Rosegirls Apple Puff Pumpkin Pie was a gift from sweet Sandra at Finger Candy. I remember loving Apple Puff Pastry something fierce a few years back so I was thrilled when this arrived one day in an informal wax swap. I would think adding pumpkin pie make this mac apple blend a little more spicy and creamy sweet but instead it went... not that way. The mac apples were extra fruity sweet and there was a touch of cinnamon but I kept getting that cannoli/biscotti dry crunchiness that I just don't like. I love many, many scents the Rosegirls create but their cannoli and biscotti are not two of them. The pumpkin did contribute a depth of scent and I got a medium throw, but would not be a repurchase. Thank you for letting me try it, Sandra!! <3
Sniff My Tarts Pink Sugar/Frosty Pine/Enchanted Forest was wonderful. I forget sometimes in my exuberance for wanting woods and pines and trees to sprout from my warmers, that they sometimes need to tempered by sugar. This was a nicely balanced blend. The Pink Sugar softened and sweetened the sometimes screechy pines that can be found in Frosty Pine and Enchanted Forest. The breath of mint freshened and cooled the scent as well. The throw was about a medium. It perfumed my living area and kitchen perfectly. Repurchase/re-blend.
The Bathing Garden Deadly Gardens smells incredible. One of those that is hard to capture in words. Sweet and furry from the tonka bean, grassy hay sweetness from vetiver and a little sugared rose petals sprinkled on top. Overall, a beautiful scent. I cut one of the tiny bricks in half and put half in the kitchen and the rest in the living area and got a medium throw for several hours. Repurchase, but two bricks this time so I can melt one in each warmer.
FuturePrimtive The Gloaming, which refers to the twilight time of day. Love that word. It is one of the best marshmallow fireside type of scents ever. But this is not a dupe in any way. There are crepuscular trees, brisk autumn air and mountain mist surrounding the toasting marshmallow ritual. I love it. The throw in my bedroom was medium-light but I didn't mind. I enjoyed the uniqueness of the scent to buy it again. This was an autumn release scent and is not guaranteed to return. Though I will stoop to beg.
