“I wanted to create a scent that could make you feel irresistible and for that special someone to notice just how irresistible you are.  This sweet and sensuous scent is a combination of tropical fruits and florals with something warm and mysterious mixed in…it’s been known to make a few champagne-and-strawberries kind of moments.”     –  Lisa Price, Carol’s Daughter Founder

What I think: A tropical scent for the fall, you ask? This lovely scented cream does begin with the sweet scent of fruits — pineapple, peach, mango, and strawberry, but it finishes up with vanilla and a touch of Egyptian musk.  Very sexy and fun!  Plus the formula melts into your skin and instantly moisturizes it!  Purchase at www.carolsdaughter.com.
