Fragrance notes: pumpkin, cinnamon, molasses
“Just then he saw the goblin rising in his stirrups, and in the very act of hurling his head at him. Ichabod endeavored to dodge the horrible missile, but too late. It encountered his cranium with a tremendous crash,—he was tumbled headlong into the dust, and Gunpowder, the black steed, and the goblin rider, passed by like a whirlwind... on the bank of a broad part of the brook, where the water ran deep and black, was found the hat of the unfortunate Ichabod, and close beside it a shattered pumpkin.”

The Legend of Sleepy Hollow is a classic American gothic horror story. It takes place in the 1790 Dutch settlement of Sleepy Hollow, New York from the perspective of the newly arrived schoolmaster Ichabod Crane. Ghost stories were abundant in the region and a particularly favorite ghostly character was the Headless Horseman, a Hessian soldier who lost his head from a cannon ball during the Revolutionary War. The apparition roams the hills at night searching for his missing head. One autumn night after leaving a party, Ichabod has an ill-fated encounter with the Headless Horseman in which he is chased, attacked, and never heard from again. The investigation into his disappearance turned up Ichabod’s saddle-less horse and near a deep brook his hat beside a shattered pumpkin. The tale has inspired countless artistic interpretations featuring the iconic Headless Horseman and pumpkin.
