Pick a Fragrance & We’ll Tell You What Kind of Spring You’re Going to Have

Springtime is here! After what felt like the longest Latino despedida at the doorway, the darkness and gloom of winter are finally saying farewell, leaving us with the brightness of the days ahead. 

Spring represents everything from rebirth, to renewal, to productivity. And one thing’s for certain–spring is marked by distinctive scents. April showers. May flowers. Fresh-cut grass. Newly picked citrus fruits. Sephora has an endless range of scents that will make you feel like spring has come alive. Pick any Sephora fragrance below and we’ll tell you what kind of spring you’re going to have.

Renewing

These scents refresh and renew you, making you feel bright and alive after a long, cold winter.

If you picked this refreshing, clean scent, it might remind you of getting caught in a spring shower. The keynotes of citrus lemon primofiore essence, guava, and musk bring you right to a tropical rainstorm. Open your arms and enjoy the downpour.

Dolce & Gabbana – Light Blue 

This fragrance is like a seaside getaway! The scent notes of citrus, bamboo, and green apple perfectly capture the essence of springtime in the South of Italy. Nothing says rejuvenation like a last-minute trip with your amigas to the isle of Capri.

Maison Margiela – ‘REPLICA’ Beach Walk 

This fragrance is like…you guessed it, a trip to the beach. But not just any beach, it’s a chill beach, as the summer crowds haven’t poured in yet. The notes of bergamot, heliotrope, and coconut milk bring to mind a long leisurely stroll next to the waves.

Valentino – Voce Viva 

The mixture of italian bergamot, crystal moss accord, and orange blossom gives off a warm floral scent that is remindful of a springtime picnic. Imagine yourself spread out on a blanket, feeling the light spring sunbeams kissing your skin while you enjoy the good company of a friend.

Flora by Gucci – Gorgeous Gardenia 

The red berries, pear, and white gardenia keynotes in Flora by Gucci Gorgeous Gardenia will make you feel fresh and energized–just like how you feel after giving your house a top-to-bottom spring cleaning. 

Carefree

Get out your sundress because this fragrance is perfect for a garden party. The notes of jasmine, orange blossom, and patchouli are perfect for a breezy gathering with girlfriends under the springtime sun. 

NEST New York – Seville Orange Oil

Armani – My Way 

The sweet notes of orange blossom and vanilla will transport you right to a nighttime spring Carnival. See yourself at the ring toss or lining up for the Ferris wheel. Just make sure you let out your inner child for the night.

If you’re the type of person that wants a bit of everything, then Sephora Favorites – Deluxe Mini Perfume Sampler Set is perfect for you.

Starbucks Changed Its Stance On Letting Baristas Wear BLM Apparel— These Black Coffee Shops Will Do You One Better

Starbucks Changed Its Stance On Letting Baristas Wear BLM Apparel— These Black Coffee Shops Will Do You One Better

After receiving backlash from fans, Starbucks has had a change of heart on its position prohibiting employees from wearing apparel, such as T-shirts or pins, that support the “Black Lives Matter” movement. In a press release posted to employees, earlier this week the coffee giant revealed that it would not allow baristas to promote the moment. This is despite the fact that it has publicly supported “Black Lives Matter” on its social media channels.

In a new statement released on Friday, Starbucks said they felt it was “critical to support the ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement as its founders intended and will continue to work closely with community leaders, civil rights leaders, organizations, and our partners to understand the role that Starbucks can play, and to show up in a positive way for our communities.”

For many, us here at mitú included, Starbuck’s decision to allow its employees to promote the BLM movement by wearing paraphernalia associated with it is just a little too late. And certainly not enough.

If you’re looking to promote the BLM movement, we encourage you to do so by buying Black. The next time you crave some coffee forget Starbucks! Shoppe Black is a website that curates Black-owned places to buy from and they recently shared Black coffee shops to buy from.
