Solstice Scents Foxcroft's Autumn Festival Limited Edition Perfume Oil (Limited)
Apple Pastries, Caramel Apples, Fresh Apples, Warm Apple Cider, Vanilla, Apple Pie, Apple Cream Cheese Danish
Corvin's Apple Fest celebrates all the wonderful desserts that can be made with their orchard apples during an annual festival that takes place outdoors in the crisp autumn air. A vast offering of apple pastries, caramel apples, fresh apples stored in wooden crates, warm apple cider, apple cream cheese danishes and apple pie with notes of sugar, vanilla and spices.
A burst of fresh apples paired with soft nuances of cider spices greets you on initial application. Within a few minutes, the fresh apple top note dissipates, giving way to the vanilla, pastry, golden pie crust, sugar and butter weaving around the warm cider. Spices of cinnamon, clove and ginger root are present but not heavy and dominant; they are tempered greatly by the bakery notes. After about 15 minutes, the cider recedes and the caramel note emerges. The fresh apple note is faint at this stage and will continue to soften. Within 20 minutes, the apple top note is muted. Apple is a top note and therefore a fleeting one. The apple accord is delicious while it lasts. It is a blend of natural essences and fragrance oils intended to capture fresh pressed apples. The dry down features a blend of caramel, vanilla, white sugar and golden buttery pastries that envelop all of the home baked goods at the apple fest. The spices remain present yet delicate. A faint trace of apple will be caught every now and again through the next hour or more. A very faint wood accord is added to the blend to represent the wooden crates the fresh apples are stored in for the festival. The wood is greatly overcome by the baked goods and apple notes and is a supporting rather than feature note. It should be undetectable or only vaguely detectable to most noses, as intended.
Corvin's Apple Fest is a soft, sweet, feminine gourmand that wears closer to the skin and should be appropriate for work settings since it has a lower sillage. It has the uncanny ability to occasionally catch you off guard wondering what smells so good, just when you forgot you were wearing it. Caramel is the most prominent note at the base of the dry down. The wood note is most apparent during this time but it is only for a short while before disappearing again. This fragrance is in a similar family to Sycamore Sugarworks and Kitchen but very much its own scent. It focuses more on the "white" notes (white sugar, vanilla, butter, pastry) than brown notes such as brown sugar and maple syrup with the notable exception of caramel.
