Banana Republic Fresh Nectar


I love going into my local TJ Maxx (that's TK Maxx to you Brits).

They always have a great selection of products - toiletries, skincare, haircare, and fragrance - marked down.

So I'm sort of bummed to learn that the Banana Republic Fresh Nectar Harmonizing Body Mist I got there today (original price $18) is actually selling for 49 cents less through BR than it is through TJ.

Buy it online here.

About this scent: I love it, and I don't know why.

There is pear in it, and I'm not generally a huge fan of pear in perfume - it always seems a bit over the top to me.

But this fragrance - which now resides in my fridge - is not so much a perfume as an eau de toilette, and a very diluted one at that.

I wish it were much stronger.

I also bought the shower gel in the same scent, though the body lotion wasn't available (if there is one, and I'm assuming there is).2

As the name suggests, it's just a very fresh, non-cloying smell.

The fact that I came home from shopping and immediately took a shower just so I could bathe and spritz myself in Fresh Nectar should tell you something.
