FRESH 🌊 FRAGRANCE CAPSULE
This is a good starting point ifyou’re looking into getting a fresh/clean perfume. My favorites tend to lean more aquatic, citrus and crisp floral! Let me know what your favorites are in the comments! 🥰 LAKE & SKYE - 11 11 Eau de Parfum One of my favorite perfumes of all time, of any type! You will never smell anything else quite like it. It’s aquatic and smells like the warm, mineral, salty air that lingers on a beach at sunset, after the hottest day of the year. It’s a magical and unique skin scent. DIOR - Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet Eau de Toilette is my favorite of all the Miss Diors and it smells like young, white flower petals. Kind of like a breeze blowing through a flower shop but not like the actual flowers. The floral is soooo well blended out, young and sparkling. Lovely in spring. Maison Margiela - REPLICA Under the Lemon Trees Eau de Toilette Italian summer in a bottle. Coastal, sweet citrus that’s layered with vanilla musk. A sophisticated lemon fragrance with a very tidy composition. Gorgeous on a summer evening. VERSACE - Dylan Blue Pour Femme Eau de Parfum Definitely the “heaviest” fresh fragrance I own. An aquatic and patchouli powerhouse. Profound and sensual with nice projection. It also has a bit of everything else in it but it is so well-rounded and creamy. This is my signature summer scent. DOLCE&GABBANA - 3 L’imperatrice Eau de Toilette Probably the lightest fresh perfume I own. It’s fruity but not “young”. Its a sparkling summer-fruit scent that also smells clean and soap-y to me. Like you took a shower in sparkling watermelon water. Could wear this all year during the day. Maison Margiela - ’REPLICA’ Sailing Day Smells EXACTLY like the name suggests. It’s aquatic, with a perfect balance of salty breeze and marine. Smells like ocean air but also like its layered with warm sunshine. Wear all year during the day - get loads of compliments. ISSEY MIYAKE - L'eau D'issey Eau de Toilette A more mature scent for sure but I love it, it’s quite unique. Very synthetic and sometimes so fresh that it almost feels cold. It’s super airy and energizing. Definitely wear in the summer. The winter cold would just eat up the tiny molecules that this is made of and it wouldn’t last. DOLCE&GABBANA - Light Blue Eau Intense So feminine and delightful. It has citrus and apple and can be cutting but also super feminine and laid-back. It’s an olfactory adventure and a huge improvement on the already lovely original. Wear any time. GUCCI - Flora by Gucci Eau de Parfum The strongest floral fresh scent I own. The floral in here is bold and present but it’s also crisp. Not a sticky or rose-y kind of floral but a brighter one. Good to wear any time but lovely on spring nights out!

Why I NEVER buy full-size Perfumes 🤫
I never buy a full-size bottle of perfume because well...MATH! ➕➖✖️➗ It doesn’t take much to figure out why 100 ml perfume bottles just don’t make sense: perfume has a life of approx. 30 months. That’s 912 days which, to me, sounds pretty generous considering perfume is made of ethanols that evaporate 📆 yes, even "eau de parfums"... every spray is approx 0.1 ML of perfume 🧪 Therefore every 100 ml bottle of perfume has 1000 sprays in it. Assuming you use the same perfume all year at a rate of 1 spray/day you’re always buying more perfume than you can possibly consume by expiry from the moment you purchase the bottle = 1000 sprays > 912 days. SO, 100 ml perfume bottles are a waste even in the most “clinical” scenario that is not realistic. In a more realistic scenario, where you wear different perfumes depending on the day - it’s actually more waste! Consider that you don’t know how long your bottle has been sitting on the shelf for before you buy it. It likely had even less than 912 days of potent parfum left! You’re not buying and using just 1 perfume for 912 days either...You alternate between winter and summer scents, sample perfumes, body sprays, gifts from friends/family etc. You’re also not wearing perfume every single day even if you’re her majesty 👑. You don’t wear it when you’re sick, hungover, when you’re just eating cereal in your jamjams, when you forget etc. Because you’re not using the same perfume nor using it every day, the ratio is even higher than 1000>912! You’re buying WAY more product than you could ever use before it starts to smell "off". Once it starts to turn, what’s the point of wearing off-smelling perfume? Because that’s reality for me, I buy 30 ml of any perfume AT MOST! That’s 300 sprays which makes sure I have fresh, potent perfume whenever I feel like wearing it and the money to buy other things in my pocket, where it belongs 😉 and thats on QUALITY > QUANTITY.

My Mental Wellness Improved Through My Self AcceptanceWhen I was around 13 or 14 years old, I remember routinely taking one of my older sister’s black eyeliner pencils before school every morning. I’d arrive early so that I could slip away to the girl’s bathroom to apply a single black line to my eyelids. My parents didn’t allow me to wear any makeup at the time. Although this smudgy line on my eyelids didn’t make me look all that much different, I never felt comfortable at school without it. My teenage mind convinced myself that I needed some sort of cosmetic symbol in order to appropriately express my femininity. Up until that point in my life, society had told girls that looked like me - tall, Black, and with kinky hair - that we somehow weren’t as beautiful as the other girls. For far too long, I believed it too.Feb. 17
