Anthrolopolgie's novel perfumes

December 4, 2009 |  4:08 pm


Anthropoligie has launched its first line of perfumes, designed to resemble books lined up on a shelf. Called A Rather Novel Collection, it leans heavily on storytelling, using ideas of place and time and, just to confuse people like me, focus on the theme of tea.

Taverns & the Hague, for example, is not meant to evoke stale beer and reams of paper but smells of exotic Oolong spiced with mandarin. 5 O'Clock at Belvoir Castle -- a great name -- is described as "crisp bergamot and heady jasmine, sandalwood and damp moss."

Each bottle retails for $48. All the Rage, our style blog, suggests adding it to your "scent library."
