Chicago Pajamas

by

08th January, 2000

At the end of a cold day, when you’ve given your all just to fight through wind and snow, it’s bliss to kick back in flannel pajamas and take warm comfort food.

Chicago Pajamas is imagined as a gourmand fragrance utilizing some of the following notes: rice, cream, cinnamon, peach, apricot, raisins, caramel, praline,

vanilla. For contrast or interest, other elements could be used: cedar, rum, amaretto, hazelnut, graham, cardamom, nutmeg, coconut, dates.

The trick would be not making the scent too sweet, but instead creamy. Other notes

to consider: white amber, immortelle flower, powder, musk.

*Chicago Pajamas (aka Chitown PJs or CPJs) might need a renaming, given that Basenotes’ fragrances will hail from the U.K., but I didn’t know your equivalent to America’s “Windy City” — so feel free to play with the name.

Recipes to reference

Pralines (as Americans use the word): sugar, brown

sugar, cream, butter, pecans, vanilla.
