Lady Gu Is Too Weak To Fend For Herself - Chapter 760
“Didn’t you just say that you’re very knowledgeable about perfume and have been using perfumes for eight years?” Gu Zheng smiled teasingly. He had long known about Qiao Xi’s other identity—the perfumer, Mu Jin.
Seeing that she was feeling guilty, the man did not expose her. He changed the topic and said, “Actually, Lu Yan isn’t confident about the perfume itself but the bottle.”
To women, fragrance was important, but the appearance of a perfume bottle was also very important. If it was good enough, they would be willing to pay for it. Lu Yan wanted to make use of this to earn a profit from the new perfume.
Many people bought perfume not only for use but also for collection. Looking at exquisite perfume bottles on the table would make one feel happy.
However, what should Lu Yan use to be recognized by the public?
Gu Zheng pointed at a line of words on the table. “Lu Yan wants to use Han Ye’s oil painting as the packaging for the perfume bottles.”
Qiao Xi raised her eyes in shock, but with her understanding of Han Ye, he would probably not agree with Lu Yan’s thoughts. It was absolutely impossible even if Lu Yan offered a high price.
Every single one of Han Ye’s paintings was expensive, but he did not continue to create any more. This meant that he did not lack money. Moreover, he was a low-profile person. It did not seem reasonable to ask him to print his paintings on perfume bottles.
Gu Zheng said, “There aren’t many paintings by Han Ye. The most famous two are ‘Sleeping Jasmine’ and ‘Love of Lilac’.”
Of course, Qiao Xi knew them. These two paintings were her favorite. The artistic conception was subtle, and there was a young woman’s back view in both paintings. They were enchanting.
She had even copied these two paintings with her grandfather, but she could not match the original works’ artistic conception. She could only come up with a rough outline.
Lu Yan chose these two paintings to be the packaging of the perfume bottles, which meant that the main notes of these two perfumes were jasmine and lilac. They corresponded to these two paintings, so they would definitely be popular.
“However…” Gu Zheng paused. “I don’t think Han Ye gave Lu Yan permission to proceed.”
If that was the case, even if the perfumes were listed on the market, they would all be taken down in the end. Moreover, if Han Ye wanted to pursue this matter, Lu Corporation would have to pay a huge sum of money.
However, how could Lu Yan be so rash? Before confirming this plan, he must have already investigated Han Ye’s identity. After confirming that it would not harm Lu Corporation’s interests, he could then go ahead with ease.
Lu Yan frowned. “Is Han Ye really no longer alive?”
“Young Master, we’ve sent three groups of people to investigate. That’s the result of our investigation. There won’t be any problems.”
“Does he have a family?” Lu Yan asked.
The launch of the new perfumes this time was Lu Corporation’s comeback. It could only succeed and not fail.
He thought about it for a long time before deciding on the current plan. With Sally’s and Han Ye’s reputations combined, the perfumes paired with the paintings as their packaging would definitely sell well.
Now that Sally had already signed the contract and he poached the perfumers from Gu Corporation, the only thing missing was Han Ye. The people he sent out to investigate for a long time all said that Han Ye had passed away, but they did not find any information about his family.
The subordinate replied, “Han Ye doesn’t have any family, but there’s an artist called Han Yin in the oil painting world. We’ve investigated this person. She doesn’t seem to be related to Han Ye at all.”
After the proposal was set, Lu Yan had asked around about Han Ye. As long as he could find him, he would get him to agree to let them use these two paintings no matter what. However, the news he received was that Han Ye was no longer alive and had no family.
Even though he could use these two paintings without spending any money, Lu Yan was still a little uneasy because he could not allow himself to fail again. He had to ensure that nothing would go wrong this time.
“Investigate carefully what the relationship between Han Yin and Han Ye is.”
At this moment, a subordinate rushed in. “Young Master, Han Yin has released news that she has nothing to do with Han Ye. It’s just a coincidence that both their names have the word ‘Han’.
“The international oil painting exhibition is going to be held in Li City this time. Han Yin’s and Han Ye’s works will be displayed in the art exhibition. I heard that all the artists whose paintings will be shown will be present. Only Han Ye’s paintings were brought by the person in charge. He won’t appear at all. Coupled with the results from our investigation, we can now confirm that Han Ye is no longer alive.”
Lu Yan heaved a sigh of relief. “In that case…”
“Let’s postpone the matter of the perfumes’ packaging for now. We’ll go to the art exhibition and see what happens there before deciding.”
