    Default B&BW's One In a Million and Carnal Flower

    B&BW had all of their body cremes on special yesterday for $4.95 each, which is well under 50% off, so I popped in and bought the One in a Million body creme to go with my body spray. I used them both last night after I bathed, and I was amazed at how much the body creme (not the body) smells like Malle's Carnal Flower. It has that same eucalyptus note and a hint of the coconut. It is difficult to describe, but it presents as fresh, green, and a sort of watery---just beautiful. I do not know if the resemblance to Carnal Flower is intentional or not, but I would not doubt it.

    Anyway, for anyone who does not wish to take out a second mortgage on her home to buy Carnal Flower, please do test the One in a Million Body creme at B&BW to see what you think. I like both the body spray and the creme, but just as with their Magic in the Air fragrance and body creme, the body creme smells even better than the body spray.

    Yes, I nearly bought that one, it does smell good. They also have a JM Wood Sage and Sea Salt dupe cream in their aromatherapy line, called Sage & Cedarwood I think.

    You are welcome, N. Cal. It really surprises me that some body cremes smell even better than their body spray counterparts. Know you what? I found this to be absolutely true of Angel, too. Anyone who likes Angel definitely should try the body creme. It smells much better than either the EdP or EdT. Fancy that....

    Never tried the Sage and Cedarwood, cazaubon, but I will look for it next time I stop by. I like B&BW, but I found if I really want to take my time sniffing there, it is best to go first thing in the morning or perhaps an hour before they close. Otherwise, it is usually too crowded and hectic, and I end up constantly distracted from whatever it is I am trying to evaluate. I still have to sniff the new Spring/Summer releases.

    You are welcome, Primrose. I hope you love as much as I do. I have worn it two days and nights in a row which is unusual for me.

    Thank you for the suggestions! Also thank you for mentioning their sale of body washes several days ago, I definitely took advantage of that after seeing your post! Wish I had ordered One in a Million now... had it in my cart and took it out at the last minute, hah.

    ^^^ You are welcome. If they do not have a sale on it again before June, they will have everything reduced at the semi-annual sale in June. That is a good time to stock up on things, too.

    Cheers!
