Living here is so easy. Not in a material way - it's really a challenge to make a living here, but life itself is just different here. There's a different feeling in the air. Nothing seems to be impossible, everything seems so simple, people look happy here and I am too. One day is more beautiful than another. There's no need to worry about simple things, rather you learn to appreaciate small things. There's a sunrise and a sunset each day - how many of those do you decide to take a moment to see? Take time to appreciate what's already in front of you.

4 scents to try this Spring

Jo Malone Peony & Blush Suede Cologne blog review

Tory Burch Eau de Parfum opens with notes of grapefruit, pink pepper, currant buds and leaves, mandarin and neroli. The heart blooms with peony, tuberose, mimosa, jasmine, carrot seed and sweet alyssum, on a base composed of vetiver, cedar, sandalwood and white musk. Feminine and tomboy. Easy and polished. To me it smells just like a bouquet of peonies on a crispy spring day.

AERIN 'Waterlily Sun' Eau de Parfum top notes are bergamot and green notes; middle notes are water lily and jasmine; base note is musk. Very green, very clean, very aquatic. Refreshing and classy, just like Aerin Lauder herself. Delicate yet alluring waterlily and softly exotic jasmine sambac add layers of depth and intensity, warmed by sweetly inviting musk. The effect is bright, dewy and fresh. Aboslutely love the bottle and the packaging too!

Jo Malone London 'Peony & Blush Suede' Cologne features a charming mix of peonies, red apple, jasmine, rose and gillyflower, all mingling with a sensual blush suede. I've lost a count of how many bottles of perfume I had, but so far Peony & Blush Suede is the most stand out scent of all. There's just something different about it... It's fresh, yet quite heavy. The scent lingers throughout the day. It smells different on the skin than from the bottle. It's clean yet sensuous and daring. Just unique.

AERIN 'Evening Rose' Eau de Parfum is vibrant with contrast. Juicy Blackberry and rich Cognac unexpectedly blend with voluptuous Rose Centifolia and Bulgarian Rose Absolute in an intriguing, alluring elixir. Incense, sensuous and luxurious, imparts soft warmth, like a lingering memory of an unforgettable evening. With the first sniff it became one of my top scents of all time - and this is funny, but to me it smells like roses and bubblegum. It feels both grown up and classy yet quirky and fun.

Let me know what your top scents this spring are!
