Eve - Twyla Perfumes

Twyla Perfumes & Apothecary

Chrysanthemum, ginger, pomegranate, apple, fig, milk accord, carnation, ginger lily, cassia, sandalwood and amber

I am doing a few Twylas this week because I want to do an order soon and I am checking out what I want in full sizes. Now, this was a funny one because I did not pick a single one of the notes above except for the sandalwood that came out in the drydown. Not even the amber, which usually romps all over me. It also doesn't smell particularly fruity on me. This is what it smells like:

Yes, this is exactly how I imagine Sandy smells at the end of Grease. What I get from this perfume is bubblegum and tobacco. In the vial there is a citrusy liquorice, though looking at the notes now, I wonder if what I took to be liquorice isn't actually ginger... Whatever it is, it doesn't come out on my skin at all.

Sillage is lowish and longevity is medium. I applied in the morning before work and felt the need to reapply at lunchtime as it had almost disappeared. I don't know what to make of this one - the notes confused me a lot. I see no bubblegum or tobacco mentioned but that's definitely what I smell!


Day 175!


  1. Bubblegum and tobacco sounds like a freaking amazing and fun mixture- even if that wasn't the intention of the creator! My only bubblegum perfume is I Smell like a Witch and I love it :D

    1. The funny thing is that it smells like REAL bubblegum and the only other bubblegum scents I've smelled have been very synthetic and fake. It's totally weird since nothing like that is listed in the notes or the description. I'm curious about what other people smell in this one.

  2. Christian described 'Pumpkin Eater' from HoG as bubblegum - I wasn't getting that at all, but I don't mind the idea of smelling like bright pink super chewy bubblegum, with an edge to cut the sweetness.

    1. I haven't tried that one - I tend to avoid any pumpkin-related scents because I've never had any luck with them.

    2. Do you want to give Pumpkin Eater a try? I'm curious to know if you would smell bubblegum! My little vial is just going to gather dust ;-)
