In the Stacks
In the Stacks
Scent Profile: Top Notes of Leather, Teakwood and Amyris settle into middle notes of Smoke, Honey and Musk, that give way to self-effacing base notes of Sandalwood, Oud, Patchouli, and Tobacco.
The Inspiration: I love books, libraries, book stores, discount book stores, gift shops that sell books, you get the idea. In college I would sometimes need to locate an old reference book out of the main circulation, in a place everyone called “the stacks”. It was one of those hybrid buildings, new and bright and easy to navigate in the main circulation area on the bottom 2 floors, and an old section where the “out of circulation” stacks were. It was a rabbit warren of a building with 18 narrow floors, infrequent alcoves with a small desk and chair, poorly lit, and just brimming with musty smelling books. Who writes all these books? And are they sad to know their books are in the “out of circulation” section of the library? Maybe. Finding the intended book involved a bit of map and compass skills, it was always an adventure.
This library scent is a fanciful notion of a library. One that might have existed as part of an expansive Great Camp along the shores of an Adirondack lake, with honey-toned oak paneling, leather divans and club chairs clustered around small tables and soft lamp light. There would be knitted Afghans to snuggle into, and a cozy fire burning in the oversized fireplace. Sounds nice, doesn’t it?
This candle is made with coconut apricot blended wax.
