Forbidden Delight

Post by Boudicca »

Possets description: Take a lacy brown sugar cookie, the kind which cools off almost like a brittle, dunk it in whiskey. Wow, that is sooooo good.

This may be my fav foody ever. I know that's not overly helpful, but travel shock etc disclaimer applies here too.
If you like the Gingerbreads and/or Betsy I think you will want this one too.

Dangit. Dangit. Dangit. I was steering away from this one, and you just put it right up on my next order list.

Maya, did you try Faith from the Paradise collection? This, to me, has a similar "spicy baked goods" note. It's dry. I think cloves have something to do with it but you don't just think, "duh, cloves" when you smell it. In the bottle, it has this, um, pastry note? similar to Faith. I think you would like this one. It reminds me of another Posset but I won't say just yet cuz I don't want to prejudice anyone.

Trying this again. The perfume and the attempt to post something about it.
It's not complicated, it is just YUM! Foody. Sugar and spice. Actually, there is enough spice to keep it from being anywhere near too sweet. (I just wanted to say "Sugar and spice)."
But it is* so good. So good that I won't go overboard with the exclaimation points. It speaks for itself. Dry, spicy, lovely... and yes, yummy. Quite decent throw and lasts well.
Try it!
It's on my list of candidates for the vote.

What kind of spice is it? like cinnamon? ginger?
The original description involved whiskey only.

Chime, I'm getting such a similar note with this and Faith -- cloves. Though it's not listed as a note here. It's ... the way it works on my skin. It's baked goods and booze though not really boozy. Whiskey with a cookie. No, the spicy cookie is first. Cookie with whiskey. I'm really enjoying this one. Also one of those scents that feel "cozy" in the Winter.

Did you try Bird's Nest in a Cowl? If so, how does this compare to that?
