Bath & Body Works Plum Potion Body Lotion Review

Have I ever told you how car air fresheners totally freak me out?

Ugh. I hate the stench of a car air freshener particularly one that’s been left in a car for several hours on a hot day.

That’s some seriously bloody smelling shiz. Reminds me of the 80’s and Monte Carlos.

P U!

Bath and Body Works manages to capture that really bad smell and bottle it up in their new Plum Potion Body Lotion for Halloween.


Who smelled it?


I think it stinks!

Holy migraine inducing Batman!

The notes are supposed to be sweet plum, blood orange and black raspberry but something, maybe the raspberry, really takes this off into the land of bad smelling car air fresheners.

It’s not really my scent, I guess some people might love it but who those people are I really couldn’t say…! No offense if you love it.

The plum comes off nice and sweet but I’m not getting any orange and as I mentioned the black raspberry tips it off into a scent that gives me a bit of a headache.

No likey.

It’s probably the worst of the six Halloween Body Lotions that Bath & Body Works released.

If you smelled it, what did you think?



Do share!

It’s available now at Bath and Body Works.

    Wow i’m surprised i thought plum would smell really nice! I use to always use Biolage shampoo just because it smelled like plums to me!

    Thanks for the heads up! I hate over powering scents because they also give me headaches.


    • 8/11/11 15:41 the Muse:

    Reminds me of that Stephen King story, “Riding the Bullet,” where a hitchhiker gets picked up by a kid. The kid’s car has this off smell about it, kind of like something under an air freshener, and it turns out to be formaldehyde because he’s DEAD. Tee-hee.
