Smelly Yeti: Not the Bees

Smelly Yeti Not the Bees

Candied honey and honeysuckle, punctuated by the faintest hint of citrus and underscored with smooth vanilla.

I’m always on the hunt for good honey scents, and this little guy was highly recommended by a friend on the indie Discord server. She sent me her sample, alongside a sample of Bee Tsar. You can buy this on Smelly Yeti’s website for $3 US for a sample or $15 for a full size. You can also find it on Femme Fatale.

In the bottle: Very sweet honey. It’s pretty straightforward, to be honest.

On the skin: The honeysuckle comes into play and it adds more depth to the scent with the floral element. I think I can detect the tiniest hint of citrus to cut the sweetness a little. It’s definitely less sweet now and there’s something kind of refreshing about it. it’s really beautiful and very summery.

TL;DR: Sweet honey and honeysuckle with a touch of citrus. Great for warm weather. 4/5.

Sixteen92: Theda

Sixteen92 Theda

Tart sangria infused with ripe summer fruits (white peach, nectarine, berries, citrus), dark vanilla, wild vines, rose absolute.

I generally gravitate towards dark, sexy, autumn and winter scents with vanilla, musk and smoke. Basically, I like to smell like an insanely attractive demon on a daily basis. Because of that, I have very few perfumes that would be considered summery; Theda seemed like a good option to try since it sounded sunny and bright without being too floral. It is no longer available from Sixteen92 and I purchased a decant off of a redditor.

In the bottle: I’m gagging. The aroma of the alcohol is so horrifically strong that it could peel paint off the walls. Literally all I’m getting is astringent alcohol.

On the skin: After wearing it for about an hour, the alcohol has toned down a little bit, but it’s still very sharp and acidic because of the citrus. I barely smell any fruit or any of the florals and it’s beginning to give me a headache. Hopefully letting this one age will improve it because I currently hate it. This was a pretty popular scent too, so I’m sad it didn’t work on me.

TL;DR: Smells like someone spilled a whole bottle of citrus vodka onto my arm. HELL NO/5.
