Somehow I've managed to almost completely miss Haus of Gloi's spring releases for the past few years - I've literally never smelled a single one of these scents. So since I couldn't just pick up products in a few scents that I knew I liked, I decided to get samples of the whole line, as well as a few minis (2 pumpkin butters and a bubbling scrub), a whipped soap, and two butterbombs.
After sniffing the whole line, the only ones I plan to buy full bottles of are Komodo and Selkie. I also really like Ploughman, but I'm on the fence about getting a bottle - it's kind of like the spring twin of Samhain, which I love, but don't actually wear that often. We shall see.
An odd little note is that this is the first order I've ever made from Haus of Gloi that didn't include an extra perfume sample. I was a little bummed! I mean, obviously free samples are just a bonus, but it made me wonder if I just somehow got skipped over this time or if they're going to stop including them altogether. While I hope it's not the latter, it won't really affect my purchasing habits either way.
Anyway! Onto the mini-reviews.
Komodo: Sweet, tangy, and tropical. (Reviewed!)
Ruth: Strawberry and green awfulness. It kind of smells like horseradish. (Reviewed!)
Milkmaid: Creamy, powdery pink floral. (Reviewed!)
Ploughman: Damp spring soil. This is very fresh for a dirt scent. (Reviewed!)
Lassi: Gummy bears. The pumpkin butter is less tart than the perfume oil. (Reviewed!)
Selkie: Smells like the ocean, in the best way. (Reviewed!)
Orange Blossom Bee Hive: Orange cream candy.
Strawberries & Cream: Just as described, except less creamy than I expected. Orange Blossom Bee Hive actually smells creamier to me than this one does.
As always, all of this is available from Haus of Gloi.
