Seller Comments:

Paper Passion Perfume captures the unique bouquet of freshly printed books. Designed by boutique perfumer Geza Schoen in close consultation with Gerhard Steidl and in collaboration with Wallpaper* magazine, the perfume expresses that peculiar mix of paper and ink which gives a book its unmistakable aroma, along with the fresh scent which a book opened for the first time releases. Schoen spent days in the depths of the paper-filled Steidl headquarters in Göttingen, sifting through books, papers samples and inks, to find inspiration for a perfume that is true to books, wearable, and which ages well in time-just like a good book. It took Schoen seventeen trials to preserve in his words, the right balance between the smell of paper as such and an enjoyable perfumistic aesthetic. The elaborate packaging of Paper Passion Perfume does more than justice to the perfume within. The packaging is a real book with a hidden cut-out compartment in which the bottle sits. The first pages of the book contain texts on the pleasures of paper and the Paper Passion project by Nobel Laureate Günter Grass, Karl Lagerfeld, Geza Schoen and Wallpaper* Editor-in-Chief Tony Chambers. The end product is a unique perfume, an homage to the luxurious sensuality of books and in Karl Lagerfeld's words, the silent smell of paper.

Seller Comments:

Boxed, 11.5x16, 24p, English edition. ISBN 9783869305011. This tells the story of a passion and a twisting plot to put the particular bouquet of freshly printed books in a bottle. Gerhard Steidl was first alerted to the importance of the smell of a book by Karl Lagerfeld, prompting a passion for paper and the composition of a scent on the pages of a book. To Wallpaper* magazine the pairing of the publisher with the perfumer seemed a natural partnership and so the idea for Paper Passion was born. Wallpaper* magazine commissioned master perfumer Geza Schoen to create a fragrance based on the smell of books to be part of the Wallpaper* magazine Handmade exhibition in Milan. Je hebt fysieke boeken achter je gelaten en bent overgeschakeld op digitale e-books, maar je mist de geur van een gedrukt boek? Paper Passion biedt de oplossing. Paper Passion is een geur van parfumeur Geza Schoen, die voor dit project samenwerkte met mode-icoon Karl Lagerfeld en uitgever Gerhard Steidl. Deze drie boekenliefhebbers willen de karakteristieke geur van gedrukte boeken in een flesje bottelen. 'De geur van een pas gedrukt boek is de beste geur in de wereld', laat Lagerfeld optekenen. Paper Passion wil de glorieuze sensualiteit van boeken vieren, op een moment dat veel mensen zich net afkeren van boeken. Tenzij je graag naar boeken geurt, is het geen aanrader om jezelf te besprenkelen met Paper Passion. Je kan dit parfum verstuiven in je leesruimte, of je digitale boekenlezer bij de aanvang van elke leessessie een vleugje Paper Passion meegeven.
