For those who have everything: Paper Passion perfume

Karl Lagerfeld has teamed up with a book publisher and a perfume designer to create a scent for bibliophiles.

Fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld, book publisher Gerhard Steidl, and perfume designer Geza Schoen have joined forces to create a scent for bibliophiles everywhere. The team’s Paper Passion perfume aims to capture the unique odor of a freshly printed book using a mere handful of ingredients, including select “woody components.” Commissioned by Wallpaper magazine, the aroma is described on Steidl’s website as a celebration of the “gloriosensuality” of books. (The site also assures customers that “to wear the smell of a book is something very chic.”) The fragrance is packaged in a hollowed-out tome that features essays on the smell of paper.
