Thunderstorm by The Library of Fragrance Review #spon

Hi Guys! This post comes to you from my brand new laptop. I finally have my very own macbook and honestly I'm a little bit in love with it, I don't quite know how to use it yet, but I'm in love with it. Anyway... today I thought I'd talk to you guys about the scent Thunderstorm by The Library of Fragrance. I was actually sent a sample of this to test out a while back and ever since I've been collecting my thoughts and trying to find a more eloquent way of describing the scent, other than "it's nice!" although it is nice. Seriously though guys there are few things I hate more than trying to describe smell, it's IMPOSSIBLE!, but hey ho I'll have a whack at it, just for you lovely people.

The Library of Fragrance, Demeter in the US, is a brand that specialises in unique, almost novelty scents -they have a pizza scent which sounds awesome! - The Library of Fragrance/Demeter's aim is to highlight the beauty of the scents that surround us in our everyday lives, which I actually think is a really lovely idea... I mean I'm not sure how they're going to achieve that with the scent Funeral Home(?!) but who doesn't appreciate the smell of freshly baked cookies? Or pizza? Exactly!

So let's ask the obvious question: does it actually smell like a thunderstorm? You know that amazing smell before the heavens open and it chucks it down. Petrichor is it's actual name. Anyway the answer is yes. Yes it does. I wasn't actually expecting it to smell so much like an actual thunderstorm but it does. It really does! How they've managed to bottle that scent I will never know! When you first spritz it on it smells really earthy which immediately makes me think of sheets of rain, jumping in puddles and heavy, grey clouds, but it also smells really fresh and quite grassy. After a couple of hours that initial grassiness wears off and it leaves behind a really nice, masculine fragrance which I like a lot. It lasts really well too, normally my skin likes to eat perfume for breakfast, lunch and dinner but this has some serious lasting power. I also like to use it as a room spray for this reason, this stuff sticks around. I like it.

One of the best things about Thunderstorm, I think, is that you can layer it! This is what separates The Library of Fragrance from other brands (that and the pizza fragrance... I'll stop mentioning it now I swear!), the individual scents are designed to compliment and contrast against each other so that you can create a bespoke scent that is entirely your own, and that is so cool. I haven't actually tried layering Thunderstorm with any of the other scents yet but I definitely have my eye on Fresh Laundry, Orange Blossom and Moonbeam, so I'll keep you posted.

If you're interested in picking up Thunderstorm or any of the other fragrances, The Library of Fragrance retails at £15 and is stocked in Boots in the UK or you can pick them up online here or you can get Thunderstorm here
