Library of Fragrance Gin and Tonic Eau de Toilette* £15.00 (or 2 for £25.00) from Boots
If you know me at all you will know I'm rather partial to a drinkie poo every now and then, so you can imagine my excitement when I saw that Library of Fragrance had bought out a perfume in one of my favourite tipples. Gin and Tonic!
I was kindly offered the chance to try one of their new and exciting fragrances, and without even thinking I picked this one out straight away. It didn't even occur to me that there may be a chance of me smelling like a brewery or like I'd been on the razzel the night before, no. But as I waiting for it to arrive I was starting to doubt my initial choice. Maybe I should have gone with something more nose friendly?
I'm glad to say that I think I definitely made the right choice. The fragrance was nothing like I was expecting. It contains every good part of the iconic drink, it's fresh, fruity, zesty with a slight musk that makes it sexy and inviting - I was blown away and instantly fell in love.
The smell also reminds my of my youth and a scent I used to adorn. If you were a fan of the likes of Calvin Klein CK be then this you will love! Like my throw back scent this is slightly masculine (so definitely a unisex fragrance), with the zesty crispness of a newly sliced lemon and the freshness of ice cubes floating in the sparkling tonic water - this is MY kinda scent!
This isn't your thing? Don't worry there are loads of different scents to choose from. Maybe 'Baby Powder' or 'Fireplace', or even 'Grass' and 'Sunshine' might be your scent? I would definitely recommend sniffing them out next time you're in Boots!
