SOTD – Be Mine & Morderteile Kelah
Be Mine is the smell of a thousand heart-shaped cinnamon red-hots sprinkled liberally on buttercream-frosted cupcakes, accompanied by a bowl of punch, cups of coffee and tea; all served at an antique wooden table laden with roses, jasmine and orange blossoms; the perfect Valentine’s Day afternoon teatime treat.
Amber, hyacinth, milk and strawberry jam, brewing in a batch of double-barrel scotch, aged 12 years.
I’m not usually a fan of “foodie” smells but gosh this smells good. At first this combination smells almost like apple pie, the cinnamon is really strong, then it mellows out and smells musky, and sweet with a touch of amber. It makes me feel like I’m having a picnic in the middle of meadow in the summer, where I’m not dying of heat or breaking out all over from grass allergies.
You can find Be Mine from OHWTO as a solid scent for $2.80 or as a perfume oil for $7.20. It’s on clearance as it’s a Valentine’s Day fragrance. Morderteile Kelah is currently un-released from Darling Clandestine but will be available in solid scent soon.
