Oh. My. Goddess.
What can I say to convey my newfound adoration for this amazing oil scent? I suppose I'll start from the beginning.
I love wearing natural scents. I feel the are less harsh than synthetic fragrances, and they have a much longer wear time so I can use less. They also lack the indolic nature of many synthetics, and I find they are much less expensive.
I was at the natural food market earlier today just browsing with my friend through some of the essential oils when we both picked this up and gave it a whiff. And wow. The first scent I got was heavily floral, but as each smell cascaded by my senses, I picked up sweet musk undertones, vanilla-like notes, and a light powdery scent at the end. Never had I smelled something so multi-dimensional! I immediately applied it to my pulse points and brought one of the roller ball bottles up to the counter.
I know all perfumes tend to be unique from person to person due to chemistry, but I had no idea how much this would change. And boy, was it for the better! Twenty minutes in, and my wrists had a wonderfully warm, sweet fragrance that still harked back to the in-bottle scent, but rang much more on the vanilla/musk side. And I love that. Darker, warmer scents always resonate with me more. bringing my mind to a very calm, almost romantic place.
I've been wearing it for three hours now and the scent is still going strong. I keep smelling my wrist, basking in the sweetness!
As far as price, I paid around $6 USD for the roller ball bottle, which contains about 0.3 oz. Considering I've seen 0.5 oz. of other brands' oils go for three times as much, I'd say this is a good bargain, especially considering the lengthy wear time of this oil.
The packaging is great. I love roller ball packaging for oils because it helps to control how much is dispensed, and is far less likely to make a huge mess if the cap comes loose.
This immediately has become my HG scent. I may have to buy a couple more bottles just to stock up. I'll also be trying Auric Blends' "Egyptian Goddess" once the store near me gets a new batch. (The batch they got seems to be rather scent-less. Must be a bad bunch.)
