Good Clean Scents

August 4th, 2010


Beat the summer heat with these refreshing notes.

Let's face it: the fragrance we wear affects our mood, who are friends will be and who they might not and sometimes they spark a romantic encounter.

I don't really wear fragrance all the time. Personally, I am a Caress Girl and I depend on this fresh, bar soap to get me through a good part of the day. I am extremely scent-sensitive and the slightest offenders set-off an unwelcome headache. I love clean, fresh natural scents, and whether it is a candle, detergent, soap or fragrance I invite these notes into my life to lift my spirits and produce a sense of "ahhh" rather than "ache".

Here are some favorite fresh, crisp, aromas- one with a zest of lemon- worthy of a sniff.
