When I sat down to interview Jessica Verday at Davis-Kidd bookstore in Nashville, I hoped to hear juicy details about how she came to write a paranormal teen romance inspired by The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. Well, I got that info (which you can read about here), plus an unexpected gift: perfume inspired by her book.
Abbey Browning, the main character in Verday’s novel, The Hollow, loves to create scents with various herbs and oils. (Perfume-making provides a distraction while she’s falling in love with Caspian, a mysterious guy she met at the Sleepy Hollow cemetery. . . )
Now, there are now real-life perfumes based on Abbey, Caspian and Kristen, Abbey’s best friend.
Product description from Verday’s blog:
Abbey: Clove, blood orange, honey, and red apples dance among a base of sandalwood and incense. Intoxicating. Lovely. Layered. Just like our heroine.
Kristen: Grapefruit, ginger, vanilla, and myrrh swirl together to create a sweetheart of a scent. What else could be a better fit for a best friend?
Caspian: Pumpkin pie, fall leaves, vanilla, and bonfire smoke make up this mysterious and luscious blend. Careful, too much will only leave you wanting more.
To win the perfume, read the profile and answer this question: What is the tentative title of book two in Verday’s trilogy? The first person to e-mail me (eliza at bookpage dot com) with the correct answer gets the perfume (which, from the box, smells great!).
