The Best Sunny Scents for Winter
This year’s winter has been especially cold in the South, where cities that haven’t seen snow in decades were covered in white. Even though we had a lot of fun playing in the rare snow, we’re ready for this winter to thaw. We can feel it: Beach season is just around the corner. But since we haven’t reached sunny-and-75 quite yet, we’re spritzing these bright grapefruit fragrances. Just one spray of these citrus perfumes will transport you to warmer weather. Perfumes with citrus are light enough for everyday wear, and they smell so fresh. It’s hard to get out of bed when it’s dark and cold outside, but a touch of these citrus perfumes will wake you right up. Notes of grapefruit are the key to a lively perfume, and these are the most refreshing fragrances that pack a serving of grapefruit. With a crisp citrus scent, you’ll feel like you’re walking on air, because none of these scents are overpowering or heavy. These light grapefruit perfumes will boost your mood all day long.
