The Body Shop: Japanese Cherry Blossom

Hello you lovely lot! When it comes to products, I am a complete sucker for some pretty packaging! So when visiting my local Body Shop store, I was instantly drawn to their Japanese Cherry Blossom range as it radiated a romantic femininity. The soft pink of the packaging really reeled me in and the little decorative blossoms had me completely sold as I sprinted to the checkout. Inspired by a day in Kyoto, the delicate cherry blossom scent will have you completely captivated, and eager to jump on the next one-way plane to Japan. 

I must have more body butter in my house than knickers at this stage - I just love smothering it on my skin straight after I hop out of the shower, allowing it to sink in so I can fool people into thinking its my natural scent. Normally not a fan of florally aromas, the Japanese Cherry Blossom Body Butter proves to be a lot gentler, leaving your skin smelling fresh without coming off as too overpowering. Last year I made The Body Shop's Vineyard Peach range my go-to summer scent (and you can view that post here!) and although I am instantly transported to last summer as soon as I smell the faintest hint of peaches in the air, I wanted something a little less fruity this year.

Along with the body butter, I also picked up this florally fragrance mist, which I can just pop in my bag whenever I feel like freshening up! And how beautiful is this bottle though? I love that The Body Shop have really done justice to the delicate oriental theme with this design, as the pink proves girly and fun. Much like the body butter, the scent itself is quite subtle so you don't need to go through a lot to make it linger on your skin. I absolutely adore all the collections that The Body Shop stocks, and whether you're in a coconutty mood, want to smell delicious with Virgin Mojito, or just want to channel your inner Harajuku girl with Japanese Cherry Blossom (like me) there's always something to tickle your fancy!

  1. This collection is so kawaii! I love it! Perfect for floral scent lovers like myself!


  2. Ooh I sniffed this range for the first time at a Body Shop party during the week and loved it! I couldn't believe I hadn't noticed it before, so obviously I had to treat myself to a couple of bits and bobs x
