Icons Schmicons

Man, you kids these days and your hip trends. *bandwagon*   //   And yes, it is pure coincidence that the first two icons I made were to do with the Hunchback of Notre Dame. I'm as confused as you are. Hellfire is completely apropos of nothing, other than the fact that it got that song stuck in my head.

REVIEW: Thunder Moon 2007

Ozone deepened by liquid amber, and a spray of hot nighttime rain mingled with the scent of lightning-struck wood, water-soaked summer blooms, and sun-scorched grass. In the bottle, I smelled a kind of freshness and soap. Wet on skin, it continued to be soaps, but gave off a greener scent-- not plant green, but a high synesthetic green with a blueish hue. As it dried, it retained its greensoap smell, but developed a mellow spiciness.   This was so strong on me that I ended up washing it off after a few hours, on account of the fact that it was starting to make me woozy-- tho' I suppose that could have just been medication withdrawals-- but! Like I said, vurreh, vurreh strong. Will have to remember to apply less next time 'round.   And speaking of synesthesia... for some reason it really bothers me that the bottle is blue and pink, rather than green: "Clearly you're green with a mild brown and blue undertone, you fibber!" I yell at it, which in itself is probably indicative of an entirely different mental condition.

How Not to Test:

By slathering yourself in several different scents at the same time, on different parts of the body. Dance of Death on my wrist and neck, Umbra on one hand, Iago on the other...   Not to mention the myriad of other scents that I've tried and simply let fade, instead of washing them off properly. *fail*   Is it my fault that I've bought about 300 different imps/bottles in the last month and now I don't know what to do with them? (Yes.)

REVIEW: Water of Notre Dame

Brings peace to the spirit, a sense of calm and fulfillment, and attracts the aid of beneficial spirits.     In The Bottle Smells like watah. And a bit of flowery.   Wet On Skin Aquatic, with light, calm florals. Maybe I didn't put enough on, but I have to put my wrist right up in my nose to get much off it.   Dry On Skin Much stronger now, especially the florals; I can actually smell it without trying to. A little like soap or baby powder. It's hard to describe when I don't have a proper description to work off of.   Longevity Lasted only two or so hours.   Color Bright white and light lilac.

REVIEW: Mi-Go Brain Canister

Pink pepper, peony, jasmine, mango, kiwi, pomegranate, pineapple, white ginger, serene white tea and light musks.   Thank God I at least know what most of these things smell like on their own, because otherwise I would be in something of a pickle trying to decipher such a multi-element scent.   In The Bottle First reaction: I don't know what I'm smelling, I know I've smelled it before, but I don't think I like it. On closer inspection, I could catch the fruity notes and even a bit of sharpness-- the ginger? The florals stood out above that. I'm not sure what the first scent I encountered was, as my mental scent library is limited, but I suppose it was either the pink pepper or the peony-- being the ones I'm unfamiliar with. Starting to soften on my initial reaction.   Wet On Skin Much sharper! More floral here, but not much fruit. A bit musky. Less startling when diluted.   Dry On Skin The musk is starting to come out over the floral, but still not much in the way of fruitiness. Though, oddly, I did get a faint tang in the back of my throat resembling fruit roll-ups of all thing. Suppose it does make sense, considering all the fruits listed.   Longevity   Color Antique rose, mauve, yellowed paper.

REVIEW: Galvanic Goggles

metallic, Indian musk, tobacco flower, African balsam In The Imp The metallic scent is quite prominent here. It has a mild alcoholic burn-- the sort you often get with perfumes-- but the other elements stop it from being unpleasant. There's a sort of sweetness underneath it all. Wet On Skin Much sharper then in the imp; it almost has a citrusy eucalyptus tang to it. The muskiness is apparent, but mostly covered by the metal.   Dry On Skin The metal's calmed down, though still hanging around. Now the musky scents have come out, giving it a soft but masculine feeling, but with a hit of sweetness. I really have no idea what tobacco leaf or balsam smell like (or at least, I don't think I do), so I can't say how well they stand out individually. Heady, but nothing that'll make you feel like falling over.   Longevity Expect this on to be on you for the duration. It's OK, go to sleep; it'll be there when you wake up.   Color Silver and brass and brown-orange with a little swirl of light, light green-blue.
