I’m off to Europe! Today I am flying into Manchester with my Dad and sisters for two weeks, and I am so beyond excited! I will be going to London, all over Scotland, and Dublin so I will be uploading lots of pictures and make up from all over the place. This is just a quick post to talk about something my sisters and I like to do before we travel anywhere.
Inspired by Kathleen Lights, I like to buy a rollerball of a new perfume right before a trip and wear it throughout my visit. That way when I wear it later in life, I can be brought back to Europe with my family! My memory is intensely triggered by scents, so I really love to have a distinct smell for a great trip. The twins decided to do it with me this time, so yesterday we headed over to Sephora and each picked out our Europe scent, here are our picks!
Notes: Dewy Daffodils, Peony, Rose, Garden Vines
Sarah picked a very fresh, floral scent. It smells youthful and light, but not too floral or sweet.
Notes: Blackberry, Grapefruit, Pear, Jasmine, Lychee, Blue Wisteria, White Woods, Musks, Coconut Water
Lily picked a classic scent from Marc Jacobs! I have a million little samples of this perfume and I love spraying it in my closet so my clothes have a lasting scent even when I’m not wearing perfume.
Notes: Mandarin, Grapefruit, Apple, Basil, Ozone, Cedarwood, Lavandin, Armoise, Amber, Haitian Vetiver, Gray Musk, Bourbon Vanilla
I picked this one because I have been dying to try a perfume from this new to me brand Commodity. I love the simple packaging and names of each scent. I chose Wool because it is very woodsy, but it also has those notes of vanilla and grapefruit. It is very sexy and mature, and it is about as close to a cologne as I can get without actually buying from the men’s section.
Let me know your favorite scents connected to memories!
