Do You Have A Spring Scent?

We have most of March to sit, plan, stay cozy, and of course, dream a little. I don’t mind March at all for that reason alone. A litle bit longer for big thinking and smaller plans and schedules. What do you say?

With that said, I was thinking the other day that I don’t really have a spring scent. It was somewhere between splashing rosewater on my inflamed skin, reading the label, “Makes for a natural perfume.” Then googled, because I couldn’t avoid the rabbit hole… and plenty of reviews agreed. Along with sounding off it’s benefits for acne and rosacea, it’s a good spring scent. I’m not sold on it for myself for spring. But overall, I’m unsure about most spring scents. I’d love to smell like flowers, but with my own favoritism towards oils…nothing has smelled particulary right.

My winter scent (and summer etc..) is Le Labo’s, Palo Santo. Which I’m currently giving a break so I can remember what it smells like once again. I’ve gotten so used to it! I’m on the hunt for testers, or maybe I’ll just stick to the natural vitamin e morning rub down and let that do it’s work?

Do you have a signature spring scent? I’d love to know.

    I love EveryDay oil anytime and every where. Amazing oils for washing and moisturizing and scent is beautiful. She has a website so you can read all about it.

    Luckyscent has a vast number of scents on their website and lets you order samples of almost everything for a few bucks each. I like to order a whole bunch at a time and try them out at home before I buy. Highly recommend if you don’t feel like going into a store to try them on (sometimes trying them in a store isn’t the same or there’s so many in the air it gets overpowering!)
    also second the everyday oil recommendation – if you like palo santo that may be right up your alley!

      Thank you so much! I think that’s the issue with going into perfume stores and trying to find a good one… i can get overwhelemd. Good to know there are two everyday oil recs! Definitely a oil person!

    i love march! the last days to get my self together before i want to spend every second outside and the returned daylight/sun you can actually feel – my favorite spring sensation πŸ™‚
    i made an EO spray with grapefruit a while ago that i really liked – refreshing but not overwhelming and you’ve just inspired me to try palo santo! Bought a concentrated EO in Ecuador last year and haven’t been sure what to make.
    ps. my skin was terribly inflamed in sept and this diy calendula mask was wonderful/the only thing that alleviated it. ‘recipe’ here:

      Hey Steph!

      I totally understand, and felt the call of spring all day today. And was sort of like, okay… wait… i need more me time in March. Ha! That sounds amazing! I’ve never thought of a spray with grapefruit. Will take a look at the mask as well.

    I like the Zoologist perfume line and Dragonfly is my go to for this in-between time…earthy, a little funky at first, and through the day changes to soft and floral. It’s supposed to mimic the lifecycle of a pond.
