scourger Posted October 14, 2007 Share Posted October 14, 2007 Based on a traditional Samhain ritual blend to thank the universe during the change of seasons, and usher in good fortune and plenty for the winter. Promintent Notes: Apples and Soul Cake, Pumpkins and Oak, Redwood, Fall Leaves, Frankincense and Patchouli. In the bottle, I get a whiff of creamy caramel, backed by apples. Wet, the caramel softens and the apples come to the front. These are fresh, crisp apples; not the sticky sweet of apple juice, nor even the turned sharp of cider. The leaves in the background add a different kind of crispness, and it really is like walking down the street on an Autumn day, while you munch on a candied apple. As the scent dries down, the apples fade, and become just a lovely subtle twist of freshness as the woods and incense come to the front. I was afraid, from the first burst of caramel, that this scent would too sweet for me. I should have known better. It makes me homesick for real fall weather, and autumn leaves - I can't stop sniffing myself, because it makes me feel that I am there, caught in the magic of the season. Incense fans will love this, and non-pine woodsy fans probably will too. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
