I’m a scent-aholic! I adore scents in perfume, body spray, air freshners…whatever. Soooo, I’ve decided that I want to start doing more perfume and cologne pieces (I swoon men’s cologne) whenever I feel the need or the urge and decided to create a new title for it and everything. Likey?
Anyway, the first scent is one from Bath & Body Works called Country Chic. I’m not sure how long it’s been around. I think they debuted the collection sometime this past summer, but I’m just now getting it. The reason I just recently bought it? Oh, you see, everytime I step foot in B&BW I always leave with enough lotions, body sprays, candles, and stuff to keep me smelling liking anyone you want meet or place you want to visit….for years. So, I made a conscious effort to afford that store like the plague for the past few month. Unfortunately, I had to go to the mall this past weekend to get my free birthday gift from Sephora and some other stuff that I didn’t need and told myself that I would just casually walk in B&BW to sniff the new fall candles and bounce empty-handed. Easy to say, hard to do.
So, one of the lotions I bought was Country Chic in the small bottle, just to give a whirl. After less than a week, I’ve finally decided do I love, like, or loathe it. Keep reading to find out.
I don’t what it is about walking into Bath & Body Works that makes you feel the need to buy something. Maybe it’s the friendly salespeople walking around eager to give you a bag and point you the amazing bulk deals that have to offer, the new collections that they are pushing at every turn, the 3 big Slatkin & Co. candles for $20, or the just pure aroma that exudes throughout the store. Whatever it is, it works on me.
I usually favor soft and clean scents, but there was something about this semi-heavy and very aromatic scent that made me purchase it to give a try. I’ve been wearing it for a few days now and it just dawned on me what Country Chic smells like. Potpourri! I’m not talking about all these different designer smelling potpourri. I’m talking about that old-school, fushia-color, flower induced potpourri that smells very…Country! A-ha, hence the name Country Chic. It all makes scents and sense…as to why I’m over this scent already. Just like that loud and obnoxious scent of potpourri, it’s too much for me and I just want it to die down and float away. Luckily, I only bought the travel-size lotion and this is exactly why.
TIP: When trying a new scent, buy the travel and/or small bottle first, because scents can drastically change outside the bottle and store.
Although I only bought the small bottle, it’s still practically full. So, I’m going to see if mi madre is interested in finding a home for it in her purse.
If you aren’t into heavy scents or the smell of potpourri, then I suggest you avoid this. It’s a pleasant, but not for me.
