"Jupiter and Antiope", a painting featured on many editions of Perfume.
I have been putting off writing this review for a couple of weeks now, so it's probably time I got my shit together and wrote something because I need to read a new book, dammit. The problem I have with this wrap up is that Perfume: The Story of a Murderer left me with so many conflicting and convoluted responses that I didn't really have an angle to use when the time came to write about it. In an attempt to resolve that problem, I have broken this review up into a number of pieces so that it's not just a massive mess of noise. (Hopefully.)
Be warned: this is a long post, and contains some spoilers.
