Cream Perfume Company Review & Giveaway! Ends 6/15. (Ended)


My sisters & I LOVE solid perfumes. I kept seeing giveaways from the Cream Perfume Company on various blogs and I decided to contact the company for more information about their products. They sent me all of the above products to review.

I use tons of lotion, especially for my hands. Making concrete REALLY drys them out. I have been using both the Travel Size Coconut Vanille Lotion & the Lavender Body Moisturizer regularly and they are both lovely. Very reasonably priced ($6 for the 2.5 oz size and $12 for the 6 oz), not greasy or heavy, nice scents that aren't overpowering. My favorite is the Coconut Vanilla, especially at this time of the year.

The solid perfumes are a great value for their price, $12 for .35 oz. I really love the wooden containers! I received Apricot Chypre & Organic Lavender Ecume. Like Diana from The Painted Lady Fingers, these seemed to last about three hours or so for me. Here's Diana's amazing review of The Cream Perfume Company's Organic Rose de Rosee & Mimosa Bouquet.

Lavender is the only floral that I truly love. I always find it to be calming and soothing and Cream Perfume Company's version is no exception. My sister Alisa is keeping this one for herself!

Apricot Chypre is nice, but not really for me. My favorite scents usually don't include floral notes, so I would have perhaps enjoyed this scent more without them. I love the apricot and black current at the beginning but not the florals at the end. My dog Wally totally approves of this though! His first sniff.

Taking it all in.

He likes it and decides to sit for a while until he becomes distracted by an evil squirrel that needed chasing.


Overall, I think the quality of these products is very high and a good value for your money! My only wish it that they make some new scents without florals, more fruit and nuts and spices and herbs. Rosemary, basil, orange, and almond are some of my favorites.

The Cream Perfume Company doesn't test on animals and uses ECOCERT certified organic essentials, absolutes and pure plant and fruit extracts. Their moisturizers are 100% vegan, wheat and gluten free, contain no glycol, parabens, sulfates, phthalates, silicones, synthetic additives or synthetic fragrances.

Their products can be purchased at Kaponga.com and they offer free shipping to the U.S. & Canada!
