Karl Lagerfeld to Release Book-Inspired Fragrance, Paper Passion

Karl Lagerfeld to Release an Inspired-by-Books Fragrance

Besides fashion, among Karl Lagerfeld's interests are books, and that's exactly what has prompted him (along with publisher Steidl) to create Paper Passion, a fragrance inspired by the scent of books. The juice, formulated by perfumer Geza Schön, is said to contain a "fatty nuance."

While just what that fatty note could be or when the scent's exact launch date will happen is uncertain, one thing is known: the fragrance will be encased within a hollowed-out-inside hardcover book. Steidl also apparently sent Schön samples of printed and unprinted papers for inspiration.

Several lines have created book- or library-influenced scents in the past (see the widget below for examples), so it will be interesting to see how Lagerfeld's version stacks up. Pun intended.
