Bath & Body Works Cherry Blossom Range Review : Triple Moisture Cream, Fragrance Mist 

Guest Review by Kritika (Combination Oily Skin, Medium Skin tone)

I absolutely love winters and can’t wait for them get here! Get ova here already mate! One of the main reasons I can’t wait for winters is that I’m all set to get out my winter stock of moisturisers and body mists? What do I mean winter stock? Well, there are summer fragrances and then there are winter fragrances and I bought a truck load of stuff from Bath & Body Works last year, and this particular one with the Japanese Cherry Blossom Scent is a part of the winter stock and you’ll know why just in a minute..

It smells of winter, warm fuzzy socks, big cuppa cappuccino and a romantic novel. It smells of foggy mornings, woollen caps and mittens. It smells of Saturday early morning auto rides with no traffic and the wind blowing in your hair. Okay okay, I’ll stop. Its just one of those warm, seductive fragrances for grown ups. Its sweet with a hint of devilish spices tickling from beneath. Its definitely a sexy fragrance and not a light, casual one. It might feel too strong to a few people, so if you re someone who gets headaches because of strong fragrances, stay away from this one. But if you enjoy strong, floral yet slightly musky fragrances, try this out. Also, there’s definitely a whiff of Amber in it. If you re layering the body cream and the mist, go light on the mist as it will definitely intensify the scent. The fragrance lingers on for almost 5 – 6 hours, which is pretty decent for a body mist. I have never really worn the body cream alone so I cant comment on the lasting power of its fragrance.

I love how good the Triple Moisture Body Cream feels on the skin, its takes a while to get absorbed into the skin but after that’s done, it feels light. Its very easy to go overboard with the cream and end up with greasy arms, so I suggest use a little. A little does goes a long way. Bath & Body works has come out with a new packaging for this one, the new ones have a deep red colour. I guess the formula is pretty much the same.

One cautionary advice now, this is strictly a winter fragrance or one meant for cooler climates. So if you decide to wear this and go out to run errands or take public transport during scorching heat, you will end up smelling like a rotten orange. This ONLY happens when sweat gets combined with either the body cream or the mist. I don’t know why and I can’t help it. That’s why Ive been waiting for it to get cool over here. I’ve perhaps worn it a couple of times that too when I had to stay in in an air conditioned room the whole time.

Overall Verdict: A

Recommendation: The Bath & Body Works Japanese Cherry Blossom Range is r ecommended for people who love warm, slightly musky & floral scent. The body cream will do wonders for your skin in winters and the mist is a great winter scent too.

Editors Note: OMG Kritika, you make it sound soo amazing for winters. Big cappucino, warm woollen caps and a romance novel- thats my kind of scent!
