    Default Body Shop Perfumes - Old and discontinued

    Vanilla (circa 2004) - fruity boozy vanilla

    Vanilla (circa 2006) - sheer fruity floral vanilla

    Lemon Tea (circa 2004) - Lemons in Italy are sweeter and less tangy, giving a perfume that is citrusy yet gentle and invigorating. This is combined with fresh crushed leaves, bergamot, and green tea to create this breath of fresh (Sicilian) air. Top: Lemon, Orange and Bergamot. Heart: Lemon Tree Leaves, Floral Rose, Black Tea, Green Tea and Mate. Base: Woody, Cedar, and Musk.

    Dewberry (circa 2005) - fruity berries with a touch of musk.

    Magnolia (circa 2004) - A classic sparkling floral fragrance that combines magnolia flowers and leaves from China with muguet lemon blossom and white lily

    Passion Flower (circa 2004) - A bright sultry, fruity floral fragrance that combines passion fruit oil from Peru with redcurrant, passionflower, grapefruit and jasmine

    Indian Gardenia (circa 2004) - A lush floral fragrance from India that combines the romantic perfumes of gardenia, jasmine and mimosa with neroli and crisp orange. Also contains a spice note - probably cumin. (This is the predecessor to the new Gardenia)

    Dewberry (circa 198x) - deep sweet forest berries over patchouli and musk.

    Heartfelt (circa 198x)

    Leap (circa 198x)

    Mostly Musk (circa 198x) - smooth woods and musk. Sandalwood, cedarwood, musk,

    Chypre (circa 198x) - classic chypre: bergamot, patchouli, sandalwood, oakmoss

    Visionary (circa 198x)

    Black Raspberry Chocolate (circa 198x)

    Rose Musk (circa 198x) - more musk then rose. Deep musk, black rose, sandalwood, incense.

    Vanilla (circa 198x) - rich foody vanilla essence oil (very different from Vanilla (circa 2004) and Vanilla (circa 2006)!) I have all three + formulations.

    Exotic (circa 198x) -

    Cucumber (circa 198x) - the entire cucumber from the watery aqueous centre to the sharp green skin. Milky.

    Tobacco Flower EDT (circa 198x) -

    Cotton Fresh EDT (circa 198x) -

    Thank you!

    Thank you for this list. Unfortunately I think it might get longer. I liked reading about the older scents and I remember liking a lot of them.

    Thank you, MysteryFemme.

    There are many that I wish were still available... sadly TBS seems more focused on mediocrity than originality.

    Raspberry (circa 198x) - sweet, fruity raspberry scent

    Raspberry! I have heard of this one but never smelled it. I guess back when they were still in production, there were so many and they were all so excellent I thought they would be around forever. If I knew they were going the way of the dodo, I would have bought all of them.

    Raffles - 1980s...men's fragrance which I was also very partial to! Unfortunately I can't remember what it was like, but it was by far my favourite TBS men's fragrance.

    Winter Dew -- also 1980's, was discontinued in 1995, I think. I bought every last drop of the oil at my local store when it was discontinued, and I still have quite a bit! It was a clean, aquatic scent, fresh without being sour, fruity, or overly floral. The bath beads were a deep blue, and a promotional brochure in the early 90's boasted that Winter Dew was the top selling fragrance in Saudi Arabia. (the things I remember!)
