Scents of Summer

Yay! I'm so glad to be back, y'all! Not posting all last week was killing me.. but I was just so exhausted I never had a chance to. I slept for 18 hours straight today just to catch up and return to being a normally functioning human being.

I'll be honest and say that I have been mixing up my Spring and Summer perfumes for a while now.. Mainly because it's almost impossible to believe that it's still technically spring when temps are in the high 90s every day! However, I wanted to wait until at least June before I posted my favorite summer perfumes. And.. here they are!

Miami Glow by J.Lo is my ultimate summer fragrance. It's warm and sensual and it's perfect to wear for a night out after spending all day lounging pool side. It has notes of pink grapefruit, passion fruit and vanilla orchid mixed with a musk which give it a really great citrus, musky scent. Oh! And the bottle comes with a cute little braided anklet or bracelet. How cute!

I've had several scents from The Healing Garden over the years, including this one. The bottle I have now was my Granny's, so it's extra special to me. I love the smell of jasmine, and this is a great scent that is light and floral-y but it also has a depth to it that makes it pleasant to wear. This is a great date night fragrance!
When I was little, I had a scented My Little Pony that smelled like "Soap" and it smelled just like this perfume. Weird, right?! This fragrance is kind of like a floral mixed with honeysuckle, but it is a great morning/afternoon fragrance. I love wearing it with maxi dresses or for going shopping.

I love this one! It's like the perfect, beach-y, coconut fragrance. AND it's safe to use on your hair if you feel the need. Out of all my summer fragrances, I'd say I get the most use out of this one. I'm not sure if they still make it? I haven't been to a VS in foreverrrr (which makes the Hubby SUPER happy) and I had a ridiculously hard time searching for a picture of the bottle online.

So this isn't specifically a "Summer" scent as much as it is just one I've been wearing a lot lately. This was another one of my Granny's perfumes and I really like the fragrance so I've been turning to this one 3-4 days a week. Faith Hill's perfume is another floral-y musk, so it fits in well with the other scents I've picked for summer. This is probably the most "adult" scent I have listed for the summer, so if I were going to business meetings or something important that was work related I'd reach for this in a heartbeat.

Sweet & Tart is my last Summer scent and I'm almost positive it's been discontinued. It's very light and citrus-y at first, but once it dries you pick up a bit of the sweet/sugar note that it has.. which holds true to the Sweet & Tart name. I've paired this with Warm Vanilla Sugar from B&BW and it makes a truly amazing fragrance. Sweet & Tart is another great daytime scent.

  3. Thanks, Christina! I'm so glad to be back myself! I basically love everything VS. It's a horrible addiction.. I literally have over $500 worth of VS bikinis alone. Ugh.
