After having used each of the Lotus Wei scents at least a couple of times, I think I’m ready to give you my opinion of each!

Lotus Wei Joy Juice

This one definitely lives up to its name; I feel so happy when I’m wearing it! The best part? After sitting on my skin for about 20 minutes, the initially fruity scent changes into something richer, more floral, and somehow even more fantastic. I didn’t even realize that the awesomeness I was smelling was actually me the first time it happened. I sniff my wrists constantly when I’m wearing Joy Juice.

Lotus Wei Infinite Love

Sweeter scents tend to leave me feeling nauseated, but this gem is an exception to that rule. Infinite Love makes me feel pretty, warm and maybe even a little flirty. I like to put a few drops in my palms and run my fingers through my hair before leaving the house. That way I’m greeted with the scent whenever I turn my head throughout the day, and so is anyone sitting next to me.

Lotus Wei Quiet Mind / Lotus Wei Inner Peace

Maybe it’s the geranium, but I have a hard time distinguishing between these two scents. That isn’t necessarily a bad thing, though, since I love them both. Of the two, Quiet Mind might be my favorite since it lacks a spiciness I’ve noticed in Inner Peace that I don’t always love. They’re both perfect before bed, obviously, and I truly feel like my sleep is enhanced by either. I’m a get-up-and-pee-several-times-throughout-the-night kinda girl, and I have much less trouble getting back to sleep if I use a few drops of of of these guys after each bathroom trip.

Lotus Wei Pure Energy / Lotus Wei Inspired Action

I grouped these two together not because the scents are all that similar, but because I use one or both religiously before and during my 2.5-hour night class. They definitely help with my almost consistent lack of focus, and that’s an accomplishment I never thought possible. Since I’m a sucker for anything involving grapefruit or black pepper, I prefer the scent of Pure Energy. Inspired Action might be my least favorite of all the scents, but I can’t deny its ability to make nearly three hours of Ancient and Medieval Philosophy much more bearable.
