Avatar and (glittersniffer) solid perfumes this time

We saw Avatar this tuesday, the last day it was showing in the nearby theater. So, are most movies gonna be in 3D from now on? 'Cause that would be awesome! During the first few moments in the movie, I wasn't able to follow the narration, although my eyes were glued to the screen, because I was still trying to take it all in! The feel is almost like being in a video game. Really enjoyed the movie too...if a friend who hadn't seen it yet asked me to go with them, I'd watch it again. The trailers shown before the movie started were all in 3D too, one of them was Alice in Wonderland, which looked great, and which I'm totally looking forward to.

So...I don't know how to segue into this but this post was really meant to be about the solid perfumes I got from Glittersniffer awhile ago. I guess I just enjoyed watching Avatar that much, and wanted to share it. :) I got a pretty good deal on the solid perfumes. These were a cyber monday sale listing and was supposedly for 10 solid perfumes only, but I had convo'd Lela and was asking some questions, when she said she'd throw in 2 additional, yahoo! They were about $10 less than the regular listing, the only difference was that not all the scents were available.

I picked mostly gourmand scents, if you'll notice!

Lime, Caramel Apple, Stitches, Tanning Bed, Pina Colada, Milk Chocolate, Cotton Candy, Glitter, Smores, Birthday Cake, Warm Laundry, and Fruit Salad.

I thought they were going to be in twist-up tubes, but I like these better, they're so cute. And most of them do smell just like the real thing. Cotton Candy is all banged up because my daughter put the whole thing inside her mouth and tried to eat it! Sometimes I feel like doing that myself, especially when I'm hungry and put on Birthday Cake. This remains my fave, and second to it, Lime, which isn't overly citrusy, and quite subtle, as all of these are, but still a bit tangy which I find refreshing in our hot weather.

I use Caramel Apple and Cotton Candy when at home, just because, but sometimes I unexpectedly smell some coconut in them, which I find out of place. Sniffing Smores and Milk Chocolate makes me look for something sweet to eat, Smores especially, which is sweeter and less milky among the two. Fruit Salad I haven't been using much because it smells too much like cream to me, and again had that coconut note.

The non-gourmand scents in the bunch are Glitter, Stitches, Tanning Bed, and Warm Laundry. I do like Warm Laundry, it's much like being surrounded by a pile of still warm and a bit damp from the dryer, newly washed, fabric softener-soaked clothes.

These were a really fun purchase, and I'd recommend you try them if you want something much milder than perfume, if you like gourmand scents and a few unique scents (like Freshly Dug Dirt), or a fragrance in solid form that's easier to tote around. I always have one in my purse :)

Also, I figured out why I was having a hard time getting clearer photos. I forgot to push the macro button on the camera! Haha. I guess that's what happens when you don't blog for a while...

P.S. I'll be posting a cheap blog sale shortly!

I got mine from Anderson Soap Company on etsy (dennisanderson.etsy.com). I got the chance to sample their solid perfumes as I won a $25 GC to their store. I got the Pure Romance and Lost in Paradise scents. :)

Love your haul. I like your taste. Now you're tempting me to buy a candy-scented perfume. LOL at the daughter. Good thing that nothing bad happened to her.

Lots of love,

Ida said...

Ooh thank you Golden :) Sweet gourmet scents are just so nice to smell at times. Hehe, good thing my daughter wasn't able to open the solid perfumes!
