Perfume: The Story of a Murderer
I need a more intimate piece of clothing....
Set in the 18th century, a young boy from an orphanage is sent to work at a tannery. He has an extremely well developed sense of smell, and cannot tolerate the odours at the tannery. One day, he follows a young woman and accidentally kills her, but he takes the opportunity to smell her from top to toe. Later, he finds his natural career making perfumes, and sets out to recreate the smell of the dead girl, but this process requires a steady supply of dead young woman. As Jack the Sniffer launches his bloody after-hours activities, he finds himself enchanted by a beautiful redhead with an over-protective dad. He needs her dead to perfect his perfume, but the authorities are on his tail...
