Haus of Gloi all summer long.....

Right now you could say I’m in absolute bliss; blogging whilst sitting on the porch in Tennessee, iced tea by my side and sniffing/testing the summer Haus of Gloi goodies. The only thing that would make this afternoon perfect would be a foot massage from Christian Bale but you can’t have everything!

I ordered from the Haus before I left the UK and had it delivered here so I can lug it back with me. I’ve never ordered HoG summer scents but I’m glad I took the plunge:

The Brier Path scrub & body butter – Now this scent is a total departure from what I’d usually go for as it’s more floral and musky rather than the foodie scents I normally purchase. My first impressions are that it’s something I’ll have to get used to as it smells a bit girly.

Beguiled scrub & body butter – This is more like it – lemon cake with buttermilk and raspberry entwined with cardamon and pink peppercorns. This smells like a posh cake that you find at a summer garden party.

Sanctum body butter – I can’t believe how gorgeous this is – melon mixed with kaffir lime and coconut water. It reminds me of the cucumber/melon scent that Bath & Body Works had when they first started out. I wish now I would have also bought the scrub but it wasn’t available on the website so I’ll have to live without it….

Elevenses scrub – This is not part of the summer range and can be bought all year round. I’ve got the perfume oil and decided I need the scrub too and now I’ve decided I need the body butter but that will have to wait till the Autumn. This smells heavily of tea, almonds and sugar which you wouldn’t think would make a great combination but it does.

Right back to sitting on the porch enjoying the sunshine and iced tea!

      Yes you do you but I understand your dilema you want it all but then you feel like you should hold back. It probably makes sense to see if your friends want anything too then the shipping would work out cheaper – that’s what I do! :D
