Library of Flowers

This Spring I am all about “cheery” designs.

I want products to speak to me all the way from the first glance to the last application in a happy, inspiring and uplifting way.

I recently discovered a luxury product with whimsical packaging that does just that!

Library of Flowers is a “small batch American perfumery” creating luxury bath and body products in superior formulas which is the brainchild of  designer Margot Elena the creator of such cult favorite brands as TokyoMilk, Lollia, and Love & Toast.

Offering carefully crafted  products to “create memorable journeys through sight and scent”, the product range includes eau de parfums, bath oils, shower gels, lotions and candles in scrumptious scents such as Field & Flowers (a springtime blend of apricot, honeyed blossom and wildflowers), Honeycomb (an irresistible  blend of sugared fig, ambrosia honey and royal bee blossom) , True Vanilla (a sublimely sweet blend of Bergamot, Dark Vanilla and Amber) and Linden (an inspiring blend of Linden Blossom, Narcissus and Clover Honey).

This week I sampled two of Library of Flowers products Parfum Crema in Linden and Handcreme in True Vanilla.

I must admit, they had me at the packaging.  I would buy these on looks alone to display in my bathroom.  Packaged in beautiful reusable tins with sketches of flowers, botanical and wildlife that look as though they stepped straight out of the pages of a children’s storybook.

Product: Linden Parfum Crema

What is it: Parfum Crema is Perfume reimagined.  A triple-scented perfume alternative, the Parfum Crema is a modern interpretation of parfum intended to be worn in place of traditional fragrance.

Why I love it: Does double duty as a perfume and body moisturizer. Can be worn alone for a soft fresh springtime scent for day or layered with a perfume for a sultry evening fragrance.  Fits perfectly into a handbag for a no-fuss touch-up throughout the day.  No searching for a corner to spritz yourself!  Just dab a bit onto your skin.

Notes: Sweet bright floral aroma infused with notes of honey. Light, happy and airy.

Product: Handcreme in True Vanilla

What is it: A divinely creamy handcreme that is specially crafted to dissolve quickly into skin, generous amounts of Coco Butter & extra-conditioning Shea Butter deliver deep hydration to parched skin. A replenishing pick-me-up, restorative Macadamia Nut and healing Avocado Oil infuse this unique formula with superior soothing power

Why I love it: The scent is absolutely addictive and the cream delivers  immediate results to the hands that you can see and feel.  Instant hydration that isn’t the least bit greasy.  The tube fits easily in my handbag and always inspires conversation when I pull it out to apply.

Notes: Cool creamy vanilla scent with a hint of fruit. Like cotton candy in a summer breeze. Sweet, fresh and a perfect scent to take you all the way through summer.
