Lavender Buttercream is a perfect buttercream scent with a light bit of lavender that starts off strong at first but fades away lovely. The buttercream lingers and isn’t too sweet. I bet people will love this as a sleep scent! 😊

I get a ton of lavender from this at first, and it is glorious. At first, I thought it has the lavender found in Lilith's hair gloss backed by a somewhat lotion-y buttercream note (not sure if it is the buttercream note itself or the combo with lavender that's giving me that vibe). Slathered as a sleep scent, I realize it is a more powdery lavender with a slight mentholic quality to it. The buttercream here is definitely not as sweet as Chocolate Buttercream from this year's Lupercalia update, although it does get sweeter with wear and I think it may have a bit of coconut mixed in with the vanilla.

 

This will make a wonderful sleep scent, and I'm glad I grabbed two bottles. Just don't expect it to be sweet like past Lavender gourmand Liliths.

Doing the "alphabet" this month; fell behind a few days, but today L is for this lovely scent!  So glad I got it.  It pretty much is what it says on the label.  In the bottle:  Strong, herbaceous lavender.  On, wet:  The lavender gets hot on the skin, fast, and then starts to calm down.  After a bit of a drydown, the buttercream steps up.  Drydown:  The herbaceousness of the lavender calms down to more of a culinary lavender, and the buttercream finally takes its place alongside its partner here.  My only complaint is that I wished it had more throw and wear length.  I really like this and wish it was a GC because it's so beautiful in its simplicity.  If my local bakery had cupcakes that smelled like this I would be tempted to get one every day!

This is sooo interesting; what a combo! Very "aromatherapy" lavender you'd smell in maybe a sleep essential oil blend. In the bottle that's all I get, but the moment it hits my skin there's a softly sweet buttercream billowing from the bottom. It never turns into cake or pastry for me- it's sort of indescribable (sorry not helpful) but something I need to sniff again and again again... the sort of astringency of the lavender and thickness of the buttercream mellow eachother out into a scent that is both playful and soothing. Lowkey fun all around.

This is very lavender! It's like a fluffy cloud of lavender resting on a little cushion of sweet vanilla buttercream. I think this lavender is less herbaceous and more floral compared to others I've tried, but maybe that's due to the buttercream's sweetness. There's a dimension to it that reminds me of the sort of jammy quality that violet can sometimes have.

 

I did a side by side comparison with Two Frames and this is much heavier on the lavender. Two Frames is sweeter and more frosting-forward. I was expecting the same deep, buttery richness of Two Frames' frosting note, but that dimension is absent in Lavender Buttercream. After spending some time smelling both, I think Lavender Buttercream actually leans closer to TKO. It's like a sweeter, jammier TKO.

 

I like this! It's very pretty and fluffy, good as a soothing scent or a sleep scent.

Lavender Buttercream smells so much like TKO on my skin.  Same deep purple, slightly herbal, loud, aromatherapy lavender coated in sweet, kinda powdery vanilla notes.  I feel like it dries down to more of a sugared vanilla faster than TKO does, and this goes slightly more powdery on me, but they're still very similar on my skin.

Just a perfect sleep blend for the sweetest of dreams. Sugared, creamy lavender. Actually not buttery. But so sweet and calming. I want this piped through the air vents into my surroundings 24/7 honestly.
