I bought the sample pack of the perfume oils.
In bottle: Mostly vanilla
Wet on skin: Whoa, this is pretty sharp….almost smoky it’s so spicy and sharp.
Dry on skin: This is very sharp and spicy. I am not getting any vanilla anymore. It’s like if you stuffed your face in a jar of ground allspice. I like it and I think it would be amazing layered with marshmallow.
Roasted Chestnuts & Marshmallows
In bottle: Sweet, sugary and marshmallow goodness.
Wet on skin: Yum, marshmallow! Warm, gooey marshmallow.
Dry on skin: Still mostly marshmallow. I think this would be amazing layered with Gingerbread man.
In bottle: Medicinal and reminiscent of the dentists office.
Wet on skin: Dentists office with a camp fire inside. It smells a bit plastic on me.
Dry on skin: This never settles into something into something I like. It’s smoky, medicinal and still very Eau De Dentist Office to me.
Gingerbread & Vanilla Cream
In bottle: Vanilla and creamy.
Wet on skin: Vanilla and spice with the spice taking over at this point.
Dry on skin: Yum, I really like this. It’s a nice balance of sweet and spicy.
In bottle: Green and…..bayberry-ish! Definitely smells like the holidays.
Wet on skin: Still green and bayberries….a little more evergreen now, very foresty.
Dry on skin: This softens a little bit as it dries but stay pretty true to it name. Also slightly reminds me of BPAL’s Yule Cat. It would make a very pretty room scent.
Spiked Nog & Nutmeg
In bottle: Smells like the eggnog flavored syrups they use to make lattes.
Wet on skin: Egnoggy for sure! And it’s got something that makes it slightly soft and pretty. The spice is very light.
Dry on skin: This has a bit of a drier smell to it now if that makes sense. It’s really, really pretty and I think I’ll be getting a bottle of this. It’s foody but not overpoweringly so.
Rice Pudding & Rum Soaked Raisins
In bottle: Buttery.
Wet on skin: It definitely smells like rice pudding! A little boozy.
Dry on skin: Now I can smell the rum and raisins. It softens it a little bit. This is a little too buttery for me and it’s a fairly heavy scent but it’s still pretty. I’d be more likely to use this as a room scent.
