Sugar On My Tongue | Smith & Sinclair The For You Selection Box & Watermelon Citrus Edible Fragrance.

A couple of weeks ago, both me and Jamie were very kindly invited down to the Smith & Sinclair pop up store in Trinity Leeds to come and celebrate their launch. Well whilst I was there, I was very kindly given one of their delicious The For You Selection Boxes and a bottle of their Watermelon Citrus Edible Fragrance, and I thought that I would tell you what I thought of them.

Here’s what Smith & Sinclair say about both cool and delicious products.

The Smith & Sinclair The For You Selection Box.

Our Alcoholic Cocktail Gummies are a Cocktail deconstructed into an Adult Gummy Sweet, that will take you on a rollercoaster of flavour. These are Alcoholic and will make you happy.
100% Vegan.

What I chose to go in my Box.

  • 2X Amaretto Sour with Plain Sugar.

The Smith & Sinclair Watermelon Citrus Edible Fragrance.

We’ve created this fruity Watermelon & Citrus Edible Fragrance with Summer in mind! This Edible Fragrance is sure to set your World on Fire.
Created like a traditional Fragrance, for your drink as the ultimate garnish experience.

You can also wear it like a Fragrance and have it licked off too (we don’t make the rules).

Add a playful twist to the way you consume your Drink and create a bit of a ‘wow’ moment when hosting by whipping this out instead of a Lime Wedge. Perfectly paired with a warming Brandy, Espresso Martini, Black Delicate Tea or to add some complexity to a Soft Drink.

The Mandarin Aperol Spritz with Orange Sugar.

I really liked this, as I thought that it tasted really fresh and citrusy but also had an ever so slightly Alcoholic kick to it. I did think that it could have done with tasting a little bit more of Aperol though, as all I could really taste was the Mandarin. I also really liked that it was coated in Orange Sugar, as I thought that it added a really nice Citrusy aftertaste to the entire Gummy.

The Amaretto Sour with Plain Sugar.

I absolutely loved this, as Amaretto is one of my favourite Drinks. But I did think that it could have done with tasting a little bit sweeter and that it could have done with being coated in a flavoured Sugar like the rest of the Gummies that I chose though

The Pineapple Bellini with Pineapple Sugar.

I definitely think that this had to be one of my favourites of the Gummies that I chose, as I thought that it tasted really fruity and sweet but also had an ever so slightly bitter aftertaste to it. I also really liked that it was coated in Pineapple Sugar, as I thought that it added a little bit more of a really sweet and fruity taste to the entire Gummie.

The Mocha Espresso Martini with Coffee Sugar.

I was a little apprehensive about this one, as i’m not really a massive fan of Coffee. But after I had bitten into it, I strangely rather liked it, as I thought that it tasted really smokey and bitter. I did think that it could have done with tasting a little bit more of Coffee though, as all I could really taste was the Mocha. I also really liked that it was coated in Coffee Sugar, as I thought that it added a really nice bitter aftertaste to the entire Gummie that brought out more of the bitter Coffee notes.

The Passion Fruit Mojito with Passion Fruit Sugar.

I really liked this, as even though a Passion Fruit Mojito is one of my favourite Drinks, I was a little worried that turning it into a Gummy would mean that it would lose some of it’s delicious sweet and fruity flavour. But luckily it didn’t, as it tasted really sweet and fruity yet ever so slightly floral and also had a little bit of a kick to it. I also really liked that it was coated in Passion Fruit Sugar, as I thought that it added an extra little bit of sweet and fruity yet ever so slightly floral taste to the entire Gummie.

The Cherry & Hibiscus Bramble with Cherry Sugar.

I really liked this, as even though I was expecting it to taste really sweet and fruity, I thought that it tasted really sour yet ever so slightly floral. I did think that it could have done with tasting a little bit more of Cherry though, as all I could really taste was the Hibiscus. I also really liked that it was coated in Cherry Sugar, as I thought that it added an extra bit of sourness to the entire Gummie.

It’s scent.

I really liked it’s scent, as even though it contained Vodka, Passion Fruit Liqueur, Watermelon flavouring, and Passion Fruit flavouring, I thought that it had a sweet and watery yet ever so slightly citrusy Watermelon scent to it that kind of reminded me of drinking Watermelon Mojitos on a warm Summers’ Night.

It’s taste.

I really liked it’s taste, as even though eating a Fragrance sounded really weird, I thought that it had a delicious sweet and watery yet ever so slightly floral taste to it that kind of reminded me of Watermelon Juice blended with Lime Cordial.

It’s longevity.

I was actually really disappointed with how long it lasted on my Skin, as even though it was technically a Fragrance, I couldn’t really smell it after about half an hour of me spraying it.

It’s packaging.

I really liked it’s packaging, as this came in a massive rectangular Glass Bottle with a Silver metallic Lid that looked beautiful sat on my Beauty Shelves.

My overall thoughts.

Overall I would have to rate the Smith & Sinclair The For You Selection Box a nine out of ten, and the Smith & Sinclair Edible Fragrance a seven out of ten. I absolutely loved the Smith & Sinclair The For You Selection Box, as I really liked the taste of the ones that I chose, and the idea that a Cocktail could be turned into a Gummie, but I just wish that they were more flavours to choose from. I absolutely loved the Smith & Sinclair Watermelon Citrus Edible Fragrance, as I really liked it’s gorgeous fresh and fruity scent, it’s delicious taste, and it’s packaging, but I just thought that it worked better as a garnish to a Drink rather than a Fragrance.

If you would like to check out either one of these delicious products for yourselves, then you can either pop into your local Smith & Sinclair store, or you can find them online here.
I was very kindly given a Smith & Sinclair The For You Selection Box and a bottle of the Smith & Sinclair Watermelon Citrus Edible Fragrance to review, but all thoughts, opinions, and general ramblings are my own.
