My first Bathing Garden order is here! Finally after 6 weeks of checking the calendar periodically and counting the weeks to see if somehow time had magically sped up from the last time I checked. Now that I have experienced the wait though it truly wasn’t as bad as I had thought it would be or had heard most say it was. I would make (and am waiting) on another order; the Sleepy bundle. I can not deny that I am pondering another order to pick up a few back up’s before they are pulled for good.
Nothing Whatever –Earthy wild mint and ivy topped with vanilla cream
Sweet mint pulled fresh from the stem and crushed between the finger tips to release its crisp, earthy scent mingled with a creamy vanilla. Truly a whimsical scent just as playful as the decor adorning the surface.
Painting The Roses Red –Butter Cream Frosting and Coconut Cream Pie is layered over a blend of Raspberries and Roses
The scent of aged rose petals with the slightest raspberry note lingering behind mounds of butter cream frosting and shredded coconut.
Tea with the Queen -This tart is the most amazing scent of roobios red tea. Very comforting and mild, just like the drink.
Tea fit for a queen. Perfumery almost to the nose as the florals swirl around with each twirl of the spoon followed by the bitter elegance of pipping hot tea.
Alice & Lavender Land –French lavender with vanilla extract and marshmallow cream.
Each lavender is unique in its own way. Shannon’s french lavender is more of a heavy, true lavender that becomes less offensive to the nose and more inviting with the added sticky sweet marshmallow cream. This one will be perfect for night time slumbers.
Sea of Tears -“Fresh air, sea salt, ocean mists, and aquatic floral. This is a sweet and beachy floral scent.”
Very beachy for sure as my nose picks up an almost copper tone type fragrance followed by aquatic notes of salty sea air. Perfect for summer melting.
When Wonderland Dreams –Wild berries blend with sugar crystals and powdery white floral’s for a sleep full of dreams
Comes off a bit clean and soapy to the nose with a hint of sugar to keep it from totally being a fresh scent. Very nice. Can’t wait to see how this performs once warmed.
Non– Wonderland Goodies
Lacquered Lollipops– Floral undertones with top notes of candied sweetness.
Unsure of this one on cold. Very floral, a dried flower musk. Not much of a candied scent.
Lemon Cheesecake –Delicious cheesecake swirled with tart lemon
The juice of a fresh lemon is so tart it will make your lips pucker. The cheesecake in this blend helps take the edge off that tartness, working to curve it in the right direction of being the perfect smooth dessert.

Marzipan Poppy Cakes(Top left)–Creamy almond marzipan is swirled with pomegranate, orange, and spicy notes of cinnamon and cardamom
Nutty flavoring added by the drops folded gently into our soft dough like mixture that smells slightly of fall bakery from the orange and spicy undertones.
Sweet Madi (Left)- Sweet vanilla blends with succulent, ripe strawberries and the soft floral of violet and jasmine
Violet and jasmine dominate blended with a powdery vanilla lace and light strawberry.
Mad Hatter’s Tea Party-White tea is layered under cool Moroccan mint in this refreshing tart.
Moroccan mint hits the senses, electrifying and tingly. White tea soothes and relaxes in the background all the while blending together to create a tea fit for the hatter.
Looking Glass-A fruity floral with cassis, peaches, sugar, and musk.
Sweet peaches and sugar granulates with just the faintest kiss of musk sitting on a top of a bed of florets drenched in the darkest of cassis. Elegant and dignified.
Top to Bottom, Left to Right.
Mid Summer Song–Sugared vanilla, candied lemon and orange and sweet dark berries.
Very tart and candy like. Makes me think of the powdered fun dips that would come in multi-colors with the candy stick or the baby bottle pops with the sour powder candy.
Bee Smitten–Sweet lavender, rose, ylang ylang, honey and citrus.
I really do not care for this one on cold.. something about it has me holding this one far, far away as it almost makes me want to sneeze. Just think allergies, pollen and honey.
Guava Berry Gelato–Guava, raspberry, and strawberry iced up into creamy gelato.
Decadent creamy gelato with fresh strawberries and raspberries blended within to expose their seeds to give off its fruity aroma. At first the guava came off to my nose a bit funky but once you get past that and keep sniffing this is really a wonderful almost edible melt. DON’T EAT IT THOUGH.
Whimsy-Bergamot, orange, pineapple, and lemon combine with hints of banana and coconut for a bright and tropical smelling tart.
A beautifully complex fruity melt that makes me think of a mixture between smarties and a summer drink with hand squeezed oranges and bananas being the dominate notes. I think I may need this in a clam.
I am saving the last part of this order for a future post as it is pretty spectacular on its own and given its theme I think deserves its own post.
Did you order anything from the Wonderland collection? What were some of your favorites? Let me know!
