Love an unexpected "find"!

So I ran to The Store (yep, that’s the actual name of the place!) down the street from work to grab a sandwich and a Diet Coke for lunch the other day. We have this really wonderful new “general” store in town that carries some of the most unexpected things!

As I juggled my chicken salad wrap and my XL Diet Coke refill (they have that really great crushed ice there!)….I wandered past a small table with a display of home care products. They are made my the company Thymes and the fragrance was called Mandarin Coriander.  At first I was attracted by the packaging.  I have a “thing” for great package design.  The colors, the typography, the bottles are all super cute!  Secondly, I was attracted by the name….”Mandarin Coriander“???  Intriguing, if nothing else.  Of course I had to find a place to set down my lunch and check out the testers.  I must have spent 15 minutes just trying out and smelling all the products!  It had the most unusual, but pleasant scent!  Fresh, clean….two of my favorite scents. :-)

Their website describes the fragrance as:  a lively cacophony of cold-pressed mandarin, grapefruit, lemon balm and sweet orange peel. These vibrant citrus notes fuse with sweet marjoram, coriander, rosemary leaves for a soothing herbal zen. Behind these bold notes is a deep, cozy bed of Irish moss, Atlas cedarwood and ivy.

Well, I don’t know about all that…..suffice it to say….I loved the stuff!  And I’m pretty picky when it comes to smelly stuff.
So if you’re ever in the neighborhood and stop by The Store…be sure and check it out!  Or you could just order it from Amazon. :-)
And that’s my One Good Thing for today.   Happy Thursday everyone!

    That is so funny! I won this same soap/lotion set several years ago and LOVED it. I especially liked the packaging, so I have been refilling the bottles ever since.
