Escape the Winter Blahs With a Tropical Vacation in a Bottle

With the mercury plummeting and the calendar confirming there’s at least two solid months of chilly temps ahead, it’s easy to fall into a slump.  (Don’t we all?)  What better way to perk up than to treat yourself to one of these fragrances redolent of a tropical beach vacation.  (These mini-splurges are far easier on the wallet than an actual vacation, natch.)

If fun had a scent, it would smell like Vanille Banane by Comptoir Sud Pacifique. ($53) With notes of banana cream, vanilla, and even a tiny hint of rum, it’s like relaxing with a scrumptious cocktail. 


The mystique is strong with this one, my friends.  Celebs love Child ($53) and for good reason—this jasmine and pikake-spiked perfume oil is incredibly sexy.  Dab a little on in the morning for a spring in your step all day (and about a million compliments).



The heady white flowers in the lush, feminine Estee Lauder Private Collection Tuberose Gardenia ($65) make it equal parts beach babe and garden party. 




To soothe chapped winter skin and transport yourself to the land where palm trees sway—try Bath & Body Works Coconut Lime Verbena body cream. ($10.50) The unusual combination of zesty lime and creamy coconut will keep you coming back for more.
