|My OHWTO goodies!|
|My haul =)|
|My invoice and sample were in this pretty little envelope|
Now on to the products I received. All the solid scents and the lip butters were shrink wrapped which I always like to see. These didn't really have easy perforations to pull them off though and I ended up with a deep cut on my thumb trying to cut one of them off (totally my fault though in being clumsy...lol). I also received a sample of Peppermint lip butter in a little clam shell.
|My cute little sample|
Mango Creme - This lip butter at first smelled more like creme than anything else. It's a fairly sweet scent and I really only smelled the mango when it was applied on my lips. If you're not a fan of marshmallow/creme scents I don't recommend.
Lychee Green Tea - This lip butter also smelled more like Green Tea than Lychee. I think I sort of expected the lip butters to smell more like the first thing listed (Lychee and Mango) rather than the last thing listed (Green Tea and Creme).
Peppermint - I think I actually like this simple scented one the best. The peppermint is clean and sweet without being overpowering.
Now for the scents. This is my first foray into solid scents. I really liked how they seemed to melt onto my skin when applied. It was a tad greasy at first but this soaked in fairly quickly.
Carnivale - In the tube, I smell mostly the lemon snow cones and vanilla ice cream. I do catch a hint of the orange soda but I can't really catch the cotton candy. Wet on my skin, the lemon snow cones and the orange soda are the most prominent scent notes. After it dries down, the lemon and orange fade into the background and the cotton candy and vanilla ice cream take center stage. By the end of the day all that's left is a light lingering scent of sweet vanilla ice cream. =) This scent lasted on me a good 6 hours without reapplying.
Viva La Juicy -In the tube, the strongest notes I smell are the Jasmine and Gardenia. I can also pick up the vanilla, amber and sandalwood. Wet on my skin, the prominent scent notes are mandarins and vanilla with hints of the florals and sandalwood. Dried down, it smells exactly the same as it smells in the tube. By the end of the day, the final lingering scent is vanilla with a hint of florals.
Amazing - In the tube, it smells mostly of rose with lemon mixed in. Wet on my skin, the cinnamon smell becomes more prominent which warms the smell of the rose and lemon quite a bit. Dried down, it goes back to smelling pretty much exactly the same as it does in the tube.
Besos Del Sol - In the bottle, the most prominent notes are Jasmine and Gardenia with a hint of coconut. Wet on my skin, the Jasmine and Gardenia are still very prominent but the white grapefruit and coconut as well as a hint of amber begin to surface more. Dried down, the creaminess of the coconut and vanilla become more obvious above the white floral of Gardenia.
This is the first time I've really gotten into Indie company made perfumes and I can see a new addiction growing...=P I already placed and received another order from OHWTO which included 3 more scents as well as the famous Black Magic soaps in cream and bar form...I can tell you now...I am in LOVE with Black Magic! I'll review the soaps and the other perfumes I received once I get the chance to wear the new perfumes for a couple days. =)
