I blame the owls and vanilla pumpkin scent. That is my excuse for placing a teeny order from Missouri River Soap, again, when Holly restocked recently. With a few exceptions, I find it easier on my stash and wallet if I place really small orders than larger orders. I know that seems like a "DUH" comment, but in the past I rationalized if I bought larger orders then I would not have to order as frequently. Well, that was joke. I like too many smellies and vendors. So, unless it is Rosegirls or SMT (who only open about twice a year, thus requiring "Go Big or Go Home" orders from me) I am keeping things small. And cute things come in small packages....
Vanilla Pumpkin- These caramel colored cuties weighed in at about 0.7 ounces each and were $3.25 for a 4-pack. I have never laid nose on a pumpkin that smelled like this! It reminds me of a pumpkin coconut flan. No spice. All creaminess. The vanilla is so rich and creamy it comes across as coconut milk. I love it.
Cherry-Dipity Donut- I wanted to share this amazing scent with a few friends so I ordered another one for myself. Each donut is about 0.7 ounces and the 4-pack was $2.75. I reviewed this on cold previously, here I will review it warmed. I put one of the tarts in my living room/kitchen area and probably should have used two in hindsight. The scent was a cheerful cherry heavy serendipity with coconut and tropical fruits accompanying. I got more of a glaze from the donut than dough. The throw was medium light which is not bad for a little 0.7 ounce tart in such a huge open space. I am excited to use two next time and splurge a little. I have to say I never realized I enjoyed cherry scents so much until I met this blend.
Apple Almond Cookie- These bitty baby owls are about 0.3 ounces each and cost $2.00 for a 6-pack. Ruby red Macintosh apples with a whisper of cherry-almond. Another unique blend and lovely twist on a fall scent.
Clean Cotton- Reminds me of Gain and my mother-in-law's clean smelling home. Strong and fresh like its name implies.
Gourding Around- Holly informed me that this scent is composed of fresh aloe, green clover and bright citrus. These all combine to create a unique and fun fragrance. My nose gathers: lemons, a touch of greenery from the clover and a raw butternut squash hint. Seriously! Like that faint squishy squash smell from carving pumpkins? I think the aloe is what is giving the illusion of actual squash. This is one neat scent.
Enchanted Apple- Winter Candy Apple and a great duplication. It smells more magnified some how to the point of bordering on a mild soapiness. It is beautiful.
I am happy with my Missouri River Soap wax tarts. Yesterday I plopped two Fruit Loop Dreams into the bedroom warmer and they threw a strong orange focused citrus blast all around the room. I look forward to discovering the new blends Holly will come up with in the future. And the owls... too cute.
