Is there a sourdough-scented cleaning soap? A breadstick physique butter? A rye loaf hand cream? To the very best of my information, most magnificence merchandise that scent like baked items are of the candy selection — cake, cookies, frosting.
I like candy scents as a lot as the subsequent Nutella lover, however there’s a positive line between juuuuuust candy sufficient and gag-inducing.
Remember Jessica Simpson’s Dessert magnificence line of edible merchandise that was at Sephora a few billion years in the past? It had lipglosses and physique glitters and lotions you can eat? Even although I’m THAT PERSON who shamelessly orders two desserts at dinner, each time I caught a whiff of one of many merchandise I needed to toss my cookies. They have been too candy for me, however a lot of folks liked them. (Side word: Apparently there weren’t sufficient individuals who liked them, although, as a result of they have been hit with a few lawsuits and subsequently went out of business.)
Everyone has a distinct opinion on the subject of fragrances. One lady’s cloying is one other lady’s perfection. Like, proper now I’m right into a kinda up-and-coming Canadian cruelty-free model known as Cake. They make dessert-scented physique and hair merchandise, they usually’re coming quickly to the U.S. in Rite Aid shops.
I’ve been metaphorically devouring (as a result of the merchandise aren’t really edible) the shampoo, conditioner (why do I like that it’s known as a “creme rinse”?), body cream and the hand cream, and each time I sniff my arms or my hair I am going YUM! — however I’m positive there’s somebody on the market who would completely barf as an alternative. LOL!
Unsurprisingly, I like merchandise that scent like issues I’ll eat, so something with caramel, vanilla and honey, however normally provided that the merchandise even have some bitter notes for steadiness, like coffee, darkish chocolate or lemon…
Yes, I do know I’m bizarre, ha ha.
Anything too artificially sugary, like robust buttercream, meringue or cotton sweet, turns my abdomen.
While we’re on the subject, how do really feel about physique merchandise with a “milk” scent? Are you within the “love it” or “hate it” camp? I’m in the middle. I can take it in small doses, however my buddy Cindy CANNOT stand something that remotely smells like milk as a result of she dated this dude as soon as whose pores and skin smelled like bitter milk, and it ruined milk for her. But she’s all about inexperienced tea scents!
Yeah, you realize somebody’s a very good buddy when you realize their perfume loves and hates and why, ha ha!
Your pleasant neighborhood neighborhood magnificence addict,
