As today marks the official date for National Fragrance Day, I wanted to share with you one of my recent findings. A new found favourite of mine, that is fast becoming a signature scent; Byredo - Bibliothéque!
On a recent trip to London, I made a quick pit stop at Liberty in between meetings, and headed straight over to the Byredo counter. I knew I wanted a candle of some sort, and as a huge fan of Byredo, I knew that the brand didn't disappoint when it came to finding unique, stunning scents. Bibliothéque was recommended to me, and I became instantly hooked! A beautiful smokey, creamy scent that emanates the entire room, leaving you feeling warm and snug.
Fast forward a couple of weeks later, and an email comes through notifying me that the Bibliothéque candle had been created into a fragrance for a limited time. Never before, have I booked a ticket down to London as quick just to get my hands on one of these bottles! Very rarely, can a candle get me as excited about a fragrance, than this one.
- Top Notes: Peach, Plum
- Middle Notes: Peony, Violet
- Base Notes: Leather, Patchouli, Vanilla, Musk
The first spray starts off with a bold beginning with the richness of the Plum and Violet notes swirling around and blending together creating a fruity, exotic scent. As the dry-down takes place, the scent becomes more smokey and intriguing, and begins to feel slightly sweeter with the Vanilla note becoming prominent.
I find the scent so addictive and captivating, that although the projection and sillage of Bibliothéque is enormous, I still spray far more than I should, simply because it smells absolutely divine! The longevity of the fragrance lasted for up to 7-8 hours upon my skin, and has gained me countless amounts of compliments.
