Spring Scents are Knocking at My Door

Which season excites you the most? I love the Christmas season, well, that’s not really a “season” per say so if I have to pick one, it has to be Spring. The colors the smells, it’s just exciting. To celebrate its arrival, I’ll be doing an on-going feature of some of my favorite scents that have come out recently that are really helping feel the season. Will you be picking any of these up for yourself?


FRUITS & PASSION Avocado Lip Balm ($5 @ from the Nourishing Collection – Mmm, I love me some avocado this time of year and this balm has all good things for lips like Shea Butter and 10% avocado oil.

Folies Neiges Eau de Toilette Spray
($75/1.7oz @ – this may have come out last fall but the timing is so fitting right now! It showcases citrus notes, imbued with fruity, refreshing accents of orange and mandarin.

Touch of Sparkle Cream Oil Body Wash
($6.99/16.9oz @ – I have just come to realize that I love the smell of the White Calla Blossom and this one is more than satisfying my desire. The name of the product makes it seem that it will leave behind some kind of shimmer or sparkle but I didn’t see any, which is probably better.

100% Soy Wax in Tin Candle
in Bloom ($12.50/5oz @ – if you really need to set the mood on a warm evening, light this one to disperse the smell of water lilies, fresh bamboo, jasmine, teak and pure lotus flower. So lush!
CARESS Velvet Bliss Beauty Bar ($9.99/4-pack @ drugstores nationwide or – soap scents are getting creative these days. How about this combination of Blackberry and Vanilla Essence?? Lather, rinse, repeat. Lather, rinse, repeat …

Choose from mango with the Mango Evasion group, peach with the Peach Obsession collection of products and our pick, the yummy pomme or Apple Illusion collection.

Imagine Foaming Bath ($22/16.9oz), Imagine Hand Soap ($16.50/16.9oz), Imagine Hand Cream ($16/10.1oz), Imagine Shower Gel ($12/6.7oz), Imagine Quenching Butter ($22/8.4oz), Imagine Apple Illusion Eau de Toilette ($34/1.6oz)

Not sure you want to make the commitment? Try their Apple Illusion Body Care Ritual for $9.95. It comes with a 1.3oz Shower Gel, 1.3oz Body Cream, .07oz Eau de Toilette all tucked inside a reusable pouch. These just smell so good, so we're making this a Best of Spring Beauty pick. Get 'em all @
