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.”

    At The Library of Fragrance, we do not involve ourselves with the politics, but with the beautiful scent of the Cannabis Flower.

  • First Kiss

    From: 5,00

  • Lotus Flower

    From: 5,00 

    The Library of Fragrance Lotus Flower is a unique study of contrasts: an exotic floral that is soft and powdery and in no way overwhelming. Light green notes, and a gentle, watery undercurrent soften it further. A very peaceful scent that still makes a statement. Lotus flowers have been used throughout history in Southeast Asia. They…

  • Watermelon Lollipop

    From: 5,00 

    The Library of Fragrance Watermelon is about the mouth-puckering contrast between sugary-sweet fresh fruit and the eye-popping tartness. This is an olfactory wake up call like no other! Southern food historian, John Egerton, believes watermelon made its way to the United States with African slaves as he states in his book, "Southern Food." Watermelon, however,…
