Cherry Pipe Tobacco Surprise
The pleasant surprise awaited me with Boum Vanille Sa Pomme d’Amour. Now this one has some substance to it. As I sit here writing this seven hours later, I still can smell this enjoyable fragrance on my arm. Boum Vanille is definitely not for the faint of heart, either. It is sweet. Not necessarily candy-like sweet, although that’s the first impression.
When I first sprayed it, I thought candy apples. And I wondered how could anyone want to smell like a candy apple? But then within minutes the drydown began and I was pleasantly surprised. This perfume began to mellow down into a very pleasant cherry pipe tobacco type fragrance that is wonderful for the colder weather. The vanilla seems to sit inside the tobacco while the musk lends credence to this perfume’s solidarity. I can see myself wearing it when the weather turns brisk again next year, when snow begins to fall, and when the fireplace is going during the holidays. It’s that kind of perfume.
It lasts for hours, which for the price point of 9.99, is incredible. The bottle size is 3.4 oz with a cheesy little plastic sprayer that if you’re not too careful can easily pop off and break, so beware. But the juice inside is well worth it.
As a matter of fact, it reminds me very much of Royal Apothic Edwardian Fireplace. If you’re looking for a unisex scent that talks to you of a pipe tobacco, this is it, albeit packaged in pink. It’s not cloying at all. It can be strong depending on how it’s sprayed, but again, for the season, it’s a delight. Or, consider this a rainy day tobacco perfume. This floral-fruity certainly has it’s uses. But I can see why one would enjoy this perfume. It's different.
Again, try before you buy if you can.
