The Best Subtle + Sexy White Flower Fragrances For Summer

Nothing says Summer nights to me like the smells of night blooming white flowers. Jasmine, gardenia and orange blossoms for instance transport me to Summers past, driving in cars with the windows down and letting the night air in, adventures ahead and not a care in the world. While I may no longer be that carefree, wild Summer girl- I can still love the scent of night blooming white flowers- the perfect scent of Summer.
