As a blogger and all round crazy beauty junkie, I love nothing more than testing out new and interesting products. But I never, ever thought in my wildest dreams that I'd be reviewing a Pistachio Ice Cream scented perfume...until now of course!
My mum bought me a scoop of pistachio ice cream on a Spanish holiday when I was about 6 or 7 years old, and since then, I have had a long love affair with this dessert. Sadly, it's not a common treat in the UK (why, I don't know), but on the rare occasion that I do find it, I always have to have it. There are a few pistachio scented beauty products on the market, namely Laura Mercier's gorgeous Creme De Pistache range, but it's not exactly easy on the old purse strings.
Thankfully, I've been introduced to The Library Of Fragrance who launched in 28 of their most popular scents in Boots a few months ago. You may know them as Demeter in the USA, and they have the most unique range of fragrances. If you can think of a scent that you love, they probably have it and if not, it's probably in the process of being created. Currently there are a staggering 101 fragrances to choose from, ranging from the traditional like Bulgarian Rose, Daisy and Sandalwood, to the weird and wonderful such as Fiery Curry, Sawdust, Pizza, Play Doh and Dirt.
So when I spotted Pistachio Ice Cream I knew I had to try it and it's everything I hoped it would be. It's sweet, nutty, cool and smells just like the real thing. I was worried that it would be too cloying after a while, but the sugary sweetness becomes a lot softer after an hour or so and I've had so many compliments when I've been wearing it. You can also layer the fragrances with others in the range to create your own signature scent and at only £15 a bottle, you can have a lot of fun experimenting!
If Pistachio Ice Cream isn't your thing, take a look at all of the fragrances available online at thelibraryoffragrance.com, or have a sniff of the bestsellers which are available in Boots. There's also the Limited Edition Christmas range (as shown above) which is exclusive to boots.com - enjoy!
The Library Of Fragrance Pistachio Ice Cream* is £15 for 30ml. Selected scents are currently in a 2 for £25 offer only at Boots.
