    Kisses for Us All

    This one broke my heart! It was all clove and musk and syrupy cherry out of the bottle, and only got worse when I put it on. And I was so looking forward to it! I guess Alice will have to be my autumn floral.

    Birthday Surprise

    I'm a huge fan of Bliss. How does Birthday Surprise compare?

    Popcorn Ball Snake Oil

    Yay, I'm the first reviewer for this! Buttery, delicious, candy-sweet, sugary POPCORN BALLS. Totally edible. Once applied, I'm not getting a ton of the Snake Oil aspect of this, except upon first application, where it adds a very solidly gooey caramel-note. That fades quickly and I'm left with a light, buttery-sweet popcorn ball scent. VERY reminiscent of the Midway scent from the very first inceptions of the Carnival Diabolique series. Fleeting on me, but delicious, and smells just exactly like the real deal.

    Van Van

    This is nice. I am not expert enough to pick out scents but I get a soft sweetness from this—almost like a whiff of buttery caramel or something when I put my nose right up there and sniff deep. Maybe a hint of lemon? But this isn't foodie at all so I'm probably describing it wrong, haha. There's some powderiness—yup, like baby powder—but it isn't taking over. In my elbow I get a slightly more herbal, dare I say smoky, note. Like sage smudging almost. The citrusy backnote is definitely there but hard to identify. Lemon peel maybe, or possibly a lemony flower? I keep getting an edge of a floral but can't identify. I can see why people say this is a calming scent. It is, but it's not wowing me enough to want a full bottle. I take solace in the fact that despite being powdery, its not giving me a headache at all. Edit to add: Ok, as this dries down I get a soft rose. I see why people compare this to lemon sugar cookies somewhat. It's not foodie by any means but I get the impression of rose petals sprinkled atop vanilla-lemon shortbread. The smokiness in my elbow is gone. This really morphed into something quite lovely and I may need to reasses getting a full size now.

    My Tiger

    Sugared patchouli, amber, and a whiff of lavender. I shouldn't love this as much, but I do. Ugh, it's mainly a sugared patchouli/amber blend, and a whiff of lavender. It's like Silkybat's younger, more golden, sweeter little sister. Good throw and wear length.
  8. zankoku_zen

    Little Atalanta

    Dead Leaves and pleather. It's cool, leafy, and very much something the girls from the Craft would wear. Great throw and wear length.
  9. zankoku_zen

    Bourbon Vanilla & Yellow Carnation

    Soft vanilla with a whiff of spicy carnation. Bright, yellow, soft. Low throw, average wear length.

    Utter Sophistication

    This one was a surprise to me. I went to the Vermont Lunacy yesterday with a functional but definitely still existent migraine, and I wasn't sure how smelling things was going to go. Lots of things, I couldn't really deal with, but this one smelled comforting and good even when most smells were overwhelming. So that alone is a surprise, but also, I would not have guessed this would work on me based on the fact that I can't really wear straight Dorian (it gets very sharp on my skin), snake oil has only worked for me with additions, lavender is very blend dependent for me, and while I love the popcorn smells they haven't generally worked on my skin either. But together! Somehow it works! It's a comforting scent, warm and soft, and it lingers close to the skin for me (with some light throw early in the wear). I wore a little on my wrist to bed last night, even, which is not often something I can do with perfume. Heart eyes for real.
  11. Future Primitive: I have never tried anything from them before. I am always open to being enabled to new fabulousness. From the Autumn 19 line, the scents Just Witch, Four and Twenty Blackbirds, and Opium Den seem right up my alley. Do you like smallish knitted stuff (hats, fingerless mittens, scarves, toys, etc. -- be specific!)? Yes, I sure do. I love love hat mittens, arm warmers, and scarves. Not so much and toys. Easy Fingerless Mittens Love Pfeilraupe Asymmetrical Scarf Love Odyssey Shawl Super Love Close to You scarf Love Rikke Slouch Hat Cute, but I have a small head so hats can be tricky... Simple Yet Effective Cowl Love Knitted Pumpkins No thank you Little Bear Stuffy No thank you How do you feel about thrift store finds (assuming they're in good condition and have been thoroughly cleaned before shipping)? I love it. I love shopping at and receiving items from thrift and vintage shops as well as garage/boot sales and estate sales. My only request is that fabric items be laundered or left in the sun for a day or two if they are smelly. (Sun is SERIOUSLY the best way to get rid of moth ball etc smells!) I especially love vintage hankies (floral, embroidered etc), silk scarves, and jewelry (my Etsy wishlist has lots of vintage jewelry on it as a guide for what I like. Some of the prices there are CRAZY and similar pieces are dirt cheap at estate sales!) I may have bought several full size Rituel de Fille makeup items in a frenzy over their whole vibe. If I tested something once or twice (and it can be sanitized), would you be interested? I don't wear a lot of makeup, partly because I am lazy and partly because I'm just not very at applying it. That said, if you have something you think I would enjoy and could be trained to use properly, go for it. I am fine with properly sanitized testers. Are you interested in trying different skincare products from higher end, clean brands? I'm not super into trying skincare just because my skin is so reactive. But, again, if you know it doesn't contain any of my known problematic ingredients (which are on my questionnaire) and think I would like it, go for it. Any interest in anything from Torrid, noting their "fangirl" and Halloween collections are updated? I am not in Torrid's size range. (I generally wear somewhere in the vicinity of 6 to an 8, size small or medium t-shirts depending on the cut.) What on the following list would you like to receive something related to (or have something donated to in your and Joni's honor?) · animal rescue · pie · dogs · bears · turtles · inappropriate candies (either in shape or in contents—ex., boozy candies, creatively shaped peanut brittle…) Honestly, I would be happy with however my witch interprets this part of the challenge. Crazy shaped candies or pie would be eaten, donations are great, etc. I'll be going to Seattle, London and Paris during this round- anything you'd love to have from any of these locations? Nothing in particular, but anything that strikes you would be loved! Is there anything you would particularly like from Japan? Stationary, bento supplies, a particular snack, etc. The fall flavors for kitkats this year are Chestnut, Sweet Potato and Apple Pie. All of those KitKat flavors sound fascinating, but especially chestnut. Bento boxes and sauce cups are well loved in my house, but I don't use picks or cutters etc. Stationary would probably not be used. Food, sauces, candy, etc are always well loved. Thinking about really good natural food stores like Natural Grocers or Whole Foods, if you could have ANY bath and beauty or body care items, what would you love? I love bath bombs from those stories, and tubes of lovely hand cream. Also what kind of treats, snacks, foods, condiments, bulk items, teas, housewares from the same natural food stores would you love? I'm a big fan of nuts, nuts mixes, and trail mixes. I love tea and have a whole section on it on my questionnaire. I also love fancy jams and jellies, sauces, and marinades. Also, are there any particular sustainable kitchen or household items you would love to receive? Beeswax wrap, bamboo kitchen cloths, produce bags, reusable sandwich bags, and bamboo "paper" towels. Did anything catch your eye from the Liliths? I have ordered nothing from the Liliths, not even decants, so no worries about doubling up! The ones I would most like to try are Back in Blueblack, Generation Spooky, Lazy Daisy, My Tiger, Social Justice Paladin (probably the most desired of all), You're A Daisy if You Have Perfume Oil, and Go Hawks!. Would you like anything from Lush? Basically any bath bomb or bubble bar without cinnamon in it (ouch!) will be deeply loved by me. I also like some of their haircare products. I tend to paste a lot of lush stuff on Bath, Body & Fire Pinterest board, but it's far from an exhaustive list. I don't love there facial care stuff (to many reactions) or the shower jellies. I've become very interested in non-talc powders since I seem to be off all deodorant due to reactions... 9/26/19 So, there's a Euro coin of some denomination coming out with Asterix on it for the 60th anniversary and, while I'm not a coin collector, I've loved Asterix since before I could read and therefore really want one or two of the coin just to have. Is there anything kind of weird and niche about which you feel this way, fellow witchees? That sounds super cool, but I'm not an Asterix fan, so it's not for me. Kickstarter (and similar): Any thoughts, witches? I love the Kickstarter concept and have backed several things over the years. I don't have my eye on any in particular right now, but if you see one that you think is right up my alley, I am down with that. 9/28/19 Do you have an Etsy/Goodreads/Amazon or anything else wishlist you’d like to share? My amazon wishlist (which is books I want) and my Goodreads (which is books I own) should both be linked in my signature. If the links don't work, please let the ringleaders know! And what’s your preferred wrist/necklace size? Does anything from Bird & Blend take your fancy? It's hard to go wrong buying me tea unless you buy chamomile! I think I wrote a small treatise on this in my questionnaire, but I like blacks and oolongs best, followed by herbals. At first glance Great British Cuppa, Earl Grey Creme, Chocolate Digestives, Dark Choc Chili Chai, Terry's Orange Choc, Lady Lavender, Smoky Russian, Elderflower Prosecco, Coconut Milk Oolong, the Digester, and The Big Smoke all look great. Knitting questions have have been asked, but how about wash cloths, anyone need any? What colors?? I could always use dish cloths and I'm not picky about colors. is there anything from World Market that tickles your fancy? I don't have one near me, so I have no idea what they have right now! I say if it strikes you as me: Go for it! 9/29/19 There's a special thing happening over at Rituel de Fille this weekend, where some gorgeous makeup items are coming back for just a couple of days. I'll be placing an order Sunday or Monday- anything that might strike your fancy, either from the special sale or from the site in general? (https://ritueldefille.com) Nothing in particular, but as always if you think I will love it and need it in my life, go for it. How do you feel about tarot or oracle decks? Would you be interested in any (for artwork or for mystical purposes)? New or used? I have one ancient Tarot deck which I almost never use. In fact, I don't even know where it is. That's because it has just never resonated with me. I would love a deck that does. (The deck I have doesn't seem to be available anywhere, so Iw wouldn't worry about duplicating. It was called Renaissance, but the cards are actually very plain.) I would prefer new just because I wouldn't have to cleanse it, but used is NOT a deal breaker. Would pigment samples from companies like M.A.C. or Notoriously Morbid tickle your fancy? If so, what colors catch you eye? I use makeup for infrequently that I think they would be wasted on me. 9/30/19 do you have a favourite saying or quote? I do not. How do you feel about spicy foods, and where on the Scoville scale do you hit your limit? I like spicy food quite a lot. I think my max is probably in the Habanero level depending on what it's mixed with and prepared. How do you feel about coloring books, especially those pertaining to a personal interest or fandom? I have been given two amazing ones and both times a child stole them. I love them in theory, but it seems like I am really bad about ever getting to use them! 10/1/19 A few questions have been asked about knitted items--are crocheted equivalents acceptable? (crocheted fingerless gloves, shawls, etc.) Any fiber issues? Knit and crochet is GREAT!!! I have no fiber issues, but do tend to prefer natural fibers (i.e. cotton, wool, silk, linen and blends) to acrylic and polyester just for environmental reasons. But any yarn you have is FINE with me. Really. I just so appreciate people who can make things! About the Weenies: please list what you've bought or are definitely purchasing for yourself *as well as* what you would like to possibly receive from someone else! I have bought nothing and I am really trying to NOT but anything. That said, I lusting after Flesh of My Flesh, I am All In a Sea of Wonders, The Sleeping Draught, Voluptuous Wantonness, and His Red Mouth. I'd also love to try Mictecacihuatl, The Empty House, and The Shadowed Veil. Additionally, I use hair gloss in the winter/dry months and Picturesque Figure sounds great. (I tend to like scents with a lot less strength in my hair because it's so near my nose and they linger so much! So, although I love patchouli in my perfume oils, it's too much in a hair gloss.) Dear Witchee, are you at all boozy? Anywhere between hard cider to straight whisk(e)y? And any interest in the "unusual" stuff? (unusual as in non-mainstream, local craft ciders or meads, regional fruit wines, experiments from local distilleries, etc) I am a drinker and love unusual and regional things! I think I wrote a small treatise on that in my questionnaire too... 10/2/19 Nail Polish: Do you need or want some? If so, what colors and brands are you interested in? I don't paint my nail. Does anyone else do nail wraps? Nope. What about postcards? I am so bad about sending mail that they would be wasted on me. Is anyone interested in anything from the Nocturne Alchemy Halloween release (or, presumably, anything else from the site)? They are not a brand I have ever tried! I'm not opposed to trying something. Blood, Hemlock Cat, and Hekate Cat all sound interesting. (I found their collections/scent lists a little confusing!) How do you feel about salt? I don’t mean, like, salted nuts or potato chips. I mean straight-up salt, like alder-smoked finishing salt or Hana Flake sea salt. LOVE! Seriously. We're big fans of interesting salts. One of my very favorites to use on homemade crackers is black lava salt. I am totally into trying ALL THE SALTs. 10/3/19 I am infamous for baking (shortbreads savory and sweet, poundcake, various cookies and bars), butter caramels (flavored or plain), and catnip. Are any of these relevant to you or your household? Umm...all of them except catnip. But I especially love shortbread and caramels. Do you like to cook and do you need/want any spices for such pursuits? I love to cook and can never have too many spices, sauces, etc. Would you wear any of these? Fern , Nuada, Manannan, Duleek Abbey or an infinity scarf or tube cowl tall enough for a hood (like this scarf or this cowl for shape example)? I would totally wear any and all of those! Do you have any utilitarian needs for everyday life? Things that would help or that you've been needing or wanting for work or whatever? Some small things that I can always use are handkerchiefs, Kleenex packets, anti-bacterial hand wipes, small tubes of hand lotion, Elf wax pencils and clear mascara/brow gel. What kind of vegan snacks do you like? And vegan chocolate...favorites? I don't have any in particular, but tend to like all the snacks! 10/4/19 How would you describe your crafting style? Whimsical & Cute? Elegantly modern? Totally Traditional? I have no crafting lifestyle. I have two left thumbs. 10/6/19 So....we are about to process a metric f*ton of green tomato relish, which is basically bread and butter pickles but with sliced green cherry tomatoes. Is this relevant to any witchees? I love almost all food, but am not always a fan of sweet relish. That said, I would totally try it and my husband would probably love it! How do you celebrate Halloween/Samhain? Do you dress up? Would you like something for your costume? And am I the only person left on the planet who wears socks? I do celebrate and I usually dress up. There seems to be some question as to whether my department is participating in the annual costume thing this year though, so I am irked at them. I tend to wear tights more than socks because I usually wear skirts. 10/7/19 Are you interested in anything from Art Of Tea or Adagio Teas? I am totally interested in all tea that isn't chamomile. I especially love flavored blacks, oolongs, and pu'erhs. I make light-weight hairfalls, doll-style, using a variety of fun stuff, like ribbons, lace and soft batting. Would you be interested in receiving a set in the colors of your choosing? It would be immediately stolen by my niece. And a quick question here--I'm going to this amazing looking event on Saturday--does my witchee see anything they might be interested in? https://www.facebook.com/events/903999316607440/ (the Oddities Market) That looks so cool and I am so jealous. I want to go!!!! A bunch of the stuff looks really cool. I would totally be into creepy jewelry, random horrible taxidermy, candles, and art. For art, something I don't have to frame is preferred because I have a STACK of things I am trying to save up to frame. In the realm of creepy/spooky Halloween I really love imagery with ravens/crows, spiders, skeletons and watches -- basically think atmospheric and spooky rather than twee like pumpkins, ghosts, and black cats can be. 10/8/19 How do you feel about enamel pins? Love them, hate them, slightly interested, totally indifferent? Generally I'm not a huge fan simply because I no longer have a dedicated place for them and they tend to get stolen by my nephew, who is a little magpie. (My jean purse is long gone!) However, that said, I've recently seen a few that I just love, including a Skeleton one that says "I am not nice" and Wild Feminist pins. So...I guess I like certain really awesome ones, but am not exactly a collector if that makes any sense! 10/10/19 what is your T-shirt/shirt of choice Size? For ladies cut tees I prefer a medium. Traditional men's cuts, a small, and I tend to cut them at the neck, arms, and waist. There's a new thing out there called a "unisex" which is basically a slimmer cut version of a men's T often in stretchier fabric, and I like those in mediums too. Really, you can't go wrong with a medium unless it looks abnormally huge. 10/11/2019 OCTOBER LUNACY! I know turn around time is unlikely, but just saying (JUST SAYING), dear Witchee, did anything catch your eye? I adore the Hunter Moon t-shirt, would love to try imPEACHment, Peach Chypre, and Palo Santo and Sandalwood. https://archaichoney.com/bloodmoonbotanica (Britton used to run Haus of Gloi.) Witchee, are you interested in any kinds of things from the Blood Moon Botanica update? MOON DEW (will have a presale should it sell out) Looks great with no known danger zone ingredients! HIGH MOUNTAIN ARNICA OIL No thanks SAINT JOHNS WORT OIL No thanks CALMING ELIXIR Sadly, no, the chamomile makes it a no go FIRELIGHT TURKEY TAIL TINCTURE No thanks, I sometimes have issues with mushroom tinctures (I seem to fine with chaga tea though) YARROW ALDER HEALING SALVE I could absolutely use this DEEP FOREST OIL Probably would not get used in a timely fashion at my house. PEACH LEAF ELIXIR Would be great to have on hand for winter DRAWING SALVE Probably gentle enough for me. LINDEN & CALIFORNIA POPPY ELIXIR This sounds very interesting ENGLISH DAISY FLOWER ESSENCE Daisies, like chamomile, are in the ragweed family and I need to avoid them. also I took some beading classes and have been making bracelets, necklaces, and earrings. Would you be interested in any? If so, how big is your wrist or how long would you like your bracelet? Any preferred styles of beads? I am always into jewelry, more necklaces and earrings than bracelets. I'm pretty sure my measurements are in my questionnaire. I don't have preferred bead styles but currently like BRIGHT things and could use some more reds, oranges, and purples in my life. 10/13/19 If I was to donate to an animal rescue on your behalf as the "lucyboo" component of this swap, is there one in particular that you would choose? The local one here is AC Paw, but I'd be equally pleased with a donation to one local to you OR to one which was local to Lucyboo. 10/15/19 What is your very favorite Halloween candy? If you don't have one/don't do candy, what's a seasonal treat you love? I am easy with Halloween candy. I love peanut butter cups and basically all the candy that comes in the variety bags with them. I also really like pay days and sugar babies/daddies and Bit O' Honey which I see more places at this time of year. But I also love fall treats like caramel apples, plain apples, cider, doughnuts, etc. Basically, there's not much I don't like except gummy candies. I just got an email from Lush that their Christmas stuff is now up online! anything you might like? Christmas is the only holiday we really decorate for because we usually host at least one meal at my house (Eve or Day). I love ornaments for our tree, and random awesome things for our mantel. (One of my favorites is a Star Wars snow globe!) I don't actually own any wreaths or garland, which at some point I should remedy. I could also totally use my Christmas linens (napkins, placemats, etc) and dishes. 10/18/19 If you were my witchee, would you enjoy home made (canned) preserves? I'm going home to Can All The Things & I'm thinking some bananas foster butter/sauce might be a nifty thing for you. I love homemade canned things, but I am allergic to bananas. Anything else I would love though! 10/19/19 I am in Las Vegas is there anything you would want from here? I can't think of anything in particular and I think you're either back or coming home today! But really, anything that strikes you as "me" or that would make me smile would be loved.

    Lazy Daisy

    It's straight up dryer sheets on me, which I find disappointing, since I usually love the Lab's tea scents! But if you're looking for something clean and inoffensive, this is a good choice.

    Gnome Ruckus

    Definitely cherry, although on me it's more cough syrup than red vines. No cream soda, which I was hoping for!

    All Hallows Chaos: Pumpkin Spice

    I blind bottled my first ever Chaos Theory scents last year because I figured I can't go wrong with Pumpkin Spice or Samhain, and then apparently forgot to post my reviews. Bottle #102 - this is now almost a year old, so the review is for the aged scent. It's been kept in a dark box in my bedroom, which is always quite cool in temp. The pumpkin spice is front and center in the bottle. On my skin, it is very quickly followed by.... OMG this is the cream soda scent in my bottle of Kinda Sorta Snake Oil w/Cream Soda! The cream soda rises up and tempers the pumpkin spice notes very thoroughly. After 30 minutes the overall intensity has dried down and softened to a sweet creamy pumpkin spice. This is a huge win in my book.

    Liaison

    I inherited torischroeder9’s 2012 bottle~ This is thick romance. Darkly powdery, floral, slightly sweet.. the musk is dominating on me. It makes me think of of clandestine meetings in the park between a high class woman and her lover. Steamy nights and soft words. The brighter note of tea doesn’t show, nor do I detect the clove, yet I didn’t apply a full amount this test. At this point, the black musk makes it too powdery for me to fully enjoy. I still need to do a real full wear to make sure I’m not missing out on the other notes. I think the brighter tea and frankincense would lighten the experience and make it more my style. Plus, a little zing from clove would be quite welcome in such heavy love vibes.
  17. LadyLuckless

    Peach, Peach Blossom, Apricot, Nectarines

    You know, that’s a really good idea! Lots of grounding notes in Peach Chypre and I notice there’s no musk in it, which I think was contributing to the “generic perfume” effect. I’ll give that a try, thanks! 😊

I'm going home to Can All The Things & I'm thinking some bananas foster butter/sauce might be a nifty thing for you. 10/19/19 I am in Las Vegas is there anything you would want from here?

    Tagetes

    I've always thought that marigolds smell weird. Kind of musty, kind of bitter. Weird and marigoldy. Tagetes on my skin smells weird and marigoldy. Not exactly as I remember, and it gets sweeter over its wearlife, which my skin tends to do to a lot of green notes. Not much throw (normal for me) but good wear life. I can't imagine wearing this as a perfume, but I enjoy the single notes as a way of reminding myself what individual components smell like.

    Corn Riggs

    Amidst all the many fall scents, this is a really excellent and unique one. It does indeed remind me of visiting a mountain farm in late October, the smell of corn and sunflowers and hay on clean brisk air, and a market full of gourds and fruits. There's a sweetness that reminds me of maple leaves but not maple syrup, and the memory of apples and pumpkins without anything specifically screaming APPLE! PUMPKIN! So many delicious parts of fall harvest, with no single note taking over. I wouldn't have guessed there was either bonfire smoke or incense in here, but I think it runs underneath the top notes to give this a rich, deep autumnal glory. Don't be worried about the smoke if it has done you dirty in the past. It is a very friendly fire. This does indeed remind me of Scarecrow Turned Philosopher, so if you can't find Corn Riggs, that's a good backup. But wow, this one would have made a great Weenie! I will happily hold onto my bottle and wear it often in the fall.

    Hekaerge

    Hekaerge is a lovely and lasting patchouli scent on me. Testing blind I guessed patch, cedar and lemon balm — the latter two would be the balsam and lemongrass. I didn’t pay a lot of attention to the opening — applied right before leaving the house — so I may have missed the lavender entirely as it rarely lasts on me. I’m not getting much myrrh either. A gritty honey is sweetening things only slightly but adding to the staying power. Very nice!
  23. Follow My Nose

    στοργή (Storge)

    Lavender and Snake Oil are absolutely lovely together! I can smell light sugary cotton candy and rosewater (one of the rose-based notes that usually works on me), and a hint of powdery honey that all come out during drydown. Those three serve as backup dancers for the Snake Oil/lavender duet. This is so gorgeous, I think I need to gather funds for a full bottle, even though I'm trying to limit myself to only decants for a while.
  24. Follow My Nose

    Bread Lumps

    This is exactly as described and I'm so tickled with it. Crusty, fresh-baked bread with honey, yum! The scent stays true on my skin through the drydown and has medium throw and wear length. I don't always go for straight-up foodie scents, but this one is unique, warm, and lovely!
  25. Follow My Nose

    Utter Sophistication

    My skin reacted differently to this scent than other folks & went through a few interesting stages. On first application, it was buttery popcorn with smooth, warm oak and an undefined sweetness underneath. As it dried, the Dorian, lavender, and vanilla came out right away, reminding me of The Serpentine. Beeswax and Snake Oil immediately followed but remained in the background. It quickly all blended together into a lovely sweet blend of all the notes with Dorian most prominent. Sadly, after it dried completely, the lavender and popcorn faded away on my skin. It's still gorgeous, but I did love the popcorn! Apparently, so did my skin, since it ate it all up. Although I'm still smelling a faint buttery note which compliments the rest of the scent. Leftover popcorn, maybe?

    Peach, Peach Blossom, Apricot, Nectarines

    Not with peach in particular, but I know some fruit notes that go artificial on me tend to do a little bit better when they have good base notes like wood or patchouli to fix them so maybe you'd have better luck with Peach Chypre?
  27. LadyLuckless

    Peach, Peach Blossom, Apricot, Nectarines

    I’ve had no luck with peach blends actually smelling like peach. It always ends up smelling like a department store perfume counter on me. I’m eyeing Peach Chypre and Impeachment but I’m wondering if the same thing will happen. Does anyone know any real, fresh peachy peach scents? Maybe I should try apricot instead? ETA: This has happened with Fae, Cat Chasing Butterflies, and Alleviate the Frenzy.

    Revenant Rhythm Hair Gloss

    i got as little decant of RR to see what all the fuss was about. yep it's patchouli and vanilla primarily with a hint of hemp. patchouli is hit or miss for me, depending on the blend, but i like it in this. this smells a little like earthy chocolate for some reason, and i like it. after awhile that sweetness seems to disappear somewhat and it's mostly a dry patchouli and hemp. this isn't something i would wear a lot but would like on occasion, especially in cooler weather.

    Switch Witch 2019 - my answers

    9/18/19 Would you like anything from Future Primitive? (It's fine to mention OOS things, I've probably already bought it! 🤣 ) https://futureprimitivesoap.co.uk/ Ooh, I'm always envious when I see other people get these. Would love to try some! Assuming they are all paraben, SLS, phthalate free? Bubbling Bathing Grains Body Cream Shampoo Bar Sugar Scrub (any of the three types) Whipped Soap (anything really except bar soap, perfume, and conditioner.) *Ghost Smoke ** Lughnasadh * Opium Den ** The Gloaming Shadow Show Tombstone Witch Cake Bell Book & Candle *Dragon's Blood Cordwainer Festival Four & Twenty Blackbirds OM **Rook & Raven * Sylph ** White Witch Does anyone have a favorite horror movie that they love? Need a copy/DVD of? No thank you, I don't have a dvd/blu-ray in my room and I rarely leave my room. I'm not super into horror any more (used to watch tons of horror and b-movies when I had a BF who was really into it.) Do you like smallish knitted stuff (hats, fingerless mittens, scarves, toys, etc. -- be specific!)? I like crescent, sideways, and bias shawlettes or round/pi/half circle shawls. I do love me some fingerless mitts but the cast on and bind offs need to be done stretchy (cable cast on or JSSCO; JSSBO or lace/russian bind off.) Or you can look in my "Make for Me" bundle on Ravelry. Or the Vampire Swap bundle. Patterns I want (not knitted for me, I want to knit them) are in my Wishlist. Please don't knit things for me that are in my queue, I want to knit those! Do any of these knitted items appeal to you? - Either no, I already have them made, or I already have the pattern and have them in my queue to make. How do you feel about thrift store finds (assuming they're in good condition and have been thoroughly cleaned before shipping)? I love thrifting! Totally fine with me. 9/20/19 I may have bought several full size Rituel de Fille makeup items in a frenzy over their whole vibe. If I tested something once or twice (and it can be sanitized), would you be interested? Sure! I actually have products from them on my wishlist (in signature.) Are you interested in trying different skincare products from higher end, clean brands? Sure! Assuming they are all paraben, SLS, phthalate free. Any interest in anything from Torrid, noting their "fangirl" and Halloween collections are updated? I super want the "Leg Avenue Black Bat Cozy Dress Halloween Costume" and the Microfiber Tighter (black, size 1/2, 30% off.) I'm also interested in everything NMBC, Harry Potter, Doctor Who, etc. What on the following list would you like to receive something related to (or have something donated to in your and Joni's honor?) · animal rescue · pie · dogs · inappropriate candies (either in shape or in contents—ex., boozy candies, creatively shaped peanut brittle…) All of the above! I'll be going to Seattle, London and Paris during this round- anything you'd love to have from any of these locations? YES ALL THE THINGS. Um, I live close to Seattle so I'm good there. London and Paris? Surprise me? I love really good tea (I order from Mariage Freres in Paris but I have lots of their tea on my Amazon edibles wishlist), I love local small batch chocolates (no coffee please. no white chocolate.) Starbucks city mugs? Cool spices? Whatever you'd think I'll like, I'm pretty open. Is there anything you would particularly like from Japan? Stationary, bento supplies, a particular snack, etc. The fall flavors for kitkats this year are Chestnut, Sweet Potato and Apple Pie. ALL THE FLAVORED KIT KATS!!! I love those! I get a lot of things locally at little asian stores but they don't always get the kit kats and when they do, they charge like $8/9 a bag for them. 9/22/19 Thinking about really good natural food stores like Natural Grocers or Whole Foods, if you could have ANY bath and beauty or body care items, what would you love? I'm good on lip balm right now. I love to try new things and I'd love to have some the Vanilla scented items that used to be sold at my local co-ops but I can't ever find anymore by Ecco Bella. I have them on my Amazon bath and beauty wish list. Also interested in skin care, I have super oily skin and need a good moisturizer. Also what kind of treats, snacks, foods, condiments, bulk items, teas, housewares from the same natural food stores would you love? All of them? I love RX Bars but I buy those at costco now (the dark chocolate sea salt and the peanut butter are my favorites.) I've tried the RX Butter and it's good but too runny for me and I hate stirring in the oil over and over when it separates. I love Dave's Killer Bread and the everything Bagels. Licorice Mint tea! Also, are there any particular sustainable kitchen or household items you would love to receive? I have stuff on my Amazon kitchen and house & home wish lists for inspiration. 9/23/19 Did anything catch your eye from the Liliths? Yes, they are already in my wishlist (in signature.) Would you like anything from Lush? Yes yes yes I love bath bombs. And there are some other items on my amazon wish list under bath and body; angels on bare skin, greased lightning, some moisturizer, etc. No soap though please, and I don't use the bubble bars very often. Bombs and melts are awesome. I *LOVE* the sleepy hand cream and go through it really fast. The soap paper things are kind of cool. Would love some of the lust perfume. I loved Flying Fox and .. I forget the name, Puffy White Clouds? The patchouli one. I think their shower gels have SLS in them though, sigh. 9/26/19 Is there anything kind of weird and niche about which you feel this way, fellow witchees? Ummm yeah, actually, a lot of things. Like I'll buy stamps from the UK with cool artwork on them even if I'll never be able to use them. Also US Stamps. Also coins. Also just about anything that I love because I'm a weirdo. also I ADORE Krampus stuff -- I have a couple of Krampus books somewhere in storage (The Devil in Design and I can't remember the other) and would gleefully accept all things Krampus, especially cute Krampus. Stickers, rubber stamps, wrapping paper, pins, post cards, etc. Kickstarter (and similar): Any thoughts, witches? I have been lucky and have gotten everything I've ever backed but there is nothing currently out that I'm needing to have that I'm aware of. I just finally got my Last Unicorn tarot deck and my Wise Dog tarot should be on the way. 9/28/19 Do you have an Etsy/Goodreads/Amazon or anything else wishlist you’d like to share? Yes, in my signature - in the wishlist / sw help portion, scroll down. And what’s your preferred wrist/necklace size? My wrist is about 8" and I think I put this info in the original SW questionnaire? Does anything from Bird & Blend take your fancy? Bonfire Toffee Great British Cuppa Terry's Orange Chocolate Aniseed Balls Smoky Russian Vicky's Sponge Cake Knitting questions have have been asked, but how about wash cloths, anyone need any? What colors?? Nah, I'm good. is there anything from World Market that tickles your fancy? Always! I love World Market. I tend to get chocolate, snacks, sticky toffee pudding (holidays), and whatever else looks fun. This year it seemed like the collection at my store was pretty small and mostly addams family stuff. While that's cute and I adore it, I don't really have room for most of it. (I totally wanted one of the skull head punch/water dispensers from last year though, lol. But ... I have no place to put and nothing to put in it.) 9/29/19 There's a special thing happening over at Rituel de Fille this weekend, where some gorgeous makeup items are coming back for just a couple of days. I'll be placing an order Sunday or Monday- anything that might strike your fancy, either from the special sale or from the site in general? (https://ritueldefille.com) I don't really know what is on the special sale but I have a bunch of items in my wishlist. Anything that you think I would like! How do you feel about tarot or oracle decks? Would you be interested in any (for artwork or for mystical purposes)? New or used? I would like some rune sets but I'm good on tarot decks right now. Charging slabs or something like that would be welcome! (The exception would be the Phantomwise Tarot deck, I love the artwork in that one so much!) Would pigment samples from companies like M.A.C. or Notoriously Morbid tickle your fancy? If so, what colors catch you eye? I have a ton of samples I've never opened but if there are some you think I'd like, sure. I like smoky eye type things and sparkle. greys, blues, purples, blacks, maroons, dark greens? glimmer! sparkle! I want to look like a fricking unicorn! (ok, I actually don't wear make up that often. Pigs and goats aren't impressed, nor are the sheep or my dog.) 9/30/19 do you have a favourite saying or quote? There are so many, how do I choose a favorite? I mean, I have favorite quotes from particular books, tv shows, movies, cartoons, poetry, ... Inconceivable! As you Wish. Always. (short ones) Many longer and more serious ones from Gaiman, Pratchett, Tolkien, etc. etc. etc. How do you feel about spicy foods, and where on the Scoville scale do you hit your limit? Probably Cayenne and down if we're talking about eating. (cream cheese & jalapeno is YUM. We make candied jalapenos too.) For for not eating, we add the hottest peppers we can get to our "thunder butter" muscle rub. How do you feel about coloring books, especially those pertaining to a personal interest or fandom? Nope, I do not color. 10/1/19 A few questions have been asked about knitted items--are crocheted equivalents acceptable? (crocheted fingerless gloves, shawls, etc.) I do not like crocheted garments unless maybe they are tunisian crochet. I'll take all of the crocheted blankets and amigurumi though! Any fiber issues? For wearing, I don't like acrylic, llama, alpaca, mohair, bfl... cashmere pills too much for me. I mostly prefer merino or merino/silk. Or merino/silk/cashmere with a low cashmere content. Acrylic and inexpensive wool or whatever is fine for amigurumi. About the Weenies: please list what you've bought or are definitely purchasing for yourself *as well as* what you would like to possibly receive from someone else! I have zero monies to spend on myself, so I won't be purchasing anything. At first perusal, these look interesting but honestly, I'd rather have NAVA. Devil's of the Pit hair gloss 1 oz decant Pumpkin Spice Silkybat Hair Gloss 1 oz decant Flesh of my Flesh perfume oil Kisses for us All perfume oil Voluptuous Wantonness Perfume Oil Lollipop Snake Oil Perfume Oil Dear Witchee, are you at all boozy? Anywhere between hard cider to straight whisk(e)y? And any interest in the "unusual" stuff? (unusual as in non-mainstream, local craft ciders or meads, regional fruit wines, experiments from local distilleries, etc) Yes, I love booze! I love unusual stuff! I have a list of things I want or want to try, which includes any fruity liqueurs from Yewberry!! We make rose liqueur and lavender vanilla bean (with our own roses and lavender.) I *love* traditional sweet meads. Love fruit wine! I get spiced blackberry and raspberry from RockRidge Orchards in Enumclaw, WA when I can afford it. Also love sweet ciders! I like hard alcohol of all types although I'm not big on tequila, it makes my throat sore. I'm highly interested in samples (or bottles, haha) of: Aperol St. Germain Chartreuse Chambord Pastis a decent absinthe Creme Yvette Drambuie Parfait d'Amour Crème de cassis Advocaat Averna Barenjaeger Benedictine Damiana Galliano Licor 43 Strega 10/2/19 Nail Polish: Do you need or want some? If so, what colors and brands are you interested in? Do I want some? I love sparklies but I rarely use them, so I don't *need* any. I have a huge wishlist for ILNP although don't go overboard because I mostly just wear it on my toes and I don't switch out quickly, so a little lasts me a long time. Vanity from the fall collection (on sale!!) is really calling my name though, along with Isabella (also on sale!) I *have* On Repeat, MEGA (L), Birefringence (H), Raven, and Night Drive. I'd kind of like a red one that doesn't have a copper or orange leaning to it, Black Orchid was the best I could find on the site so it's on my wish list. (shrug) What about postcards? I love beautiful or spooky postcards! I actually save all of my cards and postcards and letters and stuff FOREVER (what, I'm not a hoarder! Pinky swear!) and usually put up the postcards all over my desk hutch. I had to remove them when I moved three years ago and haven't gotten any since then I don't think. How do you feel about salt? I don’t mean, like, salted nuts or potato chips. I mean straight-up salt, like alder-smoked finishing salt or Hana Flake sea salt. I have a bunch of flavored salts and I love them! Problem is that I run out of grinders and have to keep getting more. I have alder smoked, garlic something, pink himalayan, sea salt, kosher salt (I keep a huge box of this), epsom salt for baths. I'd LOVE some coarse Dead Sea Salt to make my own bath salts with (I'll mix with the Pink and the Epsom.) 10/3/19 I am infamous for baking (shortbreads savory and sweet, poundcake, various cookies and bars), butter caramels (flavored or plain), and catnip. Are any of these relevant to you or your household? I love poundcake and caramels and shortbreads and .... would especially love lavender or rose flavored. And vanilla all the things! We grow our own catnip so I'm good there. Plus I have a dog, not a cat. haha. Do you like to cook and do you need/want any spices for such pursuits? I do like to cook but I'm currently living with family and someone is ALWAYS in the kitchen, so I stay out of it. I have kind of an obsession with Penzey's but since I never cook, I have WAY too many spices. Would you wear any of these? Fern , Nuada, Manannan, Duleek Abbey or an infinity scarf or tube cowl tall enough for a hood (like this scarf or this cowl for shape example)? Sorry, I am not a fan of crocheted garments. Do you have any utilitarian needs for everyday life? Things that would help or that you've been needing or wanting for work or whatever? Plenty of ideas on my various amazon and etsy wishlists. They are pretty extensive... but I can't think of anything utilitarian that I absolutely need. What kind of vegan snacks do you like? And vegan chocolate...favorites? I'm not vegan so I'm ok with whatever snacks, but I do avoid corn syrup, dyes, msg, artificial sweeteners, etc. when I can. (So most potato chips and stuff are out, because the majority contain MSG, which gives me a headache.) How would you describe your crafting style? Whimsical & Cute? Elegantly modern? Totally Traditional? Whimsical/Cute/Gothy/Nerdy-Geeky - but not country cute. But I'm sure a lot of the knitting patterns I do are just .. whatever is hot right now in the knitting world. So....we are about to process a metric f*ton of green tomato relish, which is basically bread and butter pickles but with sliced green cherry tomatoes. Is this relevant to any witchees? I don't like sweet relish or sweet pickles. I *love* dill pickles (and dill pickled anything... green beans, asparagus, carrots, whatev.) Maybe not beets though. (I only like beets in borscht.) How do you celebrate Halloween/Samhain? Do you dress up? Would you like something for your costume? And am I the only person left on the planet who wears socks? These days it's pretty much like every other day. (Halloween is every day, after all!) No, I don't dress up special although the dogs might be tormented... I don't even dress up for renn faires anymore, or cons for that matter. Nothing for my non existent costume. I do not often wear socks unless it is raining or snowing and I must wear actual shoes instead of sandals... Are you interested in anything from Art Of Tea or Adagio Teas? I have never tried Art of Tea, but I tend to buy things like flavored black teas in cinnamon, rose, chocolate, butterscotch, vanilla, chocolate orange, vanilla chai, chai with a strong anise flavor, etc. or just really nice strong black tea. I also love licorice mint basil tea (think Aveda's tea blend) or just licorice mint. And I can't live without Traditional Medicinals Breathe Easy and Throat Coat since I have huge respiratory issues. I make light-weight hairfalls, doll-style, using a variety of fun stuff, like ribbons, lace and soft batting. Would you be interested in receiving a set in the colors of your choosing? Maybe? I live out in the country and never go anywhere so I'm afraid they wouldn't get good use. And a quick question here--I'm going to this amazing looking event on Saturday--does my witchee see anything they might be interested in? (the Oddities Market) I didn't see anything on the photos listed and I'm hurt too much (shoulders/neck) to stay by the computer very long today, sorry. But I love sugar skulls, bats, ravens, pibbles, friesians, hippocampus.. I don't really need any jewelry per se, but I took a beading class so I could use interesting and weird beads and findings? I have a collection of gargoyles and grotesques, nice roses made from different mediums (leather, silk, metal - not cheap ones from michaels or halloween stuff.) Oh, and of course Krampus and Cthulhu!! How do you feel about enamel pins? Love them, hate them, slightly interested, totally indifferent? So they're one of those things I'm weird about. I have a ton of enamel pins but I've literally never taken any out of their packages because I don't wear them or use them. But people have gotten me some from Disneyland (Malificent and Jack Skellington), I backed some in a kickstarter because so cute (cute egyptian gods), I have some alchemical symbol ones from Stryx Publishing (Seattle) - Leviation Cross and Monas Hieroglyphica, etc. But yeah, they all live in a cookie jar. Oh, and I got the full set with my Last Unicorn tarot kickstarter package but I'll probably trade, gift, or sell those because there isn't even a unicorn one! So, to make a long story short (too late), I'm slightly interested if it is relevant to my interests and tastes, otherwise do not want. I should really start putting them all on a cloth and then inside a frame or something so I can look at them. what is your T-shirt/shirt of choice Size? I wear a women's 2X from TeeTurtle (the only place I have purchased t-shirts lately.) men's t-shirts just don't fit properly. OCTOBER LUNACY! I know turn around time is unlikely, but just saying (JUST SAYING), dear Witchee, did anything catch your eye? Not this lunacy, but they're still up - I want the vanilla/carnation duet because I've heard good things. And the patchouli/tobacco (dang, oos.) and the red rose/tobacco. And the amber/oud. Man, I guess I haven't been paying attention because I don't have any monies to spend, haha. I have a bunch of red rose/tobacco scents, so the amber/oud and the vanilla/carnation would be priorities. So Blood Moon Botanica is having an update soon. It's a surprise what will be listed (besides the Moon Dew serum), but you can take a look at past items on her web page: https://archaichoney.com/bloodmoonbotanica (Britton used to run Haus of Gloi.) Witchee, are you interested in anything from the Blood Moon Botanica update? I would love more Moon Dew serum and I'm a fan of her tea and other things. The calming elixir and linden flower elixir both look good, as does the turkey tail. If I was to donate to an animal rescue on your behalf as the "lucyboo" component of this swap, is there one in particular that you would choose? I love bats in particular but there was a local pet place here that spayed/neutered all of the feral cats on our place at no cost to us (one cat moved in... pregnant... had kittens... those kittens had kittens.. we trapped them all, kittens got rehomed, adult ferals got to live here after getting fixed/shots. We only see them on the security cameras but we feed them.) So long story short (too late), maybe Pet Savers in Spokane? https://www.petsaversspokane.org/ What is your very favorite Halloween candy? If you don't have one/don't do candy, what's a seasonal treat you love? I've been totally eyeing the halloween mice, bats, and stuff at Burdick chocolate (https://www.burdickchocolate.com/halloween.aspx) - some of those truffles sound delicious! But they're expensive so, yeah. We make the smitten kitchen pumpkin bread every year (since 2016, so... three years. Made some already this year as soon as it was fall.) I like caramel apples. Fisher fair scones remind me of fall because it's a weird Washington thing I guess. (I don't know if I've seen the mix for sale in Spokane, it's all over in Seattle.) Kettle corn, fresh from an actual kettle (used to get it at the corn mazes/pumpkin patches every year in the Seattle area.) Pumpkin hard cider! I am not a fan of "pumpkin spice" though. Salted caramel mocha at sbux (with hardly any mocha, although honestly it's pretty much the same thing I usually have there - toffee nut latte, but add some salt, caramel on top, and mocha. The gingerbread is my favorite though it doesn't usually come out until after Halloween, if it comes at all. and I usually do flavored stevia in my coffee so having sbux is a huge sugar jolt that I don't indulge in often.) Whatever seasonal selections are available from localish chocolate places like Frans, Moonstruck, Boehms, Theo, Seattle Chocolates/JCOCO, etc. Trader Joes seasonal stuff. World Market seasonal stuff. I just got an email from Lush that their Christmas stuff is now up online! anything you might like? OMG, ALL THE THINGS. I got that email too and went and looked... now I have tons more stuff on my Amazon bath & body wishlist. I'm most excited about: Snowflake body lotion Sleepy Dust Snow Fairy Amazeball Boo Shower Slime Bath bombs If you were my witchee, would you enjoy home made (canned) preserves? I'm going home to Can All The Things & I'm thinking some bananas foster butter/sauce might be a nifty thing for you. I've never had such a thing as bananas foster. But yes, all the home made preserves and stuffs!! I am in Las Vegas is there anything you would want from here? A Las Vegas starbucks gift card (can be empty, I just want the card. I have New York, Miami, and Seattle... not a very big collection. They usually make you load at least $5 though.) If you make it to the Vosges store and they have chocolate skulls, one of those would be cool. My favorite flavor is the Naga (coconut curry milk chocolate.)
