When I was still a hobbyist perfumer, I worked in an old bookshop. More often than not, as soon as a customer walked through the door, they would take a deep breath and comment on the shop's wonderful aroma. The soft vanilla base, the woodsy heart, and a dry, smoky hint of leather in the scent of old books contain the magic to evoke memories of limitless stories and fairy tale endings.

The ghosts of aging wood pulp and the ripening binding materials of the books would slowly float into my clothes and hair during the day. Every evening when I returned home, my husband would pull me close and tell me how I smelled as lovely as a library. It was then that I knew I wanted to capture that fragrance in a bottle

OLD BOOKS was born, and it is now the signature scent of the Literary Classics Perfume Collection.

This perfume contains pure essential oils and botanically-derived fragrance oils in a carrier of organic rice bran oil. It is 100% vegan, carefully crafted by hand, and it arrives in an amber glass bottle. 5ml bottles include a gift box. All of our product packaging is completely recyclable.

I love everything about this! The "old books" smell is rich and inviting, also kind of intoxicating for your senses. It's pure happiness and enjoy ...even my husband loved it! Which is rare!!! The packaging it came in as positively beautiful. And they even sent an amazing sample of smoke and mirrors which also was a win!!! (Sort of haunting, but calming) I will probably have to buy a full size bottle of it too! A lot of sents don't last very long on my skin. But this one had a really nice long intensity. It wasn't overpowering to others but I could smell it which kind of gave me a sense of peace. I will definitely purchase again!! Thank you!

Every scent I've ever purchased from this shop has been incredible. Old Books is amazing, and truly evokes that cozy feeling of sitting in a comfy chair with an old dusty book. Its so familiar, yet mysterious, and just wonderful. I'm forever a return customer!

This is absolutely wonderful. I love the little box it came in filled with, and the mini roller for the perfume is adorable! It's so portable and convenient. But the best part is the actual perfume. I've tried a lot of "book" smells, but this one NAILS it! Beautiful and dusty and faintly sweet with leather that I actually enjoy for once! Would highly recommend, once I'm finished with this I'll definitely purchase the 10ml size!

Old books smells just like musty old books lol. I mix this with an amber perfume I own. And to me they mix well together. Seller is super cool too. I wanted to purchase a sample of smoke & mirrors and she included it for free. Thank you btw. And for the sample of swamp lily as well. Which smells good too.
