Deep tonalities of wild blackcurrant and cracked pink peppercorn embrace the luminosity of pure jasmine and dewy rose enhanced with soft cashmere warmth, blonde woods, and vanilla bourbon
I expected a warm, ambery, perfumey, slightly cashmere or linen or patchouli-ish type of scent based on the name and label (something similar to Better Homes & Gardens Soft Cashmere Amber
), but this scent is totally different. I smell fruit first, although it's not entirely a fruity scent. It's not a berry, not pear... maybe something tropical, but not really pineapple either. I'm really getting a soft tropical vibe from this scent. It could be a combination of apple and wood, but not a true apple scent either. I do detect a hint of cashmere, as well as a tiny bit of vanilla. It's not perfumey at all, and although it's sweet, it's not overly sweet, and has a hint of a sour or tart note (and even a little bit smoky). So it's not sweet or fruity enough to be a fruity body cream type scent. It reminds me of (although it's not the same as) the Flannel side of the old Better Homes & Gardens Comfy & Cozy Duo
, which was also the same scent as a very old Better Homes & Gardens scent called Southern Spanish Moss. The notes on the label (Warm Woods & Crisp Apple) show apple, but apple is not in the actual scent notes. I do get the apple and woods though. And there's the cashmere and vanilla. And I do get some of the currant as well, which is a fig-like soapy scent with a tiny bit of tartness (hence the bit of tartness in this scent), a hint of light wood, a smidgen of a perfumey note, and a smidgen of a berry note with hardly any sweetness. I don't get the peppercorn (which is often added to cologne type scents). I also don't detect jasmine or rose, although rose, maybe barely, way in the background? It's an unusual scent, and I kind of like it.
