Fresh Fragrances To Take You From Spring To Summer

I love switching up my fragrance each season!  I have been wearing soft florals for spring, but am now ready to dive into summer’s tropical and bright scents!

My new (for me) favorites is a beachy, light scent, and sweet and spicy perfume, a bright citrus scent and a summery scent for the man in your life:

philosophy pure grace summer ($48 for 2 oz) — pure grace summer is a limited-edition fragrance inspired by the spirit of a beautiful summer day. it’s a warm breeze on your face, a whisper in your ear, as it beckons you toward the sunshine. soak in its carefree warmth, as each ray of sunlight makes you feel pure, whole and new again. this is freedom. this is grace. because when your heart is filled with grace, every day feels like summer. The notes are Bergamot, Coconut Water, Citron Zest, Dune Rose, Cocoa Absolute, Solar Musk, Sandalwood, Vanilla.

What I think:  Every time I spritz this scent on, it transports me (mentally) to the beach!  You can really smell the coconut water, solar musk and citrusy notes.  It’s very light and fresh.  I will be wearing this all summer long.
