My Summer Scent
Hey guys and girls!! It’s been an exhausting few weeks, I’ve been applying to get my degree done and replying to emails [exciting news are coming!], and so on so I haven’t had much time to write here but today I finally found the time to take a seat and write to you about something I really, really love. My summer scent.
I have this thing for good smelling people. Whenever someone passes by and leaves an amazing smell behind, I’m always compelled to go after them and say “Please, don’t go! You smell too good to go!”. Of course I’m too shy to actually do this, but it’s really something that I love.
This perfume was given to me a few years ago, and from the first time I smelled it, I’ve loved it but I’ve left it empty on the shelf for a few years. Okay it was mainly because I was on my scent-slut years and I wanted to try everything that was on the market, but yeah, it just stood there, empty.
My Mom gave me this perfume on my birthday, which is in May, and I took it as an advise to stop the hunt. It was like when you have an amazing ex-boyfriend but suddenly get cold feet and your mind starts looping that there might be something better out there and you break up with him just to realise that all the other guys you meet are just full of crap, and you end up eating an whole bucket of ice cream alone at night thinking of him but still hopping you’ll find something better and then you text him and then you pass out ice-cream-drunk. You’ve always meant to be together, but you were too afraid of losing something better.
That’s kinda what happened with me and this perfume. Now that I made my peace with our past we’re having an amazing ride together.
It’s the Lacoste’s Touch of Pink! I love the smell because it’s a little bit girly and sweet without being too sugary or powdery at all, and at the same time it fades on a spicy/sweet musky floral scent that it’s perfect for the everyday life.
I have a spicy ( is it spicy? I think it is) kind of smell, so most of the perfumes I’ve tried only made me smell like a 50’s grandma (not in a good way), or like I’ve spilled a honey pot on top of me. And that’s why I like this perfume, it makes me feel spicy in a hot way not like in a “God, I need to shower or I’ll barf” way, on the contrary of other perfumes out there.
Although I love the smell (especially when applied directly on my skin, which I rarely do), I find that it fades too quickly leaving something that I found essential on a perfume behind: a remarkable and memorable scent from the moment you spray it until you take a bath. It just fades too quickly.
And that’s why it’s already 1/4 spent. I find a little bit annoying having to spray it a few times a day, but that’s really the only way it would last.
Overall I give it a 4 out of 5, which is pretty great actually. BUT (Oh God, why is that there always has to be a but?) someone told me that this perfume is going to be discontinued or it already has been? I don’t know. So it’s like I just found out that my former ex-boyfriend that stood on a shelf but know we’re getting back together is moving to China soon.
I guess my hunt for a perfume must continue. Do you have any ideas?? And pretty please do not suggest the Lacome’s La Vie Est Belle, I’ve tried it and needed to give it away to my little sis because it’s too damn sweet for me!! *cries in spanish*
Also, if you’re missing me go over my Twitter and say hi! Or stalk me on instagram, I don’t care! But if you’re really a creep and want to take a step forward add me on Snapchat! I’m @ellaivoire in all of them, so you won’t have a hard time finding me!
