Fizzy Pop + Shamrock Kiss/Pink Sugar

Surprise! I am actually back posting one day before I thought I would.  :)

I have tried all these scents on their own before but I will do a quick run down of them anyway. 

Shamrock Kiss is described as including candied apples, pomegranate, fresh ivy and oakmoss.  It is a fruity but fresh/clean scent.  I definitely smell the candied apples (red apples I think) and the green notes of the ivy and the muskiness of the oakmoss.  Love it!
 Fizzy Pop is a really cool scent.. lemon/lime soda with fizz and all!  The difference between it and Lemon Lime Fizz is that Fizzy Pop is a bit more fizzy and less sweet than Lemon Lime Fizz.  It is a great mix with just about anything!
Pink Sugar is an Aquolina dupe, which has notes of cotton candy, lemon drops, and raspberry jam, with a bit of musk.  This is a very sweet scent, but not as sweet as Pink Bubblegum Crush.  This is more perfume-like. (duh Shannon, it is a perfume dupe, ha) I mainly get cotton candy from it but it is a bit more complex than that, just can't pinpoint it.  Really like this on its own as well as in the many scents it is in!
Now for the CAS mixes:

Luck of the Irish - 
Ryan Marie came up with mixing Fizzy Pop and Shamrock Kiss and she named it Luck of the Irish.. just love that name! I could totally see a really cute bowl candle with lots of glitter, a rainbow and a pot of gold for this scent mix.  :)  This mix smells really good... I just love the fizziness added to the fruitiness of Shamrock Kiss. 
Pop Rocks -
This mix was created by Summer Hobbs and is the Pink Sugar/Fizzy Pop combo.  This was added to the regular line so you don't have to mix it now, but at the time I had ordered, it was not available as its own scent.  It is soooo freaking good.. I totally get the rave about it and why it was added to the line.  It is sweet and fizzy.... just like eating pop rocks! 

So, that is it for now folks!  Have a great night!

Elvis + Fudge Brownie/Zucchini Bread/Viva La Juicy

Alrighty, do have a long post for you!  It has been busy around here (it seems I keep saying that, lol) and I just haven't had a chance to get this post out.  So, let's just get straight to it, shall we? :)

I believe I have reviewed Elvis before but just in case, it is AMAZEBALLS!  This is a mix of Peanut Butter and Banana.  Neither one overwhelms the other and it is not a super peanut buttery scent.... just super yummy! 

Viva  La Juicy mixed with Elvis is pretty yummy.  I can't remember who made this one up (sorry about that!) The Viva La Juicy is a bit stronger than Elvis but Elvis gives it a bit of creaminess that is really nice. 

Fudge Brownie smells a bit like brownie batter ready to be put in the oven and a bit like brownies right out of the oven.  So rich and yummy!  Elvis and Fudge Brownie mixed together are MAGIC!  I can't even explain it... just so good you want to eat the air, I tell ya!

I was not a fan of Zucchini Bread cold (to me it had a almond note to it) and could not understand what everyone raved about but once this baby is warmed it lost that almond note completely and knocked my socks off!  It is super hard to describe... not overly spicy, not too sweet but definitely bakery. 

Adding Elvis to the mix gives it that creaminess and a bit of nuttiness.  It is a great mix and worth a try, especially if you don't like Zucchini Bread that much.  It changes the scent just enough to make it different. 

I was pleasantly surprised by all of these mixes and their counterparts.  :)  I should have another batch of scents up in the next few days, Wednesday for sure.

Viva La Juicy and DKNY Delicious

This is a pretty dead on dupe of the perfume.  It is a bit fruity and a bit floral.  I can't really pick out particular notes.  Maybe berries and jasmine?  I really liked this one on it's own.  :)

I reviewed DKNY Delicious in my last post so I won't go into detail, however it is not a favorite of mine. 

 Jandre came up with the mix and it is a great one! 
Mixed, the DKNY is toned down by the notes in Viva La Juicy and I really like them together.  :)
