Niki on Oct 06, 2017
First impression? This is probably going to be my favorite pumpkin. It's got a definite yummy pumpkin aspect, but no spice. I'm getting their lovely sugar note; the more I see of their sugar, the more I love it. The resins add the absolute perfect balance. It's smoky and I definitely smell the copal and oudh. Oh, I love it.

This is totally different from Vampire Vanilla Bat, if anyone was concerned. I am definitely getting the bourbon vanilla,and the tea is mild but definitely there. In my experience with these types from NA the tea will be stronger over time, and play more of a role, and this is only the second day quick impression. The pepper is a lovely supporting note to the vanillas and I can tell there's a woody note here. I'm going to adore this, and I'm glad I went for this one too.I am definitely getting the bourbon vanilla,and the tea is mild but definitely there.

Halloween, vanilla and patchouli, oh my!
Briana on Sep 27, 2017
This could be one of the most beautiful vanilla, and haunting patchouli perfumes I own. I absolutely love all the patchouli perfumes NA offers because there is no other like it on Earth. It is perfect for the season and for anytime you want to be reminded of the awesomeness of Halloween season. Let's be honest, that's all year 'round! If you love vanilla and patchouli, you cannot miss this. I have all the versions before this 2017 one, and they all have gotten even better with age, if that's even possible! This lasts on me, and I think I need a few backups. :)

Vampire Vanilla Bat
Niki on Oct 06, 2017
Oh, yummy. Definitely can see a few different vanillas in this, and the spice is light, perfectly done. I ordinarily amp spice, but this is so balanced, I don't have a problem with it at all. The patch is the PERFECT balance here. I'm already in love with this. It's quite rich and the patchouli is really great and reeling it in, grounding it. Definitely glad I nabbed a bottle this year.
