Review: Flourish Almond Milk Perfume Oil

 A few months ago I made a comment on Facebook that someone should create a perfume that smells like a baby's head, because who doesn't love that smell? Well, someone went and did it. Almond Milk is a soft, sweet vanilla musk that makes me think of sniffing a freshly-washed baby (you know, minus that back note of baby chunder and poopy nappy).

At first I thought it was similar to Haus Of Gloi's Troika, but I compared them together today and Troika has a sharper almond note at the beginning and is not as sweet. It also reminded me of one of my favourite BPALs - the hideously difficult to find Love's Philosophy, and the vanilla base is definitely similar, but the saffron in that one adds a slight spicy edge that is not present in the smooth warmth of Almond Milk.

When Noodles was a baby, I would sit on the couch for hours holding her while she slept, just sniffing her soft little head. Now I'm doing that to my wrist while she sits on the opposite couch talking to her friends on Facebook about how laaaaame everything is.

In short, I love, love love Almond Milk and will be buying a full bottle of it ASAP. And possibly the body lotion to go with it.

  6. Emily, you should try Troika by Haus of Gloi as well then - the opening note is very almondy. It's much more gentle in Almond Milk. :-)
