Chrissy's Autumn Halo

Recommended Posts

AD-PE-ChrissyAH.jpg

A team creation by Chrissy and Halo, wonderfully Autumnal and delicious too. Like a walk in the woods on a cool Fall day, wrapped in a cashmere sweater. A centerpiece of English Toffee drizzled with sweet syrupy fig, smooth vanilla and a gorgeous Napalese amber with a natural hint of spice.

This one is kinda hard to describe but I love it! Think I'm getting mostly fig and vanilla... It's creamy but not thick. Fresh but not clean. Green but not outdoorsy like. LOL it's just right. It smells pretty and feminine but in a luxurious way. I want to wear a cashmere sweater, red lipstick and tall boots then hit up all the fancy designer stores smelling like this PE.

Overall, it's beautiful and I love it. I think many people who are sensitive to strong scents could wear this. It smells like expensive and luxe body lotion. I would never ever pick out the notes in here, but together they are gorgeous!

Not at all what I thought! I expected foodie and this is not that at all on me. I get only fig for a really long time and only after some hours do the other notes come forward and blend in. No toffee smell at all until I get the blend of vanilla Amber and possibly toffee. This is a different fig than I am used to. This is a bright and almost citrusey fig. Very much a green scent over a foodie at least for the first part of today. But what I love about it is that it is almost like wearing two perfumes in a single day. It morphs like that so I start with a completely office appropriate scent at 8 am but by 4, my sweater held the soft lush vanilla Amber scent. I never felt like I was over-scented and this doesn't have a ton of throw but it lingers on my forearms at 8 pm. Well done!!

This is really sexy!! It's like a sexy expensive little black dress. It's not foodie though - just in case anyone was wondering, there are toffee bits that come through here and there but I get more fig, vanilla, and amber. I also boosted this baby with Bang naturally because it was screaming BANG ME NOW. If anyone wants a fall scent that is a bit on the sexy sophisticated side - this baby is that!

This is different than how I envisioned it but still very lovely. Wet it opens with crisp leaves that almost smell like apples. The toffee comes in with a whisper and smooths out the leaves after a few minutes. But the toffee is super subtle. I didn't get it at all until I did a full great big slather a bit ago. The vanilla is also in the background adding fullness and a bit of creaminess. After it's fully dried down the golden ripe fig takes center stage and drips it's nectar over the rest of the notes. It's the exact fig I had imagined. So overall, not as foodie as Chrissy and I had imagined but I really like it. And based on just the week that I've had it, I think it will continue to get richer and foodier as it ages.

Now that I have worn this for a few hours, it has magically transformed to a rich golden cashmere scarf wrapped around you for a Autumn walk in the brisk air just like I described to Mara. It's definitely more foodie than before and the amber is a bit on the perfumey side. Very nice. Sophisticated but playfully yummy. Quite the morpher! Well done Mara!

I mainly get fig from this but I really like it! And again, I wouldn't have expected I would, but it's not foody on me at all, more like a fig amber which is just so lovely and smooth and a bit tangy-bright on top.

This is a very sweet scent. I think it is an interesting alternative to candy apple scents. I get that sort of a feel from this. A green fig covered in sticky toffee.

So glad to hear the cashmere scarf in the Autumn air came into bloom after a rest. Looking forward to trying! I really like the label art too.

 

I think I got the last bottle. There’s always so many things I want, and so many things that get left behind.

Yesterday I decided Chrissy’s Autumn Halo is finally coming home to me, and Whoa, it was no longer listed. Got it just in time!

I got my bottle and tried it out immediately. From reading the reviews here, I knew to expect something unusual. 

 

It really seemed to take me back to my preteen years, when the warm days were starting to get shorter, and Mom’s curfew was nightfall. So I’d walk home in warm Autumn sunsets at a time of evening when traffic is quieting down, families are together at home, dinner is ready.

I refreshed it and wore it to bed. I’d wake from time to time, notice it’s gentle aroma again, and it was very comfy.

Very nice.
