«This may be a little premature — I’m not sure this is done developing yet. It has settled from mailing though, so I could not resist putting some on today.
Lovely and soft — I smell Glühwein when first applied. It dried down to rosewater Turkish delight. If those notes seem a little pompous (why not just say boozy berry, or rose-and-sugar?), I assure you, I cannot accurately describe them other then the food items. This has to be the softest, most authentic gourmand I’ve ever come across. As a general rule, I don’t like gourmands — but this is so absolutely gorgeous, I’m won over!
It’s like being transported into the most gorgeous Christmas card illustration — it might be Russian, it might be German, it could be victorian or much older — but this definitely conjures something idyllic from holidays long ago.
As I said, I’m not sure it’s done resting. It’s currently a very soft skin scent, and fairly linear. I suspect more of those lasting Glühwein spices will develop with time, and I cant wait to see what else.
