Ode to "Sparkling Green Apple"

Published:

How I lone for Bath and Body Works "Sparking Green Apple"

How perfectly wonderful it would be if BBW brought back Sparkling Green Apple Body Lotion, and Shower Gel.  My favorite scent is gone and it's like a part of went with it.  It was perfect and pleasant.  Ladies you know what I'm talking about. 

A friend told me once it reminded her of a sweet tropical shrub in the NC mountains they called "sweet bubbies."

It's been discontinued for years, and I've been burnt by sellers on Ebay and other places who has claimed to have it but all I received was something somebody concoted in their kitchen with the label.

It was my Calgon time.  The scent of it just made me feel so good.  Perfume was not necessary.  You can walk into a room and people would say - "you smell good" and all you did was shower and use lotion. 

I don't know what it is about that Green Apple Scent but BBW are the only people who got it right and much as I have asked them over the years they won't bring it back even when they bring back other favorites for a short period of time.

It was after Christmas one year and my daughters had loaded me up on BBW's Sweet Pea.  At work, I walked into a friends office and she had Sparkling Green Apple on her desk and I said OMG my daughters gave me loads of Sweet Pea but I'm not fond of it.  My friend was like "I love Sweet Pea, you want to trade" and that's what we did and I've been a Sparkling Green Apple lover since. 

Every once in a while I'll send them a letter and I declare last night I almost started a petition.  So I'm whinning and venting now over my lost love of BBW Sparkling Green Apple.

Your welcome.
I do not know if it makes a difference but when purchasing the essential oil they have synthetic and natural oils. May want to check on that. Maybe those you were buying from could have been using synthetic oil in their recipe as it may be less expensive.
Good luck with the recipe.
