Say yes to perfumes wrapped in books

When it comes to fragrances, what’s inside the bottle is usually as important as what’s on the outside – which is why we were thrilled to find Fictions, a series of fragrances by Anthropologie wrapped in books. 

They have uniquely romantic names too, which sound a lot like chapters from a sappy novel (but we’ll take ‘em!). L.A. She Called But He Was Unreachable is refreshingly citrusy, with a burst of orange blossoms (middle notes), and base notes of ambergris and musk.

Then there’s Paris: She Met Him In Secret. The nose, Alexandra Monet, wanted to recreate a French kiss “a bit forbidden, always romantic”, and she does this with top notes of violet leaf, iris accords and a lingering whiff of leather.

London: She Knew He Was For-Ever, is where the illustrator Jon Contino reimagines the covers of books by William Faulkner and Stephen King. It has notes of honeysuckle and magnolia and a woody, honey-sweet base note. 

Weak in the knees yet? Us too.
