Honeysuckle is one of my all-time favorite scents; it will literally stop me in my tracks when I pass by it. But those heavenly blooms just don't last long enough in nature, if you ask me, so I'm on the lookout for a year-round replacement. Perhaps because it's a sweet, but not super strong-smelling plant, it's difficult to replicate in scented products. Perfumes and soaps are usually too sickly sweet, too floral, or so light that they don't last very long. I haven't actually found one that made my heart sing yet, but I'm still looking! Here are a few promising candidates:
Wild Honeysuckle handmade vegan soap from Formulary 55
I ordered several olive oil soaps from this shop for my mom years ago when they were still called Sweet Petula, and my mom still talks about them! Sadly, they stopped making olive oil soaps at some point, but I'm sure their shea butter soaps are amazing too. Also, I love their packaging.
Honeysuckle kitchen basics set from Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day
I've tried hand soap from Mrs. Meyer's in other scents and really liked most of them. Somehow I didn't realize they made honeysuckle-scented products. I am definitely trying these soon!
Honeysuckle candle from Votivo
I love the idea of burning a honeysuckle candle on a summer night. This one has really good reviews. Votivo also makes a honeysuckle fragrance mist that looks good.
Honeysuckle perfume oil from Hidden Acres Soap Co.
I've been burned by bad perfumes in the past, haven't we all, but this one promises to be light and "true to wild honeysuckle on the vine," which is exactly what I'm looking for. Also, Hidden Acres Soap Co. has lots of happy customer reviews for all of their products.
All of these goodies are made from natural ingredients, without a lot of added chemicals, which is a bonus!
