What do you turn to when the heat is on, you’re tired of exploring new scents or you’re just not up to having to think about it? What are your go-to scents that smell good, and even better, make you feel good in the summertime, without being temperamental or demanding? For me, it’s Kai for the win.
Fragrantica gives Kai’s featured accords as white flowers and gardenia, and Surrender to Chance calls it “an intoxicating blend of gardenia and white exotic flowers that will transport you to your own tropical island.”
Although it has a celebrity following and sometimes gets pooh-poohed by perfumistas, it’s still a great scent to wear in hot weather, or cold weather, or any time you need an instant tropical escape. Not to mention it’s a great comfort scent for me, as I wore the oil throughout my son’s long hospitalization many years ago and somehow it just made me feel soothed and calm.
An added bonus: It has tons of ancillary products, from shower gels and body lotions, to candles, room sprays and even a deodorant (which I use sometimes on a day when I’m just hanging around the house and not out in public).
I’d love to hear what your go-to summer scent is! Have a great week, everyone!
