My parent’s home has every wall covered in old wooden libraries with the most precious old books, and to nowadays, this is my most intense and important scent memory.
A mix of papery sharpness with ebony and walnut wooden furniture, and the slightly humid and powdery dustiness of the old books always reminds me of my childhood, my parents’ incredible erudition and their love for culture and education. All my reading experiences are heavily influenced by books individual smell, and when in need of comfort, ink and paper are the first olfactory reassurance I reach out for. Funnily enough, I am constantly on a quest for amplifying my collection of literature-inspired and papery fragrances!
