Oil Color: Clear.
Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a decanted imp. It features the collection name and notes on the back of the label and a copy of the label art on front:
- ITI: Whew boy, is that sweet. That’s definitely cardamom, rich and spicy, folded into gobs of sweet cream, topped with plenty of pumpkin spices. . There’s also a bit of sweet cakiness (like pumpkin bread or an Old Fashioned donuts) underneath all the rich spices.
- Wet: Damn, the cardamom almost burns my eyes. That’s definitely cardamom pumpkin cake.
- Dry: Four hours later, the scent is vanilla-infused heavy cream with only the dusty remains of once-faded cardamom. I actually like this much better now that it has time to settle. It’s just a little too cloying when freshly applied and during the first couple hours of dry-down.
