I bought several scents but only one for myself: Oxford Library. On first sniff of the unlit candle, I was a bit apprehensive. The leather smell seemed strange. But once lit and the combination of scents had time to diffuse throughout the room, it was lovely! It was perfect for a relaxing day of reading.
I have been looking for a very specific scent in a candle, a cross of the smell of a new book, old carpets, and wood. My library in town smells of this but unfortunately, that is not what I got with this candle. Instead I got a candle that smells like a clean and pristine building laid with white tile floors and well stocked shelves. I'd describe the scent as very soft, not in the sense that I can't smell it but more of the fact that its not offensive to the nose. Disassociating it from it's title, I would pair this scent with that of a bathroom in a suburban home that is on the market to be sold. It does smell very clean, professional, and pleasant, but too friendly to be used in a stockbroker's office. Overall, I'm upset that I haven't found the scent I'm looking for yet, but am pleasantly surprised to find a scent I didn't know I wanted yet. Definitely going to go in my "buy again" list and I am very tempted to carry this candle with me to help my concentration on my studies outside of home.
I love this fragrance so, so much. The sandalwood gives it a spicy, warm feeling that is perfectly complemented by the leather and balances out the woodsy oak notes. It's not overwhelming but definitely present, not something that you get smacked in the face with when you enter a room, but something that gives the whole atmosphere character. One of my favorites that I come back to, again and again.
I know this is the Oxford candle and not rainy day reads, but this smells like rain to me. I love it so much and I am already half way through my second candle. I feel like I will always have this one stocked in my house.
No joke my favorite candle! Already on my second one & put a lot of family & friends on it too lol. Perfect vibes.
