You might have noticed a few new changes today on the little ole blog. Yes, it got an update. I wanted cleaner lines, easier reading, and larger photos. The top categories have also been culled into something easier to navigate: beauty, travel, and lifestyle. There’s also an easier way to sign up for my email newsletter. March’s newsletter is going out on Wednesday and you don’t want to miss it. It features a few things not mentioned on le blog. But back to the beauty at hand.
It’s no secret my love affair with the smell goods. Smell goods? Yes, it’s a Southern way of saying something that smells wonderful. In this case, it’s perfume. Years ago I had to hunt and hunt to find perfumes in roll-ons. It seems that every fragrance house just wanted you to buy the full-size bottle of fragrance. I don’t have a problem with that in some instances, but I would prefer to wear the scent before our perfume monogamous relationship begin. Thankfully, some of the perfume gods heard me and now you can find many scents in small servings that are perfect for experiencing the fragrance without committing.
I have been rotating these five roll-ons over the past few months. The fact that I can now travel with Beach is a blessing come true. Because of my belief that I can never have too many scents of distinction here are my current fave perfume roll-ons.
Elizabeth & James Nirvana Black. I usually don’t like celebrity scents. Look at any clearance bin and they are piling up. This one is the real deal and layers well with a few
Bobbi Brown Beach. Who doesn’t want to smell like the beach? For years I was hoping Bobbi would allow me to take one of my favorite scents with me at all times. Now I can. Plus, since I’ve been living like Frosty the Snowgirl this helps with my complaints.
Diptyque Philosykos. I also what to smell like I’m on the Greek isle Mykonos and this reminds me I need a return trip to one of my favorite islands.
Chantecaille Frangipane. Because I can never have too much of an intense vanilla scent. This one is so divine that I have to stop and smell myself.
Byredo Bal d’Afrique. I needed more black amber and cedarwood in my perfume arsenal and this hits on all my sensory needs.
