Perfect for creating a luxurious moment of thoughtful calm in any room of the house.
Library is our limited-edition January 2020 Seasonal Scent for the Keap subscription.
“I was fortunate to study at Trinity College in Cambridge. The dining hall was built by Henry VIII, and a large portrait of him has hung at the end of the room for 450 years. Entering the famous college library—where some books were centuries old too—was a humbling experience. I'll never forget the smell of those books, nor the absolute stillness in the air.”
Guaiac Wood: A protected species with special permits for perfumery, this exotic wood imparts an almost holy smokiness with just enough creaminess..
Elemi Oil: Similar to frankincense, an oil with an incense-like pepperiness, uplifted by a little lemon.
Cedar Wood: Woody, dry, reminiscent of a pencil tip, fresh wood shavings.
Beeswax: A reassuringly familiar scent, bringing to mind freshly polished wood as well as wild honey and flowers.
Angelica Seeds: Known as the 'Holy Ghost', Angelica yields an oil from its seeds known for its herbaceous, tangy and earthy aspects..
Cedar Leaves: Woody and mysterious, adds one of the special je-ne-sais-quoi’s of libraries.
