{Only Pick 1} Scent Edition.

It's the final post in my Only Pick 1 series, sharing a few scent favorites with you today. These are things I either A) continue to repurchase or B) have fallen so head over heels in love with that I'd commit to them and only them, for all time. That's true love friends.

Remember, I'd LOVE to see your all time faves so please feel to use this series anytime you want! 

Favorite Scents 2014

I'm someone who uses lotion, then a few sprays of body spray all over my clothes/hair then perfume on my wrists and neck. (Am I alone here?) I'm always told I smell good, so hopefully people aren't lying... Anyway, I'm on my 3rd bottle of this stuff. It's the perfect soft girly scent to accompany my perfumes. Sometimes I spray a little on myself after a shower too.

I almost didn't even smell this when I first visited the store earlier this year. I normally do NOT like rose scented anything. Something about this product, it just makes my showers feel luxurious. I love them smell and it's so softening and moisturizing! This will always have a home on my shower rack.

I first became familiar with this from Jaclyn Hill. She raved on and on about it. I immediately knew why, it was love at first smell. Dustin surprised me with it for my birthday and we both love it. It's now my go to date night perfume, so feminine and sexy! I save it for date night because it's not cheap. Dustin normally says my scents are "old lady like" so for him to love it too means it's a big win. Another weird love, rose and floral scents are never my picks. I'm either changing or these 2 products are just out of this world? Maybe a little bit of both....   

Rollerball | Victoria's Secret Sexy Little Things Noir (not online, fail) 
I always take a rollerball when I travel. It's much easier, takes up less space and a safer call over a bottle of my expensive perfume. This perfume fragrance from VS smells heavenly and it's always the one I grab for. Long lasting and it never disappoints.  



Leave it to me to run out mid series and toss it in the trash without thinking... Time for a B&BW run! Anyone else a fan of the body creams from Bath and Body? I am all about thicker lotions and these are great. This scent is another soft feminine smell that will never get old. 

I've learned something about myself today- I'm definitely all about the feminine scents and apparently I'm more a fan of floral-y than I thought... 

What is your #1 body product?
Do you travel with rollerballs too?

  2. I'm with you on the convenience of the rollerball! I always have one in my work bag and in my desk in case I need to go to a last-minute donor meeting or event.

  5. I really need to check out some rollerball perfumes! I've heard more about them lately and I like how they are a smaller amount, that way you can get a few different ones to alternate (I love variety)!

  6. I am ALL about the scents! I've been on a quest for a good rollerball lately so I might have to pick this one up. I'm currently lusting after the philosophy Love Sweet Love perfume!

  7. I adore rollerball perfumes - it just makes traveling with a perfume easy! My favorite one as of late is American Eagle's Vintage scent. It smells so dang good - a full size bottle is on my Christmas list. :) I love all your picks, and I really enjoyed this series - I'm definitely considering doing this on my blog in the very near future!

  13. I can't use perfumes due to my allergies but I'm all about the B&BW lotions! I actually used Pink Chiffon as my "wedding scent"... I used it the whole summer of my wedding so now whenever I smell it, it brings me back :) Love it!

  14. I'm a fan of muskier, woodsy scents...I guess I'm kind of manly that way? Haha!
    I have yet to discover my "signature scent" though, I wish I would!

  17. oh i love VS's spray, I think I have that one- every time I wear it people tell me I smell good, so maybe I should wear it more ;) Oh and I loved this series, I am definitely thinking of doing something similar (and crediting, of course!)

  24. I am a huge fan of rollerball perfumes! I keep one in my makeup bag and I put it on as I apply makeup. Otherwise I forget. Great picks!

  25. I haven't worn lotion or perfume in months/years! I was cleaning out a drawer yesterday and found 5 or 6 bottles of unused VS heavenly! I used to love that stuff ;)

    ReplyDelete
  26. I used to ADORE VS Sexy Little Things Noir when I worked there! B&BW Pink Chiffon is another nice, sweet scent (that still doesn't seem too *young* to me). Great picks. :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. I'm definitely the worst about remembering to wear perfurme. I used to work at B&BW and used to have a gazillion (not even kidding) body creams from there! They really are the best. I also have a date night scent that I wear, and it's the scent I wore for our wedding. xoxo

  28. Want to try that Lush product! I still haven’t purchased anything from there since it looks so overwhelming. Maybe I’ll start with this product!

    ReplyDelete
  29. mmm scents! I am clinique happy, channel chance and ready for this one? I still buy cool waters- like from the 90's! It's so classic and more people compliment that than the others! hahaha wow... Happy hump day girl!

  30. I typically use unscented lotion and then perfume/body spray. My husband gave me a bottle of my favorite perfume, and I tend to reserve it for special occasions. I don't love my current body spray, so I am so glad to have a recommendation. I'll have to check that out. You seriously always know the best stuff!!

  31. If only we could smell these through the computer screen! :) I love the Miss Dior Blooming Bouqet, it's so soft and pretty! I usually gravitate toward those types of scents - my go-to ones currently are: Chloe (it smells like roses, you'd hate it lol), Ralph Lauren Big Pony #2, DKNY Be Delicious and I love the Tory Burch fragrance!

  32. Love Pink Chiffon! I have purchased it several times. I also like their Dark Kiss, which is only available during their sales now.

    My signature scent is Coach Legacy. I usually get compliments when I wear it. I am in the market for a new perfume to switch it up though. I smelled that Miss Dior one in a magazine and loved it!

  33. I wear Guerlain L'Instant and so does my mother isn't that crazy? Once I started sneaking some of hers I was hooked. I also love the flowerbomb rollerball!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Just about anything VS and Bath and Body Works smell amazing! Great picks!
