Sixteen92; This is Just to Say

I have eaten
the plums
that were in
the icebox

and which
you were probably
saving
for breakfast

Forgive me
they were delicious
so sweet
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.
