Library is our January 2021 Limited Edition Seasonal Scent for Keap subscribers.
“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.
