Because I did so well at not spending money in NYC over the weekend, I had to go and blow it at Body Shop in Union Station while waiting for my Dad. The Body Shop is always such a good deal (sales, sales and more sales) but besides the frugality factor, certain smells always remind me of certain friends. Because it's an international chain, I go in and smell my teenage friends. Marilyn smells like that perfume, Kate used to wear that sunblock and Aisha once loved that body butter. It's a smell trip down memory lane.
These two scents are delicious and ever so light, like the notes of a flute. Plus the packaging is delightful.
Aloe & Linen smells so fresh that it reminds me of newly laundered sheets. Meanwhile Vanilla & Tonka Bean is sweet but elegantly spicy. (And I usually HATE vanilla scented anything). But I do tend to go for musky scents when the temperature drops. Both are such a good deal because you can use them in your room, on your sheets or on your body. You can't go wrong with a three for one!
