  • Theme Of Death In Perfume

    corpse in order to reflect her negative impact on Grenouille. Giuseppe Baldini’s death is the most dramatically clear representation of a positive death. He treated Grenouille with more respect than he’d ever received, and taught the young boy everything he needed to know to live his dreams. “Maître Baldini fell asleep and awoke no more in this life.” (Süskind 111). Süskind portrays this death in a nearly poetic manner, reflecting the so to speak poetic ending of his life. This allows the reader to see the colossal difference between the negative impact of Gaillard and the positive influence of Baldini.

Whereas motley generally describes unpleasant odors, this assortment of various scents represents the inner machinations of Baldini’s life, the individual components of the art that makes him so content.
