Blue Pumpkin Floss 8/13/10-11/23/10

Oh Fall, thy name is Blue Pumpkin Floss. :joy:
This is one beautiful blend. It carries the spiciness associated with pumpkin, but also the sweetness of it along with the blackberries, which is a very nice pairing.
For me its hard to describe, except to my nose, this is the perfect Fall scent. Perfect! And to think I was worried that I wasnt going to like it based on the reviews. Silly me!
Great throw and lasts long. :wub2:

*a little while later*
Aha! There's that hint of blackberry. This is a very delicious scent.

Dry down: Red Hots layered on top of Gingerbread Poppet.
Dry: Gingerbread Poppet plus an earthy pumpkin smell. I still smell a little bit of a sweet juice.

Sadness. While I certainly don't mind pumpkin, I was hoping that this would be more special. but it did just arrive, so I'll retest in a few days and see.

It gets off to a good start on my skin and keeps smelling like pumpkin without turning to buttered candle death. A couple of minutes in, it makes a move toward getting buttery, but as soon as that happens, the pumpkin fades almost completely! WTF.
All I smell after it dries is spices: cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg?, maybe a couple of others. I get a hint of blackberry syrup every now and then, but not enough to grab hold of, and the in-your-face pumpkin never returns, although I guess it is the reason the spices seem to have a creamy base.
What a strange scent experience. It's definitely autumnal in the end -- these are fall baking spices, after all -- but nothing like what I expected.

Okay. Blue Pumpkin Floss starts out very spicy pumpkin, but not in a sexy, cinnamon way. I don't really know what it is. It takes a good hour before it finally settles into what it's supposed to be. I'm not even fully sure how to describe it on drydown. It's softer and sweeter, but if I didn't know there was berry in it, I wouldn't think there was.
I suppose it's a little candy flossy (not that I'd ever eat the stuff), but it's not at all like Midway. The final drydown is very subtle, which is nice in an intimate setting. It reminds me of a quality in Samhain where you forget you're wearing it, and then suddenly wonder where that nice smell is coming from. Overall, I'm 50/50 on this. I don't love it, but I don't dislike it. Maybe I'll hang onto it for a while to see what happens when it ages.

at first, on my skin, it's a buttery slightly spiced pumpkin filled with a thousand berries. but then something bizarre happens and it morphs into that one particular air freshener scent. :huh?:
(which is an okay scent, but i don't want to wear it as perfume)

Wet: Not like cinnamon red hots to me, but definitely spicy with a bit of a sweet pumpkin edge to it
Drydown: Love it. Love it. Love it. Slathered a good portion of my imp on just now. Buttery, sugared and spiced pumpkin. Really no blackberry to report, but if it does show up I won't mind. We have a good history.
Overall: This is a bottle buy. I just hope my budget can handle it!

Thank goodness I ordered a sniffie first - now I can sell my bottle unused. (I shouldn't buy bottles unsniffed! Lol!)

I put it on my skin, all ready to hate it. But you know what? I love this one! Completely unexpected :evol: from nowhere! At first it's buttery-pumpkiny-sugary, then as it dries it goes through a brief stage where it smells of red hots before hitting buttery blackberry spun sugar with a hint of pumpkiny spice in the background. Damn. I may need a whole bottle of this.
