Oh no. I don't want to be first on this one, because so far it doesn't really work on my skin. http://www.bpal.org/...R#/icon_sad.gif
Bub on my skin is a combo of strong soap, ginger, and some other vague spices. The soap is kind of like dish soap; it reminds me of blowing bubbles as a kid. It's just soapy spice so far. I will definitely give it another try and update my review if I get anything different.
Caveat: I have uber wonky skin chemistry, so what is funky on me will probably be fine on someone else.

Actually.. once its been on for about an hour, it smells exactly like fresh german chamomile. Like if you were to pick one and smash the spongy yellow mound between your fingers (a favorite past-time of mine as a kid).
Mmm, I really like this!

If you liked the Fraggle Rock Red blend, you might want to give Bub a whirl.

I tried it last week and thought maybe my nose was broken, but today it's the same, both wet and dry I get spicy pie crust. I'm sure Bub enjoys the pie, but it's not quite what I was hoping for.

So glad I got to try this. Really unique!

eta: Ha, I think there is some Siberian Musk in here, gotta love them single notes. So yeah, soapy Siberian Musk. I may get some more of this, it's kind of sultry.

Wet: Orange and amber and something a tad musky underneath. It's bright and has moments of tartness.
Dry: Dries to a light citrus musk. It does remind me of sunshine. It's not for me, but anyone who wants something light and warm should try it!

I must say though, for all I love it, I just can't see the meadows in it. I'd suggest you try it if you like very gentle foodie things and possibly also amber. Also if you are one of those, like me, who actually likes the "powder" smell.
PS I just went down to kiss our dog good-night and suddenly realised that the pie-smell is very like the smell of a dog's ears.

I get a light, fizzy spiciness - a vanilla egg-cream drank in a sunny meadow.
Stays steady for several hours, very nice.

Wet: Wow, this is interesting. Cinnamon rolls? Something fizzy? Not getting any of the outdoors, this is all table scraps on me, but they're yummy table scraps. It does have a "clean" feel, somehow. Hard to describe, but I am liking it way more than I expected to!
Dry: This gets a little soapy - I think a grass note that I don't really smell as grass, but does that sort of "clean green" thing. Still a bit spicy, bit fizzy. It's different, and I do enjoy it, but I can't imagine wearing it. I may use it as a room scent though (now that I have one of those cool mist thingies!)

Orange spice soap, then the grass note grows as it dries. Bub smells like freshly washed clothes, dried on the line and all warm from the sun.

Bub is surprisingly foodie on me. It's snuggly and spicy, not soapy at all, and I'm not getting a lot of meadow smell either. Once it has completely dried down, the scent it reminds me most of, weirdly, is Ooky, after the almond has evaporated. I've always had very food-motivated dogs in my life, so maybe if your dogs have been indifferent to food and just want to chase a ball in a field all day it might smell different on you? Anyway, I love Ooky so it's very nice, just not what I was expecting.
