About Twinkle Apothecary

Desert herbs and incense

At a glance...

Top notes: pinyon wood, holy basil, sage 

Middle notes: lavender, pink lotus, clove 

Base notes: tobacco, amber, vetiver 

This gender-less stand-alone fragrance smells like fall in the American Southwest.

First - bright, clear, sweet woods with a resinous, smoky undertone introduce cool, grassy herbs

Next - crisp, green herbal notes begin to intermingle with a hint of warm spice - the juxtaposition of which being almost reminiscent of licorice. 

Finally - the warmth of the spice notes takes over and leads into rich, deep, smoothly sweet pink lotus. Notes of leather and incense with a lush-but-dry herbal undercurrent remain on the skin at the finish.

Beautiful scent!

I bought the alcohol version of this, and love it! To me, this has a unisex vibe to it and does remind me of being in the high desert. The notes I smell most in this scent are the pinyon, sage, clove, tobacco, and amber. The scent lasted several hours after application. I love that these scents are natural and not lab-created. Recommend! :)

Yay! I'm so glad to hear that you love it. Thank you so much for the great review!

New fav!

My “go to” every day since I received this! Love the long lasting warm woodsy snuggle feeling when I wear it. Many compliments too! I ordered an extra.

Ooh, that's a great description! Thank you for sharing a review!

Lovely composition, if not for me

The sample purchased arrived beautifully packaged and quickly. This frangrance is very long lasting. Initial notes are earthy and sweet. I found the incense-like lingering to be too strong for my personal tastes, but can see how the whole fragrance works together nicely.

Thank you so much for sharing such a thoughtful review! If you're ever up to test more samples, I'd recommend Desert Musk, or perhaps layering Smudge with Amber for a lighter take on this herbal, earthy type of scent profile. Feel free to email if you have more questions :)

Subscriptions

The Surprise Scent Monthly, Off the Menu, and Collect them All Club subscriptions work the same way. To sign up, place your order by the 14th of each month by 12 pm US central time. The boxes (or envelopes) will ship on the 15th, or next business day if the 15th falls on a weekend or holiday.

Ordering after the 14th at noon puts you on the list for the next month's box.

Example: To sign up for a January Subscription box, you can order anytime between December 14th at 12:00 pm - January 14th at 11:59 am.

Ordering on January 14th at 12:00 pm or after will sign you up for the February box.

What's in the next box: The next month's Off the Menu item and a hint for the upcoming Surprise Scent will be revealed on the respective product pages after the 14th at noon each month. Be sure to check the product pages on the afternoon of the 14th to see what's in the next month's box, especially if you are not subscribed to my email list or push notifications!

You will always be charged for the next month's box each month on the same day (and exact time) that you placed your original order. If you would like to cancel or skip a month, you'll need to do so before your charge date. If you are not able to cancel before you're charged, simply email me to be refunded any time before I make the products on the afternoon of the 14th.

If you sign up for multiple subscription boxes (fun!) I will ship them all together to you on the 15th and refund any excess shipping fees.

For regular subscribe-and-save recurring product orders, your item will ship within 1-5 business days from the time you place your order.

Split-shipment policy: If you are ordering other, non-subscription items at the same time as your subscription box (Off the Menu, Surprise Scent, Collect Them All Club,) and you would like to receive your non-subscription items before the 15th, please place a separate order. I can only double-ship your order if the other items in your order qualify for free shipping on their own. If you've ordered enough to qualify for free shipping but want me to hold the other items to ship at the same time as your subscription products, great! Feel free to leave a note with your order and let me know!

All subscriptions are self-service.

How to cancel: You may cancel your order any time before your next charge date by logging into your account and clicking on the "My Subscriptions" button. If you are unable to cancel before you're charged, please email me to be refunded ASAP, before I make and ship your product. I cannot refund products that have already been made and/or shipped.

If you are unable to access your account for any reason, please email me and I'm happy to help.

If you move: you are responsible for updating your shipping address before your next charge date. Orders shipped to the wrong address will not be refunded or replaced. I am happy to help you update your address, but you will need to email me before your order ships!
