Biblioteca de Babel

Eau de Parfum

by Fueguia 1833

The Scoop
Named after a short story by Jorge Luis Borges, about an enormous library of interlocking rooms, housing a vast collection of books – this fragrance is about the intoxicating scent of an old library where the books have been kept impeccably dry. It is a combination of warm woods, leather bindings, and a hint of ink. The strongest element here is absolutely the wood – warm, reassuring cedar and a South American wood called cabreuva, which complements the cedar. This is deep, burnished and luxurious. The first impression is waxy and surprisingly sweet. There is a rich tuberose-like note, like a flower pressed between the pages, and a dusting of cinnamon. Than we get the soft, worn leather of book bindings, the dry spiciness of old vellum and a trace of tobacco. This is like the warm, comforting embrace of a favorite armchair, in a book-lined room. An instant favorite – we would love to spend a long time in this library.

Biblioteca de Babel is from the Jorge Luis Borges collection, inspired by the work of the Argentine poet, essayist, and short-story writer. His classic works have contributed to philosophical literature and the genre of magic realism.

Related to Skarb (Humiecki and Graaf) which I have reviewed elsewhere, but milder and with a coconut nuance.
