Bonfire Toffee

Recommended Posts

Our spin on a traditional Guy Fawkes Night treat: treacle toffee soaked in rich, dark bourbon.

I wasn't sure what 'Treacle' was (or is, honestly). But this scent sounded interesting and different from other Halloweenies.

 

In the Bottle:
Dark boozy caramel

 

On my Skin, Wet:
A burst of what smells a little bit like burnt coffee with a touch of smoke. Carries some kind of a sweet note with it.

 

On my Skin, Dry:
Dark sweet molasses with a faint waft of smoke. It's not listed, but I detect a very small note of chocolate or cocoa. This scent reminds me of a childhood dessert that I can't place.

 

Verdict:
It IS different from other Halloweenies in my collection, and I love that it is a sweet but broody perfume. I may buy a backup bottle of this one.

Bourbon and sweet caramel. It's a sweet, boozy sort of gourmand blend. Medium throw and wear length.

Toffee and brûlée in the bottle. Goes on as a wet, molasses-like brûlée. There's more of a heavy spice mix (cinnamon, nutmeg, etc.) as it dries. Finishes as boozy, slightly dry brûlée notes. Excellent longevity. A lot like Sugar Skull, so if you don't have a bottle of that, absolutely grab this.

My first thought, when this hit my wrist, was that this was too much toffee and not enough bonfire.  It wasn't until I checked the notes today that I realized there wasn't actually supposed to be smoke in here.  I don't always love foodies, and this was too treacly for me at first.  But it grew on me, and I imagined that a hint of smokiness eventually rode along with the boozy dark caramel.  It had great wear length on me, and the late drydown is beautiful and mellow.  The decant is a keeper, and if I foodies were more of what I wear, I would definitely buy a bottle.

Really delicious buttery toffee. The caramel has a lot of depth, not too sweet at all. I get just a touch of spice.
