Usually I remember what prompts me to order from a vendor, a blog spotlight, a friend's recommendation, a sale or news of a restock, or my own little treasure find while trolling Etsy. I cannot for the life of me, remember what set me to ordering from Scent Illusion. When the box came though, I was happy that I did!
Left to Right: Wax Brittle in Pumpkin Pecan Waffles/Sugar Cookie Bread rich, buttery and sweet, just how I like my PPW, the added sugar cookie gives a nice vanilla crunch
Clamshell in Sea Island Grapefruit sweet Ruby Red grapefruit, juicy and bright, not as tart or bitter as grapefruit can sometimes be
These two are my favorite out of the whole order so far on cold. Both are really well done and lovely!
Left to Right: Twin Scallop packs in Vermont Apple Pie mostly cinnamon with a strange plastic note, not much apple or flaky pie crust
Scallops in Blackberry Mornings pure blackberry preserves, not even a smidge of floral, very nice
Chunky muffin in Candy Cane/Pink Sugar I ordered this thinking it would be a pink peppermint type of scent, but my nose picks out strawberry the most. I am not the biggest strawberry and mint fan but it is strong and looks cute.
Free Samples in Coconut Raspberry Danish mmmmmzz, coconut, BAM! hint of raspberry sauce and flaky bakery goodness
Spiritual Awakening smells like clean clothes, a nice floral, I imagined hydrangea and lilacs but it turns out to be ylang ylang, rose, jasmine, carnation, violet and woods. Now that I know, I would say carnation is the strongest note.
Banana Marshmallow Cake a sweet, mellow gooey marshmallow and white cake with just the barest int of banana. The banana in here smells like the yummy banana milk shakes I used to get at Checkers with my Dad.
Pumpkin Pecan Waffles now that I can smell it beside the brittle blended with sugar cookie I can sense the difference, here it is less vanillic and has just a touch of dry, nutty sharpness.
Normally, I like to pop a few in the melter to see how they throw and what not, but I just have not had the chance to yet. I will do that this weekend and make a quick review of it. They do all seem really nice on cold sniff which is a good start. Have a great day!
