Sometimes, even around Christmas time, when heavier, richer and intense scents are more the order of the day, you just need a little hit of tropical escapism. I Scent you a Day gave an absolutely glowing review of our Orange Blossom and Mango colognes. “…Library of Fragrance Orange Blossom is one of the best Orange Blossom soliflores I have tried. It’s not the highest priced orange blossom, nor does it come in fancy packaging, but for a sweet, floral, milky hit with a hint of subtle oranges in the background, this is hard to beat. It’s fabulous on its own, but when I layered Library of Fragrance Mango over the top, I had something really addictive going on…Both Orange Blossom and Mango are fabulous alone and true to the descriptions on their labels, but together, they really take off. My recommendation? Get both.”
Meanwhile, we hope that you noticed that I Scent you a Day also ran a giveaway for our Bonfire and Pipe Tobacco colognes; two perfect choices for the transition from autumn to winter... did you win? Let us know what you think, if so!
Elsewhere, The Skin Chronicles looked at ‘Beauty Gifts for fragrance fanatics’ and led the piece with an image of Dirt, Gin & Tonic, Baby Powder and Thunderstorm. The favourites selected were Amber, Gingerbread, Oud, Almond, Fresh Coconut and Pistachio!
Amy at Salt & Chic discussed the beauty of giving fragrance for Christmas – something we wholeheartedly support of course – and “…chose to go for Fireplace, Moonbeam and Thunderstorm, three unconventional but not too crazy fragrances that I couldn't wait to try!” Of the three, Moonbeam was her favourite, but she says “The two unconventional scents really surprised me with how nice they smelled so I think next time I'm getting some perfumes from The Library of Fragrance, I'll branch out a bit and try something even more adventurous! She says of Fireplace, “When I opened the bottle, I was so surprised as it really did smell just like a fireplace but when I sprayed it, the scent is rather spicy and really festive. It's such a beautiful scent, especially for this time of year.”
Over at the I Am Fabulicious blog, our Egg Nog fragrance’s festive reign continued as Sarah confirmed she is a “…a MASSIVE Library of Fragrance fan ever since discovering them last year.” Of Egg Nog she says; “Its undeniable festive scent come from a sprinkling of cinnamon and nutmeg, while a dash of bourbon gives it a real punch! Vanilla, cream and sugar round the fragrance off and together create a sweet, warm, rich, creamy scent.” In a word, delicious.
Face Up Beauty included Gin & Tonic in ‘3 Fabulously Quirky Scents to Get This Christmas’ describing it as a “…light crisp unisex fragrance with a dash of juniper that smells like… you got it.” It was also nice to hear that; “These singular scents from The Library of Fragrance are such a clever idea.”
One of our favourite fragrance bloggers, Sarah at Odiferess, wrote a brill piece about ‘Christmas themes from The Library of Fragrance: Mistletoe, Frankincense and Christmas in New York’. For Sarah the one that came out top was Mistletoe. She said it“…hints at regeneration, sticky new buds and the joy of a late winter sun warming your face as you take your first long country walk of the new year. It’s immensely joyful. An antidote to darkness.”
Meanwhile, Luxury Lifestyle magazine looked at ‘festive fragrances to get you in the mood’ and selected four Christmas-inspired creations from our range: Egg Nog, Christmas in New York, Gingerbread and Mistletoe. Each of these received a fabulous review that made us want to start spritzing them right now! For example, Egg Nog “…is a sweet and comforting scent that is sure to warm your cockles, and is best enjoyed sipping a cup of the real thing beside a crackling open fire and Gingerbread is “Homely and comforting…a festive season must in our book – and beyond.” We have every element of Christmas covered, whatever your taste in fragrance.
And finally... You may have heard that the scent of grapefruit has been shown to make people be perceived as up to six years younger than their actual age and The Sun Online recommended livening yourself up post-hangover with our Pink Grapefruit cologne, described as “fabulously refreshing”. The same article appeared at The Sun Online ROI.
