Around The World Series: Uganda (Kiehls Aromatic Blends Vanilla & Cedarwood Fragrance) - xSparkage

Around The World Series: Uganda (Kiehls Aromatic Blends Vanilla & Cedarwood Fragrance)

By  |  159 Comments

Kiehls new Aromatic Blends Collection includes four fragrances: Orange Leaf & Lychee, Fig Leaf & Sage, Vanilla & Cedarwood, and Nashi Blossom & Pink Grapefruit. The Aromatic Blends collection has formulated these fragrances to be a truer rendition of the ingredients involved, using high quality key ingredients to get a scent that really reflects the areas they are inspired by.
For the release of these fragrances, I’ve teamed up with Kiehls to bring you four looks inspired by the fragrances themselves and the areas around the world they were inspired from. (click to see the different looks!

Orange Leaf & Lychee: Morocco
Fig Leaf & Sage: Provance
Vanilla & Cedarwood- Uganda
Nashi Blossom & Pink Grapefruit- Japan

Each scent comes in three forms- A fragrance, body wash, and body lotion.

For the third tutorial in this series, I chose to do a look based off of the scent Vanilla & Cedarwood and it’s inspired area, Uganda. This scent is inspired by the fair-traded vanilla from Uganda, and has a very prominent vanilla scent, but is also smokey and slightly sweet. It’s not like the traditional scent of vanilla you think of that you get from your grocery store :) There is also a woody, smokey scent from the Cedarwood.

I chose to do a look that was colors I think of when I think of Africa- Browns, golds, and blacks. This look has an interesting crease and the liner is thick on the bottom lash instead of the top. I love how this came out, sexy and wearable!

    I don’t normally like vanilla-scented things so I am curious to see if this will be more to my liking since it’s a smoky vanilla.

    That scent sounds awesome, I love anything vanilla. I like how you described it as sweet and a little sultry, and your eyes are the same – the top is very sweet with the neutral glitter and the bottom is more sultry with the smoked eyeliner.
