Smell Like Me!

I have donated some of my samples, and a full, unopened bottle of Solstice Scents "Jack and the Devil" to a raffle for a fellow blogger and friend. It's an awesome raffle, and I recommend checking it out.

The raffle is here.

The items I've put in, are the full size perfume and the following samples:
Red Roan
(Fresh strawberry flecked porridge with maple syrup and adulterated with a splash of white cognac)
Brier Path
(Sun drenched trail leading to a day dream of ripe berries and woods’ rose, rich forest loam, ozone, dark amber and cream.)
White Raspberry
(Tart raspberry and a clean cream accord.)
(A welcome respite: Muskmelon, coconut water infused with bergamot flower, kaffir lime, polished ho wood and sticky benzoin)
Peach Mama
Lavender Sugar
Insalata Nocturna


(You’ve been bewitched! Lecherous: brackish amber, aged vanilla bean and three dark fruits, veiled in darkness and otherworldly secrecy )
Narcosa (A thick haze of tonka and black vanilla, three jasmines, tuberose and ylang ylang.)

Lassi (bad label)
(Fresh mango cream, orange blossom water, black ginger to ground, splash of green tea and a soft squeeze of lime juice.)
(Freshly turned earth, wet leaves, and a spectre ridden wind.)

Fresh sun-washed linens hanging on the clothesline in the spring breeze meets crisp green top notes of English ivy and a touch of new green spring leaves.)

Voluptuous Lilac blossoms in the foreground combine with faint traces of cascading wisteria and subtle, fresh, green grass notes.)

The Morbid The Merrier
Dessert Absinthe
75% full
Saucy Jack 50% full
