Platypus Dreams Haul in Pictures!

My entire order, the entire bottom row are samples/freebies.
Cupcake Soaps! From Left to right, Angelica, Temptation #5, and Sweet Sugar. It's a little hard to see unless they are completely unwrapped, but each cupcake has a little rose!
7 pack Bath Bombs! From the top row clockwise, Beyond Karma, Cranberries & Champagne, Lavender & Bergamot, Patchouli & Geranium, Vanilla & Ylang Ylang, Velvet Rose, and in the center Black Raspberry Vanilla.

Gypsy Queen soy wax clamshell. Scent description from Platypus Dreams' website, "A beautiful exotic smell with Citrus, Amber, Woodsy sheer musk." This is the body safe wax that can be used as a moisturizer, so I'm going to have to give that a try.
(Assuming it's not too hot of course!)

Left: Heart's Desire. Extremely Feminine with a bouquet of gardenia, sweet lilac, wild oakmoss, light amber, and white jasmine.
Right: Cotton Candy. Top notes: vanilla, caramel, and cotton candy. Mid notes: citrus, raspberry, fig and strawberry. Base notes of vanilla, caramel, woody musk and light powder.

Handmade soap sampler. Randomly chosen 8 mini soaps. From left to right; Cherry Blossom, Arabian Nights, Incarnation, Cashmere Creme, Desert Rose, Clarify, Four Thieves, and Cotton Candy.

Soap offcuts. Randomly chosen. A great way to try different scents without having to commit to a full bar. 400g worth of soap at an amazing price. Scents received from top to bottom left to right, Aphrodisiac, Dead Sea Mud, Lavender Mint, Cotton Candy, Beyond Karma, Cherry Blossom, Arabian Nights, Vovacia, Cashmere Creme, and the bottom two are Fruit Tingle. (There are a couple duplicates)

The Samples! The first one is my favorite. Boudoir Violet Rose Bubble Bath Cupcake. I love the red rose in the center. So adorable!  On the right is a Vanilla Musk Bubble Bath Cupcake, with a blue flower on top. The last item on the bottom is a sample size soap in the Buttered Popcorn scent. And yes, as odd as it may sound, it really smells like buttered popcorn! I'm not entirely sure if I will actually use it, I don't really wanted to be buttery smelling, but it does have a novelty appeal to it.

So that's everything for this order. So many scents and products to choose from, that's why I have to get the samplers and grab bags. It's so hard to stay within a budget otherwise! Thankfully I have a lot to play with for now, and as I go through each scent I'll be doing a quick blurb about it, either here or on the Facebook page (depending on the amount of content).

 I will definitely have another haul before returning home. Platypus Dreams will ship to the United States, but the cost of postage is so high (in both directions) it may be prohibitive to some. Which I completely understand. I LOVE my wax vendors from home, but the cost of getting it here has caused me to order much less than I used to. But it's not so bad, it has forced me to try new places, like this one!
