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.”

  • Liquorice

    From: 5,00 

    Mmmmm....candy, tell me more.........Well, I can tell you that Demeter's Licorice is just that-the scent of black licorice twists, just like when we were kids. Licorice is a botanical, a shrub native to southern Europe and Asia, the roots of which have two primary desirable qualities: first, some varieties of licorice root are fifty times…

  • Pruning Shears

    From: 5,00 

    Pruning Shears has always been about the Rose more than the bush or the shears. In this revision of our original scent, we have made sure the Rose stays the star, with a fresh and light fragrance that centers on Bulgarian Rose and All Natural (and fabulously expensive) Rose Absolute. Available as a Body Lotion

  • Almond

    From: 5,00

  • Sugar Cookie

    From: 5,00 

    Realistic and delicious, Demeter's Sugar Cookie is sweet, simple, and fresh from the oven warm. The Frisbie Baking Company: In this otherwise simple baking operation we find the origin of the earliest Frisbee! The company offered a variety of bakery goodies, including pies and cookies, and therein resides the root of the controversy, for there…

  • Black Russian

    From: 5,00 

    A sharp and sexy blend of coffee liqueur and vodka, Demeter’s Black Russian is the personification of night itself.

  • Sour Apple Lollipop

    From: 5,00 

    In 200 AD, famous Greek physician Hippocrates, recommends sweet apples with meals as aids to digestion and sour apples only for fainting and constipation. Of course Hippocrates never had the advantage of tasting a Sour Apple Lollipop. If he had, he undoubtedly would have understood that it was neither about fainting nor constipation, but about…

  • 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…

  • Candy Cane Truffle

    From: 5,00 

    Peppermint Candy Canes are fabulous Christmas treats and decorations, but can be a bit overwhelming as a fragrance. So we made Candy Cane Truffle, using the chocolate notes to soften, round and balance the peppermint of the candy cane. The result is a surprisingly sophisticated, and shockingly wearable fragrance. Twilight Theater by M.L. Kiser Candy-cane…
