Over 2000 years ago, Alexander the Great raised a new capitale in his name, Alexandria, in the timeless land of Egypt. The radiant city became the intellectual capital of the antique world. The great thinkers of the age from all civilizations came to consult the 700,000 scrolls filling the shelves made in precious woods of the most legendary library of all times. 


Library of Alexandria perfume scent surprises and fascinates with its softness and sweetness, it is a gourmand perfume for women: the freshness of the orange blossom sparkles on top at first. The French Eau de Parfum then lingers on the soft roses and creamy jasmine. The base balances it all with round, sweet, sensuous and enveloping aromas of vanilla beans for a very long lasting perfume. 


This perfume scent reflects softness and shows a sweet and gourmand aspect. It's warmth and velvet aspects are perfect for any day, all year long.


This is the LIGHT version of the perfume, it displays a gourmand and sweet aspect. If you'd prefer a more intense, woody and old school charactere (Shalimar by Guerlain kind of vibe), go on the INTENSE version page.

Thank you for your review! It will be shorty added in there.




I'm a woman on the go who wants to smell and feel good all the time. It's been a serious challenge finding a perfume that smells right for me (natural, sophisticated, Earthy, high quality), while maintaining the scent so i don't need to reapply in 2 hours. Finding scent strip was a delight as this is a true scent Alchemist (from paris!) with formulations that STAY. I fell in love with the scent (spray it in my long hair) and it stays literally for days--- even post surfing in the ocean. I can finally relax in having found my go to perfume brand, scent, and a product that lasts and represents the quality I desire.

I really love this perfume. I am a huge fan of rose but have had trouble w/ rose perfumes because I did not care for the other notes that were combined w/ them like peony, or lily of the valley etc.. So I would just wear rose otto oil. The problem w/ wearing essential oils is you only smell that plant and fragrance is about telling a story w/ the many fragrant notes of the perfume. This rose perfume is perfection! It is a beautiful full, lush rose fragrance and it smells like the rose garden after a soft rain as the sun breaks through the clouds. I am wearing it right now and it makes me feel so peaceful, so serene. My husband loves it on me and says I smell feminine and beautiful. This perfume is well worth the price, I loved it so much I bought 2 bottles. Thank you Jil for creating it.
