Fragrances have always been a huge part of my life. I have always loved perfumes, fragranced lotions, soaps, and powders. It’s only fitting that having grown up with a scent obsessed Mom, my son would be similarly obsessed! I can remember him being curious about my fragrances from an early age. I made him his first scent when he was 6, by putting a natural perfume oil in a carrier oil and into a roller bottle for him. To this day, he still loves to experiment with fragrance. My “little” boy is turning 16 on Sunday. I know what you’re thinking, I don’t look old enough to have a teen! Ok, maybe that wasn’t really what you were thinking…anyways...
In addition to giving him money for his car fund, I also wanted to pick up something special. The holidays are a great time to take advantage of packaged fragrance gift sets. Holiday shopping is something that should be fun, and not stressful. I find that fragrance gift sets make great holiday gifts, a well received hostess gift, or great for a pre holiday birthday present! I’m usually at CVS weekly, picking up prescriptions or using my ExtraBucks on beauty buys, so I have been keeping an eye out for the COTY fragrance gift sets. I knew I wanted to pick up a Nautica fragrance set for my son. He uses and loves Nautica Voyage, so I wanted to purchase Nautica Blue for him.
The top notes in this scent are pineapple, peach, and bergamot, middle notes are jasmine and water lily, and the base notes are sandalwood, cedar, and musk. The scent is aquatic, and light. Perfect, in my opinion, for a teen! The Nautica Blue gift set I purchased comes with a 1.7fl oz edt spray and a 4 oz deodorant body spray. The body spray is perfect for his school backpack for using after gym class. I find that the gift sets are a great value, and love that you can layer the scent for longevity.
