Comparing covers: Perfume

When I wrote my weekly geeks post about PABD I had a look at the covers of “Perfume”. It seems that after the film came out they changed the cover to a more modern look instead of going with the original German one. The original definitely fits the time setting more than the new one, plus all the women were overwhelmed when asleep. The modern one has that urban serial killer feel to it. I prefer that style in general but am not sure whether I like it for this particular book. The Germans never changed the cover it seems, obviously the old one sells well enough. Which one do you like better?

  1. When I bought this book years ago before the movie came out, the movie cover was how I found out about said movie. Now, I’m normally one who shuns the entire movie cover copy of a book, but I think in this case I like the modern one better.
    I think that the woman’s body breaking apart into flower petals suits the way that their essense is stripped away from them, like the scent of a flower is for said perfume.
