Haus of Gloi Haul and Review

Haus of Gloi
Fast tat as always, less than a week.
Excellent CS.
Loved everything!
TLDR:skip the wall of text and scroll down for eye candy!

We had a little mix up with shipping, but the team of Haus handled it with care and grace. They never cease to amaze me with their customer service. :)

White Raspberry Soap (two bars, one still in tissue) - Tart raspberry and a clean cream accord.
--I really love this soap's scent and I know I love HoG's soap, win win!

Haus Amber Pumpkin Butter - Rich and sultry amber, our own hand blended accord.
--This amber is to die for, completely sultry like she says and quite intoxicating. I LOVE HoG's hand crafted, made from scratch pumpkin butter and this scent is going general catalog! Woohoo! I won't have to ration it out, after all. :D

Boca Chica Pumpkin Butter - Rich gardenia blossom, red mandarin, coconut cream and ripe banana. This sounds super fruity, but it is surprisingly not so!
--Definitely Gardenia! I think the fruit scents enhance the power of the Gardenia, a very nice compliment to it. This is a floral that I wear despite my chemistry amping it like woah. I love Gardenia, because it reminds me of many things special to me. When I was little, Jungle Gardenia perfume was one of the first ones that I wore, and it belonged to my Grandma. Its her favorite/signature scent. Second to that, I have visited Hawaii twice and this scent really takes me back there to that relaxed and beautiful place. Britton has perfectly captured this scent which has brought back many of my precious memories.

Lavender Sugar Pumpkin Butter - Gentle Bulgarian lavender and a heaping spoonful of pure cane sugar.
--Very yummy smelling, I get caramelized sugar and a soft lavender. I was unsure at jar sniff, but I've worn it now and LOVE it.

Moon Dog Perfume Oil - Solar storms erupt: pure cracked coconut, dry sandalwood essence, heated with nutmeg and clove.
--I really love this scent! It reminds me somewhat of HoG's Picaroon, but warmer - not quite as bright. Its comforting and warm, but I think it'd be perfect for summer time too, quite a flexible scent!

Beguiled perfume oil sample freebie - Lemon cake made with the tang of fresh buttermilk and raspberry coulis - an otherwise innocent cake corrupted by cardamon and deceptive pink peppercorns.
--Love this, my second vial of it woohoo! Many thanks to Matt and Britton :D

I love everything I received, as usual! Haus is one of my very favorite etailers. I absolutely cannot wait until the Fall preview! I hear its going to be up sometime early August and then the products released around mid August. :D

These products were bought with my own money and my review was not influenced by anyone or anything other than the products and my own experience.
