    The Elephant is Slow to Mate

    Wet: Smokey, dark, rich berries. I can't stop sniffing this. Dry: Fairly close to the wet stage, but the berries are a little more prominent. Reminds me a touch of Midnight Kiss, minus the chocolate. I hope a decant will be enough!

    Asses Plus Long, Qu’un Siècle Platonique

    Wet: Soapy white rose. Dry: Soap, be gone! What remains is a sweetened white rose scent. A little bit creamy, maybe. I don't smell anything reminiscent of caramelized benzoin sadly, but this is still a nice white rose scent for those who may be looking for one.

    Vanilla Cream, Pistachio, and Macadamia

    Wet: Pistachio! Heavy on that cherry-like pistachio scent mentioned by previous reviewers. Dry: The cherry scent is totally gone now. This is... a sugar-free pistachio ice cream? I can't pick out the macadamia at all, but I can get the vanilla cream now. It's not very sweet on me, at all - an understated vanilla/pistachio scent. In a good way!

    Raspberry Apricot Sufganiyot

    Wet: HHHHNG. That's the good stuff. Raspberry-apricot jam! Dry: Raspberry always worries me a bit, as it has a tendency to go plastic on my skin. Luckily, much like Raspberry Sufganiyot, this does not! In comparing it to "plain" Raspberry Suf, I would say this one is more about the fruit than the dough. This one is also less sweet than Raspberry Suf IMO, but I enjoy the addition of the apricot enough to where... I think I prefer this one. All that said, it's another delicious sufganiyot scent, and I'm happy to have grabbed a bottle. Current sufganiyot ranking: Blueberry, Pomegranate, Strawberry, Fig & Cranberry, Raspberry Apricot, Raspberry, Blackcurrant.

    Midwarkust

    Midway - Funnel cake, caramel apple, cotton candy, salt water taffy and sugar tart. Lust - Red musk, patchouli, ylang ylang and myrrh. Darkness - Blackest opium and narcissus deepened by myrrh. Wet: More than anything, I'm getting a Lust type of scent here, minus the patchouli. There's something that almost smells like.. red wine? It's note a note listed in any of the scents, but I'm wondering if that's coming from a mix of Lust and Midway. A juicy, sweeter Lust, maybe? Dry: I'm still getting that wine scent, and I'm going to take a guess as to why - the taffy and cotton candy from Midway and the red musk from Lust? (I'm just going to convince myself that made sense.) Anyway, I would say the scent is still very Lust dominant, but it's backed up by the sweetness that Midway brings in. Nothing in here is reminiscent of Darkness to me. This scent was not at all what I was thinking it would smell like, but I am INTO IT. If you went in hoping for a stronger Midway scent, I think you may be disappointed though.

    Sugar Cookie Snow White

    Wet: Unsurprisingly, this is a fairly even mix of Sugar Cookie and Snow White so far! Dry: Snow White ends up being stronger than Sugar Cookie on me (like a 75/25 split); it smells like Snow White being gently warmed by sugar cookies. (So think cold, icy florals backed by warm sugar cookies.) Sugar Cookie Snow White > Snow White. That's right.
  7. Wet: I had to sniff this one many, many times to try and describe what I was smelling. This is going to sound weird, but this is the best description I've got - coconut cream soda with a hint of cinnamon. Dry: Pretty spot on to the wet stage, only more coconut. Not my jam.

    Tiramisu Funnel Cake

    FYI - I do have skin sensitivity to cinnamon, and my skin turned bright red where I applied this. Wet: Cocoa powder and pastry dough. It's like the beginning stages of baking, it just needs to be thrown into the oven! Not getting any coffee scents here. Dry: Funnel cake lightly dusted in cocoa powder and cinnamon. Not getting more of a tiramisu scent, so depending on what you're looking for (and your skin chemistry), this might be a little disappointing. Me, however.. yes. Into this.
  9. Wet: Baked apples and HEAVY spices. Dry: Spices, spices, and more spices. No apples, no icing, no sweet potato, no pie crust, nada. Not really my jam. I love baking spices, but not on their own.

    Peach Brandy Snake Oil

    Wet: BOOZE. Straight up peach brandy, no Snake Oil (yet). Dry: Peach brandy and patchouli. It's not really reading as Snake Oil; it's more like it's hinting that it's LEADING to Snake Oil, but never fully gets there. I expect, as with other S.O. scents, that the Snake Oil will come out more with some aging. Right now, this is a like, but not love.
  11. Wet: Peach flavored marshmallow. Dry: Oooo, okay. This is more like toasted marshmallows, with extra vanilla, and peaches. (Not really like a fresh peach, but not canned peaches either; somewhere in between. Maybe a peach that's been cut up and sitting in the fridge for a day or two?) The toasted marshmallow + vanilla scent is stronger than the peach on me. Another winner!

    Vanilla Wafers and Peach Cream

    Wet: Oh man. The more I smell this, the more I like it. Lots of sweet peach and vanilla cream. I'm getting a slight pastry-ish note that must be the "wafer", but it's not very strong. I keep going back and huffing it, because so far it's THAT good. YUM. Dry: It might be be too soon.. but.. I.. love.. this? The peach is more syrupy and still plenty sweet, backed up by that vanilla cream. The pastry note is maybe more cake-ish now? I can't figure out what I really think about it other than "pastry!" Overall, this scent is totally up my alley. Really stoked about this.

    Vanilla Cream and Pear

    Wet: Shockingly.. vanilla and pear! More pear than vanilla. The pear smells very fresh, like biting into a pear and getting a big whiff of vanilla along with it. Something smells borderline floral or maybe "green" in here as well. Dry: Okay, so comparing this to both The Vine and The Perilous Parlor - this has the most prominent pear scent out of the three, and smells the most "fresh". The pear is MUCH more dominant over the vanilla here, and I'm still getting that faint floral/green note in the background. IMO, as a pear lover, this is worth it even if you own the other scents mentioned.

    Erotic Sake Bowl

    Wet: Oooo! Sparkling, sugary sweet citrus! Gorgeous yuzu and pink grapefruit. (Very much a "HI WAKE UP HEY THERE WHAT'S UP" type of scent so far.) Dry: My sparkling citrus scent has gone a bit... flat. Not so "sparkling" anymore; that fun effervescence from the wet stage is totally gone. I think I'll stick to Squirting Shoggoth or Pink Grapefruit and Pomelo.

    Snake Smut

    Disclaimer: I don't like Smut, but I DO love Snake Oil. Wet: Cardamom and Smut. I'm incredibly surprised that I don't detect Snake Oil.. anywhere? Dry: Okay, so this blend did a total flip flop on me... now I can only smell Snake Oil. (A "softer" Snake Oil, but still.) ... ... Well then. I love Snake Oil, but if I wanted to just wear Snake Oil... I would!
