Evening in Ceylon Solid Perfume by Eliza Fragrances [Vintage Inspired]

Hello everyone! Its going to be 2012 and i still haven't uploaded my December perfume review! OoopS! Time flies ha.. Anyways i managed to make sometime and here we are :-) Im going to review a solid perfume today. Hope you ladies enjoy my review. :-)

Evening in Ceylon Solid Perfume by Eliza Fragrances

7g Solid: $10

Pretty isnt it :-)

The perfume comes in a really beautiful handmade box! It looks like a little gift.

Well unfortunately my box got a little crushed in the mail :-( But then again it still looks so beautiful.

So yes.. the perfume comes in a little tin and looks like lip balm :-) Its a really convenient package since we all love to carry our perfumes in our handbags. This is just perfect. Its small and convenient.

Now its perfume talk time ------->

Eliza Fragrances offers beautiful natural solid perfumes made using jojoba oil, beeswax and fragrance oils. Its almost all natural which we all totally love! The specialty of these scents are that they are all 'Vintage Inspired' So all the ladies who are crazy about Vintage stuff.. this perfume should be on top of your list :-)

The texture of the perfume is like lip balm.. very soft and easy to apply onto the skin.

Perfume Notes:

Intriguing and seductive. An exotic, mysterious blend of sweet citrus and bergamot, jasmine, carnation, and lily of the valley. A hypnotic union of patchouli, vanilla, and amber make up the base notes. 
(Inspired by Yves Saint Laurent Opium)

Im not sure why but this perfume smells very sweet and spicy to me.. its like a beautiful blend of spices.. maybe because of the name of the perfume or if its the perfume itself. Im not sure. If you look at the notes you will notice that it has nothing that would trigger a spicy smell.. well maybe its my nose :-) Anyways its a warm, sweet and spicy scent! I just love it! 

This perfume is a VERY STRONG scent.. but not overpowering.. its not something that will shout out loud. Its strong as soon as you apply it but it will slowly fade down and mix in with you and become a part of you. Making you smell rather spicy and interesting :-) 

This is something you can use everyday.. its a casual everyday scent.. that mixes well with your body. Just apply a little bit on your pulse points (i.e. wrists, inside of elbows, sides of the neck below the jaw, etc.) and you will feel all perfumed up and ready to start your day!

Those of you who think spices is not your thing.. or that you want something more fruity or flowery or cologney or even powdery.. DONT WORRY. Eliza Fragrances provides a wide range of fragrances to suit everyone's needs. You can request a set of samples and you will be able to try out all the scents available and decide what suits you best.

This is a set of samples that i received:

How convenient :-)

If you want to know what are the other scents that i enjoyed.. i would suggest Nerfetari! Its such a soft, feminine and fruity scent!!!!!!!!!! Gorgeous! 

So interested in Eliza Fragrances? Check out their website and facebook and get yourself a tin :-)

Will i recommend?

Dont you want to spend an Evening In Ceylon sipping a cup of Sweet Spicy Tea? :-)

Gwen's Blends Caramel Oatmeal Soap

Hey Ladies :-) I'm back with my reviews! So today my review will be on a natural handmade soap. This is the  first natural soap i have ever used.. so this is what i have to say:

Gwen's Blends Caramel Oatmeal Soap

5 oz. (141 g)

'It's not food. It's natural soap. Like caramel, it has a light brown color. Faintly sweet, it both soothes and exfoliates the skin with bits of oatmeal.   Honey moisturizes dry skin. Olive oil provides moisture; coconut oil gives it a rich lather. No added fragrances; this natural soap is unscented, handmade, and hand cut.  A cult favorite, Caramel Oatmeal Soap alleviates skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis. With continued use, it slowly exfoliates and fades blemishes and other skin discolorations due to hyperpigmentation.   Use as a face wash or on the entire body.  It's a perfect over-all soap.  It's even quite effective for spot cleaning dirt from fabrics. 100% All Natural Soap  5 oz.'


The packing is really pretty.. looks simple and nice. The soap is wrapped in brown paper and tied with a string. Not a fancy package but looks handmade and natural. Like a cute little gift.


The soap is light brown in colour just like caramel.. with little bits of oatmeal for mild exfoliation.


Its not a hard soap.. gets a little soft when the climate is warm but doesnt melt or break off so you can store it in room temperature. Get a nice little soap box and store it safe.


Has a lovely creamy lather which i enjoy very much.. lathers really well and cleans skin well. Removes all dirt and even oil from my skin. You would notice that along with the lather comes tiny bits of oatmeal ;-)


Well this soap is UNSCENTED. Thats bad for me because im a person who wants all my products to smell good.. i really wish it had a slight fragrance.. it would have been more enjoyable. But dont worry if you're a person who loves scented soaps you can try out the other soaps by Gwen's Blend which are scented! I will review a scented one for you very soon. For those who love unscented soaps.. THIS IS THE ONE FOR YOU!

Effect on skin:

Long term --->

I wouldnt be able to tell you the long run changes in my skin now but i will definitely finish up the soap and update this so you will know what this soap does in the long run. 

Short term ---->

But as of now.. i can tell that this soap cleans well and makes you feel really cleansed up after a shower but one thing that i noticed is - it slightly dries the skin so moisturizing is a MUST. You have to always remember to moisturize  after a shower. If you are a lazy person and wouldnt bother with a moisturizer please stay away from this product.. this is not  for you.


It exfoliates the skin mildly.. nothing too harsh so this soap can be used few times a week. I mainly use it on my feet and i love it. Even after a few washes i feel my feet looks better and im hoping that continuous use will help make my feet more soft and it would remove all the blemishes. I will update on that soon.

How many washes will it last?

[Will update this soon]

Will i reccommend:

If you are a person who loves natural soaps or just wants to try them you can try this.. its 100% natural so you dont have to worry about feeding chemicals into your skin and since it has some exfoliation properties its always an added advantage because continuous usage will help keep skin soft and smooth. Me liking this now.. so you can try it too and let me know what you think. Its definitely worth a try!

So want to know more about this soap and the other products offered by this company?
