paper passion .... perfume for booklovers

Deirdre Brennan - Wednesday, September 12, 2012


Another find in Wallpaper magazine ... source book for the very best in design. A collaboration between German publisher Gerhard Steidl and perfumer Geza Schoen, with packaging and name chosen by Karl Lagerfield .. the scent of a freshly printed book, Paper Passion.  I have to admit I can't really imagine wearing this scent as a perfume !!!

Schoen .... iconoclastic perfumer specialising in conceptual scents

Steidl ... the publisher of high end art and photography books

Lagerield .... with a passion for fashion, art and music. His vision, a real book with pages and cut out for the perfume bottle.


The book does include essays on the subject of paper by each of those involved including Wallpaper Editor-in-Chief, Tony Chambers.

Available online, in selected concept stores, bookshops and perfumeries across the world.  I look forward to tracking this down, it has me intrigued ... how appealing is the scent of a freshly printed book and would you actually wear it as a perfume.
