In the Library Perfume

Can’t get enough of smelling as if you’ve been hanging out in the stacks all day? Try using Christopher Brosius’ In the Library perfume.

In the Library is a warm blend of English Novel*, Russian & Moroccan Leather Bindings, Worn Cloth and a hint of Wood Polish.

*The main note in this scent was copied from one of my favorite novels originally published in 1927. I happened to find a signed first edition in pristine condition many years ago in London. I was more than a little excited because there were only ever a hundred of these in the first place. It had a marvelous warm woody slightly sweet smell and I set about immediately to bottle it.

  1. Fabulous. Coming from a city with a library system that serves a large homeless population (and has oblique signs at the entrance about “strong odors and perfumes”), this takes a more political slant.

  2. I’m fascinated by the idea that a particular novel has a specific scent associated with it — that somehow, the content contributes more to its olfactory characteristics than, say, where it’s been located for the past 83 years.

    Oh, that gives me an idea for a short story.
