A precious flower

For a blast of fresh, happy vibes today, indulge in a quick spritz of The Library of Fragrance Daisy fragrance. This is a light, bright floral tinged with green that smells just like the daisy chains we made as children.

Daisy_TLoFThe name ‘daisy’ is believed to be an evolution of the name ‘day’s eye’ because the whole head of the flower closes at night and opens at dawn. Chaucer called it the ‘eye of the day’, and we think that the scent of the daisy might just be the perfect, uplifting accompaniment to any morning.

Sheer, transparent and slightly sweet, we simply cannot smell this one without thinking of sunshine and smiling.

Blend your own

Did you know that The Library of Fragrance colognes can be layered to create scents that are unique to you? Mix and match any two, or more, to create combinations for every mood and occasion. Here are some suggestions to try with Daisy:
