I'd like to know the title of the movie. There are not much I remember about it. But, I'll try my best.

  • I watched it around 2010. So the movie maybe around 2000-2008.
  • It is in English
  • Its genre maybe horror/thriller
  • The stalker seems attracted to women. But not sexually attracted. He seems to adore them (As I recall, there are no rape scenes).
  • His first victim is strangled/smothered to death
  • I think his job is a chemist. He is working with potions / solutions. He has a mentor
  • There's a scene in which he is embalming a woman (covered the woman with some sticky stuff)

I'll add some when I remember more.

I believe you're talking about Perfume: Story of a murderer. It's about a young man, with a really strong smell sense. It's actually based on a Novel.

From Wikipedia:

The film tells the story of Jean-Baptiste Grenouille (Whishaw), an olfactory genius, and his homicidal quest for the perfect scent.

  • I watched it around 2010. So the movie maybe around 2000-2008. (This movie was released in December 2005 in the US.)

  • It is in English. (It's a German/French/Spanish movie but its language is English.)

  • Its genre maybe horror/thriller (More like a thriller, not a horror).
  • The stalker seems attracted to women. (He is attracted by the woman's scent, so he stalks them.)
  • His first victim is strangled/smothered to death (Suffocates first victim).
  • I think his job is a chemist. (He becomes a perfume maker apprentice, thus working with potions and stuff.)
  • There's a scene in which he is embalming a woman, Here You go.

I will leave some screenshots to see if you can recognize it. This is the Killer
