Wiggle Perfume: Buxom

From the website: This is a very full bodied perfume! If you don't like sweet creamy scents or strong florals then please run, don't walk away from this scent. If you do, prepare to be eveloped in the richest, most femininely decadent fragrance you've ever come across. This perfume is not for little girls, it's sensual and sumptuous and not the least bit shy about it. A blend of buttery rich bourbon vanilla and redolent English rose, this fragrance smells like a posh patisserie and florist smooshed together. I've grounded this fragrance with a lavish red musk, and embellished it with a flirty hint of powder. This oil will warm with your body heat, adding to the freshly-made-dessert effect. Be careful someone doesn't try to take a bite out of you (unless you're into that)! ;-)

Review: My sister isn't feeling well today so I let her pick from my magic perfume sample bag. She wanted me to try this one and I was happy to oblige. She swears she smells lavender in here.

This one goes on very very strong (if you have a headache please pick another time to wear it!). It mellows as it sits on the skin. The rich cream really starts to come out. The creamy, rich rose and musk remind me of my Great Aunt Annie Ruth, the sweetest southern lady you would ever have the honor of meeting. The bourbon vanilla helps deepen the rose and is a fantastic pairing. If you’re looking for a new twist on an old classic, this one is for you!

Keeper?
Even though this is a great one, it just isn’t for me - it’s a bit too powdery for my liking. Did you ever get into your grandmother’s expensive body cream or body powder as a child? This is exactly what that smells like - if she was having a sip of bourbon at the time.

Purchase?
Not for me, but maybe for someone else.

Awesome reviews~! Thanks for posting all of these.

Thanks so much for joining our community, and I look forward to reading more!

I've recently been very fond of Scents by the Sea; you seem to like a lot of the same qualities as I do in a scent, and SbtS are another fine etsy artist. :D

Thanks for having me! I've looked at Scents by the Sea a few times and am debating their sampler pack. Need to check with my bank account first. ;-)

This is my favorite perfume from Wiggle perfume. It's very feminine and beautiful. A sweet, powdery rose, which I don't find to be overpowering. It works perfectly with my natural scent. Although I am typically fickle with scents, I find myself wearing this scent often. I am not really a fan of rose or powder, but I adore this scent.

It's odd how scents work differently with body chemistry. Sometimes I get upset when I fall in love with a scent on another person and I put it on myself and it loses its magic.

Give the samples at the etsy shop 'Wiggle perfume' a go and see what you think. They're only a dollar!
