I have always found perfumes difficult to write about, but lately I have been finding myself milling around the fragrance sections of Sephora more and more, so I thought I would make a quick post of my all time favorites! Next time you are at Sephora, check some of these out, you won’t be disappointed I promise.
Notes: Lemon Verbena, Lotus Blossom, Water Musk.
A minimalist, sleek bottle design will always catch my attention, and boy was I happy when I found this unique scent from Commodity. All of their scents have a very straightforward name like Rain, and although that might seem pretty vague, it is actually a perfect description. This scent is more reserved than I typically go for, but it really does remind me of the way a garden smells the morning after a good rain. The floral scents are soft enough not to smell like an old folks home, but vibrant enough to feel fresh and youthful.
Notes: Tuberose, Oakwood, Bourbon Vanilla.
This is definitely the sexiest scent I own, and I only find myself wearing it out once the sun has set and I plan on drinking. Extremely warm and musky, this lasts very long on my skin and sticks in my hair, so I never have to reapply it. The notes of vanilla add a subtle sweetness to it that makes the deep scent more feminine and pleasant. The name of this scent is so perfect, because you really do feel like you should be sipping a glass of expensive bourbon when you’re wearing this.
Notes: Bergamot, Heliotrope, Coconut Milk.
This is one of my all time favorite scents to wear, especially in the summer and spring. There is nothing that makes me feel as close to laying on a warm beach as this scent, and if you love the ocean, you need this perfume. Bergamot has always been one of my favorite scent notes, and I usually love any perfume that features it heavily. The breeziness of the coconut milk comes through strongly, and it is the last scent that stays on the skin when this starts to fade. Something about Beach Walk makes me feel blonder, tanner, and just plain old easy-going.
Notes: Sicilian Citron, Bluebell, Granny Smith Apple, Jasmine Sambac, Bamboo, White Rose, Cedarwood, Amber, Musk.
This was my go-to scent all throughout high school, so any time I wear it, it feels like an old friend. This fragrance is a classic, and I can always tell when someone is wearing it, it is really that unique. It is a very fresh scent, I love wearing it to work because it lasts for hours without fading and is subtle enough not to overwhelm my coworkers.
Notes: Ambrette Seeds, Sea Salt, Sage.
This is the newest addition to my collection, and it is already becoming a fast favorite. If Beach Walk and Nirvana Bourbon fell in love and had a baby, it would be this perfume from Jo Malone. The wood sage brings a deeper musk while the sea salt lightens everything up and brings about images of the ocean. This is a hard scent to explain, because it feels both fresh and mature simultaneously.
Let me know your favorite scents of all time!
