Auric Blends Perfumes Sponsor Spotlight Review

I have to tell you about this great company that makes wonderful solid perfumes and roll on perfumes out of very unusual scents and that company is Auric Blends. Auric Blends has been kind enough to give the winner of the Valtentine's Day Giveaway their choice of (3) scents in either solid or roll on that starts on February 2nd! Here is what I got to review:

1. Black Coconut in Solid
2. Royal Amber in the Solid
3. Chinese Rain in Roll On
4. Water Goddess in Roll On
5. Love Roll On
6. Eyptian Goddess in Roll On

Now, before I go any further, I need to let you know that when we were unpacking the box, my husband lost control of the Love Roll On and of course we were doing it in the kitchen which has ceramic tile and the whole bottle broke into several pieces. I did try to get some of it up and wiped
a little on the clothes I was wearing and got a tiny amount in a little plastic cosmetic container.

So, I did get to smell it for a few minutes and I have to tell you of all the luck, that one was the one I loved the most! It had a light flirty like smell with an earthly tone that makes it not too loud and give me a headache. I can tell when a scent is going to be a problem when it gives me one and Love did not! Just my luck! I have maybe enough in that little plastic thing for one more application. I have been holding onto it for dear life.

My next favorite was the Eygptian Goddess. It also is a very light, natural, woodsy scent that does not overpower me and make me feel like I am in a perfume factory! The roll ons go on so smoothly and they are precise which is what I like. With a spray the scent goes where it wants whereas the roll ons and the solids also stay where you put them.

Did you know that there are over 39 fragrances to choose from at Auric Blends? I did not until I read it while doing this review. I like to keep the details fresh in my mind while writing so I pop back and forth from both. Eygptian Goddess was first introduced in 1993 and has been a favorite ever since because it is light and sexy while also being feminine. You will love this one.!

Now, the Water Goddess reminds me of a garden and water all put together, if that makes any sense. When I went to read the general description of the new blends (and this is one of them) they are made from Oriental and green blends!

I knew I was right! I try not to read about the scents until after I say something about them so that you get my real honest to goodness opinion. I love that I was able to nail this one, though. If you like Oriental notes, then this is the one for you!

If you thought that Water Goddess was Oriental, then you will have no trouble viewing Chinese Rain as an Oriental blend also. It is a little like Water Goddess but with more of a floral scent, something like maybe jasmine or honeysuckle. Of course, that is if you really like those two flower fragrances. I liked it sorta but I was very careful to only swiped it very lightly across the back of my hands. That made all the difference. You go heavy on this one and you might regret all that powerful stuff that you unleash!
I also got to try two solid perfumes but there are 14 different scents to choose from! Then they take these solids and put them in richly textured perfume carried in a base of beeswax and coconut oil. They took their most favorite roll ons and made the solids from them.

The Amber line is from fragrances that have been used for thousands of years. The scents are spicy, rich, warm and earthy, amber is a fragrance that is worn just like a perfume. You take a small amount and rub it between your fingers til it is warm and put it wherever you wish, just like you would a perfume.

I hope that this gives you a little help in choosing what fragrance best suits you. I really loved the solids and two of the roll ons. The Oriental Blends are not my cup of tea. I loved the Love and Eygptian Goddess because they are warm and earthy and a light scent. Like I said earlier, if you like Oriental blends then you really will love these. They are excellent in every way that the other two that I liked better. I am just not a flowery type of girl as far as perfumes.
