Perfume : The Story Of A Murderer
Patrick Suskind's Perfume follows the life of
Jean-Baptiste Grenouille, abandoned at birth in the slums of
eighteenth-century Paris, but blessed with an outstanding sense of
smell. This gift enables Jean-Baptiste to master the art of perfume
making, but one scent evades him: that of a virgin, whom he must
possess to ensure her innocence and beauty are preserved. Laced with
sense and suspense, this is a beguiling tale of lust, desire and deadly

'In eighteenth-century France there lived a man who was one of the most gifted and abominable personages in an era that knew no lack of gifted and abominable personages . . . '
Jean-Baptiste Grenouille, born in a Parisian slum and abandoned on the streets, discovers he has an extraordinary - near superhuman - sense of smell. As he sniffs his way across France, this gift is exploited by Grenouille to make the world's most marvellous perfumes. Yet in seeking perfection in his experiments, he realises that a vital ingredient is missing for the perfect scent: innocence.
And in order to get the ingredient he needs, he must capture it - whatever the price.
