There is a woman I have been seeing in my dreams lately. But until now she was always on the fringe, never the center of attention. I have never seen her face or who she is. She is always surrounded by other people or is hidden in darkness or her hair covers her face.
This morning I had a dream where she was the central character and I wasn't in it. I was looking at her from an outsider's perspective.
She was searching for a serial killer who had been somehow killing off people she knew. No one knew how he was doing it.
I remember only the last parts of the dream but I'm sure there was a lot more before it.
She was standing in a busy market square, in front of a shop. The environment, the people seemed to be English or maybe of some other European country.
She comes face to face with the killer. The killer looks like the guy from the movie Perfume. He reveals to her that he had been using a certain corrosive undetectable salt to finish of his victims and that she is the last.
She starts running.
Throughout the dream I still couldn't see her face.

As Gaston Bachelard has shrewdly observed (3), scent or perfume
in its association with the general symbolism of the air is tantamount to the wakes
or tracks that mark the passage of solid bodies through the atmosphere, and
consequently symbolic of memories or reminiscences. Whereas the pure, cold air
of mountain heights is associated with heroic and solitary thought—in St. John of
the Cross quite as much as in Nietzsche—a scent-laden atmosphere is expressive
of the mind saturated with emotion and with nostalgia. The over-enthusiastic
application of the laws of correspondences has led some people to lay down
hard-and-fast symbolisms for every particular smell. It is feasible, however, to
pick out some of the basic and characteristic significances attaching to particular
smells and to arrange them in serial order so that they constitute a scale of values
equivalent to those of colours, textures, shapes and all phenomena that are characterized by both continuity and discontinuity and that express the graduated
differentiations of Oneness.
