In the Library – a fragrance for bookworms

In-the-library

  I love the smell of libraries. I'm not totally sure why I do – after all, libraries tend to smell old and kinda musty – but I do know I'm not totally alone in this love. Take the founders of "In the Library", for instance: they love nothing more than the smell of a well-loved book, and that's exactly what this fragrance is inspired by. It apparently replicates the scent of "Russian & Moroccan leather bindings, worn cloth and a hint of wood polish", and I have to admit to being fascinated by it, although not totally convinced I'd want to wear it: I love the smell of the library, but do I want to smell like a library myself? The jury's still out. If you think this is for you, though, you can order it here.
