first sniff impressions: solstice scents spring #1

Standard
Note the cute little bird’s nest – Solstice Scents’ package decorations are the best.
Another seasonal release, another First Sniff Impressions post! This time it’s from Solstice Scents, whose spring scents are, again, a completely mystery to me. Somehow I seem to have missed everyone’s spring releases for the last few years. But that just means NEW STUFF, even if it’s just new to me, which is always more exciting than restocking familiar stuff.Let’s get to it!

Blossom Jam Tea Cakes: Fruity cake. I love this. (Reviewed!)

Chantilly Cream: Peaches and cream. Very soft and delicate. (Reviewed!)

Chiffon: Sweet lemon. Lemon meringue pie, kind of. (Reviewed!)

Courtyard: VERY strong. Green, lavender, and woods.

Devil’s Millhopper: Really, really green. Like a thick carpet of damp moss.

Banana Nut Bread: At first this smelled exactly like banana bread, but the more I sniff, the more I get this rummy note that comes off really plasticky. Might be different in use.

That’s that! Just from cold sniff, Blossom Jam Tea Cakes is my favorite, and I really wish it came in a glace or a ganache, but alas, it does not. So unless Chiffon or Devil’s Millhopper really grab me when I test them out this will probably be the extent of my haulage from this release.

As always, everything is available from Solstice Scents.

  1. I love Chiffron!
    Blossom Jam Tea Cakes sounds good but tea scents are hit or miss with me.

    Have you tried Venus Libertina from Arcana yet? I can’t wait to read your review on it so I can decide if I want it or not!

    • The tea note actually isn’t super strong in BJTC, at least on cold sniff. It’s more sweet and jammy. Chiffon is lovely but I think it might be too similar to the 47 other sweet lemony scents I have in my stash.

      I haven’t! I do have it, though – it’s not something I’d have chosen for myself but Julia sent me a bottle of it since she used my illustration on the label. I’ll try to do a review of it in the next couple of days!
