the body shop

One of my favorite scents from The Body Shop has always been shea nut. It never fails to lift up my spirit and remind me of summer, for some reason. I just love it!

However, this is a scent that only used to be available in the forms of body butter, lip balm, and shower gel, and I must confess that spreading body butter every single day after the shower is not that appealing to me, no matter how good it makes me smell afterward.

A few weeks ago, as someone smelling like shea butter passed by me, I started craving this beautiful smell all over again. After a quick search, I found out that the range had grown so much that they even had this scent as a perfume and body mist. I just couldn't help myself and ran straight to the store to get it.

Being at The Body Shop store and not smelling everything is a complete waste, so I quickly found myself with hands full and completely undecided. Luckily for me, there was a promotion going on, which helped me decided on what to get, as you can see - hahah!

Even though these are both very nutty scents, they are completely different from each other.

Whilst the coconut scent is more deep, sweet and strong, the shea nut is more woody but fresh at the same time. It's difficult to explain, so I guess you'll have to give it a try. I've been loving both of these body mists every single day since I got them, and wearing them intercalated according to my mood. It may sound strange, but this has become a step in my morning routine that I look forward to every day.

You can get both of these scents as perfumes as well, but since scents tend to stay on me for a long period of time, I decided to get the lighter version instead. Just two spritzes, one on the front part of my neck and another at the back are enough for me to smell great until the end of the day.

So there you have it. This is how I'll be smelling like for the next few months. Just in case you're curious, haha!
