Happy National Fragrance Day! 10 Best Picks For Spring ’16

Today is not only Good Friday, it’s National Fragrance Day! So of course I had to do a little research on some of the hottest fragrances for Spring/Summer ’16.

If the description says it has notes of “patchouli” I run screaming in the other direction.

My perfume preferences, especially when it comes to the warmer months, are light florals, clean greens and fruits. Oh and I’m a sucker for roses, which you will see by my selections. Hopefully at least one of these picks will be of interest.
