I didn't really know what to expect with this scent, but I guess I thought it might smell a bit more woodsy, but instead, it smells a bit more clean; which is funny considering it's called "Old Books". So, I suppose I expected a bit more aged vanilla and paper/woodsy notes.
The scent is also very mild and clean smelling, which was enjoyed by my mother, but less-so by me.
If you like a more mild and clean smell, then you will love this!
If you are a fan of the stronger, woodsier smells like Oxford Library, then this might be too mild for you.
