One of my most recent and favorite finds has to be the Tokyo Milk line of fragrances and cosmetics. The line includes perfumes, lip balms, creams, lotions, candles, accessories and much more. There’s a large selection of different scents and products, and each and every one of them are designed beautifully. I ordered the following items.
Let Them Eat Cake perfume by Tokyo Milk
I chose a few different perfumes. The first one is called Let Them Eat Cake, and comes in a transparent glass bottle with a vintage image of a cake inside. The notes are sugar cane, coconut milk, vanilla orchid and white musk. And oh my, this one is delicious! I’ve been using it almost every day since I got it, it truly makes you smell like cake. It’s very sweet, vanilla-ey, and just lovely.
Arsenic hand cream and Tainted Love perfume by Tokyo Milk
The second perfume (pictured on the above right) belongs to the Dark collection, and is called Tainted Love. This one comes in a solid black bottle and has the image of an antique key on it. The notes are dark vanilla bean, orchid, white tea and sandalwood.
I’ve only used this one twice so far, and I like it, but I find it a little hard to describe. It’s definitely much darker and heavier than the other perfumes I ordered.
Pictured on the above left, is the Arsenic hand cream. Now, I rarely use hand cream, but this was the only product left in the Arsenic collection so I just had to get it. The name and the ingredients appeal to me greatly so even if it ends up as a display item only, it still was worth the purchase. The hand cream comes in a black tube with the image of a beetle on it. The tube is enclosed in a tailored sleeve and tucked within a keepsake bag. The notes are absinthe, vanilla salt, cut greens and crushed fennel.
Sugar Sugar perfume and Sugar Bomb perfume set by Tokyo Milk
Another perfume is Sugar Sugar. This bottle is decorated with a tempting cherry topped cupcake and that’s exactly what this perfume smells like: sugary sweet. The notes of Sugar Sugar are coconut milk, vanilla, sandalwood and basmati rice.
Sugar Bomb (pictured on the top and bottom right) is a mix and match set of different fragrances. The set contains two vials each of three companion fragrances, which you can mix together to create your own bespoke fragrance. Again all of them are very sweet, as the name suggests. The fragrances are vanilla orchid & honeyed cocoa, tonka bean & sweet amber and sugared crème & fennel.
Sweet Cream lip balm by Tokyo Milk
Last on the list is the Sweet Cream lip balm. The lip balm comes in little box with again the image of a cupcake on it. The notes are spun sugar, blend of vanilla bean and the lightest hint of caramelized cream. This one again smells amazing, it truly smells like cupcakes and puts you in a happy state instantly.
All in all, I am very pleased with the different products and scents, and the packaging is gorgeous. I’ll definitely be trying out more products in the future.
