Neil Morris Fragrances: NMF Fragrances: Aegean
Two reasons why I love this. One, the description makes me want to dive into this fragrance, as a substitute for diving into the Aegean itself. Two, I discovered it at Takashimaya in New York, which is one of my favourite stops for fragrance shopping in the city. It's like a little oasis amidst the chaos of 5th Ave.
Punk and purse-sized, this rollerball gives you the freedom to apply and reapply fragrance as needed. Particularly handy if you are heading straight to a get-together post-play.
I know I like the taste of cucumbers, but some of the cucumber scented beauty products that I've smelled over the years just didn't capture that essence for me, so I put the concept of cucumber fragrances in the back of my mind. ... I know I like the taste of cucumbers, but some of the cucumber scented beauty products that I've smelled over the years just didn't capture that essence for me, so I put the concept of cucumber fragrances in the back of my mind. That is until now. I recently had the opportunity to try the limited edition Marc Jacobs Splash - Cucumber . I was so amazed at how fresh, clean and crisp it smelled - and actually reminded me of how I feel when I eat cucumbers (it's not an exact copy - but rather a really smart and modern scent influenced by the essence of Cucumber). The top notes are very light and refreshing - a watery cucumber and linden flower are what jumped out on my skin first. I got grassy notes as well which were subtle and blended well with the cucumber and flower notes. Perfect for warm spring and summer days. The dry down creates a very pretty, light woodiness which was not powdery or overbearing. It was uplifting and yet comforting at the same time. Since it's splash, this is not a very long lasting scent, but I found that it was great to apply in the morning, the afternoon for a pick up if I was able, and at the end of the day. It's so delightful I loved applying it anyway! If you are looking for something refreshing that is not a citrus or a fruity floral this is perfect. This can be worn on all occasions and will be just the scent you want when it gets super hot this summer and your sweeter, heavier perfumes get stifling. Another plus - the bottle is large enough that you can use it daily and really have it around for a long time. I used it 2-3 times a day for weeks and still have a large amount left in the bottle. You can also use this during the day by decanting some from the large bottle into an atomizer. Since this is a limited edition, I suggest getting a bottle (or two) for the soon-to-be-here warmer days ahead or for your tropical get aways!
I've mentioned before that I really do love beachy scents, especially if they smell something like suntan lotion. I also love drinks that smell like suntan lotion, too, but that's a different post that I might write up later! M...

I also love drinks that smell like suntan lotion, too, but that's a different post that I might write up later! My current summer scents are Bobbi Brown's Beach, Bond No. 9's Fire Island, and Monyette Paris. Love them all, and rotate them out every few days or so. As a quick sidenote, Fire Island seems to mix really well if you have to do a quick and/or unexpected self-tanner session. I don't know why, I just know it does. Okay, back to CB I Hate Perfume At the Beach 1966. The notes are listed as Coppertone (this makes me unreasonably happy), wet sand, seashell, driftwood and something called "boardwalk." These are blended with a new accord created just for this scent called "North Atlantic." This might be the very first scent I have ever purchased without actually smelling it.
Love this, it's cute and can fit in your bag
