Patrick Suskind's Perfume tells the story of killer Jean Baptiste-Grenouille in eighteenth century France. Jean grows up to discover his unusual gift, a remarkable sense of smell which aids him in creating sublime fragrances for the city. But the desire to capture the scent of young virgins drives him to kill repeatedly. In turns strange, hypnotic and evocative, Perfume is unforgettable, dark and twisted. It features a compelling protagonist extraordinarily drawn on the page.
