Chosen by Nicole
A cross-genre novel about Jen-Baptiste Grenouille, a man with no body scent who murders virgins in order to turn them into perfume.
❖ “It sounds gruesome but the story is so well developed I kind of fell into it without realising how obscene it actually was. When you find yourself accepting the deeds of a psychopath, you know the book is well written! Totally riveting and obscene and beautiful and gruesome all at once. Probably not a book for everyone.” – Rachel
