I love summer, the sights, the sounds, the smells and speaking of summer smells, the one scent that always brings to mind summer for me is fresh, juicy citrus and what better way to instantly invoke the powerful memories of summer (even when summer is long gone) than by wearing a scent that reminds you of the best time of year?  Lucky for me (and you) I discovered a great company who take natural products to the next level, producing healthy fragrances (and a whole line of natural products) that smell amazing while being all natural—Lavanila!


If you’re not familiar with Lavanila, I can’t wait to introduce you, they’ve quickly become a favorite of mine for fragrance and I’m sure you’ll love them too!

The Lavanila Promise:
To deliver a new generation of healthy and luxurious beauty products, rich in natural and organic ingredients, free from harsh chemicals and clinically proven to be effective, safe and nourishing.

I love that Lavanila is devoted to bringing their customers beauty products that are good for them and not full of harsh chemicals that so many beauty products contain.  Their commitment to providing products that are as good for the environment as they are for their customers, definitely make Lavanila a company that I can be proud to give my business to.

I had the chance recently to check out one of Lavanila’s two summer citrus fragrances that they describe as being  “everything that’s good for you and nothing that’s not”.  Lavanila’s summer citrus fragrances are fruity, sophisticated scents that instantly bring to mind a gorgeous, bright, sunny summer day.


  • The Healthy Fragrance in Fresh Vanilla Lemon: Make an airy impression with this modern citrus blend of vanilla, crisp lemon, fresh bamboo and lush watery fruits. 
  • The Healthy Fragrance in Vanilla Grapefruit: An Uplifting Citrus. This invigorating blend of sparkling grapefruit, crisp sandalwood, lime, and Madagascar vanilla is created by master natural perfumers who use only the finest pure essential oils.  

I received the Healthy Roller-Ball Vanilla Grapefruit fragrance from Lavanila to review and I was instantly a fan.  When choosing a fragrance, I tend to stick to light, fresh, floral, and fruity scents because they seem to instantly brighten my mood and make my day better and the Lavanila summer citrus scents are right on the money.  I was afraid that maybe the grapefruit scent would overpower the other scents in the fragrance, but it is a perfect balance of all of the scents that combine to create the Vanillla Grapefruit—it’s definitely a fragrance that you have to check out—you won’t be sorry that you did.  And don’t forget that Lavanila offers a wide variety of beauty products that are all natural, good for you and good for the earth—it’s a win, win, win!

You can pick up both of the Lavanila summer citrus scents online at starting at $19!
