Seriously?? I will send you some candied pecans with a sample of one of my favorites.
I keep saying that I really like Woodland Strawberries
, but I ended up purchasing a bottle of Prowl
. And I am not really quite sure why I did that, except that Prowl is probably the first scent that has patchouli that I just really really liked for some reason. It probably has to do with the vanilla in it. But anyway, those are my two favorite scents of his, both of which are a little on the foody side.
And surprisingly, neither of them did I anticipate I would like. But I can say that about *ALL* of my current favorite scents. In fact, my current favorite scents, I was pretty much poised to hate when I first tried them. Maybe that's why I like them so much, because they rearranged the way I thought.Woodland Strawberries
I thought would be a fruity floral or something. It's not. I think I read in older forum posts that Woodland Strawberries has several different versions, some fruitier than others. The earlier versions were named "Gala." I'm not sure which version I have. I'm guessing it's the latest version, which isn't really fruity to me, so much as sandalwoody. And I love sandalwood, almost as much as I love vanilla. Woodland Strawberries has much woods, including cedar as well as the sandalwood. It does have some strawberry, but it's not particularly Jolly Rancher strawberry or anything. At least not this version. I'm guessing earlier versions may be more fruity, from what I read in older posts about Gala.Prowl
. Vanilla, patchouli, and flowers.
Some say there's tea in here. I guess I can smell some tea. But I mostly get flowers, like jasmine. I think both Nukapai and SMM mentioned in another thread that there is some similarity to Rumba, which I have a sample of and *STILL* haven't compared with it. I should do that tomorrow, eh?
