    Question Niche Parfum that smells like the pages of a book?

    Hello, I am looking for a niche expensive parfum (on Amouage level) that smells like the pages of an old or new book. That wood smell is so good. Price doesn't matter. Any ideas?

    While unaware whether GFT ca be considered as niche, the closest and so far best as well as most conclusive sensation ever gotten/experienced comparable to the pages of a book scent, even more the luxury and/or vintage version of this was with GFT Spanish Leather.

    Out of all niche, designer, artisan/alternative (upscale/limited edition but possibly different from designer exclusives and/or niche), bio/organic perfumes and even mass market, budget ones tested so far GFT Spanish Leather is to this point the fragrance rendition of a good book, in a limited/collectible edition of its, bound in priciest, classiest and craftiest leather while also retaining/conveying, in a pleasant and exciting way, a certain old paper scent.

    Neil Morris Vanille Rosé smells like roses and old books. To quote from a certain movie, "Historical babes!" I really love it. It reminds me of good perfume in an old library. Fairly unisex. Samples available.

    Meo Fusciuni Notturno smelled of ink on paper, but was really a poor performer!

    And Lampblack by Bruno Fazzolari has an “india ink” vibe to it, making you think of printer’s ink...

    I love this house, as well as Amouage...they aren't really alike in any way per se, but I appreciate both.

    Patchouli Indonesien would fit the bill especially in the dry down

    Farmacia SS. Annunziata - Ambre Nera. It reminds me of the pages of an old scholarly book.

    Jovoy Private Label has papyrus and leather which reminds me of the pages of old leather-bound books.

    To me Dzing! Smells like pulpy, inky cardboard and paper and 1740 hdp smells like a sweet, musty old library.

    Biblioteque - Byredo has this element. I think it's a bit too fruity, but there's an unmistakable "library/book" accord in there.

    Smells like old books, it’s a remarkable fragrance.

    Something with clean sandalwood and chalk immediately comes to mind when i think of new books. Not sure if chalk is being used in fragrances though?
    Or did i just come up with a million dollar idea? lol
