I am addicted to perfumes and body sprays. I’ll admit it. I’m always up to try out things and I feel like I’m constantly testing out perfumes on my arm at the store. Yup, I’m that girl. Whether I’m at Sephora or even the drug store, you can leave me in the perfume section for hours.
I find scents so powerful. If you think about it, sometimes one scent can bring you back to an exact moment or time in your life. How amazing is that. I have a special relationship with my first perfume ever that my dad got for me when I was just a little girl. It still remains one of my favourite scents of all time. More on that in another post though!
Today I want to talk about summer scents. To me, these are the ones that are lighter and not super strong. Now, I have to be honest, I’m the type of person to have a “signiture scent”. I usually wear the same perfume every single day. However once in a while, I like to change things up a little bit and take a break. Now just a little disclaimer I really don’t know how to describes scents very well nor do I understand base notes, top notes etc so please bear with me and I’ll try my best.
This is the Real Alta Moda perfume for women. I honestly have no clue where I got this from but I just googled it and this is avaliable for purchase on Amazon and EBay! This perfume is such a fresh floral scent. For some reason, I think of water and the ocean when I smell this. Maybe it was because I wore it around water a lot or maybe because of the bottle, who knows. This perfume isn’t overpowering at all and it’s a pretty neutral scent that provides a light smell perfect for the summer heat.
This scent brings me back to middle school. And for those of you who don’t know which perfume this is, it’s the original Juicy Couture perfume. What originally drew me in was the packaging, I’m not going to lie, it’s pretty darn cute. I would say this scent could act as both a summer and winter fragrance because there is a certain warmth and creaminess( can you even describe perfume like this?) to it that works really well with colder temperatures in my opinion. While I wouldn’t say this is a very mature scent, I do think this scent is perfect for a gal that doesn’t mind a sweeter perfume.
I got this in a gift package from Victoria Secret a long time ago and I only find myself reaching for it during the summer time. This is the VS gorgeous Spray (not the perfume). Because this is a spray, it has a lot less staying power and siliage. I world say this is a sweeter scent like a lot of the VS products. However, this is perfect for the beach or a day out where you know you’ll be sweaty and hot. What’s better is that the packing is small and light. Perfect for carrying around if you need a touch up.
I absolutely love this smell! To me, it is such a classy scent. This is the signiture coach scent for women. One thing I have to say about this is that it is very floral. However I wouldn’t say it is overpowering especially if you don’t overdo it. This is a very airy and light perfume that makes me feel… feminine and breezy. It reminds me of a white floral scent and I feel like I’m sitting on a beach in Hawaii sipping on a cold drink.
That’s it for today’s post 🙂
