║─BOOK SNIFFERS WANTED

VELLICHOR is a word meaning "the melancholy of used bookstores."  designed to mimic the smell of library stacks and heavy wooden furniture, this candle would be perfect anywhere you want that "reading room" feeling. it starts with a light teak and ozone note, and as the scents open up, fresh leather, cedar wood, incense, and warm resin make their debut.  after cracking the book all the way open, the candle finishes with a deeper aged leather, dark musk, powder, and vanillin--commonly called "old book smell" but is actually the semi-sweet, dry smell of aged book binding adhesive and paper lignin.  if book huffing is your thing, this candle will quickly become your favorite.
