Paper Passion Perfume – Smell like a Book

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

Ebooks are evil, I tell you! Gone will be that smell of new books when you walk into a library or bookshop. Well not if Steidl has it’s way. Designed by Geza Schoen, Gerhard Steidl, and Wallpaper* magazine, with packaging by Karl Lagerfeld and Steidl, Paper Passion is a fragrance based on the smell of new books.

Dab some behind the ears, splash some on your favourite Ebook reader; “To wear the smell of a book is something very chic.” 

Available for $115.
