spring scents


One of my favorite things about changing seasons is also changing up scents. Don't get me wrong, there are some scents that are year round for me {like my very favorite candle} but when it comes to perfume, I love switching to the lighter, more floral scents for spring and summer. Today, I wanted to share with you some of the scents that I am currently craving and that I own and currently use!

**Disclaimer: I am super sensitive when it comes to fragrance. I literally cannot walk into Bath and Body Works or Yankee Candle without my eyes watering, head hurting and sneezing! I have had luck with all of the scents I've mentioned and have not found them overpowering in the least!**

First, let's talk about my favorites that I am using right now. THIS perfume is hands down my favorite perfume ever. With notes of rose and jasmine, this light scent was made for the warmer months. Fun fact: this perfume was made for Audrey Hepburn and was only released to the public in 1996. So you know it must be fabulous!

You may remember me mentioning my diptyque "Baies" candle in THIS post a few months ago, and when my husband recently ordered me a new candle, he also got me THIS hand lotion that I was dying to try. I just started using it this week and I cannot get enough of it! I take it to work with me and I am constantly putting it on my hands. Not only does it smell amazing {think roses, blackcurrant and cedar} but it leaves my hands SO soft...all day long! 

Lastly, I got a sample of THIS Tory Burch perfume a couple of months ago and have been using it when I travel {I have a bad history when it comes to bottles breaking/exploding when traveling}. It's not an "in your face floral" but has more grapefruit and sandalwood qualities. It's still crisp and refreshing and I think good for someone who isn't all about the super floral and feminine scents. 

Now, on to a couple of things that are on my wish list! I have been eyeing THIS rose candle for a few months now {can you tell I am a little obsessed with roses lately?!} and just discovered that it's finally in stock at Nordstrom!  It's a limited edition so I should probably scoop it up fast! AERIN also makes perfume, makeup and other skin products. You can view more of their collection HERE. Be sure to check out THIS rose lip conditioner too -- doesn't it sound amazing?!

A spring scent collage wouldn't be complete without including some beautiful {and in this case, faux!} flowers! I am trying to decide between THIS larger magenta and THIS smaller pink faux peony arrangement for my office. What do you guys think?!

All these spring and summer scents would be great for Mother's Day too. It's right around the corner! 

Thanks for dropping by and stop back tomorrow for an exciting workout post! Have a wonderful Wednesday!

  10. Oh my gosh! Glad I'm not the only one who is super sensitive to scents! Certain perfumes do the same and make my stomach hurt. So glad these are Rachel approved! I will have to sniff Creed sometime...the bottle is adorable too!

  14. I have a few coworkers that are sensitive to smells as well, and I know how much that can suck! I haven't tried the new Tory Burch, but I might have to see if I can get my hands on a sample! I love her original scent!

  15. those peonies aren't real??? omg i NEED them! they're my fave flower.

  16. I'm such a candle and smell junkie too and love switching them out for the seasons. I just added that Diptyque one to my mix and am loving the fresh sent for spring. Hope you have a great weekend!
