A Comforting Cuppa
You're walking down a cold street in Manchester, listening to Joy Division, sipping on a warm cup of London Fog. This fragrance epitomizes the dim charm of the English Isle, summed up in a cuppa that overflows with a smooth sweetness. Earl Grey tea is delightfully tannic, perhaps the one hard-edged entity throughout this scent, besides lemon. The tea's translucent, sepia bite is adorned with the bittersweet tangy perfection of bergamot. Lemon reinforces the acid satisfaction of bergamot and allows this lush fragrance a tart counterpoint. Honey swirls through this milky cup and adds an amberous depth to its pale color. Tonka bean shimmers at the base of this scent, an additional dose of sugar that last granular, glistening, and which sparkles as it dissolves. Caramel is the result of tonka bean and honey intermingling in the body of this draught, and its liquid sweetness is thick and buttery. Caramel's molten luxury is a perfect predecessor to an all encompassing dry down of vanilla, which slowly overflows the crunchy confines of the waffle cone that surrounds it. Sure to elicit a smile from any gourmand lover, this scent is remarkably inventive yet comforting.
