Posted by Kristin West on Mon, 06/25/2018 - 2:44 PM

Summer is upon us and its such a beautiful and dazzling time of year. This is the time people love to put away their heavier fragrances and wear fresher, brighter and more playful scents! There are a lot of amazing perfumes appropriate for this time of year but if you are of the mindset "the more the merrier", here are some affordable options so you can get a nice variety to wear this summer!

For the Gourmand Lover - Burberry Brit for Women

This is a DAZZLING fruity and bright fragrance. It's sheer, ethereal, playful and sweet. Perfect for those crisp afternoons. With Pear, Cedar and a touch of Lime this is a great scent for people who will miss the heavier gourmands that are so popular in fall and winter.

A Must Have- Dolce and Gabbana Light Blue

Light Blue took the world by storm when it was initially released and we still cannot get over it. Its crisp, fresh and bright with some beautiful layers going on that come alive as you wear this perfume.  With a touch of sunny-ness and subtle sweetness in the drydown that balances the opening, to the sharpness in the base, those simple layers make this really stand out from a lot of other fresh fragrances. It's become a classic and it's easy to smell why, so many people reach for this during the summer time. The tart opening from the green apple, to the sweetness of the rose and amber really cements this fragrance as a classic summertime essential.

Easy, Breezy, and Dreamy - Symetrie Dream

Crisp, fresh and bright this is a beautiful mix of citrus, florals, and daytime woods. Opening with a nice touch of Italian Lemon with Jasmine and Iris, it then dries down to a beautiful orange blossom and musk scent. After an hour the woods come to the party and you are left with a sheer and pretty scent that dances on your skin and is beautiful on cool summer afternoons! Dreamy indeed.

Effordless like Summer Wind - Elizabeth Arden Green Tea Cherry Blossom

Elizabeth Arden Green Tea is one of the most beloved tea fragrances on the market, and they are well known for their many successful and beautiful flankers to this gorgeous scent. Green Tea Cherry Blossom is one of the most perfect versions for summer. With Green Tea, Plum, Cherry Blossom and Petitgrain as some of the notes in this beauty, it would be easy to say this was crafted particularly for lovely summer afternoons.

Sweet, Playful, and Sporty- Eau de Lacoste L.12.12 Pour Elle Sparkling

Fresh, clean and, well, sparkling, Lacoste has created a beautiful concoction that is a mix of sporty, sweet, fun, and fresh. With Macaroon accord and cotton candy you might think this is a sweet candy perfume. BUT with some gorgeous lily of the valley, spices, musk and vetiver it really adds dimension and freshness to this fragrance. Its a youthful mix of sweet and fresh with notes that set this apart as a not-your-run-of-the-mill, super sweet, candy perfume. It has sparkle and depth, without losing any of its whimsy or charm.

Vera Wang For Men Cologne Review

Posted by Dimitri on Mon, 06/11/2018 - 2:46 PM

Arguably best known for her sublime bridal fashions, US designer Vera Wang pirouetted onto the world stage in 2002 with her first feminine perfume release, followed closely in 2004 with the masculine counterpart 'Vera Wang for Men'. A woody spicy fragrance, it succeeded in capturing hearts with its sophisticated and wildly seductive charm.

Vera Wang for Men opens with lip-smacking yuzu - a delicious Japanese citrus, which accompanies a leafy green accord for a brisk and shimmering flight. Moments later, a delectable heart of woods and spices unfurls: sweet nutmeg, pungent tobacco and smooth suede all climb over a trail of anise and precious sandalwood. Vera Wang for Men is (admittedly) the perfect scent for a groom or groomsmen and also for romantic nights out. It somehow stays warm and enveloping whilst remaining clean and transparent.

Lovers of Tom Ford’s signature scent Tom Ford for Men, or Dolce & Gabbana’s The One will appreciate all that Vera Wang for Men has to offer. Fresh, classy and refined, this is a skinscent that begs to be explored.
