Perfume Video Game ReviewThe visual novel adaptation of the Perfumare text-based game is an excellent introduction to the world of fragrance. As a standalone experience, Perfumare is shorter and more accessible than the text-based sequel, Perfumare Avulsion. Moreover, it offers a quick teaser of the original game, which will be available in late 2019. The visual novel incorporates elements of romance and mystery. It also serves as a companion piece to the original title.
The Perfumare visual novel can be played alone, and the story is completely independent of the Perfumare text-based sequel. This visual novel reveals key scenes in the secondary plot. As a standalone, it offers an interesting introduction to the world of perfumery and the characters. As a bonus, Perfumare is faster than the text-based game. It's an intriguing gothic tale, which also includes themes of death and violence.
The composition of a perfume can be described as three sets of notes: the top note, the middle note, and the base note. Each note is created with the knowledge of the evaporation process and the smell of each note. Each stage is named after the scent that a person's breath will leave behind. The base notes gradually appear, a few hours later, as the last stage. The perfumer is often referred to as a "Nez" or a "Nas" in the fragrance industry.
