Simple Scents for Spring

I've featured The Library of Fragrance (Demeter) on my blog before, you can read that post here which goes into more detail about the company and all their unusual one-note scents.
Today I wanted to share the fragrances in my collection that are perfect for spring and summer.

If you're thinking about buying a new perfume you might want to try out these before parting with a lot of cash, as each 30ml bottle is only £15 in Boots and currently it's two for £25!

As you can imagine, this fragrance is fresh, clean and light. It smells just like freshly chopped cucumber! I don't know how LoF managed to capture these scents with such accuracy but it's spot on. Lovely for spring. Spritz on generously as this one isn't very strong but if that's how you like your perfumes you'll love this.

Mountain Air 
One of my favourites. It's very fresh but with a classic 'perfumey' edge that reminds me of Marc Jacobs Daisy - but softer. Like wild flowers on a mountain top. LoF say all their scents are unisex but I think this one in particular would be suited to both sexes.

I love peony flowers, and they have their own unique scent which LoF have captured perfectly. It's not one I'd wear everyday, it's muskier than most floral fragrances but I can imagine this will be a winner with lots of people.

Apple Blossom
Girly, with mixes of floral and fruity notes! This one reminds me of the DKNY Be Delicious Fresh Blossom. A great everyday fragrance that you might not want in the winter but at this time of year it's ideal. Another favourite of mine, but then I'm always a fan of scents with fruity base notes.  

Being completely honest, I really dislike this one. It's a strong scent that's almost too natural for me. There are no hints of anything other than a strong pollen/flower smell. I've included it in this post as it's one of the new releases from LoF and for some, this may be the best smell in the world!

The beauty of The Library of Fragrance scents is that they are designed to be mixed and layered together. Looking at the above, I think Apple Blossom and Mountain Air would layer up very well, so I'll be giving that a try this week. Do you own any of the LoF fragrances? Let me know your favourites for spring or any that you are lusting after...

  2. Although I'm not usually a perfume girl, these seem to be right up my alley. I'd love to try one, and they're very cheap too! I think my favourite is either Apple Blossom or Mountain Air. Could you tell me whether they apply by rollerball or spray?

    1. Hi Amanda, they are sprays :) Great for throwing in your bag too as they aren't heavy or bulky x
