Garden Botanika Pre-Mixed Perfumes 

Heart happens to be Garden Botanika's best-selling perfume.  I must admit that the fragrance is quite exquisite, but I truly think the company's other pre-mixed perfume blends should not be overlooked such as three extraordinary ones I tested for this review and giveaway of Sweet Violet, Balance, and Joy to The Girl.

Sweet Violet is the most intense of the trio with violet, mimosa, and rose awakened to the freshness of the bergamot that cuts the sweetness of the romantic floral notes delightfully, giving this fragrance bouquet an irresistible allure and sense of sophistication until musk turns this hypnotic blend warm and sensual with undeniable appeal.  This stunning perfume has dimension and character as its layers unfold to captivate like a good book that you can't put down.

Elegant and very feminine, Joy to The Girl is light and a sparkling floral that comes alive with beautiful notes of orange, white jasmine, cherry blossom, and rose.  Think of a warm sunny day as you walk through a garden with a slight breeze stirring the surroundings with greens and woods.  This blend is pure romance in a bottle.  And the longer you linger, the more you feel the heat as you pick up the sexy warmth of the woods and musk merging together to give this fragrance its ever so romantic bewitching quality.

Graceful beauty is the first word that comes to mind when I think of Balance.  Of this threesome, this Eau de Parfum is the gentlest of floral scents as it whispers to you in a soft refined voice with orchid, jasmine, and magnolia from the delicate balance.  Amber vanilla is the warmth behind this romantic essence to make it truly memorable and utterly feminine.  

I had never expected such overwhelming beauty, but there it was in these three pre-mixed blends.  Honestly, I was very impressed and highly recommend these.  As you can probably guess, Sweet Violet stole my heart with its complexity and how it bloomed to life.  Yet, Joy to The Girl was just as glorious only in a different way that also left a lasting impression.  Nonetheless, the serene notes of Balance were also hauntingly lovely like a pleasant dream you want to recapture from how softly it touches you. 

I definitely will be trying more of these fabulous pre-mixed perfume blends!  If you're unsure as to what scent would suit you the best, I suggest test drive any of their pre-mixed perfumes in a 0.17 fl. trial size for only $3.50!
