An ode to lovely bath and body oils
Some of my favorites are:
Les Baines du Marais. This line comes from Paris, and is done in a Moroccan style. Truly unique. It comes in Fleurs d' Oranger, Jasmine and Musc Blanc and Rose Confiture. It is very beautiful, very fragrant, and very emollient. You can find it at www.beautyhabit.com or www.Aedes.com .
Another beautiful oil is Ligne St. Barth Coconut Oil. It is a little thicker and creamier than regular oil , and it gives great moisture to the skin. It smells like the warm breezes in the Caribbean --swoon! This gem is available at www.Aedes.com .
Tom Ford for Estee Lauder Azuree The Body Oil Spray. This is divine and I wish Estee Lauder would listen to the cries of many of my fragrance friends who long to have this in a perfume. The notes are listed as : Tahitian Gardenia Petals, Coconut, and Orange Blossoms are warmed with Vetiver, Sandalwood, and Myrrh. This really is as good as it sounds. It is on backorder just about everywhere but www.NeimanMarcus.com and www.EsteeLauder.com both carry it. You may have to wait though. The old faithful! Neutrogena Sesame Body Oil. This is a classic, tried and true. This one has been around forever and is still a favorite of mine. It can be found at just about any drugstore or at www.drugstore.com .
I love Chanel Oils. They are such high quality and they smell so divine. In the summer months I will wear Chanel oils in lieu of the parfums because the oils are so fragrant and they work beautiful in warmer weather. You can find chanel oils at www.gloss.com or www.Chanel.com .
Blogger will not let me post a graphic here of the lovely Carol's Daughter oil. GRRRRRR!
**************so just pretend it is here please****** it is in a tall bottle with floral floating around inside. It is truly lovely.************ Commence reading now*****just kidding! ****
I am in love with this new line of bath, body and hair delights. The Carol's Daughter line was started in a kitchen in Brooklyn by Lisa Price about 10 years ago. She got a celebrity cult following who put the word out and now everyone is in love with this awesome line . There is a litany of products for hairl, body, bath etc., and they come in the most delicious scents. Black Vanilla is my favorite this week. Other scents include Groove, Almond Cookie, Ectasy, Ocean and Mango Melange. You can try out these great and fun products at www.sephora.com . Oh and try her Love Butter. It is super for dry skin.
Jo Malone---ahhhhh. I love this woman, and I love her products. I have always been a fan of all things Jo Malone. Her bath oils are delicious. I also use these in lieu of her parfums in the summer months. French Lime Blossom and Lime Basil Mandarin are 2 of my favorite scents. For a bit more spicier scent I love Nutmeg Ginger or her unisex scent simply called 154. You can find the whole line of Jo Malone's products at www.gloss.com or www.saks.com . Last but certainly not least is the classic Youth Dew Bath Oil by Estee Lauder. To be honest, I have never been in love with Youth Dew Parfum. I find it to be too heavy for me, but I adore the classic Youth Dew Bath Oil. This little beauty can be found at www.gloss.com or www.EsteeLauder.com .
*Note this is the classic Youth Dew and not Youth Dew Amber Nude.
