One of the questions we get asked the most here at LIY is about our favorite scents to wear! I feel you girl, it’s so nice to have a go-to scent – but sometimes it can be tough to know where to start with so many out there. We are here to share the fragrances that keep us spraying everyday and hope you love them too!

I am a big Jo Malone fan [my go-to is often the wood sage & sea salt] so when I saw this Nordstrom-exclusive scent be released last year that had lavender in the title, I knew I had to try it. I will admit I don’t notice the lavender so much in the scent as I expected to, however, I do get a strong woodsy scent thanks to the silver birch. It is more on the masculine side, so if you prefer more feminine scents, this may not be the one for you!
Feminine, floral scent with Patchouli and Vanilla notes to give it depth and a slightly richer smell. This gives the scent a rough, rich but feminine and luxurious smell.
Top: cattleya orchid, freesia, centifolia rose
Middle: sambac jasmine, osmanthus
Base: patchouli, vanilla.Mood: Exuberant, positive, confident.
Hannah, from the team, wore this one at the office and I immediate HAD to have it! Note: I’m someone who prefers warm, muskier, woody scents, so if you prefer floral, this might not be the one for you! It’s light, fresh, and has a mix of bergamot, fig and bay leaves, cedarwood, vetiver and musk. Basically, all of my favorite scents in one! It’s described as “citrus, rich, soft, fresh and sensuous”!
– Top: bergamot, bay leaves, black tea, fig.

A few years ago a girlfriend of mine was walking in front of me and I HAD to know what perfume she was wearing. None other than Jo Malone Wood Sage and Sea Salt. It smelled fresh and clean with a hint of masculinity to it! It was probably a bit creepy how often I was smelling her, ha! Now several years later, I’m wearing it every day and still loving it each and every time I put it on! If you don’t love floral scents and love a bit of masculinity, this one is for you!
