Oooh, a troll perfume oil to review. How exciting! This is the third installment in the Queens of Snow and Air collection, Gehern The Troll to review.
Gehern the Troll: He lives high in the mountains in his frozen cave. Fresh gingerroot, warm gingerbread, nectarine, bergamot, sweet orange.
In bottle: Spicy ginger!
Wet on skin: It’s a blast of fresh ginger sprinkled on top of fresh gingerbread. Yum. The bergamot and citrus round it out and keep it from being too foodie or sweet.
Dry on skin: As this blend dries down, the gingers and citrus blend together perfectly and the nectarine takes center stage for a bit. The bergamot is creamy and rich, supporting the gingers and citrus notes to perfection.
Verdict: The was a surprise hit for me. The bergamot grounds this blend and keeps it from being too sweet, cloying or foodie. A fresh blend of ginger and citrus makes the oil appropriate for both boys or girls with a sophisticated spice. Who knew a troll oil could smell so good? Give this one a shot….it’s amazing!
This blend and the rest of the Queens of Snow and Air can be found at The Rhinestone Housewife.
