Scent Description: red strawberries & fresh, salty ocean air
In the bottle I detect the strawberries and sea salty air equally. On the skin, the strawberries take the backseat to the salt note. It is a fun scent but my skin eats it up quickly.
Huh. Surprisingly, I don’t like this one. I figured simple strawberry plus the rave reviews of it and my love for Southern Hospitali-tea would make this a duh. But nope. I barely get strawberry from it, in fact. It’s mostly salt. Which I like as a fragrance note, but not when it’s alone. This needs way more going on for me. It’s like a salt perfume with just a ghost of fruit. So weird! I don’t have much else to say. I’m not sure if this makes me more curious or less curious about Slice of Life. Part of me thinks orange could be a better, stronger fruit match. Part of me worries I’m going to be just as salty (HA) about it as I am about this. Easy pass.
I had high hopes for this one with as much authenticity the fruit smell was in mossypeach but on me it did go artificial. The best way I can describe it was the way the old strawberry shortcake doll used to smell if you’re a child of the 80s. If you’re looking for that kind of nostalgia, then you’ll love this.
Salty and fruity (a bit candy like). It’s quite sweet and a bit artificial to me.
