Perfume- The Story of a Murderer.

Perfume: The Story of a Murderer (film)Perfume

When thinking about books and movies that focuses on perfume, only one book comes to mind. I read this a couple years ago in it’s original language. The book is called “Perfume- Story of a Murderer“, while the original book is written in German and is called “Das Parfum“. The movie came out a year after I finished reading the book, but of course the film did the book no justice. The whole book focuses on you using your sense of smell, like the main character does. After reading the first couple of pages, I was already smelling the world a bit differently. I would try to smell things that were in the air and guess what they are, like when you smell the cooking of your neighbor and try to make out what specifically they are cooking. But overall the story is pretty gruesome, the main character kills girls for their scents to make perfume out of them. I would not recommend watching the movie, it was a little cheesy and doesn’t get your imagination going like the book does.
