Can you smell it? Spring is in the air and with that comes a lightening of mood, colors, brightness, warmer weather and all the amazing fresh, floral, crisp smells that emulate the season. So with the changing of seasons, comes my desire to change up my fragrances, amuse my sense of smell and bring in some fun, bright refreshing scents the feel like spring. Following are six fragrances that I am really enjoying right now and I thing they really capture the best of spring.
Confession: I got this fragrance for my hubby, but I loved it so much that I ended up keeping it for myself! This is a fresh, bright, clean fragrance with a little bit of sultry warmth on the dry down. It’s a very modern fragrance and I just love how the bright red bottle stands out on my bathroom counter. It has crisp refreshing top notes of lemon, icy mint, apple, and ozonic accord; heart notes of lavender, basil, genievre, white tea, and sapin; and anchoring base notes of amber white, sandalwood, and musk. I like using this scent in the morning to really kick off my day and help me get in touch with my masculine energy!
Sarah Horowitz is a Master Parfumer and I always fall in love with her beautiful, artisanal, multi-dimensional fragrances, and her newest creation Coconut Milk is no exception. This gorgeous perfume oil makes me think of being on a tropical island in a flowy dress sipping a colorful drink with a sexy man by my side. And all things coconut are really hot and on trend right now and coconut water is the new healthy beverage of choice being touted as nature’s gatorade, and it is no surprise that Sarah has tapped into that. Perfect Coconut Milk has top notes of coconut accented by almond, a sheer floral middle note of orange blossom and gardenia, and a luscious base note accord of tonka bean, vanilla and Egyptian musk. Yummy, complex, sensual and divine! I will have this luscious oil in my bag all season.
Cali Blue is a bright, fresh, oceanic fragrance that captures the look and feel of a fresh California ocean breeze. It is a crisp, clean blend of florals and citrus with an ambery vanilla base. I think the blue color is a nice unexpected twist for a fragrance and I will definitely spritz this before spending a day at the beach, it seems ideal for that. And the best part about this fragrance is that AromaEarth will donate 10% of the profits from the sale of every bottle of Cali Blue to sponsor the creation of fresh water wells in impoverished villages throughout Asia and Africa. How fab is that?! You can smell good and feel good too!
I recently discovered the beautifully made good for you products from Earthly Body at an industry beauty show and fell in love with them. I was instantly attracted to the fresh and clean white tea and ginger scent called Naked in the Woods. And I am totally into dry oils right now because they moisture your skin without being greasy and they last. The Naked in the Woods Glow Oil is fab because it contains hemp seed, coconut, soy, apricot, avocado, jojoba and vitamin E oils that pamper and nourish your skin. This smells like a fresh spring shower and leaves your skin with a hint of sheen, love it!
This is definitely a night time fragrance and would be perfect for a sexy spring date night. It’s a passionate blend of bright effervescent pink pepper, orange blossom and the sensual warmth of musk. I love the sculpted glass bottle and my man has actually commented on how much he likes it, which is always a winner in my book!
This isn’t your typical fragrance but more of a mood shifter, and if you are anything like me, it is nice to have a secret weapon like this in your beauty arsenal to help you deal with stress and the hectic pace of life. This is a unique therapeutic blend of certified organic essential oils to soothe, purify and refresh. It contains peppermint, spearmint, ravintsara, cardamom, cinnamon, chamomile, lime, and vanilla and red raspberry fragrance oils to help stimulate, strengthen, relieve tension, uplift, calm, and provide antiseptic, antibacterial, and antiviral properties. Doesn’t it sound like the perfect anecdote for stress? Fresh, yummy and peaceful.
Welcome to Spring!
