My scent story: sunny days and sandy beaches

With one deep breath, I am reminded of a warm sunny day spent enjoying my family.

When I pause to regroup in the middle of my day and remind myself why we all work so hard during the week, I always think about warm days spent in the moment with my family.

You know those days. The ones where the biggest decision will be what to eat for dinner, and the only thing you need to remember to do is put your hat and sunscreen on.

And I love sunscreen; the smell of it instantly reminds me of our moments together, whether we are in the back yard during the summer, or on vacation in Mexico in the winter. When the sun is out, so is the sunscreen.

I was out shopping last week and before I knew it I was standing in the sunscreen aisle smelling the different sunscreens and thinking about our recent vacation. We spent our days on the beach drinking virgin piña coladas and margaritas. Our girls spent hours swimming, and running in and out of the water while they giggled uncontrollably.

In Manzanillo Mexico in February 2015.

Sunscreen was applied a lot during those days, and for me, it was a small break in a fun day to check in and chat with my girls as I applied sunscreen to my captive audience.

Then came the moment during the sunscreen application that went unnoticed to everyone else, but always means so much to me. I went in for a hug and a quiet I love you when I was done. As I held each of them, I’d take a deep breath as if trying to capture all of the smells, sights and feels of the moment to paste in my mental scrap book.

This was often met with ‘mo-om…’ as they pushed away to run back into the water, but those memories will stay with me forever.

With Air Wick’s new Life Scents line, I no longer have to stand in a random sunscreen aisle to be transported back to our sunny days. Summer Delights is one of four fantastic scents that brings back these memories for me.

Air Wick Life Scents in Summer Delight
Each Life Scents has a layer of three fragrances within them. For example, Summer Delights has citrus, floral, and vanilla scents. I can smell each scent listed on the package either individually, or together. I love this because in my day to day routine, I don’t just smell one scent. There is always so much going on around me and Air Wick is capturing more of an experience rather than just one scent with the Life Scents line.

With the varying scents in the same package, the change in fragrance notes makes it feel like the scent lasts longer because I don’t get used to just one scent.

Working in my office just got more enjoyable with Air Wick Life Scents.
Right now, Summer Delights is plugged in in my office near my desk as a reminder that I work hard to enjoy these precious moments with my family.

A house isn’t a home until it is in the air. With Air Wick® Life ScentsTM you can say what you want through your home. Each Life ScentsTM fragrance contains three constantly changing unique scents that let you create your own home experience.
