I took the plunge and went full bottle on this one. I Can Not Wait! (and will make sure to post some sort of review after I have it in my grabby hands!) :)

This one is kind of what I thought I was missing by not getting my hands on October Laundry or Frost on the Pumpkin (don't tell me if I'm wrong, lol. I think both of those are long since sold out!) It's a light, airy sort of scent. Not too sweet, perfect for Fall. Clean, but still sort of yummy. I really like this one, too!

You've made a great decision. This has been my favorite LP scent from the very first swipe on my wrist. I smell like something delicious to eat. If some poor man had this on I'd never leave him alone.

I can't get over how non-foody the velvet pumpkins are!!! This is haunting -- I get a whisper of coolness that reminds me a bit of Hauntings, and then the whiteness really announces itself. The pumpkin musk thing is totally happening, and while I can pick up the spiciness JLisa mentions, it isn't cozy or yummy at all, but deeply sophisticated. I have this one on my left wrist and Black Velvet on my right. Amazing!

I agree this is not a gourmand scent. On me, there is a slight initial sweetness, but, this wears as an herbal fragrance that has some spice to it, but not pumpkin pie type spice. I don't notice any buttercream or cocoa. The store site concludes description with "layered with the spicy Autumnal ambiance of a colorful carpet of fallen leaves" This is exactly what I get! Not leaves that have gotten rained on and started to get that damp moldy smell though, just crisp and clean. I am assuming part of that is the oak moss (?) It is beautiful. And, I can see why some might consider it similar to LP Red.

This is delightful! And so intriguing...it is a sheer pumpkin scent on me. I get both a spicy Autumnal and a fresh pumpkin kind of evocation with a gauzy white sweetness, like a sugary veil kind of thing. This blending is exactly what I enjoy in a pumpkin scent for sure. It's sort of like what I like about Looking Glass combined with Fall ambiance.

Good call, Luna!’ That’s exactly it. It has the sophistication of Looking Glass with the spicy warmth of fall. It also vaguely reminds me of Karmiel’s Silken Moonlight. I think it’s sheer sweetness and vanilla that make me think of that. It’s very crisp with a creaminess from the cream. The pumpkin is there, but it’s the pure pumpkin scent, like if you cut open a pumpkin and inhaled. And that contributes to the freshness/earthiness I think. I felt like i’d love this one, and I do, for sure. Just in a totally different way than i’d thought!!

This is the one I thought would be a for sure FB for me but sadly it is not what I expected. Something just isn't right for me here. I smell no pumpkin at all, I think it is the musk that is wrong for me. It is basically all I get. Oh well! The Black Pumpkin was such a huge surprise hit for me so I'm good with that!!

I was surprised by how spicy this is. As soon as it hits my skin it is all spicy sweetness. The sweetness has depth to it, reminiscent of maple or brown sugar. After a while, the pumpkin starts to peek through, but stays as just a whisper, never becoming a prominent note. There's a weird thing my skin does with some milk/butter/cream notes (most noticeably in BBM) that ends up turning them into an almost cigarette smell for an hour or two (I have no idea why. It makes no sense.), and if I hold my wrist right up to my nose I can smell that, but it's very mild with this blend. Even a little distance is enough for the other notes to cover it. Just my wonky skin chemistry that I doubt would happen with anyone else. The long dry down is a very nice creamy sweetness that absolutely screams LPMP to me (I mean that in the best way possible.) The oak moss helps steer it away from the gourmand, and while I can tell it's there, it's very much in the background and isn't loud at all. To me, this scent has the cozy richness of a fall or winter scent, while still remaining light enough for daytime.

This is so creamy and delicious! I love the spicy scent mixed with the creamy vanilla. It's perfect for fall.

I had a VERY full day, finished making kids costumes and getting them ready, taught a class, went to a meeting, raced to daughter's school to get her dressed for school parade, hung out with ex at school event, took her trick or treating near school, had dinner with both my kids and their dad and another divorced couple, them took them out with neighbors kid, then went to the actual grown up dance party where my man was working, all while DRESSED AS WALTER SOBCHOK FROM THE BIG LUBOWSKi. My beard did need to be refreshed like 6-10 times, but you know what never quit? My WHITE VELVET PUMPKIN! After walking another mom's little one up to many doors so she could finish her super serious gossip session, she said "you know what's cool? You can just smell that sweet fresh carved pumpkin smell everywhere we go." I said, "yeah, it's that good autumn smell." She said, "no, specifically, it's that sweet pumpkin smell." I just agreed, because, really, she was right.

Opens up as a dreamy, creamy, slightly spicy pumpkin, but not overtly autumnal. Dries down to an oakmoss musk, but keeps the pumpkin. Dries down with that signature LP sugar note! I love how the pumpkin stays around. I love the milk/butter/cream note, but the cocoa butter gives it extra oomph at the beginning. What a sweet, delicate, classic LP scent! But, everyone knew this would be good, right?

I want to love this one so badly. I love the pumpkin and the cocoa butter but something is too fresh for me. Its stabby in the third eye.

Delicious! I love milk/cream scents. At first I got a lot of the pumpkin, very autumnal... fresh, but a little crispy, and kind of fluffy... after a full day, it's really soft and sweet, mostly creamy sugar with only the ghost of pumpkin, and just a bit too earthy to be edible. Maybe it's the oak moss? I'm very familiar with the rest of the list, but I've never experienced oak moss before.

This is intriguing! The fresh pumpkin scent, the cool crisp autumnal air about it, and the funny way that it seems like there's a bit of pumpkin pie spice in it at first when there actually isn't any at all. Really nice!

Halo, did that stabbiness go away? I have that problem with anything with leather in it. Like to the point where I want to wash it off, but then that parts gone in 15 minutes.

 

I am so in love with this scent. I did get my shipping notice (!) that it's on it's way, it's my first non-phero in a spray. I finished my little bit from my trial vial today, luckily my sweatshirt sleeves still smelled a bit when i couldn't smell it on my wrists anymore. It's the kind i need to keep huffing.

 

I don't know what's in 7 Minutes to Midnight, but I used it to chase the White Velvet Pumpkin. Does anyone know the notes for 7 minutes? It was released Oct 2009 I believe.

The archive is offline right now, but I know Jennifer is working on updating those review threads that are missing the actual notes, so eventually it will be included.

Thanks Luna! I like the science and detective work I get to do on here. You're always helpful, thank you for your endless knowledge.

Just updated 7 Minutes to Midnight if you'd like to compare! Seems like Pumpkin and Musk are the notes these two have in common.

White Velvet Pumpkin is a fancy autumn scent :D It's a level above everyone else's Halloween, and suitable for formals. I think White Velvet is even fancier than most home fragrances

Upon first application, White Velvet Pumpkin is creamy, spicy pumpkin pie. Quite quickly the pumpkin seems to retreat to the background and I am left with a gorgeous velvety, yet crisp autumnal perfume-y scent with the hint of pumpkin pie spices. I like this one and feel that I should save it for Autumn, a better fit, rather than this hot weather.

I wore this today, and I was in a hurry and so excited to fog myself that I missed my neck and the first spray hit my face. Like I literally sprayed this at my face, the only way it could've gotten to my brain's scent center faster would have been to spray it directly up my nose. Somehow this didn't faze me, only slowed me down for a second, and I went right on with my fogging shenanigans.

 

I know I've only had this for a few months, but it seems to have settled down and smoothed out a little more. It's really lovely.
