In 1738 in Paris, a baby is born under a fishmonger's bloody table in a marketplace and abandoned. Orphaned, passed over to the monks as a charity case, already there is something about the tiny infant that is unsettling. No one will look after him; he is somehow too demanding and, even more disturbing, something is missing: he doesn't smell the way a baby should; indeed, he has no scent at all. Yet Jean-Baptiste Grenouille clings stubbornly to life, because he possesses an absolute sense of smell, and with it, he can read the world, discovering truths that elude ordinary men. As he leaves childhood behind and comes to understand his terrible uniqueness, his obsession becomes the quest to identify, and then to isolate, the perfect scent--that of life itself. Grenouille embarks on a monstrous quest, until the frenzy of his final triumph explodes in all its horrifying consequences

Diese Gabe führt ihn eines Tages zu dem berühmten Parfümeur Baldini (Dustin Hoffmann), der ihn als Lehrling aufnimmt. Schnell überflügelt der ansonsten schweigsame Sonderling seinen Meister in der Kunst des Duftmischens. Doch werden Düfte zu Grenouilles Obsession. Besessen von der Idee, menschliches Aroma zu konservieren und damit den vollendeten Duft zu komponieren, ermordet er zahlreiche junge Mädchen, deren Geruch ihn betören. Während in der Parfummetropole Grasse weitere unerklärliche Morde passieren, ahnt der Kaufmann Richis (Alan Rickmann), dass auch seine Tochter Laura (Rachel Hurd-Wood) in höchster Lebensgefahr schwebt.

Jean-Baptiste Grenouille is born under his mother's table at the fish market, onto a pile of muddy fish guts, establishing from the beginning his repulsion for putrid scents.

An opportunity to prove his worth to Parisian perfumist Giuseppe Baldini results in his immediate hire into a promising new career. His successes in perfume mixing are negated by a blinding obsession for capturing the sublime beauty of the human soul, which in his twisted logic requires the killing of young women to reduce their body fats to essential oils for the ultimate perfume
