This is exactly what I hoped it would be!  It's the yummiest warm comfort foodie scent, like freshly baked cookies straight out of the oven.  I thought it would remind me of Totem Goat, which I really enjoyed,  but it's most reminiscent to my nose of one my all time faves, Animal Crackers.  Interestingly it keeps making me think that it also must have cedar as a grounding note but something else is doing the work of adding a marvelous textured depth.  Delicious!  And while Animal Crackers was yummy vanilla this is gorgeous spice cookies.  Perfect cold weather sleep scent.

Totally agree with Black Cat in terms of a comfort scent, to me this is in the tradition of things like Warm & Toasty and Z-Day - just warm sweet comforting goodness.  It's sort of a more basic version of something like Scotchies: an out-of-the-oven oatmeal-y foodie; but not too sweet or spicy, just right.

This is yummy goodies in a bottle!  I  only got a trial size because maple can go really wrong on my skin, but definitely not this time.  It has almost a buttersotch smell to it and is really light on the spices.  This is a perfect fall/winter perfume.

When I put this on, I first thought of Scotchies! Then as it dried down, it was more reminiscent of Animal Crackers. I love both of those, so this is a total win for me!

This one didn’t really remind me of my Animal Crackers or my Scotchies. I didn’t really get any maple on this one. I did experience a new note — raisin. I wasn’t around for Totem Goat. 
 

I did find myself looking around for something to eat that tasted the way I smelled!  I was even searching for Soul Cake recipes.
 

Spicy, creamy yumness!!!  That milk/butter/cream note gets me every single time!

Soul Cakes is very sweet and baked goods like. I amp maple a lot, so on me it was pretty strong. I also get some of the spice. It's very thick, rich, and custardy. Very foody. With the maple, it's almost too sweet, like eating too much cake, but I think if maple isn't a problem for you, it would be fine. It reminds me a lot of walking past the bakery section in a supermarket. Not a regular bakery, but very specifically a supermarket bakery. No, I have no idea what the difference is, but I FEEL it. Lol. After about 30 minutes, it calms down a little and rides out the rest of its time as a lightly spiced maple.

I’m finding these reviews funny in that all the other scents mentioned above, they’re all one that I thought I’d love and were recommended to me but weren’t quite right. I started a “tell me your favorite Buttercream LP’s thread” a few years ago, and there’s a solid amount of info on there, if you’re new to LP and like comfort foodies and gourmands do check it out.
 

Animal Crackers, Scotchies, Warm and Toasty were all suggested to me, and I eventually acquired trials of all of them. I even bought a full spray bottle of Z-Day when it came out and it ended up going to another forever home because it wasn’t quite right. Many of the suggestions on that thread were big hits, I’m just saying the comparisons to Soul Cakes referenced upthread weren’t winners for me. 
 

When I saw the oats and nutmeg listed for Soul Cakes, I figured it would be a hard pass for me. Sugared Oatmeal dried down just like dust on skin, while nutmeg can amp aggressively and overpower me. But now I have to say, this is why we have to get all the trials! Soul Cakes is my version of your perfect Scotchies/ Animal Crackers/ Warm and Toasty! Maybe it’s the raisin that’s tilting it in a different direction for me? I do love hot cooked raisins. 
Ordering it right now.
