Jean-Baptiste Grenouille, born with a superior olfactory sense, creates the world's finest perfume. His work, however, takes a dark turn as he searches for the ultimate scent.
Other directors interested in making this film were Martin Scorsese, Milos Forman, and Stanley Kubrick. In 1990, Roman Polanski gave an interview, in which he said Producer Claude Berri wanted him to direct.
Quick. We can't hold them back much longer. Hurry. Come on!
When Grenouille meets the perfumer, at his house/laboratory, he knows where all the substances are, although he has never been there before. He is able to do this due to his heightened sense of smell, he is able to work out where specific substances are by the scent they give off.
