Hey, babies! If there is one thing that is important to me and my self care ritual, that’s smelling good. I love to have a scent for every different mood and then some. Sucreabeille is great because they are always coming out with new scents that blow me away. I’m not joking and I’m not being paid to say this…they are literally incredible. This indie perfume company has a master perfumer that can create scents you didn’t even know you needed in your life. Want to smell like candy? Sure. Want to smell like the actual winter? Cool! Want to smell like a witch that lives a solitary and quiet life in the forest? I’m pretty sure they can make that happen. Luckily, if you need ideas, they have you covered via a subscription box. This is the Sucreabeille August box.
The most giant of thank yous to Andrea for sending the Sucreabeille August box to me. She is an absolute doll and one of the nicest business owners I have ever worked with. She’s also a scent master. If you haven’t experienced her perfumes before, you are missing out. Let’s see what was inside the Sucreabeille August box.
Don’t Panic: I am a big fan of Douglas Adams and just seeing the label on this one made me smile. When I first smelled it, I wasn’t sure what I was experiencing. It was almost minty, but not quite and it smelled very green. It wasn’t until I read the scent list that I understood. The initial scent reminds me of the smell of tomato plant stalks. It’s that fuzzy green smell. To be honest, I wasn’t sure I wanted that in a perfume but HOLY CRAP did it turn into something gorgeous. This went from strange, musty and green to an expensive, vintage perfume. This turned into something that smells like it’s sitting in a decorate bottle on your grandmother’s vanity. I ADORE this perfume. It has notes of tomato leaf, heliotrope, galbanum, petrichor, sweet grass, clary sage, lemon verbena and fresh turned soil.
Sea Hag: Oh look, a perfume named after me. I love the name of this one and as someone that enjoys the “water” type perfumes, I was definitely excited to smell. This has notes of cool rain sprinkling into ocean water, petrichor, lime and sweet orange. It is filled to the brim with citrus and it tends to take over…at first. Sitting on the skin allows the citrus to calm and lets the ocean tide come in. It becomes a clean and sweet fragrance that is perfect for summer. It reminds me of the Bath and Body Works retired scent Dancing Waters.
Pacific Rose: I am a sucker for rose scents. It must have happened as I got older and now all of a sudden I love the smell of roses and watch Murder She Wrote. I love how sassy Jessica is! Anytime I can smell rose in a new way, I am all about it. Here, you get to smell rose on the ocean. This perfume has notes of red rose, ocean spray and sea moss. This is a lovely blend of clean and floral that turns into a very sweet floral end like frangipani.
We Are Stardust: This scent in the Sucreabeille August box was made for the 50th anniversary of Woodstock. This tribute smells of daisies, sandalwood, lilies, vanilla cream and patchouli. You’ll feel like a delicious hippie in this one. It’s like deep incense dipped in vanilla mousse. This is a great scent for all year long.
Pride: I unfortunately don’t have a scent profile or link for Pride but it smells like vanilla and the most bubbly of all bubbly drinks. If something could smell effervescent, this would be a perfect example.
Socks and Crocs: Now THIS is my jam. Apparently, I am a 40-year-old dad because I dig the combo. This smells like a Christmas tree. That’s all I can think of when I smell this. I would adore this in a room spray. It has notes of figs, black currants, cedarwood, bergamot and pink peppercorn. I love the Blackcurrant perfume from Sucreabeille as well, if you’re looking for something on the sweeter side.
Guy Love: Ah, dude love. Is there anything more pure and wholesome? Yeah, probably. But this scent is bananas. I will say, that the leather/suede is the prominent scent but it’s not overwhelming or unpleasant. This smells like a leatherwork shop but the suede notes are calmed by pears, cucumber, hay accord, ginger lily and cardamom. This is another scent I would love to be able to spray around my house or in my car.
Not Today Satan: Jesus, if this isn’t the epitome of 2020 in a perfume, I don’t know what is. I love the label on this one. As a child of the 80s/90s, this is a familiar sight to me. This smells of candied grapefruit, rice milk, beeswax, tonka and asmanthus. This is an incredible balance of tart and bitter grapefruit and the heaviness of the milk and tonka. They are opposite ends of the spectrum that dance together creating a layered perfume, perfect for summer.
Stay Sexy and Don’t Get Murdered: By pure coincidence, I was listening to Episode 240 of My Favorite Murder as I was writing this article. I am a true Murderino and I was sad when I didn’t love how this perfume smelled at first. You get a big whiff of pure honey when you first smell this one but, since my bottle decided that it wanted to leak half of its contents all over everywhere like a perfumed snail trail, it began to grow on me. I started smelling something beyond the honey, like a sweet vanilla, and I grew to love this one. It smells of Tahitian vanilla (called it), honey and grapefruit. If you love honey and vanilla, you will ADORE this scent.
That’s it for the Sucreabeille August 2020 monthly box. The thing I love most about this monthly box is that it offers scents from all different corners of the website that you never would have thought you would liked. I never would have picked anything with a prominent honey smell, but here I am, loving the honey and vanilla combo of Stay Sexy and Don’t get Murdered. Each scent is linked above, but if you would like to shop the monthly boxes, you can do so HERE. There are three tiers, depending how much you want to try. Even though these perfumes were sent to me, I was not paid for this review and all opinions on the items and the company are my own.
