It’s not even Halloween yet but already people are thinking ahead to the holiday season. In fact it’s hard to walk into most stores these days without seeing something for the Christmas season on stores shelves. Honestly I think stores should wait until at least mid-November before putting out the holiday items. Pairing Christmas decor along side Halloween candy still seems “wrong”.
I’m all for holiday items. I love to make my home look and smell warm and inviting for the holiday season. I even go so far as to use hand soap that is scented to represent the season or holiday.
I think scent is a powerful thing. Just a simple whiff of something can bring back special memories or transport my mind to another time. That is why I love holiday scents. They remind me of special times with my family, as well as all the fond memories I have growing up.
Christmas is my favorite holiday, so anything that can evoke memories of Christmases past I want in my home.

I was sent all three scents to review.
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Alpine Mint Frost scented body wash. It smells like a candy cane. Or better yet a creamy candy cane (if that makes any sense). This moisturizing body wash is scented with “cool Winter mint” (as per the packaging). When I breath it in I can’t help but think of stockings, Christmas trees and candy canes. I truly love this scent. I’m sorry that it’s a limited edition because I would love to enjoy this year round, but then again I wouldn’t want to think about Christmas in the middle of July. So I can see why it’s a limited edition scent.
Parisian Berry Bliss has a very strong berry scent. It kind of reminds me of a rich, red wine scent. It’s scented with red Winter berries, but it doesn’t necessarily remind me of Winter or Christmas. The scent could work just as well during the summer time, especially because berries are very much in season. None the less it’s a lovely, invigorating scent.
Venetian Vanilla Spice is for the vanilla lover. It really smells like vanilla – a rich, creamy vanilla. Vanilla is often an ingredient in holiday baking, so I can see the connection with the holiday season. It’s a rather intoxicating scent.
I love how these scents fill the air when you shower or bathe. It’s so much nicer then just plain soap.
Not only do these body washes smell amazing they also clean your skin, give it a touch of moisturizer, and rinses off cleanly without leaving any kind of residue.
All three of these body washes would make great stocking stuffers for the holiday season. You could also include them in a homemade gift basket (such as a “spa” gift basket), or a care package for a college student or shut in.
If you enjoy the scents be sure to pick up a few bottles because these are limited edition. Once the holiday season is gone so are these lovely scented body washes.
What do you think about the new scents? Do you think you’ll try them out?
