I should have known.
I should have known that Allison's pumpkin spice wouldn't be an overpowering, cartoonish version of America's Favorite Gourd (TM). I resisted purchasing this soap at first, then I decided to get it as a gift.
Poor sucker's not getting THAT gift anymore. Mama's keeping this lil' sweetie.
The thing is--it's not that sweet, treacly artificial pumpkin smell blasting around chain stores and decking our autumnal halls. Oh, it's pumpkin. It's cinnamony. Think of a woodsy, earthy Samhain circle--this soap is *that* kind of pumpkin spice.
And the soap itself has that great, luxurious and decadent feel.
