Shop description: “A combination of avocado, sea salt, blackberry, plums, and hints of fresh green grass. Don’t let the avocado scare you, this is a nice fresh scent!”

My opinions: I don’t get much of the avocado, honestly. It’s there, but barely. As far as the sea salt, it is not a note I can pick up on at all on it’s own, but it does seem to tamper the fruits. I get quite a bit of the fruit scents, but I’m unable to distinguish the blackberry and plums independently (this may be due to a lack of memory on what plums smell like). The fruit I pick up on is an generic berry scent, but it’s not overly sweet or artificial. It maintains a slightly puckered quality. As far as the green grass, I hardly pick up on that at all.

Longevity: I would call this a good medium longevity. On my skin, this scent lasts for 13+ hours; however, after a couple hours, the throw is reduced to very low.

Sillage and throw: Moderate to start, but goes to very low quickly.

Where this scent takes me: I’m in a pretty sundress. It’s about 10 in the morning, and I’m outside in a huge garden. Instead of dirt underneath my feet, however, I see wild grass. This garden has all kinds of fruits growing. I’m standing in the shade of an unidentified tree, my sunhat flopping around my ears. All around me, I see berry patches.

When I would wear this: To me, this feels more of a day time summer scent, and that’s how I’ve been enjoying this.

Would I purchase a larger size of this scent? I probably would, yes, but I’m not sure when. I think I would like to get either a body mist or spray perfume over the oil dabber on this one.

    I keep reading that by the time you are 30 you need to have an adult fragrance and not wander around leaving wafts of sweet pea behind like a damn teenager, so I’m really committed to “smelling my age” although I’m not going to use that sentence ever again, because it doesn’t sound very appealing, does it?

      It’s a good thing I have 7 more years to play 😉 to be fair, I think a lot of our fragrance associations with age come from what was popular at certain time periods. My grandma has had the same perfume “type” since the 50s-while it now smells like a woman in her elderly years, in the 50s it probably smelled like a woman in her late 20s!

        I’ve never been one to let others tell me what is “acceptable” with my own body. Unless I’m smelling offensive, idgaf what others think of my perfume as long as I like it! Honestly, I don’t think cotton candy will ever be “too young” for you as long as you don’t DRENCH yourself in it to wear it is sickening to those around you 🙂
