Have you ever smelled a scent that was similar to your ex-boyfriend's cologne, and it brought back a lot of (bittersweet) memories of him? Or maybe a scent from your childhood, like the smell of pancakes and syrup, brings back a ton of childhood memories for you. It's not surprising, since the area of the brain associated with smell is the same area as that associated with memory, and olfactory nerves carry the smell to the part of the brain where memories and emotions lie.
I had the opportunity to try a collection of scents that brings me back to my beloved tropical beaches I'd used to go to yearly as a child and a young adult. The scents transport me to a warm tropical island of sand, sea, and surf, sipping a mango banana shake while watching my friends and loved ones frolic in the fine white sand beach. These new scents from Filles des Iles Parfums are infused with sun, hot sand and juicy exotic fruits. One whiff and the scents remind me of the smell of sunblock, piña colada, sea water and images of glorious, tanned skin all around me. These new mini “resort-wear” scents evoke the tranquil memories of vacations past with four sun soaked, bohemian-chic scents to escape with. These scents come in convenient, roll-on tubes you can stash in your beach tote for quick touch-ups. Since I can't share "swatches" of fragrances with you (don't you wish we have "scratch-n-sniff" computer screens? LMAO), here are the descriptions of each one:
