Storyline

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.

Dark but really very Good
23 December 2018 | by mohinderchughSee all my reviews

It is claimed that This series is an adaptation of Sueskind's outstanding novel. I have not read the novel so can not say if it is true. Whatever information I got from internet regarding the novel it seems It is just loosely inspired by Novel idea of superior olfactory sense of Jean-Baptiste Grenouille . It has taken the basic idea but story seems to be completely different . It is very dark story full of nudity with a lots of twists specially in last 2 episodes. You will not be able to guess who is the killer till last episode. Story moves in two time zones . It will take two episodes and you will be fully engrossed in this complex story of love,lust ,hatred ,betrayal and friendship.Lead female detective who is very good in her job is also facing lots of personal issue. Expect the unexpected in the end. This series reveals to what extent human can go to get her or his love. This series may not be best but it is extremely good. If you love dark mystery than you must watch this. These type of European cinema is quite different from Hollywood Cinema.
