It’s Halloween! Almost, kind of, sort of. For me, Halloween is celebrated all through October. I love everything about it! My schedule is typically jammed back with trips to haunted venues like Blood Manor, Zombie Sleepaway (I have to have my head examined after doing that), and Horseman’s Hollow! And Halloween would not be complete without seeing Jonathan Kruk performing the Legend of Sleepy Hollow.
But by far the most important part of the season are the scents. Whether you’re shopping some of Lathers & Lights spooky blends or indulging in the Lab’s Halloweenies, fragrance goes a long way at making the season even more enjoyable.
I’ve already introduced you to Universal Voodoo’s incredible perfume oils but today I’d like to take a second to chat Ooey Gooey Goblin with you! A scent that will truly evoke Halloween and might just become your signature scent of the season!
One of my favorite snacks of the season is without a doubt Caramel Apples. Supermarkets around here start stocking them towards the end of September and they remain a staple in my fridge well into November because they are just too damn yummy. What’s not to love about a crunchy green apple covered in creamy caramel and rolled in peanuts. A few days ago I saw caramel apples without the peanuts and felt deeply offended. What? No peanuts? Blasphemy!
Needless to say they don’t only taste good but they smell good too and Universal Voodoo captures that scent beautifully in the blend called Ooey Gooey Goblin. This is a warm, strong blend of candy corn, green apple, and caramel. In the bottle, there’s a distinct melted butter scent about the blend with a back note of candy corn. Wet on the skin, the blend is still very buttery with a stronger note of candy corn. As it settles and dries down creamy warm caramel comes out to play with a delicate tart, crunchy green apple note. The butter and candy corn disappear and the caramel and apple take over the fragrance and create a strong, lingering, gourmand scent that will make you crave a caramel apple. If you tried Universal Voodoo’s Sticky scent you’re bound to love Ooey Gooey Goblin!
This captures the spirit of Halloween beautifully.
As always, this is a masterful blend that’s complex, unique, gorgeous, and a must have.
