SOTD- Firebird Bath and Body "Saltwater"

Hmmm, "Saltwater" probably doesn't sound too appealing. I guess the only reason that I wanted to try this perfume was that it intrigued me.

Description- "Marine notes, cedar and myrtle,that softens and mellows on the skin and becomes ethereal, almost haunting. Definitely unisex, definitely unusual and worth a try."

This perfume is more about being an experience, rather than just a fragrance. It certainly smells salty, aquatic and rich with the woody notes.

If you have wonderful memories of being at the beach, apply this oil, shut your eyes and you can almost hear those ocean waves.

  1. I've always wanted to try Firebird Bath & Body fragrances but I'm still overwhelmed trying to decide on which scents to pick in my sampler - I wish I could try them all!
    Saltwater intrigued me too, but then I remember washing down from a day at the beach and smelling salty mixed in with the not-so-pleasant seaweed/kelp.

    Do you have her other fragrances as well?

    1. I actually haven't purchased from this Etsy store, but was gifted this sample, plus Brown Sugar and Honey from a lovely blogger. Both nice, simple blends. Have fun choosing a sampler, maybe you need 2 ;)

  2. Ooh I remember this! I agree, it is a nice smell rather than a perfume but sounds good for layering. I haven't tried layering this one but currently loving Theirry Mugler's Womanity which is so fresh and slightly salty :)

  4. I'm 99% sure that Saltwater is a knockoff of Profumum Acqua di Sale - I have testers of both and they are almost identical except that Acqua di Sale is longer-lasting. This is not a complaint at all since the Profumum only comes in a $240 full size bottle and Saltwater is available for $10!

    1. Well, that's interesting! Can't say I have even heard of Profumum, but $240 for a bottle, eeek! Thanks for taking the time to comment, hun xx
