|Danish Viking Smoked Sea Salt|
"Sweet temptation is beckoning. Remarkably uncommon essences infused in to a smooth, luscious balm. Elicit a kiss with lips tamed by a lush, silky blend of sweet Jasmine & Bee Balm laced with crushed extracts of hydrating Aloe Leaf & Vitamin E. Femme fatale incarnate. A supple seduction. Not for the faint of heart: An unexpected mixture of fragrance & flavor. A remarkable lip elixir for a remarkably uncommon experience. (Source: TokyoMilk)Fortunately, I like how it both smells and tastes! There is indeed a slight smokiness in the fragrance, along of the lines of a smoked ham with a sugar glaze as opposed to a wood fire smoke. Apparently, smoked sea salts get their distinctive flavoring from different hard woods in a fire that infuses the sea salt with a sappy smokiness. I've seen reviews that compared the smell of Smoked Salt to a Lapsang Souchong tea, and another said they found it to be a comforting scent.
The packaging reflects one of the things I like the most about TokyoMilk products - distinctiveness and flair. The tin is slightly larger yet thinner than one of the Rosebud salve tins, and you get .7 oz for $7 vs. the .8 oz for $6 of the Rosebud salves.
This is a petrolatum based lip salve, although there are some other interesting ingredients in the blend. The texture is what you would expect from a petrolatum based product, slightly thicker than Vaseline, smooth, and non-sticky.
