Pixie Sorceror an interesting mix of sweet and bitter notes, and smells like sweetened fruity coffee in the pot. On the skin in the shower the sweet pomegranate is more apparent, but the scent that lingers most on the skin afterwards is the coffee/incense note. It reminds me of Who Needs Love from the Valentine's 2011 collection, although without the chocolate. I like this a lot in the Bubbling Scrub, but it would be too sweet for me in the Pumpkin Butter. If you liked Who Needs Love, this one is worth trying.
Olde Cider Haus is described as 'Old Oak, sweet drying hay fields, crushed apple pulp and vanilla husks.'
Olde Cider Haus gets a surprise thumbs up from me. I ordered it out of curiosity in the trial size Pumpkin Butter, not expecting to love it; I'm not a big fan of apple scents, and Hearth from last Yule's collection wasn't a favourite of mine. Olde Cider Haus is a dry cider; the apple isn't candied or too sweet and gives a freshness to the overall blend, nicely supported by the dry wood/hay notes. The vanilla adds subtle warmth and creaminess without sweetness. I'm wearing this with Horse Cologne from For Strange Women (which is a hay/leather/smoky musk blend) and it's a lovely combination; I smell like the end of summer, and as summer seems to be having a last hurrah in the UK it's very appropriate.
