There is something about a PERFECT summer fragrance. You know, the ones that are only for the summer and not to be worn any other time. I am sure this has happened to all of you… Sometimes when you smell a scent you get INSTANTLY transported to another time and then the feelings just flood over you, whatever they may be. Bobbi Brown Beach does that for me every time. It is the most chic suntan lotion scent I have ever sniffed in all my life. And it really isn’t just that boring suntan lotion smell at all really… it is the mixture of it all: the sand, the sun, the sea, the beach tote. I can almost feel the sand on my toes already.
As far as scents go, this one is absolutely the best on casual occasions for the summer fashionista. It is a light, clean, fresh scent that is so sexy. The notes include a blend of sand jasmine, sea spray, and mandarin. I promise you, as soon as you smell it you are going to forget what all is technically in it and say, “Yep. Smells like the beach.”
It is almost impossible to describe scents, especially ones like these. I can’t point out any top notes, mid notes or base notes. It all swirls together immediately. And I LOVE that it is an Eau de Parfum because those last for ages without fading away. I sprayed this on one day before going swimming with my husband in our pool and he was said, “You smell like my mom when I was younger, what lotion are you wearing?” NOT the weird mom smell, but the classy elegant mom smell. And OK… what is more pretty and comforting than the scent of your mom when you were a child?
You can get Bobbi Brown Beach on bobbibrown.com, Sephora, Nordstrom and many others. It comes in a few different sizes so definitely get the one that suits you best. If you can’t tell, I am obsessed and in love. Tell me in the comments below: what is your favorite summer fragrance and why!
