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

Paris im Jahre 1738: Auf einem Fischmarkt zwischen Unrat und stinkenden Abfällen kommt Jean-Baptiste Grenouille (Ben Whishaw) zur Welt. Sehr früh bemerkt er, dass er einen äusserst ausgeprägten Geruchssinn besitzt und die Welt der Dürfte intensiver wahrnehmen kann als jeder andere Mensch. 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.
