It's one of those days where it's too hot for life. I just want to crawl into a dark hole and emerge when the weather is more comfortable. I can't stand being hot. There are those people out there that would rather be too warm but I'd rather be too cool. Now I hate winter as much as the next girl but I do love my blankie and snuggling up on the couch with my furnace of a husband and my kitty. Can't do that in the summer!
Know what else you can't do this time of year? Wear any kind of sexy perfume. Sure you can wear fruity or slightly floral but you can't wear the same ones you always wear, not unless it cools down at night. Not only will it make you and everyone around you want to gag but you'll probably sweat it all off before the morning is through. For that reason I'm a big body spray girl. I probably have 20+ sprays from Bath and Body Works, Calgon, Victoria's Secret and Avon.
I know what you're thinking...Avon? Yeah, I know. I'm not a huge fan of their makeup and their actual perfumes ALWAYS give me a headache but I love their body sprays because they are so light. These only stick around for a few hours so they are perfect if you're fickle like me or if you just need a boost to prevent knocking out those around you with your offensive odor.
Right now I'm loving Avon Naturals Strawberry & Guava spray. This post was originally supposed to be about the Gardenia version but I can't find that one the website and I'm afraid they might have discontinued it. If you have it savor it and if you want it I suggest hitting up ebay or makeupalley. If you're looking for something lighter and fruitier look no further. I own this one and it's about as sweet as they come without making you smell like a candy factory.
This one is subtle so it's not going to offend even the touchiest of sniffers and there are no harsh notes, just light and fruity. Seriously, you'll smell like a daquiri (in a good way, I promise).
If Strawberry & Guava is not your thing there are a few other options, all of them retail for $9 but as with other Avon products, there are usually great sales.
