The end of May is rushing toward us like a Japanese bullet train and in the blink of an eye we’ll be arriving at destination: Summer. With the end of school in sight for many, graduations, weddings,
vacations, and the like, it can be a busy time of year, when it seems we’re in such a whirl of activity that the days pass by in a blur. But sometimes it’s just nice to take a moment, stop and enjoy a little something that makes you happy, you know?
Now Clinique’s aptly named Happy may or may not do it for you, but I do know their Calyx puts me pretty close to the top of the world with its bright, bubbly, fruity green-ness. As does Aerin Lauder’s Mediterranean Honeysuckle for its seaside garden vibe. And for a sexy kind of happy (for me at least), it’s hard to beat Carnal Flower, or beautiful but somewhat less-sultry Serge Lutens Fleurs d’Citronnier. I’d throw SL’s Fleurs d’Oranger in there, too, but it’s dab o’ cumin does not play nice with my skin, so hope it can make someone else happy. 😉
There are probably quite a few more fragrances that take me to a happy place, but I can’t think of any more right now.
So what about you? What makes you a happy camper with just one sniff? Or what other things give you a pleasant pause and put a smile on your face? A hug from your significant other or little one? A cuddle with a beloved pet? Or a gorgeous sunrise or sunset? What makes you happy to stop and count your blessings?
