Beautiful writing, a book filled with scents and absurdity. Perfume was recommended to me by my literature professor and I enjoyed the hell out of this book. From beginning to end the book gripped my attention. Definitely recommend. ( )

Fascinating but unpleasant. It's unusual to have a book in which the protagonist is a thoroughly unlikeable villain with no redeeming qualities. ( )

Our sense of smell and how it can trigger emotional feelings and memories is used in Perfume: The Story of a Murderer by Patrick Suskind as we read about Jean-Baptiste Grenouille, an unloved orphan in 18th century France who is born with an exceptional sense of smell but without a personal scent of his own. This young orphan exhibits all the characteristics of a psychopath as he has no sense of empathy toward people or animals and only cares about how he can use them to his advantage.

After a very difficult young life, he is able to talk his way into becoming apprenticed to one of Paris’ successful perfumers but in his search for new smells he encounters a young girl with a wondrous personal scent. He murders her simply to have access to that scent. Eventually he leaves Paris in an attempt to learn new techniques so that he can preserve an even wider range of odors. Although he becomes increasingly disgusted with people and spends some time living as a hermit, he soon heads to the south of France and works for a perfumer there. He also finds another young girl whose scent makes him believe that he can develop a perfume that would hypnotize people into thinking the wearer is god-like. In his quest for developing this perfume he murders more young women in order to use their body parts to evolve the fragrance that he is working on.

Perfume: The Story of a Murderer is a gruesome, fantasy tale in which the author blends both factual information and fairy-tale story telling about a murderer and his obsessive quest for a perfect perfume. I found the information and facts about the manufacture of perfume to be very interesting but, this was a difficult book to enjoy due to it’s dark themes. However, the author gives us well written prose that elevates the story and makes us ponder upon the importance of fragrance. ( )

I liked the first 100 or so pages, basically up until he fucks off into the mountains, then it turned dull. I also found the writing style overly wordy while not actually saying anything or moving the plot forward. ( )

Os aromas são incrivelmente poderosos, frequentemente basta um único travo para nos lembrarmos de uma cena inteira de infância. Sendo, do mesmo modo, suficiente sentir um perfume, para nos fazer lembrar um familiar ou amigo.
Tendo isto em conta entrega-te ao que vais ler no livro.

“ᴏᴅᴏʀꜱ ʜᴀᴠᴇ ᴀ ᴘᴏᴡᴇʀ ᴏꜰ ᴘᴇʀꜱᴜᴀꜱɪᴏɴ ꜱᴛʀᴏɴɢᴇʀ ᴛʜᴀɴ ᴛʜᴀᴛ ᴏꜰ ᴡᴏʀᴅꜱ, ᴀᴘᴘᴇᴀʀᴀɴᴄᴇꜱ, ᴇᴍᴏᴛɪᴏɴꜱ, ᴏʀ ᴡɪʟʟ. ᴛʜᴇ ᴘᴇʀꜱᴜᴀꜱɪᴠᴇ ᴘᴏᴡᴇʀ ᴏꜰ ᴀɴ ᴏᴅᴏʀ ᴄᴀɴɴᴏᴛ ʙᴇ ꜰᴇɴᴅᴇᴅ ᴏꜰꜰ, ɪᴛ ᴇɴᴛᴇʀꜱ ɪɴᴛᴏ ᴜꜱ ʟɪᴋᴇ ʙʀᴇᴀᴛʜ ɪɴᴛᴏ ᴏᴜʀ ʟᴜɴɢꜱ, ɪᴛ ꜰɪʟʟꜱ ᴜꜱ ᴜᴘ, ɪᴍʙᴜᴇꜱ ᴜꜱ ᴛᴏᴛᴀʟʟʏ. ᴛʜᴇʀᴇ ɪꜱ ɴᴏ ʀᴇᴍᴇᴅʏ ꜰᴏʀ ɪᴛ.”

A história tem lugar em França, Paris, num período muito negro, no século XVIII, a partir do nascimento de Jean-Baptiste Grenouille, uma criança com uma diferença em relação ao resto: Nasce com a capacidade de cheirar tudo e todos no mundo que o rodeia. A sua capacidade só pode ser definida como sendo extraordinária.

Grenouille não vive uma vida normal, a vida torna-se cruel. Abandonado pela mãe à nascença, maltratado por educadoras de infância, entregue a um orfanato deplorável, submetido a trabalhos quase exaustivos. Não recebeu qualquer forma de afeto, nem sequer qualquer educação. Durante os primeiros anos da sua vida tem de ser um sobrevivente.

“ʜᴇ ꜱᴜᴄᴄᴇᴇᴅᴇᴅ ɪɴ ʙᴇɪɴɢ ᴄᴏɴꜱɪᴅᴇʀᴇᴅ ᴛᴏᴛᴀʟʟʏ ᴜɴɪɴᴛᴇʀᴇꜱᴛɪɴɢ. ᴘᴇᴏᴘʟᴇ ʟᴇꜰᴛ ʜɪᴍ ᴀʟᴏɴᴇ. ᴀɴᴅ ᴛʜᴀᴛ ᴡᴀꜱ ᴀʟʟ ʜᴇ ᴡᴀɴᴛᴇᴅ.”

O estudo da personagem constitui um dos pontos fortes do livro, recorrendo ao odor para explorar o desejo, a obsessão, a perfeição.
Grenouille é alguém extremamente perigoso, mas os criminosos também se encontram noutros lugares e dominam a sua existência. O que levanta a questão, a origem do mal é fruto das circunstâncias?

É o epítome de uma humanidade despojada e crua, desprovida de todas as aparências, completamente centrada em si mesmo, vazia de sentimentos, comandada pelo seu desejo de obter o que quer, independentemente dos meios para o conseguir.
Grenouille não tem qualquer odor e, como tal, perde-se numa escuridão à qual não consegue escapar, que o impele numa busca incessante para criar um perfume que permita conferir-lhe humanidade. E um perfume que lhe permita controlar a humanidade.

“ʜᴇ ʀᴇᴀʟɪᴢᴇᴅ ᴛʜᴀᴛ ᴀʟʟ ʜɪꜱ ʟɪꜰᴇ ʜᴇ ʜᴀᴅ ʙᴇᴇɴ ᴀ ɴᴏʙᴏᴅʏ ᴛᴏ ᴇᴠᴇʀʏᴏɴᴇ. ᴡʜᴀᴛ ʜᴇ ɴᴏᴡ ꜰᴇʟᴛ ᴡᴀꜱ ᴛʜᴇ ꜰᴇᴀʀ ᴏꜰ ʜɪꜱ ᴏᴡɴ ᴏʙʟɪᴠɪᴏɴ. ɪᴛ ᴡᴀꜱ ᴀꜱ ᴛʜᴏᴜɢʜ ʜᴇ ᴅɪᴅ ɴᴏᴛ ᴇxɪꜱᴛ.”

O que fará Grenouille para captar tal essência?

O estilo da escrita com tanta eloquência e riqueza, sem nunca ser exagerado, é um dos destaques.
Sinistro, muito inquietante, ao mesmo tempo, com passagens com humor e uma experiência de grande encanto. Uma celebração para os sentidos e em simultâneo repulsiva.
Durante o avançar de páginas, alguns odores desagradáveis são descritos, contudo, também se pode encontrar muitos aromas acolhedores e há muito para aprender sobre como os perfumes eram feitos.

Um livro para saborear cada descrição, cada página, até às últimas palavras. ( )

1986
Patrick Süskind
Le parfum
traduit de l'allemand par B. Lortholary, Fayard
«Süskind a conçu une magnifique histoire où même la mort et l'assassinat sont teintés de poésie.» (Lire, avril 1986)
 
"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.”
