The Scent

Warm and intimate, this grounding fragrance captures the romance of an old-world antique bookstore. Earthy aromas of sandalwood and saffron combine with an ephemeral whisper of powdery rose and patchouli to evoke the scents of aging paper, while smoky birch resin layers on notes of leather and dried ink.  

The Notes

  • Top: Ceylon Pepper, Saffron, Lemon Peel 
  • Middle: Rose, Patchouli, Sandalwood 
  • Base: Vanilla, Birch Resin 


The Memory

“Wandering the historic cobblestone streets of Lisbon, I chanced upon an antique bookstore with towering stacks of centuries-old books, many encased in distressed and worn leather bindings. As I perused the shelves, the pervasive smell around me was hypnotic: a humid mustiness emanating from the aging and fragile paper, the powdery scent of time, and a resinous odor indicative of the old ink long-dried on the books' yellowing pages. These weren’t world-famous works of literature or even books that would make it into museums, but they were precious nonetheless both to the hands that turned the pages before me, and the generations of book lovers to come.”

Approximate Burn Time:

8 oz.: 50 hours

    Gifted by Aerangis. The candle came beautifully packaged. It smells so warm and cozy. It has notes of saffron, lemon peel, patchouli and vanilla. The ceramic jar is simple, yet so sophisticated and matches any interior. I will deffinitily reuse the jar once the candle is burned.

    Beautiful!

    What a gorgeous candle! It comes with tips on how to get the most out of your candle and the little candle cover is made with seeds inside that you can plant. It has a great throw and fills my house with its lovely scent. I would call this candle sophisticated and you can really smell the notes of sandalwood, vanilla, and patchouli. When you get this candle you are really getting an experience along with it and I will be buying more from Aerangis!

    Perfect cozy candle

    This is the most luxurious purchase experience! The presentation, detail, and attention poured into the candle is so evident! I feel like I’m in a cozy bookstore when I light this candle. It’s warm and woodsy. I love having this lit during my bath time.
