Kiehl’s introduces a sensorial journey around the world through the launch of Aromatic Blends, a scented body collection. Each scent composition is representative of an exotic location where Kiehl’s sources its fair trade ingredients for various formulations. Vanilla and Cedarwood from Uganda, Fig Leaf and Sage from Provence, Orange Flower and Lychee from Morocco, Nashi Blossom and Pink Grapefruit from Japan. The Aromatic Blends scents are formulated with fewer ingredients than traditional scents so they’re cleaner and more representative of the underlying main ingredients.
The Aromatic Blends line has three products: skin softening body lotion, skin softening body cleanser and fragrance.
The Keihl’s Skin Softening Body Lotion is formulated without silicones but instead uses Squalene and Crprylic/Capric Triglyceride to provide and lock in moisture without leaving a greasy residue. The body lotion delivered enough hydration that lasted through an entire summer day. My best results came when I did an entire body application immediately after bathing and towel drying, then a second application to my elbows, knees and feet after a few minutes. The fragrance in the lotion is subtle yet distinctive. Suggested Price $26
The Kiehl’s Skin Softening Body Cleanser provided light lather and did a good job of cleansing without over drying my skin. If you are used to fruity/sweet smells in the shower, mix it up a bit and try Fig Leaf and Sage — it’s great in the evening. The Orange Flower and Lychee is awesome in the morning, a nice way to wake up. Suggested Price $24
The Fragrances are simple and clean – perfect for summer. I tried the Vanilla and Cedarwood which started out very sweet but after an hour faded quite a bit and I was left with a hint of woody spiciness. For my next application of the Vanilla and Cedarwood fragrance, I layered with a citrusy fragrance after about an hour – amazing! Starting at $40 for 30ml.
All Kiehl’s Aromatic Blends products are made from naturally–derived ingredients and formulated without parabens, silicones and sulfates. This collection is a great way to experience a myriad of exotic scents. Try mixing and matching the various scents to create your own unique blend or try all the items from a particular scent to create a more intense experience. Either way, you should definitely experience Kiehl’s sensorial world tour.
