Inspired by the ancient tomes housed in the Bibliotheque de Selestat, this ancient and yet fully intact library from the age of enlightenment provided us with the route into this new fragrance.
This aged perfume radiates the smell of quite study, waxed floors, ancient woodwork, leather bound books and thoughtfulness from the nearly distant past. Layers of scent unfurl and roll gently creating a sensory shift in both time and place.
