Bridgerton is a Netflix original TV series that debuted in 2020.  The setting is the Regency era. Season 1 Episode 1 opens in London, England in 1813.  Season 3 will premiere on May 13th.

I enjoy the costumes, pomp [social season, balls, etc.], tea scenes with beautiful china, and British sites [Hampton Court Palace among others], but Netflix informs viewers that language, nudity, sex, violence, smoking, and substances are prevalent. Why? Though described as a historical romance, some scenes would have been better with innuendo leaving viewers to draw their own conclusions rather than graphic portrayal. Just sayin'!

Bath and Body Works collaborated with Netflix to create five scents inspired by scenes, characters, key icons and moments from the series that's called the Bridgerton Collection.  The collection was launched on March 25th and will continue for one year.  Bath and Body Works says scent is the most evocative of all the senses, and they will take the Netflix series to a new level with their candles, fragrance mist, body care products, hand soaps & sanitizers and fragrance plugs.

When I saw their line of Queen Charlotte's Tea products [the British Queen when Season 1 begins] talked about on social media, I knew I had to pay a visit to my local Bath and Body Works store.  The display is great!

The color palette of Queen Charlotte's Tea collection is turquoise.

My teal bathroom is the only room in the house that doesn't have a suitable tea accessory [much less something in a matching color], aside from a small, handmade teapot bar of soap.  

So imagine my delight when I saw the teacup fragrance plug [$19.95] named Queen Charlotte's Tea.  It not only makes my bathroom smell good but the fragrance plug doubles as a nightlight.

The fragrance refills are $7.95

The coordinating hand soap and pump dispenser is $8.95

Since these items are limited editions, I decided to go back to the store today to buy some extra fragrance refills, and I was delighted to find them on sale for $3.95.

While researching the Bath and Body Works Bridgerton collection online I discovered there is a cute little teapot hand sanitizer holder.  It's sold out online, but still available in stores for $8.95 and the hand sanitizer insert is $1.95.  Of course it had to come home with me too!

It's perfect for attaching to purses or backpacks.

I was shocked to see the mark-up on Poshmark [$22], E-bay [$18.50] and Mercari [$15]. If you're interested, go to your nearest Bath and Body Works store as soon as possible before they run out.

That's enough Bridgerton for one post, but I have one more to write so please check back.
