New to My Library – Paper Passion Review

paper passion perfume

Back in June I posted about Paper Passion, the fragrance by Geza Schoen, Gerhard Steidl, and Wallpaper* magazine, with packaging by Karl Lagerfeld and Steidl. I received my book/bottle a few weeks ago and have been meaning to post photos but am just now getting around to it.

The packaging is very impressive and a true collector’s piece. I can’t say that I love the fragrance or that it smells like paper, but I still love this fragrance because the packaging and idea behind it are so clever. For those of you wondering what it smells like, it has a very strong alcohol smell to it and reminds me of rubbing alcohol. I know, not very pleasant at first, but the strong alcohol scent fades quickly and you’re left with a very clean, simple scent.

You can order Paper Passion on Amazon.com.

CHANEL Haute Couture Film by Trevor Undi

Trevor Undi has made a film of the Chanel Haute Couture Autumn-Winter 2012/13 collection set to the tune of Garment (For a Garment) by Alva Noto. I love the lighting and how the models have a halo of light around them. The varying speeds from slow motion to fast give us a a sense of movement and by seeing the models walk in slow motion you really get to see the details of the garments and how they move with the body. I really enjoyed this video and I hope you do too…

Chanel Coco Noir Out Now

chanel coco noir
I was at Macy’s in Union Square, San Francisco yesterday and was happy to see that they were one of the forty doors chosen to launch Chanel Coco Noir. There was a really cool black display that explained the scent and displayed the bottles. I couldn’t get a really good picture because the lights were reflecting off the box but take my word for it, it was lovely. I also got to sample the scent before the launch – yay! I tried it on and it was pretty and definitely reminiscent of Coco – it seemed like a good mix of Coco and Coco Mademoiselle. I think I was hoping for something more Oriental. I was lucky enough to score a sample vial so I’ll be wearing Chanel Coco Noir for the next few days and I’ll decide whether to get a bottle based on how it wears. I have to say that I’m tempted to get it just for the bottle though – the black bottle is beautiful in person!

Coco Chanel Capsule Collection – Vintage Jewelry Sale on 1st Dibs

1st Dibs Chanel Vintage Coco Chanel Birthday Sale
Douglas Rosin presents a Coco Chanel capsule collection of vintage jewelry for sale on 1stDibs to commemorate the eve of Coco Chanel’s 129th birthday on Sunday. I gave you a preview of the 1stDibs Chanel birthday sale yesterday but I’ve taken screenshots of the entire sale and editorial they put together. It’s informative, gorgeous and so inspiring. I love seeing earlier creations because I feel like they give us a glimpse into who Coco Chanel was. One piece is more gorgeous than the next – I love the excess of it all. It’s obvious why Coco Chanel is responsible for making costume jewelry popular. Enjoy, and hopefully you might even be able to buy something!

Visit and shop the Douglas Rosin Vintage Chanel sale on 1st Dibs.
