Lookee What I Won . . .
Haus of Gloi. You already know I love me some Gloi. I don't see this one on their site, but I see on the label it is from their Spring '11 release. It's described on the label as 'Fresh mango cream, orange blossom water, black ginger to ground, splash of green tea and a soft squeeze of lime juice.' Reading that description, I don't think this is a scent I would have ever ordered on my own but that just goes to show, you never know what you'll get sometimes. I quite like this one! There is something fruity about it but there is also something that must be the tea and ginger, something making it more sophisticated than a simple fruity scent. It is a bit 'cooler' and 'brighter' than the fall and winter scents I've been surrounding myself with lately so, yeah, it makes sense that this was a spring release. I'll have to remember to go ahead and try things I might be leery of next time I'm pondering a Haus of Gloi purchase.
AJ's Country Cottage on Etsy, a shop I'm not familiar with, and is in Caramel Pecan Pie scent. Described as 'Divine blend of luscious, creamy caramel and sweet nutty notes with a touch of buttery vanilla,' this is right up my warm, bakery alley!! The vanilla, caramel, and nuts blend together in a nice, warm, creamy scent but you can also pick up hints of buttery crust. I can't wait to melt this one!
So, a very nice little prize package indeed. I'm glad I entered!
