Some of my favorite current fragrances..

Just some of the fragrances you may notice if you are around me..

Of course, girls have tons of perfumes, fragrances, soaps, shampoos, lotions, sprays, etc. I never was huge on wearing a ton of product, but there are just some things I never leave home without wearing. Like a good classic clean and crisp perfume.

Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue

This one is my all time fav. I have been wearing it for years now and always get compliments on it wherever I go. I could be in line at the grocery store or Target and someone will ask me what I'm wearing. It could be really anything that I have on, from the lotion on my feet to the moisturizer on my face..but I always share that it's Light Blue. In fact there have been some days when the only thing I put on might have been Light Blue..and I've still gotten the compliments. So it only makes sense..

"A stunning perfume, overwhelming and irresistible like the joy of living. Surprising and colored: the liveliness of Sicilian citron, the happiness of Granny Smith apple, the spontaneity of bluebells. Feminine and resolute: the intensity of jasmine, the freshness of bamboo, the charm of white rose. Deep and true: the character of cedarwood, the fullness of amber, the embrace of musk."

Sicilian Citron, Bluebell, Granny Smith Apple, Jasmine Sambac, Bamboo, White Rose, Cedarwood, Amber, Musk.
Deep and true."

Trivia: This was my "something blue" on my wedding day.

Covet by Sarah Jessica Parker Eau de Parfum Spray

"Launched by the design house of Sarah Jessica Parker in 2007, COVET is a women's fragrance that possesses a blend of Geranium leaves, Lemon, Honeysuckle, Chocolate, Lavender, Lemon, Amber, Musk, Teakwood

A stunning blend of fresh green notes, gorgeous florals and sensuous woods that instantly draws you in and won't let you go."

I wear this fragrance if I'm going somewhere at night. It definitely has a little sultry feel to it.

This little perfume .08 oz. is so handy! It's great to carry in a clutch if you're going somewhere and still want to carry a little more fragrance with you.

White Citrus fragrance mist by Bath & Body works

"* Fragrance Top Notes: Lemon Zest, Sparkling Grapefruit NP, Juicy Tangerine
* Fragrance Mid Notes: Mandarin NP, Ginger Flower, Waterlily, Apricot Nectar, Lily of the Valley, Freesia
* Fragrance Base Notes: Clean Woods, Sheer Musk (Captive)"

Not exactly a fragrance but it's still a good scent. I always carry a travel sized bottle of this with me during the spring/summer time. It's nice especially after coming back to the office after being outside in the mugginess. It's very fresh and crisp.

Now on to some other things that are not exactly fragrances but still smell great on my skin..

Tutti Dolci Apple Torta Creme Body Wash

"A daily taste of la dolce vita. Just a few drops of this luxurious Creme Body Wash will whip up a foam of sweet deliciousness. Sweet Almond Protein helps moisturize and soften... whild the scent evokes moments of indulgence in Apple Torta."

Body wash doesn't always have to be fancy, and this really isn't. I bought tons of these at a Bath & Body Works sale a while ago, so I am stocked up for a long time. I just love the smell and the way my skins feels after using it. It's very refreshing but comforting-it's definitely a favorite of mine this time of year, especially as we draw closer to fall. It takes me through the holidays too.

Green Tea and Cucumber Bath & Body Works body wash
"This fragrance blends fresh cucumber essence with natural green tea to create a therapeutic scent."

This is another favorite of mine from Bath & Body Works. I also stocked up on this one at the last big's so classic and clean smelling. It never gets old. It's more of a green tea scent than cucumber (never have been a fan of cucumbers), so it's really nice smelling.

Olive Body Scrub by the Body Shop
"Best if you want to: Reveal brighter, smoother skin with exfoliating crushed walnut shells and crushed olive stones in a creamy body scrub.

Best for: normal to dry skin
How it works:

* Community Trade organic olive oil conditions skin.
* Sunflower oil moisturizes and softens skin.
* Carrot oil and root extract replenish lost moisture and nourish skin.

The Body Shop® difference: Community Trade isn’t exclusive to the developing world. The moisturizing olive oil in our Olive range comes from an area in Italy that has produced olives since the Middle Ages. The Nuovo Cilento co-operative formed as a result of people abandoning the land to seek work elsewhere. In a remarkable story of success over adversity, the co-op has cut out the middle man to sell their organically produced olive oil directly, maximizing their profit and so preserving their traditional way of life. It’s another example of how Community Trade is helping a community and the environment."

This is great because not only is it good for your skin, it's also great for the environment. It's another one of those classic clean scents, and it's fun to use for some reason. Olive might turn some people off, but trust-this smells good.

So, what are you wearing?
