Finding Your Summer Scent with B Fragranced
Finding your signature scent is already a task in itself. Finding your summer one can be one as well. One thing you need to keep in mind is when it's hotter outside is that perfumes smell stronger than they would during different times of the year. "Humidity and sweat agitate the fragrance molecules, causing them to evaporate rather than sticking to your skin." So instead of getting the Eau de Parfum opt for the Eau de Toilette. If the fragrance doesn't offer an eau de toilette, remember a little goes a long way; don't go overboard.
Go for Something Light
The last thing you want to do is show up to a party wearing a heavy floral perfume. During the summer go for citrus scented perfumes. B Fragranced's Embellish perfume one great option for the summer. It's an "indulgent, light fragrance." The apple and peach scent with a splash of citron make it a great summer evening scent. You can still stay classy and sophisticated while not clearing the room with an overbearing smell.
Try it Out for a Day
Spraying a perfume on yourself in the department store or Sephora won't let you know if you like the scent. Spray the fragrance on yourself and go about your day. If throughout the day the scent still smells appealing to you, then by all means, go back to the store and buy. Perfume works with your body, and sometimes one scent will smell differently on another person's body.
Something for the Day
If you're like me, you are a floral scent girl. I hate smelling like I just ate all the candy in the candy store. I tend to go for floral scented perfumes. B Fragranced's My Epiphany is by far my favorite between their two scents. Its fruity-floral scent is a mixture of mango, D'Anjou pear, pomelo, wild strawberry, lily of the valley, rose bud, freesia, neroli, warm musky vanilla, amber, and sandalwood base note.
Opting for the Lotion
Some fragrance lines offer a lotion that smells exactly like the perfume. I love going into Bath and Body Works and buying the whole line. Not only will you ensure your scent will last all day it's also nice to not have clashing fragrances because your lotion has a different fragrance than your perfume. If you get the lotion, remember not to get crazy when spraying the perfume. The good thing about B Fragranced Embellish perfume is that it comes with a lotion that is not strong in scent. If I know I'm going to be outside all day I usually only put the lotion on.
B Fragranced, a Chicago-based cosmetics company launched its brand [ME]™ in 2013. Marilyn Jones launched its first fragrance Embellish, a light and fresh fragrance for women, in the U.S. in 2014. Don't think the company forgot about you gentlemen. Their men's line, Essence of ME is the perfect blend of Bergamot, Precious Woods, and Musk scents. The great thing about their line is it's not crazy expensive like other perfume brands. You get a nice sized bottle for under $80.
