Dorian & Dahl recently held a contest to choose new scents for Fall. Two winners were chosen.
‘Mooncake Memory.’ (by Balloonhat)
The Mid-Autumn Festival is full of delights but none more important than the mooncake. Lightly roasted almonds and crushed lotus blossoms mixed with sweet brown sugar are drizzled over earthy green tea and rich ambergris soaked dragon fruit.
‘The Veil is Thin.’ (by Kiss My Sparkle)
The time has come. The sun has long set. The veil between worlds is thin. Ripe Mcintosh apples sway in dry leave littered wind while earthy Jack O’ Lanterns spiked with clove, spice and fig light the way to a mysteriously inviting patchouli and labdanum base.
I love the fact that D&D had a contest for this. I love the names of the new scents and the awesome descriptions. I really wanna give Mooncake Memory a sniff!
Of course, I’m going to mention Dame Caniche again, because hey, my scent!
SCENT FAMILY: Fruity, Sweet, Warm
Decadent almond creme brulee sweetens spiced pears and juicy raspberries while warm sandalwood and a fresh bouquet of frangipani and hibiscus florals waft through Egyptian musk soaked amber.
I hope that Dorian & Dahl has another scent contest, because I had a lot of fun creating a scent.
My scent was:
Pear, Pumpkin Pie Spice, Caramel, Ginger, and Amber
Oh, before I forget. Dorian & Dahl has added a master scent list, from A to Z. I love this!
What’s your favorite type of scent for Fall?

Oooh, Mooncake Memory sounds really nice! I like the sound of your Harvest Crisp, maybe next time ;-) And i still need to grab up Dame!
UneLuneBleue It was fun to come up with a scent combo to enter I like contests like that.
I received a sample yesterday of Dame Caniche and am wearing it today. It’s really, really gorgeous! Great job creating a lovely scent!
kissmysparkle I can’t wait to smell it in person! I’ve been dreaming about it
It’s actually through your blog that I found Dorian & Dahl in the first place; your review of Femme Fatale got me to order a sample, and I loved it. I cannot wait to smell Mooncake Memory.
balloonhat That’s awesome! I’m always happy to hear when people try something and love it
Phyrra There are so many products out there that nowadays I only buy if someone highly recommends it, or if there are enough aggregate thoughtful, positive reviews for something. I also got Troll Repellant based on your enthusiasm for it, and I’m so glad I did.
Troll Repellant is truly amazing
