Does the smell of Leather remind you of books or that “new car” smell? It reminds us of books and we LOVE to read! We admit this gave us an excuse to promote a sale on our wonderful leather scented products, which is one of our most popular fragrances with men. National Book Lovers Day on August 9th also gave us an excuse to talk about how much we just love to read and how important it is for lifelong learning and adventure. Even if you can’t travel, taking an adventure through reading can still be amazing. We love a good autobiography or science fiction book, and we know there are occasions that just call for a romance or romantic adventure novel! One of our owners’ all-time favorite book series is the Outlander novels by Diana Gabaldon. The first book, aptly called Outlander, was originally published in 1991 with the subsequent books 2 through 8 following after that. One of our owners has read all 8 of the main Outlander books and she is reading them again….they are that good! Of course there is the TV series Outlander now on STARZ in the U.S., which is must see TV in her household…LOL!! One of our owners even went last month to Scotland to tour some of the places from the Outlander TV show and in real life that she has always wanted to see. Having another job as an oilfield consultant allows her to travel frequently, so a side trip to Scotland from London was a “no-brainer” for her. The bonus for you readers is to see one of her favorite photos. The photo featured above is of Inverlochy Castle, one of Scotland’s famous castles, built around 1270. It's not a setting for Outlander but is breathtaking nonetheless. She says Scotland is incredibly beautiful and the people are super nice. You are guaranteed to have an amazing time if you enjoy the outdoors and reading about and seeing historic places.
