Spring is in the air! Which scents remind you of this time of the year? I personally love the sweet smell of the first mow of the season, although last year, we went for the environmentally friendly #NoMow option, and I ended up losing my specs in the long grass and mowing over them! (but that’s another story…)
My own love of fragrances
My love of natural fragrances goes back to my childhood, playing dress-up, and spraying myself liberally and dramatically like a film star, with my Grandmother’s cut crystal glass atomiser perfume scent spray bottle.
And then my sister’s hippie boyfriend rocking up in wafts of patchouli oil, an aroma that if I catch it now, it’s a real Proustian moment, taking me back to my teenage years.
When it comes to fragrances now (the type you dab behind your ear, or gently to the inside of your elegant wrist) I can never make up my mind, so many thanks to Dolma vegan fragrances who have sent me a Discovery Box Set Of 12 Perfumes, both Vegan and Cruelty-Free to work my way through…
It can be tough deciding on a fragrance you like, especially when we are all so unique. Our skin type, moisture level and diet can apparently all play a role in how a fragrance interacts with our skin.
I’m slowly working my way through the twelve vegan perfumes, and have selected a couple of my favourites:
My selection from the 12 perfumes
I’m really loving the Sarabande, a romantic, soft floral scent of rose enhanced by the aromatic accents of geranium leaves on assertive wood notes of resinous cypress, earthy patchouli and soft amber. Perfect for a romantic night. (apparently, I’ll let you know how that goes!)
And my second selection is First Rain, a really beautiful scent, uplifting, with “this vegan perfume’s green balsamic notes of galbanum touched with whispers of jasmine, this earthy creation melds mind and nature.”
It’s a really ‘natural’ fragrance I enjoy wearing – would highly recommend!
So if you are looking to celebrate International Fragrance Day today, or Mother’s Day this weekend, do take a look at Dolma Fragrances – ? Vegan Perfumes and Colognes that have been around since 1982 ?No Parabens, Phthalates or Palm Oil.
