It had been a good long while since I have been able to create a custom pie from Rosegirls, but Jenny is opening up her new website and needed some help so we traded. Bartering is business and work was exchanged and I know I left feeling happy and I hope she did too.
Fact: I still have my list of all the blends I wanted to make at the next Rosegirls custom, about 50 or so blends, that never came. So what blends did I choose after years of Rosegirls blending famine? This first one is a sinus clearing masterpiece:
Peppermint/Gilligan's Brew/Shaving Cream- This blue and white beauty is intense. Arctic menthol blasts of pure peppermint, made dapper and refreshing with shaving cream cleanliness with that soft touch of coconut sweetness to balance it. This is one I will melt sparingly. Crossing fingers Jenny adds it to a pre-order because I am in love. I think shaving cream is the scent for 2017.
Raspberry Sauce/Mango Sorbet/Gilligan's Brew- Fruity nirvana. Sandra sold me on Mango Sorbet, that vivacious and bold peachy mango treat. Pair it with that tartly sweet signature Raspberry Sauce and an overpour of Gilligan's Brew, and one killer fruity pie is born. This will be my summer go-to scent.
Americana Wafers (Hot Apple Pie/Blueberry Cobbler/Vanilla Wafers)- An original Rosegirls house blend that stands as one of my favorite fruity-bakery scents. And I am picky about my fruity-bakery. Blueberry pulls up first with some of that spiced apple underneath and all of it is smoothed out nicely by strong vanilla cookies. Delish. Divine. And comforting.
Lavender/Violet/Swizzle Sticks- This was a shot in the dark but I am happy to have made it. The violets are freshly bloomed with a bit of lavender freshness and Swizzle Sticks sweetness folded in. I cannot decide if it is more of a clean scent, a soft floral or a candied floral. I am going to let this one sit and meld for a while before melting it and seeing how it unfolds when warmed.
Rosegirls pies. One of the landmark vendor wax experiences out there. I appreciate that Jenny and her team are offering these gems in the pre-orders now. What blends would you love see made into pies from Rosegirls?
