"OMG this is to die for. This may have jumped to my top perfume ever. I love heliotrope, and if you have never smelled it, you need to go to your nearest garden centre stat, as there are probably quite a few plants there right now. Beautiful, vanilla, with dried flowers and just a touch of creamy sandalwood to round things out. I can't wait to see what this one is like with a bit of time behind her. I ordered two bottles, and I don't think that it's going to be enough. Probably going to get two more on payday:). Just lovely.

My review from last year. Sylvia - the clean floral you all didn’t know you needed! I’m not sure what I was expecting but plumeria, sandalwood and allspice had me. In the bottle it is immediately a favorite smell. Bubblegummy floral?! On my skin... wowsers. 🤩 So fresh and so clean. I am smitten. Adding that the Patchouli is very light but really supports the whole. If anything, it is even better after a year of aging.

This takes me back to being eight years old at summer camp, sandwiched between the tennis courts and pool, waiting patiently at the concession stand to buy all the kids’ very favorites: blue slushees, DipStix, Italian Ice, and that blue ice cream with a gum ball at the bottom (name I can’t remember at the moment). It opens with a blast of blue slushee and DipStix (it smells the way the powder tastes but isn’t powdery at all) and features the vanilla DipStix (edible) wand. As it begins to dry, it starts to smell more like Italian Ice and that gum ball ice cream... wears long and innocently with a big puffball of blue surrounding you. I love the rest of my purchase, but this and Bourbon Vanille Rice Milk were my favorites from this release. Try layering Blue Bunny with BIC Original (or any BIC) to turn it into a creamy blue scent. This is AMAZING, and I would not hold off on purchasing this one :).
