I've been out shopping for bath gels. I was looking for a pump bottle (easier in the shower) of some nice scent: lavender, jasmine, sandalwood, almond, rose, lemon verbena, gardenia or vetiver. Not that picky, just some wonderful scent. In a pump bottle.
And what I found is all kinds of bath gels with food scents - strawberry, cinnamon pumpkin, vanilla, coconut, melon, mango, banana smoothie, chocolate truffle, daiquiri, cucumber mint, orange, apple, grapefruit, peach etc. Even the floral scents were mixed with food: lavender/ vanilla, rose/ red currants.
It makes me cranky. I don't want to smell like a banana smoothie. I want to smell like a gardenia or a rose. And not a rose with red currants. Maybe a rose with lavender.
Is this phenomenon somehow related to the American obesity problems?
I finally found a Caswell Massey almond scented one. I know, I know - almonds are a food, but the almond scent isn't food-like, so it works for me.
