Baobab oil

Does anyone know how this is supposed to smell?

I received this all the way back in July from a Memebox, but it has been stuck in the back of my cupboard ever since. I suspected it is baobab “oil” like how Moroccan Oil products are Argan “oil”. ( = Cones, cones, more cones and they accidentally spilled a drop of argan oil in there somewhere)

But this thing just smells odd. Like alcohol to be honest.
I wish I could find an ingredient list somewhere, but it has proven impossible.
Yea, that’s the problem with ordering a product with an ingredient list I can’t read.

I think the idea of a baobab oil is super cool though. I mean have you seen what the trees look like?? 
It’s like it came from another planet!

Anyways. Can anyone tell me anything about this product?

Even the tiniest little thing would be helpful! 


  1. Sorry, I don't know about the product, but I want to say I really enjoy your blog. It's one of my designated 'happy places' I visit on the net. Also your new hair color is stunning!

  2. Thank you for your kind words! That made me smile :)

  3. Haven't smelled it myself, but a friend has it and hers' is supposed to be 100% organic baobab oil and (according to her) smells a bit like nuts and slightly earth-y. It's golden in color and looked somewhat darker than yours when I saw it, but that could be your bottle.

    Just to add: Your haircolor is so beautiful and very even! I really hope you write a bit more about it, like, does it fade, would you do it again, etc.

    1. Damn. That definitely doesn't sound like this one! It's a very pale yellow colour (Bottle is clear) and it has a sharp alcoholic kind of "green apples" smell to it. I guess that confirms that it's definitely not a pure oil. Too bad!
      Aw, thank you :) And I will be happy to write more about henna soon. I have a very busy week ahead of me, so my blog posts for the next week or so are queued up. But after that I will get right on it :) Is there something specific you would like me to cover?
