Parfums du Printemps

The flowers are blooming in my backyard, so the scents of spring are heavy on the breeze.  Aside from the natural fragrances of these backyard blossoms, around this time of year, I break out my Bobbi Brown brand "Beach" products full time.  I actually love all Bobbi Brown cosmetics and think the black and white packaging is very deco.  I use her bronzer every day--I think it's the only way I can wear colors like yellow without looking sallow.  It adds just a kiss of color to my pale skin, giving it a sort of 30s resort glow.  "Beach" just evokes warm weather, sand, sun, Hawaiian flowers.  Just my favourite.  Speaking of perfume, here are some gorgeous images from gatochy's flickr stream that caught my eye.  What's YOUR signature scent?

Hi Sweetie! I am doing a series next week and wanted to see if you would be interested in guest posting!

I am going to try to do a series next week, and thought maybe you could be the first post on Tuesday. The series will be My Favorite Vintage Places...you would tell me somewhere you have visited or want to visit that is vintage (1900's-1960's) and what is so special about it. I need some pics too. So excited! Can you do it? Kori

I don't know that I have a signature scent, yet. I do love Coco Mademoiselle by Chanel, though.

I still love White Shoulders-I love mostly gardenia scents.
