COMMENTS: Even though I didn't like every scent, all was not loss because there were way more amazing scents then not amazing scents. I wasn't a fan of the Rosemary Mint but I plan to experiment and see if I can mix it with some different scents and make it smell a little better. It works well with mp soap and the scents hold up really well. It really out does itself with body butters. My body butter smells way better then a body spray. I recommend everyone give this a try, when it's back in stock, of course. It does not disappoint.
I purchased this on April 2nd. When I received the fragrances, I was extremely disappointed and contacted Customer Service to return. I could not, so I took some time to test and allow others to give their opinions.
Since we all smell differently, I had friends over and asked them to review the scents. I wanted to give this set a real review of several people's opinions. Below is the consensus:
Acai Berries: Nice in the bottle. Disappointed in soap.
Hello Sugar. LOVED IT. I'd use it again.
Revitalizing Rosemary Mint and Eucalyptus and Spearmint. Will use only if requested.
Lemongrass Verbena. People prefer the Verbena FO I already have, so won't use it.
Relaxing Fragrance Oil. Made myself one bar. I don't reach for it much. Won't use it.
Raspberry Lemonade. I don't like it, however I sold a few bars. People say its a nice summer scent.
Sun and Sand. Does not remind anyone of sun nor sand, nor the beach in any way. And we live near the beach. Won't use it.
Sugar Leaf & Bamboo Sugar Cane & Sands of Morocco. Won't use them.
Sexy Sandalwood reminds me of a men's scent. I think I just need to mix it with something else, though.
Orange Clove. No hint of orange. It was all clove. Wont use it.
I will only use 1 or 2 out of 12 scents. One star is all I can give it. And I cannot honestly recommend it. I would have preferred to use my money for specific scents I wanted to purchase and have since done that. I've spent a lot on FO's and cannot use many.
WSP, I would appreciate your recommendations of mixing scents with some I already have as not to just dispose of these. I cannot believe these are "Favorites".
This is an honest opinion of several testers. Sorry.
Thank you very much for your review! We are sorry that you were disappointed in these FO's and also surprised, as these are honestly among customer's favorites. If you read the reviews for each individual FO you will see an overwhelming response in favor of these. Other FOs that you may want to mix to create a custom blend will vary greatly from FO to FO and what you dislike about the oil and what you are trying to achieve, so we cannot make an honest recommendation without more details. If you would like further assistance with the specific FOs and what you would like to achieve then please contact our Customer Service Department by phone or email. We certainly appreciate you taking the time to test and review these samples and will pass along your experience.

"Variety of Scents"
COMMENTS: I bought this sampler kit because I wanted to try out a bunch of new fragrances for my bath bombs. Personally, there were not very many scents that I actually enjoyed. Acai Berries and Satin is by far my favorite scent in the whole collection. I made up some bath bombs, and dispersed them to friends and coworkers, and they actually enjoyed some of the ones I didn't like, so it really is all about personal preference. As far as actually using the fragrances, they are very easy to work with.
