Biblioteca de Babel Eau de Parfum

Biblioteca de Babel Eau de Parfum is a fragrance by Fueguia 1833. The notes of this fragrance are Cedar, cabreuva (woody note), cinnamon


Cedar shelves, heavy leather bookbindings, vellum leaves, the smell of ink. The complex environment of an old book is brought to life. Named after a short story by Jorge Luis Borges, about an enormous library of interlocking rooms, housing a vast collection of books ? this fragrance is about the intoxicating scent of an old library where the books have been kept impeccably dry. It is a combination of warm woods, leather bindings, and a hint of ink. The strongest element here is absolutely the wood ? warm, reassuring cedar and a South American wood called cabreuva, which complements the cedar. This is deep, burnished and luxurious. The first impression is waxy and surprisingly sweet. There is a rich tuberose-like note, like a flower pressed between the pages, and a dusting of cinnamon. Than we get the soft, worn leather of book bindings, the dry spiciness of old vellum and a trace of tobacco. This is like the warm, comforting embrace of a favorite armchair, in a book-lined room. An instant favorite ? we would love to spend a long time in this library.
