Oregon-The Clockwork Kumquat (USA collection)

Ingredients can disappear and that means that the Possets which are made from those ingredients must disappear also. These are the blends to which we have to make a fond farewell.

This one *is* fun...on me I get the fruity/creaminess as well, with woody/earthiness coming through after dry-down. Also, a gentle skin-close scent on my skin. I'm a fan of chocolate/orange scents - this is a pretty one!

I like this one. It is many layered I think. Wet, it's all zingy, juicy berries, almost foody but luscious. Within a minute or so I get tobacco leaf coming up REALLY powerfully. No-one else has mentioned tobacco but it's unmistakably tobacco to me. It has a bitter, not quite smokiness. Over time the tobacco backs off and I get something like a lovely fruity sandalwood. It's really nice. I can't pick out the patchouli and I don't get the white musk that someone else mentioned at all. Something about this reminds me of Doped Pumpkin a lot, but I like Oregon more. This is another one that will be going on my "want" list.

Edited: because I DO know how to spell Pumpkin, I just can't type very well :)

I need to remember to shake these when testing!

I got this bottle secondhand, and the first time I tried it, it was all orange candy creamsicle. Pretty but juvenile.

Then I shook it and tried it again and while it still has the candy orange start, it deepens to a more orange peel scent (kumquat) with hints of sandalwood or patchouli and a bit of creamy musk, so it is not so foody. This is the sexy that the first reviews mentioned! :) Yummy in all senses of the word. :Smitten_emoticon:

Kumquats in the background with an overlay of sweet vanilla (almost to the extent of custard). Sweet and sugary, but always keeping that fresh brightness and never becoming cloying - yum

Very, very creamy. There's a slightly spicy note in this to me, but what comes across overwhelmingly is MINT ICE-CREAM, and no matter how long it stays on my skin or how many times I sniff the bottle, that's what I get. Incredibly smooth, but... ice-cream is just a little too "foody" for me.

Starts off like Fruit Loops cereal, then smooths out to a creamy citrus.

wow, i think i'm in love, just tried this and since have slatherd it on again twice, when wet on skin smells like milk and breakfast cereal, then mellows into an orangey scent, i kept slathering just for the breakfast cereal scent at the beginning.

I like the the subtle patchouli in this one - balances the citrus nicely. I get a hint of something almost peachy in this.
