Before I get started, the founder and woman behind the brand has offered my readers an exclusive 15% off discount code for her store! The code is 'prettybottles' and it's good until 1/2/2011 so you've got a bit of time to sift through and choose what you want. <3
Descriptions from the website:
Tart (fall collection)- No, this is not a pastry blend. This blend is intended for naughty use to side track the melancholy spirit. When it is cold out, warm up a bit... A seductive mix of sandalwoods, florals, and held together brilliantly with a euphoric blend of musks.
Pomegranate - A wonderful fruity scent. Crisp, sweet and tangy! My daughter thinks it smells like "Jolly Rancher" candy.
Spicy - This is your not-so-average Clove based scent. Warm and inviting cloves with nutmeg and rounded out with just a drop of cinnamon.
Candied Apples - Fresh, ripe apples drizzled in a sugar glaze.
VooDoo - Warm and mysterious. An enchanting blend of fresh florals. Jasmine and Lily of the Valley dance with the top note of strong coconut.
Lucky Charm - you can now enjoy the sweet candy marshmallow that I add to the Marshmallow Souffle. A blend of fluffy white marshmallow and sweet sugars! Smells good enough to eat, but tastes terrible...
Cooties - Innocent in a fashion of creams, watermelons, and bubble gum. Everyone needs Cooties!!
Special Edition: Lunar Eclipse - no description available!
My personal review.. keep in mind that we are all different and not all of them are for me. You may LOVE a scent that I hate.. so try it anyway! Some of these wear close to the skin, and others can be smelled by a friend close by. I will put a * next to the stronger blends!
Pomegranate - OH GOD.. When you first put this on, it's like.. the juiciest artificial strawberry flavor that WILL make your mouth water. It doesn't last that long, so you won't be overwhelmed with deliciousness unless you reapply in a few hours. It dries down to a sweet fruity (think mulberry) scent that is quite pleasant!
Spicy - Did someone just make chai tea? Oh, it's Spicy. It smells exactly like chai tea at first with it's clove, cinnamon, nutmeg aroma. It doesn't seem to have cardamom, but somehow my nose picks it up. Is there wood or black pepper in this? There is an undertone of freshness that comes about later in the day when the spice has worn away. I did not mean to rhyme.. It's sophisticated and slightly mysterious, wears close to the skin.
*Candied Apples - This is just as intoxicating as the original, 'Herbal Essences' shampoo fragrance! It's very, very sweet and fruity. I'd suggest wearing this on a date with a hot dude/girl that you want to make out with. It could be even better paired with a wood scent!
*VooDoo - At first, I really liked this scent because it immediately smells like a warm coconut. I feel like the scents used are black and white, super opposite.. and it's cool because they work so well together! The dry down is quite powdery. To be honest, this one isn't my favorite.. as the coconut is a little over the top and I don't often like such warm scents on my skin. It'd be good in cold weather.
*LuckyCharm - Holy crap y'all.. Remember the Lucky Charm marshmallows? I never liked that cereal because of the way the charms felt on my teeth when I'd crunch down on them, *nails on a chalkboard* =( LUCKILY, (lol) this blend is to die for. It's intoxicating with sugared marshmallows.. it smells just like the charms taste. The sugar scent used is a warm type, but I really like it.
Cooties - YUMMY!!! Such a wonderful, sweet and happy scent. If you've ever had Bazooka Joe bubble gum, this smells JUST like the gum! There's a touch of watermelon, and I think I smell a hint of sweet lemon. It's the perfect sugared fruit scent and I don't know why I didn't order it full size as soon as I opened my sample. It's girly and fun! It will last almost all day, but I enjoy reapplying to keep it fresh. A fragrance like this should never die down =) This is my favorite of the bunch.
*Special Edition: Lunar Eclipse - FRESH. a little sweet, definitely a 'perfume' type, not really fruity. I might be smelling gardenia or some white flower. Michael says it smells like something your grandma has but never intends to use. I enjoy wearing it, because it's more floral than I am used to and I always find myself sniffing it and wondering what's in it. When it dries down a bit, it kind of reminds me of Prescriptives - Calyx.. It's a mature fragrance and is my second fave of the bunch!
I hope my review (part 1) was helpful and I really hope you will give Woobie a try! Penny has done an amazing job creating such diverse blends, that everyone will find something they like.. and don't forget to use the discount code even though sample sizes are only a dollar and will last you a while. If you order, I'd love to know what you think so leave a comment here or on any post =)
