The Height of Impropriety

Possets description: An unashamed Possets exquisite gourmandy fragrance. Butter, cream, and a slight whiff of strawberry pie, a heaping tablespoon of pure sugar, a light dusting of cinnamon, and the background of a highly refined tea note.

Foody fragrances are frequently described as if they are a bit naughty, that is because they are. Foodies don't make any bones about being a sensuous thing, something which exists for the lure of it all. Just as Isabella in the novel lives a life of impropriety...but she succeeds after all...or does she? :)

I love the strawberry in this one! I can't get it to stick around that long, this may go into the scent lockets.

In the bottle this has the same "baked good" note that is in Rabbitas, and in mrs. rabbits pie and the entire vibe is very Tisane of the witch", if you are familiar to that one. Strawberry is almost undetectable (but there), and I didn't smell any cinammon.

The closest description is rabbitas but NOT tart, without the rhubarb.

Unfortunately, this goes bad on my skin (the aforementioned go bad on my skin as well, so it's keeping with the trend).

It is very strong though, with a decent throw.

Very bakery-gourmand, but not as buttery or toffeeish as many Possets foodies. Sweet and a bit spicy, but in a dry way, more baked goods than candy. I don't get much strawberry from the pie, unfortunately. Maybe if I added just a dot of Strawberry Heart? I don't get much tea, either, but I hardly ever do.
To be honest, this reminds me a lot of the scent of cinnamon graham crackers.
