Continuity mistake: In the first scene in Giuseppe Baldini's perfume shop, his employee comes in and starts setting three candles in a candelabra. He sets them very straight and upright, however after we cut to Guiseppe asking if he knows of Amor et Psyche and back to the shot of the candelabra again, all three candles are wonky. This is more than simple gravity could have caused. (00:27:30)
Jean-Baptiste Grenoble manages to break into Antoine Richis' home and completes his collection with Laura. As he finishes perfecting his formula, just as he's caught. On the day of his execution, he uses his perfume on himself, to cause the entire towns population to go into a mass erotic orgy, allowing him in all the confusion to flee. He then empties the contents of his entire concoction all over himself and is ripped to shreds by a frenzied mob.
Jean-Baptiste Grenouille: You want to make this leather smell good, don't you?
Giuseppe Baldini: Why of course, and so it shall.
Jean-Baptiste Grenouille: With Amor and Psyche by Pelissier?
Giuseppe Baldini: What ever gave you the absurd idea I would use someone else's perfume?
Jean-Baptiste Grenouille: It's all over you.
