A scent as comforting as snuggling up in your coziest blanket while rain trickles down your bedroom window as you slowly turn the pages of your favorite book is what makes up the fragrance we call Novel.
Subtly sweet, dry, and warmly atmospheric. The wood notes and the pepper (which is mild) combine to evoke that smell of old paper and binding glue. Meanwhile, the dusty vanilla is the beautiful fiction of this Novel that although is not sweet. It’s the fantasy itself that is; the fantasy of whiling away the hours in some old-world library full of secluded nooks, lamps, and coziness.

Very pleasant scent. Subtle but not weak. Not too masculine. Strongly vanilla.
I got this for my husband as he is a fan of Maison Margiela Replica's Whispers in the Library. He says that this is the exact dupe! Will be purchasing more!
I want to bathe myself in this scent.
I am in love with this fragrance. It truly lasts all day with the lightest of applications, without being overpowering. It isn't quite the same as the scent it is inspired by, but it's a lovely perfume just the same.
This is the perfect fall/winter scent that I’ve been looking for. I love how warm it is, and a little goes a long way. My only issue is that I tend to cough whenever I spray it, no matter where I spray it and how much I use, but that’s just me.
It smells so good and lasts all day. I was amazed at how the scent lingers but is not overpowering.
It smells great and last a long time! The pricing is a lot more better than other brands and it's well worth it
It definitely smells like books, but it also has a nice and slightly sweet vanilla smell as a lighter top note. Lasts all day. It isn’t overpowering, so if you’re like me and work in an office and don’t want to offend anyone by spraying an obnoxious-smelling perfume and you also love the smell of books, this is for you. I love it. My boyfriend loves it. My parents love it. So worth it!
I can’t compare to Replica as I haven’t used it. However this scent reminds me of old books, historical university, fall leaves, candlelight, and history. Beautiful scent that can be used dressed up or casual. It warms down beautifully and last for about 10 hours. My new go to
I like this fragrance, it’s really good for fall, it’s a scent that makes me feel cozy
