SOLSTICE SCENTS POSTPRANDIAL REVIEWS
Fragrantica: A sweet and mellow gourmand with a beautiful Bailey's Irish Cream opening. The boozy start with a hint of hot chocolate, which settles into soft sweetness. As it develops the creamy quality remains but blonde woods gradually enter to gently balance the sweetness, this makes it incredibly wearable. The longer dry down reveals a bit of sticky pipe tobacco in the base. I do not find coffee at anytime, more like coffee creamer. This is a very round and smooth skin scent for snuggling or pleasing yourself. Perfectly unisex and non-offensive. Possibly too sweet to be professional depending on your work, I wouldn't wear this on the job. Close up I get the full scent story but whiffs when moving are very edible, sweet snack vibes.
Fragrantica: Nice boozy coffee. To me this is less of dark, rich chocolate, as I am getting more vanilla notes. It's like a creamy vanilla latte with a bit of Bailey's. It loses some sweetness as it dries down and could have more projection. It's just more of a weak scent but is delicious. Definitely unisex.
Fragrantica: The perfect scent for cozying up on the sofa in the evening and having a stiff drink. It smells strongly of Bailey's Irish Cream at first, meaning it's more of a weekend/evening scent and not so much for work (unless you work in a bar!) I get a bit of chocolate in there as well, and in the dry down the tobacco really comes through for me.
Fragrantica: This doesn't have much throw in comparison to Solstice's more spicy/sweet scents. However, dare I say it, I think Postprandial makes an excellent masculine gourmand. Due to the well-blended boozy and tobacco notes, this can be worn by both men and women who do not enjoy sweet/cloying or "edible" gourmands.
Fragrantica: What a delectable treat! I confess that I am not a gourmand lover per se. At least I have not really fancied the sugary concoctions that are widely available in the industry. It may be due to the fact that I have found many of them just too much in the face and stomach turningly unnatural. But many Solstice scents have found the way to my heart ... they are smooth and smell natural. Now, with regards to Postprandial. It's a latte with a nice dose of Baileys, laced with bit of cream on top. With regards to chocolate and coffee notes, for me it is white chocolate and white coffee. On the drydown the tobacco is a bit more accentuated and the vanilla stays too, bit like a slightly spiced white chocolate bar. Safe for blind buy. I find it's leaning towards feminine but a confident guy could easily pull this one off.
Reddit: This reminds me of the alcoholic coffee drinks I used to get at a bar in the place I went to undergrad. Rich Bailey's and Kahlua in dark roast mocha latte with whipped cream. I can almost feel the warmth of the cup in my hands and taste the hot chocolaty goodness. The bourbon and pipe tobacco add a really nice warmth and woodiness. My skin seems to eat this one up more than the others, so I'll just have to slather on more!
