Rosegirls' March Pre-Order had a scent line up that pushed all my fragrance buttons. I wanted to grab one of everything but contented myself with getting only what I felt I couldn't live without and then went on to split a pie with my blogger friend Jay over at The Candle Enthusiast. Here is the pricing break down: half pies $20, bags $10.50, muffins $7 and shipping is a flat rate of $10.
Alice in Slumberland is a blend of lavender, cotton candy frosting and honeydew. The sweet lavender that Rosegirls uses is nice. Neither herbal or medicinal, not sharply detergent, a little mellow and sweet. I brings to mind lavender Snuggle liquid fabric softener. It goes great with the juicy honeydew and softly sweet cotton candy frosting. I cut these slices into thirds and melted a piece in my bedroom warmer and it gave off a luscious honeydew and lavender filled throw at a strong level. Thrilled to have more to melt. Now... don't be getting all excited thinking I have melted any of the rest and can tell you about throw. Because I am legit hoarding the rest. At least for a little while. I want to pet my pretties.
Rosegirls Garden/Raspberry Sauce/Vanilla Bean Noel was a trio I blended in my very last custom order from Jenny a couple years ago. I eventually melted it up and was left without this deliciously gorgeous scent in my life. Sad face. But my friend Liz suggested it as Jenny was taking a poll for scents to include in the next pre-order and it made it! I ordered two sets of muffins and they smell just as lovely as I remembered. The tart and sweet raspberry sauce is the strongest with just a breath of soft blooming rose infused in the syrup that drapes over a cloud of vanilla cream. Yes.
Cookie Dough Waffle Cone Wackadoodle is all about that cookie. Thick chewy vanilla bean cookies, crispy thin sugar cookies, royal icing frosted cookies and vanilla pizzelles arrayed in neat rows under glass cases in the local bakery. Walking into an old fashioned ice cream parlor where fresh pressed waffle cones sit like a neighborhood of tee-pees on the marble countertop. Baking cookies with mom in the kitchen and scraping out that sneaky lump of raw cookie dough before she sees you. All these aromatic memories and experiences wrapped up these cupcake liner etched wax muffins. A great vanilla bakery scent.
Cool Beans, an oldie but a goodie, takes sweet lavender and vanilla bean noel chunks and pours peppermint all over them. Well. It used to. For some reason I think I smell the vanilla bean noel as the overpour? Either way... it smells amazing as usual. Minty, creamy, and sweet. This will be a bedtime melt for sure.
Escape to Neverland is one I bought for sheer summer factor. It combines pineapple, orange dreamsicle, raspberry and vanilla ice cream. Normally, I shy away from any and all pineapple scents but I was craving this one for some reason. It has that creamy tart Dole Whip essence with added vibrancy from the oranges and raspberries. It smells like something I would want to drink frozen on the beach.
Jay picked up a bag in Fresh Cucumber and Pink Sugar so I asked if I could swap a chunk with her to sample it. Mmmm MMmm! I am glad I did. Cucumber tends to be too watery for me but that Pink Sugar really takes it to a new level. It is very strong and sweet and relaxing. I am glad Jenny didn't name it Pink Cucumber though...
That is my March pre-order. I skipped this most recent pre-order (though I KNOW I will be kicking myself for not getting at least the half pie in Peppermint Coconut Marshmallow- but guys... I am gearing up for a big giveaway soon... so it is all for you.) Did you order in March? Did you order at this last opening? What did you get? What Rosegirls scent are you missing in your life?
