This fragrance opens with a citrusy rose opening which blooms into a resonant wave of spices, honey, tobacco, resins, agarwood & genuine Mysore Sandalwood.
As it dries down, the perfume transforms into a vintage book from an historic, musty library. Yes, we all know that brittle & dusty smell of the card catalog. You are left with an insanely long drydown of old musty books, murky ink, and leather bindings which crunch when opened...releasing a flurry of crumbled glue chips on the freshly polished hardwood table. Close your eyes & enjoy....

DID YOU KNOW?
Natural Perfume may appear slightly cloudy at times or particulate may be visible floating in the bottle. This is normal for perfumes containing high quantities of natural resins & waxes. I filter my natural perfumes multiple times before bottling, but due to changes in temperature & aging, a small amount of sediment may appear over time. This does not negatively affect the performance of the perfume. In fact, these natural waxes & resins are highly scented aromatic materials that will melt into your skin when applied, giving the perfume an enhanced richness & longevity. Enjoy!

First full bottle that I have purchased. I LOVE this perfume., as does my husband. Super easy to wear but not bland by any means. Just gorgeous. Next purchase is Chypre no. 1 then Sacred smoke. Got three samples with full bottle. Cupid’s bow... loved after first 5 minutes. Initial blast of chocolate is not for me but after that it’s lovely. Hekate is too strong for me but very nice none the less. I use sample to scent our house! After the rain reminded my husband of his childhood in anew Zealand and a particular kind of grass. Amazed that a perfume can conjure such a specific memory. This is an astonishing brand, well worth exploring.
I know there is actually a market out there for people who love the smell of an old library! Old leather-bound books, well-worn pages, polished wooded tables and chairs...Vintage Novel brings this feeling to life on your skin! But, if that sounds odd to some - I assure you, this one is a pleasure to wear with a large note in it actually being Tea Rose...Well done!
