Gals, do ya remember Bath & Body Works’ awesomely clean Rainkissed Leaves (about $10) scent from last summer? If you went ga-ga over it like I did, then catch a whiff of Kenzo’s new Eau de Fleur de The Tea ($55).
Eau de Fleur de The Tea has a crushed-leaves-in-the-rain vibe that reminds me of B&BW’s Rainkissed Leaves but also carries notes of green tea and musk (like the scent of clean skin). It doesn’t smell overwhelmingly like tea (seriously, who wants to walk around smelling like a tea bag?), which has been a beef I’ve had with other green tea scents I’ve tried in the past, but it does smell just enough like green tea to be appealing.
“A white cowbell with a heart of gold. Sheltered under its leaves, the tea flower diffuses a floral concoction with notes of green tea and a hint of musk. Kenzo flower waters are picked from Japanese trees. Each eau de toilette in the collection evokes a delicate trail of tree blossom. Three new fragrances made of natural, clear and streamlined floral notes. Every year, Kenzo will enrich this collection by picking another flower.”
All week long I’ve been layering it on top of Rainkissed Leaves Body Wash and Lotion. The two scents complement each other nicely.

I think I’m ready to set aside my winter fragrances for a while.
Speaking of spring, I’ve been spending waaay too much time surfing the web for cute spring outfits. Have you checked out J. Crew lately? Spring is in the air.
I think I might’ve missed the memo about pegged pants coming back in style, LOL!
