Haul: Bath and Body Works Italian Piazza Collection

IMG_5903

The Italian Piazza Collection was a huge collection with lots hand soaps, body lotions, shower gels, and candles in a wide range of scents inspired by Italy.

Mandarin Blossom: Lightly scented with Italian mandarin, honeysuckle and crushed mint.

Citrus Fig: Lightly scented with zesty kaffir limes, fresh figs and peach blossoms.

I got the Mandarin Blossom hand soap because I wanted something that smelled like oranges and I got the Citrus Fig hand soap because it smelled clean yet fruity with a hint of ocean. It kinda’ reminds me of Tropical Rainforest, actually (which I’ve hauled here).

Rome Honeysuckle Amore: Take a romantic stroll through the cobblestone streets of Italy’s most glamorous city with pink honeysuckle, golden peach & cyprus woods.

Again, while waiting in line at the cashier, there was a whole pile of travel-sized body lotions in the scent Rome Honeysuckle Amore. Again, I couldn’t resist so I bought it and started using it right then and there. Rome Honeysuckle Amore is a light floral that starts off with a burst of citrus (oranges, maybe?) and dries down to a clean green scent with a hint of sweetness and musk. By all accounts, I should strongly dislike this but I actually love it! The packaging is cute, the lotion itself is actually a light pink, and the scent itself is quite lady-like.

Gelato: A creamy, sweet blend of raspberry and strawberry with an effervescent sugar-spun finish form the perfect Italian indulgence. Bravo, Bravo!

Limoncello: Raise your glass to this fragrance inspired by Italy’s beloved drink, Limoncello, with its notes of Sorrento lemons, cane sugar and a hint of lemon zest! Drink in the beauty of Italy!

Espresso Bar: Stop and savor the aromas of roasted espresso beans and sweet vanilla froth like the Italians, who never take their coffee “to go.

Honestly, I just got these babies because they looked stupid cute!

Gelato has a faint sweet smell of strawberry ice cream. The throw on Gelato is very weak as well. Limoncello smells delicious, like a starburst or something. Limoncello literally makes my mouth water every time I sniff it. Espresso Bar truly does smell strongly of freshly roasted (brewed? pressed? grounded? I dunno, I’m not a barista) coffee beans.

Speaking of Italy (See what I did there? Slick, eh?) I’m loving the direction they are taking in the second season of Da Vinci’s Demons. Don’t wanna’ see this show to go the way of The Borgias or Rome which is why I’m doing my part and calling attention to it here. Admit it, every time you read Limoncello, you think Da Vinci’s Demons too.
