Love the package
Very strong musky perfume, when first sprayed all I can smell is musk and then it gradually becomes more floral on me. This perfume unfortunately isn’t for me, all the different notes blend into one and I can’t differentiate them. In addition, it’s slightly too strong for me and gives me a slight headache unfortunately.

I love this perfume, it has such a unique and beautiful scent which last for ages. I haven't found anything similar from other brands and you only need a couple of sprays to smell it for hours. I wish there was a body cream version of this to layer up.

This is my favourite Byredo scent, it is fruity but the leather makes it feel more grown up. Definitely reminds me of a library or a perfumed book if that makes sense?! Can’t really compare it to other perfumes, I think is quite unique. Performance is great, lasts ages on my skin, absolutely love it!

Absolutely adore this scent
I bought the room spray version of Bibliotéque without having smelt it in person, as I like L'air du Rien (another 'library' smelling perfume). I fell head over heels with it and thought I'd try the eau de parfum as well. Unsurprisingly it's better than the room spray and is now vying for the top spot in my favourite perfumes ever. Absolutely love it.

Divine scent. This is not what I expected at all, but I am blown away by it each time I reverently spray it on my wrist.
I confess that I blind-bought it having not been able to test it out anywhere. The notes sounded so appealing to me, and I was willing to take the risk. Phew! I do actually adore it. I get the boozy jam note other reviewers mentioned, and the opening is similar to JM's Velvet Rose and Oud (for a few seconds). Then it becomes a very powerful sweet scent for about half an hour, before it calms down to a smoky, milky skin scent.
It's certainly unusual. Despite the intense sweetness at the beginning, I cannot imagine this on a teenage girl; I'm in my early twenties and I barely get away with it. It's a mature sweetness due the smoky, tobacco-like notes underneath, and refuses to be linear. Each time I sniff my wrists or down my jumper, I get a new note. I imagine this perfume will change wildly with the seasons or depending on your skin chemistry. If you are looking for a safe, functional, every day perfume then you definitely need to test this first. It's not your typical power-house workday perfume, but could make for a striking signature if you can pull it off! I usually think of perfumes such as these as more artistic concepts, like unusually cut clothes and bizarre jewellery that look breath-taking, but you're not sure if you personally can wear it!
It doesn't smell like a library (while we can enjoy the smell of old books and wood varnish, it's probably not what we want to smell on ourselves or other humans), but it does conjure up the aesthetic of a well-read, scholarly woman who wears romantic blouses and pleated trousers, keeps her hair styled in an artfully messy up-do, carelessly applies flawless red lipstick... She probably smokes as well. But this is my impression, and as this strikes me as such a changeable fragrance, I would be fascinated as to how it develops on other women and men!
Definitely not a safe blind buy, but in this case my gamble paid off! The dry down on me is subtle, but casually powerful. After three spritzes (both wrists and neck) yesterday morning, I was still cocooned in sultry softness when I woke up today.
