Riley's Favorite Scents

Wednesday, July 10, 2013

Now that we're well into Summer I thought I'd share with you some wonderfully summery scents that I just adore!

None of these perfumes are new to the market but maybe you've never considered them before, so I'm here to encourage you to give them a try or at least a sniff.

I have loved Gwen Stefani ever since I heard No Doubt's Spiderwebs when I was five years old, dancing to it on my grandparents' deck. Haha. It was on one of those compilation albums like Now or something but for the life of me I can't remember which one. I did eventually buy the actual album Tragic Kingdom when I got a bit older like seven or something. It's still one of my favourite albums.

I mean who wouldn't be captivated by this, especially at age 5?

Anyway, I think Gwen Stefani (or whoever makes her scents) does an awesome job creating fresh, summery scents. Fragrances are very personal I know but these UGH are just absolutely fabulous and are not at all cloyingly sweet (I do only use one spritz, though).

L Eau de Parfum by L.A.M.B
This reminds me of this lily fairy cabbage patch doll I had when I was young. It also reminds me of the ocean. It's a beautiful fragrance. I have no idea how to describe/detect the various scents so here's a little description from now smell this “sparkling green freshness” and “leafy water hyacinth” (additional notes include freesia, pear, violet leaves, jasmine, rose, lily of the valley, sweet pea, orange blossom, frangipani blossom, peach skin, heliotrope and musk). 

Super G Eau d Toilette by Harajuku Lovers
This one is the only one I can see potentially being a little sweet for people. It's fruity and delicious smelling. Here's another description from now smell thisSuper G is a fruity floral; the notes include pineapple, mandarin, freesia, banana, musk, vanilla and raspberry.

Music Eau de Toilette by Harajuku Lovers
This is for sure my favourite of the bunch and it is the freshest. I use this the least because I love it so much. Does anyone else do that? Refrain from using/wearing something because you like it? Haha, crazy. Yet another description from now smell this: notes of clementine, pear, jasmine sambac, sweet pea, honeysuckle, vanilla, skin musk and sleek woods.

I bought L and Super G from either Winners, TJ Maxx, or Marshalls. You can find them all online, though, I believe. 

What are your favourite fragrances? Do you like fresh scents like me or something sweeter?

Now I am eager to get my hands on G of the Sea.
