Next up on my mixology creations, the apple and vanilla combination I have termed Vanapple.
The Scent: The scent is subtle – like a sweetened apple dessert. It reminded me a bit of Sugared Apple from Yankee Candle. The creamy vanilla is almost custard-like and cuts through the sharpness from the fresh apple. It works, yet was not as seamless as I would have hoped. It did not remind me of a particular dessert (aka, I never got that ‘this smells just like…” feeling). It smelled liked I had just combined apple and vanilla instead of transforming into a new scent like a few of the mixologys I’ve tried. Overall, it was just okay. B-
The Throw: The throw was terrible. Because Vanilla Cupcake already had such a weak throw, I think it diluted the Fuji Apple throw. So the result was barely any vanilla throw and a weakened apple throw. It was overall on the light side and very forgettable. D
Overall, Vanapple was a great idea in my head, it just did not execute the way I had hoped. The scent was rather lackluster, but still pleasant, and the throw was terrible.
