when my mom started letting me wear perfume, i never liked anything she had [sorry mama] and would gravitate to those lighter bath & body sprays [cucumber melon, anyone?] until i couldn’t stand those either. if i had it my way, i would just rub myself with yankee candle's clean cotton car air fresheners all over myself and call it a day, but alas that would probably be weird [like that's stopped me before...]. so instead, over the years i’ve discovered that the fragrances i could handle best were those with hints of citrus. my favorite [and one i’m currently using] is sugar from fresh [i know i just said i didn’t like sweet smells, but hear me out]. sephora [dear, dear sephora that takes all my money] describes fresh's sugar as “a vibrant fragrance incorporates sparkling citrus notes with delicately sweet heart and lingering warm base notes”, and i say it smells fabulous - light, but lingers on your wrist/clothing without being overbearing [and i don't have to use the words "car air freshener" and "rubbed all over myself" when answering "what perfume are you wearing"].
what’s your favorite fragrance?
