Bath & Body Review – Pink Chiffon Body Cream
I am highly addicted to body lotions – especially super scented ones. I live in one of the driest states in the US – Arizona – so lotion is a must for me. The thicker (and smellier) the better. Who can resist all the tempting scents at Bath & Body Works? I know I can’t.
A friend of mine turned me onto the scent Pink Chiffon last year… she raved about how she always smelled like frosting whenever she wore it. Frosting? I’m in!!!! Reading the scent description on Bath & Body Works site told me a different story though:
- Our exclusive Pink Chiffon is a light-as-air pairing of soft pink petals & vanilla chiffon icing
- Key Fragrance Notes: Sparkling Red Pear, Vanilla Orchid and Whipped Chiffon Musk
I saw chiffon icing in the description but also lots of floral as well. Floral on my skin usually doesn’t end up well but I bought it anyway. When a girlfriend raves as much as this one did, I was too curious.
What did Pink Chiffon smell like? Opening the bottle for the first time was kind of funny… I smelled it and immediately didn’t like it. I smelled a complex floral. I didn’t really smell icing which is what I *really* wanted the most. It’s hard to really even describe this scent – it was sweet and delicate but to me, it was all floral. ICK! So on the shelf it went for a good several months.
What made me finally give it a whirl? My girlfriend… she kept urging me to wear it… that it changes on your skin once you have it on. So I did and am so glad she convinced me. I put it on reluctantly after a shower one morning. It was so strong going on, I didn’t wear perfume that day. Trust me, you won’t need perfume if you wear this scent. All throughout the day, I kept smelling my skin over and over. It so lovely. It’s definitely a soft floral but toned down with the musk and icing gives it a sweet edge that smells amazing. I get compliments every time I wear this.
Texture of this body cream – This is a nice thick cream. Not sticky either which I’m not a fan of… it glides on your skin easily and soaks in perfectly and boy does this scent linger on your skin. I put this one early morning and can still smell it on my skin when I go to bed.
I highly recommend Pink Chiffon if you love feminine and sweet complex scents. It’s become one of my favorite bath & body scents from Bath & Body Works.
