I’ve had the pleasure of trying a majority of the Southern Comforts line and while everything hasn’t completely suited my fancy, skin chemistry is a fickle beast, I have found two favorite scents and a new favorite balm that has done wonders for my dry hands.
I’ll discuss the two scents as a whole first and then individual products.
West Memphis Sweater Weather: When you first sniff Sweater Weather in bottle you get a jolt of creamy sweet coffee backed with baked goods, small hints of something like vanilla slip through and tickle your senses. It is as if you walked out to your kitchen to a fresh hot pot of coffee with a type of chocolate creamer and a fresh baked sweet treat is already waiting for you. While still wet on my skin, a light smokiness slips through and mingles with the amped coffee. Dry it is 100% coffee, which I love. It is a scent that I most enjoy in the morning, it makes me feel like I’m starting my day right.
Birmingham Breakfast: My initial sniff is syrupy, coffee, goodness. I am transported to breakfast and immediately want to lick myself. It is rich, sweet, and creamy. I love gourmands and this plays right into my favorites. On my skin I immediately smell the rich fatty bacon. It really comes out the play, slightly salty smelling, very very rich. As it is drying down I get more French Toast and Syrup, you get a slightly citrus from the orange juice. I don’t really smell Champagne but that is totally okay. Total drydown really brings out the french toast, sugary, syrupy sweet.
As individual products, I find that the solid perfume packs the most punch scent wise. Both perfumes, solid and in oil form pack a fairly solid throw for me. In respects to these fragrances they both have notes that amp on my skin chemistry. From my testing they last quite some time on me, at least 3-4 hours.
As far the belle of the balm goes, this has become my go to cuticle/hand balm. I’ve always had dry cuticles but since using the belle of the balm (around 2 weeks). I’ve noticed a significant difference. They are now soft and not brittle. The balm itself comes in a 2oz tin that screws tightly so the balm doesn’t dry out.
