This article discusses the Netflix film The Perfumier, including the premise, release date, cast, and trailer.

The Perfumier (original title: Der Parfumeur) is a Netflix original crime thriller from Germany that the streaming giant is set to release next week. Here’s all the information we have on the upcoming release. 

The Perfumier premise

From Netflix: “To regain her sense of smell and get back her lover, a detective joins forces with a perfume maker who uses deadly methods to create the perfect scent.”

Our opinion of the premise

The Perfumier seems to take the notion of a murderer who kills his victims for their scent from the 2006 film Perfume: The Story of a Murderer, and bring it into the contemporary era. Judging by his other film credits, crime thrillers seem to be Nils Willbrandt’s specialty, and for this movie, he came up with a rather refreshing concept. Having a detective join forces with a killer so she can regain one of her senses is an intriguing idea. We’ll just have to wait and see how the execution pans out.
