In September of last year The Library Of Fragranced launched a selection of favourites of their linear, singular scents into Boots stores around the UK.
I believe the fragrances were once sold in the UK under the Demeter Fragrance Library name, which is the brand name they're sold under in the US. I don't remember the first time around but I'm glad they're back and more readily available on the high street as buying fragrance online is always a little risky.
The brand has more than 300 fragrances, 101 which are available on the UK website. The favourites Boots stock are as follows - Amber, Baby Powder, Cherry Blossom, Clean Skin, Daisy, Fireplace, Four Leaf Clover, Fresh Coconut, Fresh Ginger, Fresh Laundry, Gin & Tonic, Gingerbread, Grass, Four Leaf Clover, Jasmine, Mango, Marshmallow, Moonbeam, Musk #7, Orange Blossom, Patchouli, Peach, Pure Soap, Rain, Sex On The Beach, Sunshine, Thunderstorm and Vanilla Ice Cream.
They also have some rather ... interesting ones on the website such as Fresh Hay, Holy Water, Pizza and Wet Garden. I suppose there really is something for everyone.
Today I'm talking about a slightly more classic fragrance.
Perfumes can be hard to put into words as they have so many different notes coming through, that tend to change the longer they're on your skin. What I love about these is that they are singular fragrances and smell exactly like what they're supposed to.
Vanilla Ice Cream is a slightly warming, sweet vanilla scent with a creaminess to it. It's a different take on a classic vanilla fragrance. It's deliciously comforting and if you love vanilla scents, I'm sure you'll love this.
When I saw these were described as cologne I had to search what they meant as I always thought it meant mens fragrance. Apparently not, cologne is used to describe fragrance concentration.
As these are single noted fragrances you can layer them to create something completely unique to you. It's easy to experiment with difference scent blends and if you don't like it, you don't have to worry about having a whole bottle to get through.
If you're looking for something different I recommend trying these. I may have find my absolute favourite fragrance (not this one) in the selection of scents I picked out but I'll post about that soon.
