If you’ve stood anywhere near me recently, and heard the gentle whisper of, “My precious, my precious…” on the wind, it’s for good reason.
There is a book perfume in the world, gentle readers! A perfume that smells of freshly printed pages and ink and all my favorite things in a bottle.
I want it so much I can hardly stand it. It consumes my thoughts almost as much as the incredible novel I’m reading right now.
Paper Passion is the name of this lovely new fragrance. It’s a collaboration from perfumers Geza Schoen, designer Gerhard Steidl and Wallpaper* magazine, and it’s packaging was designed by Karl Lagerfeld and Steidl.
I haven’t caved and bought any yet because it’s pricey and I’m unemployed, but it is the first thing on my wish list! If anyone gets some, report on its awesomeness immediately.
