Pumpkin Dust

Recommended Posts

Shavings of white pumpkin rind and honey powder.

I tried this at NYCC and I will never forget it. Sweet pumpkin with a sprinkle of honey dust on it. True to form.

SOAP. Sharp, hideous soap. And cinnamon brooms? It's just awful.

 

I'm so disappointed, because their pumpkin scents are almost always gorgeous on me....but not this one. No, not this one.

i'm from Georgia. and i adore peaches. fresh, canned, cobbler, however you wanna serve it up, i loves me some peaches.

i also like pumpkin. not that "pumpkin spice" thing, but actual real pumpkin-flavoured-pumpkin. no spices needed.

 

actually, i like most orange foods. except mangoes, and peppers.

 

a few years back we had the Pie update and there was a Peach Cobbler scent that made me sad because it didn't really smell like peach cobbler to me.

 

this, though? this smells like peach cobbler. not a fancy one, but the "dump" kind you make with canned peach and a cake mix.

 

i've tested it about five times so far and i keep gettin' straight up peach cobbler. which i'm totally ok with.

Sweet, almost waxy pumpkin. Deep warm honey. Definitely getting a peachy vibe, too. Kinda of musky, maybe peach musk? Maybe honey musk? As it dries the fruitiness backs off and I get more pumpkin and deep honey. Not as dry/powdery as I expected but I am very happy with it.

This smells like an old BPAL forum exclusive, I think? Werepuppy?  but with a dusting of cinnamon.

Pumpkin Dust smells like Chewy SweeTarts to me, in the decant and on my skin.

And it remained that way for the longest time. Eventually, I ended up getting some waxiness from it (like a crayon) and that peachy aspect that others have mentioned in their reviews.

I was interested in this one because it seemed like it might be a nice pumpkin scent without the spice, but this is most definitely not for me.

Wet: Honey hard candy musk (seriously, the only way I can describe it) with a touch of pumpkin. Definitely on the sweeter side. 

 

Dry: Much more musky than the wet stage, and less sweet. Still a pumpkin-honey-musk tango.

There must be cream or a dairy component in this blend. It takes some time for the blend to settle and for the cream/butter and honey notes to emerge. I was expecting something light and powdery, but it's on the thicker gourmand side. People who enjoy creamy/buttery honey scents, check this one out.

The pumpkin to this smells very raw. Almost yammy, pulpy, orange.

 

The honey powder is interesting. It definitely has that honey sweetness but is definitely a powder. Has a sort of make up or talcum powder scent to it, which has a distinct sweetness of its own alongside the honey sweetness. Also makes this smell a touch 'clean'.

 

Overall I actually dig this one quite a bit. You definitely have to be someone who is into powder scents to like this though.
