Late last year lots of blog posts were popping up introducing The Library of Fragrance, the New York based perfumery that had just launched in the UK. The Library of Fragrance have based their perfumes on a unique concept, every scent has been created to smell like something real or familiar from everyday life, from Baby Powder to Sunshine, there are a total of 101 scents available to purchase in the UK which is such an incredibly extensive range! When I first heard of the brand I was really intrigued and when I realised that my local Boots stocked quite a few fragrances from the range I was over the moon.
For Christmas the mister gifted me Cherry Blossom, and although I had been wearing it on occasion I was really waiting until Spring to use it more regularly and now I can’t get enough of it! Cherry Blossom is described as a “soft, sheer floral with a hint of cherry”. I think Cherry Blossom is a distinctively delicate floral with a hint of musk that makes it exceedingly wearable.
More recently Daisy* was gifted to me. I’m a huge fan of daisies, with one of my favourite pieces of jewellery being this Daisy London necklace so I’m so happy to have this fragrance in my life. Daisy* is described as a “light, bright floral tinged with green that smells just like the living flower in the wild”. I agree that Daisy* is a fresh, sweet fragrance that is perfect for this time of year.
I have been enjoying wearing Daisy* during the day and Cherry Blossom as more of an evening or special occasion scent as it is slightly stronger. To add to this brand’s uniqueness, The Library of Fragrance scents can also be layered to build a personalised fragrance which adds to the charm! More recently I have enjoyed wearing both Daisy* and Cherry Blossom together as they seem to really compliment each other. I think you could have great fun pairing different scents to create a bespoke fragrance.
I have found these The Library of Fragrance perfumes to be really long lasting which is an added bonus. They are 30ml in size and cost £15 each, but they’re also regularly on offer in Boots for 2 scents at £25 which I think is great value. I’m also a huge fan of the packaging, simple, rectangular glass bottles with clear labels and a silver lid. I just love everything about The Library of Fragrance and I can’t wait to pick up some more scents to experiment further.
