Library of Fragrance Gingerbread Spray Review

The fragrance aisles are jam packed with garish celebrity fragrances and expensive scents you can only afford once in a blue moon. Library of Fragrance are a breath of fresh air in the overcrowded market.

They've stripped back all the complicated base and top tones, which us bloggers find amazingly hard to describe without a cheat sheet and gone back to basics with scents like Daisy, Fresh Coconut and Rain. The simple names describe the scents perfectly. Their most popular lines are Baby Powder, Pure Soap and Clean Skin - it's like your favourite fresh scents from Yankee Candle being made into a scent!
I have the Gingerbread fragrance*, which is £15. Cute little side story: every time my Nan took me shopping, she used to buy me a gingerbread from Gerrards Bakery, so this fragrance brings back some memories.

Library of Fragrance describe the Gingerbread scent as 'warm and sexy', and I totally agree. This scent is much more grown up than you would have imagined. It has a warm and deep spicy scent that is juxtaposed against sweet vanilla sugar notes.

As for longevity, the scent does last well for a cologne spray, but as the bottle suggests these are a 'pick-me-up' so you can refresh the scent throughout the day.

They've now added some classic Christmas scents to the range, including Egg Nog, Cranberry, Christmas in New York, and Christmas Bouquet. Their range of scents can be layered so they'd make a great present, you could select three which compliment each other and make your own customised set.

Library of Fragrance scents are stocked on their website and at selected Boots stores/ Boots online.

  2. thanks for sharing! x

  3. This sounds absolutely gorgeous, I don't think I'd normally pick a 'gingerbread' scent up but the way you've described it as being a warming and grown up scent has swayed me to actually have a little look in person! :) Tempting haha
