Alyssa's post reminded me yesterday that, with spring finally approaching, it's time to switch out my heavy winter perfume for a lighter, fresher one.
My go-to for warmer weather is Rosabotanica from Balenciaga. It's got the staying power to hold up to sweat and heat, but it's not so strong that it's overpowering. I love rose as a note, but sometimes it can end up smelling either too "old ladyish" or too sweet. Yet somehow, this one adds in notes to make it just smell cool. Plus, I love that it's not a scent that everyone has, which makes me feel special whenever I wear it.
Also, not that this matters because you should wear fragrance for yourself, I wore it on all of my dates last summer and it got a lot of compliments. So, you know, just a friendly tip from me to you.
Rosabotanica by Balenciaga, $100 for 1.7oz, available at Sephora.
