Super-Virgoan Karl Lagerfeld and some other designers whose signs i don’t know have launched Paper Passions – a scent said to smell like “Proustian evocations of stationery, newly published novels and boxes of A4 foolscap.”
As someone with Mars proudly in Virgo, the sight of a stack of A4 foolscap does in fact turn me on but seriously?! Okay, the dead-tree aspect bugs me but even though i’m digital with every other media, i am back in love with books again. It has to do with not wanting to read a screen in bed. Plus my naturopath said looking at – say – a kindle after 9pm at night makes your pineal gland think it is dawn and you’re flooded with sleep-fuqing hormones.
