OMG. I have been mixing my own blends for years, but never quite 'nailed' the scents that are in this kit!!! The Pumpkin Spice Latte blend has been diffusing in our house NONSTOP since we got this set, and I'm so excited to start using the others (the Peppermint Mocha smells exactly like a delicious Andes Mint and the Eggnog smells sooooo lovely but not overpowering sweetness). I am SO excited to have my house smelling like the holidays for my family...there is seriously nothing better than your house smelling festive and cozy. IN LOVE WITH THIS KIT!!!!
I received the Fall Holiday Latte Kit in exchange for an honest review due to recently becoming an exclusive affiliate which was truly a pleasant surprise. I got my kit Saturday and after having a day with the family, I am here to write this review, which will be honest and a true first impression. I have never smelled any of the three oils sent to me so I honestly do not know what to expect.
This kit contains 3 different scents 5ml each- Pumpkin Spice Latte, Peppermint Mocha, and Eggnog Latte. I am very excited to sniff!
I open Pumpkin Spice Latte, and it does truly smell like fresh pumpkin pie. It is sweet, cinnamon comes through, and it's very natural, not artificial. It is not at all like those scented pumpkin spice air fresheners you see this time of year. I can see this being a lovely scent to diffuse and plan on doing so once I finish this and clean out the diffuser ( I was previously diffusing their Frankincense).
Next is Peppermint Mocha and I am in love with this one even more than the first. Their original peppermint is very intense but clean but the additional layer of the mocha scent is reminding me of Girl Scout Cookies. What a lovely scent to add to homemade soap, maybe even my homemade cleaning products. If I did not know this was an essential oil I would think this is a coffee flavoring syrup, and I mean that in the best way possible- this is truly a dead ringer for a coffee drink.
Eggnog Latte smells somewhat similar to pumpkin at first whiff. I then compare the two and begin to detect there is in fact some differences though both seem to have a cinnamon and/or clove scent. I can see the Eggnog scent being good for scenting pine cones for the holidays, in a table centerpiece.
Rocky Mountain included a card that suggests using 5-10 drops in one of their diffusers.
Overall my first impression is I am highly impressed and this kit far exceeded my expectations. I was concerned it would smell too much like a cheap candle set at a discount store in the Christmas section but am just floored at how they pulled off these scents using only pure therapeutic grade essential oils. Rocky Mountain has really won me over with this collection.
I like these for the most part - nice smells for someone who loves the sweets part of the holidays rather than the tree smells. However, the gunk build up in the diffuser is pretty annoying to clean out. As long as you don't mind the extra step of scrubbing out the diffuser after each use, it's worth it.
I love the Pumpkin Spice Latte and the smell of the Peppermint Mocha, but that one left a nasty, sticky brown residue in my diffusers. I used it a few times, then tossed it and now I need to clean my diffusers to get the yuck out. Smell is great. Mess, not so much.
I was highly disappointed with this set. I read such great reviews so decided to splurge on it. I honestly barely smell anything when discussing them…all 3. I even tried them in all 3 of my diffusers to ensure the diffusers were working correctly. I basically have to use 10-12 drops, about 30 cc of water and stand close to the diffuser to smell anything plus the already weak sent, fades quick. Though still requiring several drops…I prefer the other, cheapest, Holiday set I purchased. I feel that this set was a huge waste of money.
Thank you for your feedback. We're sorry to hear that you're unhappy with the oils in this kit. We do not use fillers, synthetics, or fragrance enhancers; the oils will remain true to their natural aroma. We generally recommend 5-10 drops of E.O. per 100 ml of water when diffusing. Feel free to play with it and find what works best for you. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out. Thanks!-RMO Team

Seriously lacking fragrance power
I have enjoyed many other RMOs but this set was seriously disappointing. They lack sustaining fragrance. The Eggnog Latte stinks. They all permanently stained my diffuser.
Thank you for your review! We recommend cleaning diffusers after every use of these oils, as the coffee color has a tendency to stain. We also have cleansing tablets that work well with this issue. Thanks! -RMO Team
