The Literary Shed

The Literary Shed celebrates many of the things we love best – words, in any form, the arts, pop culture, food, travel, the sea and the occasional Literary Cat.

Read, see and hear various mixed media on literature and pop culture. Catch-up on articles on the arts and Q&As/interviews with leading authors. And if you’d like The Library Shed to help shape your words to your needs, they offer a writing and editing service, too.

If that’s not enough, we’ve launched a library of scents, pure essential oil-based room fragrances that capture the essence of classic books. A percentage of each sale goes to charity.

Library of Scents

The Literary Shed’s Library of Scents are room fragrances based on beloved books. Capturing the essence of real and imagined worlds, here we have the scent of tea that Alice desperately wants to drink with the March Hare; the heady evening fragrance of Thornfield’s gardens and orchards, where Jane Eyre walks during the ’sweetest hour’; and, finally, exotic Kerala, as captured in The God of Small Things, where ‘smells, like music, hold memories’.

All room fragrances are mixed by hand using pure essential oils: 100ml for £15:

Tea with Alice
Alice in Wonderland’s encounter with the March Hare
Bergamot, lime and cypress

The Sweetest Hour
Jane Eyre’s walks at Thornfield
Rose geranium, jasmine and cedarwood

The Holding of Memories
Kerala in The God of Small Things
Vetiver, lemongrass and black pepper
