagerly, “Miss, who designed this perfume? Your perfumes have always been top-notch; did you hire a professional perfumer? The fragrance is simply amazing; I’ve never smelled anything like it before! And the color is so unique!”
“It’s designed by a newcomer in our company, not very famous yet. Her name is Marguerite. Once the perfume is launched, we will do some promotion. We hope for your support then.”
Upon hearing this, Yuna’s mind was almost unable to process this information.
Was this perfume really concocted by Marguerite?
How could a country bumpkin without any professional training possibly know how to blend a perfume?
“Ma’am, when will the perfume be available? I can’t wait! Can you give me a few samples?”
“I’m sorry, but we’re currently short on samples. Please be patient. It shouldn’t be long. We’ve submitted the perfume formula to the Patent Office. Once we get the patent report, we’ll start production immediately.”
Yuna leaned against the wall, spiritless, the crowd’s words of praise for Marguerite’s talent echoing In her ears.
She felt weak, their voices grating on her ears.
No wonder Marguerite, with her outstanding talent, caught Frederick’s eye!
Once this perfume was mass-produced, Marguerite will be able to enchant Frederick every day. By then, she’d be completely out of the picture.
She couldn’t let that happen!
She had to do something to stop all of this!
Soon, a bigger scheme began to form in her mind.
This time, she was going to ruin Marguerite’s reputation!
As Yuna thought about this, she couldn’t help but glance at the imposing and majestic Winston Building behind her, a hint of ruthlessness and cunning flashing in
