Sudsy's Soaps and Scents, Haul #3

Website: Sudsy's Soaps and Scents

I left out about 7 bottles, so there's more scents listed below than pictured. Just too many to fit!

Body Sprays:
Banana Cream Pie - A delectable blend of ripe banana, creamy mounds of vanilla, hint of apple and a base of sandalwood & rum.
-- this is yummy creamy gooey smelling banana cream pie covered in meringue, quite sweet and almost like you had a spoon full of pie in front of your mouth getting ready to nom on it.

Blue Sugary - A wonderful harmony of caramelized sugar and vanilla blended with heady notes of cedar and tonka bean. The heart of the fragrance is rich with energetic notes of licorice, patchouli, lavender and coriander, freshened with crisp bergamot and mandarin, and finished with soothing notes of anise. Our interpretation of a scent by a popular co.
--Not my typical choice of scent, but I thought I'd take a chance with this one. I smell just about everything listed except the patchouli. The licorice is warmed up by the caramel/vanilla, cedar brightens it just a bit and I get a hint of lavender though difficult to detect - I don't smell orange and dono what bergamot smells like on its own. I'm thinking fun halloween scent with this one!

Champagne - Smells so much like the real thing that you could swear the bubbles are tickling your nose! The is a slightly sweet and effervescent.
--soft and a little powdery to my nose, definitely girly and feminine. Surprisingly, it did not make me sneeze! I wore it one day this week and loved every minute of it!

Frozen Margarita - Essential oil of Lime and Mandarin Orange; including notes of Southern Valencia, Lemon, and Sea Salt; followed by middle notes of frothy iced Guava Nectar, Strawberries, and Pineapple; all sitting on base notes of Brown Sugar, Vanilla Rum, and Musk.
-- I get straight up tart lime. I really like this one! Tart and lime don't sound to me like something I would like, but I totally do. :) I get a hint of the strawberry, orange and pineapple but I'm not detecting musk, brown sugar or rum. I am pleasantly surprised at this one!

Jamaica Me Crazy - Top notes of mandarin, Mexican lime, tangerine, and kumquat; middle and base notes of watermelon, tart green apples, cantaloupe, and honeydew melon.
--Very fruity and bright, ready for summer! I think this would be awesome in a scrub for that morning wake me up feeling while showering. Very refreshing!

MM Musk - A special blend of marshmallow with secret notes. Very much a "Gourmand". A Sudsy's Soaps blend. Our #1 best seller!
--Bottled heaven! I don't typically like musk much but this got so many raves here I had to try it and they're absolutely right. This is the most wonderfully well balanced marshmallow scent ever. Its clean, sweet, I can just imagine biting into a giant fluffy marshmallow when I sniff this. Gah its yummy, I've already ordered more products in this scent.

Pinkberry Mimosa - Sweet strawberries, fuchsia raspberries, tart pomegranate, sparkling citrus fizz and effervescent mimosa. Delish!
--Very sweet and very fruity and pink! I really like this one a lot. Great for summer time, its sweet but the floral lightens it up so that its not too heavy.

Sweet Strawberry - A farmer's fresh blend of strawberry, raw sugar cane with a hint of green apple and vine.
--I'm not crazy about apple but I ordered anyway. This smells to me like a blend of snow angel and apples. I might try wearing it, but not lovin bottle sniff.

Violet Cotton Candy - Fluffy mounds of cotton candy laced with sweet, shy violet. A Sudsy's blend.
--Just like the description, sweet fruity cotton candy with a hint of a soft powdery violet. I haven't tried it yet but I would guess that this is one of those scents where you need to be intimately close to smell it. ;)
Galaxy of Stars - An explosion of citrus and floral. Uplifting aromas of lime, orange and cognac. Our intrepretation of a scent by a popular company.
--another shot at stretching my scent limits. This one smells like a cleaner I used to use, maybe Fantastic brand or an orange cleaner. I don't recall but I am thinking I probably won't want to wear this one.

Raspberry Zinger - This wonderful creative scent begins with sweet raspberry and toasted coconut, middle notes of buttercream frosting, and bottom notes of freshly baked yellow sponge cake. Makes you very hungry!
--a new favorite of mine for sure. This is so super yummy smelling I could totally eat it. Very close cousin of my Pink Macaroon!

Shampurest - Capturing the calming and relaxing aroma of soft rose petals surrounded by lavender, jasmine, ylang ylang and bergamot on a background of exotic patchouli. Our version of a scent by a popular company.
--another "outside the box" scent for me, its really really green and herbal smelling. I'm thinking I need to layer it with something sweet, it smells a bit clinical to me. =/

Shelter Me - After a crazy day away from home there's nothing better than the comfort of your home. Instant relaxation with this uplifting and comforting fragrance blend of black currant, cassis and fresh citrus tones of orange and bergamot. Our intrepretation of a scent by a popular company.
--trying to step outside my sweet fruity foody box with this one, dice. First I get licorice, then I get pot. Yep, it smells like cannabis to me. blech, Jas sniffed and understood where I got that scent idea, so maybe its not just me. Anyone want a decant?! rofl, j/k

Sugar Plum Dreams - A sweet mixture of plums sprinkled with sugar as they dance through the dreams of a child as they lay asleep the night before Christmas.
--this is spicy and very plum like and sweet. No cinnamon notes, just some kind of rich spice. Perfect for autumn and perhaps Christmas time. I could totally see layering this with peppermint to frost it up or with white chocolate to make it richer. mmmm!

Wood Berry - An explosion of wild blackberries and strawberries, combined with just the right amount of earthy woods.
--at first I wasn't sure about this one, but I really like it now that I've had it for a few days and sniffed it a few more times. Its definitely got a lot of berries going on and the woodsy scent is soft, not sharp or super earthy. Its well balanced, and I think will be great for a kind of pre-fall scent or early spring.

Berry Vanilla - This summery blend includes wild blueberry, bergamot, juicy blackberry, vanilla cream, raspberry sugar and buttermilk musk. Our interpretation of a scent by a popular company.
--I ordered this hoping for a bbw dupe, as they were out of the spray when I hit the sale. This does not disappoint! It smells just like it, if its not exact its pretty darn near!

Pink Macaroon - A mouth-watering blend of our Pink Sugary surrounded by fresh shredded coconut and warm baked sugar cookie.
--sinful! I had to have every product in this scent, ya know. lol

Custom blends I requested:
Lavender dream cake blend - scent notes: vanilla ice cream, caramel, marshmallow, sugar, lavender, and cake. I requested this because of all the talk about the no longer obtainable jje scent I've never sniffed. (jje sold and will be reopening btw) So I can't compare it, but I can tell you that it smells very much like the Haus of Gloi Lavender Sugar scent. I wore the HoG pumpkin butter today and this spray and they were perfect together. :) I was on the fence about this one and the hog pb at bottle sniff for a day or so, but I really do like it. Its got a caramel note which is distinct, a nice floral lavender and some vanilla to soften it up.

ripe raspberries and chocolate blend - She's named it Chocolate Raspberry Drizzle, and it smells just like a dark chocolate truffle with a raspberry center. Yum!

pink sugar and chocolate blend - She's named it Pink Chocolates and it is delicious smelling! Its like dark chocolate and milk chocolate swirled together all melty and gooey then sprinkled with pink sugar. I really LOVE this one. :)

banana cream pie and chocolate blend - Now named Chocolate Banana Cream, smells just like you'd expect - good enough to bite! :D I'm happy with this one too.

shower gels - I love her shower gels! So bubbly and slick enough for my bath pouf to not scratch me. Ya know, some soaps just aren't slick enough for my tastes. lol I've already reviewed these scents in previous reviews, so I'm only gonna do that last one, and its an awesome one!
pink macaroon
purple boxed delites
tropical guava
sweet tooth fairy - Strawberry cotton candy with a sprinkling of pink bubble gum. Our interpretation of a fragrance by a popular co.
--why did I not order this sooner? It is absolutely wonderful! Very sweet, very yummy - I've already ordered more products in this scent. :)

clamshell tarts-
Mt. Dew - Soda with a jolt, this classic lemon & lime fizzy pop is so good you will swear you can smell the caffeine and feel the bubbles tickle your nose.
--definitely lime and lemon! Smells fresh and citrusy, yum!

Pink flamingo - Ripe cherries, freshly squeezed orange juice and pink lemonade!
--my gosh I've been melting this since the day I got my order, which I think was Monday. Its still throwing in the room its in and its still absolutely lovely! Ashley suggested this scent to me and I am so glad she did.This is a dupe to my mom and I's beloved Roseberry scent that has been so elusive to us. I am so super happy about this, I could hug and kiss her if she were here! Mwaks to you Ash!

Black Currant - A simply amazing fragrance with strong top notes of black currants, strawberries and mulberries; middle notes of Granny Smith apples; bottom notes of rose and jasmine.
--I like this one really well, its a soft kind of berry scent. It will be great to melt on a chilly fall evening. :)

I got a free sample of sugar cubes and these are way better than the first batch I got. These are perfection! I mushed a piece off to wash my hands with and I love it! I am excited to try them out in the shower.

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.
