My Favorite Perfumes

by Mama Chocolate on December 13, 2011

Most perfumes and lotions give me headaches after I wear them for an hour or two or if I’m around someone who is wearing them.

Sometimes the headache hits almost instantly after applying or standing next to someone who is wearing heavy perfume.

The worst is after I’ve been in a store for awhile where candles, perfumes or other fragrances are sold.

Apparently, I inherited this from my mother, as she has the same issue, and I know there are a lot of other people out there with similar fragrance sensitivities.

Fortunately, before I was even old enough to think about buying perfume for myself, my mother had discovered L’Occitane’s beauty products, which both she and I are able to use without adverse effects!

Cherry Blossom Perfume

I have the Jasmine Green Tea, Rose, and Honey fragrances, and I even have some of L’Occitane’s luxurious vanilla bubble bath in my cupboard. I’m stingy with it, though, and since I rarely get around to taking a bath, I still have a little bit left!

I love the Cherry Blossom scent and purchased it for my mom a few years ago.

Whenever I am passing the L’Occitane store, I find some excuse to pop in and take some deep breaths.

Without a headache. Sweet bliss.

I am the same way, and also inherited it from my mom and grandma. I’ve found a few scents I like over the years, but would love to smell the Cherry Blossom scent you talked about!

I can imagine the Cherry Blossom scent, too! It sounds great! I didn’t realize they carried bubble bath, I’m a huge fan of baths so I’ll have to try it!! :)

I’ve never tried their fragrances….or I have I? Surely I have a sample around here somewhere. ** Heads to L’Occitane’s website **

I’d recommend the Jasmine Green Tea! Warm to the eyes and subtle to the nose! My sister has one and I immediately asked her to get one for me last Christmas after I smelled it from her. Definitely one of the most adorable perfumes, if you prefer subtleness in tone
