    a great traveler in perfumes

    Her husband, a great traveler in perfumes, spent most of his time in America, where eventually he founded a firm and acquired a bit of real estate.
    From Nabokov's Lolita.

    What is meant by a "traveler in perfumes"? Does it simply mean that he wore perfumes?

    Thank you in advance.
