In anticipation of the Halloween update from Bpal and from other indie companies I have decided to revisit my autumnal-Halloween scents!
I love this time of the year it's actually my favorite. September it's my birthday month as well so from my childhood I have always waited for this month to come. I kind of hate Summer and hot weather so Autumn is my perfect season!
I love the color of the trees and smell in the air the start of the new season the first rain... All of it!
My addiction to perfumes introduced me to America's tradition of this season as well. When I first saw in the Cocoa's Pink's site that they had pumpkin perfumes it was so weird for me because we don't have that kind of perfumes here in Greece and we don't eat pumpkin so much or when we do we make savory pies instead of sweet one.
My first order with pumpkin stuff was from Cocoa Pink as well and it was a pumpkin set for the hair. From that moment I knew I found a new favorite note and I understood why so many people go crazy for pumpkins.
Then I learned how to make a pumpkin puree from scratch, keeping it in refrigerator and how to make cookies, cheesecakes, pies and all that stuff. This year I may make even a soap with pumpkin!My family at first thought that I was crazy but now they really enjoy my pumpkin creations!
The lovely Rachel from the Brighter Star of All blog shared some Halloween themed blogs with me so I will try to decorate my home too! If I managed to make something nice I will definitely share with you! I think I will start with carving a pumpkin and feeling a little naughty with wearing Mischief from Bpal
AVAILABILITY: 2012 HALLOWEENIE!
OFFICIAL DESCRIPTION:The scent of petty vandalism: toilet paper wads on damp maple trees, squished pumpkins, raw eggs, beer, pumpkin seed hulls, and soapy glass
BEFORE I SMELL: Now you don't reed that kind of perfume notes everyday and when you do it's highly possible that it has to do with BPAL!
Toilet paper, eggs, beef, soapy glass? Oh My !
FROM THE DECANT/BOTTLE: From the imp it's hands down one of the weirder perfumes I have ever sniffed. Cucumber, pumpkins, something vaguely aquatic, sweetness (from the egg?) and a little bit of spice.
WET ON SKIN: That's better! I get the foodie elements more but with an cucumber edge! The damp maple leaves make this perfume very autumnal and it puts you immediately in the autumn spirit even though is still hot outside:(
The perfume description doesn't mention any flowers but it feels like there are some floral elements to the whole like violet or iris.
In that point, I smell the beer as well. A woody beer like someone spilled a bottle of beer in a tree.
DRY DOWN: Fresh pumpkin, a little bit soapy and not entirely sweet. The dry down is my favorite part of this perfume and worth the wait.
OVERALL: I have an imp and this is enough for me. I really enjoy wearing it but it's not for everyday.
