Scents to Cozy Up With

Wait – before you spritz that perfume on, start with one key prep step. Moisturizing with a creamy yet matte finish cream like this amazing formula from It’s Skin Korea, evens the playing field so to speak – leaving you with lustrous, soft limbs and and base that your fragrance can cling to and will diffuse your scent more evenly and help it to last much longer. So do this first!

My current favorite (such a relative phrase, I know, and I apologize but…) ultra rich, yet ultra light body cream that’s a true treatment that leaves you with silk for skin:

It’s Skin Body Romance White Moisture Body Butter. You’re massaging white mushroom, sugar cane, milk, coconut, shea butter, macadamia oil, and jojoba oil into your skin when you massage this in. It’s serious skin care for your body, it’s texture is meringue-cloud fluffy, and it’s only $21. DV8T3869



OK, once you are prepped, primed, and properly silkened, just add one of these amazing fragrances for ultimate bliss and nothing overpowering; perfect for cuddling up with a lingering yet light soft fragrance.

Serge Lutens Clair de Musc. Read a bit more about it here.  It’s soft, powdery floral is a mainstay and is an special night time favorite. It grows on you deeply with it’s extremely comforting and relaxing vibe.


Nuxe Prodigeux from Nuxe Paris. The whole Chemistry staff learned about this unique and addictive scent from our resident French import and devoted beauty maven, Maureen. Everyone wanted her perfume, and this is it. It’s Nuxe’s signature and one and only fragrance and they say it’s sunshine and warm sand. It’s also the number one seller in French pharmacies for fragrance. Orange Blossom, Bergamot, Rose, Magnolia, Coconut Milk, Vanilla…thanks Maureen.
