Details

Put on your smoking jacket and reading glasses, grab a leather-bound novel from the mahogany shelves, and flip through the dusty pages. This distinctive fragrance recalls the atmosphere of an historic library of yesteryear, beginning with a teakwood top note that gives way to a heart of cedar and leather. Earthy sandalwood, dark musk, and patchouli wrap up this woody scent.

Library inspires an array of possibilities for any home fragrance line, like book-themed candle collections and other gifts. This fragrance oil isn’t limited to the literary--create distinguished room sprays and reed diffusers that are intriguingly upscale and perfectly on-trend.

This fragrance oil is infused with natural essential oils including cedarwood, patchouli, vetiver, elemi, and cade.

We did not experience any acceleration or separation and the batter stayed very fluid for a long time. After 24 hours, there was no discoloration and the scent was mild with a nice woodsy character. There did not appear to be any sign of going into a gel phase. After 30 days the interior of the bars are slightly pink, but overall there is no significant discoloration. The scent is still mild but quite pleasant. This would be a great fragrance to try an intricate swirl design or any advanced technique that requires a light trace for an extended period of time.

Decent

Yes it smells exactly like antique sandalwood, it has a great cold throw but unfortunately im not getting a hot throw at all from this fragrance!

Co-owner, Linked Keys

This scent is identical to Antique Sandalwood. My daughter and I conducted an experiment where we covered the names on the bottles and did a smell test and we could NOT make the distinction between the two. It’s a good thing I’m a huge fan of Antique Sandalwood.

Love Library!!

Absolutely adore this fragrance! I’m an avid reader and miss actual books (vs tablet reading), the smell of their pages.... or the smell of walking into a bookstore and getting that cozy, about-to-find-a-great-book feel... this fragrance certainly evokes all of that. Perfection!

Antique Sandalwood

First let me start by saying that I love Candlescience and almost every single fragrance from them. I'm a book lover so I was excited when I found about this oil. To my disappointment, it smells almost identical to CS Antique Sandalwood but with a hint of cologne. Its musty and old. But not old books.

A Good rendition of Library Books

A few companies have attempted a library books fragrance; this is a really good one, in my opinion. It smells very much like the pages of a genuine old, musty library book, and maybe a hint of something cologne-like (as is a CS custom to sneak in that little cologne element to everything). This one, unlike others I've experienced in the past, is a stronger version. If you like Antique Sandalwood, you would most likely enjoy this fragrance. Conversely, if you detest Antique Sandalwood, you may not appreciate this fragrance.
