Yesterday I popped into the Body Shop (@theBodyShopusa on Twitter) at Union Station while I was waiting for a friend to get off the train. I haven’t been in the shop in a while because I tend to avoid the mall like the swine flu – I hate the noise and crowds and horridly dressed people (I have an overwhelming urge sometimes to ask people if they’ll let me go shopping with them), but I had time to kill so I thought I’d do some research for the blog. I’ve always loved the Body Shop’s body butter and I love their Merry Cranberry Body Butter scent and I was surprised to see a new scent added to the list.
Black Velvet Apricot Body Butter is the most sensuous and heavenly scent I’ve tried in a while. I like the scent of peaches but this was deeper and richer and with a heavenly perfume to it. Not too heavy but something a bit seductive to the scent. I just kept inhaling deeply. I’m pretty sure the young lady working the register thought I was going to get naked and slather my whole body right there in the store but I refrained. I’m kicking myself for not picking up the $8 travel tin, but I’m on a budget and hoping that maybe someone will give me the Black Velvet Apricot Celebrations Set for Christmas!
A little body wash, a little lotion and a soap! It’s all about layering scents to make them linger a bit longer. Although, I don’t know if I can wait for Christmas, that smaller tin of body butter might need to be added to my desk drawer filled with beauty supplies.
