Aroma palette is woodsy and earthy. Highlights include old paper pages, aged suede, leather, subtle woods, and lignin.

This beautifully atmospheric fragrance will transport you to the nostalgic comforts of an antiquarian library. An antique book in a bottle, this blend opens with the calming aroma of old paper pages, gradually revealing a melange of subtle woods, leather, and suede on the drydown. It settles into a cozy subtle old paper and leather, perfect for curling up with a cup of tea and transporting yourself to reveries of an antique library.

What Are Perfume Oils?

Please note that these are not fragrance oils; they are perfume oils (artisan perfumes presented in oil format). They are meant to be worn on the skin and are not suitable for wax warmers, oil burners, or aroma diffusers. The only difference between our perfume oils and Eau de Parfums is the oil format. Many people prefer perfume oils because they wear close to the skin and unfold a bit more non-linearly than Eau de Parfums. For a more in-depth look at perfume oils, please peruse our knowledge base articles.

About Perfume Oils

Perfume oils do not unfold their complexity when experienced directly from the bottle. If you attempt to gauge the aroma of a perfume oil by smelling it from the bottle, your experience will not be accurate whatsoever. Always test perfumes on your body for the full experience.

Apply first to your pulse points (the inner wrists, the base of the throat, behind ear lobes, and the inner elbows) where it will warm with your body heat to unfold the fragrance.

Perfume oil, unlike alcohol-based perfumes, wears close to the skin. It warms on your body, adapts to your body chemistry, and creates a halo of scent on the body. As it fades, perfume oil can be applied throughout the day as a personal aromatic ritual.

Not recommended for those who are pregnant or nursing, children, or pets. Always patch test for potential allergies before applying liberally.

Leathery Goodness

I have a pretty extensive collection of perfumes that use leather, but this is my favorite by far. On me it's leather forward with undertones of incense.

Spot On

I have no idea how this fragrance manages to channel that sun drenched corner of your favorite indie bookstore, but it does. I could bathe in this stuff. Seriously. It makes me so happy.

My boyfriend loves this

I bought this at the request of my boyfriend. This has become his new every day staple cologne. It's very woodsy and earthy; it smells like woods, dried book pages, and leather in the best of ways. This is such an enchanting blend, I will be buying more when he runs out.
