After the MAC Studio Talk class on Saturday, I wandered around the Bloomingdale’s fragrance department, and this very cute jar of Annick Goutal Petite Cherie body cream ($95 for a 6.7 oz jar) caught my eye.
Cute, yah? I love the etched leaves and flower, the font (LOL, I’m a font nerd) and the lil’ angels at the top.
Petite Cherie body cream smells like a just-bitten, fresh ripe pear. It has notes of fresh cut grass, which complement the pear and keep its sweetness in check.
I think I like the cream more than Petite Cherie Eau de Toilette Spray, which has more dominant peach and vanilla notes on my skin. The spray is a bit too candy sweet for me.
The scent of the cream lasts for a couple hours. I tested it on my hands in the store, and it was still present two hours later. It feels rich without leaving a greasy film.
I would totally be on this if it weren’t for the super steep price. The 6.7-oz jar would last quite a while, but $95 is a lot to spend on a body cream.
Still, give the scent a sniff if you get the chance. If you like pear, I think you might like it.
Oh! Annick Goutal also makes a full line of face and body care products called Splendide Skin Care, with similarly cute packaging.
The 14-item line features cleansers, toners and moisturizers with an “active rose serum,” ranging from $48-145. I snagged a few samples, but I think I like these more for how they look than anything else. Aren’t they pretty? I’d like to put all of these jars and bottles on a mirrored tray set on top of my vanity, right next to a crystal vase filled with tea roses.
We made it to Tuesday, ladies! I feel so much better today than I felt yesterday. It’s amazing what a few hours of rest can do for your mental health!
Of course, now I’ve got a lot of catching up to do at work. If I have time tonight, I want to visit the MAC counter to see Girl About Town Lipstick once more. Whatcha got going on today?
