Laura Mercier Almond Coconut Milk Body Products

Laura Mercier bath and body products are among the most decadent that I have ever used. They remind me of the old Tutti Dolci products that I used to adore, especially the Honey Bath that was a favorite of mine. The Almond Coconut Milk line of products remind me of dessert and Italy more than a coconut that is associated with the islands. This is a perfect fragrance to use to relax and unwind at the end of the day or before a cuddle session. The Laura Mercier line of body products are more about creaminess and luxury than big bubbles or foam. This is the pinnacle of luxury bath and body collection. "Almond Coconut Milk is a warm fragrance rich with powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and a hint of cinnamon. Includes notes of vanilla mousse as well as vanilla meringue".

The products of the collection...

Can be worn alone or mixed with any of her Bath & Body product.

I have played with these products at the Laura Mercier conunter in bloomingdales. My favorite of the collection is the Honey Bath because it reminds of the Tutti Dolci product that I loved and now can no longer buy. I love the perfume in this line, it gives me a rich gourmand fragrance that has hints of vanilla, sandalwood, coconut, and white florals that lasts all day but is never overwhelming. There is not one product in this collection that I wouldn't love to own or use to give as a special gift for a close friend. Now when I think of Gourmand fragrances, my thoughts go right to Laura Mercier. And now I want to head out and try the rest of the fragrances in this collection.

With a nod to France and the French Patisserie, Laura Mercier introduced a body and bath collection called Body and Bath Collection Gourmande featuring such scents as Au Lait, Creme Brulee, Vanilla Creme Puff, Tarte Au Citron, and now the irresistible Almond Coconut Milk. Sound delicious? They are, plus no cal.

The Almond Coconut Milk Honey Bath is my current favorite with its fresh sweet fragrance. As if that weren't enough for a bubble bath it's also fun. The Honey Bath comes with a wooden honey dipper. About six inches long the dipper isn't a spoon but has a serrated tip which you twirl to pick up the Honey Bath. Then hold this under running water to fill your tub with masses of rich bubbles.

The addition of Vitamins A and E serve to moisturize and condition the skin while Rosemary, Sage, Ivy and Papaya extracts provide firming, lifting, purifying and toning properties.

Smoothing on Almond Coconut Milk Souffle Body Cream following a bath is the ultimate in pampering and pleasure.
