SWEET scents for summer

While the weather is over the top hot recently, summer scents in the city can be less than lovely.   Between the street (yuk) scents, and the mixed bag of not so fresh folks running around, one would think a light summer fragrance would be the answer.  Yet for some reason, many stick to the same scents from winter to summer,  which are overwhelming when walking by others or getting in the subway or a cab.  Which brings us to the point of sweet summer scents– and this time they’re not floral.

Sometimes a hint of something you love in a scent is all you need to get past the funk…   so we picked a batch of sweet scented useful things to wear lightly and surround yourself with –  with a hint of sweet as a theme.  Here are some favorites:

CAKE heavy cream intensive repair balm is a super hand creme that goes on easily, and has a scent that gives a hint vanilla or cream cheese frosting.   Made with 20% shea butter, olive oil and pomegranate extract, the formula is made for fixing rough dry hands almost immediately.   Perfect after a day out in the garden, easy to put in the bag and put on in the train or cab!

Be Delectable hand creme in strawberry & cream.   The fresh scent of berries with cream sounds (+ smells) heavenly, reminding us of strawberry ice cream.  This ultra nourishing cream contains shea butter, coconut oil, and aloe vera.  Put it in your bag and soften your hands anytime you need extra moisture + a fresh sweet scented moment.

How about a spritz of Lemon & Cream, delicious enough to refresh the hair + body.  Be Delectable hair + body mist is a light sweet scented fragrant mist that is less strong than typical fragrances.   Long lasting yet light on the nose, this formula is designed to keep you smelling fresh- especially in the summer.   Can be used both on body and hair, which is a perfect way to “freshen up” late afternoon on a hot day- especially before a date, without overlwhelming the environment.

Glow on!  sweet cream BRONZING body lotion  by Be Delectable.  We all know how the scent of bronzing lotions and tanners go, so this sweet scent is a bonus prize.   The sheer lightweight lotion is easy to apply and blend into skin, and gives a little extra sheen anytime of the year – especially in the summer months.  Bonus prize: this formula is moisturizing so it can be used instead of body lotion!

pucker up! put the sweet coconut LIPLUXE by Mizzi cosmetics for soft lips on the go.   This natural lip balm made with extra virgin and fractionated coconuts oils moisturizes chapped lips and has a natural sweet coconut scent of summer too.  Add a bit more on for a natural gloss effect.

Light It. Melt It. Massage It.” the surprise prize is destiny candle in Arousing chocolate mint.   This double duty soy candle has a jewelry prize inside, which is always a nice thing.  Better yet, it doubles as a natural warm body oil lotion!  so go ahead, put the calorie free candle on, then smooth the oil on the body for extra delicious hydration.
