I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but I’m a big fan of Library of Fragrance. It allows us to be grown-ups and mix and match our own choice of scents when we want to go rogue i.e. when we don’t want to buy the latest over the counter launches that don’t suit our personal taste- or at least that’s why I buy them.
But that’s just one angle when it comes to the purpose behind Library of Fragrance. The other thing they manage to do so well is to produce scents that are evocative of a time or place or scene. Not only do they produce a wide choice of scent for day time or evening wear, but there are many of us, and you might be one too, who sometimes want to smell like the beach or the garden or Christmas, and that’s where Library of Fragrance comes in.
Today I have been wearing Library of Fragrance Salt Air, (well actually the last couple of days to be precise, I’m addicted). Salt Air successfully encapsulates the exact holiday smell of when you’ve been on the beach all day. There is a salty tang and an uplifting ozonic scent that doesn’t veer into imitation L’Eau D’Issey territory as ozonic so often can. Salt Air is the tang of salt, the fresh surf of the sea crashing onto the shore, and a whiff of something clean, like sun cream without the coconut, or that fresh smell of holiday bed linen as your salty sea sprayed head hits the pillow on the first night.
Sea Air is gorgeously clean smelling and uplifting and is very much a Feel Good scent. Longevity is surprisingly good- remember that these are colognes, but they always have much better longevity than you would expect from a cologne. On me, Salt Air lasted over four hours before I needed a little top up. It’s totally unisex too and would smell equally good on a male or female.
Salt Air is one of my favourite Library of Fragrance scents- and I have reviewed many of them, because, what can I say? I’m a fan of the brand.
Pop Salt Air into your holiday luggage, or better still, wear it when you’re not on holiday for that seaside feeling all summer long.
Library of Fragrance Salt Air is available from the Library of Fragrance website and Boots also carries a selection in store. My sample was from the fabulous Perfume Society Jet Set Discovery Box, which you can buy here very soon.
