Twyla Perfumes Spring Collection - Literary Ingenues
I have been meaning to get around to this review of Twyla Perfumes Spring Collection for ages because these perfumes actually come down on May 1, but fear not, perfumicans! If you are international (outside the US) and buy samples from Twyla for a limited edition, you can order a full bottle up to a month after it has come down (I think that is what it is - ask her directly if you're interested, she's very approachable). Anyway, this and Solstice Scents are the only Spring collections I bothered checking out this year (I only just got my Solstice Scents ones and there are 8 of them so I'll do a run down in a few days - they are usually around for a fair while). I'm not going to say much of anything about them because I've reviewed them all on my other blog, so I'll just link and you can clickety-click if you care to.
The theme is Literary Ingenues, and they are all named for famous girls in literature. Prices range from $16.50US to $17.50US for a 6ml dropper bottle, and all are available in samples.
Clara- loved it, though it was weirdly liquoricy on me and it doesn't seem as though it was meant to be. My review is here.
Lyra - loved it, woody floral musk with a dash of spice from pink pepper. My review is here.
Alice Liddell - went very soapy on me (sad face) and there is a honey note that dominated - not a big fan of honey. My review is here.
Lucy - a sweet mossy scent but again there is honey in it that thinks it's party time on my skin. I think a lot of people would like this, but it's not my thing. My review is here.
