Bath & Body
Whoa…anyone see the new Bath and Body Works Fragrant Waters? My sis and I were at BBW last Saturday morning and ran across a slew of new items one of which were these huge, super size elegant bottles of Bath and Body Fragrances.
Jump ahead for a peep!
These are incredible. 10oz size but they seem even bigger to me! Housed in a chunky, fun glass bottle each fragrance is $18.50 each and available in a variety of Bath and Body Works scents, new and old classics. These are rather ideal for Summer as they really bring to life the sparkling splash that Bath and Body is so well known for but in a quirky, clever packaging. I was pleasantly surprised that the scents last considerably longer than the normal body spray range and linger quite long.
Normal body splashes cost $12 and are 8oz in size so these aren’t much bigger for the price but as I mentioned the scent seems to linger a good deal longer with a nice throw, could be they are using more fragrance oil in these. Quite nice really and pleasantly got me back into enjoying Bath and Body Works scents with this new style packaging.
Regular splash versus Fragrant Waters
If you’re not willing to dish out for a large bottle you can indulge in the new Bath and Body Works Fragrant Waters Roller Balls. These are equally as cute and $7.50 won’t break the bank. These are ideal for throwing in your purse for a quick roll on of your favorite BBW scent. Cutes!
The scents available in the splashes and roll ons are:
- Wild HoneySuckle
- Black Amethyst
- Butterfly Flower
- White Citrus
- Japanese Cherry Blossom
- Sweat Pea
- Dancing Waters
I got mine in White Citrus, remember how I was all about the scent of White Citrus a few weeks ago? White Citrus is a fresh crispy citrus with lemon, orange and bergamot. Very refreshing and tart for the Summer weather!
With is super cute packaging I’m enjoying the reinvention of Bath and Body Works fragrances. Loves ‘em! Although they have a Summer feeling about them I’m hopeful Bath and Body Works will embrace the line and continue releasing other scents in the Fragrant Waters line. I’d love to see some Fall blends!

Happiness is a cheap way to get Summer soft, silky smooth skin on a beauty budget price. Caress Evenly Gorgeous Exfoliating Body Wash and Beauty Bar is the newest addition to the Caress Skinwear Collection and baby I’m a love it!
Click ahead to hear the review!
This is the first time I’ve heard of Caress Evenly Gorgeous Exfoliating Body Wash. The wash contains brown sugar and karite butter for a smooth, moisturizing exfoliating experience. The gel has a nice, moisturizing feel on the skin but it’s the brown sugar that really wows me as it gets rough elbows and knees in tiptop shape. The scent of the wash is a beautiful, sultry fresh blend, quite addicting! The scent lingers quite nicely long after your shower is over!
The line even includes a new Caress Evenly Gorgeous Exfoliating Beauty Bar so you can start out by treating your skin with a quick scrub down with the soap and proceed to follow up with the wash.
If you’re looking for a budget friendly option to get your rough skin into silky smooth shape Caress Skinwear is the way to go for under $5 bucks.
By now I imagine I sound like a broken record. But..ahem…allow me to repeat myself for the umpteenth time and mention that Philosophy continues to impress me with it’s 3-in-1 Shower Gel range.
I’ve always been a mad fan for Philosophy Shower Gels but even as a fan I confess disappointment over a few that didn’t quite smell like their namesakes. Ok, I admit some were down right wrong on many levels.
But over the course of a year and a half or so Philosophy has beaten out shower gel after shower gel that impresses and tops each past release. The scents are creative, true to their namesakes, and delicious. Actually if I think about it they are exactly what I originally hoped and wanted from Philosophy but somehow was disappointed when it didn’t turn out as such.
Why you must ask am I going on about this now?
Well, Philosophy has three brand new scents available at Sephora and I suspect more will follow soon for Fall.
Click it and learn what they are and why I’m excited!
Indeed I’m not averse to a quick stop at The Sweet Shoppe, particularly Philosophy’s Sweet Shoppe.
Now available and brand new are the Philosophy The Sweet Shoppe Set that includes Watermelon, Little Fishy, and Bubblegum Scented 3-in-1 Shower Gel ($30). Although I find myself unexcited about the actual set (I prefer the large size shower gel bottles) I am excited about the scents. Little Fishy? I adore the scent of Swedish Fish candy! Bubblegum? Another fond favorite! And Watermelon too? Be still my beating heart.
I hope that Philosophy will extend these scents to the bigger bottles if not I shall indulge in the set but I’ll keep my eyes peeled for a larger size.
Also available is the Philosophy The Sweet Shoppe Lip Shine Duo ($20) which includes Watermelon and Bubble Gum flavored glosses! Sweet! What happened to Little Fishy though? Sob!
Whatever your opinion of Philosophy you can’t deny the cuteness behind these sets!
Anyone else excited?
Bring a little touch of sun to your fragrance with Summer by Kenzo Eau de Parfume. With notes of bergamot and citron this fragrance will surely please for daytime wear all through the Summer heat!
Jump ahead to hear the review!
The Muse finds many of Kenzo’s blends a bit overly floral and quite powerful. My sister is a huge lover of all of Kenzo’s blends and can’t rave them enough however for myself some are a tad too strong. However, I recently found love with one of the Kenzo Eau de Fleur fragrances and now with Summer by Kenzo.
With a burst of warm, slightly sweet floral Summer by Kenzo is a sultry fragrance that captures the spirit of the season. Notes include bergamot and citron with a warm powder dry down and touches of amber, almond milk and mimosa. Summer by Kenzo is a complex warm blend that’s sure to bring a touch of warmth to your Summer fragrance regime. The golden lines of it’s leaf-shaped bottle is a sunny piece elegance for your vanity.
Capture the warmth and sizzle of the season with Summer By Kenzo, one of my favorite blends for Summer so far!
Worthy of a sniff!

Ha and you thought that Sephora US had some stupid offerings! Check out Sephora France’s Shampooing Shampoo.
It’s a shampooing shampoo which basically means it’s a shampoo you can shampoo with. Cool right?
Um clearance rack anyone?
Jump for it!
Available in 14 scents this is a mild shampoo from Sephora France.
Ok, ok I admit that I’m eager to start shampooing my hair with shampoo that has scents like Chocolate Praline and Vanilla Creme Brulee. Maybe Sephora France does have the upper hand here.
Can’t have it, exclusive to Sephora France sadly.
No worries maybe the shampooing craze will catch on and Sephora US will start carrying these and we can all indulge when they hit the clearance rack for a buck.
What do you think about Sephora releasing shampoos?
Yay or Nay?
