That was then. This is now.

Is there a specific scent that you used to love but eventually grow out of? For me, it's The Body Shop Oceanus edt. It has been discontinued for a while now but I still have more than half a bottle left.

Top note is water lily; middle notes are violet, jasmine, lily-of-the-valley, rose and geranium; base notes are sandalwood and musk.

When I first got it I thought the scent was so fresh and uplifting. It always sets me up to a good, industrious mood and makes me want to play volleyball at the beach or something. Haha. It was definitely my favorite summer holiday fragrance but sadly, now it just smells offensive to me. I rarely ever wear this anymore and guess what, the last time I wore it, my friend actually said the same thing: too sharp and annoying! So, back to eternal oblivion it went (I mean the shelf).

How about you? Any fresh-scented fragrance you'd like to recommend maybe? I'm listening. ;)

  2. I used to like Thierry Mugler's Angel - really don't like it now either :-)I still have plenty of The Body Shop's White Musk - i love it though i rarely wear it.
    When i want something fresh i go for more cologne type scents. Both the Clarin's Eau Dynamisante and Eau Ressourcante are quite fresh and inoffensive for everyday. And even the Yves Rocher Fraicheur Vegetale 'Verveine' is a very fresh lemony scent which is great for when it's REALLY hot and you don't want anything sickly sweet or headache inducing. Cheap too.

    1. I remember Angel! I think my aunt used to have it. I also had The Body Shop's White Musk but grew bored of it so I gave it to my sister. Haha. Thank you so much for the recommendation, I'll look into those!

  4. Body Shop scents totally remind me of high school - I was obsessed! I think I bought every single perfume they had. My favourite is White Musk, but I had Oceanus as well, which is quite summery and refreshing, though I agree that it smells sharp and artificial, not as nice as proper perfumes :)
