Lise Watier Bora Bora EdT, Dior Addict Shine EdT, Auric Blends ‘Love’ Perfume Oil, NUXE Huile Prodigieuse Dry Oil
There’s no reason why you have to smell like sweat or armpits on hot days like today. Besides your deodorant (here’s a good one, by the way), the perfect light fragrance will leave you smelling pretty all day long. Here are several that are tried and tested, regularly worn and loved by me.
Dior Addict Shine Eau de Toilette
I have been having a love affair with my bottle of Dior Addict Shine Eau de Toilette (around $75) since last summer. It’s a light floral with a hint of fruitiness. The fragrance’s notes include cedrat, gardenia, raspberry and cedar woods. I wear this most of the time, but it’s too bad it doesn’t last an entire work day.
In my own words: It’s like I just rolled around in a field of flowers without my allergies going haywire.
Auric Blends ‘Love’ Perfume Oil
Ahhh, Auric Blends ‘Love’ Perfume Oil (around US$7) was an unexpected gem of a fragrance I picked up near the Las Vegas airport. I don’t think it’s available in Canada though. It’s a blend of florals and light powder that blends well with my skin. Because it’s an oil, it lasts longer than an eau de toilette.
In my own words: This is how I ideally would smell like when I step out of the shower.
Lise Watier Bora Bora Eau de Toilette
We’ve encountered Bora Bora before, and now we’re kicking it up a few notches with Lise Watier Bora Bora Eau de Toilette ($50). My goodness, this is my fragrance crush this summer. It smells like a mix of florals and a piña colada. Notes include passion flower, jasmine, rose, amber, vanilla and wood-scented musk.
In my own words: Tropical beach vacation. I’d wear this one on the beach while reading cheesy chick lit and listening to Bob Marley. “Baby don’t worry about a thing… ’cause every little thing gonna be all right.”
NUXE Huile Prodigieuse Dry Oil
If you want a multi-tasking workhorse that you can use from head to toe, you need NUXE Huile Prodigieuse Dry Oil ($42 for 100 ml at Beautyphica). Like really, you can put this one on your face, hair, and body. Since it’s an oil, it also leaves your skin with a nice glow, but without being greasy. This one is heavier than the previous fragrances, but not heavy enough for the day in my opinion. It’s a complex one that’s hard to explain (sorry!). Trust me though; it really does smell good. Just read the bottom line below…
In my own words: I smell expensive.
