| Dark and sinister yet enthralling and gripping
This is the first German show I've ever watched and I have to say I am impressed. Perfume kept me hooked throughout the whole season and is quite unexpected. For instance the last episode was a complete surprise but also wrapped things up very nicely. The characters are very real and flawed to an extent that there aren't really any character that I even liked. They all seemed, for a lack of a better term, like bad people. But that is what made this show so interesting. The theme itself, although inspired by the book and film of the same name, explored the sensation of scent a bit more and dwells into human psychology and the desire everyone has to be loved and appreciated. Although be warned, this tv series is definitely quite dark and in some moments even repulsive, so I would say it's not for the faint hearted. In conclusion, if you are into dark European crime thrillers and don't mind reading subtitles, check it out, as I personally feel this show is the highlight of Netflix 2019 so far.
