No, this is not a post about that magnificent delicious rhum in your chocoballs. *uh, I want some chocoballs :9

Not also about my name, Ningrum!

And not about anyone named Arum too. 

But if you mention… ‘harum' (scented), you get it! :D

Because I’m talking about…

See the cute bottle? :3 It’s a shower cologne!

I bought this from My Lovely Sister . They/she have/has a garage sale section. 

She (or they?) writes (or write?) that the cologne (I mean Dress Room) has a sweet candy-like scent.  So…after thinking a lot and praying, I was like…Kyrie eleison, Dear God, forgive me, I BUY SOMETHING! LOL. 

(maybe up there, God said, “Oh, My Creation, why you spend your money again? It’s near the end of a month!”)

And after a weekend session, it arrived on Monday afternoon. Wrapped in a box and I got two sachets of Lioele and Suaocin samples. I opened the box and expected to smell some stickiness of sugar, but…

"Oh, where’s the candy part?"

Okay, should I admit it.  It’s not as sticky-sugary-sweety as I thought before, but I still love it. :D

To explain a scent, you need to expand your imagination. Read the following:

You’ve just finished a shower with your favourite soap or shower gel, and you’re ready to dress up.  Then you choose a chiffon dress in pastel colour. You wear it and you smile in front of a cute mirror.

VoilĂ , it goes like that! The Dress Room Lovely Look's scent reminds me of that scene.

Now, ingredients matter…

alcohol denat, water, dipropylene glycol, peg-80 hydrogenated castor oil, peg-8, butylene glycol, proplylene glycol, ethoxyoglycol, rosa centifolia flower water, onsen-su, jasminum officinale flower extract, lavandula angustifolia flower water, citric acid, hydoxypropyl cyclodextrin, hydrolyzed hyaluronic acid, ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate, ethylhexyl salicylate, bht, fragrance

Okay, it’s still okay I can find rose water, jasmine flower, and lavender water, but the rest…not my favourite. :P  Glycols, BHT, undefined fragrance (natural or synthetic?), and the others that I’m not familiar with.

But for a while, I’ll use this as my daily fragrance. It’s good, actually.  Good in nose, but I don’t want to use it forever (caused by the not-as-sweet-as-I-want scent and those ingredients). :D  I’m still searching for the real candy-sweet fragrance out there! I just haven’t met you yet, dear my holy-grail perfume!

Can you suggest me a fragrance with this description:

sweet, fresh, candyland atmosphere, all natural

Little note for tommorow:

Selamat Hari Raya Nyepi! :)
