Garden Botanika gives Spring a delightful welcome with the launch of their four new custom blended eau de parfum sprays--Pink Peppercorn, Pink Plumeria, Gimme Some Sugar, and Charmed.  Each one sent to me for this review and giveaway is uniquely stunning and brings a world of captivating fresh beauty that can only brighten your mood just as the return of nature's blooms and green!  In fact, I can't wait to tell you about them because they are truly special and deserve your attention.

If you're particularly passionate about yummy smelling gourmand fragrances, then you need to sample Gimme Some Sugar first.  This is sinfully loaded with sweet vanilla and creamy coconuts with swirls of rich caramel to pleasantly tease.  The artful combination lends a comforting touch to that luscious decadence.  As this eau de parfum dries down in the base and warms further with notes of musk and amber, the wearer becomes even more irresistible.  Softly seductive, this fragrance turns you into a tempting treat meant to be exquisitely savored.

Charmed comes from a completely different fragrance family.  This is a gorgeous fruity-floral that has a gentle serene quality and elegance about it.  Juicy grapefruit and red fruits open this scent as it prepares for the entrance of the star.  Those floral notes of the heart with muguet, white jasmine, and lily shine, moving with talent through this scent like a graceful prima ballerina.  With notes of musk, amber, and cedar, this eau de parfum ends with a warm and sophisticated finish.  Think of the base as when that ballerina takes her bows with the appreciative applause for her superb performance.

The boldest and most sensual of the group is Pink Peppercorn.  This is an uninhibited spicy, but earthy fragrance that dares with its sultry opening green notes.  The fragrance flirts with a confidence that keeps you guessing.  Once the pepper accord mixes with the amber and woods as it dries down, this fragrance mellows exquisitely rooting itself with romance and feminine appeal. 
Last of all, there is one I covet even more with Garden Botanika's Pink Plumeria Eau de Parfum Spray.  Though it is classified as a fruity-floral, this is bursting with tropical floral and green that compliment the Plumeria blossoms perfectly.  Instant pleasure hits you upon experiencing this happy fragrance that greets with a lei of Plumeria flowers like a warm Hawaiian welcome.  As the sun goes down in this tropical paradise in the base, you experience a calm, romantic beauty from the white musk accord.

Whether your preference is gourmand, fruity, earthy, or floral, you will love these four new Garden Botanika custom scents for yourself or to gift your mother or wife with this Mother's Day.  The 3.38 fl. oz. eau de parfum spray retails for $32.  However, the company has a sweet price reduction on Pink Peppercorn, Pink Plumeria, Gimme Some Sugar, and Charmed Eau de Parfum Sprays for just $20 now until May 31, 2013.  Do plunk down for a bottle or several because these are beautiful fragrance bargains!
