After my last post I was left wondering about what other literary scents we could get our hands on. So I did a little digging just as much for you, dear reader, as for myself and these are my results.
Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab, an online store specializing in gothic scents, is selling perfumes based off the novels of Neil Gaiman. They also offer perfumes with some literary, poetic, and mythical inspirations such as:
Hymn to Proserpine
I Died For Beauty
The Black Tower
La Bella Donna Della Mia Mente
Leanan Sidhe (W.B. Yeats)
Ode On Melancholy
Penny Dreadful (titled after the penny dreadful novels of yesteryear)
Poisoned Apple (from Snow White)
The Raven (Edgar Allan Poe)
Scherezade (1,001 Nights)
Tavern of Hell
Twenty-One (Dorothy Parker - whose own favorite scent was Coty's Chypre)
They also offer a collection called the mad tea party that features perfumes named for the characters in Alice in Wonderland
Perfumer Laura Tonatto as a promotion for a bookshop created five perfumes based on scents described in classic works like Swann's Way by Marcel Proust; Madame Bovary by Flaubert; The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilder; Perfume by Patrick Suskind; and Gabrielle D'Annunzio's The Child of Pleasure.
Alice in Wonderland
Bath and Body Works is offering scented bulbs
(if fact they have an entire limited edition line right now)
Konstantin of parfums d'Imperfiction available on his own site as well as Aus Leibe Zum Duft
(there you can also find his perfume based on the book Eleven Minutes)
Disney is offering perfume featuring characters from children's stories like Peter Pan, Cinderella, and Bambi. For a full list and availability visit here.
Apparently even J.K. Rowlings Harry Potter has had a perfume all of it's own as well.
For excerpts from literature involving scent I recommend scented pages. A few more can also be found at Memory and Desire.
For poems with the theme of perfume visit poetry-chaikhana.
And for anyone who has not read of seen Perfume: The Story of a Murderer I recommend you procure it in whatever way you see fit post haste!
