Win a bottle of Paperback the perfume for book lovers

I love books. hardback books with beautiful covers, tatty old well thumbed books that have been read hundreds of time. Gleaming spine unbroken paperbacks. I like thrillers, romances, classics, poetry just give me a good book and I am a happy lady.

Oh and I love bookshops too  I love to see all these rows of book bursting with ideas and stories. Just perfect. Good coffee and a bookshop  = bliss.

So imagine my delight when I was asked if I would like to try Paperback the perfume version. It’s smells like your favourite second hand book shop – such a very cosy scent for Autumn..

Paperback

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 makes scents that are ‘real’ and ‘familiar’ rather than a concept – their first perfumes were called Dirt and Tomato! I rather like that!

I am enjoying wearing ‘Paperback.’  It smells cosy and comforting and clean. Just lovely.

It will be launching in Boots in September and will retail for £15.

Would you like to win a bottle?

    It’s funny, but the name of my favourite paperback is one to do with scent: The Fragrant Pharmacy by Valerie Ann Worwood (about essential oils) -my copy is well thumbed!
    These scents sound intriguing. Not sure I would want to try ‘Pizza’ but I do like the sound of ‘Thunderstorm’ and ‘Holy Water’ 🙂
