Candy Corn Coated Candy Apple

Recommended Posts

Tart green apples coated in thick gobs of melty granulated white sugar, with butter, bourbon vanilla, and a dash of cinnamon, spattered by candy corn and candy sprinkles.

 

In the bottle - Wow. I want to bathe in this.

 

Wet - Yep, that’s sweet caramel and apple. A touch of corn syrup.

 

Drydown - Such happy sweetness! And some apple spice from the candy apple! Ooh, is that a Granny Smith? Definitely green apple, whatever it is, but the tartness is tempered by the dripping candy corn coating. I swear I’m getting caramel in here somewhere. It’s not the sticky note I get from a lot of the sweeter blends -- it’s more of a glossy, hard-shelled sugar.

 

Verdict - I’m SO thankful for the tester bottle, but I really wish I had more of this! Off to scour the forums!

Ok...So I know I had this scent a long time ago and realized I didn't make a review! but that was back in the day when I (and my nose) were new to BPAL and I recently got this back. WHY did I ever give it up in the first place??

 

In Bottle: fresh tart apples!! Yummy! I have a bottle of Sugar Slathered Candy Apple, and to me, this is a sharper, sweeter version.

 

On Skin: YUM! I am a foody lover, so this is right up my alley. I get apples and lots of sugar. Halloween in a bottle. As it warms up, I get the teeniest bit of the bourbon. Any booze note can go real good or real bad for me, and this is a good one. I don't get any cinnamon in this at all.

 

Drydown: This is so yummy.....this is like the more edgier sister of SSCA. :) I love this! It has a medium throw on me. Turns into a candy corn scent with that apple in the background. Amazing!!

In the bottle: tart apple

 

On my skin: tart apple is number one, it also has a little bit of a burnt note to it. Waiting to smell the candy corn but not yet...

 

Drydown: I get the sugar note now and the tart apple is still there. The candy corn never made a definite appearance and the tart apple is a bit too much for me. I was expecting more from this one...more candy corn that is lol

The apple note on this one is beautiful. However the "candy corn" gets a toffee-esq scent on me that's a no go. I smelled something similar in Sticky Pillowcase before as well.

 

There are plenty of other apple scents I like much more, so this one is a swapper for me. But it was straight forward. Beautiful tart juicy apple, and sticky-toffee + sugar sweet on top.

Applejack brandy in the bottle. Goes on as green apple juice. A brûlée note develops as it dries, but that soon goes stale — like the sprinkles are really old. This eventually recovers into a cheerfully artificial sugar note, like a corn syrup/sugar shell.
