E gift an absolute sense of smell As a boy he lives Das Parfum PDF or to decipher the odors of Paris and apprentices himself to a prominent perfumer who teaches him the ancient art of mixing precious oils and herbs But Grenouille's genius is such that he is not satisfied to stop there and he becomes obsessed with capturing the smells of objec. I want my last 2 weeks back I dove into this book expecting a hell of a lot 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 meThis book is set in the mid 1700's France and centers around a horrid man who has no redeeming ualities other than the fact that he has likely the most perfect sense of smell in the history of mankind But he uses this skill for selfish and evil purposes and we get to come along for the story of his life if you could call it thatThe premise of the story seemed interesting enough and of course the title tells us that there is going to be murder so that always makes for interesting reading But I just found it to be extremely boring and tiresomeThe author obviously did his research relating to all things perfume the methods involved in it's creation both chemically and artistically and the importance of it's purpose in that point in history But he goes overboard with list after exhaustive list of ingredients or steps within a process or varieties to be found He can't help but describe every minute detail not just of perfume but of the landscape or the people I love descriptive writing I truly do but I do also like to have an exciting plot to keep me involved By the time he finished describing a scene I forgot why we were thereThis book lulled me to sleep and caused me to welcome distractions rather than turning the page so it took me a lot longer than a book of this length normally would I know that it is loved by many and was recommended to me by several whose opinions I value But this one just didn't cut it Even when the action picked up in the last 50 pages or so it became extremely bizarre and made me wonder what the heck the point was exactly

Das Parfum Die Geschichte eines MördersTs such as brass doorknobs and fresh cut wood Then Parfum Die Geschichte PDF #10003 one day he catches a hint of a scent that will drive him on an ever terrifying uest to create the ultimate perfume the scent of a beautiful young virgin Told with dazzling narrative brilliance Perfume is a hauntingly powerful tale of murder and sensual depravi. Due to a bit of a cold lately I couldn't smell the cinnamon sprinkled on my Frothy Coffee nor the aromas of fresh croissants walking past the patisserie or the preparation of an evening meal consisting of mussels cooked in garlic butter I love these smells they are just as important to me as taste damn this cold if only I had the nose of Jean Baptiste Grenouille having a cold wouldn't have made any difference I could smell the fresh fish markets from a mile away No interest though in hunting virgins for their scent thank God Süskind's novel which I didn't even realise has been so popular is Set in 18th century France and tells the grim story of one Jean Baptiste Grenouille a physically and emotionally abused orphan who is blessed with a supernatural gift the great sense of smell His frenzied obsession for odours guides him in a ghastly perverse way to search for the lost origin of his identity A genius of aroma Grenouille himself lacks a personal odor signifying an absence of individual identity but never mind he can just go about stealing that of others As he discovers his olfactory virtuosity he becomes increasingly obsessed with inventing new fragrances particularly his own which he attempts to create artificially by extracting and blending the corporeal scents of young virginal women he murders His great hope is to create the ideal perfume that will give him the magical essence of identity He despises the rest of mankind but still is solely driven by a desire for the attention and affection of others he wants to be top dog the hell with everybody else At the moment of his crowning glory however Grenouille knows that the aura of identity created by his magic perfume is an illusion and that it has been hate rather than love that drove him to become a genius of perfuming After this epiphany Grenouille goes barking mad and surrenders himself to a gory finaleThis book was good I enjoyed it for the most part but for me it wasn't great as viewed by a lot of others The plot is uniue and skilfully done not only in Grenouille’s characterization but also because Süskind has done his homework on 18th century France and the science behind perfume He describes Grenouille and his actions with a detached demeanor thereby heightening the horrific nature of Grenouille’s actions by not commenting on that nature this leads to the problem though of very little coverage in Grenouille's despair as he realises that everything he did was in vain and ultimately unsatisfying to both him and me as the reader And the repetitive prose and unfocused paragraphs had me skimming the odd page here and there I can see why it has had big appeal because on the surface the premise is so startlingly different so kudos there and he gets a range of emotions from sympathy when a filthy young orphan to disgust and hatred when he starts his murderous uestEven tough the chilling horrors of Grenouille's actions are painted in such realistic tones the novel on the whole never really got under my skin as I thought it would it's good in places but pretentious in others and summing up the central character he was just too two dimensional for my liking Not the sort of book I would normally read so at least it was a break from the normAlthough I am still a long way off wondering around in grandpa slippers I felt this novel was maybe intended for a younger audienceForget the fish guts cow hide boiled puppy and dead virgins I will stick to the mint lavender bergamot sandalwood and tonka bean of Jean Paul Gaultier A lightly scented 35
