WATCH TRAILER

On the 4th of April 2022, Telemundo premiered a brand-new telenovela series titled The Scent of Passion (Café Con Aroma de Mujer) which airs every night at 9 p.m WAT on DStv Channel 118 and on GOTV Channel 14. The telenovela stars an acclaimed cast led by fan favourites William Levy, Laura Londoño and Carmen Villalobos. 

The Scent of Passion follows the love story between a local coffee picker, Gaviota (Londoño), and the son of a rich farm owner, Sebastián (Levy). The series shows how these two characters must overcome the resistance of Sebastian’s family, his past relationship and the challenges imposed by society due to the clash of two different worlds.

Gaviota and her mother visit Hacienda Casablanca to pick coffee from the second harvest of the year. During this planned visit, Gaviota saves the owner of the farm, Octavio Vallejo, from kidnappers by risking her life to create a distraction. Octavio then rewards Gaviota and her mother with one hectare of his land as a reward for saving his life. As the episode proceeds, Octavio suffers a heart attack and dies. His son, Sebastian must now return from New York to manage the business. As Gaviota tries to retrieve her reward, she meets Sebastian, and an instant connection develops between them. With both parties coming from different walks of life, will their love stand the challenges thrown at them? 

This classic love story has kept us glued to our screens with drama, romance, and thrilling scenes. The great love triangle features Sebastian’s bitter ex, Lucia, who will not accept that her relationship with Sebastian is over. As Sebastian and Gaviota try to build their relationship, Lucia continues to make efforts to win Sebastian back. Her efforts are supported by Sebastian’s bitter family who cannot allow their son to get engaged to someone who is a coffee picker. Another interesting triangle involves Sebastian’s mother who prefers Ivan to manage the family business over Sebastian.  

Over 10 episodes in, The Scent of Passion promises to be that engaging love and heartbreak story that Nigerians love so much. We have seen many telenovelas, but this has a fresh taste to it that makes it, unlike any other TV dramas. The Scent of Passion is the remake of a classic love story, but this new version incorporates modern-day elements that makes it even more exciting to watch!

You can tune in daily to watch The Scent of Passion on Telemundo at 9 p.m WAT on DStv Channel 118 and on GOTV Channel 14.
