There are certain scents that instantly feel a little more premium and remind us of products that our purses can only dream of. For me, the scent of pistachio reminds me of Laura Mercier hand cream; the luxurious nutty base leaves a delightful and truly edible scent on skin that’s almost worth the equally luxurious price point. The clever people at Dove have clearly identified this, adding to their Purely Pampering range of nourishing body lotion and body wash a Pistachio and Magnolia scent. Both variants provide a rich nutty base with a delicate and comforting tone of magnolia oil, combined to bring a little more luxury to your bathroom.
Quite a departure from their normal scent combinations, this definitely screams indulgence and offers a relatively unusual scent from a mainstream brand. Dove are thinking outside of the box… The body lotion is rich and creamy, providing a hit of moisture and relief for dry skin with a delicate note of pistachio. You’re not left smelling like you’ve been rolling around in a peanut butter factory, but just left with an uplifting scent of pistachio that works well with the traditional ‘Dove’ undertones. The body wash is equally as comforting, but when it’s lathered you definitely get more of the creamy undertones that are easily identifiable as Dove. Priced only £2.49 for the Body Wash and £3.99 for the Body Lotion, these little products are a great way of injecting a little luxury into your routine.
The Pistachio and Magnolia lotion and body wash are available now from Boots stores.
