The OLDEST Soul
I did it! I sprung for a full ounce of Sucreabeille’s “Old Soul” ($150). The stackable freebies that came with April’s Anniversary Sale were just TOO good, plus free shipping, PLUS plus I had saved up enough sugar points to get $10 off.
The rose, honey and sandalwood in “Old Soul” are just captivating. And can you believe how gorgeous the laser-etched crystal bottle is? It weighs over a pound! I wonder how long this will last me…at least a few years?
I also purchased a sample vial of “Fart Kitten” ($7) – you know, like a skunk. The scent is peony (my favorite floral, after rose), with a little musk.
My children have already absconded with two of the freebies – I gave my son the oil dram of “Death Unicorn” – it smelled like black jelly beans – NO THANK YOU. I was also going to give him the rollerball of “Socks and Crocs” because he is usually wearing socks and crocs, but my daughter wanted it. That’s fine – it smelled like one of those pine trees that you hang off the rearview mirror. That is not the listed scent notes at all – but that’s how it smelled to me. Weird.
The other freebies I received: a dram of “Pear Tree” (it literally smelled like pears and tree – odd); 1ml of “Cream Tea” (smells like cream and tea – I am sensing a pattern here); 1ml of “Garden Witch” (like opening a fresh bag of potting soil – I don’t hate it); a dram of “Raspberry” (it smells like raspberries, but the real fruit – not the blue abomination that I admittedly love so much); 1ml of “Goth as Fuck” (the only repeat for me); a dram of “Danger Noodle” (is this supposed to smell like a snake? No, snake musk smells BAD, but this is more like…I don’t even know what tobacco flowers smell like or why a snake would smell like one?); and 1ml of “Cabana” (remember that orange sawdust that they poured on puke in elementary school – that is THIS – do not want).
Even though it took FOREVER, I enjoyed checking out all these samples…but I don’t love any of them as much as “Old Soul”.
