I’m heading down the highway for a few days at the beach so I will be out of touch for a bit. My destination doesn’t offer much in the way of sniffing, so I’ll have to bring my own. But thinking of that long, often-monotonous drive, I wonder: What are the best scents for a summer road trip?
It needs to be a fragrance that works well in the enclosed space of a vehicle, is easygoing (for the passengers’ sakes) and makes you feel good – especially important if you’re the primary driver. And while we’re in vacation mode: What to pack in your purse or suitcase? Just in case you don’t have any good sniffing at your destination or you don’t find any souvenir scents along the way.
However, for my lovely, but perfume-pedestrian road trip, I’ve rounded up the refreshing Annick Goutal’s Hadrien and the slightly more exotic Nuits d’Hadrien, Kai, Calyx, Christian Dior’s Escale a Portofino, and perhaps something else that skews beachy.
I’m also debating bringing a dab of Carnal Flower for dining out in the evening. Tell me, all you brave souls — would it be a bit too much in the Florida heat and humidity? So many of you say it really blooms then, but I’m a little bit timid. 🙂
Anyway, what are your best fragrances for a road trip or any kind of travel?
P.S. Just noticed that one of my above-mentioned faves, Kai, is now available at Nordstrom (online at least, not sure about stores). Yay! And they have had Diptyque for quite some time now, so double yay!
