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.
