Feedback Friday is Maine Woodland Berry

It's Feedback Friday, and you know what that means! (Or maybe you don't know what that means?) Feedback Friday is our way of sharing a fragrance or flavor you might not have tried before by offering a free sample that you can add to your next order. It's also a way for you to share your opinions if you've already tried it (or come back and share once you've received a sample).

This week I've been picking raspberries in my garden. The astonishing thing about this is that it's a full two weeks before I usually start picking. I may even be able to bake a raspberry pie for the Fourth, which is just unheard of.

Anyway, I have berries on the brain, which is why I decided Maine Woodland Berry would be the perfect flavor and fragrance to share this week. As a kid growing up in Maine, I took lots of walks in the woods, and I definitely remember picking berries. In my memory, every prickle-y bramble-y patch was heavy with fruit. I'm sure this wasn't really the case (and I definitely don't recommend that kids pick berries without an adult handy to make sure they're safe to eat), but I know that at least some of these walks were concluded with sweet fruit and juice-stained fingers.

Our Maine Woodland Berry fragrance reminds me of those walks. It's not overly sweet, but more like an earthy blend of wild berries, oak, and moss. As with many of our fragrances, we have a "matching" lip balm flavor; Maine Woodland Berry lip balm is a blend of raspberry and Maine wild blueberry flavors.

Maine Woodland Berry is available in:
hand creams
lotions
bath gel (with pink jojobas for gentle exfoliation)
sugar scrub (also with pink jojobas)
bath salts
gift sets
lip balm

The Feedback Friday sample is your choice of a 1 ounce bottle of lotion or a lip balm tube of Maine Woodland Berry. If you've already tried this flavor or fragrance, please feel free to share your comments below. If you haven't, please consider adding one to your next order and coming back to let us know what you think. (Just for clarification, the only thing you pay for with a sample is the shipping...so when I say "add one to your next order" that's just because I assume that customers won't want to pay for shipping to receive just the sample. But you know what they say about people who assume! So just know that you are welcome to add the sample with or without additional items.)

  12. It is nice to find some new products reviewed in this blog that I have not tried before. It is always safer and better to buy something that someone else has tried or has written some reviews about it. Thank you for that. Maine Woodland Berry sounds great to me. The fragrance must be amazing.

  23. This was the first fragrance I ordered from you and I love it. The name reminded me of going to my parents camp in Rangeley. I'll be ordering more when I run out.

  25. I have tried several flavors and Maine Woodland Berry is my favorite! Anything with a berry scent or flavor is heavenly. The Maine Woodland Berry reminds me of lightly scented fresh berries.
