I know I know Christmas is already a distant memory, we have all settled back into the mundane and routine of our day to day lives.

But this year Christmas brought a little "added" excitement for me. Here in South Africa we do not have the Bath & Body Works franchise much to my despair, having travelled in the States I got used a shop virtually being on every block and I love love love the Vanilla body mist. So I guess it goes without saying that when a friend said she was headed for San Fransisco, I was the first to squeal with delight (for both of us of course).

I promptly scoured the Bath & Body Works site and saw that their Limited Edition Christmas Collection was already available, and with their 3 for 2 offer. I was a gonner hook, line and sinker! Trust me if I had more moola at the time I would have done way more damage.

Bath & Body Works Fine Fragrance Mist Review

If you really aren't familiar with the Bath & Body Works brand and you have the store's locally I urge you to splurge, the fragrances are such fun and the candles are too die for.

So here is what I got:

This fragrance is described as:
"A wintry sweet treat blend of fresh vanilla bean, warm caramel, sugar cookies, whipped cream and snowkissed musk"

What did I think?
I absolutely love the warm, rich and buttery undertones of this mist and I will have to find another way to supplement my addiction soon.

This fragrance is described as:
"A blend of Red Apple, Candied Orange, and Winter Rose Petals"

What did I think?
Initially, this mist is quite sweet but it soon settles to a lovely soft, sweet and rather sophisticated fragrance. I do enjoy wearing this on a hot summer day (a contradiction I know), it is light and feminine.

This fragrance is described as:
"A bright-and-early blend of frosted bergamot, mistletoe berry and snowkissed lavender"

What did I think?
This fragrance is of the "water fragrance" family, it's light, fresh and floral - a barely there, but a beautiful fragrance none the less. I love this one for bedtime, it's delightful!

The body mists tend to retail for between $14 - $16, and there are often specials like 2-for-1 or 3-for-2! This Christmas mists only come out once a year but do not be fooled- all of their fragrances are heavenly and you quickly find another 1, 2, or even 3 items for your shopping list.
