Happy February everyone!
We hope your 2016 got off to a flying and fragrant start. With thoughts of Spring creeping up on us, Christmas seems like a distant memory.
I Scent You a Day in ‘Perfume under £15: And you Won’t Smell Cheap. Promise’ discussed our extensive range and declared her favourites as Musk #7, Play-Doh, Four Leaf Clover, Orange Blossom, Mahogany, Mango, Grass, Rain, Moonbeam and Salt Air.
I Scent you a Day also took the opportunity to write a beautiful review of our Valentine fragrance; well it was February… Samantha kindly said. “They truly do have a scent for every occasion, except Halloween (although I wore Library of Fragrance Bonfire last year).” Whether you go in for Valentines or not, it’s safe to say that flowers are a fixed association. “It’s bursting with white flowers… Here the jasmine almost goes as far as that, but not quite. The jasmine is rich and loud and extravagant. The honeysuckle is all present and correct, and coupled with pale feminine roses to make this a beautiful choice for Spring.” Just perfect for lovers of floral scents.
Men's Health Online looked at the ‘Best Kept High Street Grooming Secrets’ and included The Library of Fragrance at number 5. "Library of Fragrance colognes are great, interesting alternatives…Plus you can mix them. Oud is excellent, as is Pipe Tobacco, but put the two together and you’ve got something Tom Ford might charge £155 for.” We don’t mind being in the same sentence as Tom Ford!
Forty or Faulty in ‘Revolutionising Perfume: The Library of Fragrance’ gave us a lovely review and wonderfully explained our basic concept; offering everyone the ability to combine our intriguing singular scents in any way you wish to create a completely bespoke perfume to suit you. “…you buy the straightforward ‘classic’ scents’ like Jasmine, Cherry Blossom, Musk#7, Bulgarian Rose…and combine it with ‘odd’ scents like Grass, Tomato, Black Pepper,…thus creating a very unique and personal perfume…Of course, all these scents are also lovely on their own, and you can play with the amount you use of each bottle if you do combine them. You will have fun trying them out and combining them, finding out what fits you best.”
Hope, Freedom, Love gave us ‘Quality Fragrance Without Breaking the Bank – Budget Beauty Week’. “As we're talking about decent products that don't break the bank, I really wanted to dedicate this post to The Library of Fragrance. The Library of Fragrance had a really great last year in 2015, they took the beauty world by storm and everybody was talking about them!” Stephanie says how she loves the whole premise of the business. “They are the scents that are forgotten about and completely under-appreciated.” Peach, Pistachio Ice Cream and Paperback are the three fragrances in Stephanie’s collection – a great combination; we love layering Paperback with Peach for a fruity note.
It was good to hear that Beauty in the Beard has added Rain, Musk#7 and Marshmallow as a “permanent placement on my shelves of perfume and aftershave”. The ever-versatile Musk #7 is the favourite; “I have been out and bought three more of these, since it's so great on my skin.”
Mary-Ellen at The Happy Flat in ‘Wish List No.8: Heaven Scent’ says she loves “light, floral & fresh scents” and goes on to say: “I recently discovered the Library of Fragrance brand. This brand creates notes from scents which are familiar to us in our everyday lives. With a varied catalogue ranging from the traditional Peony & Cherry Blossom, to Baby Powder & Fresh Laundry to the more obscure Espresso & Paperback, these scents do not change over time, which is great. What’s your favourite scent?”
Look forward to seeing you all in March for more updates!
