Powell-Eau-de-Bookstore-Fragrance

No list of iconic, famous or renowned bookstores is complete without Portland’s Powell’s–aka the City of Books. This half a century old family business that encompasses an entire city block and about a million books is the literal cornerstore of the neighborhood, but it’s also become a cultural touchstone over the decades. While shopping for books in person isn’t quite exactly the experience that it used to be, Powell’s Books is bringing one of their customers most missed experiences–the riveting scent of books–to a home and body near you with their upcoming ‘Eau de Bookstore’ Fragrance. This limited-edition fragrance is said to “contain the lives of countless heroes and heroines. Apply to the pulse points when seeking sensory succor or a brush with immortality.” What’s more, with the combination of scents that actually references books, wood, violet, old paper and a general sense of wonder for things long past–this unisex fragrance checks all the boxes. Powell’s Books ‘Eau de Bookstore’ Fragrance is available for pre-order now.
