Truly, a slice of sunshine!
Date:March 26, 2011
I'm proud to say that Neroli Blossom is my personal signature indoor scent. Between these candles and the matching reed diffusers, I have successfully brought the smell of my backyard indoors. My fondest childhood memories are of my tree fort I had built in an orange tree. Now, as an adult, I have citrus trees in my backyard primarily for their amazing scent. The Neroli Blossom candles last a very long time! I've had my candles for 3 years, and the scent is still as captivating and invigorating as when they were new. The scent is like walking through my citrus grove on a warm summer day.

The scent of my childhood
Date:March 26, 2011
I first became acquainted with Thymes products in 2007. I had purchased this reed diffuser and the matching candle as a Christmas gift that year for my mom. I picked this scent exclusively for her as a memory we share from my childhood. Living here in Southern California, citrus trees are a common sight. We had orange, grapefruit, and tangerine trees in our backyard. I had built a tree fort in one of our orange trees. The trees would bloom in the spring and summer, and their captivating scent would fill the whole property. Thymes has done a splendid job of capturing this alluring scent in all their Neroli Blossom products. This scent is our trip down memory lane. Thanks Thymes!

Complex fragrance with hidden surprise ... for me!
Date:March 25, 2011
Here is a review that I have been anticipating to write. I was willing to give Thymes Eucalyptus cologne a try, as I had already purchased a few of their other Eucalyptus products with great success. However, after realizing that this fragrance contains some citrus notes (lemon, lime, and petitgrain) blended with its obvious namesake woody and green notes, truthfully I was a bit apprehensive about trying it. My history with citrus-based colognes has never been pleasant, and fragrances with citrus notes have never smelled that great on me. Popular men’s colognes like Acqua di Gio and Bulgari Aqva actually smell like stinky unwashed armpit on me. Being familiar with trying on colognes through the years, I have enough knowledge to know that sometimes what you smell in the bottle doesn’t always smell the same on you after it mixes with your particular body chemistry. A fragrance can either smell good or bad after you put it on. Thus, when trying out a tester bottle at the store, I was expecting my forearm to smell a little rank after a few seconds, but I was totally surprised with the resulting scent! I really like it when a fragrance has a hidden surprise to reveal. At first spritz, I smelled this fragrance’s happy citrus notes, but amazingly the scent didn’t turn into body odor like I was expecting. Instead, the fragrance developed and became more complex. When mixed with my unique body chemistry, the scent of Thymes Eucalyptus cologne actually became more enhanced, with its woody notes becoming strengthened. After the citrus notes, there was this cool scent of fresh greens after a rainfall, much like what my gardens around my house smell like after a storm. The hidden surprise for me is this pleasant, woodsy, peppery, masculine scent that it develops after 30 seconds of mixing with my body heat and chemistry. I find this resulting scent so invigorating, and my girlfriend loves the warmth and intensity of this unique masculine scent on me. We both like that we can smell a crisp splash of sunny citrus in the background mixed with the scent of eucalyptus and fresh dewy greens in the morning. I didn’t really experience an alcohol scent like some other people wrote in their reviews, but I was amazed at the complexity of this cologne’s fragrance on me. So, as you may have guessed, I purchased a bottle of this fine cologne. I find this fragrance to be a successful unisex fragrance that both men and women can enjoy. In contrast to me, this cologne smells totally different on my girlfriend. The peppery note on me is absent on her. The woody notes become more subdued, but the scents of green eucalyptus leaves and tangy citrus come to the forefront. Unfortunately, after a few minutes, her resulting scent of the fragrance (which develops into something quite feminine on her) becomes very faint on her, to the point where you can’t really smell it that much. Thus, this proves that not all colognes (or perfumes, for you ladies) are for everyone. You’ve just gotta find the ones that smell the best on you. I am happy to say that I’ve added Thymes Eucalyptus to my personal repertoire of colognes, and I hope Thymes will continue to make this fragrance for many more years to come!

My girlfriend's happy I'm not a lizard anymore!
Date:March 24, 2011
I've never really been a lotion kind of guy, but since I had purchased the Eucalyptus glycerin soap and body wash, I am glad I bought this too! Aside from work and my athletic activities, I also feed the homeless two nights a week with my church. At the end of each night, I find myself being the one to wash all the pots, pans, dishes, and utensils. This, combined with washing my own dishes at home, has made for some really dry skin on my hands this past winter. So, after my shower each night, I squirt a couple pumpfuls of this lotion, and now I'm happy to say that my hands are not severely cracked like they were before I started using this lotion. I suppose my girlfriend is also happy to not hold hands with an alligator too! As with all the other Thymes Eucalyptus products I've purchased, the scent is intoxicating. I've even caught my girlfriend stealing a few squirts of this lotion for herself. I guess I'm gonna have to buy the little woman her own bottle!

Invigorates your morning
Date:March 24, 2011
Like I had first mentioned in my review of the Eucalyptus glycerin soap, I am new to the Thymes product line, and the Eucalyptus scent is the first Thymes fragrance I have bought for myself. I really like the way it smells, and being a guy, I certainly don't wanna smell too much like a girl. However, just because I am an athletic guy, it doesn't mean I want to smell like my sports deodorant all the time! What I really like about this body wash is that a small amount goes a long way. I squirt about the circumference of a quarter on my bath sponge, and it lathers up very well. The entire bathroom smells so fresh and clean afterward. The best way for me to describe the Eucalyptus scent is it's like a breath of sunshine with it's woody and citrus notes to great you a good morning. Thus, I use this product in the mornings to start my day, and it leaves me smelling good all day. I also like how this body wash adds moisture to my skin. I don't know if it's because of the eucalyptus oil or the other citrus extracts, but it leaves my skin feeling fresh and moisturized long afterward. Thank you, Thymes, for making an excellent product, and I hope you won't discontinue this scent anytime soon. Like I said before, my girlfriend really likes the way it smells on me too!

Wash your hard day away
Date:March 24, 2011
I am new to the Thymes product line, and the Eucalyptus scent is the first Thymes fragrance I have bought for myself. I really like the way it smells, and being a guy, I certainly don't wanna smell too girly. And just because I'm a guy, it doesn't mean I want to smell like my sports deodorant all the time! Being an avid road cyclist and muscle car enthusiast, I spend my free time after work or on weekends doing outdoor physical activities. Thus, it's important for my bath products to keep me smelling my best and to wash away the dirt and grime of the day, but at the same time, my bath products can't be too harsh on the sensitive skin I inherited in my genes. The first time I used this soap, it was a sunny and hot Saturday, and I had ridden my 60-mile bike ride in the morning and then worked on one of my Mustangs in the afternoon. I've found that the Eucalyptus glycerin soap performed very well and washed away all the sweat and crud probably even better than all my past soaps I've ever used, and it didn't leave me with itchy, dry skin! Thank you, Thymes, for making an excellent product, and I hope you won't discontinue this scent anytime soon. Plus, my girlfriend likes the way it smells on me too!
