1. Crayola’s Magic Scent Crayons
Especially the rose and fresh air scents.
2. Dr. Pepper Lip Smacker
Bonne Bell must have made so much money off ’90s girls because we literally ALL had this.
4. My Little Pony
I can instantly recall that sort of soft baby powder-ish plastic.
7. Fruit Erasers
Which, weirdly, did not usually smell like fruit. But just like eraser.
8. Watermelon Candy Kisses Lip Balm
Ommmmmm can you taste it, too?
10. L’Oréal Kids 2-In-1 Shampoo
The ‘poo that claimed to be “no tears.” NOT.
11. Barbie Shoes
What? I never put these in my mouth and chewed them like gum. What?
12. Cherry Merry Muffin
But mainly those chocolate cupcakes. Whyyyyy did they never taste like chocolate?
14. Girly Play-Doh Creations
Puzzlingly, everything that came out of your Play-Doh Cookie Lovin’ Oven tasted so salty.
Because we were constantly dyeing our hair with these fruity powders.
16. Bath & Body Works Stuff
Cucumber Melon was hugely popular. But perhaps you also remember Cotton Blossom? Country Apple? Juniper?
17. Strawberry Scented Pencils
When these stopped smelling a week later, it was a very sad thing.
18. Bath Oil Beads
Usually procured from The Body Shop. Strawberry! Dewberry!
19. Costume Body Glitter
Every Halloween/costume opportunity called for “professional” body glitter like this, which always smelled vaguely of alcohol. Maybe with a hint of glue.
20. Hello Kitty Puffy Plastic Wallets
Basically, it turns out Eau de Plastique is the scent of the ’90s.
