I have eaten
that were in
you were probably
they were delicious
and so cold
– William Carlos Williams
☾ Notes: cake flour, cocoa powder, osmanthus, plum & apricot jam, tonka bean, dried fruits, tangled vines ☽
A cold sniff from the bottle suggests dark chocolate cake, a thick and rich scent.
Wet on the skin, I got a mixture of osmanthus flower and chocolate, a bit jammy underneath the cocoa powder. Sweet, slightly fruity and almost powdery, perhaps one would imagine a white snowy landscape, with the hints of tiny buds opening in the snow? The dry down reveals more fruit, amping up the sweetness.
Unfortunately, This is Just to Say has a low throw and slightly above average longevity on the skin.
