Summer Scents I love

honeysuckle, gala apple and stephanotis
purple passion fruit, Shangri-la yellow peony and vanilla orchid

Stella by Stella McCartney
soft rose and amber
I don't know about you, but I have an aversion to strong pungent perfumes that so many ladies seem to engulf themselves in. Standing in line with a super drenched in scent lady makes me wish I had used the drive through! Then there are the times when someone walks by and you get an ever so gentle waft of something light and refreshing. That's where I want to be. Gone are the days of Jean Nate cologne as the go to gift for an office Christmas gift exchange. No more Poison or Shalimar attacking our senses in the elevator. Those days are gone my friend. Embrace the clean fresh fragrances that just make you feel like you smell clean and happy!

I actually prefer body mists for their light and refreshing smells, like Victorious Secret, Secret Charm and Bombshell. There are many varieties at VS so you can choose floral or fruity scents. Bombshell also comes in a Summer edition which has a citrus edge to it but I prefer the floral regular Bombshell.
Stella is a long time favorite of mine with a modern soft rose scent, not at all like your granny's rose perfume. There is also a Stella Nude scent which is also so lovely and light!
Hope you have a fresh and cool summer!


  1. I agree!!! My favorite scent of all time was Sandalwood Rose lotion from Bath and Body Works with a delicate, soothing aroma that was just scrumptious. Now they've changed the formula, and I don't like the new one. Why can't they just stick with what's good?

  2. I love Clean Cotton and Moonlight Path from B&B--yummy!
