Friday Favorites: Fragrances

Floral Scents

Happy Friday S&S followers! Today I thought I would share a few of my favorite fragrances. I'm naturally attracted to flowery or powdery scents, which are perfect for summer nights. Chloe is my absolute favorite, and I frequently get compliments on it (thanks Laura for introducing me to Chloe in college!).  A few other favorites are listed below.

1. CREED Love in White: This particular scent will set you back a pretty penny, but it's great to give as a special gift for a special bride to wear on her wedding day. It's First Lady Michelle Obama's signature scent and the brand has a long history with royals and celebrities (Prince Rainier had wedding scent Fleurissimo commissioned by Henry Creed in 1956 for Grace Kelly). Definitely one to splurge on.
2. Chanel No. 5: I will never forget when my Aunt Kim gave me a bottle of Chanel No. 5 on one of my teen birthdays. She said "Every young woman should have a bottle of Chanel No. 5." She's right. Because of its long history, my boyfriend sometimes complains that it smells a bit like a grandma, but I still love spritzing on a dab when I'm feeling extra girly and fabulous.
3.  Chloe Eau de Parfum: Like I said, this is my personal favorite. It smells divine. Try it, you'll love it.
4. Prada Infusion d'Iris: This scent is flowery and fresh. Another great go-to for everything from a casual date night to a special wedding.

Feminine Bathroom 2

Now, most of the perfume bottles above are pretty enough to stand alone, but I love adding feminine touches to a dresser or vanity to give a little extra that even a word? Anyway, try adding some pretty silk flowers (or real ones if you have the patience to change them frequently!), a pretty tray or candle, and some room resfresher.
