Spring Scent Pick 2010 ~ Citrus ~


Citrus [si-truh s] noun – a common term and genus of flowering plants in the rue family, Rutaceae, originating in tropical and subtropical southeast regions of the world.

Get your citrus on with any of these…



From L to R clockwise:

EOS Lip Balm – Smooth Sphere in Lemon Drop SPF 15 ($3.29 @ – please welcome a new lemon flavor to the collection of balms. This other sphere is pretty worn down now, so this one arrived just in time.


THYMES Bath Salts in Ambersweet Orange ($5/2oz @ – I think the “art” of bath salts is vastly underrated. Being able to soften or scent bath water is an ancient practice and this new Ambersweet Orange is a mix of orange blossom, almond milk, vanilla mixed with sandalwood with a dash of nutmeg. Sounds like I’m making a cake.


C.O. BIGELOW Creamy Body Wash in Lemon & Orange Blossom ($12/8oz @ – I am really feeling this Lemon & Orange Blossom Collection. It’s crisp Italian Lemon and Orange Blossom with sheer watery Jasmine. The Eau de Parfum ($34.50/3.4oz) is my other pick of the collection. Reminds me of this one.


THE BODY SHOP Sweet Lemon Body Scrub ($20/7.75oz @ – the scrub looks like shredded lemon rind and contains genuine lemon seed oil. I’ve had to stop myself from tasting this one a few times now.


BATH AND BODY WORKS Fragrance Mist in Orange Sapphire ($12/8oz @ – their latest Signature Collection of Orange Sapphire was developed by some master perfumers in the biz so this is not just another scent. This sums it up perfectly – “Orange Sapphire is our creation of a sexy blood orange with a juicy top, tender heart and a sensual ending with a thread of warmth throughout the entire fragrance…”


SUAVE Refreshing Body Wash in Mango Mandarin ($3.49/12oz @ – this one is infused with mango and mandarin extracts and vitamin E and the price is so right on.

I love the Wallflower scent diffusers from Bath & Bodyworks! However, the electric diffusers have now yellowed. How can these be effectively cleaned without getting the plug-in section wet? What product takes away the stains left behind?


Hi Debi,
I've had the same problem. I don't think there is a way to clean them, besides using a wet cloth, without ruining the plug-in part. Yup we live in a disposable world!
