Booklicious: Scent Stories: Smell Like Your Favorite Author

June 16, 2010


When I think of perfume, this is about the last thing that would come to mind. Scratch that - I don't know that it'd ever come to mind. (Guess that's why I'm no designer!) No surprise that it's the packaging for a men's cologne, then. I love the cohesiveness of the whole package - it's all tied into the literature theme, from the inkwell-inspired shape to the arresting tops.

Ah&Oh Studio explains the design process:

At the beginning we were concentrating on the idea of the scent itself. We found inspiration in the great, dark literature and distinctive, strong characters. We tried to describe the dark sides of men's nature with line of scents named after famous writers.
We packed the scents into bottles which resemble both old glass perfume bottles and the classic shape of the inkwell. We made them white, added black, strong lettering and heads of characters which loosely recall the authors' famous masterpieces.

So, what do you think each smells like?

Oh. My. Goddess.

Is this real? Because if it's real, I HAVE to have it. For the sake of its amazing awesomeness.

They make it sound like they packaged real perfume, but I can't find anything about where to buy it. This would be amazing, though.
