I have always been the type of person who marches to the beat of her own drum (and yes I own my own djembe!). And it goes without saying that it also includes the fragrances I wear. I am not the type that goes out and buys all those top of the line expensive perfumes that are mass marketed because it is the popular thing to do. I would rather find my own small brand that has scents that I can truly appreciate.
I used to buy perfumes from a local woman who would make them and sell them at local craft show. However, I haven’t seen her at them in awhile. So I have been running low.
Thankfully, I came across Auric Blends and was given the opportunity to test them out and do a review. I am completely in LOVE with their scents. I received 4 roll-ons and 1 perfume solid. Each one was a different scent. I know that there are only 3 roll-ons shown in the picture. That is because my favorite is downstairs in my purse.
One of the great things is that none of the scents are overpowering, but they do stay with you.
The scents I received are Chinese Rain, White Magnolia, Egyptian Goddess, Love, and Desert Night. Chinese Rain is simply my favorite. It has such a clean, refreshing smell. This reminds me of something funny. When my sister, Debbie, and I were smelling these for the first time, Debbie’s husband Steve walked into the room. So of course, he had to get in on smelling them since he didn’t want to be left out. When I said that Chinese Rain smelled clean, Steve looked confused and said “I guess it could smell like a cleaning product.” LOL! He had no clue what I meant by it having a clean scent. Guys are too funny when it comes to things like that.
My sister Brenda is already making attempts to steal the Egyptian Goddess from me since that is her favorite.
The little pot that the white magnolia comes in is really lovely. It has a lot of detail work on it. I know that I will keep it around long after the perfume has been used just because of its beauty.
In conjunction with the Wakela’s World Disclosure Statement, I received a product in order to enable my review. No other compensation has been received. My statements are an honest account of my experience with the brand. The opinions stated here are mine alone.
