What we are

The Library of Fragrance consists consists of over 300 different fragrances inspired by everyday objects and experiences. In short, we are the olfactory version of “stopping to smell the roses”. We isolate and highlight the beautiful scents that surround us every day, in wearable formats.

Why so many different scents?  Because our sense of smell triggers our strongest emotional response, choosing and wearing a LOF fragrance is a personal expression of that emotional response.  That makes The Library of Fragrance the only fragrance house that is all about the user, and not about the designer.  There is no fashion to aspire to, or lifestyle to step into. Your choice of one of our fragrances is all about you.

That doesn’t mean you should be giving up your designer and prestige fragrances; some of them are truly fabulous. But there is so much more to the power and beauty of scent than complex and big fragrances.

Christopher Brosius, founder

“A person’s fragrance “wardrobe” should include more than just designer or classic perfumes. Having a fragrance wardrobe of just designer perfumes is like having a wardrobe of nothing but evening clothes – beautiful but not what you might want for everyday life. You need the comfortable clothes as well.”

  • Sandalwood

    From: 5,00 

    Calm is called for. Break out the sandalwood! One of the oldest incense materials, Sandalwood has been used for over four millennia. Sandalwood is a very important ingredient in Japanese incense, in both traditional and modern formulas. Today, the Mysore forests are virtually depleted and the remaining trees too immature to produce quality Sandalwood or…

  • Quince

    From: 5,00 

    Quince is a rich yellow-green fruity entrant. The Quince fragrance by The Library of Fragrance is like a green apple, but light and more transparent, with more citrusy notes. It is an addicting scent. The Quince has been under cultivation since way back in the day. It is a native of Persia and Anatolia and…

  • Thunderstorm

    From: 5,00 

    Have you ever considered the olfactory side of rain? You know it's coming, you can smell it in the air (exactly!). It does seem that on summer days when it is hot and dry, with a thunderstorm brewing just over the next hill, you can `smell the rain. Well, you can smell something, but rain?…

  • Hibiscus

    From: 5,00 

    A sweet and exotic floral that conjures visions of a tropical paradise. The essence of the living flower, not an overwrought perfumed version. This is Hibiscus for today. An overdue modern update on a classic fragrance note.

  • First Love

    From: 5,00 

    First Love is an irresistible, unique and unusual light floral combination of lemon zest, jasmine, honeysuckle, water lotus and white rose.We launched First Love several years ago, exclusively in South Korea, and it is so good that wanted to share it.

  • Lilac

    From: 5,00 

    Beautiful spring flowers, driving by it perhaps, a quick burst of intense, almost overwhelming, scent...We're in danger of some "purple prose" here, we know. But, we do love it. Lilac grows as a shrub or small tree up to 20 feet in height producing a crowd of erect stems, clothed with spirally arranged flakes of…

  • Kitten Fur

    From: 5,00 

    Cats. Love them or hate them. There is no in between. But everyone loves Kittens!  Now after 15 years of effort, Demeter has captured the olfactory essence of the warmth and comfort of that purrfect spot, just behind a kitten's neck. A fragrance that truly purrs. And so, will anyone who experiences it. By Hazel…

  • Cranberry

    From: 5,00 

    Cranberries are one of only three fruits native to North America -- the other two are blueberries and Concord grapes. This tasty little berry was a staple in the diets of American Indians long before the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock. They used cranberry juice to dye their rugs and blankets a colorful red. And,…

  • Nutmeg Ice Cream

    From: 5,00 

    Soothe your heart and soul with the warm, fragrant scent of The Library of Fragrance Nutmeg Ice Cream. Enveloped in fresh cream and garnished with a touch of sugar, that’s just enough to remove any bitterness, but not enough to make the fragrance sweet. Fragrant Nutmeg is the star here, but balanced to be wearable.…
