Perfume: The Story of a Murderer is a 1985 literary historical fantasy novel (published originally in German as Das Parfum, pronounced [das paʁˈfœ̃ː]) by German writer Patrick Süskind. The novel explores the sense of smell and its relationship with the emotional meaning that scents may have.

The story mainly concerns Jean-Baptiste Grenouille, an unloved 18th-century French orphan who is born with an exceptional sense of smell, being able to distinguish a vast range of scents in the world around him. Grenouille becomes a perfumer but later becomes involved in murder when he encounters a young girl with an unsurpassed wondrous scent.
