THIS IS NOT PUMPKIN SPICE
Scent notes: Most of the negative reviews on The Body Shop site (and I expect negative reviews on this site for the same thing) are because THIS IS NOT PUMPKIN SPICE. The fragrance is a sort of french vanilla, with something else that I think is supposed to be pumpkin. Overall, it's kind of a "pudding" fragrance, almost like butterscotch? There is no hint of spices (no cinnamon, no nutmeg, no cloves, no pumpkin spice); it's just vanilla and pumpkin, like it says on the tin. If you want something closer to "pumpkin spice," try the Vanilla Chai fragrance instead. Sensitive skin: I have sensitive skin that reacts poorly to most fragrances, if I get Body Shop body butter on my face by accident, I get dry/flaky patches, but I've never gotten a reaction when using it on my body. The Vanilla Pumpkin body butter is the "for dry skin" formula, similar to the Coconut body butter. It's very hydrating and nice, good for use overnight and/or after a shower.
