Recently I picked up the Carol’s Daughter Vanilla Marshmallow Body Cream and Body Cleansing Cream Duo from HSN. I have to say I don’t understand why Carol’s Daughter doesn’t carry these scents on their site or in stores like Target. Scents like Jamaican Punch, Pomegranate Rose, and other wonderful blends seem to be exclusive to HSN. I don’t mind shopping HSN but I’d love it if some of the brand’s more unique scents were also available on their site and at mass retailers.
Anyway! Vanilla Marshmallow became available recently on HSN.com and I quickly snatched up. I mean vanilla, marshmallow, that’s a no brainer for gourmand lovers like me right? Add to the fact that many of the Carol Daughter’s Body Creams have such a lasting and strong fragrance and of course, I had to have this one.
I think Carol’s Daughter gets so many scents right like their gorgeous Black Vanilla one not to mention some of their yummy body creams in Angel’s Food Cake, Buttercream Cocoa, and Vanilla Truffle. I felt for sure that something like Vanilla Marshmallow would be amazing!
Sadly, it disappointed. Sigh! It had such potential!
The notes on this are vanilla, marshmallow, and soft florals. This really doesn’t smell anything like vanilla nor marshmallow. It’s a very, very, very soft floral scent. I’m talking VERY soft. I could barely smell it.
I’m crushed. I expected a fluffy marshmallow scent with notes of creamy vanilla! What I got was a soft barely there floral.
Carol’s Daughter fans be warned, skip this one!
