Pumpkin candyfloss with lavender, violet sugar, and a dash of mint.

Ah! I love this!!! Initial blast of foody pumpkin (pretty much pumpkin pie!) and strong lavender. This pumpkin is not spicy at all; as I'm very sensitive to spicy scents. Within a few minutes, the lavender is almost gone and the candy floss comes into play. Pumpkin pie still the star here; with that candy sweetness that continues to linger in the background. I didn't get much of any violet or mint in this blend. I should mention that I'm not a fan of lavender normally, but this blend is a winner!

Sweet, sugary lavender & just a touch of pumpkin.

It's a very straightforward scent for me, and I really like this one! It's kind of like the Beaver Moon that was a lavender cheesecake, but without the cheesecake, and pumpkin instead.

Ooooohhhh.... /review.

 

oh wait. I need to say more?

 

Wet: Smells like Lush's Twilight with a touch more spice. Totally awesome.

Drydown: More spice but the purple lavender notes are actually sticking around! Very comforting like TKO but fuzzier and warmer. Its like cozying up with a cup of hot cocoa in your favorite blanket with twinkling strand lights around the ceiling.

Hmmm... In the bottle this is an interesting blend of lavender and foodie warmth. I can faintly detect powdery, sweet violet in the background.

 

When I put this on - Have I mentioned I amp the heck out of cinnamon? If it's in a blend, my skin will find it. O_O Look! There it is, lavender and cinnamon duking it out. I'm also getting a weird, artificial smell that I've noticed in other baked goods/foodie blends that smell great in the bottle but don't work for me. :( Finally, this settles down to a creamy vanilla pumpkin that reminds me a whole lot of The Witches. It's not bad, but I already have an imp of The Witches I rarely use. To the swapmobile!

 

This, at least on me, is much more foodie pumpkin than herbal/floral with a dash of pumpkin, like I was hoping for. But if you missed the Witches, you might try this out. Also reminds me a bit of Cockaigne.

This is more of a spiced pumpkin than Yellow Pumpkin Floss, with a hint of lavender in the beginning drying down to pumkin spice-ish violet? I had to try it but it isn't a love.

I like Hand of Hermes (TAL blend) more than this one for a lavender and cinnamon scent. Hand of Hermes is really strong, creamy, milky lavender and true cinnamon. This is more of a powdery, soft, sugared lavender and buttery cinnamon. It might be the violet turning powdery on my skin. The buttery pumpkin spice isn't a favorite for me.

Foody sugary pumpkin with a touch of lavender. Very foodie, very pumpkin. Good throw and wear length.

This perfume starts off

with a lot of pumpkin on my skin,

with just a hint of lavender,

it sure smells good, but also very strong 😘

I hope that when it ages

the lavender will be a little bit more prominent 😍

I never would have expected this blend to work for me because lavender usually smells medicinal and overpowering. Somehow, the sweetness of the pumpkin blends with the sharpness of the lavender for this creamy, cinnamon, sweet laundry thing. Definitely heavier on the pumpkin for this one. I ordered a backup.

nice. Definitely the lavender from Beaver Moon lavender cheesecake. Not getting much pumpkin though. Aren't pumpkin and lavender supposed to be the most desired scents by a man or something like that?

This has the perfect balance between lavender and pumpkin!

 

ETA- it dries down to maple syrup sugar... lasts a very long time.

In the bottle: Sugary pumpkin and lavender.

 

Wet: There's a blast of lavender, with a spiced, sugary pumpkin candy floss note right behind it. After a few minutes, the violet sugar emerges and becomes quite prominent, and it's more violet, with the sugary pumpkin candyfloss in the background.

 

Dry: Several hours later, both the lavender and violet seem to have retreated to allow the warm pumpkin candyfloss to reign.

 

I'm not sure if it just never appeared on me, or if I just wasn't paying close enough attention, but I can't remember detecting any mint on my skin!

 

Verdict: I was worried about the violet for a bit, but fortunately, the pumpkin candyfloss was able to shine once the scent was dry. I'm happy to have a bottle. Thanks to my wonderful Witch for the bottle! :]

Oooh so this is orangy-purple. It's weird - sugary, with the warmth of pumpkin and the cold of the mint. Like a warm ice slushie. Makes no sense but the idea is nice. Very interesting. Wanna eat this!
