Literary Scents

We are constantly bombarded with sensory information

Which ones to ignore or give our attention

Which music do we amplify

Which sounds to muffle

Sounds of birds or sirens

Smell of roses or foul street garbage

Which spaces lift your spirits up

Which books you can't give up?

Scents just like books and music

Transport you to places

Take you on adventures

Bring back memories

But what happens when

your scent evokes stories

by great literary writers?

Which would you choose

to captivate your senses?

Perfume and scents inspired by books

“I am no bird; and no net ensnares me: I am a free human being with an independent will.”

-- Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

"Jane Eyre" is a romantic union of the bashful rose, elegant bergamot and the subtle clary sage. This is a modest, sophisticated and tasteful fragrance, named after the famous novel "Jane Eyre" written by Charlotte Bronte in 1847, and its protagonist, admired by generations of readers for her dignity and intelligence. "Jane Eyre"'s light aroma evokes enjoying a steamy cup of Earl Grey tea laced with rose water."

“Nowadays people know the price of everything and the value of nothing.”

Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray

“While there is life there is hope. I beg to assert...that as long as a man's heart beats, as long as a man's flesh quivers, I do not allow that a being gifted with thought and will can allow himself to despair.”

"Inspired by Jules Vernes, at the beginning of the century great discoveries. The infinity of the ocean has transported him to very distant lands, inspiring him with extraordinary adventure novels. Inspired by the father of literary science fiction, this eau de parfum breathes its aromatic scents reminiscent of the Hesperides, like a sea breeze on a wild moor".

"At age 65, when famed explorer and author Philip Sava was given less than a year to live, he set off from his home in Madagascar for parts unknown. Leaving all his belongings behind, he set off on foot, hopped a freighter across the Indian Ocean, and wandered into the Bangladeshi wilderness. His journey, which lasted over a decade, took him through Nepal and Tibet where his exploration turned spiritual and into rural China where months of solitude resulted in some of the most confessional observations ever committed to paper. This is the story of a man grappling with the meaning of life as he grasps at life’s last vestiges."

"So that man thought that the important thing was to have, and did not know that the important thing is to be"- Oscar Wilde

404 A room wiht a View by CB I hate Perfume

"This 1908 novel by E.M. Forster combines romance and splendid descriptions of Italy (especially Florence and Rome). The room with a view is a hotel room that overlooks the River Arno, and the perfume of the same name will whisk you away to the Italian countryside."

Go into the rabbit hole and let these scents inspired by Alice in Wonderland take you on an adventure

one of life's greatest pleasures in a bottle
