Haul: Lunableu (Again, yes!!!)

What would a gentleman do when he got a happy ending in a whorehouse? 
Coming back for more.

Yes I am that gentleman and my whorehouse is Lunableu. I simply adored The Raven (which would be the whore in this case LOL) scent from my last haul, I came back for more. This time I took a plunge and ordered their Ice Fairy Princess Holiday Box by the end of November, received it sometime during Christmas. I went to NYC and came back during New Years so I didn't know exactly when it arrived. They had a long TAT (3-4 weeks) back then because of holidays so I didn't expect it otherwise.
aren't the tarts purdy? hehe
Anyway the deal was I got to choose 5 items from the list they gave (it's on the link above) for $19.99. I mean, it's 4 bucks for each item and it's a pretty darn good deal so I couldn't pass it up. What I chose are: .
  1. 1 oz Marshmallow Body Frosting (Scent: The Raven)  
  2. Edp Roll-On (Scent: The Raven) 
  3. 8 ml EDP Fragrance Mister (Scent: Pink Fairy Dust) 
  4. 2 oz Body Mist (Scent: Blackberry Musk Noel) 
  5. Cupcake Cuties Wax Tarts (Scent: State Fair Treats, Candy Punk, Shadow Witch, White Musk) 

Being a generous person she is, Tanya included freebies in my order and I got:
  • 8 ml Edp Fragrance Mister (Scent: Creamy Candy) 
  • 2 oz Shea Butter Body Frosting (Scent: The Raven) 
  • Scent Shots Wax Melt (Scent: Shadow Witch & Little Black Dress)
  • 2 oz Goatsmilk & Honey Cream (Scent: Let Them Eat Cake!)
Scent Review:
1. The Raven: Vanilla Madagascar, Rice Flower & Shea with Sweet- Tart Blackberries and Marshmallows
~ My crack. Re-order because it is simply one of the best e-tailer scent I have come across.

2. Pink Fairy Dust:  Exclusive new blend of Pink Sugar, Madagascar Vanilla, Warm Vanilla Sugar, and a little something special
~ Also re-order, the most sophisticated PS blend I've had tried so far :) It smells expensive, if ykwim.

3. State Fair Treats: A blend of all your favorite State Fair Treats Freshly-Spun Pink Cotton Candy,Yummmy Funnel Cake with Powdered Sugar, and Delicious Candied Red Apples.
~ Cold sniff is very apple-y but then it blends beautifully with other sugary sweet notes, definitely can smell Cotton Candy somewhere there.

4. Candy Punk 
I honestly forgot what's in here exactly (it's a LE) but it's very bubblegum-y yet fresh at the same time ... yeah I know it's weird but I REALLY LIKE IT !

5. Shadow Witch: Vanilla Madagascar, Rice Flowers & Shea touched with Parma Violets & hints of blackberry
~ I ordered this because it's like a floral sister of The Raven, but I don't think I like it all that much. The violets does make a bold appearance and I find it sorta heady.

6. White Musk: Simply THE perfect “musk” scent! Trust us, this is unlike any other “white musk” on the market! Indulge your senses ~ you will fall in love with the simplicity of this beautiful fragrance!
~ It's just sooooooo pretty, can't wait to burn it on spring days :)

7. Blackberry Musk Noel: Our wonderful blackberry musk blended with vanilla bean noel, this one smells so wonderful!
I like it but I don't love it, I just realized VBN is a strong scent (same goes with PS, I guess) in blends and it just overpowers everything which is funny because VBN alone I would consider it "creamy" & "soft" lol idk

8. Little Black Dress: Bottom notes of White Carnation and blood orange are the perfect foil for the heart notes, comprised of sandalwood, black rose, smoky wood, and a kiss of patchouli. The top notes give a hint of toasted vanilla bean and whiffs of vetiver, amber, and the tiniest touch of Egyptian musk for a smoky, sexy finish.
~ Just like any other e-tailer's dupe, very complex & sophisticated...I love it.

9. Let Them Eat Cake!: A Rich Buttercream Frosted Cake!
~ Hmmmmmmmm... ok I feel bad for not liking this because it's a cult favorite but I know myself and I've never liked straight up buttercream frosting scents. Nothing wrong with the scent, it's just me. 

Product Review:
All Edp, Body Mist & Roll On are strongly scented and they last a long time. Tarts are REALLY strong too, I even needed to break them in two because it's too overwhelming. Since I get to try all different kinds of creams, I can say that the Marshmallow Body Frosting has the thickest consistency, it's also spongy and very rich...I adore it, it sinks in so fast too. Goatsmilk & Honey cream is the lightest one. I'll show you with pictures:

Marshmallow Body Frosting
why does it have to look like Vanilla ice cream? T_T omnomnom

Shea Butter Body Frosting

Goatsmilk & Honey Cream
Now if you'd excuse me, I have a lot of goodies to indulge. 
Too many creams, too little skins lol

Marshmallow Body Frosting - I just received my order, and I just love the Marshmallow Body Frosting!!! I ordered it in Let Them Eat Cake!, and I swear it looks exactly like Marshmallow frosting! I could put it on a cake and just eat it up :0). YUM.
Let Them Eat Cake! is by far my favorite scent right now....although I really like Birthday Cake and Toasted Marshmallow, too. I placed an order for this in Marshmallow Sugar Fluff, and I can't wait to get it! I highly recommend this Marshmallow Body Frosting :0)
