week 2, which means 4 are carrying over. Here are the one's I used up.
week one. This is a silicone based (cyclopentasiloxane, dimethicone, squalane, ethylhexyl palmitate, cyclohexasiloxane, olea europaea (olive) fruit oil, butyrospermum parkii (shea butter), fragrance/parfum, tocopherol, citronellol, geraniol, linalool) leave-in hair treatment, lightly scented with a rose and geranium floral fragrance. It works well enough but I prefer the After Bath Hair Treatment in the emulsion formula instead.
Now for the item I surprisingly feel in deep like with and am considering purchasing - Fumerie Turque by Serge Lutens. This was something I picked up from Surrender to Chance, an online company that decants fragrances for purchase. It was a part of a Serge Lutens 3 perfume sample bundle, and I had forgotten about it. This oriental fragrance contains notes of honey, juniper berries, tonka bean, chamomile, patchouli, vanilla, turkish rose, red current, tobacco, styrax, and suede. The marketing lingo features the phrase "smoking can kill you", which I like :-) I got 3 uses from the sample, and it took all 3 wears to hook me. On the third day I used a bit more trying to empty the vial, and apparently it was the right amount because the scent lingered all day and the dry down phase was wonderful. A full bottle would set me back a whooping $300, so I will purchase a larger sample from Surrender to Chance so I can revisit this again.
