Sweet Pumpkin, Cinnamon, Gingerbread Whipped Cream & A Drop of Nutmeg

Offered as part of the Autumn Collection annually in Perfume and Ganache.

Description: This caffeinated concoction starts with fresh roasted pumpkin spice coffee ground and brewed as an espresso. Monin Gingerbread syrup, frothy steamed milk and fresh made gingerbread whipped cream dusted with cinnamon and freshly grated nutmeg complete it.

The perfume is a blend of coffee essential and fragrance oils, sweet pumpkin, gingerbread whipped cream, cinnamon and a drop of nutmeg essential oil. Upon application, coffee is the first note to emerge, immediately followed by a spicy cinnamon. After just a few minutes a sweet syrupy scent emerges. The true dry down scent rises after about 15 - 20 minutes on the skin at which point the spice mellows and the coffee, pumpkin and cream all perfectly swim together in a pleasingly balanced brew.

Fall..... My favorite time of year! Pumpkin spice latte! My favorite drink!!!!!!! This was a must have for me.... This is very true to its name... When wet I do smell coffee, when dry that coffee takes a backseat and i smell all the divine spices that make me love fall so much!!!!!!!! Like Harvest Moon, this is a scent I will use all year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I apply it to my clothes just because it does have cinnamon in it and my skin is too crazy sensitive so just in case I use the roll on on my clothes..... Actually I do that with all my perfumes cinnamon or not, just this one especially... It really does smell divine! After the initial coffee scent dries I smell more of a pumpkin pie mix of spice but possibly some vanilla or cream to soften it and not make it overpowering..?

I wore this today and everyone that crossed my path loved it and had to tell me! I wear this when I am tempted to buy a Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks (I can't have espresso...) and it really makes my day. Nothing is overpowering, and everything is blended so well. I love it.

Cross-posted from the green:

I decided to test the Pumpkin Spice Latte perfume sample, and it's true to Angela's description (which I love and find very helpful, btw). I would have enjoyed it more in a wash-off product like soap if it were available since the coffee note is very strong.

A nice fall scent fitting the season. The coffee note is strong, and maybe it could be a little less sweet (but then it wouldnt be latte?). I enjoy wearing it.

This perfume makes me want to lick myself.

Yeah, I said it.

Is a further description really needed? Wink

This actually smells a lot like maple oatmeal to me. It's a very comforting cold weather scent.

I received a sample of this with my first Solstice Scents order. Sadly, I'm not much of a coffee person or 'Pumpkin Spice' fan in general - its the type of flavor that is too sweet or too heavy on the clove. And as a fragrance it is almost always too sweet, to the point where it makes me a little nauseous.

This is not true of 'Pumpkin Spice Latte'. While it may not be my thing, even I can appreciate this blend. The coffee and the spice are perfectly balanced (though it might be a little heavier on the coffee, which I prefer). The dry down reveals a hint of vanilla and just the right amount of sweetness.

If you are the type of person who wants to smell like your favorite seasonal Starbucks beverage, even if you've been disappointed by other pumpkin blends in the past, this one it really worth trying.

I love fall, and I love Pumpkin Spice Lattes. I've been on a search for a true Pumpkin Spice Latte scent for a while and haven't found...until now. THIS is IT!

It smells like I just poured the best pumpkin spice latte all over me and walked out the door. Perfect coffee, pumpkin, and spice balance. So in love. Thrilled beyond thrilled. Thank you for knocking this one out of the ball park. I love you

I have this in the ganache, and it's lovely. Surprisingly, it has a lingering throw, so it's good to know I can use it for layering scent! I was wearing a little Pumpkin Spice Latte ganache on my legs, with Kitchen perfume on my wrists, and salesperson asked me whether or not it was me that smelled like cinnamon and that it smelled really nice. The scent is invigorating, cozy, and delicious!

Be prepared to lick yourself! If you love Pumpkin Spice Lattes like I do anyway, this will be for you!

This is very true to the autumnal drink. This perfume is also good as a layering perfume with a good throw.

Espresso, pumpkin, and spices...yum!

Did a death match between my PSL and Café Mallowmel samples to see who would be the caffeinated victor. The pumpkin spices definitely give PSL a darker, more autumnal feel, but I think I personally prefer CM. Spices in general tend to get a little overpowering for me after a while, but this will be lovely for all the spice girls out there.

I've tried other pumpkin latte oils from other retailers, but i consider the SS one to be the best as it's perfectly balanced. The coffee is not overpowering or over-roasted and isn't drowning out the spices, which i can easily make out; and the amount of sweetness is just right. The scent is low to medium throw and not overpowering. I'm happy i got a full bottle Smile

I was not holding out high hopes for this, because pumpkin and cinnamon are always so iffy on my skin (hello cinnamon overload and holiday spice candles). This is almost good on me, though, at first. Lots of buttery cinnamon that dries down to buttery red hots cinnamon candies, but I really like the coffee here. Warm, toasty, roasted coffee beans. The earthiness of the coffee tries to calm down the extreme spice and sweetness of the cinnamon. I can smell the coffee for about 15 minutes, and I really try to like this, but the cinnamon eventually wins out and that's all I can smell, and it's so strong and overwhelming...

Too much cinnamon for me.
