Tokyo Milk: Let Them Eat Cake & Bon Bons Review

If you easily fall for pretty packaging, lock your purses and ice your credit cards. HaHaHa I'm about to introduce you to a brand called Tokyo Milk. Tokyo Milk is one of FOUR brands or "worlds" (Lollia, Tokyo Milk, Love and Toast, Library of Flowers) created by Margot Elena. I'm familiar with Lollia, because my favorite perfume (and I am NOT a perfume girl) is WISH by Lollia (here me rave about it HERE). Well, I decided to delve into the glorious "world" of Tokyo Milk. Tokyo Milk is both sweet & dark (the dark side has a femme fatale and fate & fortune section...mysterious huh!?! every "sweet" girl has a "dark" side *snicker*). I decided to stay on the sweet side for my first review. So, let's talk frosted & glittery cakes, bon bons, and sweet cream. These are beauty products with a sweet theme.

supersweet(run & buy it) sweet(really good,buy it) bittersweet(ok, issues)not sweet(not good,don't buy this stuff)


The notes for this perfume are sugar cane, coconut milk, vanilla orchid, and white musk. Spray it. Let it set. Then sniff. It's light. It's sweet. It makes you smile. It's not a bakery scent! It's exactly what the notes are above. There's nothing loud or obscene about it. You just smell sweet, feminine and beautiful. I love it. This is a special occasion perfume.

Can we talk about the perfume bottle for a second? Tokyo Milk along with the company's insignia is inscribed into the glass bottle. You can also visually see a beautifully decorated pink iced cake, on a pink cake stand (through the bottle). So gorgeous.

What you'll find with all of Margot Elena's products is her attention to detail. She leaves nothing undone. I love her for it.

It smells like baked vanilla cake! The description is so on point. I can definitely detect the french vanilla and coconut scent. This lip balm contains sunflower seed oil, beeswax, vitamin E, aloe vera and shea butter. My lips stayed moisturized for hours! It's been 5 hours and my lips are still moisturized. HaHaHa The box is exquisite! There's a picture of Marie Antoinette on one panel. Her gown & headpiece sparkles! There's also a cake with glitter, on the front panel.

When you open the box, there's a quote! It says, "Where should one use perfume?" a young woman asked. "Wherever one wants to kissed," I said. - Coco Chanel Well Ooh La La! HaHaHa The little jar of lip balm is really cute. The only thing is you have to make sure your hands are clean or use something to apply it (contamination). No taste. Just scent.

This lotion is encased in a slide-out (matchbook style) box. It displays a gorgeous decorated cake on the front. There's also gold foil in and around the inner box.

It's a fabulous tube of lotion, that has just the right consistency for when it's cold or warm. It will work from season to season. It leaves your hands moisturized and feeling very soft.

The reason I only give it a sweet rating, is because of the scent. It's really light and barely there. The lotion makes your hands feel really good, but there's barely a scent. This lotion is NOT sticky or greasy.

I didn't know hand soaps could be so decadent and moisturizing! HaHaHa When you wash your hands, this soap lathers a LOT. It's creamy. It's rich. It feels really good to your hands. They feel moisturized. You're not grabbing the nearest lotion afterwards. They're that good. The soaps are lightly scented. Sweet lightly sugared & fresh. Full description in link above.

You receive THREE! Each is wrapped in a different wrapper: strawberry shortcake, frosted cupcake w/cherry on top and candy bon bons. The paper they're wrapped in is so cute & hearty! They're fabulous.

All of her products definitely make for awesome gifts. The packaging alone is pure delight. HaHaHa


Wow! I think I love the Sweet Cream lip balm even more than Let Them Eat Cake! HaHaHa It has an even sweeter scent. It contains the same ingredients as Let Them Eat Cake, but it's vanilla bean, spun sugar and carmelized cream.

It comes in a really cute box! The cupcake on it sparkles! Cute iced cupcake with a cherry on top, that's frosted with glitter. This lip balm lasts hours on hours. Again, 5 hours and still going. HaHaHa A real delight. No taste. Just scent. The quote for this one, "is not a kiss the very autograph of love?" - Henry Finck. Fabulous details! No taste. Just scent.

Hope you enjoyed! Have a great Monday!

I really like how the lipbalms have the scent but note the taste - would mean I'd be less tempted to lick it off all day, hehe! :)

I've probably said before here that I'm drawn to gorgeous packaging and you know about my love of cupcakes etc. so just looking at these products has me hooked! The lip balm and the hand cream would be two items I would try. Thanks for introducing us to such cute and original products, Kim. Hope your week goes well!

Awesome reviews Kim. I came across this line a few months ago at a random boutique and the name really caught my attention. I sampled at least 5 scents and loved them. Cant remember which one was my fave though. Good to know the other products are great too.

Adeola Naomi Aderemi said...

Those lip balms are calling my name! When I was younger I had a Lip Smacker (remember those?) that was cake scented...these remind me of it!

alexis said...

Okay, I could barely focus through this review, as it left me craving chocolate. Seriously, I looked over at my husband and asked him to run out and get me a bar (he declined)…. clearly a "super sweet" line!

Alicia Mackin said...

Ah again for me it is the packaging that gets me. I generally do not care for food scented beauty products with the exception of cucumber I love that scent. But these products would make wonderful gifts for those that do.

So cute!


Yes, I love the packaging and attention to detail. Although, I don't normally want to smell like cake, I would try all of these soaps, lol. Beautiful! I may get my sister some of these, she loves this stuff. :) Have a lovely Wednesday Kim.

Dale Janee said...

I definitely fall for pretty packaging easily so I already want to buy these, especially the soaps because I love how they're wrapped and how you say they're super soft. I could see these being such a cute gift idea for girl friends too in a gift basket.


Coco said...

Hello Kim! This is one of the most inviting collections you have reviewed: I'm a huge fan of vanilla, white musk and Shea butter, therefore I'd love to try the perfume! I'm also a lip balm addict - it's getting serious - and these cute tins are delightful! As for the hand lotion, I think it's a bit pricey for a hand lotion :-) tons of hugs dear
