Detroit's a city where locally made products can do really well and become a thing. One of those is Sfumato Fragrances, created by the Corktown-based husband and wife duo of Kevin Peterson and Jane Larson.

They're already at work on their new Midtown retail store, thanks to a $20,000 Motor City Match grant. Sven caught up with the pair at Queen's bar in Detroit and talked juggling a day job with your passion, how the idea for starting a company focused on fragrances came about, and the future.
