Bath and Body Works New American Summer Signature Body Care Collection has launched online and I was fortunate to grab three out of the five fragrances to try and review now before the online orders ship. Today I will talk about the Beachfront Blanket fragrance.

Let's talk about the packaging first. I am in love with the soft summer-themed colors chosen for each of these five scents in this collection. I suspect you will love them too and they will sell out quickly.
I have the Beachfront Blanket currently in the Shower Gel form and this bottle is a pearlized clear color with a clear colored gel inside. The nameplate area consists of raised textured lines and a summer-like font. A beach umbrella is a motif on the lower right side of the bottle at the end of a mauve-pink stripe.
On the back of the bottle, and online, the scent notes read:
Beachfront Blanket - A transportive blend of fresh white linen, summer sunrays & soft musk
When I got this Shower Gel on Wednesday, I gave it a quick sniff and thought it smelled sort of familiar to me. If you love Bath and Body Works as I do, you too probably have a huge collection of various fragrances from years of purchases and sometimes they all start to melt together in your scent brain. We know they do re-purpose scents to fit the current themes they are offering so it wouldn't be unheard of to get a fragrance that we have had before. Because I don't have a body cream or mist to try on me, I was left to wash my hands with this Shower Gel to try and nail it down.
When I washed them again, for like the tenth time today, I think I figured out what this scent is...or what it reminds me of. And fortunately, I still have some Body Sprays to double-check my conclusion with.
Cotton Blossom. Scent notes of grass, sun-dried linen accord, mandarin blossom, jeans accord, peony, cotton, musk and baby powder.I grabbed more of the Cotton Blossom spray during a Semi-Annual Sale and my use for them is not as body care. I like to refresh my closets with a few sprays of it every so often.
Try. Buy. Or Let Go By.
I would recommend you try this fragrance if you love a clean, fluffy cotton towel fragrance. And I look forward to hearing all of your thoughts on how this fragrance was for you!
