The Library of Fragrance Scents. // If you like Pina Coladas..

  The Library of Fragrance scents in Pina Colada and Vanilla Cake Batter. 

Like most of my product discoveries, I stumbled across the brand The Library of Fragrance on Instagram. Quite often, when I'm bored or lacking in inspiration, I like to use the #bbloggers hashtag to search through photos of what everyone else is using/buying or what they're up to - anyone else do this? I spotted the Pina Colada scent and asked in the comments if it was worth picking up *yes, I'm that annoying girl on Instagram* and when they replied saying it was amazing, I had an instant - I need this in my life - moment and within minutes I was searching the web on my IPhone to find out where I could order it from. I think the brand is quite new to the UK and currently only available on their website and Boots. I opted for their official website, which did work out more expensive, purely because Boots don't currently stock their full range and the scents I wanted they didn't have. They have 90 fragrances on their website *swoon* ranging from the unique and bizarre - mushroom, pizza, pipe tobacco and play-doh to the delicious - strawberry ice cream, tangerine, vanilla cake batter, fresh coconut and marshmallow.

I picked up two fragrances, Pina Colada - a blend of Coconut Cream, Fresh Pineapple and Light Rum, and Vanilla Cake Batter - Sweet, Pure, Vanilla Indulgence. I'm definitely not a floral girl, my main aim in life is just to smell of candyfloss, baked goods or fruit and I can definitely achieve that with these products. The Library Of Fragrance scents are simply packaged in a clear glass bottle with a label that lists just the product name and scent, finished with a simple silver lid. The concentrated scents are the most impressive offering, as soon as you remove the lid you're hit with the fragrance. Pina Colada is, as you imagine, a fun, sweet scent that'll leave you smiling. It smells just like a pina colada tastes and you can almost imagine yourself on a beach, slathered in coconut scented sun cream, with a pina colada in hand.
Vanilla Cake Batter has a very sweet scent, that smells identical to vanilla essence, and as the title would suggest, cake batter. It's almost like Yankee Candles Vanilla Cupcake bottled in a fragrance. Need I say any more?

If you're ordering through their website, each fragrance will set you back £15, but for 30ml and being such good quality, I wouldn't think twice about ordering more, however if you're interested but not completely sold, they have 23 scents on offer in Boots - 2 for £25.

What's your current favourite fragrance, and are you also an Instagram addict like me?
