Pumpkin Dulce - Dulce de Calabaza - Autumn 2022
As the history of Halloween as an observance began with the use of turnips in Celtic nations, we tend to think of pumpkins as a North American tradition, but the pumpkin has featured in Latin American culture for thousands of years. For example, the earliest evidence of pumpkin seeds on the planet come from Mexico, dating back as early as 7000 B.C., and pumpkins feature prominently in the folklore of Puerto Rico and in Santeria! Our scrumptious take on dulce de leche features pumpkin and pumpkin butter surrounded by oodles of caramel and vanilla cream on a gingerbread crust with notes of Autumnal warmth courtesy of a sprinkle of allspice, nutmeg and ginger. Fans of our Garland & Lace fragrance will want some of *this* sweetness in their lives!Scent: Pumpkin dulce de leche.
