Perfume: The Story of a Murderer
Perfume: The Story of a Murderer | Patrick Suskind
An acclaimed bestseller and international sensation, Patrick Suskind's classic novel provokes a terrifying examination of what happens when one man's indulgence in his greatest passion--his sense of smell--leads to murder. In the slums of eighteenth-century France, the infant Jean-Baptiste Grenouille is born with one sublime gift--an absolute sense of smell. As a boy, he lives to decipher the odors of Paris, and apprentices himself to a prominent perfumer who teaches him the ancient art of mixing precious oils and herbs. But Grenouille's genius is such that he is not satisfied to stop there, and he becomes obsessed with capturing the smells of objects such as brass doorknobs and fresh-cut wood. Then one day he catches a hint of a scent that will drive him on an ever-more-terrifying quest to create the "ultimate perfume"--the scent of a beautiful young virgin. Told with dazzling narrative brilliance, Perfume is a hauntingly powerful tale of murder and sensual depravity. Translated from the German by John E. Woods.

Um..... what did I just read?! 😆 There were parts of this book that I really liked and at other times I was a little bored. And then the ending - Whaaaat??????
The writing was really different. Reading with the main perspective being scent rather sight was really interesting and at times beautiful. But I‘m a bit weirded out now. I don‘t know what to think about this book.

Victoria_Clyne I read this a while ago but that's exactly how I felt, still feel. 1mo

A strange read but good too! I don‘t think I‘ll watch the Netflix series bc the setting was so central to this story for me.

#Crave usually suggests taste but can you crave a scent? The main character in this book does! He has a keen sense of smell and it drives him to create the ultimate perfume.
I loved this book. It's so rich, macabre, and riveting. I had fun looking at all the different covers. There's definitely a theme!

#110 of my year. When I was 17 I found a copy of this book at a church yard sale and really liked it. I also remember Kurt Cobain often mentioning it and that‘s mainly why I read it lol gonna give it a reread since I only read it the once and gonna try to find the movie 🖤

Caffeinated_Reader Yup, still creepy. I definitely want to see the movie now for sure. I don‘t think I would have read it as many times as Kurt Cobain reportedly did but it‘s worth the read. It‘s quick paced although I think the beginning drags on a bit but yeah. Great read. 4mo

I really wanted to like this novel more than I did. I loved the perfume making and murderer combination, but I just find myself struggling with historical fiction. The prose seemed a bit stilted because of both the historical aspect of the novel and the time period the author wrote it in. This was so middle of the road for me, and I wished so badly that it wasn‘t. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Shvonne There is a German show on Netflix that is about a group of friends who have read the book. It‘s super dark and has a different vibe than the book. 5mo

From the very first page I knew I was going to love this book. It‘s disturbing, darkly erotic and unabashedly gothic. The concept of this book is unusual yet inspired and Grenouille, the main character, is frighteningly creepy, moving from social outcast to man most hated, then man adored. An incredibly good read and one I‘ll certainly read again. Also, that cover is beautiful. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

After finally finishing the book (every time I sat down to read it I ended up falling asleep) I still can't make up my mind. The character of Grenouille is strange, confusing, disgusting and horrible. He is an orphan but he is evil, for me he wasn't a character that I could like or understand why he was doing what he was doing. I am not sure whether I enjoyed the book or not...not sure I will ever make my mind up about it

I don‘t usually read thrillers, which this is, essentially. But it‘s so fascinating—a character with “a perfect sense of smell” who becomes a perfumer do he can learn to make smells and affect people‘s behavior. Also, murder. #1001books

For fans of the tagged book there is a series on Netflix called Perfume that is based on the same themes as the book. German and dark and perfect for the post Christmas blues lol

Naj Thanks for the heads up! I loved another German series on Netflix - 'Dark'. This seems similar. 1y
TheFunkyBookworm @Naj yes! I watched the first season of that one and loved it but felt like I needed an FBI style white board to keep up with all the storylines! Lol this one is much easier to follow! 1y
Naj @TheFunkyBookworm Lol, yes. There were episodes that made my brain hurt with all the back and forth between time and keeping track of who was who in which timeline. Glad to know this one is simpler. Will definitely check it out. 1y

The writing was gorgeous, but the plot flitted around quite a bit. The story of a murderer, but with very little murder until close to the end. However, if you ever want to read about the painstaking process to extract essential oils from plants, this book is for you.

callielafleur
I am taking serious liberties with this, but I would love to count it for the "MC with an invisible illness" category in #Booked2018 - Grenouille is born without scent of his own (making him seen invisible to others), and has an extremely heightened sense of smell himself. What do you think, @Cinfhen @4thhouseontheleft @BarbaraTheBibliophage ? ?

Day 28: Perfume by Patrick Süskind; if you share my penchant for the dark, a story of a murderer with a remarkable sense of smell - to him, a person's smell is as unique as a fingerprint; not for the faint of heart #31Books #BooksIRecommend

The story of the young Grenouille who is only able to express himself through the dictionary of scents and the alphabet of perfume. Any words not referring to a smell wasn't understandable for him. Abstract words like moral, justice, responsibility, thankfulness were only enigmatic concepts. Wonderfully written.

Non-bookish post alert!

I treated myself to this long desired perfume today. I have always adored and been fascinated by fragrance. The top note of this one is black coffee - it's like it was made for me!

I may be dressed in washed up rags but I smell amazing!!

Plus I paid for it on my Boots points so it was (kind of) free!

Velvetfur Oohhh I like that one! Good for you, perfume can lift the senses like nothing else, you will smile every time you catch the scent on yourself 😀 I love that tagged book too, one of my favourites 😊 2y
