it's a sweet and spicy pumpkin and it's lovely. Oh! as it dries down (or the longer you sniff) I start to get the marshmallow! You can even smell the powdery stuff on it..
How does Beth DO that?
It's kinda faint after it dries but I'd expect that from a marshmallow scent. Love it.
I'm going to wear this with the Candy Corn Coated Candy Apple and Blue Pumpkin Floss as a trifecta of fall sweetness!

After it dries down, the spice settles a bit and the marshmallow starts to come out, adding a slightly creamy undertone. This scent isn't at all what I expected, but I'm really quite happy with the spicy surprise.

wet: creamy, sweet cinnamon. this isn't buttery pumpkin, it's very understated. also, i am very sensitive to cinnamon and this does not burn my skin at all.
dry: i wish there was more pumpkin and/or marshmallow. i get neither. what i do get is a nice creamy spice scent that will be wonderful for layering.

Drying: The raw pumpkin and marshmellow comes out. The raw squashy pumpkin is not really my thing.
Dry: It is trying to be pumpkin pie, but something is off.
Overall: I love the marshmellow and spice. The pumpkin doesn't quite smell like pie, but is more raw. I'm not a fan of the note.
ETA: I just figured it out! It smells like sweet potatoes with marshmellows on top! Ok, I like this now

It's like Marshmallow Poof with mild baked pumpkin. This could have turned into a bakery gone wrong, and I really don't enjoy cinnamon/nutmeg/spice rack type of foody scents. Or foody scents in particular for that matter. (I seriously sound like such a complainer in this review!) But the spices aren't overly strong at all. I can't really make out what they are, but to me it's a cinnamon/nutmeg mixture. I can't make out any clove, which I would have suspected to make an appearance in a pumpkin-spice blend. It's mostly the vanilla sweetness of the marshmallow with hints of understated spice. It's very autumnal.
It becomes kind of musky during the drydown. Like brown musk with a hint of dry sweetness. Nothing like the sugary, poofy marshmallow vanilla it was initially. But it still smells good, just in an entirely different way. It wears pretty well too in the same manner that a lot of thicker, vanilla, gourmand scents do on me.
I know that I wouldn't wear this often, but I find it so comforting and delicious. I think I want my own bottle. And now I want to try other pumpkin scents to see if this one was an anomaly, or if maybe other pumpkin notes out there could be compatible with my finicky chemistry.

So yes - Marshmallow Pumpkin is a lovely pumpkin blend, and perfect as a Weenie. Pumpkin lovers should really enjoy this one

On the dry down this softened to a creamy spicy note, like the spices you would use in a pumpkin pie. It ended a little more cinnamon and clove like to my nose, with the softness of the marshmallow/creamy notes.
I got this with Candy Corn Coated Apple as well and think I want to layer the two together for a scent that will really mean the smell of fall to me!

Medium throw, not that long lasting (but they almost never are for me.)

No pumpkin, no marshmallow....nothing sweet at all.
I do like it.
It's just not what I expected with a name like Marshmallow Pumpkin.
