Jean-Baptiste Grenuille nasce nella Parigi del Settecento, nel luogo più mefitico della capitale: il Cimitero degli Innocenti. Orfano, brutto, apparentemente insensibile, ha una caratteristica inquietante: in una società non ancora asettica come quella contemporanea e impregnata di mille effluvi e miasmi, non emana alcun odore. È però dotato di un olfatto unico al mondo e il suo sogno è quello di dominare il cuore degli uomini creando un profumo capace di ingenerare l'amore in chiunque lo fiuti; per realizzarlo non si ferma nemmeno di fronte all'omicidio delle donne in cui trova traccia del sublime profumo dell'amore.

Because sometimes you just have to read about an 17th century perfumer who may or may not be the Anti Christ and goes on a killing spree, before starting aa giant omnisexual fuckfest and being voluntarily cannabilized. Ah literature. That's why I read you, the class. The class.
I was predisposed to love this book no matter what. I love perfumes. The fact that this book had blood and murder was just a bonus. For me, perfumes and scents are a visceral thing. I love perfume. I have never been a visual person, my memories are composed of layers of scent. I remember as a child, g Leggi tutto
“He possessed the power. He held it in his hand. A power stronger than the power of money or the power of terror or the power of death: the invincible power to command the love of mankind. There was only one thing that power could not do: it could not make him able to smell himself.” Perfume is a Leggi tutto

Although he is treated as a pariah by many for his condition, he possesses a parallel condition, a heightened sensitivity to aroma. It is his quest to experience life through smell, and Leggi tutto
I want my last 2 weeks back. I dove into this book expecting a hell of a lot more than I dragged out of it. From the very beginning I did not like the author's writing style and should have known then that this book just wouldn't be for me. This book is set in the mid-1700's France and centers around Leggi tutto
I had a heck of a time thinking who I'd recommend this to. It won a Fantasy award, yet I can't call it Fantasy. It's set in a bygone period, but it doesn't play with history, so it's not Historical Fiction. It's about a murder, yet it's not terrifying like Horror, nor is it a mystery. It's just the
Despite its name, Perfume is not a pleasant book. Quite the opposite, it is terrifying and gore for the most part. The perfume the author builds between the pages reeks. It is a combination of what is worse in humans: body odor, vileness, jealousy, pride, and finally murder. Since the novel is a clas Leggi tutto

This book was different and brilliant. The story of an orphaned boy born without a scent, but with an incredibly refined sense of smell, the book drags a bit in parts, but the ends justify the means, in more ways than one. All things considered, the book is a valentine to the beauty, elegance, and po Leggi tutto
