Bibliosmia Box offers curated boxes of books paired with artisan fragrance products.
Scent is very powerful. It can take us to a memory of a time long passed. It can evoke a person, a meal, or an entire season. Scent can root us deeply in a moment, forever tying fragrance to experience. Our boxes create that connection. Using the paired fragrance products makes your reading experience unforgettable.
First, a book is chosen based on its atmospheric and immersive qualities. Books with a strong sense of place, lively characters, and vivid prose are great options for our boxes. Then, fragrances are chosen to evoke and complement the book's theme, setting, or characters.
Each box contains a book, 2-3 fragrance products (any combination of: candle, perfume oil, room spray, etc.), an info card with scent notes, and a handmade bookmark. Some boxes come with promotional material from the featured brands, if they have chosen to include it.
Our fragrance products are chosen from a number of very talented makers. These artisans create their scents by hand. Some products are created specifically with the chosen book in mind and are included whenever possible to carry out the maker's inspiration. The products in our boxes are sourced from these small businesses as we hope to promote and showcase their talents.
The bookmark included with each box is handmade of pressed cotton and recycled fibers. This makes the bookmark more conducive to absorbing scent. Applying the liquid fragrance product of your choice to the bookmark will keep the scent close to the book, forever tying it to the experience of the story. This option is also great for those who choose not to wear the scent directly on their skin.
No, we are not a subscription box. You can purchase whenever you like and there is no sign-up. We are starting off with limited releases of each box and plan to keep a running stock of popular boxes in the future.
We aim to support small business owners and source local as often as possible. We believe the transaction between buyer and seller should nurture a community of like minded people.
Book-selling isn't the most sustainable endeavor, which is why it's crucial to us to utilize low impact materials in every other aspect of the business. We source books from overstock, choose vegan, and use recyclable materials every chance we get.
As we grow, it is our commitment to showcase a wide range of voices and shop owners. We support LGBTQ and minorities.
