My Favorite Summer Scents

I love testing out new perfumes...and not going to lie I have expensive taste. I love perfumes that are complex and last a long time. I have a few perfumes I use just in the fall/winter and some that rotate through the spring/summer. My favorite way to test out a new perfume is by buying a rollerball, I tend to always have one on me. If I really love a perfume, I'll take the plunge and buy a full size bottle. Today I'm sharing my three favorite scents for summer right now!

RALPH BY RALPH LAUREN

This was the first perfume I ever owned. It was a gift from my grandma and I wore it for about 7 years. It's bright, refreshing and young with floral notes. This fragrance is a combination of apple tree leaves, mandarin oranges, pink magnolia, freesias and musk. It's described as a colorful perfume with floral expression and it couldn't be more true! This scent is perfect for summer days! Definitely give this one a try this summer, trust me!

TORY BURCH BY TORY BURCH

This is the first perfume I transitioned to after using Ralph Lauren for so many years. It's similar because it is very floral (I like what I like, I guess). I liked it so much I immediately bought a bottle and used it all summer last year! This spring I bought myself a rollerball to carry in my purse. The best part about this perfume is it lasts forever! It's definitely a lingering scent and every time I put it on in public someone asks me what it is! This perfume has notes of peony, tuberose, cassis, grapefruit and sandalwood. This scent goes perfectly from day to night. Give this one a try!

FLEUR DE PARFUM BY CHLOE

My most recent obsession...Fleur de Parfum by Chloé. Notice how I also purchased a bottle. This will be my scent of the summer! It is elegant, yet sensual with fresh flower notes. This perfume is made with the heart of flowers where the scent is more concentrated including roses, verbena and cherry blossoms. This perfume is feminine and just lovely. It is pricey, but another perfume I'm constantly receiving compliments on. I seriously crave this scent and it's worth every penny.

Clarisonic Review

Clarisonic Review

I've always wanted a Clarisonic cleansing brush, but never wanted the big price tag it came with. During the Sephora VIB sale last month, I purchased a gift set that included the Clarisonic Mia 1 and the cleansing gel. for $129 (normally $148). I asked if you guys wanted a review of my experience on Instagram and you guys voted YES! So I made sure to document my experience. First up- my before pictures (big old stress zits, and all).
