The Bathing Garden releases one scent of the month on offer from the 1st through the end of the month and in case you are eyeing pretty much all iterations of the scent offered, the scent bundle is the way to go. There is a 6 week TAT for these so sadly, this particular fragrance, Blackberry Fudge, is not longer up but in the even Shannon releases this scent again I decided to go ahead and post about it. The bundle ran $28.50 plus $7 shipping and contained a full sized scrub, a full sized lotion, a clamshell and a half dozen egg shaped tarts in an absolutely adorable carton.
Blackberry Fudge- Notes: Sweet candied blackberries blended with vanilla brown sugar fudge.
What an excellent blackberry in this! Sweet, slightly tart on the tail end and no floral or perfume notes to be had. The bouncy blackberries are swirled with thick, creamy vanilla butter fudge. It has almost a bakery density to it. Savanna had a friend come over while this was melting and exclaimed that it smelled like cupcakes in our house. Sadly, I let her down. No cupcakes in here. It threw medium to medium-strong in the high ceilinged living area and kitchen. It would probably blow me out of my bedroom so I doubt I will melt it there.
The scrub is gorgeous. I love that the lone blackberry candy in the center has one tiny red sprinkle on it. That tickles me for some odd reason. I have been rubbing my way through my Ever Night scrub so this one will probably be on deck next since I opened it and since I used some of the lotion too.
Same densely packed sugars that exfoliate the skin effectively and offer a healthy dose of aroma. Shannon's scrubs are some of my favorite.
The lotion in this scent is not really wowing me. In the lotion format it becomes too milky and watery for my liking. I adore the formula so much though, I will use it up at any rate. It is cool to the touch, with a pudding stiffness that soaks into the skin wonderfully easy. There is a light sheen of moisturizing oils left but they eventually soak in pretty quickly. I will be using this up with glee over the next month.
This offering had me ordering pretty darn fast. Look at this egg carton.
It holds half a dozen egg shaped tarts scented in Blackberry Fudge (there is a Golden Egg carton under the Spring release but I need to lay my nose on that scent before I buy 9 ounces of it). The label on this is cute but I am not sure how I feel about that egg/chicken pitcher (?). He is a funny looking guy.
Look at these. Will ya just look at 'em?! I think the brown dotties are bits of vanilla bean pod shavings but I could be wrong. They look like beautiful delicate Robin's eggs. They have flat bottoms which makes them nice for posing and they weigh 1.5 ounces each with a few 1.6 ouncers thrown in there. I melted a whole egg with great results. About a medium to medium-strong throw in a large room.
There were a few free samples in the bundle, some Easter egg shaped tarts that I gifted to my sister and this mini scrub in Life Is A Circus (white birthday cake, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries and blackberries).
I do have a nice Circus and Spring order that should be coming any week now. This one was placed two weeks prior to that one. Did you buy an Bathing Garden eggs? Scrubbing up with anything good?
