Sweet Potion Perfumes – General Catalog Reviews

As a daughter site to Siberie Perfumes (quite literally), Sweet Potion Perfumes speaks more to the gourmand lovers and young (at heart).  The theme is adorable and the scents are girly and very uplifting.  Fun and playful!

There are no real names to the blends, just numbers, which makes it easier in my opinion to remember which one you love the most.

Sorry to bring this follow-up post so late!  I had company staying at my house and they are, unfortunately, extremely sensitive to scent and so out of respect I didn’t wear anything/review anything while they were here.

#1 – Bubble Gum, Sugared Berries, Banana Soufflé, Juicy Apples

In the bottle this reminds me strongly of Bazooka bubble gum!  It’s a powdery sweetness and very reminiscent of childhood.  On my skin I still get a very heavy bubble gum scent (maybe you put two in your mouth!) and a bit of those berries.  I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I’m enjoying the touch of sweet banana I get from this!

As it dries down I get more of the apple note complete with the skin.  A lot of sugar is coming out.  Gobs of sugar.  Loads and loads of sugar.  Did I mention sugar?  Because … ya know, there’s sugar in this.

Once completely dry this becomes quite a beautiful scent.  It’s sweet with a hint of something spicy, like cinnamon or nutmeg with an almost musky apple rounding it out.  It’s amazing how this went from super sugar gum to the end result of a sophisticated and only slightly gourmand scent.

The throw on this is slight and it tends to stay close to the skin.  The longevity was good at about 2-3hours.  After that all I get is a slightly pink sugar smell, which is still very pretty.

#2 – Marshmallow, Milk Chocolate, Cherry Cordial, Vanilla Bean

In the bottle I get a very light vanilla and chocolate scent.  On my skin however it becomes a super syrupy cherry scent – like the inside of a cherry cordial.  Really, I dislike the taste/smell of actual cherry cordials – and this is an extremely accurate representation of that.

I’m not getting much marshmallow.  This is almost too candy-like for me.  It’s really not my type of scent.

It drys to a boozy vanilla bean scent with just bare hints of cherry and chocolate.

#4 – Pumpkin Pie, Caramel, Gingerbread, Amber, and Vanilla Bean

Quickly sniffing the bottle this is pure pumpkin pie spices with an emphasis on nutmeg.  I love a good nutmeg.  On my skin I get a slight tingling sensation – nothing major, but I’m very confident about the exact spot the oil is sitting.  Might be from cinnamon, so those with sensitives be wary.

I’m getting a good throw from this right out of the gate with a sweet pie scent and something that reads as gingerbread crust to my nose.  On the drydown this also begins smelling a bit dry, perhaps from the amber adding a touch of powdery-ness to the overall blend.

In the end this becomes an almost edible pumpkin pie scent, though the dryness from the amber continues to make itself present.  This is also heavily spiced.

#5 – Jasmine, Gardenia, Pink Roses, Vanilla Bean, Baby Powder

In the bottle this is full on baby powder … backed by a bit of Jasmine.  Not bad, but as someone who only just recently put the baby powder away, it’s a smell you don’t soon forget.

On my skin I get even more baby powder.  This is a very pink and very floral blend, yet still lends itself to feeling soft.

The throw on this is slightly overwhelming, like I’m inhaling over scented baby powder.  May be for some people, but I’ve spilled enough baby powder in the last 6 years that I don’t feel the need to wear it any time soon.  But maybe there’s someone out there that would enjoy just this kind of scent!

#6 – Cotton Candy, Sugared Berries, Marshmallow, Vanilla Bean

First sniff in the bottle I’m greeted with a very, very boozy vanilla with a bit of squishy, sweet marshmallow.  On my skin it almost immediately becomes super soft and almost imperceptible.

Once it dries I still only get just a vague sense of sweetness from the application spot.  I ended up putting on a bit more to see if it helps – perhaps it’s one that likes to be slathered.

More definitely helped!  Now I’m getting red, red berries with a dollop of almost tooth-achingly sweet cotton candy.  The throw isn’t very large, and it never looses that candy-like sweetness.  It’s a very red berry candy scent.

#7 – Vanilla Cupcakes, Butter Cream Frosting, Lemon Zest, Sugar Sprinkles

In the bottle this smells almost exactly like a lemon sugar cake – something like blueberry lemon cake without the blueberries.  On my skin this seems to be almost a Lemon Cream single note – which isn’t bad for those that love lemon!

As this dries I get more of that vanilla cake scent with lemon and a touch of something almost creamy.  I don’t seem to really get a true butter cream scent, but more something in the background.

This has a decent throw and dries completely down to a sort of lemon cake/cookie cross.  It has a nice touch of sweetness without over doing it and it hints at something almost nutty in the background.
