Nirvana: 20 Things You Didn't Know About 'In Utero'
'Scentless Apprentice' was inspired by Patrick Süskind's 1985 novel 'Perfume', about a boy born without body odour, who stalks and murders virgins in search of the 'perfect scent'. Cobain said that he'd read it, "about 10 times in my life, and I can't stop reading it. It's like something that's just stationary in my pocket all the time. It just doesn't leave me."
