Literati & Light

Purveyors of Scented Stories

Literati & Light was founded by husband and wife team Philip and Justine in 2016.

Our company was born of a simple desire to capture and share the fragrances of the greatest stories ever told.

It all began when Justine was researching her PhD in modernist literature. Being an experienced candle-maker and lover of all things fragrant, she quickly noticed how frequently detailed descriptions of perfumes and aromas appeared in literary works.

Soon an obsession took hold and she began riffling through her favourite books to discover what the stories might smell like if she could lift their covers and step inside.

Today we capture those fragrances in the hand crafted, environmentally conscious products that make up our scented library.

Visit our library to take a fragrant journey from the silk roads of ancient Persia to the flapper-filled parties of the roaring twenties. Join Holmes at 221B Baker Street, take a trip to Alice's Wonderland, or wander the rain-speckled moors of Wuthering Heights.
