I know I'm not the only one guilty of buying something based purely on its smell, so I just wanted to do a little post listing a few of the best smelling products I'm loving at the moment.
The Body Shop - Chocomania Body Butter
Soap and Glory - Sugar Crush Body Buttercream
I do not know where this sprang from!
I was innocently wondering through Boots trying to get some Christmas shopping done, then amongst the Sanctuary gift sets and Jamie Oliver soup bowls, I glanced up and there it was. Just sat on a shelf. With a strange yellow stripe. A special edition? A re-release? After looking like I'd found the grail for a few minutes I picked it up and gave it a sniff. I can say with all honesty that it's one of the BEST things I have ever smelt. One thing I've always loved about Soap and Glory is their unique smelling products. They manage to make everything smell like sugar! And for some reason though I was really surprised by this new range, it brought a smile to my face because it's fits so well with the other ranges. To try and describe it, it smells like sugar. Sugar and lemon. If it was a food I think it would be along the lines of a lemon cheesecake. It is described as a 'Buttercream' which is really easy to apply and I'm not afraid to drive my fingers in! It has a white, whipped consistency which smooths into skin and smells so lovely! I have noticed the smell isn't as strong or long lasting as The Righteous Butter, but the smell overall is a lot nicer! Again, my only criticism is that it doesn't sink into the skin very well and getting dressed was a bit of a trail, but I'm defiantly going to persevere and experiment with different amounts to see if that helps!
Yankee Candle - Vanilla Cupcake Wax Tart
Every penny spent on Yankee Candle, for yourself or for a present, is money well spent! The smell is always amazing, even before they start to burn. I can't really say much more about this one! Fantastic.
