Cocoa Pink Butter Pecan Cake Review

Brand: Cocoa Pink
Availability: General Catalog Autumn/Winter (N/A in Spring/Summer)
Notes: Rich and buttery, this scent is sure to please the foody lovers. Realistic butter cake topped with an assortment of candied nuts.

First impression out of bottle: Buttery cake

Freshly applied: Butter cake with some caramel.

Drydown: Stronger dark caramel scent now, still overlaid on a nice buttery yellow cake. I don't get distinct nuttiness. I could be smelling nuts as just another component of the caramel scent. 

Dark caramel and yellow cake

After several hours: Same rich sweet cake.

Longevity: Medium high. This sticks around a while as most Cocoa Pink EDPs do but with disappointing throw.

Sillage: Low medium-  I was disappointed as this would be a favorite of mine with a little better throw. This stays very close to the skin, even at initial time of application!

Would an [X] lover love this? Anyone who likes sweet gourmands will dig this. It's not too over the top sugary

Would an [X] hater love this? Sweet gourmand haters might like this as it's not cloying, but then again it's pretty standard. I would say it's a less chaotic and exuberant version of Arcana Ganesh. Less sweet, no honey, but gives that same lovely golden cake impression. 

Where am I? Digging into a cake baked by a sweet old lady.

Where would I wear this? I would wear this at night, as it's quite sweet, but maybe not for a big night out, because the throw is minimal. It would be really soft and pleasant at intimate distances, so maybe for dinner or something.
