Rosegirls July Preorder

Disclaimer - all products were purchased by me

The third and final Rosegirls haul post for the month, these are the scents I picked up in the preorder back in mid-July. I went with mostly fall scents this time around because...fall scents. Even though it's been triple digits here in Southern California with no end in sight, I can't wait to get melting and pretend that it's fall outside. 

Chunk bags are $10.50 each and weigh 8 ounces each. Scents from left to right are Pumpkin Pecan Waffle Sugar Cookie Dough Gilligan's Brew, Circus Concession, Light as a Feather and Cider Lane Pumpkin Cheesecake Vanilla Ice Cream.

Cider Lane / Pumpkin Cheesecake / Vanilla Ice Cream

Cider Lane is what mainly stands out and warmed by a thick, lightly spiced pumpkin. It's pretty good, but I do hope the pumpkin and vanilla will come out more in the warmer. 

Circus Concession
Macintosh Madness, cotton candy frosting, ooey gooey caramel and funnel cake

This smells just like a caramel apple with a touch of warm bakery to temper the sweetness. Lots of caramel and crisp red apple with just enough funnel cake to add a cozy feel.

Light as a Feather, Stiff as a Board
Leaves, amber, vanilla, sandalwood and gooey toasted marshmallows

Smoky, woodsy and a heavy hand of deep, seductive amber. It's along the same lines as Wisconsin Woods down below except this one is more of a cologne type blend while Wisconsin is a more realistic woodsy blend. I prefer Wisconsin a little more but both are nice and will get a lot of use in the coming months.

Pumpkin Pecan Waffles / Sugar Cookie Dough / Gilligan's Brew

A buttery, golden blend of sweet cookies and cozy waffles with a creamy background from the coconut in Gilligan's Brew. It doesn't actually smell like coconut but just adds additional smoothness. Cookie is mostly what I smell followed closely by the waffle.

Chunk muffins are $7 for a set of two that weigh between 5.2 - 5.7 ounces. From left to right are Cucumber Limeade, Sarah's Blend and Wisconsin Woods.

Sarah's Blend
Blackberry jam, coffee and hot fudge brownie

Dark, roasted coffee beans and an ultra creamy brownie batter swirling with sweet blackberry. It's mostly a coffee and chocolate blend with the berry adding an incredibly unique twist. I keep coming back to sniff this and didn't even think I would like it much when I ordered it.

Cucumber Limeade
Crisp, fruity and refreshing

More of a cucumber blend, mellow, green and smooth, with just a pinch of zesty lime freshness. 

Wisconsin Woods
Earthy woody blend that smells like home

A complex blend that is absolute perfection! It's chilly from the pine needles, woodsy like tree bark and pine cones and smoky from a smoldering campfire nearby. Smoky, woody and cold in that order.

Cider Delight

A free mini melter sampler that was generously included, this is a B&BW Cider Lane dupe that mostly smells of warm and cozy apple cider, no spices, but there's an added bakery note underneath of funnel cake or muffins.

Great stuff! Favorites are Wisconsin Woods, Sarah's Blend and the PPW-Gilligan blend.

The next preorder opening takes place on Friday and the scent list has already been posted. Are you planning on making an order? There are two muffin scents I'm looking at but may sit it out. The $10 shipping for a $14 order is making me double guess things although realistically, I'll probably order. That pumpkin butterscotch blend is really calling out!
