Scent Description: Pumpkin pie & lavender.
Womp womp. This went straight powder on me, just a little sweet but nothing else. Too bad.
This is a really interesting combination. I heard about some study where lavender and pumpkin were the two scents most likely to “excite” men, so I imagine that’s where the name comes from? I get more lavender than pumpkin, so I’d say this is a unique scent to try if you like lavender and are about to go out on a hot date.

Herbal, spicy, and perplexing. Lavender, pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, and ginger.
The lavender is herbal, but soft not sharp. The pumpkin note seems cooked, yet oddly unsweetened and unpleasantly waxy as well. The spices are present, but do not take over the scent.
This didn’t sound like an enjoyable combination of notes, and honestly…. it’s as discordant as I imagined it would be. The notes clash horribly (in my opinion, of course). If the pumpkin note weren’t so strange, this might have worked better. I dunno.
HELLL NO, but maybe for someone interested in unusual, incongruous note combinations.
The lavender is dominant in the bottle. The pumpkin comes out some when I put it on. I like it well enough. I don’t get the name though because nothing about this says sex to me. I’ve heard that about pumpkin, but lavender doesn’t have that association for me AT ALL. It’s comforting and calming. I’d wear it to bed… to sleep. I wanted to try this because ever since I saw the notes in it, I’ve been layering a lavender lotion I was gifted with a single-note pumpkin lotion I rarely use (never in a million years would have thought of that combo), and it’s helped me use them both up. As a perfume, this just isn’t doing anything for me. I’m really enjoying the pumpkin note when I can smell it through the lavender, so it’s got that going for it. When it becomes straight pumpkin at the end, I’m loving it… so I could have done without the lavender altogether! Pumpkin gets a big yes, but lavender gets a personal meh, so… pass.
50/50 Punmpkin Pie & Lavender. Exactly as described. It sounds like it wouldn’t work, but it does. It’s cozy and spicy and yummy.
