Whenever I’m shopping around for new fragrances for Spring/Summer, I look for fresh, flowery, and all-around playful scents for daytime picnics in the park and outdoor dining. At night, I like to build upon those smells and add a little more mystery – something a little muskier, woodsy and warm to match the warm summer nights. Smores around a bonfire and evenings at the lake house. But honestly, you don’t need a special occasion to treat yourself to your favorite scent – just dap some in the morning and make your WFH routine a little more bearable. Plus any of these scents will make a great Mother’s Day gift! Discover my favorite summer scents below.
