Scent Memories | & Giveaway

Do you have a perfume in your collection that reminds you of a certain moment in time whenever you spritz it? Maybe you have a few fragrances each one evoking its own unique story. We can form emotional bonds with scents and sometimes all it takes is a quick spray of perfume to take us back to that prominent memory. To celebrate National Fragrance Day on on the 21st March, alongside The Fragrance Foundation and The Library of Fragrance I'm exploring my own favourite scent memories.

The Library of Fragrance have such a huge selection of 'everyday' scents that it's the best place to start if you're looking for something very particular. The fragrances can be worn alone or layered together and I knew I had some in my collection that were perfect reminders of wonderful times...

Salt Air & Sunshine
Mixing these two light fragrances together takes me to the seaside and to those family holidays by the coast. Salt Air is a very subtle cool fragrance warmed up by Sunshine which has hints of sun cream on warm skin.

Clean Sheets
Exactly as it sounds, light, fresh and clean. Who wouldn't want to be reminded of curling up in freshly washed bed sheets. But more romantically, Clean Sheets smells just like my boyfriend's skin (he's not a typical smelly man, he actually always smells sweet and scrubbed - how annoying!)

Not being a coffee drinker you'd think I would shy away from a scent called 'Espresso' but I actually love the smell of fresh coffee! To me this Espresso has been slightly sweetened, and reminds me of my sister. When she's around, coffee is being brewed and fills the house. There's no better smell to wake up to.


The Library of Fragrance have kindly offered my readers the chance to win three full size fragrances of your choice! UK residents only please. Enter through the Rafflecopter widget below and be sure to leave contact information in the form of your Twitter handle or email address. The winner will be selected at random and contacted one week from today on Friday 11th March 2016, good luck!
