Book-scented perfume

“The smell of a freshly printed book is the best smell in the world.”
— fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld

Do you love books enough to want to smell like them? A new perfume called “Paper Passion” attempts to “put the particular bouquet of freshly printed books in a bottle.” The perfume is a collaboration between perfumer Geza Schoen, publisher Gerhard Steidl and Wallpaper* magazine, with packaging by Karl Lagerfeld.

If you’re more of a light reader, Demeter makes a Paperback fragrance.

At $115 a pop for Paper Passion, I’m thinking it might be a whole lot cheaper just to hang out in the library more if you want to smell like books.
