Travel Betty Quick Tips- Conjuring Travel Memories With Scent

One thing I like to do on long trips is bring along a really overpoweringly-scented body wash and shampoo combo to use for the duration. It’s not that I’m hard of smelling. I just like my product to do its job. Then when I get home and I’m feeling nostalgic for the place, I can sniff the leftovers and be transported straight back. In South Africa and Namibia, I used Philosophy’s Cinnamon Buns.In Egypt, Philosophy’s Double Rich Hot Cocoa. (You may notice a pattern here. In my opinion, Philosophy rocks their scents like a pro bowler!)

For those who need an extra boost of conditioning power, be warned that Philosophy no longer touts its product as a combo body wash, shampoo and conditioner. I wrote them to inquire about the reason and they replied that it just wasn’t living up to the conditioning claim. So now it’s marketed as a body wash, shampoo and bubble bath. Clever. It’s still better than say, Prell (or dirt), but just know you need to bring a separate creamy rinse.

They’ve got a ton of other delicious, yet sadly inedible flavors as well. Feel free to travel around the world so you can try them all.

      Fantastic Idea! Scents make me terribly nostalgic if I associate them with a person/place/time in my life also… Sigh…
