CJ Scents

I just can't seem to get enough of indie perfumes. I honestly don't even remember how I stumbled across CJ Scents, but an order was made and I received a lovely parcel of scented goodness.


The website is easy to navigate. I also like that there is a scent list, which made it so much easier when ordering samples :) There are different sized perfume and EDP bottles to choose from. Although, the EDP perfumes are not available to international customers, due to alcohol content.
Now to the perfumes I tried.


AMBER COFFEE: *Deep amber and black, smokey coffee.
This one is rich and syrupy. Smells like caramel and coffee. Simple, yet delectable. It lasts for some time, I seems to get subtle wafts throughout wear. This one is yummo!

PUMPKIN PATCH: *2 different patchoulis, one deep and one powdery, vanilla, sandalwood, spices and of course pumpkin.
I find this scent to be quite a masculine one. Rich, sweet, earthy and slightly spicy. Sexy and appealing on my guy.

BOOZYWOOD: * Sandalwood, Bourbon Vanilla, Frankincense, Myrrh.
This fragrance is deep, boozy, earthy. It is so smooth, and not too strong. I find it to be a unisex scent. Quite appealing perfume.This perfume sweetens over wear, just getting better and better.

CHERRY ALMOND: *Milk, almond, cherry, tonka.
Sweet syrupy cherries, with the creamy nuttiness of almonds. Tonka adds to the rich syrup nature of this fragrance. Simple, yet  lovely.

HONEYWOOD: *Milk, honey, spices, cedar.
This fragrance is so smooth, between the sweet, warm honey and creamy milk is the subtle woodiness of cedar and tiniest hint of spice to make this a scent that I love to wear. It is not at all heavy, but quite soft and comforting.

VANILLA AUTUMN: *Vanilla, spices, musk
Very sweet vanilla. This one bordered on being cloyingly so. On the skin, I detected a smoky note, however, there was no throw of this note, unfortunately.

GINGERBREAD AMBER: 
Lovely warm bakery spices when wet. This fragrance is very close to the skin with barely any throw. It's quite nice and subtle, though I would have liked it to not have been so close to the skin.

I found the perfumes that I tried were quite simple, which can be a nice change to complex scents. Boozywood and Honeywood are the favourites out of this purchase. I will place another order, as I want fullsizes of these 2, plus there's many more samples that I want to try ;)
