Life bottled: perfume notes you’ll find in a spa

By Lauren Carbran
 

Love indulging in a spa break? Then you’ll obsess over these perfume notes, which you can smell in a spa near you. We’re relaxed just thinking about our top spa smells…

YSLnuithommeLavender

Dedicated fan of lavender? Yep, so are we. And unless you’ve been living under a huge rock for most of your life, you’ll know that most spas use it as a massage oil. Well, lavender is officially having a major moment in perfume, too – thanks to its calming properties. Find your inner zen with Yves Saint Laurent La Nuit de L’Homme for him, which oozes with Sicilian bergamot and lavender. Mmm… and relax!

acqua di gioiaMint

You can’t go wrong with a whiff of mint – it relieves tension and increases your alertness. That’s why you may have been reminded of polos during your last facial. So, to stay in the minty theme, we suggest Giorgio Armani Acqua di Gioia for her. Why? It’s full of the scent of crushed mint leaves, which blend with brown sugar and lemon to keep you smelling fresh (and just like a mojito). Beware: your mouth may water…

dolcegabbanaaftershaveGinger

It’s time to welcome ginger into your fragrance palette. Yes, it has a fiery taste, but it smells delicious. It’s also used in essential oils to relieve muscle pain and improve circulation. So, give your nose a treat with Dolce & Gabbana The One For Men Eau de Toilette. You’ll love how the ginger mixes with grapefruit and orange blossom. We heart!

guccibambooedtJasmine

We’re suckers for jasmine, aren’t you? Its status in the spa world is nothing new – apparently it boosts self-esteem and can help you feel better about your day ahead. So, the fact that it comes in a bottle of perfume is a major fist-pump moment. And we’ve totally met our match with Gucci Bamboo Eau de Toilette, which blends jasmine with orange blossom and ylang-ylang (AKA heaven).
