Bath and Body Works got into the Summer game really fast this year. They started pimpin’ out their new Summer Vanilla scents and offering sample sizes way back in February. That’s what I’m talking about! Who needs Winter when we can have Summer!
What are they?
A range of bath and body goodies and fragrances that have a dominate vanilla note and a secondary note such as berry, lemon, and coconut! Perfect Summer cocktails for your skin and body!
I think Imma love all three scents! I know some of you expressed a strong dislike for a scent or two while favoring another but I think I love all three of them although I admit some are better than others.
Bath and Body Works Summer Vanilla Berry Vanilla!
Pretty much a juicy berry laced with a bit of lemon, some raspberry, a tiny bit of blackberry and just the right finish of vanilla cream! Comes across very sweet on my scent and is a pretty solid fruity berry scent but the faint underlay of vanilla makes it into more of a dessert rather than a complete fruity fragrance. Gorg!
Bath and Body Works Summer Vanilla Lemon Vanilla!
Incredible cocktail of juicy, tart lemon, orange, and mandarin with a heavy duty lace of sugared vanilla and a hint of cotton candy to make it into a slice of lemon cake. The fruits and blend of cotton candy and vanilla creates fruity, food-y blend that will make you tummy grumble for cake.
Bath and Body Works Summer Vanilla Coconut Vanilla
The most tropical of the three! Take it away with you on vacation or wear it when its really hot outside so you can experience that tropical island feel! Comes across with a heavy dominate note of coconut and dries down to a creamy vanilla coconut pie! Delicious.
Sadly, you better layer as the fragrance sprays aren’t so great at wearing long so you’ll either need to retouch within 2 to 3 hours or layer up with the matching lotions and shower gels in the collection.
Who might like it?
- Anyone looking for some gorgeous Summer scents at an affordable price ($12.50 Each or Buy 3, Get 2 Free)!
- Anyone who loves vanilla mixed up with a bit of fruit!
- Anyone who loves coconut, berry, lemon, and vanilla scents particularly cocktailed together!
Who might not like it?
- Anyone who doesn’t like dessert-y, foody scented products.
I thought they were a nice introduction to Summer and well worth a haul particularly with the sale price at Buy 3, Get 2 Free as you can mix and match with lotion and shower gel, etc….total price comes out to around $7.50 a piece so quite affordable. I love scents that combine a bit of fruit and a bit of food and these give off the scent of a decadent slice of cake or some sort of yummy dessert.
Overall, quite nice and worth a little of your cash!
