Review: The Mystery of Bath and Body Works Cherry Vanilla
My geeky good nature is forcing me to tell you, HAPPY TOWEL DAY! It’s May 25th which means it’s towel day! Gosh, Star Wars Day and Towel Day all in the same month!
When I was a wee one, I read the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and proceeded over the course of the next 100 years of my life to re-read it over and over and over again because it was the epicenter of my geeky youthful life. Anytime I go on vacay, holiday, away for the weekend, to stay at a friend’s place, etc….I tend to tote my own towel around simply because of that blessed book….
Granted, I wasn’t up for carrying around a towel to my office today but I did tuck a washcloth in my bag just for the sake of celebrating Towel Day…ya know, gotta represent.
So don’t panic, grab your towel, and by the way let me tell you about the mysteries of Bath and Body Works Cherry Vanilla, the memo wasn’t sent to me on this one!
When the Vanilla Collection was originally introduced three scents were created, all equal and both alike in dignity and all that stuff….within a week or two of the big release another fragrance, Apricot Vanilla was available but elusive. After finally finding it I just recently learned about Bath and Body Works Cherry Vanilla…
Did I miss the memo about this scent?
No one told me about it.
Where did it come from? When did it release?
Yeah, well, I must be out of that loop!
You might be an outsider looking in too on this one but fact of the matter is there are five total Vanilla Signature Scents, one of which, Cherry Vanilla, I had never heard about until recently. Sadly, the Vanillas (confirmed) may just be disappearing come the semi-annual. The good news is Cherry Vanilla is available at 50% off retail.
I picked up the body mist recently as I NEEDED to have a complete set of Vanillas…ya know how it is with this stuff dontcha? I can’t be the only obsessive compulsive beauty junkie that needs to have complete sets of stuff.
I love cherry anything so this scent was calling my name although on initial spritz I get alot of vanilla it dries down to a bit of fruity cherry as well but for the most part the vanilla morphs the scent and the addition of other notes such as Peach, Dewberry, and White Amber drown out the tart, juiciness of the cherry.
Needless to say the scent isn’t straight cherries and vanilla but it is an interesting blend that has a certain warmth to it and a certain sensuality thanks to the White Amber.
If you like creamy scents that are warm and comforting Cherry Vanilla might appeal.
Color me baffled I never knew about it until last week!
