This product has unfortunately been discontinued by BBW, and what a shame! To me, this splash smells just like Irish Spring Soap! What a fantastic Scent! This is what I crave to smell like on those days when you truly want that out of the shower Aroma that sticks with you all day. Got it dirt cheap at the Winter SAS of 2013. I really wish they would re-consider letting this one go!
*****ATTENTION: I spoke to a BBW Customer Service Rep , and she informed me that they've decided to keep this wonderful fragrance and instead change the packaging! Crisis Averted....LOL.

Got this on sale for 3 bucks. Never pay full price for a body splash from b&bw! They always have great sales. Anyways, LOVE this scent. It is really clean, fresh, and nice. Makes me feel fresh even on those days when you kind of feel grungy and gross. It kind of reminds me of a guy's scent.. however I still love it. I always say that all the b&bw body splashes are great for summer because they're all light and refreshing.

Crisp and citrusy, not too overwhelming even when overly-sprayed. Too bad it’s not a regular in the store anymore but definitely worth giving it a shot if you do spot it – Bath & Body Works does bring it back from time to time during their annual sales.

Fresh and invigorating, wakes me right up on those lazy mornings. My favorite combo is the body lotion and splash. The lotion smells pretty strong when first put on, but it's a nice, fresh smell, not at all overpowering. There's nothing out there that smells quite like Cool Citrus Basil - I find that products which contain citrus of any kind are too overloaded with the citrus ingredient and that's all that I end up smelling.

I found this at the semi-annual sale and considered getting it because it smelled "different" compared to all the other scents I have from b+b..I let my boyfriend smell it in the store and he said it smelled exactly like Irish Spring or Zest deodorant soap- and he's right! I've actually used those soaps before and put up with the dryness they caused on my body because I love the fresh clean scent! So this is great because now I can use moisturizing soaps and then spray this!
It really doesn't smell like the name suggests, it's just really nice and clean smelling, I can't see many people NOT liking this because it's an overall fresh scent. This is one of the few b+b products I would actually recommend buying online without necessarily smelling- I could see someone using this in the bathroom or on linens if nothing else.
The only downside- the lasting power! I feel like it doesn't last it all so I end up reapplying 3-4 times a day. Since it was only $5 on sale, it's worth it to me still. Might be my new favorite!

My favorite classic by bath and body works!

A deliciously fresh and zesty soapy fragrance, this is a scent I continuously come back to every once in awhile, so I keep stocked up on because I know I will always like this one. It smells clean and sunny from the blend of juicy citrus and crisp basil. Not a sweet scent and not flowery - could be used and enjoyed by men or women but as a woman I never feel that this is too masculine for me. I love the shower gel, lotion and splash in this scent. I wish they had an EDT in this!! I never get tired of this scent and every time I come back to it I immediately remember why I love it so much.

This smelled okay to me, but my boyfriend thinks it smells like dishwashing liquid...
so will not repurchase.

I love this cool fresh summer scent. I can't even describe it except its a fresh "green" scent. I wish they made it in a lotion and body wash. If they do I've never been able to find it.

Great clean scent for summer. I like it because it smells a little different than most.

The best unisex scent! I loved this years ago and so glad I was able to stock when the semi-annual sale came around. I usually tend to find most BBW splashes smell too much like alcohol. But in this scent, it actually works. Great during the summer heat waves, so much that my DAD has hijacked a couple bottles from me and my sister. I love that it smells clean and fresh, nothing cloying about it, and it make my car smell great!

I picked up a bottle of this at the Semi-Annual sale. Cool Citrus Basil is a light, citrusy, fresh, soapy scent --- perfect for summer. I wore this scent when I started a new job, and I didn't feel like I was knocking out my co-workers. It isn't sickenly sweet either, like a lot of BBW scents, so I didn't tire of it.. I'll probably try something new next, but I would definately buy this scent again.

LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT!!! I relaly like the smell of colognes, and this somes rather close. It's one of the only perfumes I can actually stand. Smells slightly floral and just fresh and cool and nice. MMmm.

Like some other reviewers, Citrus Basil and Coconut Lime Verbena are my BBW favorites. This is a very light and fresh fragrance. A great way to get that just-out-of-the-shower smell.

This is a HG for me. I love that it doesn't smell like anything else I have worn before, and I like to wear unusual fragrances.
I wear this when it is hot outside (like now), and I don't want a crazy, heavy scent on me. Just something light weighted and fresh. Nice.

At first I loved the scent of this, but after using it for a few days it now smells ordinary to me and only lasts about an hour at best. Even when layered with the shower gel and lotion it was gone in no time. There are much better scents out there with some staying power.

Ok, I've had so much fun shopping today. I just picked up this scent today at the Bath and Body Works Semi-annual clearance, and let me tell you, I LOVE IT! I was in search of a new summertime scent, that wasn't too strong or fruity smelling, so this one worked out just perfect. It kind of has a minty outdoors smell to it, which is really refreshing. I got this on sale along with the body lotion for only $ 4.00 each. Great price. I love this sale they have every year. You can find some really great products that got discontinued. Cool Citrus Basil is definilty one of my favorites I have tried in a long time, and I stocked up since I knew I couldn't find it again probably until next year's sale. If you haven't tried this scent, give it a shot. I get so many compliements on this one particular.

I used a little sample at a hotel and absolutely loved loved loved it. I took it with me to the store to buy more and was so disappointed to find out it was discontinued. I happened upon several bottles, however, at a clearance sale and was so happy. This is my favorite BBW scent, w/ Coconut Lime Verbena a fair second. I tend to like basil scented lotions and scents although some can be overpowering. This scent isn't overpowering - just the right amount of each note to be pleasant and clean. I wish it wasn't so hard to find.

I bought this at BB&W semi-annual sale, as well as the cordinating body lotion and anti-bacterial hand lotion. What drew me to the this was the Irish Spring scent (as noted by another reviewer), but alas. There is something in this scent that makes me sneezy, and my throat scratchy.
I suppose that's ok, because while I DO like the Irish Spring scent, it's probably best left to males. Maybe they'll want my leftovers of this....

My third favorite BB&W scent, behind Coconut Lime Verbena and Moonlight Path. This is all grapefruit on me and it's absolutely delicious. I want to eat it!
