Perfume the story of a murderer

2 weeks ago I finished the book: "Perfume the story of a murderer" by Patrick Suskind for the second time. Now I've reed that this book will be on film this year and I'm excited about it. It's a strange story about Jean-Baptiste Grenouille born with no smell but an unique olfactory sense set plays in the 18th century in France. He never knew love at his childhood but because of his unique olfactory sense and his superior way of perfumemaking he becomes obsessed with making the perfect perfume. He started to learn everything about perfume and worked with perfumers in France. He became a master perfumer but wasn't finding what he was looking for. One day his nose smelled the perfect perfume, the perfume he was looking for, he traced the scent and found that it was the scent of a virgin. He had to own that perfume and planned to kill her so he could use her scent for his perfect perfume. One virgin was not enough so he killed more virgins to capturing the irresistible but elusive aroma of young womanhood. Ben Whishaw is playing Jean-Baptiste Grenouille in the movie, Dustin Hoffman plays Guiseppe Baldini. Here you can see a short trial of the movie.

The picture of Ben Whishaw is from Constantin Film, Munchen and the picture from the movie is from cinema blend
