Arrow Product details

Did you know that volatile organic compounds are released by aging paper, and that it is these that give an old book that very distinctive, pleasantly musty scent? Clever scientists at the University College London have even devised a method of olfactory-based analysis in order to accurately measure the condition and age of historical documents and literary works on the basis of their aroma.

The Library of Fragrance ‘Paperback’ Cologne celebrates our love affair with literature, with a backdrop of milky-vanilla sweetness, joined by delicate woody facets and just a touch of must and dust. It smells just like your favourite second hand bookshop.

The Library of Fragrance colognes can be layered to create scents that are unique to you. Mix and match any two, or more, to create combinations for every mood and occasion. Here are some suggestions to try with Paperback:

• To add a clean note, layer with Baby Powder
• To add a floral note, layer with Orange Blossom
• To add a fresh note, layer with Wet Garden
• To add a fruity note, layer with Peach
• To add a sweet note, layer with Fresh Coconut
• To add a woody / spicy note, layer with Oud

Unique perfume experience This product is great quality. The scent lasts all day and has a lot of interesting notes to it. It has quite woody undertones and I would personally say it smells like a spicy vanilla, which is very unique. Quite a pleasant scent if you're looking for something different and unique! Great for everyday wear or a special event as it has a great richness to the scent. November 3, 2015
Never judge a book by its cover! This is very unusual to say the least. It has a sort of sweet, musty fragrance which does smell like old fashioned library or how I imagine a Georgian reading room to smell. Reminds me of curling parchment with inky scrawl yest has an odd sweet higher note which I can't quite place. As with all of the Library of Fragrance scents it is great trying to add another one to it to make yourself even more unique and dare I say bizarre! I think this one goes well with the leather fragrance and the mahogany which gives even more authenticity and originality. Long lasting and very pleasant. Great fun perfumes to say the least.

So good I can't believe it! This is my first experience of a library of fragrance scent, and I have to say - wow. So, it smells like an old book. Literally. But that scent on skin just smells exceptional - I need to try more!! November 15, 2015
