Future Primitive Summer

Disclaimer - all products were purchased by me

I was planning to sit this release out because I have most everything from last year but damn, Tiggy introduced a new scent that I just had to have. It doesn't make sense to order just one thing so I added a few others. The order seemed to arrive faster than normal. Usually it takes around two weeks but this one came in around 10 days or so. 

Two bath truffles and two free samples Tiggy included. Cold Pillow is reviewed below and Wild Grass & Quince Jam is one I reviewed last year but to recap, it's a sweet grass and tart red fruit blend. 

Cold Pillow
A cool, cotton pillow filled with Cotswold lavender buds, scented geranium leaves and Indian vetiver grass. 100% essential oil blend. 

Herbal lavender accentuated by a heavy hand of something sharp and green with hints of lemon. I believe that is vetiver. I had expected this to be more of a bedtime scent, but it's an eye-opener that would probably be better suited for the mornings. 

Cottingley Beck

Fresh-picked heirloom mint & basil sitting in a vintage flask of cool, crisp water from Cottingley Beck. 100% essential oil blend

This one is a flip flopper, sometimes smelling like spearmint gum and other times smelling more like sharp, bitter basil straight from the garden. It's fresh and stimulating, perfect for when you need that morning pick me up.  

Rosa Passiflora
Sun-ripened passionfruit, raspberry jam and a scattering of rain-soaked roses. Fragrance blend

I couldn't resist. Fruity rose blends are a favorite and this one is so yummy because it smells just like the Starbucks Passion Tea (iced, venti with extra sweetener, thank you). The passionfruit is sweet and smooth without the sharp green bitterness that I usually get from that scent with just the softest touch of florals in the distance. This was only offered as a whipped soap, but I believe Tiggy said it would return in other products. I will be waiting patiently. 

These are the two bath truffles that I grabbed up as well. I love these things. They're huge and I only need a small piece to get lots of moisture and delicious fragrance that fills the bathroom. 

Custard Cream
A sweet sugar cream sandwiched between two crunchy sweet biscuits

Smells like an macaroon. Or is it macaron? The lumpy one is what I'm talking about. Sweet almond, cookies and coconut all mixed up into one yummy bakery scent. 

Oatmeal Milk & Honey
Warm oatmeal flavoured with creamy milk, honey and almond

A rich, comforting blend of sweet honey and soft milky nuances. It's a scent I've smelled many times before but it's a classic I keep coming back to.

That Rosa Passiflora is really something else. I don't think I've encountered a tropical, summery rose blend before but it's well done, unique and a welcome addition to my stash. Did you pick up anything from the summer restock?

  1. It has been way too long since I picked up goodies form Tiggy. I need to hop back on board. That rose scent sounds perfect. And here I am missing out on my Indian Temple Attar (which I ADORE) and The Warrior. I need to get my junk together, Kris. Thank you for the great review!
