Every year when McGarrigle’s Carnival & Greater Exposition came to Foster’s Landing, it caused a stir in town like no other.  Such excitement, whereupon the dusty remains of Mr. Landry’s cornfield was erected a sprawling kingdom of sights, sounds and smells.  And was it any wonder that all the townfolk would gather to watch the tents and booths and attractions erected, by those strange men with their bulging muscles who were - shocking to the eyes of the gentle females - shirtless and sweating in the Autumn sunshine, pounding stakes into the ground, pulling carts into place, preening for feminine eyes as they set about their hot and heavy work.  They were tanned, and some had tattooes, or unusual scars, or perhaps an earring, hinting of worldly travel and exotic adventures.


“You’ll come see us tonight, won’t you?” they would ask, grinning and winking, and laughing to witness the shy reactions of the girls.  “Unless you’re afraid of fun, that is!”


As this was likely the only fun we had all year, no one would dare miss it.


He roams the midway, running one of the rides or perhaps pitching a game of chance...sexy, mysterious, capable. An alluring stranger in town, but no stranger to hard work and even harder play. Embody the roughneck charms of our carny with this unisex scent which dwells on the dark side of masculinity: black vanilla with a touch of coffee, tobacco absolute, a dash of dark resins and a slightly boozy vanilla bean, with a lingering thread of woodsmoke drifting in the night air.


VANILLA & VANILLA BEAN ~ Aphrodisiac, inspires happiness, playfulness, sexual arousal, lust, vitalizing.
TOBACCO ABSOLUTE ~ Healing, purification, spiritualism. An ode to the Gods.
DARK RESINS ~ Deep sensuality and stimulation.
WOODSMOKE ~ In addition to the attributes of whatever is being burned (resins, woods, etc), smoke is for cleansing, purification, renewal, consecration, concealment and celebration. It is also the foremost mode of communication from this world to the realm of spirits and the gods.

Passing through these gates you will find much

and add a little magic to your life.

For we promise such wonderment and delight
so then upon this Autumn night
of full moon and fallen leaves and shadows stretching tall...
Come one, come all!
Come to our Carnival!


A tradition much beloved by us here at LPMP is the Fall Carnival: a final farewell to the carefree joys of Summer - as the light begins to wane earlier each day and the weather turns brisk - it’s one last time for frolic and fun. Our 2016 Carnival Collection pays tribute to the sights, sounds, and smells of an old-fashioned traveling carnival...its’ colorful characters and delicious treats, all the unique delights one can only experience amidst the excitement on a September eve, with a chill in the air and the haunting music of a distant calliope...
