Haul: Rosegirls Haul #5 (August Order)!

When Rosegirls opened back up in August, I placed two orders: one was for a sampler, and one was for a few new/fall scents and some favorites.
Well, I guess I placed a bigger order than I thought, because I was surprised when I got my package about two weeks ago!
Let's get into the scents and stuff, yay! (IMAGE HEAVY!)
I absolutely LOVE this thank you card! AGHHHH, so cute!!
My samples!

  • Frosted Pumpkin Funnel Cake: AMAAAAAAAZING scent. Slight spice, but overall just a nice, sweet bakery. Love the blue and orange chunks!
  • Ultimate Caramel Apple Pie: the name says it all, I think...insane apple and caramel smells mixed together with a slight crust note. Good!
  • Orange Sherbet and Pomegranate: this smells like a 50/50 bar with more tang from the pomegranate. I LOVE IT!!
I'll talk about the brittle first. I got a couple bags of scents that intrigued me enough that I thought I'd like them as stand alone scents.
  • Pumpkin Chai: recommended to me highly by Karen (Suukasi on YouTube), I really like this! I think it will be better in a month, and the overall cold sniff is extremely spicy, not so much chai. I have a feeling the chai smells will come out with cure time.
  • Cozy Comfort: this scent is INCREDIBLE. I absolutely love it. It smells a bit like celtic moonspice or a spicy amish quilt. EXTREMELY cozy!
 Muffins next! These are my own, personally made blends!

  • Pumpkin Cupcake, Pumpkin Chai, Celtic Moonspice: I added pumpkin cupcake at the last minute and I wish I would have left it out...that being said, this is nice, just not what I was going for. It's just a bit too bakery for me. Next time, I will blend celtic moonspice, cozy comfort, and perhaps pumpkin chai.

  • Watermelon Slush, Raspberry Sauce, Pink Sugar: BRILLIANT combination! The watermelon and raspberry go so well together, and pink sugar just gives it that sweet kick I love. I should have also gotten a bag of Pomegranate Watermelon Slush, though.
Full bags next!
  • Pumpkin Carrot Cake: I think this is my least favorite from the order. I don't like the carrot smell in this, but I'm hoping it'll go away after cure time/smell better while warming. I wish this was spicier!

  • Apple Cider Donuts: lovely sweet donuts, slight cinnamon, and that overpowering apple cider...wonderful! I like this, but I don't think I need a whole bag of it. It was a last minute, jump-the-gun purchase.

  • Cinnamon Glazed Oranges: uh-may-zinnnnnnnnnnnng! You get that sweet orange mixed with a spicy cinnamon...this is going to be a favorite, I can tell.

  • Strawberry Euphoria: a huge favorite as of late, this is a super-duper strawberry concoction and I think it lives up to the hype. You obviously have to LOVE strawberry, and I do, so think smells great to me.

  • Grapefruit Swizzle Sticks: I've had this on my to-buy list for the last 3 re-openings and forgot about it each time. This is nice, but it's got hints of the grapefruit I don't like...I liken it to B.O. In this case, it's not heavy, and I think it will dissipate while warming, but on cold sniff, it's there and hinders my enjoyment of it. The grapefruit is refreshing with the swizzle stick blend, though.

  • Monster Cookie Fluff Puffs: Josh doesn't like this scent, but I do. It's so good, it's like cookies and flakiness and puffy marshmallow and I don't know what I'm's just brilliantly amazing. So good. If you're a fan of bakery, try this.

  • Alice in Wonderland: repurchase for me. The combination of scents (honeydew, something, and something) make this smell like watermelon to me. I absolutely love it. PS: cool colors!

  • Strawberry Lemon Custard: another favorite in the RG community, this is another fantastic scent. I love RG's lemon and strawberry scents individually, so together, this smells like a winner on cold sniff!
Are you going to order from Rosegirls during their next reopening? Let me know what you plan on getting and if you've tried these scents, let me know how you enjoyed them!!


  1. I had a chunk of Monster Cookie Fluff Puffs way back in a gift (or swap?) from Abby and LOVED it. That was my introduction to Rosegirls.

    Cinnamon Glazed oranges and your pumpkin blend muffin both sound yummy.


    1. Monster Cookie Fluff Puffs is so so so good. UGHHHH I almost can't stand it! It's amazing.

      Cinnamon Glazed oranges is great, definitely one to buy in October for the holidays. Also, like I said, I will save you a muffin of my blend! :)

  2. Can I steal your idea for mixing celtic moonspice, cozy comfort and pumpkin chai? That sounds awesome! I got a sample of strawberry euphoria and strawberry lemon custard in my sampler and I love them both. RG strawberry is so nice. I plan on ordering at their next opening. I will set alarms and do whatever I need to get some more RG wax in my home! LOL I would like to get Monster Cookie Fluff Puffs, lavender mixed with Gillians Brew and marchmallow smoothie, a peppermint mix, Strawberry Blonde, Oh La La, Save the Drama for Your Mama, and maybe the Fairy Woods one. I need to start saving!

  3. Oh! And if you want to sell your Apple Cider Donuts, I will GLADLY buy ;-D

    1. I might be selling it! Can you email me? :)

  5. I haven't tried too many scents from RG, but I have had the chance to try Pumpkin Chai. That is one of the most amazing pumpkin scents I've tried!! I've never really had anything Chai before, so I'm not sure if I smelled the Chai in it melting or not, but it was a nice relaxing cozy pumpkin scent!! I think you'll love it!

    Your order looks fabulous!! Enjoy it all!! <3

    1. Your comment gives me hope! I was a bit nervous that the chai would be too nutmeg centric, which can come off as icky. YAY! I am looking forward to melting this throughout the house!

      Did you order? Are you going to order in October?!
