Bath & Body Works Boardwalk Marshmallow Clouds is a new Summer 2018 fragrance available in the Fine Fragrance Mist formula as well as the regular round up of shower gel, body lotion, etc….! I’m likely so attracted to this blend because it reminds me a little bit of scents like Bath & Body Works Vanilla Bean and Beach Nights. Some people have gone so far as to call it a dupe of Beach Nights but although smells similar it still manages to stand happily on its own two legs.
Bath & Body Works fragrances are a constant repetitive circle of scents (even in candles lately!) but sometimes I’ll run across something that sticks out for me and Boardwalk Marshmallow Clouds is one of those scents that sticks out for me.
According to the brand the notes include candied whipped vanilla, marshmallow meringue, white magnolia & fluffy sandalwood. I feel like for once that’s a fairly accurate description of the scent. It smells like a really sophisticated marshmallow gourmand to my nose with each note playing an important role in the final dry down.
During the first misting, wet on my skin, I get a sweet, sugary blend of vanilla as it dries down fluffy marshmallow comes into play and the scent goes all gooey and warm. Within a few minutes you can smell the faintest hint of white magnolia with a beautiful sandalwood note that blends perfectly with the vanilla and marshmallow creating a cozy, warm feel.
This is such a weird fragrance because when I smell it I really do think of the boardwalk, fluffy clouds of cotton candy, dripping vanilla ice cream on big waffle cones. Yet at the same time it also reminds me of Winter and sitting by the fire wrapped in a blanket eating toasted marshmallows. It’s such a yummy little scent! Sadly, as with most of their scents this sort of fades away quickly but I do layer which does help it to stick around a lot longer!
I think I’ll likely grab up backups of this! I actually wish they’d keep it around as a permanent part of their collection because it smells so lovely!
Do grab it!
Anyone try it and love it as much as I do!?
