This evening, I've been enjoying African Morning Dew from Baobab Collection.
I picked up their collection of votives on clearance at NM after Christmas (what can I say, I'm a sucker for a sampler pack, and I'm a sucker for a sale as well...).
One word of warning about these Baobab votives (I'm talking about the votives, not the full-size candle in the picture): The wicks aren't attached to anything at the base, not even a little metal piece like they usually are even in votives, so if you burn them long enough for the wax to melt, the wicks fall in and the whole candle is ruined if you don't catch it in time and the wick is lost in the hardened wax, which is really shabby quality for candles this expensive. Seriously, it's pretty much a big rip-off. So, I've been burning this carefully, for only a few minutes at a time. As such, I'd never recommend these to anybody, but I bought them, so I might as well report on the smells...
African Morning Dew is based largely on that familiar mix of basenotes that are used in so many current fruity floral designer perfumes. It's kind of ambery, kind of woody, and kind of creamy, but really mostly a synthetic mix of all those elements. If you've smelled Balmain's Amber Gris, it's very much based on this accord. To this, African Morning Dew adds a big slug of peach and takes things out of fruity floral territory with a nice hit of cinnamon. It's pleasant and smells like an expensive current designer perfume, but I'm not sure how that represents the smell of dew. Anyway, it smells good, but the design flaw of the un-secured wick makes it kind of lame.
