My first perfumes were always those of Estēe Lauder. I collected the beautiful bottles too and always tended to love every sweet and light scent they came out with; Beautiful, White Linen, Knowing and finally I settled for Pleasures, a sweet, light and uplifting scent everyone always likes and compliments me on.I use perfumes to uplift me, and I may even spritz some on before going to bed. We all know by now how scents can boost our mood. It works for me and I rarely forget to “medicate” myself with it.
I like supple and lightly sweet clean scents. If you are like myself, I have some great picks for the coming season. It’s also good to change your scent once in a while because once you get used to it, you will no longer notice it and it will no longer uplift you.
It’s hard to pick a perfume for yourself and to give it away as a gift is even harder, but if you choose lighter more supple scents, you can’t go wrong.
After hunting around, I’ve found the following perfumes to be fresh, light, clean, subtle and beautiful. Perfumes that make you want to close your eyes and take a deep happy breath. These you can bet everyone on your “gift list” will love.
- Modern Muse Le Rouge by Estēe Lauder
- Baiser Volé Rose by Cartier
- Happy Heart by Clinique
- Dolce Floral Drops by Dolce&Gabbana
- Red Roses by Jo Malone.
- Glamorous Magnolia “Flora” by Gucci.
- “Si” by Giorgio Armani
Hope you like them too! Happy “self-gift giving”!
