Chill Out Oxford, A Place of More That Just Study

By Jo Phillips

Oxford is a city in Oxfordshire, England, and is home to the University of Oxford, the oldest university in the English-speaking world; But it has more to it than education, find out more here in Chill Out Oxford, A place of More That Just Study

During the early Norman period, and in the late 12th century it became home to the fledgling University of Oxford. The university rose to dominate the town.

The city began to grow industrially during the 19th century, and had an industrial boom in the early 20th century, with major printing and car-manufacturing industries. These declined, along with other British heavy industry, in the 1970s and 1980s, leaving behind a city that had developed far beyond the university town of the past.

In more modern times the town has become known for car production, publishing, science, and technology as well as beer production. From education to motoring via drinking one thing Oxford is newly known for is scented home production.

A woody floral that will put you in a warm sunny mood. Base notes of Guaiacwood, Musk and Moss, balance the sweet florals in this aroma.
