Pumpkin Souffle

I've done some vial sniffing with this one, but tonight I have a goodly amount slathered onto skin and I am sitting here huffing the incredible buttery goodness! This is a perfect holiday scent--I am not sure why it didn't get used this fall, but I think it works well with the whole Xmas-y vibe too. It's rich and yummy and festive. After my unfortunate experience with I Scream for Halloween I was worried I might not be able to do pumpkin, but between this and Cauldron Cake, I am in heaven. I am also finding them a perfect pairing; if I go full bottle on one, I'll definitely need to get the other as well. They complement each other beautifully. I get more cake and spice with Cauldron cake (shockingly) while Pumpkin Souffle is butter laid over pumpkin flesh (less bakery, pie pumpkin). Absolutely perfect. Not sure why it took me so long to get these two.

 

I think this is a perfect sleep scent; it would also be a great casual social scent, especially for daytime.

Yeah I get that reaction from spicy scents; I just tough it out, it usually only last a few minutes.

 

I've never had this happen with my other spicy scents but I'm wondering if it's the colder weather making my skin dry and sensitive.

I can't believe I haven't reviewed this! It's crazy wonderful, because as much as I love these spicy scents, it's a crap shoot as to whether I will amp cinnamon or not and the nutmeg and all spice stay nicely balanced, fully there for sure but not pushing over everything else.

 

I've only ever had one thing make me feel slightly uncomfortable skin wise, but it had wasabi in it and it passed very quickly. I've been fortunate with cinnamon and not having burning/itchy skin...which I admit I expected on a couple occasions when it was obvious my skin was blowing it up!

 

Pumpkin Souffle, however, is just all buttery, sweet pumpkin, lightly spiced goodness! :love: I feel awful that I've overlooked it's review because it's really scrumptious and PERFECT for this time of year...but that won't stop me from wearing it all year long! :lol:

Isn't it just wonderful? The butter accord is what really sets it apart for me from any other foodie scent I've tried! I am loving it during these dark winter days, but I am also thinking how perfect it will be when next fall rolls around.

 

And I am also thinking I need a recipe for something that tastes the way this smells.... :-)

Yes! I never knew perfume could be so...DELICIOUS. How DOES she get that in the bottle?! It's crazy, wonderful. Even hubby likes it - BONUS!

 

Hehehe - it's probably better I NOT find something as tasty as this smells...I actually use these types of perfume delights as low calorie treats - smelling them actually CURBS my sweet tooth. And where some treats smell great and then you actually taste them and the disappoint - Mara's creations don't play the bait~n~switch on me. Um, of course, I don't taste them either - but I HAVE been tempted! :lol:

NuTrix, have you tried it with Cauldron Cake? I put them on side by side (without smooshing together) and let all that foodie fall goodness waft up and blend together in a little cloud right next to my skin.... UMMMM MUST GO PUT ON RIGHT NOW!

This has aged so nicely. Just a creamy, pumpkin spice. The cream/butter is so thick and yummy, foodie but a bit perfumey too. I like that. This is such a deep smooth scent, warm and a bit of spice too. This would be great boosted with BI. It's on the list!

So I had bought a bottle of this, sold it on my trade page, then regretted it. I'm so grateful I got another one in the sale!

Every year at this time, I get so sick of hot weather and long for Autumn... Cool weather, I miss you!!! And I start thinking about all pumpkin everything. Yes, I even want to smell like a big ol pumpkin cookie.

This is like a thick piece of pumpkin bread, warmed up and slathered with butter. It's amazing!

Does anyone know, can I put this in my tart warmer as is? Or do I have to add wax to it?

Hi hearts. Well, I would put a little water in the tart well and float a few drops of oil on top. That way you don't scorch the oil, and it simmers longer. No need for wax. That's what I do with any oils I use for home fragrance anyway.

and I'm with you. I'm ready for fall!! summers overrated..(ducks)

Me too, I'm so tired of the hot and humid weather but there will be no cool weather for me anymore. In fact, the weather makes me miss the autumn scents so much that I crave for pumpkin, eggnog, etc scents.

 

I use an electric oil diffuser and although it's been suggested to use neat oil with it, I prefer adding a little water to the oil, LP inclusive. Otherwise, I just add some oil to a small bottle of wwater and use it lIke a room air refresherner.
