Howdy, Posse folks! Every year about this time, I feel like I’ve had more than enough cold weather and I drift into getaway/vacation mode, preferably to somewhere warm, sunny and sandy. I’m not wrong to think that most of us (at least here in the Northern Hemisphere) have had our fill of Old Man Winter, especially you folks who have had snow, snow and yet MORE snow over the past few months!
So for me at least, I’m hanging on, week to week, waiting patiently for spring. So let’s take a mental vacation, why don’t we, and transport ourselves elsewhere in our minds via a little beach dreaming. What scents do you wear to conjure up a warm, sunny beach to help you plod through the often dreary, bone-chillingly cold days of February and March?
One fragrance that transports me to the beach of my choice is Kai. It’s not complicated, but that’s the beauty of it: its blend of white flowers, gardenia and green goodness just plain makes me feel good, warm and happy to be alive. Another scent that works along the same comforting lines is Guerlain’s Lys Soleia.
And of course, two obvious choices come to mind: Estee Lauder’s Bronze Goddess, and the aptly named Bobbi Brown Beach scent. Both broadcast their sunscreen vibe a good bit, but that’s all part of the fun and their appeal, right?
So please do share the fragrances that send you to your choice of sun, sand, and surf, and are helping you cope with winter. Or whatever else helps you keep your sanity until spring arrives.
