What scents do you commonly associate with Halloween? For me apples, candy corn, and black licorice come to mind first. How about Candy Corn Coated Candy Apple? Think of a bright red apple engulfed in a crunchy candy coating and rolled in crushed candy corn….yay or nay?
Proves yay as a scent.
Earlier this month I promised I’d introduce you to more of the Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Halloweenies Perfume Oils. Today I don’t have a BPAL scent, I actually have a Trading Post one!
Nestled in the cobwebs of the BPAL website you’ll come across a link that will lead you to the Black Phoenix Trading Post which houses an array of very limited edition accessories, perfume oils, lotions, potions, and soaps! These offerings are a separate addition to the regular fare at BPAL and include an extra shipping charge should you decide to order but in many cases it’s so worth it as some of the selection is quite special.
This year a single Halloweenie ended up in the midst of the Trading Post entitled simply Candy Corn Coated Candy Apple. Almost instantly I was on it as I love all good things Halloween and this scent was the true spirit of the Holiday.
Now some of you might not be interested in smelling like overly sweet candy apple and candy corn but me? I don’t mind in the least.
The scent promises a tart green crunchy apple engulfed in thick gobs of cherry red white sugar, butter, vanilla, and dashes of cinnamon with candy corn and candy sprinkles. Enough to give you a nice tooth ache!
First sniff is indeed a tart, crunchy green apple with a underlay of warm caramel. First application comes across as a stronger, sweet, almost candy-like apple scent sans candy corn, caramel, or anything else but that sweet, crunchy apple.
As it dries down the richer notes of the scent is released and a buttery caramel dominates the apple as well as faint hints of cinnamon and candy corn come across.
Towards its final throw it begins to morph into the perfect blend of apples, candy corn, and Halloween!
Delicious and oh so perfect to begin the celebration of the dead!
Total Muse Approved for purchase for those who adore candy, foody scents.
