Top 3 Spring Scents for Men & Women!

Hi My Loves!!!

A couple of weeks ago, we went to Sephora to get Jay his new cologne and we decided to have a sniffy wiffy around the perfume/cologne section of the store. I thought I would share with you our top 3 picks for Spring Scents for both men and women :)

I think when it comes to spring scents, I prefer the cleaner, more floral type perfume. I like to leave the really fruity, juicy scents for summer ;)

So here are my TOP 3 SPRING SCENTS!

(This goes by most favorite)

#1.  Juicy Couture Couture Couture 1.7oz $69 at Sephora

This just smells DIVINE to me. I love it so much and what I really love about it, is that it sticks with me all day and if you spray it on your jacket/scarf when you wear it, the next time you reach for that jacket, the scent will still be on there, just as delightful as the first spray!!! It's a slightly stronger scent with a sweetness that is just so amazing. A definite MUST HAVE for me!

Notes: Pink Grape Accord, Orange Flower, Mandarin, Plum, Honeysuckle, Jasmine, Sandalwood, Amber & Vanilla (YUM!!!!)

#2. Issey Miyake L'Eau d'Issey 1.6oz $69 at Sephora

This perfume is an oldie but a goodie for me. I used to wear this when I was still a late teenager. It's a very floral, soft, subtle and sweet scent and it's perfect for people who don't like something so overpowering. It still lasts well but isn't like..... "WHOA PERFUME HEAD!" It's so feminine and lovely. Reminds me of a beautiful English Garden.

Notes: Lotus, Freesia, Cyclamen, Rose Water, Fresh Peonies, Carnation, White Lilies, Precious Woods, Osmanthus, Tuberose, Amberseed & Musk

#3. pureDKNY 1.7oz $65 at Sephora

To me, this perfume is very clean, sophisticated, & floral with a slight sweetness. It reminds me of being on the water, wearing a fabulous Nautical outfit. It's again, a more subtle perfume but still makes you feel super luscious while wearing it. Perfect for work as it's not too overbearing.

Notes: Vanilla, Dew Drop Petal, Lotus Flower, Bulgarian Rose, Jasmine, Freesia, Lush Orchid, White Amber & Creamy Sandalwood


Now for Men's Cologne. These are both of our picks. Jay really isn't too bothered by cologne. He has his few that he likes and doesn't really stray too far from them, so here they are. 

#1. Hugo Boss Boss 1.7oz $53 at Sephora

This is my number one favorite cologne for men. If you watched my latest Friday Favorites & Fudgeroos  then you will know that I actually wear this myself occasionally. It's very sweet and I find it to be a beautiful scent that can be worn by both men and women. It has a different more manly smell on Jay, on me it's very sweet. It's a definate MUST HAVE for sure! I love this and have loved it since I was 13! BOMB DIGGITY DOG!

Notes: Apple, Bergamot, Cinnamon, Tagetes, Geranium, Clove, Cedarwood, Sandlawood, Vetiver & Olivewood 

#2. Issey Miyake L'Eau d'Issey Pour Homme 2.5oz $62 at Sephora

This is so yummy. Jay used to wear this a few years back and I absolutely loved on him. We both wore Issey Miyake actually, around the same time (how cute). It's a very subtle scent that is perfect for men (and their partners) who don't like that typical strong MAN cologne. It's just so delightful!

Notes: Verbana, Tangerine, Cypress, Yuzu Zest, Coriander, Clary Sage, Geranium, Bourbon, Blue Water Lily, Nutmeg, Saffron, Cinnamon Bark from Ceylon, Amber Tobacco, Vetiver, Sandalwood & Musk (Holy Crudmoli, that's a lot!!!)

#3. Yves Saint Laurent L'Homme 3.3oz $77 at Sephora

This cologne for me is an all around great MAN cologne. It's a masculine scent without being too strong or "old sleezy man" like. It's got a little spice to it, without being too much and a slight sweetness too. Jay wore this pretty much the entire year of 2011 up until it ran out about a month ago. A little goes a long way, it lasts a long time on the skin and it smells super sexy. One of Jay's faves for sure!! 

Notes: Bergamot, Cedar, Ozonic Notes, White Ginger, Basil Flower, White Pepper, Violet Leaves, Cedarwood, Haiti Vetiver & Tonka Bean 

So there's our Top 3 Scents for Men & Women. I hope this helped with your scent shopping for yourself or a loved one. This would also be a great Mother's Day/Father's Day gift guide idea too! OH YAH... I got your backs loves!!!
