Bath & Body Works Santa’s Blueberry Shortbread is a new, limited edition Holiday 2019 fragrance that launched with the Sweet Shop Collection late November. This is probably one of the best collections I’ve seen from Bath & Body Works in a while and give me hopes for the Valentine’s Day and early Spring launches as that’s when they do another “Sweet” Collection. As you know, sometimes the names of products can be very deceiving when it comes to Bath & Body Works. I mean they’ll spin a scent with notes of a cupcake with strawberry buttercream frosting and vanilla cake and it smells NOTHING like a cupcake. For a gourmand lover like myself it can be freaking disappointing.
But this year’s round of gourmands for the Holidays are perfect. So far I’ve tried Merry Cookie and Bright Lemon Snowdrop and both were outstanding fragrances that I may need backups of! And Santa’s Blueberry Shortbread is turning out to be just as great!
Bath & Body Works Santa’s Blueberry Shortbread is available in Fine Fragrance Mist, Body Lotion, Shower Gel, and more. I picked up the body cream and Fine Fragrance Mist when Bath & Body Works was having a sale (when aren’t they having a sale!?)!
Layering, as always, is a good technique to making the scent last because Fine Fragrance Mist gets gobbled up by skin and never lasts. I swear I use like half a bottle of Fragrance Mist and it disappears within seconds of application. Layering with the body lotion does help things along.
This little scent contains notes of baked blueberry, crumbled shortcake and whipped cream and I have to say they really nailed it. At the opening you’re hit with a strong sweet blueberry note which is immediately follows but a sort of nuttiness that morphs into a warm, buttery Walker’s Pure Butter Shortbread note. The blueberry note is a bit synthetic but the shortbread is really, really true the life. You can smell the butter and warmth of the cookie perfectly and the blueberry just swirls around as a sweet little finish!
If you love dessert scents this is a perfect pick for you! It makes you smell like a decadent little bite of delicious shortbread!
Well worth a pick up for gourmand lovers.
