DUSTED-SMELL EUPHORIA ROLL ON FRAGRANCE
Dusted is the FIRST terpene fragrance that marries the worlds of fine perfumery and healing oils. With its topical application, not only do you have the aromatic benefits of smelling good but there are added health benefits through hormone balancing aromatherapy and topical application.
Tuscany Lemon Essential Oil
As a recent adopter of essential oils, I’ve begun to love the varied effects the different fragrances have on my mood. I especially love lemon essential oil for an afternoon pick-me-up, when I’m tired or when I feel the need to relax. Juicy Chemistry’s Tuscany Lemon Essential Oil (they ship to the US) is cruelty-free and has no synthetic fragrances added to their bottle.
Lavender’s soothing floral fragrance is hands-down my favorite one around the house. I sometimes dried lavender flowers to my bedtime tea, and add them to my bath. But the best use of lavender is to tie it up in a six-inch square cheesecloth or an old pillow case, then keep it in your closet or drawer with your clothing. Your clothes smell delicious!
Coconut and orchid hair and body mist
A sweet lingering fragrance is just what we need as the temperatures rise. This hair and body mist from Sol de Janeiro is the right combination of tropical and floral with coconut cream and orchid, with just a touch of roasted praline.
Davidoff Cool Water
For those who love the ocean and those who like to keep their fair distance, Davidoff’s original Cool Water scent is a good pick. It’s a mild and refreshing fragrance that evokes a sense of swaying by the beach while still being strong enough to not fade away quickly. It’s for those with more of a penchant for masculine scents, but not going too overboard with it.
A more balanced fragrance that easily straddles the line between traditionally masculine and feminine scents, going with a combination of a bold, musky touch with sweeter notes of orange blossom and even nutmeg. For anyone who likes a fragrance that just smells good and doesn’t have to conform to one style or the other, this is a good staple to have!
