13 Of The Best-Smelling Body Washes For A Heavenly Shower Every Day

When it comes to beauty products, scent is very important – especially if it’s something you’re using every day, like body wash. So if you’re not entirely happy with the aroma of your current shower pal, here are some of the best-smelling body washes to add to your cart next time.

And if you really want your scent to linger, consider layering it with a best-smelling body moisturiser too.

#1 Jurlique Softening Rose Shower Gel

“I instantly fell in love. I began recommending it to close family and friends as the smell was just divine. I originally was worried that I might smell like a grandma but it smells fresh, not old and musty. I gifted this to my sister in law who now loves it as well.” –Katherine90

#2 Glow Lab Coconut & Sandalwood Body Wash

“The scent of this lingers on the skin even after my shower. It’s a very relaxing and sophisticated scent – I love woody scents and the sandalwood in this is a prominent feature. The fragrance in this body wash is all natural and is actually a concoction of a huge array of real essential oils! Talk about value for money!” – clearcrystalwater

#3 Palmer’s Moisturizing Cocoa Butter Body Wash

“It gives a nice wash and the scent is so so so addictive! It smells almost like chocolate and has a creamy consistency and lathers well on the skin. Unlike a lot of body washes, it does feel moisturising on the skin.” – J_01

#4 Johnson’s Dreamy Skin Body Wash

“To start with, this is probably the best smelling shower gel I have ever used. It’s like the adult’s version of the baby bedtime bath which smells exactly the same. I love that it comes in a one litre bottle because it lasts ages and the smell lingers. I can’t smell it on myself but when hubby comes out of the bathroom I just want to sniff him constantly.” – Karlie 361

#5 L’OCCITANE Almond Shower Oil 

“I love this product. I originally purchased it just for the heavenly scent of the almond, but once I got it home and tried it, there was no going back to my ordinary shower gel or soap. It leaves your skin feeling soft and supple and smelling delicious.” – Talinga81

#6 The Body Shop Moringa Shower Gel

“The Body Shop Moringa range is absolutely lovely – if you haven’t smelled it, it’s a floral scent without being overpowering, somehow fruity as well as floral. All the products in the Moringa range smell gorgeous, and the shower gel is no exception. Lathers well with a loofa, isn’t drying on the skin, and leaves a delicate perfume.” –MoniqueBeauty

#7 Natio Wellness Shower & Bath Gel

“It smells amazing (the combination of almond, pomegranate and honey is a real winner) and you only need one or two pumps each time. There is a generous amount in the bottle so it should last you a long time anyway.” –Ethelinde

#8 Trilogy Botanical Body Wash

“This is hands down my favourite body wash right now. What I love most about this is the gorgeous and feminine rosy geranium scent which reacts with the steamy shower to create a spa like experience. This particular blend of essential oils is very calming yet uplifting at the same time and really manages to wake me up and lift my spirits a bit in the mornings.”- Beautylicious

#9 A’kin Orange Blossom & Juniper Body Wash

“The burst of citrusy freshness is lovely to use in the shower in the mornings, it is very uplifting without being overpowering or too heady. It also has a lovely lather and best of all it leaves the skin feeling moisturised and not dry. It is a little pricey, so it would be something to use sparingly.”-lynx

#10 Sukin Naturals Botanical Body Wash – Lime and Coconut

“Once again, Sukin didn’t disappoint with this body wash, which not only smells amazing (it’ll transport you back to your latest Bali or Thailand vacation), but doesn’t fall into the pitfall of other similar natural products in being ineffective. The body wash still manages to clean of dirt and grime, and leaves you smelling amazing afterwards – I also love that it comes with a fragrance matched body lotion!” –Jessica3934

#11 NIVEA Clay Fresh Deep Cleansing Shower in ‘Ginger & Basil’

“I chose the ginger and basil scent which was uplifting, energising and so fresh. I loved using this in the morning to wake me up. The perfect fresh summer scent.” –Millecat

#12 method Body Wash Pure Peace

“The rosy smell is very fresh, calming and is not overbearing. I don’t usually like floral scents but this one is like freshly picked flowers. I use it at night and love using it just before I get into bed.” – eriberry

#13 L’OCCITANE Cherry Blossom Bath & Shower Gel

“This is such a wonderful smelling body wash – it smells like springtime and the fragrance just lingers all over your skin. It leaves my skin feeling clean and hydrated at the same time. You can even pour a little bit of it into your bath for a luxurious soak.” –Miss19

  1. I’ve tried a few of the body washes in this article. I might try the Trilogy Botanical Body Wash and the Jurlique Softening Rose Shower Gel again because I haven’t used them in a long time.

  2. So glad to see Natio shower gel there its probably best one ive used so soft and silky.
    Love Natio products great for sensitive skin.
    Might try Trilogy next as love their products too

  3. I have the Sukin Lemon and Lime body wash in my shower at present. It lathers well and quite invigorating. However I like to change my body washes as I do get a tad bored with the same fragrance after a while.

  4. Some beautiful refreshing Body Washes, really like Trilogy Botanical Body Wash and Softening Rose Shower Gel, Cherry Blossom Bath & Shower Gel just love a soft floral scent. 💐

  5. They all sound amazing, really keen to try the L’Occitane washes as always, ADORE their stuff! For a heavenly-scented cheapie, the Juliet Relaxing Lavender & Chamomile Shower Gel from Aldi smells incredibly nice and is always a favourite at home.
