Recently, my gals Tamar and Andrea and I were out at dinner (Sushi With My Girls, alas) and Andrea proceeded to blow my mind with a fragrance revelation she shared. See, it’s Andrea’s belief that certain scents (like vanilla and coconut) are PRIVATE and thus, should not be applied in vast amounts of perfume or even hand cream lest you offend your olfactory public. They should be kept close to your person. Read on…
This theory blew my mind. It’s TRUE. I feel assaulted when someone busts out a strong vanilla hand cream in line at Trader Joe’s. In the same vein wearing my vanilla-aroma’d Dior Hypnotic Poison (only in cold climes, of course) out on the town will almost always get me into trouble in a good way. Here, a fresh yet warm vanilla note that’ll pleasantly make its way into your atmosphere and surprise anyone who’s within deo-distance of you (and that shouldn’t be many people, save your subway commute).
Lady Speed Stick Fresh Infusions Antiperspirant & Deodorant in Enchanted Cherry Blossom‘s blend of cherry blossom (obv), freesia and vanilla delivers sweat protection even in my most brutal Core Fusion class while imparting a pleasant, light fragrance. The cherry blossom boasts a singularly southern appeal (pour yourself a BOURBON, doll) while the vanilla/freesia combo brings it to a savvy Northeast level. It’s REAL, but fresh and pretty.
Lady Speed Stick Fresh Infusions Antiperspirant & Deodorant in Enchanted Cherry Blossom retails for $3 and is available at drugstore.com.
