Naturally I went right for the citrus based Sunswept and then the tropical Cabana. Both smell really nice. Sunswept is for us citrus lovers. Very orange with a little of the bergamot so that it's not simply fruit. Thankfully they didn't feel the need to add musky notes or the like , which you often see . Just zippy citrus. Having perfume people behind this helps. Cabana is coconut and vanilla. It's a bit like a good tropical blend sorbet and reminds me of a drink I once had on the beach in Aruba.
I tried the lotion, shower gel and body mist. The lotion is extremely moisturizing and creamy with a good scent trail. It has shea butter and grape seed oil. The body wash lathers up well, isn't drying and leaves a little scent. The body mist is just that, a nice light mist that leaves you smelling good and has decent lasting power.
