For Proust it was the taste of a madelaine, for many of us it is the smell of beloved books that instantly whisks us back to a key time or place. We’ve lost count of the times that customers enter our little shop, inhale deeply and sigh ‘Ahh, the smell of a bookshop!’

Bookshop Magic is available in two sizes, slim novella (if you will) at £5 and family saga at £10 and is heady with the scent of jasmine, rose and chamomile. ‘But, is that what the shop actually smells like?’ you might ask. Well it is now!
