Pam’s Picks Beauty: Sweet Smell of Summer Fragrance

Hey Mamas,

Last night, I took a 15-minute walk, and felt the first signs of fall’s crisp air. Fall in New York, is magical, so I don’t mind the change of weather.

Even today’s soggy rain isn’t able to damper my mood.

But, for those who still want to cling to the summer, as the kiddos gear up for Back-to-School and breezy dresses hit the back of the closet, here are three scents that will at least keep you smelling like summer.

JAFRA Sweetie Pop – Summer Fragrance

 

Summer Fragrance Jafra Sweetie pop

 

 

Playful design and playful sweet scents are what JAFRA‘s Sweetie Pop fragrance is all about. Take a bite out of this carefree beach days-inspired scent infused with fruits and florals including red fruit granite, sweet rainbow sherbet and lychee rose. Ummm, smells youthful and delicious. I’m in!

Elizabeth Arden White Tea – Summer Fragrance

Summer Fragrance elizabeth arden white tea

Zen-out with the light, refreshing notes found in Elizabeth Arden White Tea. I think this scent is scent is mature, but not overpowering. It’s a blend of white tea extra, madras wood, ambrette seed absolute and a blend of tranquility musks. Basically, it spells like a fancy summer cottage on the beach, in the morning.

WELEDA Jadin de Vie Rose – Summer Fragrance

Summer Fragrance Weleda Jardin de vie rose

Nothing says summer like a basket of fresh flowers, and a glass of Rose! Gather thy rose buds while ye may, and then spray yourself to smell like roses with Weleda Jadin de Vie Rose. All scents from natural essential oils.

Lolita Lempicka launches Elle L’aime Fragrance

All great women have signature scents, like Nancy Regan with James Galann’s Galanos and Audrey Hepburn with Givenchy’s L’Interdit. I, too, have a commitment to Terry Mugler’s Angel. I began wearing it in my teens, though I know it’s more suitable for the mature, sophisticated set; then again, I’ve always had an old soul. As I actually got older, I’ve found myself wavering a bit, especially during the summers when the nose craves something softer. Well, now,I’ve found my signature summer scent in Lolita Lempicka’s Elle L’aime fragrance.

I’ll get to what the official top/bottom notes are, in a second. To me, it smells: captivating, luxurious and playful/soft sexy. (Soft sexy is Sophia Loren vs. Marilyn Monroe, or Eva Longoria vs. Kim Kardashian – no offense to the iconic Marilyn or fabulous Kim, but they put sexy in your face). Back to the perfume …

I would NEVER leave the house, or even my bedroom!, without a little spray, and of course mascara and lip gloss. If you want to be treated like a lady (think Nancy Regan, Audrey Hepburn, again) you need to take care of yourself like a lady.
For those with a nose for scent, here’s the 411: top notes of Bergamot, Neroli and Lime with a sparkling of Coco Essence, Jasmine and Ylang-Ylang, leading to a warm base of Vanilla, Myrrh and Sandalwood.

Begging this month and thru, at least, the holiday season, Neiman Marcus will have the exclusive on Lolita Lempicka’s Elle L’aime. (888.888.4757)
