Wanting to branch out from my Haus of Gloi addiction, I recently tried a body cream (or “Embalming Cream”) from Poison Apple Apothecary called Parlour. The scent is described as:
“The heady scent of sweet pipe tobacco wafting through a large parlor with dark oak floors and imperial furnishings”
Sounds just like something I’d buy, and I do really like this scent. I can smell the sweet pipe tobacco, the dark oak floors, and the imperial furnishings. However, when I first opened the jar I almost messaged the seller to tell her I’d received the wrong scent, as all I could smell was cooked apple. I found that once it is applied to the skin it develops the notes it is supposed to have. I also found that the scent actually developed more depth the longer it sat in the jar.
The cream itself takes a little bit more rubbing in that the average body moisturiser in my collection, but I find it very nourishing for my dry skin. It contains shea and cocoa butter, as well as other nourishing plant extracts.
I bought Parlour Embalming Cream from Poison Apple Apothecary for USD $12 (6oz) plus $4.95 shipping to Australia.
