Holiday in a bottle

There are certain scents that trigger memories in my mind and coconut is always one which conjures up thoughts of being somewhere hot on a beach. I absolutely love the smell of anything coconutty so when I was scent a bottle of 'Fresh Coconut' from The Library of Fragrance I couldn't wait to see what it was like... 

If you haven't already heard of The Library of Fragrance, they're a newly launched company who have created a 'library' of 101 different fragrances which are mainly based on every day things which we sometimes wouldn't even think of making into a perfume; like Apple Pie, Lemon Meringue and Ginger Bread. I actually really love the idea and there are some really intriguing fragrances (as well as some which make me go a bit weird, like Play Doh and Pizza!). Boots stock a smaller (but still quite extensive) selection of the most popular fragrances which happens to include Fresh Coconut*, the one I'm talking about today.

The best thing about blogging about this fragrance in particular is that I don't have to bother about 'top notes' and 'base notes' and all that complicated stuff that I can never get my head around when i'm trying to describe a perfume because if you smell from the bottle this just smells exactly like Malibu (as in the drink). In fact I wouldn't even need to compare it to Malibu because this just smells exactly like you would expect; of coconut! The scent is much less powerful once it's settled onto your skin and it becomes a much more subtle coconut fragrance. 

The beauty about The Library of Fragrance is that you don't have to wear them alone, you could buy a couple and team them together to create a completely unique fragrance for yourself. So you could maybe pair up Caramel and Salt Air to create something like a 'Salted Caramel' type fragrance? They're not expensive either at £15.00 for a 30ml bottle so if you were to buy two you're probably still spending less than what you would on your regular perfume but you're getting 60ml of product and essentially 3 different scents! Boots actually have a 2 for £25 deal on the ones they stock at the moment, you can find their range here.

Have you tried anything from The Library of Fragrance yet, if not, which fragrance has caught your eye?
