Smell the Smells…

I am always marveling over the myriad scents of French body washes. Weird, right? I feel like we have nowhere this variety, or quality, in the U.S.

First, you’re attracted by the bright colors. Ooh.

Then, cracking open the bottles, the scents, oh, the scents! Aah.

Orange flower, tiare, fig, cherry blossom and almond, Moroccan mint tea, guava, passion fruit, madeline, caramel. There’s also apricot, verbena, vanilla and quince, rhassoul and jasmine flower. Must I really go on?

Next time you’re in a French supermarket, take about 20 minutes and smell them all!
