skylar: the clean perfume brand I love

so much, I'm on a subscription for their monthly scent
shannon silver talks skylar perfume (isle) on essellesse, a san francisco based lazy luxury lifestyle blog

I’ve been wanting to make this post for quite some time now. I’ve talked about Skylar in passing but never fully in depth.

Skylar is one of my fav perfume brands on the market. To add to their sex appeal, they are completely clean & non-toxic fragrance which we love here at essellesse.

This post is not sponsored or in collaboration or any of that but I’ll be honest, the way I discovered Skylar was via an instagram promotion about a year ago that I participated in.

Although it was my first time to learn of the brand, I was hooked by their description alone. For the post, I was sent the sampler scent & the perfume of my choice so I got to try them all right away & was blown away. Though I was gifted with both, I thought it was so cool that if you purchase the sampler pack for $20, when you purchase a full size, it’s taken off the price.

I have 3 full size Skylar perfumes: Isle, Capri, & Meadow… and I am obsessed with them. Next on my list is Willow!

Isle is my absolute favourite: think driftwood, ocean. It’s the most aquatic of them & the one I wear the most. It’s fresh yet alluring and smells like the sea.

Capri is like a limoncello in a perfume. Think citrus notes mixed with salt air & bergamot. A very ‘happy’ scent, if you will. I talked about it more here

Meadow always reminds me of Blair Waldorf. It’s very floral with a peony main note followed by Tuberose. It’s very pretty – I’m not the biggest floral fan but this one completely intoxicated me.

All of the Skylar perfumes are also designed to be layered to create your own signature scent so they all work really, really well with each other.

ok so I love Skylar so much that I joined their scent club! Basically, for $20 a month, I get a monthly scent. I joined in June & have been hooked since. Here’s a preview of the scents I already have, as well as September’s current one

June: Golden Glow: a warm, coconut, sunny scent. Feels like the beach at golden hour. notes: amber, coconut, & jasmine

July: Salt Air {MY ABSOLUTE FAVOURITE SCENT OF THEM ALL!! would die for a full size of this}: a breezy scent that made all of my dreams come true. notes: sea salt, ocean breeze, driftwood. ob-sessed. My absolute fave scent to layer wth

August: Paradise in Love: a tropical fruity scent! Kind of gave me vintage Escada vibes – anyone remember those yearly tropical fragrances?! This was tropical, flirty, & passionate. notes: pineapple, papaya, & pikake flower.

September: Wanderlust: now this is way out of my comfort zone, I almost skipped the order but I am SO glad I didn’t! Think smoky, woody, with a hint of violet. Pine, Cedar, Violet, Papyrus & I LOVE to pair this with Isle or Salt Air

October: Fall Cashmere: a spicy, creamy, comforting fragrance. Think Fall in a cup: toasted nuts, vanilla, & baking spices. In fact, it pairs beautifully with Golden Glow above for a beachy fall vibe!

a few perks with the scent club: you get 10% off all Skylar orders, you can swap out a scent you’re not feeling with any of their permanent ones, or you can skip a delivery completely.

I mentioned here that I’m very turned to aesthetics. This may sound weird but having a scent designed after the month really helps me get into the “vibe” of the month. Does this make sense? Like, as I created my October aesthetic, having this scent on helped me figure out the vibe.

In my last scent club, I added their newly launched Renewing Hand Cream to my box {for 10% off! #score} in Isle to give a try. I’ve been looking for a great anti-aging hand cream for months now.

What caught my eye was the ingredients: Hyaluronic Acid, Hemp Seed oil and Shea Butter. I can’t even begin to tell you how amazing it feels on my hands! SO so so soft, but already within a month, my hands look much more smooth & youthful. I cannot recc the hand cream enough – only $16 before the discount! This is a staple in my purse, on my desk, by the tv… anywhere I go. After I wash my hands, I apply this & can’t get enough.

It comes in Capri, Coral, & Meadow but Isle is my forever go to!

I can’t wait to try the full body line! I’m adding the bundle in Isle to my scent club next week so I’ll do a full review next month after I try it for a bit. But I’ll say this: if it makes my body feel like my hands right now, I am sooooo in.

You can shop them online {this link will give 25% off first purchase}, but you can also shop Skylar at Sephora and I’ve seen it at Re:store on Maiden Lane here in San Francisco if you want to try the scents first. However, I highly recc either the scent club or the sample set... the sample set will take the cost of it off a full size fragrance of your choice!

On another note, I am making a conscious effort to transition to a much more clean, non-toxic beauty & skincare routine. I find it’s what makes my skin look it’s best & dewiest, not to mention, the brand story is more ethical. I love supporting small businesses & find a lot of treasures from them
