NEW – Villainess Bad Apples 2011 Fall Collection

Villainess Bad Apple Soap and Candle

This autumn, Villainess is launching 4 new, limited edition scents based on a corrupt orchard: Bad Apples. These scents are available in Soaps and soy wax Votive Candles. Here’s the newest fruits in the Villainess line-up:

Discord – “Golden apples fairly glowing in a resinous haze of amber and myrrh and dripping with dragon’s blood.” – FYI dragon’s blood is a legit resin, not some headshop incense ;)

Just Right – “Apples done up in honey and grandma’s own buttery pie crust, steaming Earl, and warm milk so sweet you’ll never want to leave.” – Sounds like a must try for lovers of gourmands.

Proscription – “Apples. Or pomegranates. And does it really matter which? Just out of reach behind a wash of earth and bitter herbs.” – In my mind, this is the Rosh Hashanah fragrance because of the symbolic fruits.

Twistappel – “Green apples, sharp and discordant with fresh ginger, acrid leaves and blood-deep wines.” – This description stands out the most to me.

So do any of these stand out to you? I like the look of the collection. Since childhood I’ve associated more with the evil queen in Disney’s Snow White than with Snow White. I guess I’m a bad apple.

Villainess Burn Candles Bad Apple

The Soaps retail for $5 and the Burn! Candles for $8 at Villainess. Rumor has it that the limited edition candles are selling out quickly.

  1. It has been a while since I’ve bought from Villainess. I LOVE their smooches/scrubs..
    I really like the sound of Discord. However, I am on a no-buy as of yesterday (dear husband reminded me that I am still a student..lol)..Dawn’s sale and now a Villainess sale- you people are killing me!!!
    :)

    • That’s my luck too! The best deals ALWAYS happens when I’m broke or swore a no-buy. It never fails.

      I’ve never tried their scrub but a good body scrub always makes me happy.

          • sorry didn’t mean to tempt you (but then you’ve been doing the tempting till now..:P)

            yeah – I realized I really shouldn’t be buying anything (perfume) for the next few (or more) months, so I’ll keep you company and occasionally remind you to NOT buy..:)

          • You have no idea how badly I need that reminder :) At the end of this month, I’m going on a no-buy. This includes cosmetics too. *yikes*. Do we need to form a support group?

          • support group!!- that was the name I was looking for! Yes, please please. That will help me not be tempted to buy AND still follow all the blogs I love..

          • There should be. Like a “Biggest Loser” of fumeheads. If you make it to your goal, then you get a fragrance freebie.

    • I think we’re twins. My most despised perfume on the planet is DKNY Be Delicious. I rarely “hate” perfumes but I hate that one. And VS Love Spell.

        • I love the smell of actually apples, but “fresh” apple scents bother me. To my surprise, I loved Bois 1920 Sushi Imperiale and it’s apple-y. But, it’s gourmand/sweet too so that’s why I love it.

          • These villainess scents seem to have enough going with the resins and honey, so as not to be too fresh or green apple-y..I don’t mind the smell of actual apples (Especially fuji red apples -yum!), but the thought of their scent in perfume never seems appealing to me..Oranges now- bring them on!
            I need to try the Bois 1920 – maybe then I will know if I can do apple in perfume..

          • I always think of shampoo when I think of perfumed apples.

            I really thought I disliked apple as a note until I tried Bois 1920.
