  1. This review is on their Pumpkin Butter…this scent is most definitely lemongrass dominant and it is strong. I like to wear this PB with berry or rose perfume oils as this calms those notes (especially rose, I amp rose) right the eff down on my skin. I wish I got more basil and cedar out of this. I get a hint of the lavender and the rosemary here and there but for the most part this is just a beautiful lemongrass smell that I’ve been slathering myself in in the summer months. From my experience, Haus of Gloi’s PB’s are pretty much spot on to their fragrance oils and this is no exception.

  2. Got a pumpkin butter of this! It’s beaaaaaaautifully lemony, reminding me very much of Lush’s Sea Vegetable soap. I really appreciate that, as I’ve often stood in my shower saying to myself, “You know… I wish this lasted on my skin.”

    Lemongrass is the dominant note here, in this form.

    1. EDIT to add: Not only does this give me Sea Vegetable vibes, it also smells SO MUCH like Stash’s lemon ginger tea. There’s no ginger in this, but I can imagine the bite of it. Somehow, it still smells spot on. I love this.

  3. Immediately very astringent and clean – I definitely smell the lemongrass and rosemary. It tones down a lot as it dries, and the cedar comes out a bit. It still smells very clean to me, and the image of an apothecary seems fitting.

  4. In the bottle–sharp, spicy, warm, and something a little astringent
    First applied–SUPER SHARP/SPICY. Really strong notes of lemongrass, lavender, and cedar, with underlying notes of rosemary.
    As it dries, it calms down a ton, and what is left is lemongrass and cedar–it sort of smells like those cedar blocks your grandmother used in her dresser drawers, only if they were lemongrass scented cedar blocks. I went from hating it in the jar to loving it on me, though I’m slightly dissapointed that cedar, and not lemongrass, was the lasting dominant note.
