Scent Description and Notes: “Sweet pea, cherry blossoms, and sugared cream.“ -BPAL
Oil Color: A bright Easter yellow.
Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard vial / imp size (1/32 oz). This is a decant from Absinthetics. On the back, she has the notes of the scent, the title of the scent in orange, the company acronym in bold, and her decanting information in green. The front of the label has the same image that appeared on the bottle’s label, which is a shunga print of exactly what the scent name suggests.
- ITI: I get a really lovely sugared cream with the subtle, innocent floral of sweet pea and the ephemeral tone of cherry blossoms. Oh, this is really lovely.
- Wet: The sugared cream is a bit stronger on my skin, and it smells like there may be some cocoa butter in here as well. Once it starts to settle, I get 17 Sakura Lane (Lush)’s cherry blossom note plus a faint hint of sweet pea. Well, if I were looking for a toned down and creamier version of Lush’s long discontinued soap, this would be it.
- Dry: The sugar has diminished some, but I’m left with a gorgeous cream note along with cherry blossoms and the faintest trace of sweet pea. This is a beautiful spring time, feminine scent.
Other Impressions: None.
