Unique Christmas Gifts Ft. Library Fragrances

Monday, December 15, 2014
Unless you have been living under a rock for the past few months you will know that Library Fragrances have taken the beauty world by storm with their...unusual fragrance scents such as dirt, playdoh, snow, pure soap, sunshine, black pepper and more! I have my eye on quite a few more! I was kindly sent two fragrances to review and I won the Fireplace scent in a blog giveaway. 

Firstly, my overall favourite fragrance of the three which is the *The Library Of Fragrance Lavender Cologne Spray (£15, 30ml). I have loved the scent of lavender for years, it just reminds me of summer sunshine and it is so relaxing. The perfume is a gorgeous lavender scent although it is a perfume lavender scent rather than pure natural lavender, in my opinion. However, the scent is still heavenly, relaxing and calming. The scent longevity isn't amazing, it lasts for a maximum of around 5 hours on me but the fragrance is a lot cheaper than most currently on the market. Also it is a cologne which are less concentrated so you would expect then to be lighter and have less staying power. For more information on colognes, click here.

Next up, the *The Library Of Fragrance Dark Chocolate Cologne (£15, 30ml) which as the name would suggest is a gorgeous deep, rich dark chocolate scent! The scent is quite creamy though rather than being bitter. The combination of the dark chocolate and lavender colognes sprayed one after the other is just gorgeous; I wouldn't have ever thought that lavender and dark chocolate would be made into fragrances, never mind them smelling heavenly together but they do! Again the longevity isn't fantastic, it lasts for around 4/5 hours on me but it may last longer on others. 

Last but not least is the fragrance that I won in a blog giveaway a month or two ago which was my first choice of fragrances to try from this brand. It is The Library Of Fragrance Fireplace Cologne (£15, 30ml) which I have to say is one of the more unusual scents available from The Library Of Fragrance. I didn't know what to expect with this fragrance but it is surprisingly gorgeous, in my opinion, my dad disagrees! To me the fragrance smells almost exactly like the Yankee Candle Witches Brew Halloween Tea Lights - musky and mysterious. It is what I imagine Hogwarts to smell like (yes, I am a bit of a harry potter nerd). The Fireplace and Dark Chocolate fragrances make an unusual but interesting combination too. Fireplace is one of the most gorgeous and unique fragrances I have in my collection. 

Overall, I am so impressed with the fragrances, I don't know how they manage to capture a scent and the imagination so perfectly - especially with the Dark Chocolate and Fireplace colognes! Yes, the longevity isn't amazing but the price and unusual scent range is. I would definitely recommend Library Fragrances! They can be purchased from The Library Of Fragrance website and some are available from Boots stores and the Boots website. I also think they would be fantastic, unusual and unexpected christmas gifts that are sure to get everyone talking! I love how interchangeable the fragrances are, the Fireplace and Lavender colognes make a really nice combination I have just discovered, like sweet smoky liquorice!

The Library Of Fragrance have just launched a range of four limited edition christmas fragrances - Eggnog, Cranberry, Christmas Bouquet and Christmas in New York, the latter I need in my life. Stat. These four fragrances are cheaper than the regular range as they are only £9.99 each! Bargain!
Have you tried any colognes from The Library Of Fragrance? What do you think of the unusual scents available?

  6. If I spritzed the Egg Nog scent on in the morning, I would be sniffing my wrist all day long!
