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.
