Candles -Laughing Out Loud - Green Apple Caramel Crunch

Green Apple Caramel Crunch-Dearest friend Trina made up this fab concoction, our mouth watering green apple & caramelized pralines. This one is delish! Has a med/strong throw to it. I can smell juicy, apples with nutty caramel, very smooth. The caramel isn't burnt at all, like some caramel scents can be. One of my favorites!
Pistachio Dream Cake - The tantalizing aroma of this home-baked delight releases with fresh nutty cake-like top notes, followed by a creamy, buttery spice middle, and finishes a sweet vanilla and sugar base note. Very nice! What I'm getting is nutty pistachio with a soft cake base. This was of medium intensity.
Class Party Cupcakes: Sweet candy topped, vanilla cupcakes with vanilla icing. Sorry to say when I first sniffed this on cold sniff, there wasn't much to sniff, it was very faint. Upon burning, I had to put my nose to the wax pool and all I get is something candy berryish to my nose. A little vanilla in there,but not much, manly berryish.
Overall, what I am getting with this scent is very sweet & fruity. The throw is strong. The marshmallow adds to the creaminess.
This smells like a Raspberry Tootsie Roll to my nose. The chocolate isn't bitter, it's very much like a tootsie roll. Yum.

I love this scent! It's a sweet yet tart strawberry with creamy buttercream. The buttercream tones down the strawberry. To die for! On cold sniff it was faint but once it started to melt that baby was strong!
Wonderful, strong scent, smells like yellow cake mix with a touch of cherry. Yum!
Candles -Laughing Out Loud - Pineapple Cilantro Tart

Pineapple Cilantro smells of a juicy tart pineapple. I too, do not detect any cilantro in this, but that is okay, I love it nevertheless. Very nice for Spring or Summer or even Winter when you want to pretend you're sipping Pina Coladas on a tropical beach. Lovely!
Lotions/ Creams -Vaseline - Renewal Age Redefining Body Lotion

The smell! It was horrid for me, I don't know if I got a bad batch or if this is normal for this one, but it was awful. Rubbed in easily, left my skin soft. The scent lingers. I got this on sale. Due to the scent, I don't think I would repurchase.
The cucumber scent is nice, not too strong. My hair is thick, so the conditioner itself would probably be best suited to someone with thin or fine hair. It is runny, and didn't provide very much slip. But I was able to comb out my hair with no problems.

Love this shower gel, it's very yummy smelling. Smells softly of oatmeal cookies. I like to use this in the winter for it's moisturizing abilities.
Lip Gloss -C.O. Bigelow - Vanilla Malt Shake Mentha Lip Shine
luvspugs 1/17/2008 12:02:00 PM
This does have that smell of frosting in a can, texture was sticky and not as glossy as I had hoped. I wouldn't pay full price for it, but I like the tingly feeling that it imparts. Not that I spend my time sniffing lip glosses, but if I was, this smells a little off for me.
Lip Gloss -C.O. Bigelow - Mentha Root Beer Lipshine

Love the tingle, love the flavor, could be more root beerish, but nevertheless, pretty good lippie. I would only buy these on sale though, paying anymore would be too expensive for a lipgloss.
Shampoo -Burt's Bees - Super Shiny Grapefruit and Sugar Beet Shampoo
luvspugs 1/15/2008 11:44:00 AM
When I first sniffed this out of the bottle, the scent was faint, but when I started using the shampoo the grapefruit scent came through. It's runny, takes a while to get a lather going. My hair felt rough and tangly, just shampooing with this. Would not repurchase.
When wrapped, smells wonderful, just like a coconut cookie should smell like. When it's completely melted, there was no throw. Oddly, there's a slight floral note in it too.
