In the Bottle: Strawberry cake
Wet on Skin: Whoa. Major throw. Warm strawberry baked goods.
While Drying: It is a cake note I recognize from other blends, but the strawberry lightenes it up a bit and makes it wearable. (The cake note is often too heavy on me).
After a Little While: I start to pick up a bit of the sugar note after this dries. The strawberry briefly takes on a candied quality before heading back in the cake direction. Throw is still significant.
Later: Throw- warm strawberry cake. Skin- pink sugar alternating with cake. Oddly, the throw is still going strong, but the scent seems to be fainter when I sniff close to the skin. Eventually, the sugar note seems to disappear completely. Close to the skin, I smell mainly strawberry, but the throw is still cake and strawberries (and the throw is still stronger than the skin scent). Next morning: I still smell strawberries when I sniff my arm. The scent is more strawberry cookies than strawberry cake at this point.
Final Thoughts: I'm usually all about the scents with good throw, but I think I'll need to use a light hand with this one. The throw is _powerful_ and it lasts forever. I'd been wearing it for at least 14 hours before my shower removed the last traces, and I dreamed about baking all night long.
Thinking back on this a day later, Golletes may be a bit too heavy for me, with its oppressive cake-y-ness. I'll have to retest with a very light application and see how that goes. I wish I got more of the pink sugar smell and less of the heavy cake.
Golletes earns a 3.5/5 on my skin.
