This fragrance pays homage to my favourite sweet but also Nigeria's number one candy called TomTom. My parents would always bring back a huge tin or bag of TomTom's when they came back from a trip to Nigeria and they were gone in seconds.
Tom Tom's are a soothing menthol oval black and white sweet, with a strong menthol flavour. Being a child with very sensitive skin I wanted to make sure I used essential oils such as eucalyptus [also found in TomTom's] to give each person that same soothing and relaxing feeling when you bite into a Tom Tom, while using the body butter.
I also decided to add Neroli to the butter - a sweet, honeyed fragrance with spicy notes to the fragrance combination to balance the minty freshness of Eucalyptus.
