Soooo… I want to share some things, not photography related, that I really love. Stuff that makes me giddy, wows me, and just makes me HAPPY!!! Stuff that I heart. Hence, a new series called I <3 this! Hope you enjoy!
This week… I HEART Laura Mercier’s Creme Brulee line, specifically the hand creme and eau de toilette.
Until about 3 years ago, I had never been much of a perfume or scented things type of gal. I actually learned about this fragrance line, when one of my veryyyyy first clients ever gave it to me as a gift at their engagement session. Beyond being TOTALLY FLOORED by her generosity, I was also totally intrigued by the gift. She told me it was her favorite scent ever and was amazing. And history, for me, was made.
Why do I love this sooo much?
First, the SMELL! It smells like…well creme brulee! Vanilla, caramel, burnt sugar…mmm mmm mmm good! When I spray this on myself, I get hungry for dessert! But it also is very relaxing and soothing! It’s also not a sickeningly sweet smell like some vanilla based scents. And it doesn’t smell chemically or too manufactured like a lot of perfumes, which I hate. I like that the scent is grounded in the familiar, and grounded in food. Cause y’all know I love food!!!
The hand creme is very luxurious. It goes on thick but it isn’t greasy and all. It moisturizes and soothes the hands! Veryyyyy good! I would love to also try the body souffle lotion, and the honey bath treatment. I have no doubts they are equally heavenly!!
