Based on Patrick Sueskind's famous novel of a deadly obsession in Paris in the middle of the 18th century: Jean-Baptiste Grenouille, an orphan from birth, develops a superior olfactory sense which he uses to create the world's finest perfumes under the tutelage of a one-time successful parfumier Giuseppe Baldini. Obsessed with the idea to encapsulate human aroma for the ultimate perfume, his work takes a dark turn.
