Simple Scents

I love finding new perfumes to try and add to my list of favorites. I really only have a few that I love, but I went to Sephora over the weekend and was on the hunt for more that I liked. I found a few…which was great. They have so many to choose from there…and I love how you can smell the freshness of all of them virtually as soon as you walk in the door of the store.

It can be tough to find a great perfume since you don’t want anything overwhelming, but you do still want something that will leave you smelling fresh and not wear off too quickly. I get so bummed because I feel like all of my favorite perfumes get discontinued. I loved the Lilly Pulitzer scents and Vera Wang’s Preppy Princess, which are unfortunately no longer available. Thus…I have had to hunt for more. Since it can be hard to find the right balance, I thought I would share some of my favorites, old and new:

Chance by Chanel – this is a classic scent that smells feminine and fresh. The scent stays with you throughout the day and you really only need one spritz to stay fresh.

Live Colorfully by Kate Spade – I found this perfume over the summer and fell in love with it. It is playful without being too much. It smells a tiny bit on the floral side. I always am able to find this one at Nordstrom Rack at a great deal.

Rouge by Banana Republic – this is an inexpensive perfume that is elegant yet simple. At its price point, it’s not only a great deal but smells great.

Clean Warm Cotton – this is more of a splurge, but it truly lives up to its name. It smells so clean – like laundry fresh out of the dryer but even better.

Tocca Simone – this is meant to smell beachy and is a great scent for every day wear. This is one of the new ones I found at Sephora. At first, I wasn’t sure about it so I just bought the travel size and have been trying it out. I really love it and will definitely get the full sized bottle once the small one I have runs out!

Blue by Ralph Lauren – this is a classic scent that I’ve used forever. It is very light and clean. I would recommend it to anyone as it is so lovely and would smell great on anyone!

I love hearing recommendations – tell me your favorite perfumes so that I can try them out!
