Summer is right around the corner and I love the longer days, cute dresses, and the lighter scents. That’s right, summer is a great time to change things up by incorporating light, breezy fragrances for the relaxing days ahead.
There’s definitely a difference between the scents I like to wear in the fall and winter and those I gravitate towards during spring and summer — think more citrus, less spice.

I know people mention having a ‘signature scent’ but I think having a small rotation of your favorite fragrances is so much more fun. However, there are some scents that instantly remind me of someone — funny how some scents are imprinted in our minds. For instance, my mom wears Chanel Mademoiselle and it’s probably one of the scents I can pick out in a crowd.

I remember years ago working the bank teller counter and a customer approached and I instantly identified her perfume. That’s definitely one that will always stick with me and remind me of my beautiful mother.
