“Scent” sational

by

AHHHHHHH! Isn’t is amazing how a smell can literally take you back in time or evoke a certain feeling?!?  Well, let’s talk about how to get your husband to get that feeling all over again! The minute I want my husband to remember what it was like when we dated, all I have to do is pull out my coconut lime body spray and watch out – he is all over me!  {WINK} Bridget-Scentsational-Pinterest

 

So if you want him to remember that first kiss, or sexy vacation, try to remember what scent you were wearing.  Something fun to try is putting your perfume on unexpected places.  The back of your neck is always good because it gets in your hair and the minute you do that girly hair twirl or flip he can catch a whiff.  Another unexpected place is the back of your knees if you are wearing a dress.  Crazy I know, but the crease of your knees creates heat and that causes your scent to rise.

One great way to connect is to go perfume and cologne shopping together.  My husband I do this almost every year at Christmas time (kind of a tradition for us).  We sit at the perfume counter at a department store and we go crazy.  We smell everything and make sure we pick out the ones that we love, but the catch is that we keep a few to choose from and we don’t give away the one we love the most (on the other person) because that is the one we give each other for Christmas that year!

Luckily, I was able to round up most of the divas to collaborate with me on this post so you get to hear first hand what perfume the Divas are wearing for their men…and why! Stick around and you just might find a new scent today!  Here we go!!

My husband went on a “Guyz Weekend ” trip a few years ago and returned with a present for me…Dolce & Gabbana perfume!  It’s called “Light Blue” and he LOVES it…which means I try to wear it as much as possible! :)  It’s very fresh smelling…not too heavy!   – Love, Tara
Below is my “secret weapon”!  We all know that we aren’t smelling AMAZING every single night when we crawl into bed, right!?!  Sure, you showered that morning, but since then have been running yourself ragged!  I make sure to put on some of this lotion (PINK by Victoria’s Secret –  $12) on my arms, legs, and a tiny bit on my neck before snuggling up to my man.  Ladies, it’s a winner!  I’m telling ya!  – Love, Tara
I love Pure Seduction ($9.50 a steal at Victoria’s Secret) because it’s a softer sweeter smell…almost like my husband wants to eat me, which happens to work out wonderfully, because I can’t stand perfumes that are too strong or chemical smelling, or the ones that border on masculine.  Soft and delicious all the way!  – Love, Kiirsten
Another glimpse at that AWESOME perfume!!
I love the perfume, Ralph, by Ralph Lauren (runs $35-50).  It has a simple, yet sweet fragrance that lasts through the day. It’s my hubby’s FAVE! – Love, Corie
For an everyday smell, I really like how fresh and clean Victoria’s Secret’s PINK “Fresh and Clean” ($12) smells.  – Love, Kristen
For date nights or whenever I am around the hubby, I ALWAYS let him pick out my perfume, since he is the one that has to like it and smell it on me. :) Plus he has great taste, so I am never disappointed.  His choice this year is Armani Code ($35-78).  – Love, Kristen
I am allergic to perfume, and used to get horrible headaches!  So now I wear body sprays and lotions. My normal day to day is MK Red Tea & Fig. The Beauty of nature. The wisdom of ancient tradition.  The power of products that can transform an everyday experience into an extraordinary one. I got it off of Mary Kay’s website, but I could not have described it better myself.  The Deo body spritzer freshens and deodorizes your skin.  Red Tea & Fig cleanses with macadamia nut, raspberry seeds and kiwi seeds, lightly sweetened with fig notes.  Lastly, I love the light lotion, it is nutrient-rich mix of botanicals, emollient sunflower oil, rich in nutrients, and vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant.  Needless to say I have said goodbye to my headaches and my man loves the new smell.  – Love, Charlene
I am a perfume junkie, but these are my favorites by far.  I love the Victoria’s Secret line (or I am obsessed with it).  These two are just body sprays, Pink Sheer Fragrance Mist ($20) and Dream Angels, Desire Angel Mist $22), they are lighter in smell.  I will generally use these during the day because they are cheaper, but still smell scrumptious.  The only lotions that I use are from Victoria’s Secret – my favorite is Love Spell.  – Love, Kari
On the higher end perfumes – these are my top favorites. Cool Water has been my fav for over a decade. What I love about it, is that it is a very clean scent and it will adapt to whatever lotion I am wearing.  It’s not overbearing, but it’s strong enough to have staying power.  The plus side is you can find this one cheaper at TJMaxx or even Walmart.  The Estee Lauder Pleasures Exotic is my new favorite find.  I have always loved the original pleasures scent, but the exotic is a stronger floral scent that I will wear in the evening time.  I wouldn’t recommend adding this scent on top of a scented lotion – it’s really a stand alone perfume.  The downside is you can’t really find this anywhere for cheaper.  I paid around $78 for a 3.4 fl oz at Macy’s.  -Love, Kari
I use many different perfumes and enjoy nice smells.  Brent and I always pick out new scents for each other around Christmas.  It is always fun to see what he picks out for me, as some have become my favorites, while other I only wear because he likes it.  This was the first scent he picked out for me after we got married (Marc Jacobs Daisy $32-75) and I love it.  Plus it comes with a glitter lotion that I use all the time.  My hubby knows me and I think of him everyday when I put it on.  It is one thing we enjoy doing for each other every year.  – Love, Lisa P.
Cool Water – My hubby’s absolute fav!  – Love, Wendy
Refuge – Yummy and super cheap at Charlotte Russe $10!  – Love, Wendy
DKNY- Be Delicious – One of my faves!  – Love, Wendy
Versace- Another one of my hubby’s favs!  – Love, Wendy
I love anything that smells like you could eat it!  So anything fruity or anything that smells like baked goods is right up my alley.  I love, love, love anything with coconut (that is my hubby’s favorite)!  I also have to say try the Jessica Simpson Dessert line.  It’s definitely mostly for the bedroom, but I love it!!!!!  I can’t tell you enough how great it is!  What I am wearing right now is Bath and Body Works Coconut Lime Verbena, Burberry Brit perfume ( runs about $50-80), and Jessica Simpson Dessert Banana Split   -Love, Bridget
I love perfume! Unfortunately, I haven’t played around a lot to really know many of them, but I do LOVE Very Sexy by Victoria’s Secret.  My husband, Dom, is a big fan, especially of their more fruity smells, but I have to like it, too!  So this one we both like :)  – Love, Lisa M.
Wow!  That was a lot of fun!  I can’t wait to go and try out some new things!  It is pretty clear Victoria’s Secret is a fave for a LOT of the divas!  If you want to try something fun, fresh, and new head over here. If you want some Pure Seduction, and really who doesn’t?  Make your way right over here.  To get “very sexy” tonight go here.  If you want to be the angel of your man’s dreams look here. You can get your antioxidant fix with Red Tea and Fig if you stop over here . If you are ready for some dessert don’t miss this. If you are looking for anything else we mentioned above, or you just want to browse to find your own scent, try heading this way.  Perfume is not for everybody, but hopefully we found something to help you get smelling amazing tonight!

    I didn't realize it, but you really can get them to go crazy over your scent. I don't normally wear perfume, but I ordered some samples from esty and when I put on "My Secret Crush" he literally could not keep his hands off, and kept kissing my neck to the side I had put it. the best part is the price! it was 5 dollars for 5 items, 3 of which you get to pick the scent (the soap samples she picks are great too, clean v. 2 he likes to wash with)

    @WEFA – Thank you for sharing that with us! So glad to hear that your hubby went crazy over your new scent. I'm going to have to check out that etsy shop!

    I use to be allergic to perfume as well, so I never wore any. No lotions, not even scented soap. So I never really had a smell. I didn't realize how important it was. One of mine and my now husband's first date, was at the mall, and he casually picked out a perfume for me, that he was crazy about, and said he would like me to try. It was cheap, and didn't irritate my allergies. SO GLAD IT MADE IT ON YOUR LIST! Refuge from Charlotte Russe. Anyway, my point is, whenever I want my husband to make a move I just spray a dab and get close. It never fails, he always melts all over me : ) When he is deployed I spray it on his letters, and mail him my not quite finished bottles so he can spray his blankets with it.

    This was a great post thanks for sharing! Sorry if my comment was so long, this post just hit a sentimental note for me.

    I’d love to know which organic or all natural perfumes y’all love!

    I know this thread is quite old but in response to Jen’s question-Dr. Bronner’s products have really expandned beyond just soap. The line now includes lovely conditioners (no shampoos as the line is organic and natural), yummy smelling lotions, and I think a few body sprays. I’ve only ever used their liquid soaps (which last nearly FOREVER) but I’ve never had a bad experience yet. My skin is very sensitive to scented products so finding unscented or lightly scented items that are compatible with my skin is a challenge. Try layering different scents on (shampoo/conditioner, bodywash, lotion, perfume) to create a scent both you and DH love-mine loves fruity smells while I lean towards the florals

    I love Refuge by Charlotte Russe as well. Most perfumes give me terrible headaches and this one doesn’t. I would reccomend this perfume to anyone with allergies who would really love to wear perfume. Especially because it’s so cheap and won’t hurt your pocketbook if it ends up not working out. The other Charlotte Russe perfumes do still give me a headache though… it’s just Refuge that I love.
