Admit it, you’ve bought something based on scent alone- we all have. I love the idea of leaving behind a slight, sweet trail whenever I hug someone or walk by which is always better than a full-on blast of perfume. Here are a few things that I think smell amazing enough to buy on scent alone (good thing they work well too.)
Philosophy’s wildly popular Pure Grace fragrance is now available in a moisturizing Buffing Body Wash. It’s a cleanser with tiny grains that exfoliate your skin so gently that you can use it daily. Pure Grace captures the smell of clean like just-washed cotton sheets, and soap and water, it’s the ultimate non-fragrance fragrance. Using it all over in a body wash leaves just enough of the scent behind so your skin smells fresh and clean all day long.
Hair absorbs and holds scents really well, I can usually tell what someone is using when I hug them or if they flip their hair near me. Styling products are the last thing we use on our hair so their scent will stay the longest. I not only love the light, whipped texture of S-Factor’s Spun Satin which can be used to style wet or dry hair, but the smell of it literally makes my mouth water. It’s sort of a less-than fruity scent with a hint of sweet something that reminds me of everything I loved the smell of when I was a kid.
There are so many multi-use products out there now, which is great news for both your wallet and bathroom counters. Sothys Soins Soleil Cellu-guard Iridescent Tanning Gel creates a luminous golden tan with SPF 8 and skin soothing ingredients to fight free-radical damage. It doesn’t smell anything like a self-tanner, in fact it smells like the beach. It has a little bit of a coconut, pineapple thing going on like a more delicate version of tanning oils with a smidgen of old school Banana Boat sunscreen scent. trust me, it sounds weird but it’s a combination that just works. Every time you smell your skin, you’ll be reminded of trips to the beach.
