Well, At Least She Shines

Lately I've been loving this kicky little lotion from Bath and Body Works that comes from their aromatherapy collection. It's called Orange Ginger and it's supposed to give you a renewed sense of energy... blah, blah, blah... but I just like the way it smells. It's different.

So after I showered the other day, I went out to Mark to ask him if he liked it. I stretched out my wrist and he drew a deep whiff... and slightly recoiled. I thought "Whoa! He must be breathing in the energy!"

Then the conversation goes on as follows:

I'm like, "Well, whatdya think?"

He said, "It's ok... Hey! Do you know what that smells like?"

Me, "Energy in a bottle?"

Him, "No... Pledge. Isn't that the stuff you spray on the piano? I mean.... it smells good and all. Just a little lemony, I guess. Soooooo, I like your hair today...."

Whatever. Obviously, I need a new smell. HA! Is there anything that you are loving right now? We'd probably do well to stay away from the citrus, though. ;)

Consider the source...Oh that Mark!

Lotion: Westin (like the hotel - not kidding) White Tea. You can order it online at westin-hotelsathome.com.

Perfume: Legacy by Coach. Really nice.

And, for the record, I LOVE that B&BW lotion. Pledge? Pshaw!

Well, this is still a fruity smell, but I bought some WM lotion (Vaseline brand, I think) in Cucumber Melon. David loves that scent with candles, so I figured he'd like this lotion...ad he does!

I like their aromatherapy line in jasmine vanilla. It's a little strong, but the smell is divine.

I'm a big fan of just basic vanilla, though. Or cranberry around the holidays!

Thanks for your prayers, Gayle! I just found out a few weeks ago that my hubby hates citrus lotion too. :)

LOL! Men!

I've been wearing a lemon-based scent from B&BW too! My son also told me I smelled like Pledge :)

I really like their Lavender Vanilla Aromatherapy stuff; however, it's calming, not energizing!

I've been wearing it since high school, just a couple of years ago (snort)....

Seriously, it is my scent. I put it on every day. I want my kids to associate my smell with happy memories, because smell is so evocative.

I love to pick up Baby Lucy and know that she smells like me!

My husband and I rarely agree on smells...I don't like what he does and he doesn't like what I pick out..
I could totally see him saying Pledge to something I liked.


We both like Strawberry Fizz body spray from Victoria's Secret.

Pledge? LOL!

Pledge...and he only mentions the piano in that statement....that's so funny and so Male. :)

Came over from Conversations...this post made me laugh, had to comment! Thanks for the smiles!

And as a fellow Alabamian, I'm tired of the rain...are we at the 40 day mark, yet?? :)
