Inedible Creme Brulee

Creme brulee is a timeless dessert. There’s nothing like a well baked brulee that is so smooth that it slides down your throat like slippery butter. I get excited when I tuck into a creme brulee. Tapping the sugar layer slowly in order to break it – that act in itself contains the anticipation of a eager woman (such as I) who simply cannot wait to taste sweet custard with vanilla beans. I love that sensation. You know, when both custard and vanilla intertwine and give you that sense of surreal calm as you taste it with your tongue. Mmmm….

But as much as I love eating creme brulee. Not all creme brulee can be eaten. Or at least, I bought an inedible creme brulee. No, don’t be shocked. It is nothing serious really. By inedible, I don’t mean that I’ve tried an absolutely horrible creme brulee. Nah… I haven’t had the misfortune of facing such a disappointing encounter.

It’s just that I love creme brulee that much to purchase this:

Yea yea… I want to smell like creme brulee. What’s wrong? It’s lovely! Seriously, if you love creme brulee, you should get a bottle for yourself. It really smells of creme brulee. I kid you not. Since I bought it, I’ve been having a most delightful aromatic experience everytime I shower. I wonder if they have it in tiramisu ‘flavour’. I would buy 10 bottles immediately :p

Ta-dah! Nature’s Organics Spa Creme Brulee. Definitely not for those who hate smelling like dessert lest you end up attracting ants. Hmmm no ants have bitten me so I guess it’s safe. My new creme brulee shower milk is not only nice-smelling, it really wraps round my skin like milk. Very moisturising. I know this is a food blog and I’m starting to sound as if I’m a sales person selling shower milk – but really, this is good stuff. It’s creme brulee! It has a tinge of vanilla fragrance together with a custard-y scent. This is gorgeous. Contains shea butter too.

In case you’re wondering, I bought mine from NTUC Fair Price. 🙂

Not quite my kind of thing, but you’ve to give whoever came up with the idea of dessert-smelling shower milk credit for his creativity.

I’m more than happy with my magnolia handcream, takes me right back to Bali every time i catch a whiff of it but i just have to find out how exactly your creme brulee shower milk smells. Any idea if it’s a permanent shelf item? I’ll only be back year end. pfft.

I love the idea of smelling like good (usually sweet) food…that’s probably why I have about ten different candy-flavoured lip balms 😉

My husband always say I smell like a cake when I finish my weekly baking class. Guess I don’t need to go to class to smell like that now! =)

Hey, ya know I was so inspired after reading this post that I went to NTUC Fairprice to check this out. I ended up buying this one as well as the Vanilla Berry Body Wash as well as Spa for Men for the hubby. The Vanilla Berry version smells divine too. And I simply loved this Creme Brulee shower milk. Makes me feel so delicious after using it in the shower, as well as it’s indulgence minus the calories, haha 😀 Also, like what you mentioned, skin does feel nice & soft after using it. Thnks so much for all the great posts in yr blog! I also tell myself to try out yr choco chip cookies recipe soon;) Looking forward to reading more of yr wonderful postings 😀
