Comments: I purchased the vanilla sampler for myself. The sampler has been unavailable for a long time, so, I jumped at the opportunity to purchase it. I gave it a 3 because 3 of the 7 oils just do not smell good. The vanilla buttercream is disappointing because it smells like air freshener for your car. The Tahitian vanilla smells like fruit mixed with vanilla. Not good. As for the vanilla sandlewood, I think it would be best for someone who likes sandlewood. I didn't expect to like it, so, I wasn't too disappointed when I sniffed it and confirmed my dislike. I was really hoping that would like all of the samples since I had been wanting to purchase them for a very long time.
FNWL Response: Thank you for your review, Stephanie. If you haven't already, please be sure that you are not basing your assessment of the aroma solely from sniffing directly from the bottle. FNWL Fragrance Oils are concentrated, and the optimal aroma is achieved once diluted in formulations. Since a product's aroma and fragrance are highly subjective, we strive to offer as many fragrance oil samplers as possible (and apologize this was out of stock) and provide fragrance oils in small sizes for evaluation and experimentation.

Comments: I enjoyed all the Vanilla fragrances!! All but the Vanilla Tahitian. Smells a little like old butter, but that's ok. I'm pleased with the rest over all!!!

Comments: The scents were great, but unfortunately they had all opened during shipping.
FNWL Response: Suzanne, I'm going to alert our Customer Care Department to your situation. Our key priorities include selling quality products, careful packaging and excellent customer service.
"I use (and love, love, love!) your Pearlesecent Micas which get me compliments all the time, from coworkers to makeup artists at swanky cosmetic counters. It's cool because people are always asking me where I bought my eyeshadow and it's satisfying to say, "I didn't buy it-- I made it!" As someone with a darker-than-medium skin tone, it's great to be able to blend my own colours that actually show up on me, e.g., 1 part Golden Glow to 1 part Matte Orange = "Yummy Peach"."
