We're introducing 4 new scents! Let's get into these descriptions, shall we?
The Tamela - This one is named after my homegirl and giving all the musky, deep, sensual vibes that's her! She has always asked for a deep blend and so I finally delivered! This scent is a perfect UNISEX smell. Let me give you an idea of what I mean by deep .. Patchouli, Tobacco, Amber, and a little Pineapple to round it out. It's sexy! 👄
La Lolita - This was made in honor is Silvia P, my friend and she helps around KBAB from time-to-time! ♥️ She calls herself Lolita so it was only fitting that we developed something that encompassed that. To her, Lolita means mysteriously fun and sexy and so that's what we went for! What's the deets? Well ... Peach, Magnolia, a little musk and then some lime to set it off!! Peach Maragrita me, please! 🍹
The Simpson - This is another UNISEX scent that I am in love with! My homegirl NJ (yes, the inspiration behind the NJ Body Oil) asked me to make a special body oil for her friends. They are outdoorsy and love all things nature, so we out nature in a bottle in the most alluring way! Say hello to an amazing blend that features Cedar, Geranium, Sage, Corriander, Patchouli, Orange, Mint and Vanilla. Sounds like a lot. Sounds like AMAZING! It's a winner! 🏞🎍
Bergamont & Vetiver with Jasmine and Sea Salt -
Think fruit meets sophistication. Think the Maldives. Think sexy. Bergamont is fruity, but it's rounded out with Jasmine in the middle and Vetiver to make it grown. You want it.
*USE WITHIN IN 6 MONTHS OF OPENING*
So I’ve become a repeat customer and definitely have staple products. I frequently purchase the Hair and Scalp Elixir, Charcoal Mask, Anti-Aging Serum, and the Honey Butter Face Scrub. I love them all but these are just the frequent purchases. I am still working through my initial order of the Osun face wash, a couple of the tinctures, and my most recent favorite...the eczema butter...it works so fast to heal eczema scars. Needless to say, I strongly recommend Kissed By A Bee Organics to anyone with skin. There’s something great for everyone.
