Perfumes Inspired by Dead Writers

What do you think perfumes based on individual dead writers might smell like? Here are a few suggestions:

  • Jane Austen: Darjeeling tea, snowdrops and pansies (flowers from her garden), meadow grass
  • Dorothy Parker: Whiskey sour, vanilla, mandarin, white musk
  • Edgar Allan Poe: Poppies, absinthe, sandalwood, and mold
  • Flannery O’Connor: Church incense, soap, vanilla, ginger
  • Jack Kerouac: Cigarettes, cheap beer, unwashed youth, patchouli, car leather
  • the Bronte Sisters: Heather, sea air, vetiver, primrose, black tea
