About libella
Biography:
I was a child who spent hours emptying the content of her mother’s beauty products drawers to smell everything and who collected samples no one else wanted…

I became a teenager who proudly wore her Chanel while still enjoying discovering her friends’ CKOne (ah, how we passed the time during high school theater rehearsals in the 90s!).

I grew to be a young adult who owned one signature fragrance, usually a pretty classic oriental. Then as years went by, I slowly went from owning one signature fragrance to owning two, three and four different perfumes at a time.

A little while back, I got to smell the Replica collection by Maison Margiela and that triggered something. A perfume can smell like a beloved place (Whispers in the library) or a fun activity (By the fireplace) rather than a polished woman? Mind blown.

I delved into the madness of this fantastic hobby. A lot of my free time has been and is still spent educating myself on the history of perfume (got to know the classics), the subtleties of notes/accords and the newest releases. My collection grew quickly in the last two years and then exponentially during the pandemic. I order a lot of samples/decants regularly to fuel the discoveries.

Designer scents are still easier to love for me, but I am enjoying slowly discovering niche offerings, appreciating their artistry and giving them time to grow on me.

I love orientals and gourmands. I like fresh green notes and aquatics. Classic dry chypres, white flowers, animalics and leather are a challenge.

I don’t particularly struggle with unisex or masculine leaning fragrances; they are perfect for days when I feel like a badass.

I do care about reasonable projection and mostly, longevity.
