Survivor, genius, perfumer, killer: this is Jean-Baptiste Grenouille. He is abandoned on the filthy streets as a child, but grows up to discover he has an extraordinary gift: a sense of smell more powerful than any other human's. Soon, he is creating the most sublime fragrances in Paris. Yet there is one odour he cannot capture. It is exquisite, magical: the scent of a young virgin. And to get it he must kill. And kill. And kill ...… (més)

First I saw the 2006 movie "Perfume" because it had Alan Rickman in it. The movie is almost a perfect adaptation of the book.

The concept blew me away because it has to do with sensory overload. Too many smells, too many colors, too many voices, and too many people can drive one to madness, although I doubt psychopathy. It was a devilish plot, though. I highly recommend it. ( )

Es una historia interesante.
Mi primer acercamiento a ella fue al película y la verdad que hicieron un excelente trabajando capturando al esencia de la historia. Las cosas que aportan la lectura se agradecen, en especial el hincapié en que Grenouille es un tipo desagradable tanto en aspecto físico como en personalidad. Es la desgracia hecha carne y es interesante ver como su paso por el mundo es seguido por la miseria y desgracia de todo aquel con el que se cruza.
Por momentos casi se siente que te quieran instar a una lástima por el despiadado Grenouille, porque en la cima del mundo aun así no alcanzo lo que realmente añoraba pero el final es más que satisfactorio, especialmente pensando que su vida termina en el mismo lugar en el que empieza pero en vez de causar la desgracia de los que lo encuentran en su final los deja con una sensación de satisfacción, de haber obrado por amor puro y sincero.

It’s been about a decade since I last visited this novel, and I’ve become no less disinterested in the horror genre (excepting vampires, of course), but somehow this book never fails to drag me in, whether I’m willing or not. Following the life of Jean-Baptiste Grenouille through historical 18th-century France, Patrick Süskind weaves a captivating tale that brings readers from Grenouille’s fish guts-ensconced birth to his cannibalistic death at the hands of Parisian street people, with a handful of murders in between. What drives Grenouille (and what keeps us turning the pages of his story) are the scent-scapes that drift through Süskind’s historical setting - from the rancid tannery where Grenouille spends his adolescence to the personless slopes of the Plomb du Cantal - which paint a surprisingly realistic setting for Grenouille’s quest to recreate the most alluring scent known to man. Scent is, of course, one of the most important senses, but in our modern age of artificial scents and underlying cleanliness I feel like it is often forgotten in lieu of imagery, taste, etc. That is, until a book like this one brings scent to the foreground once again, asking us whether scent (alluring or not) is what makes us human, and whether we become empty vessels of need (like Grenouille) in a scent-free environment. On the surface, this novel seems like one of simple murders and historicity, and while Süskind does both exceedingly well with his careful attention to detail, the underlying motifs become even more intriguing with further readings.

Suskind's writing paints such a vivid story, and engages the senses so beautifully, that there's a great deal to admire in this book. Getting swept along by the language, it's easy to fall into the grip of Suskind's storytelling skills and read a hundred pages of this book at a stretch. For that, I truly admire it. At the same time, I admit I felt a bit of a disconnect from this one, and as much as I could get swept along by the writing once I picked it up, I never felt any particular pull to come back to the novel once I'd put it down--in fact, if I hadn't been reading this quickly for a book club, I imagine it might have lingered on my reading shelf for months rather than only a week.

The story here is simple, but the character is so unsympathetic that I think one almost has to be compelled to keep going by the language, the incredible world- and character-building, and simple inertia. There's also a great deal of humor to be found in the book, and in the end, I'm glad to have read it. On some level, it felt like what Flannery O'Connor might have written if told to write a horror novel or gothic set in 18th-century Paris, but with as flowery a style as she could force herself to adopt. And I love O'Connor, so that's a compliment... but this book did read as a bit overly long for me, and I wish I'd felt more connected or had a better understanding of the main character.

All told, I'm glad to have read it, but I'm not sure I'll pick up another of Suskind's works. ( )

Bizarre and disturbing (but the descriptions of perfume-making are interesting.) ( )

"From start to finish, Perfume is a ridiculously improbable piece of verbose claptrap which the author himself evidently found impossible to take seriously for very long at a time....Since very little happens within Grenouille's mind, and he achieves with other characters no relations capable of development, the book requires a good deal of stuffing to achieve the dimensions of a small novel. The best of this material is several different listings of the materials and procedures involved in perfume making. Suskind has done his homework on the topic....The writing of the book is verbose and theatrical."
afegit per Nickelini | editaNew York Review of Books, Robert M. Adams (Web de pagament) (Nov 1, 1986)
 
Just as Grenouille can manufacture a perfume that infallibly conjures up the same response in anyone who senses it, so Mr. Suskind creates words that provide a satisfying illusion of another time. Grenouille the perfumer becomes a kind of novelist, creating phantom objects in the air, but Mr. Suskind himself is a perfumer of language. This is a remarkable debut.
 
A delight to the senses, disturbing serial killer, must read!

In eighteenth century France there lived a man who was one of the most gifted and abominable personages in an era that knew no lack of gifted and abominable personages.

Hij sloot zijn ogen en concentreerde zich op de geuren die hem vanuit het gebouw aan de andere kant toewaaiden. Daar waren de geuren van de vaten, azijn en wijn en de honderdvoudige zware geuren uit het magazijn, en de geur van de rijkdom die als fijn gouden zweet uit de muren transpireerde en tenslotte de geuren uit de tuin die aan de achterkant van het huis moest liggen. Het was niet makkelijk deze tere geurtoetsen uit de tuin op te vangen, want ze trokken slechts in smalle linten over de gevel van het huis heen omlaag door de straat. Grenouille onderscheidde magnolia's, hyacinten, peperboompjes en rododendron.. - maar er leek nog iets anders te zijn, iets moorddadigs lekkers, dat in deze tuin geurde, een geur zo exquis als hij in zijn leven nog niet - of toch, maar dan maar één keer - in zijn neus had gehad...Hij moest dichter bij deze geur komen.
“Never before in his life had he known what happiness was. He knew at most some very rare states of numbed contentment. But now he was quivering with happiness and could not sleep for pure bliss. It was as if he had been born a second time; no, not a second time, the first time, for until now he had merely existed like an animal with a most nebulous self-awareness. but after today, he felt as if he finally knew who he really was: nothing less than a genius... He had found the compass for his future life. And like all gifted abominations, for whom some external event makes straight the way down into the chaotic vortex of their souls, Grenouille never again departed from what he believed was the direction fate had pointed him... He must become a creator of scents... the greatest perfumer of all time.”
