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.

Compared to "Whispers in the Library"

Starts off sweeter, more vanilla heavy, than "whispers" -- I can see why some said it was a little more "old lady-ish"...However, it does eventually settle and its finishing scent later in the day is exactly like "whispers." I still prefer "Whispers" but since they're no longer making it, I will get this one as back up.

It’s exact

I’m never paying for replica perfume again. I was expecting to be disappointed and never write reviews but this brand is spot on. Thank you, thank you…. Please make a Kate by Kate moss and I’ll buy 20 bottles on first order… I’ve been searching for over a decade

My Signature Fragrance!!

I have been a loyal user of this perfume for three years now, and she is still my favorite fragrance! When I first tried Whispers in the Library, I was left a bit disappointed. I was expecting amber, a little bit of spice, and everything nice, but I was left disappointed! The dry down was extremely powdery, and it didn’t last long either. Alt’s Novel was exactly what I wanted out of Whispers in the Library but better! The sillage and lasting is a million tomes better than the original. It’s full of that academic ambery, vanilla, spiciness that I was yearning for in the original! This has been by far my most complimented fragrance. Whenever trying a new fragrance, I am a bit wary. I am surrounded by people almost all day every day, and I don’t want to smell unpleasant. But, Novel has never caused me any issues!! Absolutely lovvveee Novel.

Best perfume I have!!

A lot of cheaper perfumes tend to smell like alcohol even if people say it doesn't. This truly doesn't!! It is such a great scent without being overpowering. I do wish the scent lingered better because I would love to smell this all day. It's like using a vanilla scented wax warmer inside of a warm yellow lit library. It smells like republica jazz club but more feminine. I know this is a dupe for whisper in the library but I never got a chance to sample that one. This is truly a great scent.

Love this scent

I spray this everytime I read a book. It gives me the cozy library vibe. And it’s a legit dupe for Whispers in the Library from Replica. Smells amazing.

Beautiful Smell

At first I put on the perfume and hated it. When it dried down 30 seconds later, I fell in love. I could live in this smell. It does last very long. I’m going through the bottle so fast. What a beautiful smell! I was trying to find a dupe for haunted vanilla woods. It’s similar but not the same. However, I will wear this until the day I die. I’m ready to buy bottle 2, 3, 4, and 5!

Fantastic Fall Scent

I love this scent -- very good alternative for Whispers in the Library now that they're discontinuing that scent. The notes of vanilla keeps the perfume sweet while still maintaining the woodsy spices the scent is known for.
