The Library Of Fragrance in Paperback | Review

There are some scents which just evoke happiness for me. Sunshine, play doh, pizza, liquorice, books.. the list goes on. Thanks to innovative fragrance brand, The Library of Fragrance I can now wear these odd scents on a daily basis.

The brands mission is to create products that allow the individual to select fragrance based on their own preferences - rather than a designer, celebrity or a perfumers' idea of what those preferences should be. There are over 300 different fragrances available on their website here. I urge you to have a browse of all the interesting scents they have to offer.

I love reading books. I love the feel of books. I love the scent of books. It was only natural that my first experience of The Library of Fragrance would be 'Paperback', a scent inspired by second hand bookshops and aged novels. Don't worry, this won't make sure smell like a dusty old book - it's a little more complex than that. A creamy concoction of milky-vanilla and woody facets make up this cologne. A subtle hint of must and dust add to the experience re-creating that paperback scent so many of us love. The fragrance lasts surprisingly well, I sprayed this on before work around 8.00am and I could still smell it on my skin in the evening.

I'd highly recommend trying out a fragrance from the brand. The quality is superb and they have a vast range of unusual products so it's guaranteed there is something for everyone. I can see myself buying these as gifts for fussy-fragrance family members!

The Library of Fragrance in Paperback* £15 for 30ml available online here. You can also purchase selected fragrances from Boots.
