Four Seasons: August's Sultry Summer

Some things are just too good to pass up. I saw a review of LemonLollipop.etsy.com somewhere online. They have several etsy sites to divide up the products they offer. One of these is FourSeasonsFragrance.etsy.com which offers scents based upon the 12 months and 4 seasons. Being the smarty pants they are, they offer a listing of samples for their 12 month scents. That's right, I just had to buy the set. So for the next year, I get to review one a month. Huzzah! Let's get this party started!

From the
website: August's SULTRY SUMMER scent description...this scent is the two of you. The good you and the not-so good you. The fresh rose of this fragrance is feminine and soft, yet the intense, sensual amber is irresistible and mouth-watering. This scent joins mandarin mixed with rose, bergamot, and peony which swirls into a rich blend of jasmine, orange blossom and geranium on a bed of patchouli, amber and musk. Smart. Sultry. Passionate.

Review: Oh man. I’m in trouble. This is a sweet sexy scent. Almost a little Girl-Next-Door. Not something that’s going to hit you over the head. An understated sexy. Yes, I think that’s it.

The rose and peony come out immediately and then the sweetness of the jasmine and orange start to chime in. Alea says it smells a little fruity, but in a good way. The amber and musk give it the backbone scents like this need (but many lack). I’m always worried a little about getting a headache with a new scent, but so far, nothing!

Keeper? If you ask very nicely I may let you try the sample. Mebbe. And only if you give it right back.

This isn’t going to grab someone from across the room (which can be a good thing), but I’m confident that when I walk past a certain someone will certainly notice. I’m confident this is a wise investment.

PS - the kind lady at Lemon Lollipop sends you a lovely gourmet lemon lollipop. It was delightful!
