The new scents of April
My, my, there sure are some gorgeous scents coming our way! That’s right, it’s a new month (soon), meaning there are a slew of new fragrances to fawn over and try out. And since we’re officially moving into the cooler seasons, it’s time to put away that summery spray you’ve been spritzing all the way from the beach to the bar and get your mitts on something more suitable for the chill.
Sit back, relax, and let your nose do the work!

Givenchy Mes Envies Irrésistibles EDT, 50mL, $112
