    The Bear Prince Hair Gloss

    Shaggy fur, snow-flecked and rose-touched. The snow in here definitely smells minty. Like a snow-covered rose, with just a hint of mint. The shaggy fur isn't really coming through, but there is a slight warmth to the blend when it dries it my hair. Lasts for a few hours before fading away.

    Snow White Hair Gloss

    (2018 version.) Smells just like the last perfume version I tried(2007, I think?). Snow, vanilla, coconut, pine, flowers, and the barest touch of almond. This works far better on me as a hair gloss than on my skin... BUT it doesn't seem to last very long. 30 minutes later, and it's totally gone.

    Wet: Soap and ozone. (So... soap and rain. Kinda smells like a shower.) Dry: Dryer sheets.

    2003: Cotton Phoenix

    I forgot to review this... whooops! Wet: Snake Oil and almond! Sweeter than normal S.O., thanks to the marshmallow I'm sure. Dry: Sweet, almond Snake Oil. While it does contain some foodie elements, it's not what I would describe as a foodie scent. As far as the Snow White note goes, I don't smell anything in the blend that reminds me of it. (Which, for me, is a good thing; when I tried out Snow White several years ago, it smelled like pine and plastic on me.) I love this scent so, so much; it's absolutely worth seeking out if you enjoy Snake Oil.

    Snow and White Musk Hair Gloss

    Upon first spray; mint! More of a "cold" mint; like mint and snow. I'm actually not getting any of the vanilla that previous reviewers are. This is really just a cold, minty ozone scent in my hair.

    Rose Red Hair Gloss

    (2018 version.) Roses! Sweet, freshly cut roses. A slightly ozone note, maybe? The scent of roses after it's been raining is what it reminds me of. The scent lingers in the hair, but isn't too strong. A really nice rose hair gloss!

    The Red Snowman

    Wet: Straight to the point - tobacco and steel. This is surprisingly light on the skin, I expected it to have a much greater throw. Dry: Super light tobacco, and what smells like.. red musk? Blood musk? Not really sure. It's so light on my skin, that it's hard to tell what it is.

    The Pale Snowman

    Wet: Vanilla incense and ozone. Like.. a mix of vanilla incense burning in the snow. Dry: All vanilla incense, all the time. The dry-down is simple, but I mean. Come on. VANILLA. INCENSE.

    Red Currant and Juniper Berry Hair Gloss

    As red as blood, as sweet as death, and as green as rebirth. The red currant starts out pretty strong. We're talking about 80% red currant, and 20% juniper berry. When it dries in the hair, it's more of a 50/50 split for me. This is like red currants that were hanging out in the woods with some pine trees. There's almost some kind of lemon scent present as well... or perhaps that's just my nose being crazy. It smells more festive than I thought! I also like it much more than I originally anticipated as well; I love red currant, but I wasn't sure about the juniper berry. Lovely!

    The Black Snowman

    Wet: Deep, dark tobacco and oudh. It's pretty overwhelming. A little bit of a floral note coming through as well, which must be the black magnolia. Dry: The tobacco is much, much lighter than the wet stage, as well as the oudh. The black magnolia has more or less taken over as the dominant scent. I would almost describe this as smelling... poisonous? Oudh can go pretty terrible on my skin, but it seems to be playing well here. This is a dark floral blend with a touch of tobacco and oudh.

    The White Snowman

    Wet: Sweet, minty lemon, with some type of.. almost herbal, note, that I'm assuming to be the white moss. Dry: The white moss has disappeared, and I'm left with strong mint and lemon. Like a candy cane with both the normal mint, and some lemon as well. Fairly light on the skin.

    Candy Canes, Powdered Sugar, Snickerdoodles, and Vanilla Cream

    WHEW, that initial blast of mint went right up my nose! This starts out pretty mint heavy; I'd say strong mint, and sugar cookies. My hair definitely retains some of that mint once it dries in the hair, but it basically flip flops as far as the strength goes. More of a sugar cookie scent, with a touch of mint in the background.

    Wet: Cinnamon and some kind of baked good. Almost like cinnamon and honey? Definitely foodie. (It's not a red hots cinnamon, more like.. a cinnamon roll.) Dry: Still has that cinnamon-baked-goods scent. It stayed remarkably similar to the wet stage, which doesn't happen too often! The cinnamon isn't overpowering, at all. It's a nice scent, and I'll hold on to my imp, but I won't need a big bottle.

    Song of the Otherworld

    Wet: I'm a fan of opoponax, and this smells like a cold, slushy opoponax with some blue musk. (It's also a note that can totally amp on my skin, and/or turn to bubblegum, so keep that in mind.) Dry: Getting more of the tree notes now (I think the fir is sticking out the most), but the opoponax is still the strongest note on my skin. (The blue musk and that snow slush are still there, too.) I do wish the champaca would have made an appearance, though; it's usually a note that plays well on me. It's actually quite pretty, but I know this isn't something I'd wear more than once or twice a year. I'll hold on to my decant, but I won't need to upgrade.

    Tenth Lash

    Wet: My nose wrinkled up a bit upon smelling this. It kind of smells like cherry coke plus cedar? Strange. Dry: Still cherry coke and cedar, just lighter than the wet stage. I think the bitter almond may not be playing well with my skin chemistry. Very, very odd.
