Review: Jelly Belly Collection by Demeter, Part II

After I introduced you guys to the Jelly Belly Collection by Demeter Fragrance Library, the perfumer was sweet enough to send me some samples of the six scents ($20 for each 1-ounce bottle). Overall, I think Demeter did a great job on this collection, creating wacky scents that translate into surprisingly wearable perfumes.

But while I really loved three of the scents, I was just so-so on the other three, so I've split my review into halves. To read about the three I liked, click here, and to hear about the three I didn't love,

I adore chocolate, so I was particularly excited to try Hot Fudge Sundae, which combines French vanilla, very cherry, chocolate pudding, and cream soda flavors. But I'm realizing that I don't really like chocolate-scented cosmetics, which often just smell weird. The cream soda and cherry are a nice touch, though. I almost with they'd taken out the cocoa entirely and gone for a cherry soda scent instead.

Unlike the delightful Mango Pineapple Salsa, which combined spiciness with crisp fruit, the Sugar and Spice blend is too sickly sweet. With elements of hot cinnamon, jalapeno, bubble gum, and tutti-frutti, this perfume was nice upon application, but over time, it made me smell like I'd eaten spicy food and tried to cover it up with fruity lotion.

I'm still going back and forth on the Wild Blackberry Peach Cobbler, based on wild blackberry, peach, and lemon. I wore it one night and really liked the way the citrus scent cut the fruitiness. But it also reminds me of a fake-smelling peach air freshener; the peach scent is just too overwhelming.
