Doctor Sweet Tooth – Handmade Scent Products

I confess, I have an undeniable sweet tooth and often crave chocolates, lollies and desserts during the day but, as they say, ‘A moment on the lips but a lifetime on the hips’!

So, you can imagine how excited I was to discover a way to enjoy ‘dessert’ without the calories. I am so happy to share with you this gorgeously fun find. I’ve been wanting to post about this amazing company and their products for a while.

What I like best about Doctor Sweet Tooth is that many of their perfumes and body and bath products feature whimsical and dessert-inspired scents designed to indulge your sweet tooth without damaging your waistline. They also make regular floral and designer-perfume inspired scents but for my first purchase I was mostly interested in their range of yummy-sounding dessert fragrances.

For my first order I was excited and wanted to try as many products as I could.

I chose a nice mix of scents in these products-:

After choosing my products, I then chose which scents I wanted these products to come in. This is the hardest part of the order because Doctor Sweet Tooth has a truly extensive and impressive scent catalogue. Starting at Acai Berry and going all the way to Wicked Witch, you’ll be spoilt for choice. In fact, Doctor Sweet Tooth carries over 200 amazing scent options with all products made in-house, fresh and sealed upon order to maintain quality.

If you have time, have a little peek at their current scent library here. It’s an amazing list of fragrances that stretches from A and is just a couple of letters shy of Z!

Here are the scents I tried and my personal impressions of them.

* Gingerbread (Silky Dry Oil Perfume) – My Favourite! A spicy, warm scent very much like freshly baked gingerbread cookies. I love this very festive scent. Best gingerbread fragrance I’ve ever tried.

* Vanilla Birthday Cake (Silky Dry Oil Perfume) – Buttery, vanilla-based scent just like vanilla buttercream.

* Waffle Cone (Solid Perfume) – Another personal favourite. Smells exactly like a waffle ice cream cone! Really nice as a solid perfume and I would love to try this as a Silky Dry Oil perfume too. Will definitely get some more of this scent.

* Creme Brulee (Talc-Free Dry Shampoo) – Deliciously sweet scent with caramel and vanilla notes in a unique Dry Shampoo product – simply dust some into your dry hair, shake and go! This was my first time using a Dry Hair Shampoo and it was interesting, if only a little messy to use as I got the powder everywhere. It was more a problem of my bad technique and not the product. This was a fun, delicious-smelling product for giving a little lift to tired locks on those greasy, bad hair days.

I also ordered a few of special bundle packs so I could try out more of their scents in sample sizes. These smaller-sized bundles of scents and are an economical way to preview a ‘flavour’ before committing to a full-sized version and would also make wedding favors or stocking-fillers.

Roll-On Perfume Oils

Roll-On Perfume Oils

Try Me Perfume Oil Roll On (4pcs) – USD 15.00 SET

Based on the items I tried, I found that the Silky Dry Perfume Oil and Solid Perfume products were my overall favorite way of enjoying Doctor Sweet Tooth’s scents. These products offered good value for money and carried their scents perfectly. The solid perfume comes in a uber-cute tin case and is a safe and handy way to carry a scent in your purse for a day out.

My favourite Doctor Sweet Tooth Product ~ Silky Dry Perfume Oil.

My personal favourite ~ The Silky Dry Perfume Oil.

I found this product non-greasy, light and such a pleasure to use. I preferred it over the spritzers and the roll-on perfumes. I also loved the metal bottle packaging which was unbreakable, good for travel and helped keep the scent sealed and fresh after each use.

Doctor Sweet Tooth was a really fun fragrance purchase because they are something different from the usual run-of-the-mill bath and beauty products I can buy from department stores or pharmacies.

I love that they are handmade, come in a such a wide range of amazing dessert-inspired scents and are quite reasonably priced.

Further to that, I’m always happy to try indie and handmade products and genuinely love supporting companies who make their products with a lot of TLC and a dash of personality. This brand fits the bill in my books.

Doctor Sweet Tooth ships worldwide.
