65: arcana schnaps mit krampus


schnaps_mit_krampusAnother Krampus-y scents I picked up from this Arcana collection: Schnaps Mit Krampus!

If Krampus comes to your house, you’d best pass him the bottle. A boozy, rummy blend of apple, tangerine, and pear schnaps over woodsmoke, labdanum, and a hint of Arcana’s Growl blend.

In the bottle, Schnaps Mit Krampus smells like fruit, smoke, and booze. There’s something vaguely potpourri-ish about it.

Wet on skin, it smells like I stuck my face into a bowl of potpourri. It’s all dry, spicy fruits.

After a few minutes, the fruits get a little juicier, and a tiny bit fizzy and boozy. The citrus and apple are most prominent. There’s a wisp of woodsmoke too, adding to the dry, spicy tone.

Honestly, though? It pretty much still smells like potpourri to me. My skin does amp spice, which I’m sure is contributing to that, because I’ve seen other reviews where this reads more sparkly and fruity. Alas. It’s not bad, but it’s not really something I want to smell like, either.

Elevator Pitch: A dry, spicy fruit blend – boozy, a little bit fizzy, with a touch of smoke. Or, pretty much like sticking your face in a bowl of potpourri.
