Life's a peach - The Body Shop peach body butter

Well this is a blast from the past. I think the fragrance of peaches is the first I associate with the Body Shop from a long time ago and I'm really happy to see it (or should that be smell it) again. 


In those heady, long ago days we were not used to creams, lotions or bubble baths that smelled like food - they smelled like Matey, or Fairy Liquid, or if you were posh, Badedas. This was something new, something you almost believed you could eat (and I bet you I'm not the only person who put that to the test at the time; as we all now know, the taste is nothing like the scent!)

Time has marched on, fruity, foody, gourmand, fragrances are everywhere and in everything, even perfume and makeup. No longer does the Body Shop make fruity bubble bath - it's all shower gel now, reflecting how bathroom habits have changed also since the late 70s/ early 80s. And there's also masses of 'me toos' out there - I'm not saying they are any less beneficial for softening skin or cleaning away dirt, just that where the Body Shop ploughed the furrow, the others have followed.
So I will be guarding my peach body butter from my daughter, using it when she's not there and hiding it in between times (she has already had her fingers in the pot, as you can see). Dot has lots of scented, fruity smelling products by lots of different brands, but this one, this is mine; this is a link to my youth and the importance of that will be lost on her (or rather, she will just think I'm old and sad). Which of course, I'm not...
