Your New Summer Fragrance FOUND!
Posted On May 20, 2016
The sweat-invoking weather of summer has us going after lighter and more refreshing beauty products. This can mean opting for a nude gloss in lieu of a bold lip color, or trading in your long locks for a short summer cut. And as it turns out, the same summer-swapping applies to fragrance.
Perfumes are the most personal part of our daily routines. We all have our own intimate reasons for choosing a particular scent. Maybe it’s your late grandmother’s vintage cologne or maybe it invokes certain memories. Despite your motive, there are many other reasons people wear perfumes, but ultimately it boils down to the fact that they make us happy.
More recently, consumers are opting for aromas of the greener, fresher side, and as the weather warms, we are stowing away our spiced winter scents to make space for something a little fresher. All of the intoxicating fragrances listed below give back in one way or another and definitely belong on your vanity.
Malibu Lemon Blossom Spray Perfume by Pacifica
This gluten-free baby is sure to brighten up any grey day with its crazy fresh scent. The captivating scent of Malibu Lemon Blossom by Pacifica is composed of Lemon Blossom, Litsea Cubeba, Angel’s Trumpet, fresh herbs, and salty sea breezes. This seaside potion, sold for $22, is also 100% vegan and cruelty-free.
Loving by Revelations Perfume
Cologne meets compassion with Revelations Perfume and Cosmetics’ newest product Loving. A delicate floral bouquet of roses and jasmine wrapped in a warm, sensual blanket of Indonesian patchouli, creamy amber, and ethically farmed vetiver formulates the natural remedy of Loving. Fresh nuances of Italian bergamot, green leaves, and mulberry offer freshness and longevity. Loving is naturally made and aged for 30 days, but it gets better – with a retail price of $100 for a 3.4 fl. oz. bottle of eau de parfum, 50 percent of sales benefit The National Children’s Cancer Society (NCCS).
Larry Couey, president and CEO of Revelations told New You, “Cancer is devastating to so many families it’s never easy to choose a charity to support. After a review of many dozens of cancer-related charities, we decided the mission of the NCCS was a good fit with our Loving perfume. Every child with cancer should have the opportunity for the best treatments available and the NCCS helps in so many ways.”
