Smell like a man!
Veronique Ouellette from Booberry Cosmetics had told me about her “Campfire” scented body cream and I was really intrigued by the idea of smelling like burnt wood. So, I recently paid her a visit at her studio and came home with an armload of treats.
We sat down and after a short little interview (coming up next week) she got down to work making the Campfire body butter from scratch in her cute studio/apartment.
I’ve used homemade creams before and they usually leave you feeling pretty greasy but the Campfire keeps you dry and smooth. Oh, and did I mention it smells like a fucking campfire!? Well, it does and it’s awesome.
As most of you know, I love the smell of cedar and wood. So, Veronique made me a new body spray that has cedar, rosemary, cypress, dirt and pine oils in it. It literally smells like a shovel full of forest earth. I love camping and the combination of the campfire cream and the forest floor body spray make me feel like I’ve spent a week in the deep woods.
And if the body spray is too much for you, maybe the Forest Floor soap is more up your alley. It smells very similar to the spray but a little milder.
I’ve been using a combination of all three products over the last two weeks and feedback has been great….. although one person told me I smelled like salad greens…..
It’s nice to see someone making bath and body products that are a little less fruity and floral and more natural and subtle. I’ll definitely be buying a little trio pack of these items for Christmas gifts this year.
Check out her Etsy shop for more products and be sure to visit her at this years Puces Pop, here in Montreal over the Holiday season.
