I went for 'Espresso' to ease myself in (a middle ground on the odd-scale) and was kindly sent this bottle by the team. I'm not a coffee drinker, I'm more suited to tea, but I love the smell of fresh coffee and coffee flavoured things. When this 30ml cologne spray arrived I was unsure what to expect and whether I would like, or even wear, the perfume. Magically it smells just like coffee! It's quite a strong scent (which I like, because it lasts longer) and to me it's a sweeter smell than Espresso - more similar to a slice of coffee and walnut cake or a sugary frappuccino from Starbucks!
More importantly I wouldn't feel funny about wearing this on a day to day basis. Lots of people love the smell of coffee and I imagine baristas go home smelling just like this everyday. Designer perfumes are known for using coffee under-notes in their best selling products. It certainly makes a change from my usual floral/fruity fragrances. I'm so excited to see what else The Library of Fragrance has to offer. A selection of their fragrances will be available in Boots throughout the UK soon, but visit their website to explore all the options. Each 30ml bottle is £15. I'm eager to try Thunderstorm and Fireplace!
