Fragrance is such a personal thing. Everyone’s nose has a different preference. That’s why it can be so hard to find a universally flattering scent that will appeal to the masses. However, it’s possible that I have found just that—Leila Lou, which comes in a perfume, candle and body lotion, and for local Santa Cruz readers, it’s sold at Stripe in Downtown Santa Cruz. Wearing this fragrance makes me feel like the prettiest girl in the room. It’s delicate, feminine, smart, an “addictively fresh scent” as the company explains it. It has “notes of pear, fresh cut grass and tangerine,” and is “made with essential oils.” Ultimately, though, it’s really something unique.
