I am pretty picky about wearing fragrances because I’m sensitive to smells. If a fragrance is too strong, I’ll get a headache that sticks with me for the rest of the day. I tend to gravitate more towards light and clean scents that are not too overwhelming. For my wedding, I had fallen in love with the Dior Blooming Bouquet, which is still one of my all-time favorites. It smells so feminine and sweet, and of course it will always remind me of that special day.
Recently I’ve also grown to love Jo Malone fragrances. My first favorite was Blackberry & Bay, but for the summer I have been wearing Nectarine Blossom & Honey, known to be “the scent of summer”. My favorite part: the two can be layered together to create a custom scent (See more Fragrance Combining on their website). As a side note, the gift wrapping above is complimentary as part of the Jo Malone experience. It is the perfect item for pampering yourself or giving as a gift (Mother’s Day is just around the corner!).
I also really love the new Lily of the Valley & Ivy, from their Rock the Ages Collection. It smells just like the Lilies of the Valley that surround my Grandma’s house each spring. I remember her always having a small bouquet next to the sink, which made the entire room smell so sweetly fresh.
What are your favorite scents for summer? Are you layering them to create a custom scent?
