Another Bath & Body Works classic fragrance: Sweet Pea. This sweet lotion is loved for its amazing moisturizing powers, but its incredible scent certainly has a lot to do with its popularity. Top notes include sweet pea, pear, loganberry, and blackcurrant, but all of that sweetness is evened out by soft musk and plum woods. If you’re looking for a sweet scent, but not too sweet, this signature smell is for you.
