Pomegranate Sufganiyot

Recommended Posts

I was afraid this might be all fruit- my experience with Blackcurrant Sufganiyot- and when I first opened the bottle, it was very tart.  Luckily, when I put it on my skin and let it dry, it became a very pretty, sweet blend.  The pomegranate was soft and bright, while the pastry provided a warm base.  This will be one I wear a lot, and not just in winter.

This is really nice! It's all tart red fruit and sugary dough, with the fruit being more forward. (Or at least, it is on me, but I tend to amp red currant and cranberry type notes). I definitely detect the pomegranate I smell in Mme Moriarty once the cranberry calms down. This is similar to last year's Fig & Cranberry Suf, but darker and less sweet because of the pomegranate (although the pastry note does add sweetness, so it's not all tartness). If you enjoyed the Fig & Cranberry Suf and Eat Me, or wished there was a more gourmand pomegranate scent, I'd definitely recommend this. I can also see myself wearing this outside of a winter/holiday context.

This was my first sufganiyot - I thought real hard about the raspberry one, but the lab's raspberry note does not generally work well on me, whereas the pomegranate does. This is absolutely delicious, desserty, tart and juicy red fruit. I smell more of the pastry in the bottle than I do on my skin, but it is definitely sugared fruit for baking rather than fresh cut.

Low throw - sticks close to the skin and fades pretty quickly, although a hint of it remains on the sleeves of my hoodie.

Wet: Pomegranate! Tart, rich, and sweet. The pastry note is there, but the pomegranate/red currant/cranberry mix is dominating.

 

Dry: The dough comes out more now, but that fantastic (and slightly less-sweet but just as tart) pomegranate jelly mix is still leading the way. DELICIOUS, and decent throw on me!

 

Fellow Sufganiyot lovers - you won't be disappointed!

 

My sufganiyot ranking is now: Blueberry, Pomegranate, Strawberry, Fig & Cranberry, Raspberry, Blackcurrant.

I mean... It's a sufganiyot. Yum.

 

This has the cozy, sugary pastry scent you may have come to know and love. The fruit part is closest to that in Fig and Cranberry Sufganiyot, among the ones I've tried. This one lists a little cranberry, so it's not a stretch. I'm really enjoying the tart red jamminess of the pom-cran-currant combination.

 

I'm getting low on the Fig and Cranberry, and this would be a delightful next chapter in the sufganiyot narrative.

In the vial: Tangy pomegranate jelly and fried sugary pastry. This is a really nice combination, with the tanginess of the fruit offsetting the sugar overload of the dough. 

 

On my skin:

 

Wet, it's the same as in the decant. As it dries, a little of the tartiest tartness -- maybe the cranberry? -- fades, mellowing the fruit jelly note just a bit. The dough also takes on a quality of... if you've had a warm, fresh donut that's just been rolled in sugar? Yes, like that. 

 

This is possibly my favorite sufganiyot and is honestly pretty delightful. I'm not the hugest bakery or fruity perfume person, but this combines the best of both of these qualities in a way that really highlights the other. I'd purchased this decant for the fun of testing it, not really believing I'd want a full bottle -- and I might still not, but it is definitely under consideration. 

 

At the very least, I'm going to need to test the decant again to pay more attention to wear length. (The throw is low on me, so there's not so very much that my skin can afford a lot of fading.)
