  1. a slightly sweet fruity pumpkin & dry hay/grass scent. peach and hay/grass dominate on me, but I can catch a sweetened pumpkin underneath it. Warm and comforting for me; one of my favorites.

  2. For the first few minutes, I was basically a giant hay bale, and there was a real uh oh moment (do I amp hay like I do tree and incense? Am I just doomed to smell like hay, PineSol, and sketchy head shops?). But! Then the peach and spice kicked in, the hay faded to a nice not-gonna-attract-barnyard-animals background level, and everything was much improved.

    On me, this is a spicy, extremely autumnal scent. The peach and clove are sharp and dry rather than sweet, but the amber comes across as pure smoky caramel. I sometimes weirdly turn pumpkin notes into curry, and that’s definitely the case here, but it’s not unpleasant? And on the drydown, the hay and herbs lend a nicely atmospheric outdoorsy quality.

    All in all, after the initial HAAAAAAY crisis, I do like this perfume. I get the hype now — this really does scream fall, like I legit smell like walking around outside on an early October afternoon (but also a little like a cool unisex cologne from the 90s? In a good way?).

  3. I mostly got cooked peaches with nutmeg and a bit of clove. I couldn’t smell pumpkin at all. The wear was 2-3 hours for this one.
