Dead Writers Perfume smells exactly how it should

Illustration for article titled Dead Writers Perfume smells exactly how it should

Imagine a scent inspired by the dead writers of our past. What would it smell like? It would most likely include black tea, vetiver, clove, musk, vanilla, heliotrope, and tobacco. Which is exactly what's inside J.T. Siems Sweet Tea Apothecary's new perfume, Dead Writers, a scent that should evoke, "the feeling of sitting in an old library chair paging through yellowed copies of Hemingway, Shakespeare, Fitzgerald, Poe, and more."

It makes us wonder, what would a specifically science fiction writer perfume smell like?

Very cool. I would have a shelf just for the Fantasy, Horror, & Science Fiction lines.

Not to use as perfume, of course, but to open & smell for inspiration while writing.

Please make another article if that happens?

I'd love to find out how the L. Frank Baum, Roald Dahl, Madeleine L'Engle, Ray Bradbury, Jules Verne, Bram Stoker, & Mary Shelley ones would turn out!
