All tracks from score Perfume


Reinhold Heil, Johnny Klimek, Tom Tykwer

Director Tom Tykwer’s English-language adaptation of Patrick Süskind’s 1985 German-language novel tells the strange, haunting and beguiling story of an 18th Century French outcast whose obsession with capturing the perfect scent entails another obsession… murder.

As per usual, director Tykwer himself collaborated on the score with regular composing partners Johnny Klimek and Reinhold Heil, writing and recording substantial portions of the score even before production had begun, oftentimes even playing the music during shooting to create a mood. The result is a grand, free-flowing, emotionally fluid orchestral performance – courtesy of the Berlin Philharmonic and conductor Simon Rattle – that frequently feels more like a symphonic suite than a film score. Though each of the cues is dazzling in its own way, it’s the totality that most impresses with dense, richly-orchestrated tracks like the florid, haunting "Distilling Roses," the sumptuously lyrical "Grenouille’s Childhood" and the swirling, furiously passionate "Perfume, Distilled" combining to create an emotionally complex portrait of genius at once dark and delirious, rapt and mysterious.
