Grand Theft Pumpkin

Take a walk on the wild side with dark musky resins and blends not of this world beautiful. It pays to be wicked.

On me, the spice trumps the pumpkin. But, I still haven't had it on my skin for more than an hour.
I've got a dab on the back of my hand. I'll let you know if it changes over the evening.

It's entirely possible that my skin amps the spice, though, so it'll be good to get others' takes.
I'm not at all surprised :grin: You and I seem to be polar opposites on everything. That's ok though, variety is the "spice" of life isn't it? :leaves:

Good to hear more takes on it, thanks for answering Boudicca. Anyone else have an opinion to add as well?

This one, to me, is very similar to BBC in the spice vibe/area/amount/whatever.
If you can't be a success, be a spectacular failure!

Oh ok, that's a good comparison Maya. That wouldn't work for me then if they are similar. BBC wasn't good on me. Thanks for letting me know.

My search for the holy grail of pumpkins lives on :-)

LOL! Well, at least if you've figured out the pattern exists, my posts can still be useful to you! :hug:

Oh, this is *good*. The pumpkin is definitely cooked pumpkin - it has that kind of richness - but it's not as sweet to my nose as the pumpkin note in a lot of BPAL's stuff. The musk is soft and snuggly, not cologny. The spices are definitely there, but not super strong - they don't turn my wrist pink or turn the whole production into a cinnamon candle. It's not terribly sweet - a bit more like really good baked winter squash with spices than pumpkin pie filling. It's autumnal, cozy, and foody without going overboard.
