My favorite Scents: Bamboo Sugar Cane: a green bamboo with citrus (lemon highlight) but so much more intoxicating than that, I notice a fresh almost green mango (or exiotic island fruit) and a hint of pinapple! It's fresh and light (not musky) and not one of her sweet foody scents although implied in the name. (not listed anymore but makes it for me anyway!) Impeckable service!, and Pink Sugar (dupe) = exactly as stated!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
So far, I have been very impressed with Bissy's scent quality. Her products are strongly scented, and I have discovered a couple favorites!
I tried her dupe of Amour De Cacao in the Scrub me Smooth scrub, and wow, so amazing! Everytime I used it in the shower it was bliss. Such a yummy, foody, kinda chocolately scent. Not pure chocolate though, it has a different edge to it. Kinda creamy, and others have said that this scent has orange in it, but I don't detect it to much. It is in there though, helping to make the scent delicious.
I have an EDP in Orange Juice Cake as well. It is a yummy, sweet and very orangey scent. You can definatley smell the cake.
I tried her Raspberry Zinger in a roll on and I was diappointed, this is not the scent for me. It seems to be a very strong scent though, but I have no idea how close it is to a raspberry zinger because I've never actually had a real one, haha. Its a sweet, berry sugar/pastry scent with a little twang to it. Just not for me, but I'm sure its a great scent for those that like the smell of raspberry zingers.
So far I have been very impressed with Bissy's products, and I highly reccomend you give her a try!

SCENTS I HAVE TRIED:
*7 UP POUND CAKE* - in Luxury Body Spray. - Will not re-purchase. Too sticky-sweet for me. A lemon Lime and Pound Cake Combo with a faint, spicy buttery note.
*CREAM & SUGAR* in Silky Body Butter - YUM YUM, Re-purchased in more Butter, Mist and Dina gave me a soap. Sweet and smooth with a butterfat/milkfat creany component. Nice as a solid perfume, too. LIGHT.
*FLAPJACKS* in Goatmilk Lotion - YES! Wonderful syrupy-goodness.
*KRISPY KREME* in Goat Milk Lotion - WILL NOT REPURCHASE - too "doughy" smelling.
*PINK SUGAR* in Spray, Butter and Primrose Lotion - A nice scent - but not 100% true to Aquolina's original. Great in a spray and butter. Not very strong as a lotion. Good as a solid perfume, too.
*RASPBERRY LEMONADE* in Spray - Terrific tangy treat with a powdered Lemon-y dry-down.
*ORANGE JUICE CAKE* in Spray and Body Butter. THIS IS A MUST-HAVE. Also tried the Conditioning Shampoo - but was not impressed by the thick "goopy" consistency of it.
*GEORGIA SUNRISE* received in swap. Silky Body Butter. Mist. Shea butter soap. This is soooo nice - a strong raspberry peach with a warm almost amber-y dry-down (although amber is not mentioned). VERY Fruity - so if you don't like raspberry or peach - don't get it. I happen to LOVE this.
As a bonus - Bissy's sent me *ISLAND KISS* - a fruity tropical combo. (Escada type) Nice - but not my fave.
*PINK LEMONADE* - solid perfume & EDP - Wonderful, just as BB describes - Sweet sugar, tart lemons and a hint of fluffy cotton candy. SO NICE! Ordered as an EDP and ADORE THIS for summer. (Just watch out for the bees.)
BEACH BABY - solid perfume - strong "baby Powder" notes and soft florals. Nice - but not for me.
JOLLY RANCHER CANDY HORRIBLE - may have gotten an old, rancid RAOK. The sample of solid perfume I received may have been rancid. It smelled so foul on cold-sniff that I never applied any - I just pitched it.
BROWN SUGAR Solid Perfume - warm, sweet, pure brown sugar. Very nice. Would be great on its own or blended with other scents. Re-purchased in Roll-on EDP, Butter and Mist. LOVE IT!
*BIRTHDAY CAKE* It was hard to tell from the Q-tip sniffie - warm "yellow" cakey scent with vanilla notes. I also got a RAOK of this sent to me in Watery-old Goat Milk Lotion and Mist and May I say that I HATE IT. I detect both cherry AND almond (though it is not supposed to have 'em) and PLASTIC and yellow cake and butter and vanilla. This just DOES NOT work for me. Too bad. I am sticking with OJ Cake or Lemon Pound Cake for my Cakey Fixes
*WHITE TEA* - solid perfume - Had very little "tea" in it and lots of spicey weirdness - I detected pink peppercorns and amber - very strange and not at all what I had expected. Not for me.
*LEMON POUND CAKE* Dina threw in a sample of this as a silky body butter. It is yummy, buttery pound cake with a strong vanilla and mild coconut note, gently kissed with lemon. Nice - but not nearly as good as OJ cake. If you are a "foody" lover - try this!
*LIME CILANTRO* What a great and refreshing scent - I ordered it in the White sugar scrub which is not too oily and moderately abrasive. A great choice. I do not detect much Cilantro - mostly sweet, green, tangy lime. Re-ordered as a roll-on EDP. REFRESHING
*SPA TONIC* this is a unique, somewhat green, somewhat citrusy scent - also great for spring and summer. Much better in the MIST than in the body butter. Would make a great room spray as well. Bissy's site says: "Clean and refreshing concoction of green tea, cool aloe, and lemon." I do not really get too much of the tannic note - but the aloe (green) and lemon are there for sure. Re-ordered as a roll-on, shampoo sample (NICE) and solid perfume (not the best formulation for this.). EDP
*CUCUMBER CANTALOUPE* "Cool and revitalizing blend of the crisp and clean aroma of garden fresh cucumbers and juicy, ripe cantaloupe." I detect a very crisp cuke from this indeed. Great as a MIST - very light as a body butter - might try super-scented next time.
*TANGERINE PEACH PARADISE* Conditioning Shampoo (wanted In-Shower Moisturizer but ordered this by mistake.) LOVE THIS!! Smells just like CH's Pooka Shells. This is so yummy smelling. A light tangerine/peach combo. Blissful. NOTE: Dina sent me this as an In-Shower Moisturizer FREE for my "oops". She is lovely and Tangerine Peach is a great scent.
*STRAWBERRY JAM* Solid perfume - given free as a sample. A sweet, clear red-berry scent. Pure Berries and Jam. Nice - but not for me. I don't like strawberry scented products - but if you do this is a great choice.
*AMOUR DE CACAO* Got this as a solid perfume and a body butter sample. Lovely - similar chocolate/faint orange of the original CSP but not quite as elegant - but also longer lasting. Not plastic-y. DEVINE and a great CHEAP alternative to CSP.
*BEST FRIENDS* Got a sample (paid 1.00) as Goat Milk Lotion. A nice sweet/tart berry scent of mixed berries and fruit. Very Berry - like it better than Strawberry Jam but not as much as Georgia Sunrise. NOTE: Discontinued on BB's site.
*APRICOT CREAM PUFF* Received in swap as Body Butter and Mist. Nice - but I like CH's Apricot Cream cake better. BB's is more tart and less vanilla. Will not purchase.

Here are the scents I have tried:
TOASTED MARSHMALLOW: in b&b+ tarts: amazingly subtle and lingering sweet marshmallow scent. No toasted note to my nose.
ORANGE JUICE CAKE: in b&b + tarts: perfect mixture of sweet orange+ cake.
RASPBERRY ZINGER: in b&b+ tarts: a must have. Sweet raspberries with cake and a creamy note.
COCONUT CREAM PIE: b&b: great soft, foody coconut sniff.
PINK SUGAR: b&b. Perfect dupe, the strongest and longest lasting Pink Sugar I have tried (I have honestly tried if from about a dozen etailers!)
PINK CAKE (PINK SUGAR+BIRTHDAY CAKE custom combo): b&b beautiful Pink Sugar softened by the birthday cake. Less woodsy and musky than straight Pink Sugar.
FIG LYCHEE: b&b: very strong fruity, fresh sniff. Very nice for spring and summer.
RASPBERRY TOMATO LEAF: b&b. Very refreshing, green and natural smelling.
IBIZA HIPPIE: b&b: never smelled the original, this is a tropical fruity sniff to me, not sweet or overpowering at all.
HAPPY (CLINIQUE DUPE): b&b perfect dupe.
COCONUT PEAR: b&b: amazingly beautiful scent. Name doesn't begin to describe it, IMO. Non foody sniff, fresh and beautifully feminine.
BUTTERCREAM: finally, a non plasticky buttercream sniff! I searched high and low for this!
VANILLA BEAN NOEL: intoxicating vanilla caramel cookie smell.
See my reviews of tarts for scents I have tried in tarts only.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Dry Hair: Red Eyes: Blue
Toasted Marshmallow: AAAAMAZING! My favorite etailer scent to date. Exactly like a toasted marshmallow, even with the toasted note. A lot of people have said it's too light, but I think it's perfect and I get tons of compliments on it!
Orange juice cake: Delicious jucy orange mixed with white cake! Dries down to a light cake scent. Yummm!
Mango sage tea: At first it smells strongly identical to hotel shampoo, then eventually dries down to an herbally licorice, and then just a clean herbal scent. Not for me.
Black Raspberry Vanilla: A little sharper than BBW but layers great with it and lasts a long time. Great ceamy berry scent!
Jack Frost: Cool mint and vanilla. A little metallic or something to begin with, but calms down to a creamy vanilla. Very refreshing.
Hot cocoa: (tarts) The perfect creamy chocolate scent!!! Made me want cocoa. Absolutely wonderful.
Fresh fruit slices:The scent is just delicious, it's a sweet fruity scent, that smells like orange soda, or a lollipop. It's so fresh and light! gorgeous for summer or when you just need a pick me up.

I have Bissy's brown sugar and flapjacks in silky body butter!! The flapjack scent is a slight slight bit spicy (not too bad but I could tell it was there) and a little goes a long way!! Not too much or your head will feel like you hit it with a pillow case full of lotions..LOL...it is a bit sweet but good!! Brown Sugar (no spice what so ever) smells like the stuff right out of the bag!! Great!!

I have tried the following:
Cassada - Perfect blend of white cake and berries. Reminds me of th real thing!
Monkey Farts - Bananas, mangoes and coconuts make this fantastic.
Bermuda Triangle - Tropical and lovely.
Cake Bake - A real winner, with vanilla and a pinch of cinnamon. The dry-down is fantastic.
Got Milk - Creamy and sugary.
Jungle Love - Tropical with a fantastic green smell. Dry-down is green.
Apple Jack N' Peel - Smells like Apple Jack cereal to me. Apple with a kick of cinnamon.
Ruby Red Grapefruit - Smells just like the Ocean Spray Juice. Scent lasts and dry-down is sweet.
