Remember when you were little and opening a new doll the first thing that hits you is that gorgeous sweet, plastic smell? When I was little, that smell was so glamorously exotic and something that I only got to have a sniff at at Christmas or birthdays. I wasn’t much of a Barbie fan – I had Pippa dolls for a while but sent them on a ‘cruise’ down a stream at the back of our house and never actually saw them again..oops. I like to think that maybe they reached America and are now sipping Pina Coladas near some bleached out beach living a high life for dolls.
So, Hypnose have managed to encapsulate that dolls head/nylon hair smell in their latest candle, Art Plastique. Kind of a grown up version of a new dolly but without the fiddle of having to choose it an outfit.

Hmm the question is, do you actually want to smell like a plastic doll???
“new dolls at Christmas” has long been an olfactory reference point for me but I have never met anyone else who knew what I was talking about, how fab that you do! That said am not sure I’d want my house to smell of doll these days!
haha thats wicked! I remember that smell so well in fact i remember the taste coz i used to bite my barbies feet???? how weird is that!!?!! in the end my mum used to get me boot sale barbies so i could chop their hair and do as i pleased “/
Bizarre Barbie cannibalism aside I am intrigued to sample this xxx
I love that smell too but a intresting choice for your home:)
I found this by searching “new doll hair smell”. While I would appreciate having a candle to sniff so I could relive the Christmas morning intoxication, what I am actually looking for is something I could spray (or wash) into my own hair that would make it smell that way. Haven’t found it yet, but I’ll keep looking. Cool blog you got here!
