I came across this scent while scrolling through the Tart Wars collection one afternoon brainstorming an order. Reading the description the scent note that caught my attention and made me purchase was the ice cream sandwhiches. I’ve never had the chance to smell ice cream sandwiches in a fragrance and that particular day it sounded amazing. Though the thought that ran through my head a day after my order was, “Oh no.. what was I thinking?” Ice cream sandwiches have chocolate. Cookies & cream.. chocolate. I’m not the biggest fan of chocolate in home fragrance. I’ve found that I can tolerate it with a little mint but usually it’s a no go. Let’s hope it’s not gross like ole Jaba .
I was pleasantly surprised pulling this from my package and smelling it for the first time. Though the clamshell literally has the words GROSS stamped into it I still really enjoyed this fragrance. It’s different but in a good way. Cookies and Cream and raw sugar are the first notes I’m able to pick up on but if you continue to inhale deeper the berry confection can be detected. Once warmed the fragrance changes and the berries which I believe to be blackberries (cherry maybe too?) burst and come alive mixing with the cocoa of the cookies & cream, creaminess of the vanilla ice cream blending together to create a light sugary bakery scent. I didn’t expect to like this fragrance and it’s probably an underrated melt but I’m glad I gave it a try.
One cube threw strong for me in my spare room in a tea light warmer for 4 hours before I switched it out.
Until next melt,
