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.

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.
