I like this scent. It's light, soft and fresh. If cotton had a smell, I imagine it to smell like this, because it just smells so nice and fresh. I like to use this as a room and bed spray, and also to spray on my clothes for that fresh laundry smell.

I have EDT, body mist and creamy shower of this fragrance line. It's a very fresh scent which make you feel better in hot summer days. Its base note is a very nice vanilla scent, very very soft. It's the scent of pureness, cleanness but not the scent of a laundry detergent or fabric softener. It would be unfair to describe this scent as a cheap room refreshener smell. I use it for me, sometimes for my bed garnets, even for the room because this smell helps me relax (kind of anti-stress smell) and I like to smell it.

It makes your clothes smell like fresh laundry. Pretty strong too, and the fragrance last for a pretty long time where ever you spray it on.

[BATH & BODY WORKS SERIES #6] My nose is fine with this scent. Canít complain at all. Itís my gorge that disagrees. About two seconds after I smell it, itís a concentrated effort not to dry heave. Thereís a sickly sweetness in the depths of this ostensibly fresh, outdoorsy fragrance that my system wants no part of. Before anyone asks, I canít remember if I had the same problem with Cotton Blossom, but I donít think I was ever in any special hurry to buy it.

I love the smell of laundry, so when I first smelled Sea Island Cotton I loved it and had to buy it. When I got home, I sprayed this on me since I never put any body mists or lotions on the day I go shopping for new fragarances. I put it on ny neck and wrists, like any other body mist, and put it away. Boy, did I make a mistake buying this product! The scent didn't smell like laundry anymore- it smelled like pine trees. The scent didn' stay any longer than ten minutes, either. It was the worst product I have ever gotten from them, and I won't be buying this again.

I think this is the best simple and inoffensive smell I've ever come across with. It does smell like clean laundry but with a dash of floral. It smells so simple and I swear I never thought the smell of fresh laundry could make me feel so feminine, calm and happy :)
I hope this never gets discontinued as I always want to have a bottle of this until I die. There are certain occasions or places when a simple and pleasant smell like this is all you should wear so as not to offend anyone.
My only complaint is longevity is pretty weak. It lasts only about an hour on me and I often find myself reapplying several times a day.

This is my favorite scent of all time :) I'm NOT picky when it comes to body sprays/perfumes, I think A LOT of perfumes smell good, but my head thinks otherwise Lol I'm prone to migrane headaches so unfortunately there have been quite a few times that I've liked a scent, but 5minutes after spraying it I've gotten a headache that laid me out for a 5hours :(
Fortunately for me I love this & it agrees with my head as well :) I've already repurchased this 3-4x as well as the body lotion, the EDP, shower gel & bubble bath!
I feel that A LOT of B&BW stuff is overpriced & overrated.. Some products seem expensive to me when I feel like I can find the same scents that are the same quality at WalMart. I find this to be very unique though. The best way I can think to describe it is that it's how you'd imagine fresh laundry to smell :) I'm quite surprised it doesn't have a higher raging, it's very light & breezy, not too "flowery" or "musky", nor is it overbearing.
This gets 5 lippies from me & I will continue to repurchase as long as B&BW continues to supply!

Just didn't like it. Exchanged it. Horrid!

I'm not a big fan of BBW body sprays, but I do own a bunch of them in different smells and presentations. I think some of them are TOO strong (like dark kiss, black amethyst etc) but I got Sea Island Cotton in a sale, have never smelled it, just throw it in my bag at checkout. I love this smell, it is clean, fresh, and although it smells GREAT on linens, on me it doesn't smell like fabric softener, I get a more enjoyable scent that is not strong, just like a nice body odor. My boyfriend likes it, and he is very picky with smells (I am, too). Bottom line, great for everyday, jeans and white tshirt kinda thing, I would not use it to an event or something big, but is ok for the office as it is almost unnoticeable, clean, sweet.

I received the gift set of this scented spray, lotion, and body wash a couple of years ago. I'm not too fond of the smell; it smells like dryer sheets, to be honest. Plus, it's so overwhelmingly strong that I find that in can become nauseating.
My preferred use of the spray is for my linens and couches. That's the only way I'll be able to finish this off.
Overall, I would never have purchased this myself (thanks, "friend"), as I'm not too keen on the scent.

This is my husbands favorite scent, of the ones I own. It is very clean and fresh. I have used it as the lotion, spray, and body wash, all smell great. I have used it since it was called Cotton Blossom.

This is really nice and very fresh. It smells like a strong cotton. Simple, but a nice everyday scent.

I love the smell of fresh sheets out of the dryer and that fresh clean out of the shower scent. Now I can have those scents whenever I want. This is a light, clean, inoffensive scent, and to some it may be boring, but sometimes you want to just smell clean. I like to spray this on half way through the day when I don't have that out of the shower clean anymore. This is not sexy and exotic scent, but it is just so comforting. This is the only scent that my boyfriend ever comments on, which is great because this is probably my least expensive fragrance and it's easy to get.

I love this scent when ever I am stressing I spray myself with it and I relax. This scent is a very calming and relaxing scent and I love it.

The packaging is pretty standard. Clear plastic spray bottle with a on/off cap. The travel sized version of this is big enough that you get enough and small enough that it will be able to be thrown into most purses. The amount you get is quite alot for its size. Ive prob sprayed it about ten times and it hasnt even made a dent. It smells like the febreze"clean linen" scent but in a perfume version. Trust me it DOES NOT smell like febrezze but it smells really fresh, clean, and just smells like fresh laundry. I like using this when I dont wanna small like flowers or fruit;just fresh and clean. :) Its a great product. I got this for about 6.50 which is personally alot for a mini version, 3$ is more reasonable.

I do like this scent, especially after it's calmed down a bit once I've had it on for a couple hours, but it's probably not something I'd buy again. I think I just like clean scents better as air fresheners or linen sprays than I do on my body. I was hoping this scent would win me over, but it hasn't.
I also don't find this to be a very light scent. It's not heavy in a floral or musky wayóit's simply very strong. If I put it on before I go to bed, my sheets reek of it for days. I also was hoping it would be something I could use on days when I get migraines and am sensitive to strong smells; unfortunately, it's too strong for that. (I should add, I have the cream, so that's the only product in the line I have experience with.)

I LOVE Sea Island Cotton which was once Cotton Blossom. I'm usually pretty picky on my fragrances at BBW. I like Sweet Pea but SIC is my new favorite. I completely forgot about how fresh it smells on and it lingers nicely. Enough to get just a whiff of it. I use the body wash, lotion and spray and the layering seems to make it last all day. I get compliments from my family members, my boyfriend and our guy friends all the time about how I smell clean like fresh laundry. I really like that this fragrance is light but lasts and it's not strong at all. This will always be a favorite of mine.

Let me start off by saying that I have a slight disdain for BBW stuff, so a review of one of their products is gonna be a rarity from me. Most of them are too strong, or not strong enough, or turn my stomach, and are too expensive. However, I got bored at the mall the other week and strolled inside. Before the inevitable BBW headache came on, I took a whiff of Sea Island Cotton because I remembered a friend of mine and I used to make fun of the boring name and concept. Boy, should you NOT judge a book by its cover... er, a fragrance by its name. I was intrigued by the soft, powdery scent and had to take a small size home. When I finally sprayed it on, it has an immediate burst of what can only be described as "really strong dryer sheets" or "fresh linen right out of the dryer." It's a tad potent at first, but once it settles, it leaves behind an absolutely delightful, powdery, fresh, light, clean, feminine fragrance that lingers on your clothes and skin for long after it's applied. I've been using it for a while now, and plan on using it for the rest of the summer- it's a great fragrance for the season! This and Japanese Cherry Blossom are the only BBW signature fragrances my doglike olfactories can really take. I would have given this 5 lippies if it lingered a little longer. Other than that, staying power is pretty good, the blue packaging is SUPER cute (BBW re-did their packaging again, and this time it's actually better than before as opposed to being a hideous, gaudy re-do), and the price is, well... BBW is pricey. But I'll shell out the dough for this. 'Nuff said. ^^

This is a very beautiful, clean scent. Whoever described it as "fresh linen" is spot on. Most of the time, I don't want to smell like "perfume", I just want to smell clean and this is the perfect scent for that. Definitely would purchase again!
