Based on motives by the global best-seller of the same name by Patrick Suskind, the Perfume series shifts the action to the modern day and uses the book's idea of manipulating people through scent as a springing-off point. A young profiler investigating a series of brutal murders traces events back to a small cadre of boys at a boarding school who experimented with manipulating people using human scents.

manipulation at its finest
24 January 2019 | by hic66See all my reviews

I love foreign shows and movies because they often are so complex in plot and character. Hollywood stuff that we are fed fall pale in comparison. Perfume is well written and with 6 episodes, it does take advantage of the time to slowly unveil each character's past and present, including their sins. Everyone seems to have a secret to hide. The title perfume fits perfectly with the subject of manipulation (very heavy theme in this series) as well as a hunger for love. So imagine the chemistry of these two themes pairing, we get a spectacular chaos of complex characters who are flawed, where we will never know if we sympathize with them or not.
