Right, I'm going to try and explain what these are properly as if you haven't heard of them before (I had so I was familiar with the concept) it might sound a bit unusual.
These scents from The Library of Fragrance have been formulated to smell exactly like the object/experience that they're named after - the scents I have above are pretty self explanatory but they do ones called 'Fireplace' which smells like pine cone embers on a log fire, Thunderstorm, Moonbeam etc - really interesting fragrances which do actually smell like what they're meant to be.
The fragrances that I received for review were Mango, Sunshine (which has a touch of coconut in it to represent sun lotion and notes which envoke a warm cotton t-shirt and sun-warmed skin...you'd have to smell it to really get it but that is what it reminds me of!), Vanilla Ice Cream and Peach and I can happily say that they all smell "right". In fact, the Vanilla Ice Cream one - probably my favourite - smells so nice it makes me feel hungry! When you first spray them there's a brief moment where it smells really strong but this calms down quickly, leaving a nice subtle scent behind. There's a huge list of the fragrances you can buy here.
The other great thing about these is that you can layer them to create a signature scent that's all your own and contains your favourite flavours. The best way of describing mine when they're combined is "sunny" - sunshine, fruit and ice cream...yum - it makes me think of holidays and chilling out on a beach which is no bad thing in November!
The scent lasts really well without being overpowering too which I think is important. Overall I've really liked these fragrances (I tend to like sweet and fruity scents rather than anything too floral or spicy) and there are quite a few other scents I want to try too. I actually think these would make a lovely little Christmas present too so I might start taking note of what type of scents people like!
