The Strange South
The Strange South Je Veux Mon Livre features notes of tea leaves, sage pressed between the ancient pages of a leather-bound grimoire. It is an eau de parfum, edp.
The Strange South's perfumes are blended by hand and bottled in small batches. They are alcohol, paraben, phthalate, and cruelty-free; the only testing being on willing human subjects.
The Indie Mood - "I adore this scent. It’s a darker fragrance and the individual notes all have so much character individually yet work together to create something really unique. There is a smokiness to this, like a candle that was just snuffed out. I love any book and paper fragrances, but this one is definitely a favorite. The sage isn’t overpowering but definitely adds an earthiness to this that sets it apart from other ‘library’ themed fragrances. Consequently, I can almost hear the leather binding creaking as the book is opened.
Indie Scent Library - "My very, very favorite “book scent”, and I’ve tried lots. I can pick out the tea and leather notes of I really try, but mostly it blends together into a lovely, light, old book smell."
Reddit - "I adore The Strange South's Je Veux Mon Livre: "Tea leaves and sage pressed between the ancient pages of a leather-bound grimoire". I know the first note is tea-- but all I smell is gorgeous old books. I huff my wrists all day when I wear this"
