Big garden in a tiny bottle
Date:September 10, 2013
I really loved this scent and it's a shame I can't get the lotion anymore. When I first spray this on it packs quite a punch, but mellows so wonderfully throughout the day. It's always nice to get a light scent of this when I'm feeling a bit down at work. It reminds me of my favorite park.

Floral wisps of exotic blossoms are steeped in silky coconut milk. Soothing Madonna lily extract and velvety monoi butter indulge the skin. Makes a gift of pure inspiration—for another, or yourself.

Lovely
Date:September 10, 2013
I'm not a huge fan of florals, but this one definitely won me over. The jasmine is light and clean smelling. I've tried other jasmine lotions/perfumes before and they always smelled too sweet, which could get annoying, but this one is perfect.

Similar to Rosemary Sage
Date:September 10, 2013
This reminds me a lot of the Rosemary Sage lotion I have, but with a bit cleaner scent to it. The tea part of this scent makes it a bit lighter than rosemary, which I do like.

Yummy darkness in a candle
Date:March 16, 2013
This candle impressed me beyond belief. When I made my Thymes order, I'd gotten a large Blue Spruce & Elderberry candle and only the votive of Brandied Pumpkin & Chestnut. I'm more of a fresh/clean scent fan than tasty smelling candles. Frasier Fir is my favorite. However, I wish I'd bought the large one of the Brandied Pumpkin over the Blue Spruce. I loved the rich smell of this candle. I'm always wary about pumpkin scents smelling too sweet, but this one is perfect and tempered wonderfully by the chestnut. It smells delicious in the same way that dark chocolate is delicious for it's rich depth. It's also elegant and sophisticated.
 
 Woodland Violet & Mint Candle Tin

With spring’s verdant optimism, this scented candle radiates a quiet vitality throughout your surroundings. Burns cleanly for approximately 32 hours, and is wonderfully refreshing even when unlit. Distinctive packaging design, with round tin and hand-touched details, makes this aromatic candle a thoughtful gift.

Light and simple
Date:March 16, 2013
My first reaction to this scent was mixed. I lit the candle and let the room fill with the scent, which was pleasant, but not wow-ing in any way. The next day I lit the candle again and the smell grew on me. It is refreshing as the description says and the lilac is wonderful. I'm not particularly keen on the mint part though. It is nice and adds a little "umph" to the refreshing side of the scent, but in general it smells a bit too stringent for my personal taste. The mint isn't overwhelming in any way, but I'd rather more lilac smell than mint.
Those who like light floral/ minty scents will indeed love this one. Overall, it is very pleasant.

With the invigorating freshness of forest air, this scented candle casts a crisp chill of woods warmed by sparkling herbs and exotic spices throughout your surroundings. Burns cleanly and is wonderfully refreshing even when unlit. Distinctive packaging design, with round tin and hand-touched details, makes this aromatic candle an appealing gift.

Surprising
Date:September 25, 2012
When I got this candle and smelled it, I was suddenly unsure of whether or not I'd like it. Luckily, once it was lit and the scent filled the room I was pleasantly surprised by the freshness of it. It exceeded my expectations.
 
 Rosemary Sage Body Souffle

Perfumery meets botany in a light-as-air body lotion. This deeply moisturizing body butter nurtures your skin and senses in freshly snipped hawthorn leaves, purple clary sage petals and rosemary sprigs. Enriched with moisturizing glycerin, shea butter, vitamin E and healing extracts of willow herb and calendula. Scooping cream from the wide-mouth jar makes for a lavish experience.

This is just as rich and luxurious as I had hoped it would be. The souffle is nice and thick, but extremely smooth. It's obvious Thymes cares about the quality of its products. The scent is amazing. I tried a sample of the Wild Angelica souffle as well and though I'm very happy with the Rosemary Sage, I think the next one I get will have to be the WA.

Happiness
Date:August 31, 2011
I've always associated oranges with smiles and Mandarin Coriander has me grinning from ear to ear. The cleaning products are good and don't leave behind the astringent smell that comes with most cleaners these days. It's refreshing and brightening - a comfortable sort of feeling knowing I've cleaned a surface that can also smell so nice. I also have the hand lotion and it's my boyfriend's favorite scent. It's such a cheerful scent.

Walk in the woods
Date:August 31, 2011
I'd never heard of Thymes until I saw their products in a gift shop in Grand Teton National Park. I'd been walking through the woods and loving the fresh smell of the pine trees all around. When I saw the Frasier Fir scent in the shop, I was curious and a bit skeptical because it's so difficult for scents to truly smell like nature itself. However, I was completely taken by surprise by how true the Frasier Fir hand lotion smelled to what I'd been experiencing out in the park. The soft smell of conifers in that heart-warming Christmas tree sort of way completely won me over and I've enjoyed the Frasier Fir collection ever since. I've gotten the oil diffuser, candles and hand lotion. Part of me secretly wishes there was a Frasier Fir cologne as well, despite how odd it might be to smell like a Christmas tree as a personal scent. I would love it though.

Renewal
Date:August 31, 2011
I'm not a huge cologne/perfume fan in any way. I've tried so many and been disappointed. At first I love the scent, but gradually grow tired of it. It wasn't until I bought Thyme's Eucalyptus cologne that I fell in love with a scent again and want to wear it daily. I've realized I'm not a floral type at all, which constitutes most perfumes these days. The fresh eucalyptus scent is completely refreshing to me and makes me feel so calm wearing it. I work in a rather smelly office (the company teaches martial arts, so I'm used to smelling dirty socks and sweaty gym clothes) and when I need a pick-me-up I just smell my wrists now. I absolutely love this cologne and feel a renewal for wanting to find more colognes with this sort of fresh scent to relieve my nostrils of those dirty gym clothes that attack my senses every day. The eucalyptus cologne isn't too strong nor astringent, as some "clean" perfumes tend to be. I've never been happier and will always hope Thymes keeps this cologne in the collection.
