Yummmm, I’ll take two dozen please. Oh, would you like one too?? The scent of almond and coconut makes my mouth water. I know I’ve told you several times that I don’t like foodie or gourmand scents. I lied. Well, I didn’t lie, but can I make an exception? With the Laura Mercier Gourmande Body and Bath Collection, I can let myself indulge in a guilt free, calorie free treat!
The scent is not only delectable but a little decedent too. Not done properly, the strong aroma of these two scents could be overpowering, but Laura manages to hit just the right note.
Almond Coconut Milk Créme Body Wash ($36) – a deliciously scented blend of extracts. This body wash is gentle, leaving the skin beautifully scented and feeling fresh and moisturized. The4 luscious lather is so pampering!
- Vitamins A, E, F, B5
- Macadamia Nut Oil & Shea butter
Almond Coconut Milk Body Butter ($35) – Shea butter, Illipe butter, Grape Seed Oil, and Jojoba Esters work to moisturize and hydrate while Honey and Aloe Vera soothe skin. Armed with these good-for-your-skin ingredeints, this ultra rich moisturizer absorbs fairly quickly and hydrates all day. The scent comes on stromg but mellows with time. By layering the body wash and body butter this scrumptious scent will follow you all day.
Almond Coconut Milk Honey Bath ($40) – a dedadent honey bath with foaming bubbles! Laura is fond of pampering bath products and created Honey Bath to treat the senses as well as soften and condition the skin. This bath product is formulated with Vitamins A and E, Rosemary, Lavender, Thyme, Geranium, and Vinca Major extracts for an amazing scent the envelopes you–along with the bubbles of course! Honey and Sunflower Seed extract and Glycerin soothe and soften the skin. It even comes with a wooden honey dipper!
Other products available in the line are Almond Coconut Milk Scrub, Almond Coconut Milk Hand Créme and Laura Mercier Almond Coconut Eau de Toilette. Don’t be afraid of the Eau de Toilette, you won’t smell like a cookie or a coconut cake, I promise! This is not your average Bath and Body Works scent. It also has jasmine, rosewood, ylang-ylang, vanilla, tonka, heliotrope and musk in the blend, rendering it more suited to the sophisticate than the foodie. If Almond Coconut doesn’t suit you, there are three other scents to choose from; Créme Brûlée, Fresh Fig and Créme de Pistache.
