A few days ago I watched the movie Perfume: The Story of a Murderer. So beautifully filmed! In the nineties I read the book “Das Parfum” and loved it. One day a good friend visited me and I told him I had read this fantastic story. While I was looking around to find the book he bolted upstairs and returned with a book he was reading and wanted to recommend to me. There we stood in the kitchen – he was holding the English edition “Perfume: The Story of a Murderer” and I was holding “Das Parfum”, the original German book…

From the wikipedia entry:

The song “Scentless Apprentice,” by the American grunge band Nirvana, was inspired by Perfume. It appears on their 1993 album In Utero. The band’s singer and guitarist Kurt Cobain often described it as one of his favorite books.

    They said the protagonist was not awful looking enough but I think he fitted perfectly. Hey, in today’s world one can order perfume directly from Grasse! And they still are doing things different than those well-known brands…

    I got it back then. It’s unique and interesting. I’ll have to reread it methinks.
