Full Scent Description
Owl Creek Aleworks offers a delicious twist on English sticky toffee pudding. Toffee pudding consists of moist cake filled with sticky caramel-like chopped dates, smothered with a decadent toffee sauce. Owl Creek Aleworks serves theirs paired with locally made vanilla ice cream from Blackburn’s Parlor topped with toasted coconut and crushed hazelnuts. Wash it down with a tall glass of Owl Creeks’ Sugared Pumpkin Cream Stout, made with pumpkin’s from Gunnerson’s Pumpkin Patch!
Owl Creek Aleworks opens with a combination of toasted hazelnut, toffee and caramelly-dates when first applied. Toasted coconut, vanilla ice cream and a bit of gooey cake come forward after a few minutes to meld with the hazelnut and toffee notes. Sweet malt with a touch of spice and sugared pumpkin weaves in and out through the aforementioned notes to represent the Sugared Pumpkin Cream Stout. The stout portion of this fragrance does not smell like actual beer or alcohol but rather the sweet malt and raw ingredients that go together prior to fermentation. This gourmand blend has a very autumnal scent representing the color brown: dark stout, sticky toffee sauce, toasted hazelnut and coconut, thick malt and brown cake studded with dates.
The hazelnut fades and the dry down features toffee, toasted coconut, cake, pumpkin cream stout and a hint of caramel. Owl Creek Aleworks does not morph tremendously from initial application.
Ingredients: Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Oil, Fragrance (may include essential oils).
Size: Approx 5ml packaged in a glass vial with protective box.

Storage and Shelf Life
Most of our perfume oils are good for several years. We use rice bran oil as a carrier oil. Due to rice bran’s high anti-oxidant content, it has a very good shelf life.
Storing your oils appropriately will affect the shelf life. Be careful to store your Solstice Scents products, especially perfumes, out of direct sunlight and in a cool place as heat and light can age the products.
Safety Precautions for Pregnant or Nursing Mothers
Solstice Scent’s opinion is to avoid all fragranced and/or essential oil products while pregnant or nursing, especially in the first trimester. You may do your own research on the safety of using perfumes and fragrances while pregnant or nursing. Essential oils, fragrances and absolutes may pass into the bloodstream and may even cross the placental barrier. Not all oils are of concern, but Mothers should be cautious, especially in the first tri-mester. Some essential oils stimulate menstruation, are abortifacient, lower blood pressure and produce a myriad of other effects internally and externally and it is advised you exercise caution and be informed. Products which contain oils that we are aware should not be used while pregnant or nursing contain a warning at the top of the listing, above the description, though we still feel that unscented products are better for pregnant or nursing mothers. You may also wish to spray your perfumes conservatively on clothing instead of wearing them directly on the skin or try a few sprays of Glace combed through your dry hair or a little of the perfume oil rubbed in your hair.
About Solstice Scents
Solstice Scents started serving the local Gainesville, FL area in 2004. We originally sold soap, lotion, salts, candles, body oil, loose hand blended incense powders, dream pillows, eye pillows and neck pillows. We took our orders on order forms printed on parchment paper, hand wrote all of our tags and attached them with satin ribbon and
affixed our familiar mastic tree labels to bottles with rubber cement. Customers were able to select ala carte fresh made items directly off the order form, including customizing candle color or fabric choices. Bath salts were offered in upcycled Monin syrup bottles from the coffee shop Angela used to work at, topped with corks ordered from a wine supplier.
The business has evolved significantly since that time, though the same spirit, inspiration and aesthetic is infused into each item. While we no longer offer custom made items, all products are made with the same attention to detail and in small batches to ensure freshness. Our labels are designed in house with the original mastic tree
logo. The labels are applied by hand to the products. Each fragrance is still handwritten on the product label to this day.
