The first is Korres body butter in guava. It’s hard to find a sweet, fruity summer smell that isn’t cloying but doesn’t fade. The fragrance is summer in a bottle and it makes skin smooth and moist.
Summer in a bottle no. 2 would be Alterna’s Ocean Waves texturizing spray from their limited edition Summer Hair series. Preface: (1) my hair becomes a windblown frizz fest as soon as I step onto the beach; however, (2) this product does not give me that hair, (3) nor does it give me the much sought after elusive beachy, wavey, Noxema-girl-of-yore-hair (who I just realized starred in referenced commercial with a young Jared Leto. Thanks YouTube! You are so educational!). It does lend volume, texture, and crazy wonderful scent.
