Haus of Gloi Spring 2011 review
Lassi to my nose is mostly mango with a lime/green tea kick. I get very little ginger in the bubbling scrub (I bought a sample size of this scent only). It's well done; fresh and fruity, but as I suspected not my cup of tea (I don't tend to like very fruity/foody scents). I am glad I tried it though, and if you like fruity scents this is a good one.
Milkmaid is a very pretty, soft milky floral. It has a similar feel to Troika from the regular line-up, but with some added delicate floral loveliness. The notes are described as milk, clean linens, musk and sweet pea. If I didn't already have three full size pumpkin butters on the go (and another on the way) this would be full jar worthy, but as it is I'm glad to be able to at least try it in the sample size. A nice choice for those who like subtle scents; if you liked Something Hopeful from the Valentine's Collection, I'd recommend giving Milkmaid a sniff.
I haven't tried Ploughman yet as it wasn't in stock when I placed my initial order from Spring. I have since placed an order for a full size pumpkin butter and bubbling scrub in this scent because 'dandelion, dirt, leather, carrot, tobacco and musk' sounds like entirely my kind of scent. It's gotten good feedback on Twitter from a fellow Haus of Gloi fan I often chat to.
The Spring collection will be up at www.hausofgloi.com until mid-May.
