WITH THE NEXT BIG THING…
Fragrance waters are the scent equivalent of no-makeup makeup
FUN FACT: eau de parfum means “perfumed water” in French, but it’s been several centuries since the translation carried much accuracy. Most fragrances are alcohol-based, which enhances their longevity but can be tricky for those with allergies or sensitive skin. Water-based fragrances are lighter, airier iterations perfect for these warm summer months, or try an alcohol-free powder scented with essential oils.
