Spring Scents: Jo Malone ‘Blue Skies & Blossom’ Dupes From ‘The Library Of Fragrance’

You only have to scroll down your Instagram feed to see that spring is in the air, and blossoms are blooming across the country. There’s something uplifting and invigorating about the sweet smell of a blossom note, evoking memories of bright blue skies and sunshine in the sky, which is why the fragrance house of Jo Malone have made a signature trio of scents based on the concept. Their ‘Blue Skies & Blossom‘ collection is beautiful, delicate, elegant and enhancing all at the same time – but each bottle will set you back an incredible £86.00. If you love the concept, adore sweet floral scents but simply can’t justify the price point, then The Library of Fragrance is coming to your rescue. Within their repertoire are three scents that embody the concept completely, but are a much more purse friendly £15.00 each.

Part of their permanant floral collection, Cherry, Apple and Orange blossom offer a trio of scents that are incredibly wearable and perfectly suited to these warm spring days. Cherry Blossom is soft, sweet and elegant with just a hint of warming cherry; Apple Blossom captures the warm, sweet and delicate floral scent of the blossom, with just a hint of fresh apple; Orange Blossom fragrance is full, lush and exquisite – a perfect
adaption of the scent of the living flower, carried by a gentle breeze
on a warm summer’s evening.

A spritz of any of the scents adorns your body with an uplifting fragrance that’s incredibly light, meaning you can both layer the individual fragrances or top up throughout the day. Although the packaging isn’t quite Jo Malone standards, for a scent that’s definitely seasonal it’s much more justifiable to opt for the £15.00 option – leaving you £70.00 to buy at least two new pairs of shoes instead! I’m not normally a fan of floral notes, but I’d happily wear any one of these delicious scents as we step into warmer weather; I’m leaving behind my musty and heavy fragrances in favour of something lighter and more season appropriate. 

Are you looking forward to trying either the Jo Malone scents, or The Library of Fragrance alternatives? Do you like to invest in statement scents, or opt for affordable options that you change up every season?

    I'm obsessed with fruity scents, so this sounds amazing. I really enjoy Jo Malone scents, but can't justify the price tag. And I actually think the Library bottles are much cuter! -Katherine http://thegreenbows.blogspot.ca
