My Oven is Cold and Dirty, Yet A Warm Apple Pie is Baking
Lann-Ael is the perfect Autumnal Scent in my opinion. It is cozy, spicy yet soft and gently sweetened, not cloying. It Starts off in the first few minutes like Burberry for Women Classic, but without the pears and more forward cooked apple and stewed peach notes (in their own natural juices, not in a heavy syrup) surrounded by a gentle vanilla musk and milky base. Some may perceive this as a buckwheat note, but since I eat buckwheat cereal fairly frequently, I have to say, I don't sense it in here. Instead, I submit that there is a delectable cinnamon vanilla spice note with a golden brown warm, pastry crust accord, all very naturally done-bravo! This definitely reminds me of a delicious apple pie baking in the oven. It is warm and as it heats up on my skin is gives a delicate spicy skin scent with a touch of cloves and clean musk. This is the perfect fruit-fly catching, snuggle-inducing, cozy fireside attractant scent...I would imagine that when layered with the matching shower gel and body lotion, this last for 12-16 hours. Alone- it is about 3-4 hours of yumminess. In truth, I am sample this again after many years because I remember it was one of only 3-4 fragrances that ever caused people to follow me around trying to get in close for an extra sniff and also very positive snuggling responses from the kitties, puppies and DH. They just want to gobble me up! Now I have entirely forgotten how dirty I left the kitchen and I no longer feel guilty for not actually making that apple pie tonight...this stuff is great!
