Thierry Mugler's Perfume Interpretations

Sherman Foundation Holidy Gift Guide #4.

As part of the marketing agenda for the new film “Perfume: The Story of a Murderer” you’d be right to expect an olfactory-related product tie-in. What you might not have anticipated is a coffret, or box, from Thierry Mugler Parfums, housing more than a dozen aromas, including a few whiffs of unpleasantry.

The film, opening Dec. 27, is based on the international best-selling book about a young 18th-century French perfumer who becomes a serial murderer to create the perfect scent.

The Thierry Mugler coffret — U.S. consumers will be able to buy it later this week for about $700 through the company's Web site — contains 15 odors, 14 of them tied to key portions of the book that are also highlighted in the film.

Maybe you could get that someone special the book instead.
