In the slums of 18th century France, Jean-Baptiste Grenouille is born with two “gifts”: an absolute sense of smell, as well no odor of his own. As a boy, he apprentices himself to a prominent Parisian perfumer who teaches him the ancient art of mixing precious oils and herbs. One day he catches a hint of a scent that will drive him to create the "ultimate perfume"—the scent of a beautiful young virgin. The premise of the story seemed interesting enough, however the character of Grenouille was difficult to understand—he is a sociopath with no redeeming value. The plot is gruesome and grisly and I felt had no ultimate point. I felt that part of my life had been stolen from me by reading this book! 1 out of 5 stars (maybe it should really be a 0!)
