Scent Name: You’re in a Cult, Call your Dad
Manufacturer: Sucreabeille – My Favorite Murder
Scent Description and Notes: “Look, you have been through a lot. First your friend Karen is telling you about this wonderful resort out in Florida (it’s always Florida) and next thing you know you’re in a white robe praying to an Elvis look-a-like. Now you didn’t drink the Kool-Aid for too long and you did the right thing: You called your dad. This scent is as close as you can get to being back home after a mind melting experience: warm flannel pajamas, the old tree in your front yard, a cup of steaming black tea, and snickerdoodle cookies – a lot like having tea and cookies at home and never calling Karen again.
Scent notes: Flannel, Sedona trees, Bergamot tea, snickerdoodle cookies.” -https://sucreabeille.com/products/youre-in-a-cult-call-your-dad
Oil Color: Colorless.
Bottle Design and Artwork: The scent comes in a brown screw-top dram bottle. The label is black with the url and logo of the company centered in very small white font along the bottom of the label. The name of the collection is along the top of the label in white type-writer font. Below that is the name of the scent in cut-out ransom note-like letters in colors of white, red, and black. All of this is framed by Art Deco designs.
- ITB: That is sweet, sugary cookies with heaps of vanilla. There’s a hint of flannel and something that’s a bit bitter, too, which might be the sedona tree note, although I’m not very familiar with the smell of a sedona tree.
- Wet: Now that it’s on my skin, the bergamot tea is apparent, thankfully, as it tames the wildly sweet snickerdoodle cookie note. The flannel is much clearer now, as well, cozy and clean. I’m not getting as much of the bitter note now, but there is a something that vaguely reminds me of cypress far in the distance.
- Dry: Okay, I had written this off initially, but the dry down is worth the wait! I’m getting all things cozy with the combination of bergamot tea, flannel, and wood notes with a warm vanilla cookie undertone that only enhances the coziness of the scent. All that is missing is a fire and I’d immediately be transported to a quiet evening in a cabin. After several hours, warm flannel, bergamot tea and a hint of vanilla cookies lingers in the distance. Nice.
Other Impressions: “It smells like Thai basil, fish sauce, and Twinkies.” -Tony
