What’s That Smell?

While getting ready to go out on New Year’s Eve, I inadvertently put on two fragrances. I didn’t really think anything of it until we were at dinner. I smelled the most delicious scent, and it wasn’t the food. I thought it had to be the shirt I had on. I hadn’t worn it in almost a year and thought maybe I had some mystery perfume on it. Nope, the shirt smelled like a shirt. Then I realized it was the mix of the perfumes I had put on earlier. It was like being at the beach with my husband. Floral, yet musky…and absolutely perfect!
The first in this ultimate combination was Kate Walsh’s Boyfriend. I have this in a pulse point oil so I had rolled it on my neck and wrists. This is a musky blend of vanilla, amber and jasmine blossoms. It’s meant to smell like your perfume mixed with your boyfriend’s cologne. It’s become my every day winter fragrance. It’s a very warm smell.

Boyfriend by Kate Walsh $10-$65

The second in the duo is Jennifer Aniston. I have this in a spray so I spritzed myself all over. The debut fragrance by this style icon is a blend of citrus, rose water, jasmine, violet, lily, musk, amber, and sandalwood. It has many of the same notes as Boyfriend (perhaps that’s why they blended so well). It brings up memories of sunny days at the beach and warm summer nights. I love this in the summer.

These two fragrances work so well together. I do believe this will be my new, custom blended scent. But remember, fragrances do smell different on everyone due to our individual body chemistry. I always recommend trying out a perfume first to see how it wears during the day. Sometimes they change on me and it ends up not smelling as good at the end of the day. Sephora will make you a sample of any fragrance they carry, so try first!

    It’s true~ some perfumes smell so nice in the bottle, or on the ad, or on someone else- that is one of the many reasons I LOVE Sephora!
    I’ll try that Jennifer Anniston next.

    I LOVE the Jennifer Anniston perfume and lotion. I hope they continue to make the lotion. I’ll try the Boyfriend next time I go to Sephora. Thanks for the tip. It’s true that often scents blended together create something new and exciting. One of my daughters used to use the VS Pear lotion along with Clinque Happy and she always smelled so wonderful.
