88 Orange

West Coast natives are always bragging about the delicious scent of the orange groves. I am an East Coast girl and I always thought, "how can that compare with the fragrance of an East Coast ocean?" Well 88 Orange made me a believer. 88 Orange is a California-based company that specializes in deliciously scented clothing (yes, really) and a home and body line that is to die for. 88 Orange is named for the perfect size orange, and the packaging features the founder's grandfather and great aunt standing in front of their own orange grove in Orange Park Acres, California in 1928.

I cannot even begin to describe the delicious, fresh summery orange blossom fragrance of the products. It has top notes of citronella and tangerine with a heart of orange blossoms and water lily and a base of neroli and lilac. We have the 88 Orange Body Butter which is super moisturizing with a rich shea butter base. It smells amazing, and really embodies the bright fresh feel of summer. It makes your skin so smooth and people will be stopping to ask what you are wearing (it happened three times in one night to me).

The Fabric Softener is a great way to add this soon-to-be classic scent to your clothing. I especially go gaga for the smell it leaves on our beach and pool towels. It makes getting out of the water a treat instead of a chore. It leaves your laundry room smelling like a little slice of heaven.

Love the vintage packaging, adore the scent...and I finally get why West Coast natives are so enchanted with Orange Groves and 88 Orange.
