Rich hippie is a cool little company that specializes in organic cosmetica perfumes. Bohemian wedding is one of their popular roll-on style of organic perfumes. They have many other tantalizing sounding scents and I have been anxious to try them.
I recently decided to treat myself to a small bottle of this perfume. Since there is nowhere near to try on this particular brand of perfume I decided to purchase on-line. The reviews suggested it was earthy and divinely scrumptious. Personally I was envisioning either something spicy and earthy or a nag champa type scent. The reviews claimed that it was an earthy exotic scent with spicy undertones. Patchouli was definitely expected in my mind.
Imagine my surprise when the scent turned out to be a dud! It actually reminds me of the smell of the bathhouses where I grew up in Lake Ontario. Which is not a compliment. The scent smells like some kind of cleaner, not perfume. It is definitely worth the price I paid ($45 for a teeny tiny 1/8 oz. bottle). The scent is not long-lasting at all and seemed to be completely dissipated within 15 minutes! The scent is not anything I would describe as “bohemian”! I am really disappointed in this scent! Though the company Rich Hippie must have good marketing because I still want to try some of the other scents! Or maybe I am just a sucker for trying new fragrances. I really wanted to like this one, but I definitely do not and I don’t recommend anyone waste their money on it either. It really was that bad! I would definitely try to find somewhere to test this product before purchasing as it may smell differently on yourself.
The ingredients of his product are listed as; extracts from organic and wildcrafted flowers, organic alcohol. The company is based out of Los Angeles, California and their website is www.rich-hippie.com
I must say I find it a hoot that there is even such a thing as “organic alcohol”. I really think I have been had by slick marketing. Or maybe I am just the victim of a bad batch? I do know that organic products are usually a bit less stable on the shelves due to the lack of preservatives and other nasty ingredients.
I also do wonder what kind of organic flowers, etc. were used to make this scent. I am very leary of companies that don’t disclose ingredients on their products. Especially beauty products that are touted as organic! What’s the big secret?
This perfume can be purchase all over the Internet from $40 for a small bottle to over $100 for the larger size. I really don’t recommend it for the reasons stated above, It is way overpriced and doesn’t even smell nice! I am a bit bummed with this purchase.
I purchased my bottle through a private seller via amazon.com and even though I received exceptional customer service I am entertaining the thought of returning this perfume if I am able. It really is that bad! I have also learned the lesson that you really need to try on perfume before purchasing it. Though this has been my first bad experience with an on-line perfume purchase. Maybe I have just gotten lucky in the past. I will definitely make sure from now on to purchase from a retailer that offers a money-back guarantee on their items as I’d hate to think I am out $45 and left with a bottle of perfume that I won’t use!
