Freshly Bitten- Fun fruity scent with notes of lime and orange,
slight fizzy notes, and a berry, cherry sweetness.
First let me mention that Sweet Fixations owner Tia was having problems with her printer or something and her labels will look like this for a while . . . basic black, white, with pink logo, instead of the usual colorful round one with a scent related picture like we're all familiar with.
Anyway, if you kinda tip your head to the right and look at the tart in the pic, the white embed is actually a portion of vampire teeth. See it? Get it? Goes along with the name Freshly Bitten? That's cute and worth pointing out.
An-y-way! I've had this scent before in handcrafted soap and I think maybe in tart form from some other vendor, and while I've always liked it, the sort of fizzy note was the one down note for me. So when hubby picked this one while I was plotting my big gift certificate order, I was kind of blah about it. He had it melting all day yesterday though and I was very surprised how much I liked it! Well, I have always liked this scent but yesterday, this version or something just had me loving it. The fizzy note is mild in here. Hubby said he picked it up easily, but for me it almost wasn't even noticeable. I liked that because it didn't distract from the bright, cheery, fruity scent. You do get the orange and the cherry and the lime. There is sweetness, and just a bit of tart, a bit of zing. It's a juicy sweet, like punch. I really really like this one!
Hubby melted this entire 1 oz. tart in a tea light warmer in the living room, which is on one end of the house. I could easily smell this throughout the house, and even picked up traces of it when I was outside, doing some yard work near the living room windows. In the room the warmer was in, this was a strong scent. It was not overpowering though, just very there on a 'What's that fun scent?' level. In other rooms it was a lighter scent but still easily noticed. And it was long lasting! We melted it three times (12 hours) and it was only at the end of the third melt that the scent finally started to die out.
This is an awesome summer scent without being the usual tropical type. This would be good year-round as a bright pick-me-up when you're sick of pumpkin and cinnamon scents, and when you're tired of being cooped up for winter. I will definitely repurchase this one!
