A perfume that smells like books

There’s been a lot of talk over the years about the human pheromone. Promises, promises and so far, nothing concrete. But don’t worry, we’ve got your back. If you’re the sort who desperately longs for the most well-read of book lovers, this scent is all you.

Introducing, Paper Passion. At $115.00 a bottle, this scent is just a little more pricey than the rest, but what do you expect when Karl Lagerfeld is involved? Oh, yes, fashion’s great designed the packaging himself.

“The smell of a freshly printed book is the best smell in the world,” he assures us. We couldn’t agree more.

Per the creators:
