I posted a sneak peek of enchanteds Halloween sampler yesterday and now the lovely Sarah has done the big reveal on her Facebook page I thought I’d do a quick update on the names and scent descriptions 😀
The theme for this Halloween collection is Disney villains and the scent choices are perfect 🙂
Hop on board the magic carpet and take a ride to Agrabah, just take care not to run into the Royal Vizir, things are not as they seem. This tall bony character is a cool headed schemer with evil at his heart. Jafar is often noted to be an amoral psychopath who’ll not hesitate to destroy anyone he perceives as a threat to his own sinister designs. His scent is full of Eastern influence, Arabian oudh nestles seamlessly against dragonsblood, honeyed woods and a hint of souk spices.
This is one of my favourite scents from this sampler and it will definitely be on my list come order day! It smells exactly the way you would expect jafar to smell. Dark, dirty and strangely sexy!
Or is it just me who finds animated characters sexy?….;)
Evil queen – body wash
Snow White’s villain is the embodiment of pride and vanity from her golden, jewel tipped crown through her black, purple and deep red attire to the tips of her yellow orange high heeled shoes. Dark damsons, red berries and pumpkin create a concoction to emulate her vain and prideful colouring, with a shot of shiny red macintosh apple to represent her attempt to rid the world of our heroine.
This is another scent I have on my list to order. I can smell the damsons and berries with maybe a hint of apple? Really nice fruity scent 🙂
Dark cloak- bodywash
warm vanilla swirling into a cloud of pink marshmallows and a hint of toffee and fig. (scent idea by Joanne D)
I definitely smell vanilla and marshmallow in this scent. Sarahs vanilla is lovely and warm so this will be a lovely scent for those winter nights 🙂
Queen of hearts – scrub
The tyrannical and deranged ruler of Wonderland, she is renowned for being psychotic and has huge mood swings from being content to enraged within a matter of seconds. Unbirthday cake, vanilla cream and red raspberry & strawberry sauce
I wasn’t sure about this scent when I first gave it a sniff and now I know why! Birthday cake (Or unbirthday cake) is a scent I’m really not a fan of…This is one that’s definitetly not going on my list 😀
Lady of autumn -scrub
honey, milk, sandalwood and rose petals (scent idea by Nikki S)
This one I knew contained rose as soon as I opened. I’m allergic and the scent gives me a headache 😦 I love the colours of this one but sadly won’t be able to use it.
Underworld – scrub
Welcome to the realm of Hades and his sidekicks Pain & Panic. Hades, the whispy fiery headed villain from Hercules is the god of the Underworld, along with the help and sometimes hindrance of his very naughty minions Pain and Panic he schemes to take over the throne of Olympus. A colourful concoction of whispy blue candy floss, silly lime and crazy blue raspberry slushie.
I love this one 🙂 I didn’t have the scent descriptions yesterday but can definitely smell all the notes now I know what they are. Blue raspberry slush ie is one of my favourite scents and this blend works really well. Another for my list 😀
De vil – scrub
With her fur coat and bright red lipstick she is easily recognisable as the puppy stealing villainess that we all love to hate. Another of Disney’s iconic villains she was styled on Bette Davis, Rosalind Rusell and 1940’s glamour. Opera gloves, high heels and skin tight dresses are her usual attire, along with lashing of teal eyeshadow and bright red lipstick. This sexy floral is tribute to the red lippie of the 40s and the stylings of this puppy pinching diva. Night blooming jasmine, sandalwood and musk make this so sexy in a floral, but not too floral kind of way.
I hate floral but this is gorgeous! I’d actually day this is my favourite from the whole sampler. It’s a really clean and pretty scent. I’m really looking forward to ordering this in MU spray and whatever else is available 😀
Vampires first bite – mu spray
blood orange, red berries and crushed pomegranate (scent idea by Rachel F)
This is really fruity and I get a clean background scent. Really nice and refreshing 🙂
Treat or treat – mu spray
All the sweet foodyness you could wish for: Halloween candy corn, sweet waffles, sugar cookies, gooey caramel and a huge dollop of vanilla ice cream.
I’m not a massive foody lover but this isn’t bad! I can smell the sugar cookies, waffles and vanilla but only get a hint of caramel 🙂 usually I find caramel scents bitter and overwhelming but this is a really nice blend and the scent complement each other beautifully 🙂
Mistress of evil – mu spray
Magnificent Malificent, often referred to as the leader of the Disney Villains, her most famous quotes is “You poor simple fools, thinking you could defeat me. Me, the mistress of all evil.” With her gothic pre renaissance styling she is slender, beautiful and extremely powerful with the ability to fly, shape shift, teleport, cast spells and is considered to be the embodiment of evil….she is one diva to be reckoned with. Her scent is as memorable as her image deep ruby Cabernet, red berries, dark woods and Iso E Super to add a little extra magic.
I can definitely smell cabernet and berries! This is quite a complex scent and is probably the one scent that will work really well as a perfume 🙂
So that was my sampler. If you want to get your hands on any of these products be sure to check out the enchanted Facebook group for details 😀 I’m really looking forward to getting my order in for the sets which will be available from the 20th-30th sept
Before I go there is just one more scent I’d like to mention…It wasn’t in my sampler and I haven’t yet sniffed it BUT when I read about it on the group this afternoon it definitely deserves a mention..
Genie– Remembering Robin: Obviously not a villain, the Genie from Disney’s Aladdin was voiced by the much loved Robin Williams. As you will all know Robin Williams passed away earlier this year following a long battle with depression. He was a much loved and extremely talented man who gave much joy and happiness to countless people. I wanted to do something to recognise and remember Robin Williams and with this year’s theme being Disney related I thought it would be a fitting time to release a limited edition scent in remembrance of this much missed man. Fruity blueberry and marshmallow combine to create a wonderful blueberry smoothie scent. If this scent is ordered as part of a Halloween set, £1 for every item in the scent will go to the chosen charity for depression or suicide prevention. There will also be a Genie set available from which 100% of the profits will go to the charity.
I loved the man and like most of you grew up watching him make the world laugh. This is a really fitting tribute and I definetly think it deserved a mention. I’ll be ordering mine 😀
