I hate alcohol, but I really love this scent. I'm not sure if it smells like gin & tonic or not, but it smells fresh and clean, sort of like laundry.
Skincare - Face -Aveda - Blue Oil Balancing Concentrate

I'm not sure what this stuff was created for, but I put it on my nose every night (to balance the oiliness), and it tingles wonderfully. It clears the sinuses! But it seems like an awfully expensive cure for clogged sinuses, so I'll stick with Vick's Vaporub next time.
This is a WONDERFUL smelling soap! It didn't leave my skin dry at all, and the smell was wonderful all day long. I can't put my finger on the smell, maybe chocolate? But a really subtle chocolate.

This stuff smells like cat pee. I sprayed it on and the smell haunted me all day, no matter how many times I tried to wash it off.
Deodorants -Unlisted Brand - Crystal Body Deodorant Stick

This crystal deodorant is seriously wierd. My experience with it, and the experience of several of my friends, is that it works for a month or two but then completely ceases to be effective. I would not buy it again.
Lotions/ Creams -Burt's Bees - Milk & Honey Body Lotion

I love this stuff. It smells unlike any other lotion I've ever smelled, like something good is cooking in the oven except it's all over you. But if I'm using this lotion it's impossible to wear perfume, too, because no perfume (or anything else in the world, for that matter) smells quite like it.
Marc Jacobs smells rich like gardenia, and I got a lot of comments on it, e.g., "mmm, you smell so good," and "ooh, what perfume are you wearing?" Then after a few months of having the bottle I foolishly swapped it away for something I thought I wanted more... big mistake! Luckily, one year later I was at Marshall's and found a bottle of this fragrance for a fraction of the price ($25 instead of $55), and bought it right away. It is delicious, wonderful, and glamorous. I'm glad to have it back.
