    Zombie Moon

    Homemade blood clot-and-cherry ice cream plopping onto moonlit sand. Wet: Sweet cherries and ice cream! (Reminiscent of maraschino cherries.) Dry: The cherries are still going strong (and still smell like maraschino to me), but the ice cream smells more.. melted? If you left ice cream with some cherries plopped on top out in the sun, I think it might smell like this. I dig it! I'm not sure I'm getting any of the "moonlit sand" component, but as a foodie scent lover, this is great!

    Tea Roses and Lace

    Wet: Vanilla, tea, roses, peony, and chocolate. Creamy florals! The tea note is stronger than I thought it would be, and the chocolate is kind of tempering the floral notes for me. Dry: It feels like all the notes are fighting for their place in the spotlight. I can smell vanilla, roses, peony, chocolate, tobacco, and a smidgen of lavender. The tea note was overpowered by the other notes, I think. I do like this and will enjoy my bottle, but the creaminess from the wet stage is really missing from the dry down. I think aging will help bring everything together, though!

    I Suppose You Are a Princess Hair Gloss

    Previous reviews have mentioned an overall "creamy"ness to the blend, and I have to agree! This is a creamy, sugary sweet pea scent; perfect for someone like me who isn't a fan of straight-floral blends! Gorgeous scent, and it lasts all day in my hair. Winner!

    Kitty Hair Gloss

    Kitty Fisher was born into a life with very few prospects for advancement. She was the daughter of a modest Lutheran silver chaser, and in her youth, she worked as a milliner's assistant. Longing for something more, she capitalized on her natural beauty, her wits, and her boldness, and launched a career as one of Britain's preeminent courtesans. Her beauty was legendary, and she was the muse of many famed artists of her time, including Joshua Reynolds, Philip Mercier, and James Northcote. Her barbed wit, free lifestyle, and love of excess constantly landed her on the front page of Britain's gossip rags. She fell in love with the grandson of Admiral Sir John Norris, and gave up her career to marry him. She settled in as lady of the house, and turned her talents to building her husband's fortune and generously providing assistance to the poor. French vanilla, tot house orchids, strawberries, white sandalwood, bergamot, and honey. Compared to the perfume version, the honey is much stronger here! (Actually, I would say honey is the star of the show.) This is honey, french vanilla, orchid, and strawberry. In both the perfume and HG, I don't really get any of the bergamot. I described the wet version as an "a classier, more elegant version of a foodie scent", and I think that goes for this version as well. It's decently sweet, but I wouldn't say to candy-levels of sweetness. It's really, really gorgeous.

    Mischievous Cat Hair Gloss

    Upon first spray, I'm hit by a blast of juicy peach! When it dries it the hair though, I'm really just left with a sweet, warm amber type of scent. The fruit doesn't stick around, at all. I was REALLY looking forward to a warm-golden-peachy hair gloss, and this fell a bit short. (... in my hair.) I think this is nice, but for me it's not unique enough to grab a big bottle of.

    Poisoned Apple

    Wet: Apple! A little juicy, a little tart. Nothing poison-smelling yet. Dry: I'm getting that same apple scent from the wet stage, but with a dark element now. I'm pretty sure it's the hemlock note; I haven't tried too many blends with this note (only 4), but I think this is similar to the poisonous note I was smelling in Cleopatra Testing Poisons on Those Condemned to Death. I like it! I don't think this is big bottle worthy for me, but I'll keep the imp around.

    Fancy-Free Hair Gloss

    My eyes rolled into the back of my head when I smelled this. This is a very bright, tart, lemon candy scent. I'm not getting any ambrette seed. It reminds me a LOT of Lemon-Scented Sticky Bat. If that sounds at all appealing to you, I'd highly recommend trying this out.

    Honey and Sweet Labdanum

    Wet: I have to agree with marared; "fizzy honey cream soda" is basically the perfect description of what I'm smelling. This isn't very strong on me, though; I had to slather this a bit to get a good whiff. Dry: Somehow the same as the wet stage, only with a tad more throw. Don't love it, don't hate it, will definitely hold on to the decant.

    Wet: Musky, warm... pencil shavings. Dry: Okay, so the good news is the pencil shavings scent disappeared! Hooray! ... The bad news is, the only thing I can smell now is musk. Like, a single note musk scent. 😐

    Honey, Rum, and Spiced Fig Hair Gloss

    I can smell everything here; the honey, rum, and spiced fig are all present! The spiced fig note is strongest IMO, followed by the honey and rum. Whatever the spices are in here.. they're making me think of Christmas or Thanksgiving. When I first took I whiff, I thought "holidays!" I think I'll hold on to my little spray decant, but this won't be a big bottle purchase.

    Peep Show Hair Gloss

    Sweet, honeyed strawberries! More of a strawberry candy scent rather than fresh strawberries, IMO. I can't detect any vetiver here, but I'm not necessarily sad about that... This reminds me of Strawberry Moon 2009. (Smelled like fruit leather on me!)

    Basket of Abalone

    Wet: First thing out the gate is grapefruit, followed by seafoam and a small kick of pink pepper! I'm really digging the grapefruit and seafoam combo; it's a fresh grapefruit-aquatic scent. Dry: In short; this went from being citrus-dominant, to aquatic-dominant. Getting something a bit sour smelling now. Most of the grapefruit is gone, as well as the pink pepper. I'm still getting some seafoam, along with ambergris, but compared to the wet stage... not a winner. I'm super disappointed this didn't work well on my skin. The wet stage was big bottle worthy!

    Humorous Copulation

    Wet: Bright, sugary lemon with tea and cream! Has a dessert feel to it, but it's not as sugary-sweet as Lemon Scented Sticky Bat (where it smells more like lemon icing). Dry: While the lemon and tea smelled like different entities during the wet stage, I'd say now the scent is very much.. lemon tea. (A faint lemon tea, at that.) Not nearly as sweet as the wet stage, either; just the natural sweetness coming from the lemon. I like it and will hang on to my decant!

    Low-Hanging Junk

    Wet: Yep, I agree with z_z. This is... cola. Not in the sense of it being "fizzy" at all, because it's not. It's just.. cola! Dry: Flat cola!

    Snake's Tongue

    Wet: The Snake Oil is actually pretty faint. Tobacco, vanilla, and the oak are the prominent notes, with S.O. more in the background. Dry: Powdery Snake Oil with a touch of tobacco. 😐
