Possets' description: "Candy and booze. Very simple. VERY sexy. For those special times."

I'm not good at testing more than one at a time, but I posted my review on Shakespeare and think I can handle one more, though not so detailed.
WOW! Candy. Then a hint of bubblegum. This stuff has Throw. Bubblegum gone, back to candy. Oooh, there's almost a sweet pipe tabacco note behind the candy.
(It's like I'm tweeting this one or something. I started typing just after applying.)
Before I got that tabacco vibe, it made me think that this must be how Prada Candy smells. I've only smelled it from one of those magazine things, and I can't remember how it actually smells, but this is like I imagine it might smell. But better (of course). And maybe "darker"?
Almost getting burnt sugar now.
Almost a little smoke underneath?
Not quite getting a booze note, except maybe something like butterscotch schnapps?
Pipe tabacco still there. My dad used to smoke a pipe and I love good pipe tabacco! I think it keeps the whole thing from getting too sweet. But it's still pretty dang sweet

Wet note: Sugary bubblegum.
Dry Note: Maple Syrup. :cry:

Molasses, Honey and Maple notes do not work with my skin chemistry at all. I will have to pass on this one.

Retour 2017.
Starts with a good blast of butterscotch and bourbon. The liquor tones down and a creme brûlée burnt sugar smell comes out. Low throw but good wear length as I could still smell it this morning.

Good choice and introduction. for my first order.
