Anthropologie's library of fragrance

December 4, 2009 |  2:11 pm

A Rather Novel Collection Now there’s one more well-packaged and vintage-feeling product to obsess over at Anthropologie, with the launch of its first line of fragrances, called “A Rather Novel Collection." Volume 1 includes six scents inspired by tea from around the world.  The box that houses the perfume bottle looks like an old book, and each scent’s name is based on the place the tea originated.

Silk Road Caravan contains notes of white tea buds, calla lilies, sheer vanilla and white musk, while a headier 1856 Darjeeling has stronger layers of bergamot, cedar wood and amber.

Each bottle is $48 for 1.7 ounces and available at Anthropologie stores. They make a great holiday gift or a little personal present to add to your scent “library."
