Autumn Afternoon Stroll featuring Golden Oak Leaves, and Apples & Acorns
[no scent description]
I bought this knowing I might not like it, but for blogging purposes anyway. I'm pretty sure the Golden Oak Leaves part of this combo is the same as Crisp Autumn Leaves, which I don't like. I thought the Apples & Acorns part might add enough to it to make it likable for me, but nope. I probably should have saved myself the trouble and only melted the Apples & Acorns cubes. The thing that kills the Leaves scent is the strong pine note. I used to think there was musk too but this year it's striking me as just strong pine. And it is strong! It doesn't strike me as a Christmas pine scent though, so there must be other elements to it. I do get a slight woody or resin type note. I can't even say for sure what the Apples & Acorns part smelled like on it's own. It's so much lighter than the
pine leaves side. Sniffing the empty clamshell as I write this, there is a light apple note, and a hint of something almost peppery.
I melted two cubes from each side, combined in my Glade hot plate warmer and had super strong scent. It would have been fabulous being this strong if it had been a scent I actually liked. With this one though, I had to turn the warmer off after only about an hour.
I'll have to remember to skip this one next fall.
