Scents for Summer- part one

Do you like to switch up scents for each season? Do  you switch from a rich winter perfume to a lighter scent for the summer months? Then you must read on. I have the best scents for summer broken down into two posts!

First, we look at Jo Malone’s Lotus Blossom & Water Lily, then onto Harajuku Lovers Sunshine Cuties and Kai Body Butter and Perfume.

I’ve long been a fan of Jo Malone’s amazing scents. Her perfumes are romantic and delicious and wonderful. I imagine wearers of Jo Malone scents to be elegant and classic kind of women who enjoy luxury. Now she is introducing her Lotus Blossom and Water Lily perfume and candle (from the Kohdo Wood Collection). If you love candles like I do, this is one you will want in your home. YUM.

Lotus Blossom & Water Lily is a combination of mandarin, lotus blossom, bamboo and aloeswood. It is light, understated and clean. I can’t get enough of it. Also part of the collection is  Dark Amber  & Ginger Lily which can be applied along with the Lotus Blossom & Water Lily. For more inforamtion please go here. You can shop by which scents you like and don’t forget, Mothers Day is quickly approaching. And I like Light Florals.

Can’t you just see these darling bottles in the room of a teenage girl? Or maybe in the bathroom of  a  mother of two who loves beauty products? From Harajuku Lovers comes this collection of perfumes called Sunshine Cuties. They include five perfumes, all different scents, all in little bottles, all fantastic!

Sunshine Cuties  include Lil’ Angel– with notes of Meyer Lemon (oh how I love Meyer Lemons!), Mandarin, Touch of Blackberry, Pink Rose, Vanilla Orchid, Tropical Sampaquita Blossom, Sugared Patchouli, Vanilla Bean, Skin Musk, Golden Amber. Love: Nectarine, Passion Fruit, Lemon Blossom, Plumeria, Osmanthus, Rose Petals, Vanilla Orchid, Coconut Water, Sensual Musk, Sandalwood.

 *Baby: Crisp Mandarin, Wet Neroli, Bright Sunflower, White Poppy, Living Valencia, Orange Flower, Jasmine Absolute, Soft Musk, Rich Vetiver, Creamy Birch Woods. Music: Juicy Pear, Granny Smith Apple, Dewy Freesia, Tiger Orchid, Jasmine Petals, Honeysuckle, Cashmere Woods, Creamy Musk, Precious Woods. “G”: Coconut Water, Mandarin, Bergamot, White Peach, Heliotrope, Exotic Tiare Flower, Orange Flower, Vanilla Bean, Tonka, Skin Musk, Creamy Sandalwood.

You can find these awesome perfumes at Sephora.  My favorite is *Baby!

Kai is amazing. This smells like a vacation in the tropics with a warm flowery breeze whispering over your skin.

I tried the rich, scented Kai body butter which deposits the dreamy fragrance in a way  that is not overwhelming, plus it softens skin. Simply put, I’m addicted. After my shower, I apply this butter and it instantly relaxes me. Kai Body Butter features a shea butter base blended with safflower seed oil, vitamins A, C, and E, aloe leaf extract, chamomile flower extract, cucumber fruit extract and apricot kernel oil. fragranced with the original kai perfume oil.

The perfume is a blend of white flowers and gardenias. If you’ve every smelled gardenias, you know these flowers are heavenly. I venture to guess there might be jasmine and honeysuckle in this magic perfume, its truly an incredible fragrance. Don’t be frightned of the floral description, erase from your mind the thought it might be the  heavy, cloying scent of a Boca Raton retiree wearing geranium colored lipstick. Its quite alluring. You can find more here. There are candles and oil, all kinds of neat Kai scented products for you to enjoy. Again, keep in mind for Mothers Day!
