Love at first sight… I’ve heard this often enough and while I am very, very much a romantic at heart..I fear this is one phrase that is greatly misunderstood… I can clearly remember my first encounter with my husband and whilst I did think he was ‘hot’, I don’t think that the concept of love at first sight was anywhere to be applied. What I do think though and is very much true to this day is that I thought he smelled very good indeed.
Now I have an aversion to strong smells… I get nauseous when I enter a heavily fragranced car or when someone with a heavy hand walks in an elevator but it is that same olfactory sense that helps me distinguish and appreciate the finer scents and smell that can be found both in nature and on my bathroom shelf 🙂
So anyway back to the story at hand..hubster still smells good no doubt to the stash he has which pretty much rivals my own. Sadly the same can’t be said for me… he comes to a wife that smells more often than not of garlic… mind you,not because I am warding of the vampire but simply because i put garlic into every dish I cook and I cook a lot 😛
Now since reeking of garlic is NOT a good thing especially when you have a husband who looks and smells good.. I have endeavored to at least combat the effects of garlic with my personal stash of body washes/gels/scrubs which currently stand at 23.. yes ladies I kid you not I have 23 ..not too bad really as with my ever-expanding size..I do seem to be using a good amount and bottles get finished quite regularly.
So now finally after that long-winded diatribe I can finally come to the reason for my post which I’m sure you have been patiently waiting for… For after a very long time… 16 years to be exact.. I have once again fallen madly in love… and once again it was with a smell.
I can rave enough about just how much I love this..by this I am referring to Caudalie The Des Vignes. I was introduced to this by the Amazingly sweet & lovely Sara, and I cant begin to thank her enough for this little piece of heaven as well as the other amazing things she sent me recently from France.
Now words can hardly describe the wonderful scents that practically clings to your skin and perfumes the air where it’s been but it’s not only about its awe-inspiring smell ..a lot of it has also to do with what it’s made up of or in this case not. This little wonder is soap free and contains no Parabens, Phenoxyethanol, Phatalates, Mineral Oil, and SLES.
As I said earlier… words can’t describe the Amazing way my hands smelled after… the kids love going into the washroom after I have a shower because they think I’ve been spraying perfume or air-freshener in there. 🙂 I’m usually quite generous with my bath gel’s and allow my daughter to use mine once in a way but this one has gone on to the no share list and lil’ girl is none to happy about it.
Seriously if I could find this in Malaysia, I’d buy as many as I could in the blink of an eye. But even SaSa that stocks on Caudalie does not have this on their shelves so it’ll be quite a while before I get a chance to restock hence I’m not sharing this one for now 😛
But if any one of you are off to France in the not to distant future..do look for this and give it a sniff… I’ve read so many online reviews of ladies who can’t seem to get enough of it. Price wise .. I cant be sure but i reckon it should be Euro 15- 20 ++ for a full size.
On that note.. I’m calling it a day for now. Do drop me a line and tell me what is/are the bath products that you can’t absolutely live without. I love discovering new things and cant wait to hear what works for you ladies 🙂
