Is it just me or Jakarta has turned into a hell of a scorching hot land these past few weeks! Literally I could be melting in my room these past few days. My AC seems like a weak fan compared to the dry sunny weather outside, the compressor seems to always overheat. I don't even know how many degrees is it outside, it's just so effing hot and sweaty, yuck!
Anyway, I guess that's what you get when you live in a tropical country. I won't complain much, but one thing for sure it's always a little bit harder for me to find fragrances that won't melt in the sun, lol.
In these super hot days I would usually change up my fragrances to the ones that has lighter scent, preferably fruity floral or "invigorating" scent to keep my body feels fresh. So I already changed up my soap, body spray, perfume, and candle to these ones I picked up from my stash below:
Bath & Body Works Coconut Lime Breeze Fragrance Mist
As soon as it gets too hot outside I turned to this fragrance mist for an uplifiting and energizing body spray. I use this right after I showered and toweled off. This fragrance mist has a fresh beachy scent with a touch of slightly citrusy note. It's very refreshing for sunny days!
Bath & Body Works Aqua Blossom Deep Cleansing Hand Soap
I've been using my Bath & Body Works Sparkling Snow hand soap which has a "winter" scent, but it's already down to it's last bit now. So to replace that I already plan to use this Aqua Blossom variant. I love the fresh and "clean" scent of this one. Perfect for everyday washing :)
Cottage Bergamot & Acacia Honey Moisturizing Nature Shower Gel
Aaahhh...my current favorite shower gel. I always switched my shower gel with this one when it's been a super hot day. The scent of this shower gel is very refreshing yet sweet to my nose. It always invigorates me every time I shower with this one. The scent is uplifting without being minty, it's more like a sweet floral fruity scent. (Reviewed Here)
Ikea Sinnlig Strawberry Candle
I don't recommend Ikea candles because they don't give strong scent-throws, but for the cheap price I think it's okay if you want to try some of them. I particularly won't recommend this Strawberry one though, because the throw is really weak (try the grey/Spa one instead). But if I put this candle really close to my nose I could smell the sweet strawberry scent which is actually quite nice. I only lit this candle when I'm working on my computer so I can put the jar really close to my face right beside my laptop (;p)
Katy Perry Killer Queen PerfumeThis is my go-to perfume on these super scorching hot sunny days! It's light, it's un-fussy, it smells "fun" and fresh. Perfect for these hot weather where you don't want a heavy perfume that could make you dizzy, especially when mixed with sweat (oh no). This is super light, smells fresh and sweet, pretty much a fruity floral scent that would be perfect under the sun. (Reviewed Here)
