Last year I helped with some research for The Library of Fragrance and they recently got back in touch to see if I would be interested in reviewing one of their fragrances. After looking through the list of 101 scents available direct from The Library of Fragrance website it was quite difficult choosing just one as they all sounded fantastic. After a lot of deliberation I finally decided on Bulgarian Rose.
The Library of Fragrance launched in the UK in September 2014 but has been a favourite in America for almost 20 years under the name of Demeter Fragrance Library. The range comprises of scents that smell exactly as they sound, the idea being that you choose a fragrance based on the sort of things that you like. An added bonus is the scents can be layed together to create new fragrances that are unique to you.
With 101 different fragrances available on their website there really is something to suit everyone. There are classic floral fragrances like Bulgarian Rose, Lavender and Jasmine and also more unusual ones like Rain, Gin & Tonic and Play-Doh! If you prefer to try the fragrance before you buy Boots stock 28 of the fragrances and as well as the traditional fragrances they do stock some more unusual ones like Fireplace and Moonbeam!!
Unlike some of the more unusual fragrances which I wouldn't have a clue what they would smell like I did have an idea of what the Bulgarian Rose fragrance would be like and I wasn't disappointed. It is initially quite strong so you really don't need much and I was quite impressed at how long the fragrance lasted, I could still smell the faint fragrance on my wrists a few hours later which is great for a £15 perfume. The simple but elegant glass bottle is the perfect size for my handbag and means I can stay smelling of roses all day.
The fragrances cost £15 for 30ml but they are currently on offer at Boots for £25 for 2 bottles.
I have been looking at the fragrances in Boots and think I will try the Rain fragrance next as I think that will go well with Bulgarian Rose.
