Thank you so much to my pal, Boogie, for these AWESOME recommendations (over on my newbie needs mentor thread).
I had to share my very first ever B&B order from Haus of Gloi:

Pumpkin Butter - Imp
Body Emulsion - Litchi Milk Tea
Bubbling Scrub - Insalata Nocturna
Sugar Exfoliant - Odette
Handmade Soap - Honeysuckle Lemon Curd
and a sample of Lavender Sugar

Nice order, Laurie. Love Imp. How is the Honeysuckle Lemon Curd?
One of my favorite scents at Gloi is Apothecary. It smells like old books, wood, and lemon polish. (not for everyone, but I love it)

Looks good, Laurie ! I can't wait to hear your reviews. I got an edp sample of Lavender Sugar with my last TWO orders, even though I requested one of the new scents. It didn't make sense to me that they would not let you sample something new, especially something you have no intention of ordering until you sample it !

Thanks!
I think I am going to be in big trouble if my new found "hobby" turns into the full-blown addiction I have with wax.
I am going to hold these for awhile before I start using them (I have plenty from B&BW to work with right now), with the exception of the Honeysuckle Lemon Curd soap. I just couldn't wait, so I lathered up that little gem and I LOVE IT!

I agree with Boogie, I didn't smell a lot of floral, but the lemon wasn't overpowering, so I guess the honeysuckle toned it down, it's divine!
Great recommendations, keep em comin'!

I just tried the Imp pumpkin butter, and
:toppoints:
it's awesome!
Jules, I think Apothecary sounds great, and I also think I need some more of this pumpkin butter stuff.
just sayin'

Apothecary is one of those love it or hate it scents. I couldn't stand it, to be honest. If you decide to try it, get it in something you can wash off quickly, like the bubble scrub. seriously

I love some of their scents. My next scrub will be Snow Wolf after I finish up some Sugarcandie scrub. Another one I like is Picaroon and I know there are more but my brain cell is not working this morning. Enjoy your goodies Laurie.
