Fragrances -Bissy's Boutique - Toasted Marshmallow
uplate6674 8/25/2007 4:19:00 PM
This does smell just like a toasted marshmallow - there's an initial toasted note that dies down to a subtle, gooey-chewy marshmallow scent. I had to let it cure for a week before the scent came out. I have it in the Primrose Lotion.
I have this in the Primrose Lotion. When I first apply it, there's a mildly sharp green note, but it dries down to a nice, sweet strawberry scent. It doesn't smell cloying or artificial. I did have to let it cure for a week before the green note softened.

This smells so good that I just had to use it right away, even though it's 91 degrees out and definitely not pumpkin time. It's a sweeter pumpkin scent - the spices don't overwhelm, they just lightly balance out the foody and sweet notes. This was my first CP soap purchase. It doesn't lather up that well, which I expected because the water here is harder than a diamond. It cleans fine, though - my skin smelled clean and the soap wasn't drying at all.

I gave this fragrance an average rating because I like some of the products in this scent and not others. I love the shower gel and EDT, which have a tart, sweet, non-astringent grapefruit scent. The body cream and body spray, on the other hand, smell like mandarin oranges and musk. I'd rebuy the shower gel and EDT but not the other products.

This smells more like mandarin oranges and musk than grapefruit to me. I wouldn't rebuy.
Skincare - Body -Bath and Body Works - Cherry Blossom

I have this in the antibacterial hand gel. I don't really like the way it smells. I don't know how to describe it, but it has an "off" smell that either isn't present or has been covered up in the Japanese Cherry Blossom scent, which I like a lot more. Perhaps it's the musk note.
I have this in the Primrose Lotion, which is very light and absorbs quickly. But as for the scent - all I smell is a "burnt" note with maybe a very faint sticky sweet scent behind it. It's a so overpowering I had to jump back into the shower and wash it off. I smelled like a kitchen fire. I haven't had this very long, so I'll check it again in a week or so to see if the scent needs to cure, but for now I can say I definitely don't like this.
I have this in the Primrose Lotion. It smells warm, cozy, and sweet. Very comforting. I plan to buy a body spray and perfume in this scent.
I have this in the Primrose Lotion, which is wonderful. This smells terrific, like lots of sweet, sweet blueberries with a cake note. It's so syrupy sweet that it smells more like blueberry pancakes than muffins.

I love this lotion. LOVE. It's light, absorbs instantly, and holds scent well. I plan to buy this many, many times.
Fragrances -Victoria's Secret - Vanilla Lace Silkening Body Splash
uplate6674 8/17/2007 7:29:00 PM
This is pretty lightly scented and not very long-lasting. It's a nice enough smell - like vanilla extract with a hint of musk and amber rather than a foody or floral vanilla. But because of the faint smell and because I prefer sweeter/foody vanillas, I won't repurchase. EDIT: I'm not liking the amber/musk note. I take back what I said about this not being long-lasting, because all I've smelled for the past four hours is amber. Ugh.

This is an OK vanilla. It's like vanilla extract with a hint of musk rather than a foody or sweet vanilla. The scent is really faint sniffed straight out of the bottle, but it becomes stronger once it works up into a rich, foamy lather. It's a great body wash that I will use up, but since I prefer foody vanillas, I won't repurchase.
Fragrances -Bath and Body Works - Fresh Vanilla EDT
uplate6674 8/16/2007 4:14:00 PM
This is a kind of bland, non-foody, non-floral vanilla. It smells pleasant but not outrageously good. The lasting power is not too great. It's not a bad scent by any means, but I don't get all the raves.

This is a bracing, warm, spicy and sexy scent. It's quite light, too, so it's good for summer. I wish BBW weren't discontinuing this. I plan to stock up on more body sprays before it's removed entirely from the website.

Everything about this shower gel is intense: it smells like very sweet, very lemony, very strong iced tea. All of the notes are quite strong. Unique and fun.
