Hey Hey Perfume Posse. It must be getting pretty chilly up there in the Northern Hemisphere. What helps me get through the chilliest weather? Bubble Baths! Well, they help me through EVERY weather but I find them particularly warming and comforting in the cold. I’m not sure how many of you even have a bath in your home nowadays? It’s certainly becoming a luxury item in the current crop of apartments being built in Australia.
I thought we could chat about our favourite products to pop into the bath today. As you may know I have a ridiculous amount hoarded here. If the apocalypse happens I am certainly prepared till doomsday to continue bathing in bubbles.
Bubble Baths for Winter Warming Goodness
Here is my current line up of bath products. Not all of them create bubbles but they do all smell fabulous and add to the aquatic adventure.
Elizabeth Arden Sunflowers Shower Gel
Haven’t opened it yet but I love the bright yellow bottle so much that I’ve put it on display. Very excited to find out if this super cheapie smells good.
Robert Piguet Bandit Shower Cream
This bottle seems to have been going forever. If you like the original dark smoke filled leathery excesses of Bandit then the shower gel will floor you with its glamorous beauty. I don’t know why I savour this bottle so much there are three more back ups waiting.
Lalique Hommage Shower Gel
Old fashioned masculine central. A little bit Aramis reminiscent but not really. Is the bubbliest, only need the smallest amount, and smells up the whole apartment with its yummy goodness.
Penhaligon’s Blenheim Bouquet Bath Oil
I think this is my third refill of the vintage bottle. I bought it on eBay (with two half or less full others) and the stopper was stuck fast. It had never been used because of it and was in its original packaging, decades old. It leaves my skin feeling absolutely gorgeous, so good.
Olympic Orchids Amber Labdanum Bath Oil
I sing the praises of this lavish beauty regularly here on Perfume Posse. No better starting point for layering amber perfumes. Addictive and luscious. Priced so well too.
LUSH Rose Jam Shower Gel
When I mourned the last of my Rose Jam an APJ contributor and friend sent me this enormous 500ml bottle (thanks Kate). I loved it before but now it is a super special roses moment every time. Love layering rose scents of this sweet jammy shower gel that creates perfect Bubble Baths.
Annick Gioutal Encens Flamboyant Shower Gel
You want to create the perfect base for your incense fragrances? This is the one. It adds a shimmering depth and sparkle to all of them.
Bath and Body Works Rainkissed Leaves
Want to smell like you’re in the middle of a warm rain shower in the garden? You’ll love this super cheapy. Creates excellent bubbles and a base for all those green or chypre fragrances. Even if I wear no fragrance my skin is left with a very soft green floral sheen.
Guerlain Shalimar Shower Cream
You want top feel like a million dollars as you sink grateful into steaming hot Bubble Baths? Shalimar is the answer, another one that fills the whole apartment with scent and makes me swoon.
Annick Goutal Musc Nomade Shower Gel
You want to add a range of animal and laundry musks to the way you smell? A this coating of gorgeous plush and extravagant muskiness? You can’t do much better than Musc Nomad at any price point. I got mine at the discounters for a song.
L’Artisan La Chasse aux Papillons Shower Gel
This was a gift and I love it whenever my day has a white floral adventure coming. It’s a clean, creamy, refreshing, sparkling white flower that will lift your Bubble Baths spirits from the frosty doldrums in moments.
