Title: Perfume: The Story of a Murderer

Author: Patrick Süskind

Format: Paperback


Jean-Baptiste Grenouille is abandoned on the filthy streets of eighteenth-century Paris as a baby, but grows up to discover he has an extraordinary gift: a sense of smell more powerful than any other human's. Gradually he  learns how to exploit this gift in the art of creating the most sublime  perfumes in France.


Yet there is one scent he cannot capture: the scent  of an innocent young virgin. In order to perfect his experiments, he  must have this final ingredient, at any cost.


A cult international  bestseller, Perfume is a bewitching, darkly humorous fable of desire, obsession and death.
