The scent of spring

With Snowmagedden behind us, I think I can now safely say that spring is in the air. And there's no better way to celebrate than with a lineup of fresh, uplifting fragrances.

Fragrance and I haven't always been friends. I find most perfumes overpowering and sneeze-inducing. Hence I was delighted when I discovered the solid scents from Pacifica.

Here's why I heart this product:

1) Light scent. Because you apply the fragrance with your finger, you can layer on as little or as much as you like.

2) Natural. The only ingredients are fragrance, natural soy and coconut wax. There are no parabens, petrochemicals or synthetic dyes.

3) Easy to pack. The perfume is a solid, so you can just throw it in your carry-on without worrying about spillage.

4) Super affordable. At $9 each, the scents make for a guilt-free splurge.

Even better, Sephora is now offering a set of five scents for only $25. The I Love Fragrance set includes Tuscan Blood Orange, Tahitian Gardenia, Hawaiian Ruby Guava (my fave), Indian Coconut Nectar and French Lilac.

This is one little luxury that will put a bit more spring in your step.
