Pink Grapefruit

Every time I get a coupon for Bath & Body Works, I can't resist using it. I love anything that smells good!

Several years ago, I discovered Pink Grapefruit from their signature collection. It was love at first sight... I mean sniff. It's sweet and fresh and makes me happy! I bought every product in that scent.

Sadly, they have discontinued it. Fortunately, a friend warned me, so I was able to stock up before it was gone. Since I don't like any of the other "pink grapefruit" scented products I have found from other companies, I will have to make my stash last until Bath & Body Works decides to bring it back.

They will bring it back, won't they?

P.S. I just noticed that my second-favorite scent from B&BW, "Tropical Passionfruit," seems to have disappeared too! Yikes! At least they still have my third-favorite, "Mango Mandarin." Can you tell I'm a "fruity" person? By the way, I love to EAT pink grapefruit too.... the fruit, not the lotion.

  1. Oooh, I love pink grapefruit too. Have you tried those Scentsy candle products? I can't remember if they have a grapefruit or not. I was using them all the time but I gotta uncover my warmer. It got buried on the kitchen counter. :)

  4. I can so feel your pain. I do not know you and have found you through Courtney Kendrick somehow stumbling around in blogland, but I too love pink grapefruit and it is disappearing from everything. I first fell in love with Glade Plug Ins oh my they were deliscious and now GONE< then it was Dawn dish washing liquid I have 9 bottles becasue I have learned from BB&B and Glade that someday they will be gone too! Good luck in your search for new grapefruit....it is so REFRESHINGLY CLEAN SMELLING! ~Donna

    I work at Bath and Body works and just so you know, you can get discontinued scents twice a year, once in their January sale and once in their June sale (goes through all of those months). They bring out discontinued products for GREAT buys. You can also order discontinued products on their website. Best of luck!!

  6. I've been following your blog since I discovered it after Stephanie and Christian's accident. I am from AZ but live in Utah now. My grandparents live in Gilbert and have about 6 grapefruit trees. This post brought back the memories of going to their house and eating grapefruit straight from the tree for breakfast. We're going there for Christmas this year and I'll have to stock up to bring home to the bitter cold of Utah. Have a Merry Christmas!

  7. I loved the Pink Grapefruit scent too but didn't get the heads up. I will have to keep my eyes open during the discontinued sales.

  8. I feel your pain! Gap Body had a pink grapefruit scent a few years ago that I loved. It smells so fresh and clean. They've discontinued it as well. I'll have to check out the Jan. sale at B&B for their version.

    BTW...very cute Christmas card! Made me want to go to the beach!

  9. I know exactly how you feel. They hook you, then they tug it away. Argh!

  12. I've been following your blog for awhile now - I enjoy your life very much! on a side note: I was looking at my husbands high school blog (Mesa 1988) and saw your link there - small world! Do you remember Allen Thompson? He remembers you from seminary.

  14. You can still get pink grapefruit in their hand soap - it's better than nothing - I love that scent too!

  15. I love the "Pink" body spray from Gap, also!

    The scent I miss the most from Bath and Body Works is "Bergamot and Coriander". My husband and I both miss that soap.
