Rosy Maple Metamorphosis: The Moths (5/26/10-8/26/10)
Posted 28 May 2010 - 07:59 PM
This was really sweet and nice. When I was first sniffing it...... I was thinking to myself.....what does this remind me of? After a bit, it hit me, this kept reminding me of the honeyed peach note in Josie. Even though there isn't honey or peach in it. It has this really ripe fruit note that stayed strong for a long while. Definitely a keeper.

Getting lots of sweet pea and cotton candy, it settles into a slightly creamy, acai berry (reminds me of Australian Copperhead!), tart, sweet pea cotton candy scent, with a hint of lemon blossom in the background. I find it surprisingly complex. It takes me back a little to my younger years when I used to wear the B&BW Sweet Pea line. Just lovely!

Rather than smelling like a particular type of candy, Rosy Maple reminds me of walking into a candy shop. Sugared vanilla, with wafts of fruity sweetness coming from all directions. It's juicy! I could smell the sweet pea in the bottle but it's retreated now.
As it dries the fruits fade somewhat, leaving sugary vanilla. This is a really cheerful blend!

Then, I dunno what happens, but I can tell you that Rosy Maple? She's maple honey. The blend goes sugary syrup. Thick and yeah...mapley. The lighter elements disappear on me.

I knew I would...not only because of the notes, but also because I have a particular fondness for these moths.
This is the perfect representation of them...it actually *smells* yellow and pink. Like pink lemonade. Tart, sweet and juicy and fabulous for summer. It's very, very strongly sweet and tart at first (which is awesome), and then the candy floss starts to peek out and soften things up again.
A definite keeper, and backup bottles will be needed. ASAP.

eta: Okay, I'm trying again, and this time I'm not getting candle (yay!), but I am getting Bath & Body Works Sweet Pea (boo!). Maybe I should put this away and try it again in a few weeks.

For people who like the brighter, sweeter scents, this is a must have.

And I get a Candy Phoenix vibe from this too, although it's lighter (Candy Phoenix on me will clear a room!) and not as in-your-face. Nice!

I agree with the comparison to Candy Phoenix, this is a very bright pink sugar blend.
It's almost sparkly, and it reminds me a little of Treat #1's "crushed hard candies" -- it sort of has a crystalline edge to it. The color that strikes me here is a vivid purplish pink, tart candy. If you like candied scents, definitely give this one a try! Although Treat #1 is my go-to when I want to smell like hard candy, this is a nice scent in that family if that's what you're into.

Wet: The sweet pea shoves its way to the front, perching atop the tart berries and the lemon blossom.
Drydown: Sweet pea heavy, other sweet things lurking behind. I close my eyes and I see clouds of pink trimmed with lace. Very sweet, very feminine.

Immediately after application: Sugary with a hint of lemon and a bit of the florals and some creaminess from the vanilla. Gorgeous.
Warming up: Sugary vanilla with a hint of florals. The lemon made a run for it. I was a little afraid I'd amp the rose to crazy rose territory as I so often do with rose but so far it's stayed a lovely background note adding depth to the vanilla-candyfloss. I LOVE THIS BLEND.
Fading: Sugary vanilla!
Faded: Still sugary vanilla wonderfulness
Overall: This blend is LOVE for me. I will absolutely be buying a bottle!

When it's fresh on my skin it's very sugary with hints of the acai berry and huckleberry.
Dried down it's mostly candyfloss and sweet pea and it smells wonderful!!
I'm glad this smells so awesome, because the moth is so cute! Definitely a candidate for a bottle-purchase.

Wet- the grapefruit goes away as soon as it touched my skin. This one was a definite morpher. At first, it totally disappears. Then, pure sweet pea. About a half an hour later, the berries come out. It smells like sweet pea and raspberry!
After about an hour and a half, it is all sugar! *kind of* like PPF, but not as "pink". A mix of the candyfloss and sugar, but I never really got rose at all. Definitely a mix of the berries, and the sugars. Maybe the berries with the lemon led me to smell grapefruit.
This one stays close to the skin for sure, but it is soooooo gooooooood!!!!!!

From the bottle I get the acai's immediate fruitiness, the sweet pea and the creaminess from the vanilla. From the skin test, more of the vanilla comes out and a sugary floral note. When dried, this is a very sweet and girly scent.
