Lantern w/ Blatant Invitation

Recommended Posts


When they hold their lanterns high

those sprites out wandering within deepest night

you may find yourself so tempted

to follow where they will.

They promise all the dainties and warmth

for you have come so far and it is very cold

longing for a hearthfire and comfort.

See the light? The way it which it seems to sway and bob

briefly within sight

beckoning, and forward you may go.

But have a care, for who indeed would be out upon a night such as this?

And do they know

that perhaps it is not you who should fear the sight of a stranger

as you move ever closer

to meet them.

Scent: Super sweet butterscotch pumpkin.

This is SO yummy!  It has an Autumnal baked goods kind of vibe, but also the oh so sweet butterscotchy thing - not a total sugar bomb, necessarily, but a definite thick aura.  I really like it because I'm such a fan of Bad Elf.  It's pumpkin-spicy, but not as much as I might have assumed.  It's more like a pumpkin cookie or something for me, where the baked goods aspect is more prevalent to my nose than any inherent pumpkin-ness.

I finally managed to drag myself away from Beewitched.  I’m currently in Lantern.  I really like this one too, but I need to give it until tomorrow morning to see how the spices react with my skin chemistry over time.

It is definitely gourmand, but not overly sugary on me so far.   It is similar to something I’ve worn in the past, and enjoyed, but I cannot place…

It’s yummy, and smells  like autumn in a bottle to me.  I bake a lot, especially in fall and winter.  And early in to wearing it, it smells more like how the combined  spices smell in the batter (or pie filling) while still in the bowl before baking.

I think I figured out what this reminds me of.  It seems a lot like Noco Brown Sugar.  It’s been a few years since I wore that, but yeah, I think it wears similarly on me.  The pumpkin isn’t showing up as much as the spices we associate with pumpkin edibles (and drinkables).
