This is another goodie that I grabbed at the Pacifica secret sale to compliment the perfume spray that I got from them as well. When I tired Pacifica Egyptian Rose Bergamot Perfume, I thought it was a bit too musky and spicy. I find the patchouli overwhelms the rose and bergamot too much but I am happy to find that this is not the case with the body butter version.
The body butter’s scent is more subtle but not too subtle that I can’t smell anything on myself or distinguish the blend of scents from each other. I can definitely smell the rose and the bergamot in the body butter, while I find the amber, patchouli and labdanum overwhelm the rose and bergamot in the perfume. After all, it is called Egyptian Rose Bergamot, I think the rose and bergamot should be more dominate. In the body butter, I can smell the soft floral of the rose and the tanginess of the bergamot. The patchouli, amber and labdanum add a spiciness and muskiness that is just right in the body butter, making it more exotic. In the perfume, I find the spiciness and muskiness too heady for my taste. There is also a “creamy” quality to the scent in the body butter as well, which pleasantly softens the scent. I also think the scent to the body butter is more natural than the perfume.
Like all the Pacifica body butters I have tried so far, the moisturizer is rich without being greasy or heavy. It absorbs into my skin fast and keeps my skin soft for a hours and hours. One thing I don’t like is that the body butter’s scent is not very long lasting. It only lasts about 1-2 hours on me.
