Scents of Spring

Maybe I'm weird, but I get so excited to switch out my fragrances as the seasons change. I love being able to use new scents, and over time I end up associating my favorites with the seasons. Since spring has definitely sprung (at least in the South!) I wanted to share my favorite Spring fragrances with you!

BATH & BODY WORKS -- CHERRY BLOSSOM
'Cherry Blossom' is SUCH a light scent. It's subtle and delicious all at the same time, and reminds me of walking through a garden when everything starts to bloom. I definitely love wearing this with a delicate sun dress and a loose braid or flowy, tousled hair. It's like the ultimate "feminine" smell.

BATH & BODY WORKS -- MAGNOLIA BLOSSOM
'Magnolia Blossom' is another scent that makes me feel like I'm in a blooming garden. This one is slightly stronger than 'Cherry Blossom' but equally as yummy. Magnolias have always signaled the arrival of Spring, and I've loved the smell of them for as long as I can remember. 

BATH & BODY WORKS -- MANGO MANDARIN
I've used this scent for years and Chris always loves when I wear it. 'Mango Mandarin' is just the right blend of fruity and sweet. However, it's not an "in your face" citrus which I find can sometimes become overpowering during the course of a day. 

BRITNEY SPEARS -- CURIOUS
I have been in love with 'Curious' sense it came out. One summer I was even lucky enough to snag a gift set on MEGA clearance at Ulta. It had a 'Curious' beach bag, full size perfume and blueberry scented lip gloss and it was $15! FIFTEEN DOLLARS! I remember actually squealing and doing a happy dance in the middle of Ulta. And I don't care who saw it. Anyways, as far as celeb scents go, nothing can beat this light floral scent for Spring as far as I'm concerned!

VICTORIA'S SECRET -- HEAVENLY
'Heavenly' is a wonderful blend of fruity and floral scents with a slightly musky undertone. To me, it smells clean but slightly sultry and mysterious all at the same time. I think it's a more "mature" fragrance than the others I've picked and I love using it for business meetings or days when I'm going to work.

VICTORIA'S SECRET -- ISLE OF PINK LIMITED EDITION SHIMMERING FRAGRANCE MIST
This isn't the exact picture of my bottle, but I couldn't find mine online anywhere. This glittery mist comes off as sweet, light and fruity. I love the big plastic bottle. It's perfect for my dance bag because I don't have to worry about it breaking. Unfortunately, since it is (or was?) limited edition, I don't know if they still sell it.

And now.. I'd like to share with you a fragrance that I don't own, but want to:

JUICY COUTURE -- VIVA LA JUICY
Ohhhhh, 'Viva La Juicy.' Some people love it, others hate it. I know it's not a new perfume, but I never paid much attention to it because it costs a little more than I usually care to spend on fragrances. But I finally gave in and smelled it on a whim and I fell in love. So it will definitely be the next perfume I buy for myself!

And I think that's about it for my Spring scents. Let me know if you liked this installment! Maybe I'll do one for each season.

  2. I am in LOVE with the B&BW fragrances! I get mine in the plastic bottles, so they are cheap and I never have to worry about a bottle breaking in my purse. Same with VS.

    And I agree. I am absolutely obsessed with 'Curious'. I love all of Britney's perfumes.. but the original is definitely my favorite! :D
