Lunar Amulet for November 13, 2012

This batch of solid perfume was made on Halloween, and an appropriate scent inspiration accompanied the festivities; the Caramel Apple. There is no way to derive scent from apples, so the interpretive concoction borrows the sweet fruity notes from a select combination of sweet blossoms to recreate the "apple", and even more sweet, sugary flowers are blended with vanilla, peru balsam, and tonka to recreate the caramel coating.

This is a really strange scent to wear - and if you are a lover of sweets this will suit you. I usually prefer savory scents instead of sweet, so when I wear this one I will be layering it over something darker. This smells AMAZING mixed with the Amber single note, and can also layer well with Rose, Tonka, and Black Forest Cake.

  1. Hey I bet that perfume smells amazing, although I imagine it could make me very hungry! What an original scent to concoct.

    I'm just back from Paris, where I wore my signature scent Zing! by L'Artisan Parfumier.
