In The Library by CB I Hate Perfume
the scoop This scent is for those who can’t walk past a second-hand bookstore without coming away with at least one additional volume…that special smell of an old book you find buried in book store and you open it and breathe in…wonderful! In The Library is a subtle scent, and it’s not so much the exact recreation of the musty, antique smell of the pages of old book as much as it is the entire book…a hint of worn leather bindings, a whisper of the frayed cloth and the wisp of wood polish from the shelves it sits on and even a bit of sweetness we can’t place. In The Library is comforting and warm with soft, worn edges and no single obvious note…it never screams musty old parchment or crisp new leather, it’s more like a faint memory rolling around in your mind and inspiring you to dream of a long afternoon in an old leather chair curled up with a novel. Its inspiration was an old, signed first-edition book that Christopher found one lucky afternoon in London. In The Library notes English Novel, Russian and Moroccan leather bindings, worn cloth and a hint of wood polish.
