This scent is amazing. It is a Indian rice pudding (kheer) in perfume form. It opens with a sharp Iris, which is rare, and settles into a comforting ginger vanilla. It's hard to acquire bottles of these beauties, but I found that Earthen Treasures has a close copy, and affordable. I wish I had the time and money to track down the original.

I am heart broken right now... I have just fallen head over heals with this scent. I am in love! I just received a sample of CdG sticky cake from a sweet swapper, and right before I opened my little vial, I thought to myself "this is gonna be bad if I like it too much...". It is very hard to find, but life is too short, I thought. I tried it on my skin and oh boy, this is the most …Read more

I normally am not a particularly big fan of bakery inspired fragrances (although I DO love vanilla notes), but this fragrance really just blew me away. It consists of top notes of almonds, honey, pistachio, and dates; middle notes of milk and brown sugar, and ending notes of ambrette seeds, cereal, and myrhh. It's sweet without being cloying and is definitely somewhat sexy. I'm not …Read more

I got a sample of this and when I tried it I got a hairspray smell that after drydown became a faint sweet smell. Maybe I got a bad sample or maybe it's just me--my chemistry. Anyway, oddly enough I let my husband smell it and he said he thought it smelled really good, go figure. So I'll put it aside and try again later. :)

This is a super-sweet, super-sweet, super-sweet incensey scent. You must like the sweet. Dries down to a sort of candy-iris. Fun to wear once in a while.

My husband said ‘smells like church.” Probably the myrrh. It reminds me of Indian rice pudding: Rice, rose and honey. The cereal is very prominent, but it’s still somehow perfume. I like it very much but the price seems pretty steep for something that smells a lot like perfume-y food. I will look for a decant for sure and consider coughing up the money, but it will take some serious …Read more

I don't understand sticky cake necessarily but I really like it.

the bottle is nice too. I got a mine for only $20 it was one of those kind of compulsive purchases and I immediately set about decanting from it but fortunately only one got away before I realized I needed to save this ALL for myself. It's not gonna last forever in that tiny bottle either.

It's …

I frigging love this. Rarely does a scent come along to sweep you off your feet this quickly--it was instantaneous and I have not had this reaction in a long time. It has made me realize that I love iris/orris whatever with all my heart and soul when it is blended with notes other than wood. Thank you CDG! All the other irises have been choking me lately, even dear old Bois d'iris is too …Read more

Along with Wood Coffee, this is another of my favorite scents. This scent, on me, is almond cut with a little sweet cake scent. It's a comforting, sweet and homey scent that I absolutely love and I wear it when I need to feel safe and warm. After falling in love with the original and then almost dying when I saw the price, I got a wonderful dupe that smells exactly like the original but …Read more

Hmmm....POTL minus the woods and smokiness and heavier on the plastic. I detect lots of plastic, almond extract/marzipan, lipstick, and a strange vanilla cherry element --- as waxy & synthetic as this is, it's surprisingly pleasing. I don't find this foody at all despite the name. I actually think of this Strawberry Shortcake plastic figurine that I had back in the 80's that I …Read more
