Sweet Strawberry Gingerbread

Recommended Posts

A holiday creation of Lilith’s! Squished strawberries and gingerbread with a touch of French vanilla and mint.

 

Sweet strawberry candy, whiff of vanilla and gingerbread. It's a ton ton ton of strawberry candy on me. For those of you that like candy blends, give this a whirl. Good throw and wear length.

wet: in the bottle all i get is a blast of strawberries - super sweet and juicy.

drydown: the gingerbread starts to emerge, lending a little spice and warmth, but it never goes full-on foodie. maybe it's the mint that's keeping it a little "fresh"? but i never detect mint as an individual note.  it starts to take on a little bit of a cabbage patch doll smell, but it never really turns plasticky soo yay! sweet strawberry is definitely the dominant note throughout wear - at first it seemed more like fresh, ripe strawberries, but on final drydown it blends with the other notes to be more hard candy. good wear and throw.  I see this wearing well in the spring or summer, maybe layer with extra gingerbread for true foodie/winter.

Wet: Strawberry candy! Not getting any gingerbread yet.

 

Dry: Still strawberry candy. Gingerbread.. where are you?! I love strawberry scents, but I wanted that gingerbread to appear!

This was not what I expected: Both sniffing from the decant and on my skin there is no sign of gingerbread. None. No mint, either. I get mostly sugary strawberry, vaguely reminiscent of that sought-after sufganiyot type but also slightly Strawberry Shortcake doll-esque. It sticks close to the skin and doesn't seem to last very long.
