Make Your House Smell Like Your Favorite Dead Author

28 Aug

(But before they were dead, not like rotting flesh.)

Friends, today is one of those days where I’d rather be in bed reading by candlelight than doing just about anything else in the universe.

I bring you The Library Collection by Paddywax.

Today feels like an Edgar Allen Poe sort of day… but my usual literary inspired scent would probably be Emily Dickinson: Lavendar, Cassis (the smell of orchards — unbereft) or Tolstoy: Black Plum, Persimmon, and Oakmoss.

How lovely to have the whole collection in my own personal candle library. Oh, to have a candle library at all. I hope they create new scents, I’d love a bathtub gin scented Fitzgerald… mmmmmmmmm… I digress.

Pray tell, what scent might you be, dear Amazons? What would other revered authors smell like? These are the important questions.

        Molly! I SAW that. I don’t know that I want to smell like paper, but… soak your cotton kindle cover in it, maybe???

        OMG PENNY THAT’S THE BEST IDEA. That’s the biggest downside to the kindle! No book smell! You rocked my world, you know you did.
