Spring/Summer Scents

Officially 2 days until i'm done with my freshman year of college!
I can't even begin to tell you how quickly it flew by. I'm ending the year by cramming for finals, saying goodbye to the girls and packing my stuff up. As i cleaned out my makeup bag, i noticed i was running low on Versace: Bright Crystal. I'm very picky about perfume; An old woman walking by smelling like she bathed in Chanel No. 5 is one of my biggest pet peeves. I love light fragrances and scents you can wear all day without being overbearing. Spring cleaning is the perfect excuse to refresh your wardrobe, makeup & perfume, so whiff these spotlighted scents when looking for your next fragrance.

Ralph Lauren Always Yours is very sexy with a floral theme.
This scent is perfect for spring, made up of freesia, ginger, white violet and oakmoss. I love perfumes that don't overwhelm, and this is especially light and sensual. RL has a wide variety of scents, but this has to be my favorite.

Michael Kors Suede is a warm scent that lasts all day. Inspired by clean, bare skin, the smell is created with orange flower, mandarin, water lilly, gardenia and cashmere woods. It features a glamorous, feminine, clean vibe as opposed to anything too musky or sweet.

By far my favorite scent ever! D&G Light Blue is absolutely incredible. It's been an editor's pick on beauty columns and Sephora's website for months. The scent is made up of an intriuiging blend of granny smith apple, bluebells, jasmine, bamboo, and white rose. I love a statement making scent that doesn't hit you like a wall of bricks, and this is definitely it.

Versace was my last fragrance and definitely a winner.
The scent is very smooth and girly, so it was no where near overpowering. The fragrance is mixed with pomegranate, peony, magnolia, and lotus flower-inspired by Donatella Versace's favorite florals.

Vera Wang's Princess is a really playful, feminine scent. As opposed to florals and musks, this is mixed with vanilla, chiffon, amber & ripe pink guava. Most perfumes are very sweet and airy, so if you're looking for a different, sheer, flirty perfume that makes an impression, this is the one for you!
