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.

p.s have you read my review of the newest fragrance from Hugo Boss? Find out more here.

  3. This one sounds interesting, definitely intrigued! I've got the gin & tonic one and I love it. Play doh next I think!

  4. Oh my goodness this sounds lovely! I've never thought of a perfume smelling of something like books, but I love the smell of books so may have to try this. Thanks for sharing xx
