Home Patrick Süskind Perfume: The Story of a Murderer. His name was Jean-Baptiste Grenouille, and if his name-in contrast to the names of other gifted abominations, de Sade’s, for instance, or Saint-Just’s, Fouché’s, Bonaparte’s, et. has been forgotten today, it is certainly not because Grenouille fell short of those more famous blackguards when it came to arrogance, misanthropy, immorality, or, more succinctly, to wickedness, but. because his gifts and his sole ambition were restricted to a domain that leaves no traces in history: to the fleeting realm of scent.

Perfume: The Story of a Murderer (German: Das Parfum, pronounced ) is a 1985 literary historical fantasy novel by German writer Patrick Süskind. The novel explores the sense of smell and its relationship with the emotional meanings that scents may have.

Reviews about Perfume: The Story of a Murderer (7):
Stylish Monkey
Heard about this book in an interview with Kurt Cobain, who said that this book was the inspiration for the song "Scentless Apprentice". Being a Nirvana fan, I had to give it a shot. I can honestly say that this, despite it being a bit confusing at times, is one of my favorite stories I have ever read. Definitely one to read several times, as I'm convinced that more/deeper meaning would be revealed each and every time.
If you're thinking of getting it, DO.

I love this book. I bought it the year it first came out, and every few years I reread it. It is like Gormenghast in that it is too intense to reread more often than that. Historical fiction is my favorite genre, and while this is not strictly in that category, it suffices. Just reread the Kindle edition and am waiting for 2020 when it'll be time to reread again!

It's a quirky read. It uses an omniscient narrator, the main character is a psychopath, and every description concerns scent. Smells. Lots of smells. If you want to read about smells, or learn how to write about smells, this book's unmatched. I started reading to learn about writing smells. I kept reading because of its dark lurid tale and quirky setup. Nothing like it nowadays.

I recommend the movie too.

It's the kind of story you remember whether you want to or not.

I heard in an interview that this was Kurt Cobain's favorite book. The book is a psychological thriller - the book covers the art and essence of smell and perfumery on a philosophical level. It's an interesting read actually and I felt like it had increased my creativity.

The book fills in the gabs that the film left out...The story, on its' own is good and keeps your attention. But, just as the Harry Potter series is great on its' own...it somewhat mirrors WWII...a period of ethnic cleansing ....Perfume also mirrors symbolically, Jean-Baptiste's obsession resulting in terror with Robespierre's obsession of the French Revolution also resulting in the reign of terror . Throughout the book Grenouile's wardrobe changes...during the French Revolution how people dressed represented their political persuasion. The end of the book...The devouring of Jean-Baptiste leaving his clothing behind, really can mirror the End of Robespierre's reign of Terror and the Revolution, and the beginning of the Napoleonic era..
Either way...the story is worth reading.

After decades of hearing about this book, I finally settled in to read it. It is quite disturbing, terribly engaging, and a bit haunting. I found myself reading through it in a matter of several days. As I read, I could almost smell the book. I've never read a book that stimulates one sense so strongly. The English translation reads like a 19th-century French realist novel, in a good way.

This is exactly why I felt so ... betrayed? ... by the ending. Now, I realize the author was making a statement, but I feel this novel took the easy way out, so to speak. There needs to be a balance between the statement and making the content acceptable to the reader. Don't get me wrong - I'm not saying the ending was offensive. To me, it felt rushed and hokey, and dispelled the effect that the chapters leading up to it had worked to create.

Also, please understand that I still strongly recommend that everyone reads this at least once, but in my opinion it does not merit five or even four stars.

Definitely on my top 10 of best books ever read in my life. Although it is a translation from the original (I believe it was written in German originally) it is still a masterpiece in the use of the English language. A must read for every single person in the world, if only to relish the use of wonderfully descriptive narrative which is so sadly lacking in the modern world ! As all good books, one is transported into another world each time you pick it up.
Perfume is a wonderfully written, magical tale full that is sometimes funny, other times scary and often just plain weird. Peer into the incredible, horrible life (and mind) of Grenouille, a man who, from birth, revolts the senses of anyone in his presence. Peer over his shoulder as he goes on a fantastic, perverse quest of self-discovery. At times you may pity him; at times you may loathe him - but it’s doubtful that one would ever forget him. This is one hell of a great read, and it was also made into one of my favorite films. Enjoy!
