Mardi Gras - LTEC Scent List 2019
Note: If a scent lists Vanilla Ab or bourbon it is either a vintage oil already made, or it's a new batch made with a vanilla concoction I (Moona) have made with the vanilla I have left. The Vanilla crop was still pretty scarce this year, and most suppliers are still out. But all of last year I did the same thing with what I have and blended with the infused oil I made and not really a noticeable difference except for a few scents which is why they are absent for now.
Abigail: Sweet Vanilla sugared Violets in marshmallow cream, on a bed of golden Sandalwood and a peak of tantalizing dark cocoa.
Aurelia: Delicious ripe raspberries top this lovely, raspberry jam filled, white wedding cake, doused with vanilla cream, topped with dried red rose petals, and with a hint of Sandalwood ambered musk.
Love Potion: A dry woody Amber, spiced with blonde tobacco and rich Cardamon. Rolling with nuances of Cedarwood, sweet mown hay and Clover. Steaming with wafts of Tonka bean and a touch of Patchouli EO.
Amber Rose: A beautifully rich, and inciting, Amber, blended with real Bulgarian Rose essential. A heavenly blend.
Angel Food Cake & Coconut: This is the 2016/17 reformulation. Light as air Angel Food Cake with aromatic almond extract and toasted coconut!
Banana Tarte Tatin: Rich sweet banana filled puffed pastry with butter rum sauce.
Black Currant Berry Tart: Dark berries mingle with delight in a crumbly crusted tart!
Bohemian Rose: (formally known as Gypsy Rose) This scent, I love, it is true to my roots. It is what I imagine a classic Bohemian den would be full of; gorgeous paintings, gem toned velvets and glass, natural incense filtering through the air, and sultry music cascading throughout the room. Made of smoky and sultry natural Agarwood, real Bulgarian Rose, rich, vanilla amber like Labdanum resin and earthy Patchouli & Vetiver.
Bohemian Velvet: Sandalwood, Patchouli, and Nag Champa incense type of notes. Inspired from MoonaLisa's Haight Ashbury days as a Goth girl. It's like walking into one of those dark and exciting old pagan magic shops in the Haight. The lovely incense type aromas are sure to bring back old memories or build new ones.
Candied Strawberries and Liquored Filled Dreams: An irresistible medley of sweet juicy strawberries dipped in warmed crystallized raw sugar then doused with a rich hazelnut and vanilla liquor.
Candied Violets: Sugared violets on butter sponge cake.
Chateau de Chambord: Made from raspberries, blackberries, Madagascar vanilla, Moroccan citrus peel, honey and cognac to create an all-natural Black Raspberry liqueur. Indulge in Moona's new scrub concoction consisting of white chocolate cake scrub enveloping a Chambord ripple made of natural raspberry fruit fiber, black raspberry seeds, and scented with natural and artificially scented oils of cognac EO, raspberry, vanilla oils, with a fusion of natural citrus and just a touch of spice. Good enough for any King or Queen!
Cherry Clafouti: (2019 version) Rich butter cake, slivered almonds, tart cherries and creamy vanilla.
Chocolate Butter Rum Beignet: Dark rich premium chocolate covers a deep-fried Beignet soaked in buttery rum sauce.
Chocolate Covered Cherries: aka Cherry Cordial - Just like the candy! Chocolate covered cherry candy with liquor in it.
Chypre: A spicier more on the exotic side of life. Green notes of Mandarin Leaf, Orange Blossom, and Bulgarian Rose. Middle notes of coriander and Bulgarian Rose. Deeper, darker warm notes of Bourbon Vanilla, Amber, Labdanum, Musk, Tonka Bean, Sandalwood and Vetiver. PLEASE NOTE this may or may not be the original recipe, just one component may have to be replaced, not sure yet. One of the major components is from a supplier who is no more. So, if I have enough to make one more bottle of it the original recipe I will, otherwise it will be a very close cousin to it. Fortunately, the component in question is not a major player.
Cotton Candy Cupcakes: Ok, I said I never would but... I have these irresistible smelling cotton candy oils that beg to blended with a vanilla butter cake scent! So here she is, all fluffy and pink, so sweet she will give you a toothache when devoured!! NOM!!

French Quarter Coffee with Jelly filled Beignets: Cafe Du Monde's famous for its coffee and beignets! This scent tries to recapture that essence and the deliciously famous deep fried, powdered sugar-coated beignets with jelly!
