Everyone has that one favorite scent, one that you just wish you could find a way to bottle it up and smell like it at all times. Vanilla, roses, freshly cut grass, spearmint, everyone’s got one. What’s mine? Jasmine. When I was a child we used to have night blooming jasmine right outside our windows; when summer came and we slept with the windows wide-open, that rich, jasmine scent became intoxicating. For years I’ve believed it is impossible to replicate that jasmine fragrance without smelling fake, like some chemicals with a touch of floral. Finally, after years of searching, my dreams came true; I stumbled upon Korres Jasmine Body Butter at my local Sephora. It was love at first sniff.
This lotion is very thick, very creamy, hydrating, and non-greasy. It’s so thick I can hold it upside down without it budging! You only need a little, and a tube of this can last for quite a while. Even though it’s $29 for an 8 oz. tube, you definitely get your money’s worth. While this lotion does smell like Jasmine, it also has a sweet undertone, giving the scent an almost vintage vibe. If jasmine’s not really your thing, Korres has plenty of other fragrances; Basil Lemon, Fig, Japanese Rose, Vanilla Guava, and even Yogurt. I’ve yet to smell that last one, and honestly, I’m not sure that I want to. This body butter really is perfect for every weather, as I’ve found other lotions to be better for summers of winters, but not both. Korres also makes great Lip Butters, they’re very moisturizing and sheer. One of the colors is even called Jasmine! If interested, you can buy the body butter here and the lip butter here. Happy shopping! 🙂
