This smells almost like Pumpkin Bread. It's sweet and rich but not overbearing.
Perfect Orange note with a little zing and a hint of balsamic mellow.
For whatever reason, Beth's Mexican and South American blends almost always work on me. This is so perfect.
The spices are JUST right.
Overall, full bodied and very pretty. This is definitely one of my top three Pumpkin blends from the Lab.

After a couple of hours, the spice was overwhelmingly strong & drowned out a lot of the pumpkin & obliterated the sugars.
This may need to age - hopefully the spice calms down

In the bottle & wet it's pumpkin, carmelized OJ, spices, yeast(in a good way), and somthing woody that reminds me a little bit of Krampus & some of the 13's.
Dry, it's pumpkin spice for a while, then the woods warm up, but it always stays spicy & sweet.
Sweet like molassess, rich and deep, not sugary & cloying sweet....
Overall, a keeper, with similarities to some of my favorites....a very typically "me" scent.
Eta: Definitely a "dabber"... killer sillage!

ETA: Also wanted to point out that it has AMAZING longevity! I could smell it throughout the whole day and into the night..but the throw is moderate and not too in your face. Love that!

Wet: Seriously, like a pumpkin liquor!
The dry-down: Mellows out in the dry-down, with the almost butterscotch liquor note fading away in front of the spices. I liked this better when wet (and thus will probably go to the scent locket). Seriously cute vintage or vintage-style label.

Clove makes a subtle appearance in the far background, but this is basically all cinnamon on my skin.

Uhhh.... I totally want some pumpkin pie now. Not for the hungry.

it's a really strong scent- it seems to linger in my nose even after i stopped trying to sniff it.

Wet: Brown sugar comes through and Iím hoping this will be a tasty foodie scent. It reminds me of pumpkin cookies or sugar cookies; fresh and warm from the oven!
Dry: As it dried, and after I peaked at the description, I really am getting maple syrup from this. Once it dried completely, the ginger and the syrup were content to be together, although quietly. Despite being faint, it was lovely and comforting overall. (Iíve got to figure out a way to make these scents stay and be stronger on me!)
My Reaction: I expected something sugary sweet and this is it; although not in a nasty, overly-sugary sort of way. The maple syrup was a nice surprise although it does make me hungry for waffles or pancakes! And I think the hint of nutmeg plays off the other notes very nicely.

Oh, this is nice!
Sweet pumpkin with a liberal amount of cinnamon and ginger.
Similar to Pumpkin Queen and Pumpkin V 2007, both of which were heavy on the ginger as well. But those were too strong for me, while this blend is just right.
A sweet, spicy, foody Halloween dream.
