St. Ives Is Launching a Fragrance That Smells Just Like Its Classic Apricot Scrub
St. Ives Is This summer has offered up plenty of ways to smell like fruit. Kim Kardashian’s latest Kimoji fragrances, for example, include both a Cherry and Peach scent. And if you liked the latter as much as Drew Barrymore did, you’ll probably be excited to learn that St. Ives, in a stroke of nostalgia-fueled genius, has introduced a 10-milliliter rollerball fragrance based on the scent of its beloved and classic Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub.
According to Bustle, the new fragrance is aptly named Iconic Apricot, and it was created with the same fruity notes as the scrub. St. Ives Apricot Scrub was very likely one of the very first beauty products you ever used, considering it has developed a huge following since it first gained popularity in the ’80s — and despite the 2016 lawsuit that claimed the scrub caused irritation and “micro-tears” in the skin, which could lead to inflammation or even premature aging. (Note: It’s best to refrain from using any physical exfoliant every day.)
Regardless of controversy, the face scrub still has die-hard fans, one of whom is Gigi Hadid. She once explained the scrub’s popularity to Allure, saying, “It’s been around because it’s the best.” If you, however, have decided to be extra-cautious by not using the scrub but you miss that sentimental smell, Iconic Apricot sounds like safe, sweetly-scented compromise.\
You can smell like your teen years without the risk of excess exfoliation by snagging an Iconic Apricot rollerball for $10 on the St. Ives website.
