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!

The Good…..

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.

The Bad…..

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.

Final Thoughts…..

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.

    I’ve loved everything I’ve had from C.O. Bigelow. My current perfume is their Lemon Eau de Parfum and I’ve been eyeing the Lemon Lime Body Splash for a couple of weeks

    I have the Lemon /Orange Blossom. As a huge citrus fan I need to try the Lemon/Lime as I can never have enough Lime :). The Orange Blossom one is nice, but as you said mostly Lemon. But it’s nice. Will be great for the uber hot summer days . I knew they wouldn’t be long lasting , but still nice if you don’t mind re-spritzing.


    oh so sad that thye only last 2 hours tops 😉 but meh what do you expect witha body spray

    p.s the bottle is really pretty I love the gradieted look

    OMG! Want want want! I LOOOVE Lemon AND Pomegranate…and I’m going shopping this weekend where there’s a B&BW! Need! I’ve been wearing splashes and fragrances more and more frequently, and these seem worthy of a haul! Plus I need some more Liplicious…it’s an obsessed 😉 I just tried three of the “newer” glosses in P.S. I Love You Spring Fling, Blue Colada, and Guava Passionfruit. First two are nice, but the third is my new favorite gloss!!! It goes perfectly with my favorite face and eye look.

    oh muse…your making me lem this really bad! The lemon/lime one sounds delish! Love lemon and lime together!

  • rhon228

    I’ve used the body wash/scrub and lotions in both these fragrances. I love them so I will probably be picking up the splash. Thanks.

    The lemon/orange blossom one smells EXACTLY like the Le Couvent Des Minimes Orange Blossom they had a few years ago. If there was a lemon anywhere in there, I didn’t smell it.

    I actually really like how C.O. Bigelow will choose a scent or flavor and have that be the theme of a whole line. I’m thinking of course of their minty Metha lip balms that then are infused with a touch of this or that.

    These look great.. I think I would like these two better over the Orange blossom as well. I know BBW has 20% off coupons randomly..so I might wait to take advantage of that

  • Hana

    …should I have gotten these instead of the Eucalyptus Spearmint and Milk & Honey and Vanilla Lemon sprays I got? XD I really love all three of these though.

    I have the Lemon Pomegranate body butter and lip cream and the Lemon Lime body souffle and they’re both really amazing smelling!
