Oatmeal and Apple Spice Cookies

Recommended Posts

My original impression of this when it arrived was that it featured the same roasted apple note from Lambs-Wool, but this features a much fresher apple note than that one. It's very apple-forward and brown sugary, with some oats lingering in the background, but not very cookie-like on my skin, sadly. There also isn't much spice to it, so those with sensitive skin need not worry about this one being an irritant.

 

I think those that are wanting apples and brown sugar will be pleased, but those hoping for more cookie than apple might be a little disappointed. I'm going to let this rest for a few weeks and retest it and see if it has changed with more time to settle. Because it is nice... but I was really hoping for more cookie.

This didn't work for me as perfume, but worked nicely as a room scent. Applied to my skin, it smelled like an oatmeal cookie dipped in cleaning fluid. Really not good. I tried multiple times but it was always both doughy and astringent, so I gave up and burned it as a room oil.... and then it smells like oatmeal and apple.

Spiced, cooked apple backed by nuts and comfy oatmeal cookies.

 

At first, this has a spiced apple focus, but nuts and oatmeal cookies soon come out. Ample brown sugar appears in early drydown. I'd like to spend some time in this kitchen.

 

The blend as a whole is nearly woody in its combined notes -- and, when it first arrived, I thought I was getting some traces of wood notes stashed away in it. I love the effect.

 

This is the welcoming scent of a cozy brown and wood-toned country kitchen, and I'm more than a little tempted to bottle.

Mostly grains with a little fresh apple juice in the bottle. Goes on as wet cereal with fresh apple juice. Brown sugar and a breath of nutmeg come in as it dries. Fades back to regular apple juice. Finishes as soggy apple oatmeal.
