Haus of Gloi - Summer reorder

My second order for Summer items, had to get some Sanctum PB in full size. It was that good!

Sanctum - I get a crisp lime top note and the rest glorious almost candied smelling watermelon. This is a wonderful blend for summer!

Troika - you all know I love this one! :D

Insalata Nocturna - I really am surprised at this scent. I do not like greens or fresh scented things to wear but I really dig this scent. HoG has pleasantly surprised me once again. This is a really bright crisp scent, reminds me of something similar in brightness/tartness as a grapefruit. I barely smell the tomato leaf smell that I expected would be overpowering, but with this its like an afterthought and very subtle. Beautiful scent!

Apothecary - I don't like the smell of leather so I was quite skeptical about getting this one, but its my goal to sniff every scent HoG makes. I'm on the fence with this one - all the other scents in it are really nice, its just when that leather creeps in toward the end, my eyes shut and my face wrinkles up. lol

Depravity (perfume oil) - In the vial, its pretty pungent and the clove is really strong, but I wore this for a day and was so pleasantly surprised with how it developed on my skin. Perhaps not a "go to" or "reach for" scent but I enjoyed wearing it and will use on occasion.

Honeysuckle Lemon Curd free sample - I already have and love this one so, score!

Love their lip balms, not greasy or messy. Just the right amount of soft/firmness and they stay put well.

The Sweet Rosa lip balm is everything I had hoped for. I go to a little Greek restaurant where the owner makes Rose Cake on occasion, but she has been so busy she hasn't had it the last 3 or 4 weeks I've visited. Now I can get my fix til I can get more of her cake!

Haven't opened the Lime soda balm yet, but read rave reviews on it so I got it too. :)

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