Mail Call!

I received some awesome mail this weekend.

First is from Haus of Gloi.

I’d purchased some of their imp samples.

Moon Dog
Solar storms erupt: pure cracked coconut, dry sandalwood heated  with Indonesian nutmeg and a Singapore clove. This blend  contains Vanuatu sandalwood, which is sustainably grown and  harvested!

Depravity
A bewitching ladies boudoir! Pure corruption: clove, nutmeg lurk  amongst the sweetest offerings of coconut, on a bed of rich  golden amber, laden with a dusting of sandalwood and spilled  wine.

Honey Tree
Quite rich! Right from the bee hive honey, amplified by  seductive essence of resinous vanilla, darkened by a passing  waft of mild rare wood smoke.

Absinthe soap
Hauntingly herbal. Wormwood and anise swim in a creamy green sea  of lemon balm, green lemon, soft glowing mints, a hefty lump of  sugar and the tiniest drop of suggestive deep green moss.

I have to say, something about my body chemistry does NOT like honey scents. They always turn into baby powder or dish soap on me :( Honey Tree, which is an AWESOME sugar creme and smells exactly like honey with a bit of smoke in that form turns into a baby powdery smell on me. I haven’t gotten to try the other two scents yet.

Next is an order from High Voltage. I purchased some full sizes and samples.

Samples
Little Miss Perfect – a Light Airy Blue With Strong Yellow Highlights!
Heart Throb – Duo Chrome Deep Crimson Red With striking Aqua Green accents.
Just a Girl – Girly Pink With White/Silver Sparkles
High Voltage*- silvery steele blue

Full Size
Big Break – Salmon Pink With Yellow Accents
Born to Rock – Smoky Lilac Purple Duo Chrome with strong Aqua/Green Chrome effects
Radio Star – Duo Chrome Bright blue/Aqua with sparks of aqua green.
Bootleg* – complicated maroonish blackened purple

Skin Candy
High Fashion – an enticing scent of Wild Berries, Mandarins, Honeysuckle, Gardenia, Jasmine, Amber, with notes of Caramel, Vanilla, Sandalwood, Praline.

I like High Fashion. Dave says it’s an exceptionally nice floral scent.

And the third piece of mail is something super secret, so you’ll have to wait and see! I’ll give you a hint, it’s from Glamour Doll Eyes.

      I really need to order from Haus of Gloi. there stuff looks just amazing

    • Phyrra

      What captivates your interest? I definitely love their products :) Their Satyr scent is my favorite.

    • Jayne Dough

      I made an order yesterday based on your review. I did samples, hopefully I'll find something I can't do without!

    • Phyrra

      ooh! What did you order?

    • MagicMaid

      I've got a post going up tomorrow afternoon about Haus of Gloi, thank you very much lady! <3 Satyr is AMAZING, and I love Depraved….yum. I'm really curious about Absinthe and Moon Dog. Just saw a raving review about High Voltage, curious to see some of your looks with these!

    • Phyrra

      If you look under my 'makeup reviews' section on the right, you'll see my review of High Voltage. And if you click on the label there you can see some High Voltage looks :) I look forward to your Haus of Gloi Post :)

    • Ella Runciter

      Once you've had a chance to try the other Gloi scents, I'd love to hear what you think about them. I'm planning an order now.

    • Saila

      I'm still applying for the position as your official mail opener :) I want hauls, too! I know I have stuff coming but I'm not very patient as you know :) If your skin warps honey scents, mine warps floral scents. not rose, but Clinique's Happy turns into mosquito repellent on me :(

    • Jayne Dough

      I ordered Satyr, Absinthe, Imp, Picaroon and Troika in either the sample scrubs or vials depending on what was available. Hopefully one (or more) will smell great on me. I've already gotten a shipping notice, can't wait to get them!

    • SilhouetteScreams

      I never get tired of staring at the Haus of Gloi packaging :) so vintage and cute

    • Phyrra

      Great haul!

    • Phyrra

      Ok :) I think I've mentioned some in my Haus of Gloi review, but I need to try the other two. Of course, I LOVE LOVE LOVE Satyr.

    • Phyrra

      Hehe, that's ok, the impatience is cute :) Ouch, it's so odd what our body chemistry will do!

    • Phyrra

      Definitely!

      I have the same problem with honey scents – often they end up smelling like a drawer full of old stale makeup, if you know what I mean. There are a few from BPAL that work but it's almost always a gamble.

    • BLIX

      Honey turns into sweet powder on me. I only have 2 honey scents and don't wear them often as I'm not a huge fan of powdery notes. Baked goods smell the best on me so I try to stick with foody/bakery perfume. Plus my husband loves them the most so it works out. :-) I've never tried this brand but have found it a few times browsing etsy. May have to actually order something! I love comfort foody scents that make me want to fill my lungs with them. Just placed an order this morning with Cleanse Your Soul. :-D YUM!

    • Phyrra

      Which do you prefer from BPAL?

    • Phyrra

      I'm glad you ordered from Cleanse Your Soul! They make some of my favorite scents! Come Hither and Over the Moon, with Over the Moon being my absolute favorite from them. I also like Vanilla Orchids & Coconut, and Blueberry Coconut cake. What did you pick up?

    • BLIX

      I need to look those scents up. It's been over a year since I have ordered from them and I think that was too long of a wait. I got 12 roll-on perfumes and 3 perfume sprays in these scents: State Fair Delights (one of my favs of hers!), 'Ah, My Beloved', Pure of Heart, 7-up Poundcake (was curious about this one for a long time), Frosted Watermelon Cake, Sugared Shortbread, Tres Leches Cake, Viking Cake, Buttery Caramel, Caramel Popcorn, Chestnuts and Brown Sugar and Lime Cotton Candy Twinkies. The current turnaround time is 2-3 weeks so it will be a while before I can post a review on these scents. They have nut ingredients in almost everything else so I can't order any of her scrubs/lotions. :-( So I ordered scrubs/lotion/bath kabooms from http://www.skindecent.com I love Skindecent and it's cheap because it's based in Canada so the currency makes it a good deal. So it's easy to buy a bunch at one time. :-)

    • Phyrra

      Oooh I'll go check them out!
