To be honest, the Wakefield offices are pretty damn quirky.
Firstly, there’s the decor, which a recent visitor described as ‘Mad Men-esque’. So true! I’m not quite Peggy Olson, and if you try to smoke inside we’ll bludgeon you with books, but the vibe in here is Mad Men to a tee.
Secondly, there’s the layout, which can be a little confusing to any first-time visitor – especially if you stumble into the warehouse and get lost amongst the stacks!
Finally – and this has always struck me – there’s the faintest perfume in the office. Eau de Wakefield, if you will. It is the smell of freshly brewed books. Faint, sweet, clean: a fresh from the printers smell.
So, of course, that’s the first thing I thought of when Charlotte showed me the ‘Old Books’ scented candle on Lost at E Minor. How cool! My only question is – are any old books harmed in the making of the candle?
Or you could just buy a few WP titles and get the real deal!
