That's right—it's Bath and Body Works Japanese Cherry Blossom. With 30 MILLION units sold per year, the fragrance collection outsells the second-place product by a whopping 29 million units annually. Which makes sense when you think back to how rabid your 8th grade self was when let loose in a Bath and Body Works, and how many different variations of Japanese Cherry Blossom products she'd blindly/desperately grab before her BFF's birthday slumber party.

In case you've forgotten what it smells like (but really, it's permanently ingrained in your nostrils, don't lie), it's a blend of the obvious cherry blossoms with crisp pears, mimosa petals, and sweet sandalwood—tempting even to your adult self, no?
