Beauty Review: Scents That Will Make You Swoon!

It's been a while since I've reviewed a new scent because the last one I received, Pink Sugar (love!), was last year. I'm happy to have in my possession 3 new perfume oils from Sharon Bolton Scents! When I first ripped open (hey, I was excited!) the package I saw 3 little boxes each wrapped perfectly with ribbon, but was a little surprised at how small they are. Each bottle is 1/8 oz, but a little goes a long way. Because it is an oil, it is very concentrated and lasts all day. The bottle is actually a roll-on which is one of the reasons I fell in love with it. It's so portable and small you can throw it in your purse or carry it in your pocket. The roll-on ball is perfect for touch-ups making applications a breeze. The inspiration behind the names of each scent Luv, Soul and Truth are Sharon's "essential scents of life".

Luv - "An intoxicating, ultimately feminine scent of rare pink gardenia, lush Hawaiian white flowers, and a hint of creamy vanilla with a delicate whisper of white musk."

Soul - "Sweet tropical notes that will evoke a memory for your soul. Juicy papaya, luscious pineapple, and creamy coconut with undertones of clean musk. It’s enough to sweep you away to the islands."

Truth - "A refreshing, clean citrus... think tangy lemon-lime... softened by an exotic floral and an airy, sheer musk... fresh like a warm sea breeze!"

My fave of the 3 is Soul. It reminds me of the beach and I love anything coconut or vanilla based. I've already received compliments (husband loves it!). Each perfume oil is $42 (USD) and is worth every penny! Sharon Bolton Scents also carries body lotions, shower creams, soy-based candles, jewelry, and sarongs!

I think I'd go for soul as well.

I love the gourmand, foody, sweet sorts of smells like:

Serendipity 3 - Serendipitious (Chocolate)

Aquolina - Chocolovers (Chocolate :P)

Hilary Duff - With Love (just sweet, warm, amber)

And most coconut perfumes if they can make it with less of a toothpaste scent drydown (thinking to Demeters or Sud Pacifique.. *gag*)
