Paper Passion – a perfume that is ‘the silent smell of paper’

Who would have thunk it. A perfume that smells like paper! Needless to say we llllllllove it. Pure genius, of the Karl Lagerfeld, Geza Schoen (master perfumer), Gerhard Steidl, and Wallpaper* magazine variety. Housed neatly inside the book, you’ll find a bottle of ‘Paper Passion’. The nifty packaging is designed by the talented Lagerfeld and Steidl. The scent of ‘Paper Passion’ is meant to relax you, just like when you read a book. That’s good to hear isn’t it? We’re not sure too many people want to be known for smelling like a library stacked full of old books collecting dust! The book tells the story of passion, and the twisting plot to put this particular bouquet of freshly printed books in a bottle. The text bits are by Karl Lagerfeld, Günter Grass, Geza Schoen and Tony Chambers. We’ll leave you with this uplifting little pearler from Mr Lagerfeld: “The smell of a freshly printed book is the best smell in the world.”
