I think that we can all agree that “omg, you smell so good!” is seriously the best compliment ever…and a major confidence booster! In light of that, I am always on the hunt for new perfumes and body mists that have a long lasting scent. In the summer, I gravitate towards something that is light and sweet. After many years of doing test trials with perfumes, mists and sprays, I have found my holy-grail scents that I cannot live without! Below I am going to be rounding up some of my favorites in order of least to most expensive.
At just $14.00 for an 8 fl oz mist, this is a deal that you simply cannot pass up! This sweet scent combines a blend of strawberries, lemon, honeysuckle and daisies that will leave you feeling super fresh after just a few sprays. It’s not overpowering in the slightest and the scent stays on your skin. I always pack a travel-sized bottle in my purse to spray on whenever I need to freshen up.
My twin sister is an avid Urban Outfitters shopper and loves to look around the beauty section of the store. A couple of years back we were testing out perfumes and came across this pistachio brûlée scent that I totally fell in love with! The perfume has notes of vanilla mouse, pistachio and vanilla bean resulting in the perfect combination of light and sweet. I love using this fragrance during the day when I go out for coffee or brunch and get compliments on it almost every time I wear it out.
Another Urban Outfitters favorite! The Sel Ocean scent is the epitome of summertime. The fragrance is a blend of honeysuckle, muguet and pink sea salt. This is my boyfriend’s favorite perfume and I always wear it when we go on dates and out to dinner. It is sophisticated yet fun and the scent last all night long. I even turned my roommate Emily onto it…it has become one of her new staples as well! This fragrance is my holy-grail scent that I can spritz on and I know it will be appropriate for all occasions.
As I’ve been getting older, I have found that investing in a high-end, quality fragrance is essential. I am head over heels for the Chloé Eau de Perfume because of the fresh, light and powder-like floral scent it has. It is by far my most mature perfume that I own, but because it is light, it is still appropriate for a young 20 year old woman to wear! I wear this scent when I go out for fancy dinners, on job interviews, or for formal sorority events. Because it is on the pricier side, I like to save it for special occasions only! A trick for preserving the original scent of the perfume is to keep it in the box that it came in and store it in a cool, dark area!
