I'm a huge huge huge huge fan of scrubs (not all scrubs mind you, there's a rather negative review hidden in those links).
So enter the Haus of Gloi Soft Bubbling Scrub. I had heard that the Haus of Gloi scrubs were thicker than the av-er-age scrub and that piqued my interest (anyone get the reference?). Of the scents I received in the scrub formulation, I decided to try Eggnoggin first - tis the season after all. By the way, even though I'm Jewish I love eggnog though I usually pick up the Silk Soynog as it tends to be a bit healthier, still a bit gluttonous but not bad as the full fat variety.
ahhhhem - oh there you are
haul post, I purchased the sample sizes of a few of their holiday scents. This size is 2oz and clocks in at $3.50 and comes in a sturdy plastic tub with waterproof label (the angels sing because a lot of indie brands don't do this and it is a mess!).
I'll touch on two things here: 1) this scent and 2) the soft bubbling scrub formulation -
The Haus 'nog! Cream, sugar and a shot of dark rum topped with fresh nutmeg
I get a whole lot more rum than cream or sugar with this scent. Eggnog usually has a very creamy scent that covers a lot of the rum taste and smell in at least the commercial variety. This actually reminds me more of the rum buns which are like cinnamon buns except drenched in a rum runny icing sort of thing and usually has some raisins in it. That's the sort of smell I get. Very delicious but much less of a creamy scent than I was expecting. It also smells a tiny bit sharp as if you've just sniffed a bit of real rum which makes this a great scent to use when you want to wake up. I'm not sure how this scent would work as a body lotion or fragrance though as the strong note of the alcohol would make it more masculine smelling to me. Might be something for your significant other to try.
It's too early to tell if I'll repurchase this, but I think I'll stick to other scents if I do. Eggnoggin is too heavy on the rum for my tastes.
