Plastic Pink Flamingo Summer Garden Series (6/6/09-9/6/09)
Posted 19 June 2010 - 03:40 AM
This starts out as sweet fruity-pink (berry candy) marshmallow scent, as pink as its namesake flamingo and with just the slightest plastic edge to the scent just at first.
As it dries down it turns into a fluffy pink candy scent, very fun and bright… and then it goes sour on my candy-hating skin. (I just can't seem to wear certain sorts of sweet candy scents; it clashes with my own skin scent or something.)
However, if you have chemistry that likes sugary and berry scents, this one will be all sorts of fun. It's a bright, berry-candy-marshmallow-poof of a scent.

On my skin it smells like Antique Lace plus grass, which I guess is the dandelion??
The bf says..."What smells like play-doh?"
It was me. :(

Wet, it seems more subtle on me. After the drydown it blooms and the sweetness really comes out. I need an endless supply of this! ^__^

then: aaah, there's something sharply, gooily sweet. it's almost like amoxicillin.
finally: a fluffy-soft marshmallow scent with the wonderful dandelion i love so much. it sits close to the skin, and is slightly creamy, slightly sweet, and slightly green. the vanilla is rather flat on me, as most are (:() but i actually do like this as a fun perfume.

Bottle: This is just.. what pink marshmallows smell like! Very fruity like a berry mix, but overly sweet and creamy. Think vanilla cream with pink sugar hearts in it. ;)
On skin: Given I can only rub the leftovers from the mouth of the bottle on my wrist, this smells utterly delicious! Very.. fruity but bordering on sunny-flowery. Creamy, light.. something between pink and yellow orange I guess (think dandelion and the flamingo). I know this is way too girly for me, but I just love it. And it does not go bad on me like the Lab's sugar notes do.. so maybe I am safe with their marshmallow blends? Yay if that were true! :D

In the bottle : Wowza! Sweet pink plastic. A little unsure....
Wet on skin : Ok, this is really living up to its name. It's sweet marshmallow, dandelion and sap all rounded out with a plastic tinge. Definitely pink! I like it but the plastic edge is a bit too much.
Dry down : Perfection. The plastic scent drifted away and what's left is sweet pink sugar and marshmallow. The dandelion and sap lend a greenery that is lovely but doesn't stick around for more than an hour or so. I love this.
Stays close to my skin and sticks around all day.
Also want to add that it reminds me of Velvet Unicorn. They share the same sugary scent that I love! :)

P.S. I've noticed that this oil can get a little plasticky if I apply it in certain areas of my skin. I've had the best luck in my neck and upper arms, on my wrist it got plasticky.

it's lovely pillowy marshmallows dipped in milk with a tiny bit of green stuff in the background to make it wearable. the pink sugar is what i get the least of. there's just a teensy hint of cherry or berry or something
it's just gorgeous :wub2: if you think you don't like candy smells or foodies, try this anyway. it's very different.
ETA: surprisingly, this also lasts and lasts and lasts...and lasts. it's also got a large throw radius, yet it's pretty subtle. it just kind of floats around you in a cloud of gentle milky loveliness.

In the Bottle: Candy! It's like a mix of cotton candy and marshmallow fluff! It's super-sweet but not terribly cloying. The very top of the inhale has a hint of grass. It's a shame I can't try this one on!

Pink marshmallows with a short-lived greenness from the dandelion and sap. I would have liked the dandelion to be more pronounced.
A cousin to Velvet Unicorn, but lighter and fresher. It also goes a little plasticky on my skin (VU doesn't). But hey, it lives up to its name! ;)

On: Within seconds of hitting my skin this blooms into... plastic. :( Something floral (probably dandelion) is waving in the background, trying to be seen, but the plastic is so strong I can hardly smell anything else.
20 minutes later: Somehow this morphed into a soft, sugary marshmallow scent, with the dandelion flitting around it. I have never, ever had a blend that's gone plastic turn back on me before, what a nice surprise! Unfortunately the throw is incredibly low - I have to have my nose within an inch of my hand to smell it. It's pretty enough but between the low throw and the plastic phase I just can't see myself reaching for this often. Swap pile!

it reminds me of strawberry moon v5, so a bit sweet with a hint of green, plus the cotton candy from wiley grasser. all in all, perfect for summer, sweet but not too much, green but not too green, pink but not too pink.
if you can't find this (I tried for over a year before I found a bottle) then try for a strawberry moon because they are similar.
