You have, no doubt, become aware of my adoration for FuturePrimitive Conditioning Hair Rinse if you have read this blog for any length of time. Despite having tried a few other indie brands, I keep coming back to repurchase this formula.
During Tiggy's end of season sale, I think I nabbed the very last two conditioners on her site. Here are the scents with her descriptions following:
Ebenezer- A miserly cold winter breath moans down a chimney breast and into a dark, grey-washed room. The scent of frosted pine needles and eucalyptus leaves encased in ice make way for a hopeful splash of clean lemongrass and fresh lime.
How can I even begin to improve upon this apt imagery? I do have to say that this scent reminds me a great deal of Tombstone, which I am thankful for, as I really enjoy the sharp almost mineral tang meshed with zesty fresh lime and pine. I was missing Tombstone and this is a great substitute. It also goes well with the tea tree shampoo I currently use.
Inglenook- White winter birch bark, crackling forest fires in the North Woods, a flagon of whisky, a waft of rich men's cologne and a bowl of softly smouldering frankincense and myrrh resins.
Yes, yes times a thousand, for lovers of woodsy aromas, incense and well constructed fragrances.A full body care line in this would have been a prudent purchase. Alas, mayhaps next winter.
Ebenezer Bubbling Sugar Buff- This smells much more stronger in the lemongrass and lime than the conditioner, making it quite zippy and refreshing. There still lurks the tinny mineral note. After using on freshly shaved legs, I can say that the scent really opens up and the eucalyptus, pine and lime intermingle to resemble a lemon flavored Halls Mentholatum drop. The scrub's white thick paste holds embeds of medium sized sugar crystals that buff away dead skin effectively and leave soft smoothness behind.
Sixpence Pudding Three in One Whipped Cream Soap- A dimly lit back alley on Christmas Eve night. Snowfall gently hitting the quiet pavement, smouldering frankincense smoke creeping out of a church doorway and the aroma of steaming Sixpence Puds graces the cold outside air.
Thank you for taking me to London for Christmas Tiggy. Via the Imagination Express fueled by your fragrance wizardry. This scent is more out of doors than dessert, again, getting a lime and mineral quality. The puds might have some anise sprinkled in. Puds. I want to eat Sixpence Puds.
Free Sample Aromatic Oil in Tobacconist- Adore. As always. I love Tobacconist.
Tiggy has released some amazing sounding soaps and such for Valentine's Day.
Jilter & Crushed (The Scent: A keepsake box of loves lost. Chunks of Copal resin, Indian Attar's filled with Oudh, Flakes of Amber resin, Black Tonka Beans and offerings of Dragronsblood, finished with a lick of Vetiver.) and La Vie En Rose (The Scent: Soft powdery Violet, Indian Mahogany Rose, a vintage jar of Parma Violets and a hint of dark, sticky Labdanum oil.) have caught my eye the most.
Have you splurged on any Valentine's releases? Anything caught your eye?
