Pilgrims Pie - '. . . a scrumptious, highly complex accord beginning with top notes of pumpkin and lemon; with middle notes of champagne, grapes, nutmeg, and smoked cinnamon; and rounded out with base notes of vanilla, tea leaves, and hickory.'
I don't know what happened. In my cold sniff thoughts from my haul post, I liked this and said there was no weirdness from the hickory (among other things). When I melted this though, I freakin' hated it. I couldn't even let it go much more than an hour. The smoked wood note, the hickory, was pretty much all I got. You might already know that I'm not a fan of 'smoke' notes like in bonfire or fireside type scents, and I'm not a wood scent fan. I'm also iffy on tea scents, so if anything was making it past the overpowering smoked hickory notes it was probably the tea leaves, and it was all just yuck for me.
I melted this entire 1.1 oz. tart in my tea light warmer and had great scent strength and throw, which was a relief since my previous tart from CFTKR was way too light. Too bad I just couldn't stomach this particular scent. I let it go for at least an hour, hoping other notes would come through, but in the end I just had to blow out the tea light and get rid of this one. Bummer.
If you like the smoke-type scents, you might still like this one. They are just not for me.
