Think I'll go make a batch of cookies now.

I went to Bath and Body Works yesterday, and because I know the Nanda loves this scent, I picked up a bottle of Coconut Lime Verbena lotion to sniff. OMG, y'all. It's fantastic. I resisted the urge to slather myself down right then and there, and I didn't buy any because it's Christmas and I need to save those dollars for other people, but I have a feeling a Coconut Lime fest will be in my near future.

I also love their Warm Vanilla Sugar line of body products. I guess I've always been a fan of scents that smell like food, which should come as no surprise considering how much I love to eat. No freesia or plumeria or cherry blossoms for me. I'll be the girl smelling like baked goods.

"Do I smell cinnamon toast?"

"Nope. It's just me."

I once made chocolate chip cookie scented soap. I loved it and wanted to give them out as presents, until Rick informed me that most people, while enjoying the smell of a chocolate chip cookie, didn't necessarily want to smell like one. "Really?" I said. "But why not?" I believe he just looked at me blankly at that point.

Rick is a fan of citrus. He likes (what I consider to be) a strong orange or lemon fragrance. I don't particularly care for orange myself, but I know a lot of people do. When I was in nursing school, I used to sell some of my soaps and lotions to fellow students to make some extra cash. One of my best sellers was a blend of orange and vanilla that I called Orange Creamsicle. I couldn't stand the stuff myself, but other people really loved it.

The lime in Bath and Body Works' Coconut Lime Verbena is not overpowering. It's just enough to make you smell like a pina colada. Which is, in my opinion, a very good thing.

If you like pina coladas
And getting caught in the rain
If your not into yoga
If you have half a brain

If you like making love at midnight
On the dunes of the cape
Then I'm the one that you've searched for
Come with me and escape...
I LOVE Bath & Body Works! I currently have a Coconut Lime Verbena (sooo good!) and a Cherry Blossom lotion stashed in my bathroom. I can't do the warm vanilla sugar. It makes me want to nibble myself.

I love the Candy Cane scent they have too. Someone told me I smelled like cotton candy the other day.
