Review of Bath and Body Works whole store by Olfactoria
I'm old enough to remember when fragrances were not birthed by the hundreds each year, and there were no stores devoted to aggressively deodorizing (or is it odorizing?) American women with lotions and sprays and candles and gels in various pedestrian "fragrance" combinations of fruit, candy, and laundry soap. You can probably tell already that I hate BBW. I really do. They have cheapened the indulgent, intimate luxury of fragrance in ways I find unforgivable. Everything they sell smells like something piped through the vents at a Mall of America restroom. Plasticky, vague, nondescript, sweet-ish here and flower-ish there, just yawn yawn yawn stop already.
