My review from the forum...

::sob sob::

I got my imp of Squirting Cucumber today and it was the first thing I tried on, because I love the way cucumbers smell, and I'd read so many wonderful reviews on here.

I didn't get any of the good cucumber scent. At all.

On me, it started off as wet grass, but not good healthy just cut wet grass. This is the stuff that's sat up next to the house and gone through a few rains. Nasty, slimy wet grass.

No cucumber, even now after an hour. I'm smelling a little weird floral in there, but I can't get a grip on it to figure out exactly what it is. Not nice, though. fear.gif

I really wanted this to work. I'm going to wait a week or so and see if it's maybe my body that's messing this up. If not, it's into the swap pile for it.

Sometimes it can be body chemistry, but sometimes it can also be that the oils need time to ... relax? I don't know how to explain it. I just know that sometimes just letting the oil sit a bit and get familiar with itself so it's not so raw helps worlds.
Oh, I didn't think of that. I also didn't think that they've been riding around in Texas head (mid 90s today - cool front from the hurricane) and may be in need of cooling down.

Now, dumb question, but will it hurt to put these in a baggie in the fridge?
It shouldn't. Cool and dark is better than hot and sunny. Heat and sun can degrade the oils. Cool temps preserve them. I say go for it.
