I have been lurking on this sub for fairly awhile now, and I lastly handled myself to an indie fragrance buy as a reward for ending my first semester of PT college!
I selected Colornoise due to the superb worth ($10 for a pattern pack, consists of free transport) and fast TAT. The acquisition expertise was unbelievable. I chosen Three scents for my pattern pack, and a 4th (not my alternative) was included free of charge. I ordered very late on a Monday and it arrived by the next Thursday, so about 7-Eight enterprise days from buy to arrival.
I’m obsessive about vanilla/gourmand scents. My all-time favourite fragrance is Vanilla Vibes by Juliette Has a Gun (sea salt, vanilla, sandalwood), so I used to be on the lookout for scents that had been heavy on vanilla. The scents I selected had been Birthday Cake, Cello, and Pineapple Dole Whip. I obtained free pattern of Cereal Milk. Earlier than attempting them on, I rested these for about 2 weeks.
Birthday Cake / blue buttercream frosting – vanilla cake batter – rainbow sprinkles – completely satisfied birthday reminiscences
This was the scent I used to be most wanting ahead to attempting. Within the vial, the fragrance oil is a really fairly pastel, milky blue. The vanilla cake batter be aware sounded proper down my alley, however I solely bought the barest trace of cake out of the bottle, and on my pores and skin that be aware disappeared utterly. At first whiff, Birthday Cake was spot-on for that particular blue frosting on ice cream cake. There is a tanginess that nearly goes bitter, however stays nice. I requested my sisters to scent it and one mentioned it smelled like yogurt, and the opposite mentioned it smelled like flavored dental fluoride. It wore bizarrely on my pores and skin: after an hour, it smelled nothing like birthday cake and even the way it smelled out of the bottle – musty candy, virtually mildewy. 1/5 – I actually thought I would love it, however it simply did not work with my pores and skin chemistry.
Cello / heat vanilla shea & santal – candy almond milk – clean blonde sandalwood – the sound of a cello
One other scent that theoretically sounded excellent to me, since I am keen on the mixture of vanilla and sandalwood in Vanilla Vibes. Nevertheless, that is much less of the gourmand vanilla I like, and as an alternative very heavy on the shea butter side. There’s a distinct nuttiness attributed to the almond milk, and a heat from the sandalwood. Each my sisters are cellists, so I naturally requested for his or her opinion. One mentioned it smelled like marshmallow, and the opposite mentioned it smelled “spherical”. On my pores and skin, the almond be aware turned marzipan with ribbons of maraschino cherry. The scent lasted about 2-Three hours and had an honest sillage. 2/5 – Not what I used to be on the lookout for in a vanilla scent, however one in every of my sisters favored it.
Pineapple Dole Whip / frozen pineapples & mangoes – contemporary orange juice – lemon zest – ice chilly coconut milk
Though this does not include any vanilla notes, I completely love Dole Whip so I could not resist. Within the vial, the fragrance oil is a milky pastel yellow. Dole Whip is a pineapple comfortable serve, someplace between sherbet and ice cream. Moist, Dole Whip is sort of spot-on for the Disney World Dole Whip – edible pineapple with a creamy backdrop from the coconut milk be aware. On the pores and skin, the scent instantly transforms into a really sugary, synthetic fruity taste. It smells precisely like Marukawa bubble gum, which is a Japanese bubble gum present in each Asian grocery retailer. I scent strawberry, peach, orange, pineapple because it wears on my pores and skin. This scent lasts about 3-Four hours and wears very near the pores and skin. 3/5 – The closest factor I can get to experiencing Dole Whip outdoors of Disney parks or Maui.
Cereal Milk / chilly sugared milk – juicy orange – ripe berries – squeezed tangerine – cereal reminiscences
This was my free pattern, and it did not initially sound interesting to me in any respect. Lots of beauty merchandise have generic fruity scents that scent like Froot Loops to me (Fenty lip gloss, Kosas lip gloss), so I would not have thought to deliberately hunt down a Froot Loops scented fragrance. Within the bottle, Cereal Milk appeared milky white and smelled precisely how I believed it could: sugary synthetic lemon, precisely like Froot Loops. On the pores and skin, the fruity and sugary notes turned extra cake-like, evoking lemon sponge cake with raspberry filling. This ended up being my favourite by far. When it comes to sillage, I wasn’t capable of get whiffs of Cereal Milk until I sniffed near my wrist. Nevertheless, I could not cease sniffing my wrist – the scent appeared to get even higher over time, and lasted about Three hours. 5/5 – Could ultimately full dimension, however I am nonetheless on the hunt for my excellent gourmand vanilla. I am so glad Colornoise included this as my free pattern!
Do any of you’ve got expertise with Colornoise? Another model suggestions as I preserve looking for the right vanilla/sea salt/sandalwood scent?
