At this moment, Frederick had Marguerite frozen in her tracks with his burning gaze. His last words echoed in her ears I’m the founder of LuxeScents International. Your fate is in my hands!
She had tried to persuade him with her professional knowledge and even planned to find his boss to fight for her chance to stay.
She was too naive. He was the king of the perfume industry, he indeed had the power to act as he pleased. And what did she count for? She dared to challenge this industry titan. This world was controlled by these people!
Marguerite’s face turned ashen, She felt like a joke, watched coldly by everyone.
The office atmosphere was eerily quiet, Robert and Chuck were stunned. Especially Robert, he simply couldn’t believe it.
Frederick’s sense of smell had returned? That was too sudden! He was just counseling him a moment ago, and Frederick couldn’t smell a thing!
Robert tried to contain his excitement, signaled Chuck to comfort Marguerite, and quickly pulled Frederick into an interior lounge, shutting the door tightly.
He was so thrilled that he didn’t know what to do, he stuck his hand in front of Frederick’s nose, his face tense. Frederick pushed him away, frowning, “What are you doing?”
“I sprayed perfume today. Can you smell what it is?”
Frederick looked at him, frowning, and after a while, he realized his purpose. He leaned slightly forward, and took a light sniff. Soon, he pushed Robert’s hand away again, without saying a word.
“Can you smell it?”
Frederick answered coldly, “Nope.”
“Maybe the scent is too light, hold on.”
Robert looked around, turned to find a scented candle on the bookshelf. He was so anxious that he knocked over some items. After a while, he finally found the scented candle he wanted, lit it, and held it up to Frederick’s nose, “Smell again.”
This scented candle was one of LuxeScents International’s strongest scents, so sweet it was somewhat sickening. Frederick sniffed, but still
shook his head.
“Still nothing?” Robert was puzzled, “Then how could you smell the perfume just now?”
Frederick pursed his lips, “I don’t know.”
Robert was confused, what was going on?
He saw that Frederick still held the perfume sample called Polar Radiance, snatched it, sprayed it into the air, and the light scent instantly filled the room.
“Can you smell it now?”
Frederick’s nostrils twitched slightly, a comfortable feeling instantly filled his nose, making his whole body feel refreshed. He smiled slightly and simply said, “Yes.”
Now, Robert was utterly dumbfounded. Frederick couldn’t smell anything due to his loss of smell, but he could only smell this perfume. Wasn’t this too strange?
Robert’s eyes narrowed, lost in thought.
Frederick was also very frustrated, full of doubts. Since he lost his sense of smell in the car accident, there were only two times he could smell something. Once was that night. The other time was just now.
After thinking for a long time, Robert walked back to Frederick, without any hesitation, he made a decision for him, “Keep that woman called Marguerite.”
Frederick was taken aback, “What?”
“You can’t smell anything, but you can only smell the perfume she designed. I think, this woman is the antidote you need.” Robert said firmly.
A look of surprise flashed in Frederick’s eyes. Thinking of Marguerite’s tactics and scheming, he didn’t have a good impression of her.
“I won’t keep a manipulative woman by my side.”
Robert was puzzled, “I’ve been observing her, I really don’t understand why you’re so repulsed by her.”
A look of doubt appeared on Frederick’s emotionless face, “Do you remember what I told you this morning, that I suddenly have a wife?” Robert was stunned, then his heart raced, blurting out, “Your wife is Marguerite?”
Frederick was frustrated, but he didn’t utter a word.
