Perfume: The Story of a Murderer (film) Quotes

Alan Rickman as Antoine Richis

  • (Alan Rickman) "Forgive me -- my son."
  • (Alan Rickman) "Why did you kill my daughter?"
  • (Ben Whishaw) "I just needed her."
  • (Alan Rickman) "Very well, but remember this -- I'll be looking at you when you're laid on the cross and the twelve blows are crashing down on your limbs. When the crowd is finally tired of your screams and wandered home, I will climb up through your blood and sit beside you. I will look deep into your eyes -- and drop by drop I will trickle my disgust into them like burning acid until -- finally -- you perish."
  • (Alan Rickman) "Whatever his insane scheme is -- it will surely be incomplete without you"
  • (Alan Rickman) "Last night I dreamt you were dead."

  • (Councillor 1) "Have you no faith in the power of our holy mother Church?"

Dustin Hoffman as Giuseppe Baldini

  • (Dustin Hoffman) "Because it's a legend, you numbskull."
  • (Dustin Hoffman) "Talent means next to nothing, while experience acquired in humility and hard work means everything."
  • (Dustin Hoffman) "Now pay attention to what I tell you. Just like a musical chord, a perfume chord contains four essences, or notes, carefully selected for their harmonic affinity. Each perfume contains three chords: the head, the heart and the base, necessitating 12 notes in all. The head chord contains the first impression, lasting a few minutes before giving way to the heart chord, the theme of the perfume, lasting several hours. Finally, the base chord, the trail of the perfume lasting several days."
  • (Dustin Hoffman) "Mind you, the Egyptians believed that one can only create a truly original perfume by adding an extra note, one final essence that will ring out and dominate the others. Legend had it that an amphora was once found in a pharaoh's tomb, and when it was opened, a perfume was released, after all those thousands of years, a perfume of such subtle beauty, and yet such power, that for one single moment every person on earth believed they were in paradise. 12 essences could be identified, but the 13th, the vital one, could never be determined."
