Why do some smells trigger such powerful and emotional memories?
Fragrances are one of the strongest triggers of memory.
Quick and painless science lesson that’s actually pretty interesting… Your brain’s olfactory bulbs process the scent and send that information straight to your amygdala, which is where you process emotions. From there they go to the adjoining hippocampus, which is where memory and learning happens.
Scents are the only sensory input that travel this way, with sights, sounds, etc going through the thalamus instead. Because scents bypass the thalamus step, there is an extremely strong tie between emotions, scents, and memories. See? Now you’re ready for pub quizzes when they reopen.
Some people even use a scent to help remember a loved one and feel close—I remember my mum always wore Issey Miyake when she would go out, so now I keep it by the door and spritz it when I’m feeling nostalgic.
I’ve always loved scents and own quite a few! But I often want something subtle that will last all day (but not be overpowering like some eau de toilette). Which is why we created our Australian made Body Mist Fragrances that would tick all the boxes.
Introducing Everyday Lingerie Co’s Body Mist Fragrnaces!
We teamed up with a naturopath, aromatherapy specialists, and chemist to create four signature scents. Each scent is based on one of the four elements – earth, air, water, and fire.
Our perfume atomisers are air-pressurised (non-aerosol) and skip the nasty chemicals. And they’re packed in Melbourne and made from all Australian ingredients—even the alcohol comes from grapes from South Australia! Of course, they’re also cruelty free and vegetable/ palm oil free.
The result is a natural perfume atomiser in a convenient 100ml bottle size. It can easily fit in your bag for on the go, and all are priced at only $21.95!
So which fragrance are you and your friends?
Oceana gals are young and carefree, and they live for warm, sunny days by the water. Oceana is the scent of a fresh ocean breeze with the subtle blend of rosewood with lavender, violet, and summer fruits coming together to take you back to warmer days. Aquatic fragrance lovers are free-spirited dreamers, casual and cool, spontaneous, and relaxed.
Leilani ladies are earthy and elegant. Perfect for a day-to-night scent and captures the very essence of soft fruits and floral tones providing a sweetened Vanilla fragrance. Feminine, friendly, and quick with a smile, Leilani wearers love to tick off their to-do lists as much as they love being outdoors and sipping a drink with friends.
Aria wearers are a bit more mature and love to take time to be with themselves and just breathe. The perfect blend of Jasmine and vanilla with soft wood under tones, I wear this one day in and day out. Everywhere and every day. All the time.
Gazania women are strong and unapologetic, bursting with warmth and confidence. The strongest floral burst, Gazania brings together five floral tones to create this perfectly balanced scent for fiery, strong women who love themselves and are comfortable in their own company.
Choosing the right fragrance that complements your personality and makes you feel happy can set off your whole day, so head on over and check out our range to discover the perfect one for you.
It’s also a really thoughtful gift idea and shows you care enough to think about not only what scent she would love, but also which matches her personality.

There's a saying that I often share with my client’s which is:
What we focus on, we continue to notice and experience to the exception of everything else.

Trying to find the right underwear size can be difficult due to different companies making different sizes. To make things easier we have created a step by step guide to take the guess work out of the equation.
Below we have measuring instructions with images to assist you, alternatively we have a video taking you through each step.
All you need to do is take 2 simple measurements; your waist and your hips. The best way to do this is by using a soft measuring tape and a mirror to ensure you are accurate.
Your waist is the natural in indentation above your hips or just below your rib cage (see image to right). Wrap the soft measuring tape around firmly without pitching your skin together – write this measurement down
Now wrap the soft measuring tape around the fullest part of your hips, this is approximately 7 inches below your waist (see image to right). Use the mirror to check that your measuring tape is completely straight and parallel to the floor – write this measurement down.
Example: If your waist is 78 cm and hips 104 cm we would recommend a size 12, however if you want a slight looser fit you may opt for a size 14.
|Waist Measurement (cm)||70||75||80||85||93||100||107||114|
|Hip Measurement (cm)||92||98||104||110||117||124||131||137|
|USA||4 to 6||6 to 8||8 to 10||10 to 12||12 to 14||14 to 16||16 to 18||18 to 20|
|UK||6 to 8||8 to 10||10 to 12||12 to 14||14 to 16||16 to 18||18 to 20||20 to 22|
|EUROPE||34 to 36||36 to 38||38 to 40||40 to 42||42 to 44||44 to 46||46 to 48||48 to 50|
