Rated 4 out of 5 by Kaliope Lovely Scent, But Not For Me
I will be honest and say that I don't really like floral scents, not at all. It's just a matter of preference -- they're just not me. However, I can appreciate a nice floral scent, I'll just never get one for myself since I've yet to find one that I like so much I want to constantly smell it on me (the one exception if the Honeymania line, which I do think is more floral than honey, but for some reason I love it). However, with all that said, this really is a lovely scent.
One of my daughters embodies the stereotype of girly. She gravitated to this body butter because it was pink, and it had a pretty rose on the lid (I should clarify that she's young). She'd been wanting her own body butter for so long (normally, she just uses one of mine), so I took her and her twin sister to pick some out, and she chose this. I admit that part of me wanted to talk her out of it, out of pure instinct from my dislike of floral scents, but I bought it for her since I'd promised she could choose any one she wanted.
Now, one of my reasons for not liking floral scents is because if too strong, or if they linger for too long, I will develop really bad headaches, sometimes even horrendous migraines. However, I was really surprised to see that I had no issue with this product, despite my daughter practically bathing herself in this body butter (and actually, I guess she has bathed in it, at least in the British Rose bath foam). Further, while the scent really isn't for me, it is so perfect for her and smells wonderful on her. It's become her signature scent and now I'm quite fond of it because it makes me think of her. I'll even open her tub from time to time just to smell it and be reminded of her (weird, I know, but true).
Finally, as with all TBS body butters, it works great. It has a lovely, satisfying richness. It absorbs well without feeling greasy. And, it leaves skin so soft and healthy. I also noticed that it really does give my daughter's skin a beautiful, healthy glow. It seriously makes her skin look so ethereal and beautiful. Granted, she's a pretty girl with lovely skin to begin with, but it really does give a noticeable glow. I'm not sure how else to describe it.
So, all in all, although it is not a scent for me, it is beautiful, and has an enduring linger without being triggering for those more sensitive to smells. It really has grown on me, and dare I say it, I've become a bit of a fan, if even only by association.

Rated 5 out of 5 by floridonna Amazing! Best Purchase Ever for real!
I was intrigued by the reviews of this product so decided to try to shower gel to see what I thought of it. I was so taken with the fragrance that I purchased everything but the hand cream, which is on my list to try. Not only is the fragrance delightful, light but so true to it's name, I have never ever found a body cream that actually made a difference in my dry skin. All creams initially offer some relief, but hours later I still saw those tiny little goose bumps of dryness on my arms and legs. Since using this product they have nearly vanished and left my skin so soft that I am truly amazed and so very pleased! All I can say to the one negative comment, is perhaps it was a bad batch? I am not a 'floral' smelling girl, but this is a line I hope they never discontinue. I was a BBW loyal customer but no more. I have tried just about every cream (Dr. recommended and otherwise) on my skin for dryness and NONE have made a difference like this. I am going to try the shea butter also, just to see how it compares, but for fragrance just call me "British Rose"! 10 stars for me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Momoko LOVE IT!
I am usually very picky about rose scent, for some reason I thought I love the smell of rose but I didn't reli love any of the rose products I purchased from a lot of different brands before, but i LOVE this one.
Before buying this body butter online I actually bought the shower gel and I loved it so I decided to try the body butter as well.
After applying, its pretty light (i have dry skin and live in California), not oily or greasy. Scent is a little bit lighter then I expected but still smells very good.
I do see the instant glow which I also see it when I am using the Pinita Colada body butter.
And the best thing is it reminds me a perfume (of another brand, discontinued ) I got from my aunt for my birthday when I was 10 years old, yes my first perfume in my life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by YldPsyD Great scent; moisturizing body butter
British Rose is a surprising light and fresh heirloom garden rose fragrance that is neither too heavy nor too floral. I'm fairly picky about rose scents; this one is lovely. You can see the crushed rose petals when you look closely at the body butter. Although this body butter is for "Normal to Dry" skin, it's not too heavy or oily on the skin. It goes on as smoothly as a body cream, leaving skin feeling moisturized. It lasts all day on my skin even after the rose scent has faded. I adore the shower gel and the scrub from the same line, too.
