CFTKR Haul and Review

http://candlesfromthekeepingroom.com/
Ordered 7/1
Arrived 7/9

Before I get started, I've not smelled any of the original LUSH scents mentioned in my review so I can't give a comparison.

I also didn't take a family photo, it wouldn't all fit on my mini studio table. o.o

So first up, freebies!

I was pretty overwhelmed at how many were in this box! My first order with her was about the same size and I received three or four single tarts. This blew me away. :)

Trisha's Pink Cake - my friend Trisha came up with this blend...and it is yummy....a mix of our yummy sweet white cake and our infamous pink sugar....this is excellent.
~~oh my, this is delicious! pink sugar and cake, yes two helpings please!

Caramelized Apple Praline - our sweet apple mixed with a caramel and pralines..sweet yet has the apple to tone down the sweetness.. excellent!
~~oh yeah, this is very yummy, very autumn! Saving this one for fall!

Vanilla Sugar Cookie - A super rich, buttery vanilla cookie with sugar crystals on the bottom notes
~~definitely super rich, and perhaps a touch caramelly smelling to me.

Pink Sugar Passion Berry - a fabulous new blend, many different kind of sweet berries...and blended with our infamous pink sugar..after melting this scent...you will have a passion for berries
~~yay for a dupe in my order! I love this scent and will probably order more when these are gone.

Amish Friendship Bread - the aroma of fresh baked bread with notes of raisin, nut, and a hint of strawberry. This is not a yeast type bread, more of a sweet dessert bread.
~~Very cinnamon-y with a sweet bread background. Very nice and homey smelling.

Raspberry Coconut Cake - our yummy cake, topped with sweet raspberries..they coconut mixed with a sweet cream cheese frosting
~~Yummy as described, but the coconut has a barely there bit of a plasticy smell to it. I like it anyway!

Exotic Passion Fruit - A body shop type-a exotic tropical blend of pineapples, strawberries, peaches, orange and coconunt making this a fun flirty scent.
~~I smell banana in this too, its super yummy! perhaps a reorder.

Cranberry Zucchini Bread - our sweet spiced cranberry with our fresh Zucchini Bread, with notes of freshly grated zucchini, cinnamon and spices.
~~ a little spicy a little tart and sweet comforting zucchini bread. yummy!



Carol offered these samplers as a one time deal, so I got two of them. There are ten tarts in each bag. I thought it would be a great way for me to get acquainted with Lush scents. :)

candy cream - interpretation of Candy Creme type. Fresh citrus highlights thisrich blend of fruit and sugar. Hints of cinnamon create a warm accent for the wild grape accord at the heart of the scent, as rich undertones of fruitwood adds deminsion. Sugared musk blends with creamy strawberry at the base of the fragrance.
~~Just as described, but I'm having trouble picking up the grape scent. I like this one, it'll be a strong melter!

tick tock - interpretation of Tuca Tuca...Orange and Clove add a bright accent to this rich blend of herb and flowers....Sweet Basil balances with the jasmine a theheart of the fragrance, as exotic appeal of patchouli and balsami tones. Amber and sugared vanilla beans are surrounded by sandalwood for a rich, creamy base to the scent.
~~I get jasmine, amber and vanila, not really picking up the patchouli or sandalwood. I like this one pretty well.

I want cake - interpretation of Let them Eat Cake-by Tokyo Milk-This is a delicious upscale vanilla scent. It opens with a soft, sweet blend of sugar cane, coconut milk, vanilla orchid, ending with a note of white musk.
~~I have another dupe of this but from LSC, and they are similar, but I like this one better. Its a little fresher smelling and a little lighter on the musk notes.

Kazi Kazi - interpretation of Karama..best way to describe this fragrance it is a powdery blend of Dragons Blood and Patchouli. This scent is for all you earthy loving fragrance lovers..
~~definitely not for me.You don't want to know what I think this smells like!

Blue Bubblegum Crush - an interpretation of Candy Fluff-remember the days of the blue bubblegum snow cone with more..top notes are fruity with a hint of rose, middle note of jasmine and violet and bottom notes of musk and vanilla.
~~Smells just like the candy fluff in my MCS scrub. This is super yummy and I think it'll burn really strong.

Snow Drops - an interpretation of Snow Cakes. this oil is limited. This is scent is a warm scent, honey,marzipan-almond, rose, cassis and benzoin.
~~I've wanted to sniff this scent for a while now! I like it pretty well, I am getting some cinnamon in this as well as the other notes mentioned.

Liquid Crack - interpretation of Rock Star..Funky and fun frgrance with sweet, fruity notes that leave a fizzy taste in your imagination-pure sugar, reminds me of the old fashion ribbon candy suckers. Yum
~~I really like this one, it smells similar to my mcs scrub of the same scent. a little bubble gummy but mostly fruity, really nice!

B. Better than Ever - an interpretation of B Scent type..This indulgent blend of spice and flowers is sure to please. Grapefruit and orange lead to a classic blend of jasmine, ylang, petit grain, and rose. a blend of warm spices adds intrigue. Soft undertones of moss and musk sweetened with vanilla to create lingering appeal.
~~definitely not for me.You don't want to know what I think this smells like!

Fluff is never enough - interpretation of Keep it Fluffy. Fresh lemon adds sparkle to this luxuriously soft blend. a spiced floral accord at the heart of the fragrance leads to the base of velvet musk, as hints of wood create caressing warmth. A final touch of vanilla sweetens this fragrance.
~~a soft, yet warm inviting and clean scent. Reminds me of something from my tween years, Debbie Gibson Electric Youth perfume.

Cloudy Skies - interpretation of Silver Clouds. A hint of mint lifts this complex blend of fruity floral and spice. Wild rose and orange flower to get a fresh accent of the fir needle, as a spiced wood accord creates dimension with this scent. Rich fruit notes of creamed berry and peach linger with the base notes of clear musk and sensual amber.
~~smells like those spiced gumdrops from around Christmas time! I'd take a bite but I reckon it wouldn't taste like I expect.
