This week’s theme at Facebook Fragrance Friends was Jeans and a T-shirt fragrances. Here are the perfumes I wore:

Sunday: Sofia by Sofia Vergara
Cassis buds, juicy blackberries, luscious plum nectar, purple violet, Colombian luna musica orchid, earthy woods, toasted praline, vanilla absolute and creamy sandalwood.
So this wasn’t really for this week’s theme, it was more for last week’s, lol. But I’ve been trying to get a feel for this perfume ever since I got it. I was given an Amazon giftcard, and this is the item I bought with it. It’s been compared to La Vie est Belle, and Coco Mademoiselle, and I get that. It’s a fruity patchouli scent. It has decent longevity, and smells like it costs more than it does. It’s a grown up lady scent, a fancy wife scent, or maybe a woman out on the town, sipping a cocktail at a sidewalk cafe kind of scent. I’m not sure if it’s “me”, but I’m going to keep trying it.

Monday: REPLICA Lazy Sunday Morning by Maison Margiela
Top notes: Pear Accord, Ambrette Seeds, Clean Accord
Middle notes: Iris Accord, Rose Petales, Orange Flower
Base notes: Patchouli Indonesia, White Woods, White & Creamy Musk 

I was intrigued by this one after watching Karina Waldron’s YouTube review. I love clean scents, and this is a great one. I get a light floral, along with the clean note. I love white musk in fragrances, and I found that a lot of my Jeans and a T-shirt scents have this note, lol.

Tuesday: Glossier You
Unlike traditional fragrances, Glossier You is heavy on warm, creamy base notes (musk, ambrette, and ambrox) that transform and smell a little different on everyone. Top notes of earthy, green iris root and spicy, sparkling pink pepper are fresh and clean without being overpowering.
I chose this as one of my Scentbird decants, and it’s one of my favorites. It’s musky and fresh, clean and pretty. A great everyday type of fragrance. I definitely plan on buying a full bottle.

Wednesday: Chloé EDP
Top Notes: Peony, Lychee, Freesia
Heart Notes: Rose, Magnolia, Muguet
Base Notes: Amber, Cedar
Chloé is what I would probably choose as my signature scent, if I had to pick. It’s elegantly casual, breezy and floral, a perfect clean type of rose scent. I love it so.

Thursday: Myth by Ellis Brooklyn
Top: Bergamot, ambrette seeds, cassis
Mid: Tiger orchid, pink lotus, jasmine petals
Dry: Patchouli, liquid musks, white cedarwood

This perfume is fresh and slightly sweet. I feel like it could easily be unisex. It smells clean and musky. Very easy to wear.

Friday: Stella EDP by Stella McCartney
Top notes of Rose, Mandarin, and Peony tickle your sensual side. The same rose scent becomes gentler around the heart and the base is a deep note of sublime amber.
Stella is another clean, fresh rose scent. It’s different from Chloé, but similar. A great everyday scent, perfect for summer.

Saturday: Amazing Grace Magnolia by philosophy
Notes of bergamot and nectarine accord mingle with sweet magnolia and violet. warm musk, solar amber and a wisp of driftwood.
Another Scentbird decant. As you know, magnolia is one of my favorite scents, and this is a pretty one. It doesn’t last very long, so I wouldn’t repurchase, but I’m happy to be able to try it.

This was a fun theme! What are your favorite Jeans and a T-shirt type fragrances? Tell me in the comments below:
