It happened again this morning. I walked into the local bagel shop for my lox-and-light-cream-cheese and the 20-something kid behind the counter gave me a couple of odd looks. I had just begun to wonder if I had forgotten to blend my blush or something when he said, "I don't mean to creep you out, and I hope you don't take this the wrong way, but ... well ... you smell great. What are you wearing?"
Now that's what I call letting aromatherapy work it. This is the third time in two weeks that a male of our species (different males, different demographics for each) has remarked positively on my scent. Each time, I was wearing Soaptopia's 50/50 Body Balm Black Spruce and Lavender, which also feels really great, thanks to shea butter, aloe vera gel, hemp seed, olive oil and other rich, yummy ingredients skin loves. But I think it's the spruce and lavender scent the guys respond to, so if you're looking to attract one or give one a gift, consider something with these oils in it (I also add a little orange essential oil to my mix, so you might give that a shot as well. I love the three distinct notes provided by the woodsy spruce, floral lavender and the citrusy orange oil.)
For those of you who care: Soaptopia body balm contains glycerin, but it's a vegetable-based glycerin, so no animals were sacrificed for this product.
