For the past year or so, I have been in a fragrance crisis. Despite how many times I searched through Sephora, Ulta, or my local department stores, I just couldnâ€™t seem to find a scent that fits my personality.
The light, sweet notes found in my once-loved perfumes smelled a bit too young for me, but I didnâ€™t want to lose the femininity that those fragrances embodied. Thereâ€™s something indescribably feminine â€“ even seductive â€“ about amber and vanilla scents.
That being said, I Â also love the woody, musky, and even citrusy notes that are present in most menâ€™s colognes â€“ Iâ€™ve actually been spraying Aqua Di Gio around my room as an air freshener lately. As you can imagine, I was totally floored to come across Boyfriend by Kate Walsh, a mens-inspired fragrance that had musky, woodsy notes while still keeping a very distinct level of femininity.
Kate Walsh missed the scent of her boyfriend on her skin (donâ€™t we all love that smell?) and set out to create a fragrance that was mens-inspired but totally feminine.Â Walsh hit the mark – there is a distinctly masculine edge to the fragrance, but it is warm, comforting, and manages remains quite delicate and girly.
While this scent isnâ€™t for everybody, it is my complete dream come true. Buy 1.6oz of Boyfriend at Sephora for $65.00 (and free shipping!)
