Demeter Fragrances

I’ve been dying to purchase from Demeter since forever!

I posted about Demeter in my previous post (dis). I couldn’t decide on what to get… so I went crazy… and purchased x35 different scents (at $3.40 each) making my order total $119. To be fair, I got them in the sampler size, thinking they’d be the size of actual samples that you typically get as a freebie. I didn’t know they’d be this big lol

Some of these scents had very, very long descriptions. Instead of copy-pasting the entire thing, I decided to just add a “short” description from the site and link each scent to the description page (just click on the title of any scent) and add my first impressions directly underneath.

I tried to group the scents into drink scents, food-y scents, herbal-y scents and abstract scents, but gave up towards the end lol Also, I found a ton of dupes!

Bath and Body Works Wallflower Refills Haul (Buy 3 Get 3 Free)

Bath & Body Works had this Buy 3 Get 3 Free deal going on. So, I decided to pick up a few more things and take advantage of that deal.

Supposedly, you could mix and match, but when I added a few Wallflower Fragrance Refills, it wouldn’t let me combine them with Hand Soaps and kept giving me an error message.

When I tried to add 3-wick Candles to the mix, it showed me that I was going to have to pay full price for all the 3-wick Candles and get the much cheaper Wallflower Fragrance Refills for free.

Basically, my best option was to place 2 separate orders; one for Wallflower Fragrance Refills and another for 3-wick Candles.

Man, I wish they’d fix their website already, to where it would be slightly more intuitive.

Wallflower Fragrance Refills retail for KD 2/250 each

Aside from a few experimental ones, I mostly went with sweeter scents.

I picked up x12 Wallflower Fragrance Refills and payed for x6 while the other x6 ended up being free (due to the Buy 3 Get 3 Free promo). The total for this order was KD 11/250 (with free shipping). I placed my order on December 5 and everything arrived safely the next day, except…

Bath and Body Works Flash Sale Hand Soap

Crisp Morning Air Deep Cleansing Hand Soap (Fall 2019)
Marshmallow Flurries Creamy Luxe Hand Soap (Holiday 2018)
Vanilla Bean Noel Creamy Luxe Hand Soap (Holiday 2018)
Vanilla Bean Noel Gentle Foaming Hand Soap (Holiday 2018)
Moonlight Orchid Gentle Foaming Hand Soap (Fall 2019)
Aromatherapy Sleep (Lavender + Vanilla) Gentle Foaming Hand Soap (2017 release)

These are the Hand Soaps I ended up purchasing during the Flash Sale (here). I got x1 of my beloved Deep Cleansing ones and x2 of those oh-so-pretty iridescent Creamy Luxe ones and x3 Gentle Foaming ones.

All of them were purchased online and therefore unsniffed. However, Vanilla Bean Noel is a constant repurchase (I stock up every year, more or less), so I already knew what I was getting with that scent.

Half the scents I picked up this time, included a lavender note, because I was influenced by Guerlain Mon Guerlain Eau de Parfum (hauled here) and was hoping I’d stumble on something that smelled similar. I dunno’… I just wanted to branch out a little from my usual scents.
