Velvety, vanilla-infused buttercream frosting sweetened with caramelized brown sugar warmed by delicate allspice, candied clove bud, and a splash of smooth bourbon
Sweet caramel with butterscotch, and a smidgen of something else like rum perhaps. I'm not getting any shortbread or bakery type notes. And I don't think I detect any spices like cinnamon. I like it! It's not the same as Mainstays Salted Caramel Butterscotch
, which was, as the name suggested, a salted butterscotch caramel. This scent, however, doesn't have the salt, and is not as buttery and rich. If I had to choose a favorite, I'd say Salted Caramel Butterscotch, but this scent is very nice too, just totally different. Looking at the notes, okay that very slightly "boozy" note is the bourbon. And brown sugar, yes now that I know it's in there, I do get more of the brown sugar than the caramel (and although it's rich and slightly buttery, it's not as rich as caramel). Unfortunately this scent started dissipating in under 2 hours, and was pretty much gone within 3 hours.
