The ingredients in your body wash serve one of two purposes: to help clean your skin, or to make you smell good. But among those scented ingredients, not all are created equal. Some might make you smell crisp and clean, while others fall under the aphrodisiac category, meaning they make you smellsexy. But what exactly does that mean?
In the case of PLANTs Get It On Body Wash (which really leans into its name), the ingredient at hand is sandalwood. An aromatic mainstay for more than 4,000 years, it has a deep and musky charm that stands out from lighter, more citrusy scents. Scrub yourself down with this body wash, and what lingers is a rugged (yet refreshing) aromano need for a post-shower cologne spritz. Youll smell, as one female colleague put it, strong and approachable.
Combine that scent of sandalwood with notes of ginger, cedar, and rosemary, and you've got an aroma that falls somewhere between a rustic garden and a woodsman's cottage. If that isn't attractive, I don't know what is. What's more, this cleanser is made with only eight all-natural ingredients, from soothing aloe vera to rich essential oils like coconut, olive, and jojoba.
So yes, in the end, I did find love: I love this product. And while Im still in search of a soul mate, my new musky aura might help reel one in. (Cue the Marvin Gaye.)
