LOTS OF THINGS! For instance, love and laughter are musts for me! This is the blog where I try to distinguish between needs and mere wants! There is, I realize, a fine line between the two. Hopefully, you'll help me in my quest to find what us gals really NEED! As part of my search, I love to do reviews for great companies and giveaways for my wonderful readers and talk about life in general!
I just hosted a review & giveaway for the jasmine + neroli roll-on perfume by KoDenmark. Now I have the privilege of
reviewing the matching jasmine neroli rose body oil. I’ve reviewed one other fine body oil on
this blog, and I really enjoyed it, at the time. No complaints, whatsoever! But I must say that Ko Denmark’s body oil has
the other one beat. It smells so good,
is easier to apply, absorbs better and the benefits are longer lasting. And
yes, it is a little more expensive than the other one. But obviously, it’s a case of the finer
ingredients costing a bit more, and the quality will be worth it. I also love the fact that the jasmine neroli rose perfume can be
layered with the body oil to make you smell absolutely delicious! (And no, I am not going to say which other body
oil I’m comparing it to. There is always
the ‘Search’ tool on my sidebar if you
really want to know!)
The distinctive scent of this Jasmine+Neroli+Rose perfume and body oil has gained some notoriety in Seattle, where Ko Denmark was established by Henriette Holst!
"Men have stopped customers on the street to tell them
they smell good! In Seattle, that says a lot, because men don't really
approach women here"
Amanda R (owner La Rousse boutique www.la-rousse.com )
Once you are acquainted with the one-of-a-kind scent that this body oil has,
along with the perfume, you won’t want to wear anything else. In addition to the Jasmine, neroli (orange
blossom) and rose, the
body oil also contains nourishing oils including apricot kernel oil, almond
oil, jojoba oil, vitamin e and others. I
think you could almost use it as a cooking oil.
(But please don’t…)
As always, there are never parabens, perfume, sulfates, mineral oil or
artificial colors in Ko Denmark products. It is vegan certified!
Ko Denmark body oil can be used on damp skin after a bath or shower. It can
also be used for massage. The oil locks in moisture and leaves skin looking and
You can purchase Ko Denmark products on several online sites, as well as on Ko Denmark's home site!
