It's funny. I was really excited about getting my decants a couple of years ago and then I just set them aside.

It is really warm and sweet, but unless berry is the dominant note, I never get much of it. For me the red current and pink pepper hang on for dear life. It's a nice sweet but slightly spicy scent. Saving this for cooler months.

My mother, who has classified my BPAL collection as bizarre, (She likes some of the scents on me. But was pretty shocked by the volume I tried.) actually had a pretty nice description of Sugar Skull.

It smells like a stone passage way that hasn't been opened in a long time. Not musty, but something fruity in the air.

Wet: Really strong sugar smell and more fruit that I remembered from previous versions. Great because I don't really like smokey notes.

Dry: Still pretty sugary.

After a few days it rather loses the potency and reminds me of maple syrup, although that could just be me getting used to the smell. My favorite fall scent.

In Topic: March Hare

I have had a Proustian longing for March Hare over the past couple of months. Absolutely had to have it and scoured sales lists for it. In fact I even thought about purchasing a bottle because I convinced myself that my wee imp would be gone by the next day.

And then, the longed for imp arrived.

Wet: Spicy apricot. Reminds me of Christmas at my Grandmothers. She had these clove sachets that she hung around the house and the scent clung to the box.

Dry down: Apricot note becoming more prominent over the clove. Still a spicy fruit though. Probably won't need the bottle but will keep an imp around.

Later: :P I, I smell like rutabaga. What on earth happened?

Add me to the list of people who wouldn't know a current if it bit them, but I love Eat Me.

It is cake. And vanilla. And Cake. And yummy. And cake. Why have I not ordered this before now? And did I mention that my arm smells like cake?


Or that I really like cake? :lol:

Really strange reaction. All those reviews of what a wonderfully strong spicy sweet smell this is made me really excited for Chimera. The reality?

In the imp: faint cinnamon

On the wand: faint cinnamon

On me: *deep inhale* cinnamon?


Oh well. Have to stick with GP for my spicy sweet.
