Love books? Love perfume?
My friend Lilias just sent through this: Paper Passion.
I want to smell it!
Recently I got a small bottle of Comme des Garcons 2 which I adore – it’s meant to smell of Japanese calligraphy ink.
Having never smelled Japanese calligraphy ink, I can’t say if it’s an exact match but it does smell completely gorgeous and makes me think of scribes copying out texts in a temple while incense burns and paper walls glow with the heat of candles.
I think these would make an excellent pair for a poet who loves perfume!
