I bought this and promptly gave it away. I like my citrus to smell like citrus, fresh and crisp, and this was overwhelmingly perfumey floral and musk on me both of which I really dislike.
Fragrances -Trish McEvoy - Blackberry and Vanilla Musk #9 EDP

On me, the blackberry disappears quickly and I'm left with a very sweet musky scent without fruitiness. Yucky, did not like at all.
Yucky, didn't work for me at all and I generally love citrus scents. Hated the dry down, sweet and weird smelling like all the Fresh scents I've tried.
Did not like this at all. I love sharp citrus scents and could detect no grapefruit in this at all just a heavy floral that made me feel nauseous. I also got it on my clothes which had to be taken to the cleaners because the scent really lasts and I couldn't stand the smell.
Fragrances -L'Artisan Fragrances - The Pour un Ete

My favorite L'Artisan fragrance and tea scent. Jasmine, citrus, honey and minty to my nose. Perfectly fresh and clean. Love this and have bought many replacements.
This is a lovely, rich, very thick buttercream textured cream. Leaves skin soft, sinks right in without greasiness. I love it! Got it in the vanilla cream scent, subtle and yummy. I also received a sample of the vanilla grapefruit which will be my next purchase, very true fresh grapefruit, reminds me of CSP Pamplemousse.
I ordered this in the Citrus Linen scent. It cleaned OK, not great, I prefer my shampoo to lather more and it didn't wash out easily. The smell was like lemon bathroom disinfectant, very harsh and unpleasant. Waited 6 weeks for it to arrive too:( Used it once and trashed it, a complete waste.
Moisturizers -Aubrey Organics - Rosa Mosqueta Rose Hip Moisturizing Cream

This is the best moisturizer I've ever used. I rotate this on days/nights when I don't want to use my 10% glycolic moisturizer. The Rosa Mosqueta cream is a rich moisturizer but don't let that scare you off. It sinks in and leaves my face very, very soft without being greasy. I have normal skin with a oily t-zone but since I've been using this my skin has normalized and I've had no breakouts and my t-zone is no longer oily. I've found my holy grail face cream! Best of all, it's fairly inexpensive and vegan.
Fragrances -Comptoir Sud Pacifique - Amour de Cacao

Yummy scent. Smells like chocolate chip cookies. Very comforting when it's cold outside. I like to wear it to bed.
Fragrances -Comptoir Sud Pacifique - Vanille Abricot

I love this. When I intially purchased I didn't really care for it but it really grew on me. Very warm and sweet, smells like a cross between cotton candy and a jelly donut. Really lovely. I get the most compliments (from men) when I wear this.
Very fresh and tart. Smells like you're peeling oranges. Very true. Love this and it lasts quite well on me. Sometimes I wear Kumquat with CSP Vanille and end up smelling just like a orange creamsicle.
The best top coat ever! Dries super quick, shiny, and makes my manicures last.
All the scents smell the same after the initial dry down. The base of the puddings smells weird to me. Did not care for the little ziplock bags either.
Fragrances -Demeter - Dirt and Dandelion fragrances
Helena 11/25/2001 6:13:00 AM
Dirt is my fave Demeter fragrance. Smells earthy/musky but very fresh. The only (noncitrus) fragrance I can tolerate when it's hot, humid, and hazy.
It smells like tomato. I don't want to smell like a tomato...
