Scent Alert: Mary Kay’s Forever Orchid

I’m not a fragrance girl by any means and oftentimes, I find perfumes to be way too strong. As such, I typically prefer to use lighter and more playful body sprays that give off the scent of cakes and cookies (vanilla frosting flavors, anyone?).
So it’s rare that I find a fragrance I want to share with someone that doesn’t smell like it came out of a bakery in a cute little box. But that moment came recently when I

tried out Mary Kay’s new Forever Orchid Eau de Toilette.

I was pleasantly surprised to find a fragrance that smells great but isn’t all encompassing, like so many others. The Forever Orchid scent, achieved through a unique blend of purple orchid and creamy vanilla, is the perfect floral fragrance for those of you who have a fear of strong perfumes or who are looking for a subtle yet sophisticated scent.  
In addition to the Eau de Toilette ($25), the Forever Orchid line includes a shower gel ($15), sugar scrub ($15) and body lotion ($15) so you can enjoy its subtle scent whenever you want!
You can purchase the Forever Orchid line on Mary Kay’s website
