Fresh and Light Fragrances For Summer

It has been so hot in Kansas City lately.  Yesterday was almost 105 — yikes! Today has cooled (?) down to the 90’s.  In this hot weather, I love to wear fresh and light fragrances.  Below are the ones I have been using and enjoying.

Cartier Baiser Vole

Cartier Baiser Vole ($69 USD 1 oz)  Cartier Baiser Vole is an Allure Best of Beauty Award Winner. An original creation from Cartier’s in-house perfumer, Baiser Volé, meaning ‘Stolen Kiss,’ is the expression of love according to Cartier. A story of pure passion told through a strikingly feminine and rare flower: the lily. Baiser Volé is a pure floral fragrance, reflecting all its perfection for the first time: fresh, floral and powdery.

I received a small sample of this in a gift with purchase.  I have been wearing it and I fear that my sample is almost out!  It is such a wonderful clean, light floral scent.  I would wear it every day if I could.

Purchase this at fine fragrance stores like Sephora.

Enjoy a new summer scent!
