Springtime scents

Everybody wants to smell nice don't they, that's a given! But sometimes I think we can get stuck in a rut, using our favourite perfume or body spray over and over again when in reality a new season is the perfect opportunity to spice up your scent library and try something new.


I'll admit that I'm guilty of this, but recently I've been trying to change it up and have actually been swapping my regular perfume for a couple of different body sprays. So I thought I'd share with you my top three for Spring and I've got to say I have been really loving a body spray instead of a perfume and another plus is that they're always tonnes cheaper!
 Body fantasies perfume body spray
Now this is something I've had in the wardrobe for ages now but have only recently cracked out as I've seen lots of people doing posts on them which jogged my memory. The scent is Cherry Blossom and although I can't exactly say I know what that is, nor have I ever seen a cherry blossom tree, the scent to me is a cross between fruity and floral. What I also like about this is that it's scent is a bit stronger than your average body spray and I find this helps to keep it last longer throughout the day.
Layering lab body sprays*
The next body sprays I have are from a brand called Layering lab and I actually have three of these in the scents Cocoon, Oriental and Fresh. The reason I've listed all three as my top scents is because with these sprays you can actually layer them, so whilst you can just spray one and have that scent, you can also spray two on top of each other to create a whole new one which is a concept that I love!  The scent Fresh which is my favourite for Spring is a mixture of citrus, apple and peony which as I'm sure you can imagine is lush, but I also like to spray a bit of Oriental which has spice, berries and floral scents in it on top to create my perfect combo!
Charlie body spray
Now I know I'm really throwing it back with this one but it truly is an oldie but a goldie. Everyone who was anyone used to have a couple of these in their school bag and I seriously think these need to make a comeback. My favourite right now is Charlie Red which smells like a mixture of flowers and more spicy fruits, it's definitely the most musky of all the ones I've talked about. It lasts a decent amount of time on me and unlike the other two this one is in an aerosol can.

So these are my picks for some springtime scents if you wanted to shake things up a little bit and of course most body sprays don't last as long as perfumes, however they're really easy to top up so I think it's definitely worth it. I hope you enjoyed and as always, thanks for reading.

    1. Ah everyone used Charlie at school, and they made such good gifts too! I love the idea of the layering, especially if they smell just as nice on their own!

  15. I use mists and body sprays mostly and I always carry one with me to use during the day. I love floral and sweet scents for spring and summer.
