Food-scented beauty products: yay or nay?

Food-scented beauty products: Yay or nay?

Beautiful with brains says: while I prefer fragrance-free products, I actually like food-scented ones, especially if they smell like cherry or citrus fruits. Sooo yummy! It’s only when the scent is too sweet and overpowering that I dislike it. Oh, and I hate apple scents in beauty products, which is weird because I like apples and the way they smell, but just not on my skin lol.

    • Shusheshe, mango smells wondefully! I agree with you, I prefer products to be unscented but if they have to have a fragrance, then it’d better not to too strong or it just puts me off.

    • Vonvon, when it comes to food scents then I love fruity ones too. Chocolate, cookies scents can smell lovely too as long as they’re neither too strong nor too sweet.

    • Stavroula, The Body Shop Coconut Body Butter is my favourite body cream too. Sooo moisturizing and smells wonderful! :)

    • Celine, I agree. Scents should be subtle or they can be very offputting. Although fragrance-free is always better. :)

    • Makeup morsels, I agree, synthetic food scents are awful! But if you manage to make them right, which is not an easy task, they smell delicious!

    • Fabulessbeauty, I agree that some scents are really disgusting. There should be more fragrance-free products around.

    • Paris, I prefer scents on my body too. The skin on the face is more delicate so fragrance-free products are better for it imo. :)

    • Tammy, I agree with you. I tried some vanilla scents that were too strong or sweet or both and they didn’t smell good at all. But when they are done right, they smell really delicious.

    • Marguerite, sono d’accordo sul fatto che dipenda dal prodotto. Alcuni hanno un odore veramente troppo forte e nauseante.

  1. Yes, please.
    Body lotions and potions? Yes, yes, yes!
    Face products? Not so much, but, incidentally, I love the one that you have on your picture – the Garnier toner for normal and combination skin.

    I like edible scents in general – the warmer ones: coconut, almond, cinnamon, and the citrusy ones (not necessarily citruses themselves, my brain groups them together based on… something :D ): oranges, mangoes, passionfruit, raspberries, cherries, peaches, ginger.

    The strange thing is: I even like cucumber-scented cosmetics, and I hate them and their scent when they’re on my table.
    And also the scented cosmetics is how I got into raspberries (Palmolive shower gel) after hating them for the first 15 years of my life (that and, later on, Nutella, raspberry and milled Plazma cookies pancakes, yum!). I love them everywhere now.

    Not that keen on apples, even though they are my favourite fruit, honey, milk and overly sweet vanilla.

    • Ana lol. You know, I’ve used that Garnier toner and couldn’t stand the smell lol. But I’m glad you like it. :) But I don’t like apple scents either even though I like apples and I love anything citrus. :)
