Today’s post is all about one of my favorite things but for some reason, they don’t get a lot of blog time around here.
Today, it’s all about scents 🙂 .
It’s a running joke this baseball season between the moms about perfumes and scents. We have one mama in the group who ALWAYS smells amazing. Seriously, it will be 98 degrees, we will have been sitting out in the sun watching baseball for 7 hours, and then she’ll walk by and instantly, everyone is like “Ohhh, who smells so good?”.
Every. Single. Time.
Over the last three years that I’ve known her, I’ve actually bought more perfume tried more brands than ever before because SHE always smells so good! My two all-time faves that you’ve heard me mention a gazillion times are still Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb and Burberry Britt, but now, I have a few other faves too.
Okay, here we go, let me break them down for you…
#1 REPLICA BEACH WALK: This was probably the first perfume I bought because it smelled so amazing on my friend. It’s light, it’s fresh, it’s very beachy, salty, summery without being fruity or floral. I think it works perfectly when it’s hot outside because it doesn’t come off too strong or perfume-y. She also convinced me to buy By The Fireplace in the travel size for winter months, and I really like that too. It’s very woodsy/wintery.
#2 VIKTOR & ROLF FLOWERBOMB: I mean, I cannot even tell you when I started wearing this scent. Ten years ago, maybe? It’s very feminine with powder notes. This is my go-to in spring and summer for church, dinners out, “nicer” events. It’s very girly and always makes me happy!
#3 JULIETTE HAS A GUN: Okay, so the first time my friend sat near me and smelled like this perfume, I was quite taken aback by the name. I had never heard of this brand before, but they have several scents! This perfume is one I wear year around. It’s not flowery or perfume-y…it’s not heavy, it’s not light. It’s not fruity. I don’t know what it is…but I love it and am actually wearing this one today!! I have it in the .25 oz size.
#4 BURBERRY BRITT: Awwww! This is the first scent that I smelled and declared “my scent”. It used to be easier to find this perfume, but now, I have to look pretty hard. If I had to pick, this would be my absolute favorite! In my opinion, it’s a sophisticated vanilla scent. It’s not sweet…but it leans more vanilla than flowers or fruit. I adore this one.
#5 ATELIER IN ORANGE SANGUINE: Well okay, I would bathe in this every day. This company makes a plethora of amazing scents, but by far, my favorite is this Orange Sanguine. It’s like stepping into the Amalfi coast on a July day. It smells like oranges and the beach and everything amazing. I love this one so much too!!!
So, those would be my TOP FIVE!
I, of course, have questions for you 🙂 !
First, what is your all-time favorite scent? I might need to try it!! Second, how many spritzes do you apply? I was only applying two (for like 20 years!), but my friend told me I needed to up it to 6 or 8 which sounds aggressive but who am I to argue with her?! She always smells amazing 🙂 .
