Guam - If you want uniquely scented soaps and lotions that are hand-crafted and made to perfection, make your way down to Lanikai, a new bath and body store   at the second floor of the Tumon Plaza.

Brook Gramann, cofounder of the store, explained why she decided to open the first Lanikai store out of Hawaii here on Guam. "We have a Hojin Song and Kazumi Hasagawa, who were interested in opening a Lanikai bath and body in Guam, I have also graduated from high school here and lived here for about 12 years when I was younger. I have an affiliation with Guam," she said.

The store is themed after brooks' hometown in Hawaii. However, she said she is glad to finally be back in Guam.

Some of the unique scents Lanikai carries include Coconut Lime Verbena, Island Sandalwood, and Tahitian Gardenia.  The store opened on Sunday.
