Okay I have to admit when I first heard about the new scent from The Body Shop I was a little unsure. What exactly does a poppy smell like? Or a smoky one? Since I couldn’t imagine it myself I knew I had to check out The Body Shop Smoky Poppy scent.
This is a limited edition scent and is available in all of the classic products, including Body Butter, Shower Gel, Body Scrub, and more. The Body Shop explains the scent as ‘Enriched with real, hand-picked poppy flowers from the Ankara region of Turkey. This sensual and indulgent range is infused with a seductive, euphoric scent that will leave you longing for more.” You can read more about the new scent here at thebodyshop.ca and check out the full range of products.
Although that seemed confusing at first it actually hits the spot just right. The scent is soft, warm, and calming to me. I liked the smell of it at first but as time went on and I kept wearing it I ended up really liking it, and perhaps even loving it. It has a subtle baby-powder type of scent, with a real softness and light tone. It’s feminine and delicate but still keeps it scent for a long time. It definitely has a romantic hint to it and I can totally agree with the seductive and indulgent description. It reminds me of the Vera Wang Princess perfume, which is a classic feminine scent.
The Body Butter is super moisturizing and creamy, and I love putting it on before bed. It’s soothing, smooth, and super softening. I love all Body Butters but this one has a really gentle feel to it. The Shower Gel is great for a relaxing and calming experience, and overall every product in this line is really great.
If you haven’t checked out this new scent you definitely should, since it is limited edition it won’t be around forever!
