Now that we’re properly cold and wearing woollies it’s time to bring the rabbit out of the hat. If there is a cosier, warmer smelling scent than Library of Fragrance Fireplace I have yet to come across it.
Somehow the exact smoky dustiness of a real log fire has been captured in a scent. If I’m not mistaken, something extra has been added too: not quite spice, but more of a peppery note. I name it old wood beams in a rustic farmhouse as the wind whips the windows outside.
Fireplace is a delightful wintry fragrance that is equally good on women or men. In fact, this would smell amazing on a man wearing a warm jumper as if to say “I am all capable and manly and have big strong arms”.
I have mentioned Fireplace briefly before in my review of Library of Fragrance Gingerbread, and I will reiterate here how well Gingerbread and Fireplace go together. These two were simply made to be worn on freezing November evenings. Longevity is pretty good too at around five hours. To make it last even longer, spray your hair and clothes as these will keep the scent longer than skin. This is especially good on scarves.
Play Bing Crosby and pour yourself a sherry.
