It won’t be too long here before we feel a bit of fall, and its focus on apples. In fact, in late September or October, we often look forward to a trip up to the mountains, visiting various apple barns along the way. Stewed, baked apples are a favorite dish of mine, and a good caramel apple never fails to hit the spot.
In fact, for a super-indulgent treat, I love Mrs. Prindables’ chocolate and caramel covered apples and often give them as gifts (they are a special favorite of my lovely mother-in-law). So yummy! And though they are huge, they do make sets of three smaller ones, so those are easier to cut up and deal with, and also to share.
But back to fragrance. One of my scent loves in the ‘80s was Folies Bergere, which was sultry and sexy, but freshened with an amazing note of tart green apple which I adored. Later on I tried one of DKNY’s Be Delicious apple-centric scents, which I liked fairly well. Others which have scratched my itch include L’Artisan’s Traversee du Bosphore and By Kilian’s Apple Brandy. And I think Roberto Cavalli’s Oro had a touch of the fruit in it as well. But haven’t sniffed much of anything apple as of late. So now I’m ripe (pardon the pun) for a new scent with apple in it.
I have not tried the Aventus for men, but certainly will while I’m in there sniffing the women’s very soon. Maybe I’ll find a new apple to love.
Are there other apple-containing scents out there that I need to try? What are your apple favorites?
