NEW Dove Purely Pampering Nourishing Body Wash in Pistachio Cream with Magnolia
(retail: around $5.99, 24 oz)
I love that Dove always matches the color of the flip-top to the scent:
And I also love that this body wash has a very, very pale green color to it (one of my favorite colors ever):
To my nose, this body wash doesn't smell strongly of pistachio or magnolia, but I do detect elements of both in the background. There is some warm, sweet spice to this fragrance, but there's also a creaminess to it that I just adore. And there is also a soft floral background to this body wash that keeps it from veering too much into the "spicy zone". To me, it's a perfectly balanced fragrance and I actually like that it doesn't immediately make me think, "Oh look, it's pistachio!" or "Oh look, it's magnolia!" It's a tiny bit of both, but the resulting fragrance is warm, creamy, spicy, sweet and quite unique.
I never thought that I could love a Dove body wash quite as much as Pomegranate & Lemon Verbena, but I'm almost finished with this bottle and all I can think is, "I need more...now." Not only does it smell amazing, but the lather is so incredibly creamy (dare I say even creamier than my beloved Pomegranate & Lemon Verbena), and it's just a joy to use in the shower every day.
FINAL VERDICT: I don't think you have to be a gourmand fragrance fan to enjoy this new scent from Dove. If you generally gravitate toward warm, spicy fragrances, then I think you might fall in love with this one. It does't have a strong "nutty" note to it so if you're afraid it's going to smell like straight-up pistachios, and that's not your thing, you can rest assured that there's much more going on here. It's warm and spicy, yet creamy and floral-fresh at the same time. It's really one of the most unique fragrances I've come across at the drugstore level, and I'm just NUTS about it (see what I did there?). I highly suggest giving it a whiff the next time you're at the drugstore/big box store. It just might find its way into your cart, and I don't think you'll regret it.
Dove Nourishing Body Wash in Pistachio Cream with Magnolia is in stores now and in addition to body wash, this scent is also available in bar soap. I hope Dove decides to make a deodorant in this scent as well (fingers crossed).
