Experience: Retro Creams and Perfumes - etsy

Blue Bubblegum Crush
Retro Creams and Perfumes

I haven't done one of these posts in a while but having ordered from Retro Creams and Perfumes twice now I think now is a perfect time to do so. Bare in mind I have no links or affiliations with the company / brand.

The shop is based in Michigan, United States and I in England. I ordered three of the roll on perfumes and they arrived in eight days which I think is amazing. I am used to waiting three to four weeks for things to arrive from the US.

As I say I ordered three of the roll on perfumes, these are perfect for your handbag because when you are out and about sometimes it is not appropriate to be spraying a scent. Very discreet. There is 15ml in each roll on and they do go a long way. 

Why would I want do buy from Retro Creams and Perfumes?
The bottles are recyclable, fresh, natural, vegan and pack a good scent punch. 
Contains no parabens or phthalates or any skin harming ingredients.
The base is grapeseed oil mixed with the fragrance oil, but doesn't leave a greasy residue.
Handmade fragrences, Jasmina has been making these since 2008.

Honey I Shrunk the Kids
The particular scents I ordered are relatively unique, I opted for ones made from the scents of Lush products. For example you like a bath ballistic and want a perfume of that scent, well once a year Lush do a  fragrance party where they make around five different spray perfumes, you can only order on that particular day and they cost between £20 and £30 which isn't too bad. But from year to year you can't guarantee a particular scent is made. In the past I have ordered a couple of these and while they are amazing you can't be sure your favorite scent is made in to a spray. Even if you aren't in to Lush and their scents they do some other amazing scents, based around other fragrances.

So the scents which I ordered were Blindfolded, Blue Bubblegum Crush and Honey I Shrunk the Kids. All of these smell spot on to what they are supposed to. You roll on the scent to your pulse points, wrists and behind ears. 

Blindfolded - Sex Bomb Ballistic - "Packed with with seduction!  Jasmine and ylang ylang. Sultry notes of white flowers mingled with the every-present violet note ending on a warm muskiness".

Blue Bubblegum Crush - Candy Fluff Dusting Powder  - "Sweet, sticky good scent! Sweet as a pink, candy floss fairy and leaves you feeling just as pretty without the calories Deliciously sinful".

Honey I Shrunk the Kids - Honey I Washed the Kids Soap / Shower Gel - "Sweet and gentle, an instant fix of honey and toffee. Top Notes: Citrus, honey floral bouquet Middle Notes: peach, apple, toffee Bottom Notes: woody, musky"

Overall I would really recommend Jasmina and Retro Creams and Perfumes, the scents are amazing and the shipping times really fabulous. For something a little different, discreet and natural I will be purchasing again. 



  1. They sound lovely, a really unique product! I've only recently started ordering from Etsy, it's like a treasure cave!

  2. Ooh, these look very interesting - I much prefer roll ons to spray perfumes. I might have to have a little look!

    1. They are, especially if you have a special fragrance in mind.
