Tricky subject matter but a gripping read

  • Book: Perfume
  • Location: Paris, The South of France (Le Midi)
  • Author: Patrick Suskind



Where did Suskind get the idea. A stunning if somewhat squirmy read, so incredibly evocative of smelly Paris in the 18th Century, and the beautiful hot smells wafting off the Massif Central, thyme, wild rosemary, crackling heat. Loved the film of the book, too
