Parfum du Jour: Sandalwood & Ginger (The Body Shop)

Why wear it? Well, it's raining buckets outside, which is exactly how the weather looked the first time I reviewed S&G two and a half years ago. I suppose heavy precipitation triggers a need in me for warm and woody perfumes. If my fingers hadn't brushed against my sample vial of S&G first, I would probably have opted for Black Mark and ended up unhappy. (But talk to me again tomorrow, when the temperature plummets thirty degrees-- Black Mark will be more than welcome then!)

What does it do? A very basic thing in a very beautiful way.

How do I feel? Because I sprayed S&G in my freshly-washed hair as well as on my wrists, every time I turn my head I receive a fresh waft of mellow, buttery santal goodness.
