I’ve never been a huge fan of Bliss products. Many people are totally obsessed with this brand. I never understood their fascination but then I realized I’ve only sampled a few of these products. Why? Because they’re expensive and I think the packaging is ugly. Anyway, I received a sample of Blood Orange + White Pepper Body Butter.
First, things first. The scent is wonderful. I’ve been eating blood oranges daily recently and this butter smells like the real deal. Blood oranges are the bomb. Bliss’s Body Butter is sweet, citrusy orange with just a little of a grapefruit edge. It has the faintest hint of pepper which provides just a bit of spiciness. It is a simple and sophisticated fragrance. However, it isn’t that strong and really doesn’t linger on the skin too long. This could be seen as a good or bad thing. It won’t compete with your everyday eau and it just might add something to it. It would wear wonderfully with citrus fragrances like Moschino I Love Love and Tocca Stella. It would wear wonderfully with spicy fragrances like YSL Opium or Estee Lauder Cinnabar. I wish the fragrance was a little stronger in this body butter. The texture is very nice. It is smooth and super nourishing without being greasy. It absorbed very quickly into my skin making it instantly soft. My skin was left nourished until next washing. It is a very nice product. I don’t know if I will buy it. It’s pricey. Good body butters can be found at any price but I do love the scent. I just don’t think the scent lingers long enough for that large price tag.
Available at Bliss Spas.
