Howdy, all you lovely Posse folks, and happy Monday! This weekend as I was sorting/cleaning out/streamlining some of my overflowing stuff, I came across a few bottles of shower gel that I’d forgotten I had. I squealed in delight and deposted them in the bathroom double-quick.
I used to NOT like shower gel; it struck me as a waste of money as it went down the drain, and rarely gave you a decent fragrance bang for your buck. But as the years have gone by, and I’ve accumulated little bottles of this and that over time, I am enjoying it more and more. If you’ve already got it, why not use it?
I’ve most recently been using Molton Brown’s Orange and Bergamot, Ylang-Ylang and Pink Pepperpod, and my DH really enjoys their Black Peppercorn body wash (got him one of those cute little ornament baubles during the holidays). I like several of the Neutragena ones, a couple from Jo Malone, and for the spring and summer have enjoyed Red Flower’s Spanish Gardenia.
I remember loving Prescriptives Calyx (now Clinique) shower gel in years past, but don’t think it is widely available anymore, more’s the pity. If I had known it was going to be going away, I would’ve considered buying a gallon or two of it. I know our dear Musette was quite fond of that one as well.
There are several more that I’d love to try, especially Armani Prive’s Bois d’ Encens one, which I stumbled onto online at Neiman Marcus recently and I think might be fairly new. But at $50 for a 6.7-ounce bottle, I can’t quite pull the trigger, although that’s not really off-the-charts outrageous. I do wish there was a way to sample it or buy a smaller size just to test it; I do love that scent and think the shower gel could be pretty heavenly, but also know it could be iffy.
So what about you? Do you swear by a certain shower gel (or three)? Or are you happiest without scent in your bath or shower?
