Cupcakes are to kids what catnip is to cats: red velvet cupcakes, buttercream, vanilla bean, and coconut cream.

Butter cream, coconut, vanilla and a whiff of chocolate cake. The coconut cream is very very fragrant on me, and sort of overwhelms everything else. Good throw and wear length.

In the bottle: Warmed up butter

On the skin: Buttercream with vanilla and a slight bit of chocolate cupcake goodness, with coconut starting to come forward. 

Dry Down: Lots of coconut cream with a dash of butter and velvet cupcake.  The coconut is definitely winning out, which is  bit sad for me, as I find it more of a tropical, suntan lotion smell, whereas the other fragrances worked nicely together and they should have stopped there, imo.  Buttercream, vanilla and red velvet cupcakes sounded so divine!

Cat-Lilith and Cat-Dad has more red velvet cake to it than Senator Barrial (which was more frosting), but the buttercream frosting is the star here for a while, before the coconut cream joins in and it becomes all coconut cream and butter on me.

This one was a gamble due to the coconut cream, and it did not pay off. I would have enjoyed this more if it hadn't contained the coconut cream note. :(

In The Bottle: Buttercream! Yellow box cake!!! :yum:

Wet On Skin: Cake. Cakecakecakecakecake. I literally want to gnaw on my own arm. THAT'S how good this smells.

 

Dry Down: Yup. Just straight up, warm, fresh-from-the-oven, CAKE. I'm not really even getting frosting. But you know what? I don't care! Because A straight-forward cake-perfume is filling a need in my life, and I will love the poop outta this scent for as long as the bottle lasts!

In All: Moist, delicious box cake in a medium-low throw. I will happily wear this alone but will also play around with some layering, because why not? CAAAAAAAKE. ❤️❤️❤️

Starts off as moist and warm from the oven chocolate cake and then dries down to smell like a frosted chocolate cake with oodles of real buttercream frosting made simply with icing sugar and butter.  After a half hour, I can smell more of the coconut cream, and it gets stronger on my skin over time.  Buttercream frosting flavored with coconut and a hint of the chocolate cake underneath.  Sort of like an extra coconutty German chocolate cake with a very generous heap of frosting.  I don't find that the coconut smells too artificial or reminiscent of suntan lotion on my skin, so I like this one.

This is gorgeous.  It’s the most delicious cake, what you want every cake to taste like.  Red velvet cake with buttercream icing, with just a hint of coconut in the background.  
 

It’s sweet, but not sickly sweet.  Rich, but not heavy. By itself, it’s (of course) ultra foodie, but layered with Snake Oil - or something else even - it becomes a gorgeous gourmand.  
 

I love this and I think I need a backup.

So this translates a little weird on my skin. Mocha hot chocolate with a topping of buttercream and a dash of coconut cream. Maybe some bitter cocoa and cardamom sprinkled in. There is a feel that there is cake somewhere but mostly this is like a really delicious drink.

Honestly I quite like it and will keep my partial bottle. It just was not I expected.

Skin testing this right now..... The loveliest vanilla butter cream with a teeny bit of coconut. Smells slightly of cream cheese frosting, but not in a strong dairy way. I detect cocoa, but not the cake (gluten) in red velvet cupcakes. I would say this is an excellent buttercream scent and gourmand lovers will appreciate (more creamy and richer than the frosting note from the recent birth cake prototype), but not necessarily a dominant  player (for reference I get more Blackberry buttercream than red velvet in Monsterbait Closet as well).

Wet: Coconut cream and buttercream! I'm not actually getting much of a cake scent.

 

Dry: Not getting cake still, at all. The coconut cream is very, very strong on me, and I have a feeling it's overshadowing all the other scents (including the buttercream at this point).

 

In my head I was comparing this to Senator Barrial, but they are not alike at all; in SB the cake note is the strongest on me, and I far prefer that scent to this one.

 

Not my jam, sadly.
