“Perfume: The Story of a Murderer” and Thierry Mugler “Perfume” Collection Coffret Sweepstakes.
Perfume: The Story of a Murderer is coming to the theaters near you. Personally, I am extremely excited. I have read the book as a child (bad idea!) and was sickened and did not really appreciate the olfactory "images" "painted" by Suskind. Re-reading it now, through a lense of my perfume obsession, I, of course, react in an entirely different way. I am enthralled.
Perfume is a story of murder and obsession set in 18th-century France. Jean-Baptiste Grenouille has used his unique talent for discerning the scents and smells that swirl around him to create the world’s finest perfumes, but his talent masks his burden. An orphan from birth, Grenouille has always felt alone in the world and different from any other person. Determined to connect with others, Grenouille tries to capture the irresistible but elusive aroma of young womanhood, traveling far and delving deeper into the intricate science of perfume-making. As he becomes increasingly – and recklessly – passionate about his art, his obsession to create the world’s most powerful fragrance takes a deadly turn. (From a press release by Paramount Pictures)
As you know, Thierry Mugler came up with an "olfactory interpretation" of the book. The Limited Edition Thierry Mugler “Perfume” Collection Coffret presents the 15 essences (created by perfumer Christophe Laudamiel), which capture and bring to life key moments and atmospheres from the book and film. On the official site for Perfume, there is a sweepstakes for the grand prize of a Collector’s Perfume Coffret from Mugler.
