The Scent of a New Book: Paper Passion Perfume

Want to smell like a new book? There’s a scent for that: Paper Passion, created by a famous perfumer after a German publisher said his favorite smell was that of  “a freshly printed book.”

The perfume comes packaged in a white-bound book, designed by Karl Lagerfeld, with pages cut out to hold the bottle. It was released this month, and retails for $98.

I do like the smell of a new book, but if I had to assign it a gender, it would be masculine. I'm surprised this is being marketed as a perfume and not a cologne. Either way, a cute idea.

@ACarroll -- Huh, I'd never thought about it! I'm curious to see how close it does smell to a new book...
