Alkemia Enchanted Plumcake was created by Sharra Lamoureaux and has notes of crystallized plums and pears, ripe figs, citron peel, frosted vanilla musk, candied rose petals, lavender syrup and brandied fruitcake.
From the brand:
"What crowding thoughts around me wake,
What marvels in a Christmas-cake!
Ah say, what strange enchantment dwells
Enclosed within its odorous cells?
Is there no small magician bound
Encrusted in its snowy round?
For magic surely lurks in this,
A cake that tells of vanished bliss;
A cake that conjures up to view
The early scenes, when life was new;
When memory knew no sorrows past,
And hope believed in joys that last!"
-- Helen Maria Williams"

Alkemia - "I'm in a kitchen, eating fruitcake with marzipan and frosting. Wait, that's my arm."
Reddit - "The notes describe it perfectly... immediately I get fruity plum & pears, but can also pick up the fig, soft candied rose petals, lavender syrup, and brandied fruitcake. I think this is the first house I've experienced where the description notes & what actually hits my nose are so aligned."
Alkemia Etsy - "a great blend of beautiful plum with the other notes of brandied fruitcake, pear, fig, candied rose and vanilla musk. The musk isn’t too strong and the other notes are well balanced. I can’t stop sniffing it. It reminds me of Christmas time and a relative who passed away that I know would have enjoyed this smell. It is also a suitable smell for all of the seasons (I think). It’s sweet but not too sweet. Enchanted for sure!"
