The hipsters say old is new again, and so does Maryland’s Rosebud Perfume Company. It doesn’t make perfume, but it does sell vintage-looking, sweet-smelling products to a lot of chain stores, always a big deal for a small company.
I picked the berry-tinted, slightly musky Brambleberry Rose lip balm out of the lineup, which also included a legitimately chocolatey Mocha Rose lip balm and another one called Smith’s Rosebud Salve. It is an original take on rose. It can also double as lotion for dry patches of skin.
It’s thick, works well, and you won’t get tired of the scent. Plus the amount of balm you get justifies the $7.00 price tag. The old-fashioned container gimmick, surprisingly, doesn’t get old either.
