Who are ‘The Library of Fragrance’?
The Library of Fragrance has created a huge array of fragrances that you can wear alone or layered together to create your own cocktail of scents.
Their collection ranges from scents such as; Peach, Gin and Tonic, and Thunderstorm, to Play-doh, Rain, Paperback, Fresh laundry and Sex on The Beach. I could take all day trying to decide on only one.
Whether you’re looking at their colognes on their website www.LibraryofFragrance.com or at Boots. They give great and detailed descriptions of the notes in their fragrances. Making it easier to make a decision when you’re online shopping or thinking of trying one in store.
All of their ingredients are 100% Vegan and not tested on animals. Even scents such as Leather or Honey. They have a detailed FAQ page on their website if you have more questions and are really friendly and helpful people.
The packaging is solid and sturdy glass or plastic in the smaller bottles. I have been carrying the glass spray bottles in my bags for a long time and never had a problem. No leaks or breakage. They spray a fine and even mist making it easy to use them and get the best application. Whether you’re layering them or not.
These luxurious fragrances wear well throughout the day. As a cologne, they tend to last between 2 and 6 hours on the skin. Which is great if you want to change up your fragrance from day to night.
It’s been a lot of fun trying out different scents and mixing them together. I’ve got my eye on a few others for myself and for gifts.
I was first sent Moonbeam by The Library of Fragrance in December 2014 and had no idea what to expect from this fragrance. But it soon became a favourite in my bag. I dedicated a post to this fragrance here if you’d like to read it. This is one of my Autumn/Winter favourites and I’ve a tiny amount left. So I’ll have to get it again or try something new when the Summer is over.
I bought this from Boots when I had tried the other fragrances in this post and seen the huge array of choice from the brand.
It smells just like a fresh Peach. I love this for this time of year. It’s a perfect scent for Spring and Summer. Fresh and fruity without smelling sweet. It’s always in my bag so that I can reapply it throughout the day.
I like mixing this with a Cherry Blossom fragrance for a floral and fruity combination. It’s great with Moonbeam as well as it adds a hint of vanilla. Thunderstorm with Peach makes the Peach fresher. As if you’re smelling it whilst breathing the clear mountain air.
These smaller spray bottles are great for your bag or for the clumsy. Like myself. However, I’d personally buy the bigger bottles as they are made of glass and better for the environment. Makes me think of fresh mountain air or a Summer evening after a thunderstorm. Great to mix with Moonbeam and baby powder.
One of their most popular colognes. Yes, it smells just like baby powder. I like this as a relaxing scent. It also softens the notes of the other fragrances that I’ve mentioned. I love that you can create your own fragrance by combining these together or with other fragrances in your collection.
The 30ml bottles are £15 each. But if you want more than one or to get another as a gift for someone they tend to have a 2 for £25 deal on.
