Latest Obsession: C.O. Bigelow Lemon Lime Body Splash Review and C.O. Bigelow Lemon Pomegranate Body Splash Review
Oh let me count the ways I oh so love the new C.O. Bigelow Body Splash!
Anyone try yet? If not you NEED these.
I snagged two of these from Bath and Body Works recently and I’m utterly obsessed.
What are they?
A light, fruity fragrance mist laced with tart lemon and cocktail’ed with lime, pomegranate, and orange!
If you’re a fan of the C.O. Bigelow Lemon Collection, you’ll want to pick these up as they are just gorgeous particularly if you love the tart sweetness of lemon! Each blend is laced with lemon plus an additional note of either pomegranate, lime, or orange blossom. I picked up two of the three which were C.O. Bigelow Lemon Lime Body Splash and C.O. Bigelow Lemon Pomegranate Body Splash. I wasn’t partial to the orange blossom mix and felt like it would have been way better if they left it simply as lemon and orange as the “blossom” part of the fragrance comes across a tad meh to me so I left it in the store.
Now the Lemon Pomegranate Body Splash is my fav of the two! It’s bright, zesty, tart, and bittersweet thanks to the edge the pomegranate gives to it. It’s very fruity, very playful, and very Spring/Summer-ish! Quite a gorgeous scent and ideal for layering with other items in the range for long lasting throw and linger!
Lemon Lime Body Splash was my second fav as it too carries a certain zest to it lent from the lemon and the lime in the fragrance. it comes across incredibly tart with a itty bitty sweetness. It’s probably not for everyone as its a tad of lemon/lime overdose but I really liked it.
If you aren’t layering up with other items in the collection the mists fail to linger long. You really have to hose yourself down with the fragrance to get good throw and linger and even after that, if you’re lucky, it’ll last maybe two hours tops. I felt like they were a tiny expensive at $16.50 each particularly since the scent didn’t linger so well.
Who might like it?
- Anyone who simply adores the tart, juicy sweetness of a lemon!
- Anyone who wants to experience a little something different at their Bath and Body Works shop!
- Anyone who wants a fruity, sweet fragrance to break in the warm weather with!
Who might not like it?
- Those who want a long wearing fragrance.
- Anyone who dislikes sweet scents or fruity ones.
I thought they were complete winners particularly the Lemon Pom mix up, I fully recommend purchasing that one at the very least as it was gorgeous. As I mentioned above the Orange Blossom was less than thrilling but all three are worth sniffing.
