[BATH & BODY WORKS SERIES PREQUEL] I’m a closet Francophile, and I do quite like B&BW’s original Paris Amour, so I was fairly happy when its three spinoff scents were launched. I bought this one in the sample size body lotion, thinking it had done the most right, especially with the lemon meringue notes--huge fan of anything lemony, and they sell a C.O. Bigelow lemon perfume in the same store that‘s the 100% diggity--but once it had cooked into my skin for a while it was just plain…rank. Like the fruit in it had spoiled, which is a hazard with fruity scents and me, sadly. But in this case it’s not just my specific chemistry, because I bought one for my mom, too--who has a much easier time smelling edible than I do--and pretty much forgot about it until I was driving her to her PT appointment one day and thought, “Dude, where is that STANK coming from?” Not wanting to be a d*ck, I asked her what perfume she had on, and she was like, “It’s that French Dessert stuff you gave me.” Pardon? “From Bath & Body Works, in the little green bottle.” Oh, right. No wonder, then.
