As much as I love complex scents, I find that too many fragrance notes can sometimes go from head-turning to overwhelming in a single spritz. That’s how I came to adore aerie’s soft shimmer. This chic scent is perfect for those days when you’d rather let your statement necklace be the focus of your outfit—and not your perfume.
Shimmer is a lightweight fragrance blend featuring some of my favorite notes (vanilla, bergamot, peony), and the pretty frosted glass bottle is a fun addition to the growing perfume collection on my ever-crowded vanity. And if you’re still on the fence about switching to a pared down fragrance check out what some of our savvy customers have to say:
Daydreamer256 says: ”I’m quite picky about fragrances, but I really loved this one. It’s light and fresh. It could easily be worn to work without overwhelming the office. I would definitely consider this as my new perfume when I run out of my current one.”

What to Wear for Family Breakfast During the Holidays
Some of my favorite moments during the holidays are when I’m back at home in my parents house, eating breakfast with my family. My dad cooks up pancakes and omelettes—and while my sisters and I handle the eating, inevitably my parents are both snapping pictures during the whole meal. The problem is, while I always love looking back at those moments, some of the clothing choices I made are less than ideal. If only I hadn’t worn that old t-shirt and those boxers!
That’s why this year I’m planning ahead and packing some cute pajamas that will make the whole situation more photo-friendly. I found the perfect ones at Aerie, which just so happens to be my favorite place to get bras and underwear, too (they always seem to fit much better than other brands). Am I alone in thinking family time should equal cute pajamas time?
PJs and underwear aren’t the only things we love by Aerie. We’re also a fan of their Shimmer fragrance, a crisp combination of vanilla and bergamot.
