What do you think of Mimi’s new fragrance name?

The scents of summer!

Ever find a product that just looking at the packaging you know your going to love it? Well Pacifica is one of those products, when I first saw the products I fell in love with the bright colors and tropical floral prints adorning the bottles and boxes.

I was so excited to try this line the fruit and floral combos sounded perfect for spring and summer. I was able to try a sample of the Hawaiian Ruby Guava and its even better than I hoped. The scent is so fresh and clean and the guava fragrance is amazing it gives you the warm sunny feeling of soaking up the sun on a Hawaiian island.

I also got a chance to check out their perfume solids which I love for keeping in my purse. I chose the Malibu Lemon Blossom and being a huge beach junkie this scent was designed for me. It smells almost indescribably great its like the excitement you get in spring this scent just gives you a jolt.

If you looking for a little treat for yourself or something for your mom on Mother’s Day, Pacifica has tons of great scents and you can get them in everything from a candle to a spray perfume. For a great gift check out their gift sets and get more bang for your buck.

Ralph Lauren Summer Romance

If you are a fan of the classic Ralph Lauren Romance your sure to love the new Summer Romance. It takes the classic Romance scent and warms it up for summer with a beautiful bouquet of florals and fruit.  I just tried a sample of this fragrance and I’m really enjoying it. I love the passion fruit scent and the floral and musk notes keep the fragrance from smelling too young. My only issue is the scent seems to fade rather quickly. But overall it has a great tropical vibe that is perfect for summer.

It’s been a long winter, but that’s all the more reason to look forward to the scents of summer. Fall in love with Ralph Lauren Summer Romance, a captivating Fresh Fruity Floral that transports the senses. Fragrant warm breezes fill the air and awaken memories of a quintessential summer romance. Escape to the beach for a romantic sunset walk or picturesque picnic for two every time you wear it. Summer Romance is available now at Macy’s and Macys.com.
