Purplecat Creatives Body Butter

You might recall me mentioning Purplecat Creatives in my recent 5 Etsy Indie Fragrance Houses You Simply Must Try for Yourself post. I admit I have a lot of indie fragrance spots I like to purchase from but Purplecat Creatives is a fond favorite of mine!

I decided to indulge in some of Purplecat Creative Body Butter recently. I wasn’t thinking of layering with these because her fragrances are already very strong all their own. But I thought I’d skip the fragrance on Summer days and rely on her body butters for a moisture as well as a lighter layer of fragrance instead. I hadn’t yet tried anything else from her shop aside from her perfumes so this was a good excuse to spoil myself as she has a few limited edition fragrances like Caramel Pretzel that I wanted to try.

I really, really love this shop and I really, really wish she’d do more than perfume and bath and body. Tarts would me amazing! But I’ll take what I get because there are some great, unique fragrances here.

One of my favorites, Raven’s Blend, which is this absolute decadent blend of Fresh brewed coffee with dark chocolate, warm caramel, hazelnuts, almonds and cream. If you’re at all familiar with Tod’s blends from Alternative Breeding/Universal Voodoo you’ll recognize this fragrance as it smells very much like Honey Roast. Over ten years ago, Tod made me a soap in the Honey Roast fragrance and I swooned upon getting as his specialty is wax and wax only so it was a special treat to receive a bath and body gift from him in one of my favorite blends. Last year, I discovered Raven’s Blend and I was overjoyed to finally have my favorite scent in a perfume!

Another one of my favorites here is Firecracker which is a a blend mangoes with rose and neroli blossom and red pepper and cinnamon. This smells like Wrigley’s Spearmint Gum and Big Red Gum had a baby. It’s minty yet has a red hot sizzling cinnamon note! It’s gorgeous! The name is fitting to say the least.

I picked up several different scents in your whipped body butter including some of her new, limited edition seasonal fragrances like Chocolate Chip Mint and Rum Raisin. The Body Butter has a thick, whipped creamy consistency that takes a little work to massage into skin but once absorb leave skin soft and smooth but not sticky or tacky. As I mentioned above I purchased them in the hopes they’d be fragranced enough to work as a light way to perfume my skin on a warmer Summer day and they do in fact do that. Raven’s Blend was particularly strong as well Firecracker! These both left my skin with a lovely, lingering fragrance. Of course, you have to get up close and personal to smell them on my body but personally I get a nice little sniff of them throughout the day!

I also grabbed a few of her sample size fragrances in scents I haven’t tried. This is a great way to try out her perfumes without splurging on the full size!

I’m very pleased with my purchase! I got three larger sizes and six medium ones plus she included a slew of samples with my order!

If you’re a fan of unique fragrance I’d highly recommend indulging!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I just checked out the etsy shop and am intrigued by the soap whips as well. I was in love with a whipped soap from another etsy seller, but they went out of business and I haven’t been able to find a similar quality product. Have you tried Purplecat’s soap whips? if so, what do you think of them?

    • Isabella Muse

      I have not! That will have to be my next pick up 🙂

    Raven’s Blend sounds like it’s in the same vein as HoG’s Vice. If you’ve tried this one can you let me know how the 2 compare? The notes for Vice are: Steam billows rolling off a vessel of fresh made Turkish coffee, marshmallow goo tainted by graham cracker crumbs, toasted hazelnuts and blanketed in black chocolate

    • Isabella Muse

      I’m not sure what HoG is so can’t compare. Sorry 🙁

        • Isabella Muse

          oh! Sorry! I haven’t tried Vice from Haus of Gloi! Sorry! I’ve been meaning too but never got around too it!

    Muse, you are the best ! I know sometimes you don’t know about it but most of your recommendations (shops, e-stores,etc) do ship to Canada !
    Thank you for showing us some beautiful finds that I wouldn’t know about if it wasn’t for your blog !

    • Isabella Muse

    I am a BIG fan of these kinds of body butters. I am going to check them out right now. Thank you for reviewing these products. They sound heavenly.

    This is an old post of yours but I just wanted to say how much I agree with you for this Etsy shop. Everything I try by her, I’m like oh wow, this is my new favorite. And then I open another jar and I’m thinking Oh no, THIS is my new favorite. I have not tried anything yet scent or product by her that I have not LOVED. The body butter is amazing, it doesn’t “disappear” after a few hours. It really soaks in and leaves you very moisturized for quite a while. And all the scents layer well together whether using a soap whip (and those are amazing also) and then a body butter and then one of her solid perfumes. Ravens Blend is amazing as well as Nightingale and then Fire Topaz or Bourbon Ripple. They are all amazing. Thank you for posting about this Etsy shop in your blog. I would never have found her otherwise and I LOVE HER!!!

      YAY! I’m so glad to hear you’re loving her! The only compliant I have is we NEED MORE scents haha! I have tried everything she has so I’m always thirsty for her latest creation ;-D
