OLD BOOKS Perfume Oil (Available in Four Sizes)

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 only pure, organic essential 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.

I like it, but it really doesn’t all that much like books to me. Plus the note of leather is really strong when first applied and it’s not the most appealing scent. However, I’m blind as a bat and have an impeccable sense of smell so it might just be me haha

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!
