Art comes in all forms — paper and perfume. Click here to get both.

This is a bibliophile’s dream come true… and, perhaps the best marketing campaign for a perfume that sounds like it might smell like my grandmother’s attic: old and musty.

The price is no joke.  This little bottle here sells for $98.  Don’t believe me?  Check it out for yourself HERE.

But before you totally dismiss this gift, which was launched in Milan of 2012, take in account that it is not just a perfume but a book as well… put together in “collaboration with fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld, Wallpaper magazine, avant-garde perfumer Geza Schoen, and German fine-art publisher Gerhard Steidl” among others.

Paper Passion boasts of having the “chic and wearable smell of a freshly printed book” while including essays by Lagerfeld, Schoen, Wallpaper editor Tony Chambers, and Nobel laureate Gunter Grass.

Perfume: 50 ml. Book: 4 ½” x 6″.
