I told you earlier this week that I love the month of February, but the real reason is that I am a hopeless romantic, hence why I love Valentine’s Day. It is not really about the day, the cards, or the gifts, but it’s just another way to show and tell my favorite people how much I really care about them. Oh and the fact that I love arts and crafts. My mom is one of the most creative people I know. Growing up, we would spend hours in her office/playroom painting and crafting. Because she used to own her own kid’s clothing company, she was always creating. I am so thankful to have picked up this trait and love for creativity from her.
So, back to Valentine’s Day. There is something so special about a scent that is unique to you. Back in the day (I am talking middle school days) Ralph Lauren, Romance was my scent. Today, I have a few scents that I love for different occasions. This is why I am completely in love with E&J’s Nirvana perfumes. Created by Mary Kate and Ashley, Nirvana embodies ‘duality of sophistication and feminine detail balanced with downtown edge and masculine tailoring’. Two very distinct scents; the white (my favorite for daytime) has touches of peonies, muguet, and musk and the black blends violet, sandalwood, and vanilla into the perfect scent for a night out on the town.
