Doubtblush: Demeter Poison Ivy Shower Gel

You may have noticed that we're hardly perpetual rays of sunshine around here, but even so, we seem to spend a lot of our time enthusing about one gewgaw or another. Doubtblush exists to make it clear that we do not, in fact, like everything

Okay. We in fact think that poison ivy-scented shower gel ($11.50) is an astounding idea (and we're generally fans of the out-there scents at Demeter Fragrance Library) but it's the sort of thing that you want mostly so that you can mess with other people with it. Imagine leaving this and no other soap in the shower in the guest bathroom! Imagine a hotel where this was the default free soap! Like we said, astounding, and guaranteed to make anyone who went to summer camp as a child really, really cautious. (In case you were wondering, no, the "active ingredient" in poison ivy is not a part of the formula. Up to you whether that's disappointing or not.)

Please get a new catchphrase. The "perpetual rays of sunshine" bit is getting annoying.

I can't imagine that anyone would intentionally get close enough to poison ivy to see what it smells like. ;)

And I like the catchphrase, it makes the point nicely.

I have poison ivy as I'm writing this. I want to slap whoever came up with this idea!
