Smell Bent Holiday Happening Reviews

Well Smell Bent has put out another really chic limited edition collection.  I do so enjoy a sanely sized LE collection so I really appreciate this collections well curated petite size.  I ordered the full sample set which is $18 including shipping and had my order in about a week.  I have reviewed for you, the entirety of the Holiday Happening collection!

Lady Dreidelhiba and sandalwood spun with vanilla, chocolate gelt, orris and soft musk.

In bottle:  Sandalwood and sugar.

Wet on skin:  The sandalwood is right up front with the chocolate following closely behind.  The soft musk makes a strong appearance a couple of minutes in.

Dry on skin:  Upon dry down this smells likes a room with really good expensive incense after someone has had sex in it. (did you just read that?  Yep.  I must be feeling saucy today)

Verdict:  This is a bottle must have for me.

Dead Of Winteranise liquor, vanilla, heliotrope, cedar and zombie musk.      smellies …. arrrrhhgggggg

In bottle:  Slightly spicy black jelly beans.

Wet on skin:  It smells ‘cold’ and black licoricey.  I can definitely pick out the heliotrope but the vanilla really grounds it and gives it a creamy vibe.

Dry on skin:  This scent is almost…….velvety smelling.  What does velvet smell like?  This!  Plush and rich and it’s got a dark and cool edge to it.  I can definitely smell the anise but it’s softened by the vanilla and what I think is the zombie musk.

Verdict: Anise/licorice lovers rejoice!   I love this and it will be bottle purchase for me.

**********

Bolshe Vixenhazelnuts roasted with vanilla, cocoa, cinnamon, nutmeg and creamy woods.

In bottle:  Cocoa and soft spice.

Wet on skin:  Hmmm…a little bit of all the notes!   I get nuts, some luminous cocoa and soft wood.

Dry on skin:  This smells like rich, real cocoa and tasty spices have been stored in a wood box.  It’s soft and luxurious though.  This would be equally amazing on a boy or girl.

Verdict: Um, yet another bottle buy for me!

**********

Ice Station Zebrahowling arctic winds, cracking ice, frozen earth,  and crisp evergreen buried under a drift of snowy musk.

In bottle:  Mint and evergreen.

Wet on skin:  Brisk and green right up front.  The two mixed together definitely gives it a frozen and icy feel.    And a little like menthol or Ben Gay!   (which I kind of like)

Dry on skin:  Everything has softened considerably but it’s still very brisk and wintery smelling.   I get the icy, cold and evergreen feel for sure.

Verdict:  I would love to smell this on a boy.  It’s a bit brisk for me all on it’s own, but it would be really nice layered over a sweet candy scent.

**********

Winter Lovevintage red patchouli mellowed out with incense, tonka, blood cedar, vetiver and sandalwood.

In bottle:  Hippy dippy patchouli!  (this oil is very thick!)

Wet on skin:   Oh yeah, calling all hippies!  I get patchouli right up in your face with blood cedar and vetiver lurking off to the side.

Dry on skin:   The patchouli is still ‘right there’ and this is a very in your face head shop type of patchouli.   With the incense and sandalwood it’s earthy and very grounded.

Verdict:   Straight up hippie, head shop but done in an expensive and thoughtful way.  Patchouli lovers take note!
