    The Coiled Serpent

    Wet: Patchouli. Dry, chewy patchouli. Straightforward. Dry: Sandalwood (red, I think?) and that same dry patchouli. Overall a very "dry" earthy and woody scent. I do enjoy patchouli from time to time, but this isn't the scent for me.

    Caramel, Smoked Chilis, & Black Vanilla

    Wet: Smokey vanilla caramel! The chili is here, but it's not overpowering the blend like I thought it would - it's more just adding a depth and overall warmth to the blend. It's much nicer than I originally thought it would be. Dry: This stays pretty true to the wet stage - if anything, the chili may be slightly stronger. The caramel and vanilla are both present without being sweet and cloying; they're there, but they're not being obnoxious. If you're looking for a foodie scent that doesn't involve anything super sweet, this might be a good one to try!

    Sweet Amber and Cherry Liqueur Hair Gloss

    Cherry liquor, right off the bat! There's something very fizzy-like here, reminiscent of a champagne type of scent(just minus the champagne scent itself; only the fizzy bubbles here). When it dries, I can finally smell the amber, but the cherry liquor disappeared? It smells like fizzy amber now. Wet stage no amber, dry stage no cherry. Well then. 😐

    Blueberries, Cream, & Cardamom

    Wet: Blueberries. Ohhhh baby. Creamy, sweet, delicious blueberries. Almost like a cream cheese with blueberries scent. The cardamom is there, but it's pretty light; the blueberries are, by far, the strongest scent. Dry: So good. The cardamom is coming out a lot more, and it's basically hugging the other notes and bringing everything together. A little less sweet than the wet stage. Definitely foodie. This is different than some of my other favorite blueberry scents(Blueberry Sufganiyot, Blue Phoenix V.2, Blueberry Cream Pie, and Bones Trombone) - the lack of pastry note here and the addition of cardamom makes this one special. Blueberries.. I love you.

    Lavender, Sea Salt & Rain

    Wet: My immediate thought is Angels on Bare Skin by Lush.. but with more salt. As soon as I thought that, I KNEW I had the same thought about another perfume, but couldn't remember which. I ended up digging through my past reviews, and it ended up being Old Scratch and Baku. Maybe the same lavender is being used? Shrug. Dry: This is SO. MUCH. BETTER. when it dries. It's beautiful. This smells like standing near the ocean on a rainy day, with some fresh lavender nearby. I can smell the lavender, sea salt, and rain. (A little bit sweet, as well.) I was worried it would go the dryer sheet or detergent route, but it didn't. This is beautiful.

    Maraschino Cherry Buttercream Hair Gloss

    First spirtz, maraschino cherry buttercream smells like.. well... maraschino cherry buttercream. A slight hint of almonds as well. The cherries are more on the artificial smelling side; like sniffing them straight from a jar where they're suspended in syrup. It goes a bit plastic-y in my hair as it dries, which unfortunately doesn't make this a winner for me.

    Cotton Candy, Strawberry & Lime Zest

    Wet: I LOVE strawberry and lime together, and that's what's coming out swinging here! I'm not getting any cotton candy (yet). Dry: Welcome to the party, cotton candy! In order of strongest note to least - strawberry, lime, cotton candy. Kind of reminds me of a strawberry pie with lime zest? Definitely foodie and sweet.

    Couple Reading Erotic Scroll

    Wet: Immediately after applying - blackberry juice! Strongest note, by far. After a minute, I'm getting more of a blackberry tea kind of scent, with some rice milk, and a hit of bergamot. Dry: This one doesn't morph much when it dries; I would still describe this is a blackberry tea with some rice milk.. just minus the bergamot. I'm loving how strong the blackberry note is, and it's totally bottle worthy. So good.

    Party Tricks Hair Gloss

    Ohhh, this is pretty! A warm, sweet, creamy, strawberry chypre scent. (When I say "sweet" it's more a general sweetness, not anything candy-like.) I agree with previous reviews - this is a very "pink" scent, and will probably appeal to a lot of people. It's easy to wear, and I could see this pairing with a LOT of different perfumes. The only downfall is it doesn't last too long in the hair. I'd say it's gone after about 3-4 hours.

    The Death Grapple

    Wet: Yep. Lavender and still-fizzy coke. Dry: I would say more labdanum (aka fizzy coke) now than lavender, but they're still both present. This is... such an odd scent. A strange combination, but it works for me. I'm considering a bottle, but I know I'll be at least keeping my decant. I think everyone needs to try this!

    Wet: Spring in a freaking bottle (okay, decant) right here. Apple wine and flowers. Soft, juicy, floral, sweet. Very pretty. Dry: Sadly, most of the apple wine has faded off. I'm left with some type of .. white floral note, maybe? and skin musk. The apple wine was the star of the show for me, so not bottle worthy, sadly.

    Fudge Brownie and Butterscotch Hair Gloss

    Good lord. First spray... fudge. Rich, sweet, sticky, fresh, decadent chocolate fudge. My head is in a strongly scented cloud of fudge. It's awesome. The butterscotch doesn't show up for me until after it dries in my hair, then it's like a fudgey-butterscotch tango. The throw isn't as strong as it was earlier, but I can definitely smell it when I move my hair around.

    Pink Cherry & Pink Pepper

    Wet: A cherry tootsie pop (before you get to the.. "chocolate"). Dry: Ah, there's the pink pepper! Unfortunately, most of the cherry is gone. Strong on the pink pepper, light on the cherry. Pretty light scent overall, though. Darn. I'll probably keep this around just to use up in my hair.

    Green Lovebird

    Wet: MINT. Vanilla mint. Strong. Up my nose. Clearing out my sinuses. Mint. (Pistachio, I'm rooting for you to come out on the dry down!) Dry: Most the vanilla has died off, but the sugary has AMPED. A very, very sweet mint scent. Sadly... no pistachio, here, which is the main reason why I wanted to try this out. If you're a mint lover, this is worth a try, just don't be expecting much(if any) pistachio.

    A Prostitute's Account of Vernal Love

    Wet: Bring on the red musk! The red musk comes out swinging, and is being backed by the cherry wood(make no mistake about the "wood" part; you can smell it here). No apricot or fig here yet; I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the red musk doesn't overwhelm them. Apricot and red musk would be SO nice. Dry: Sweeter than the wet stage, but I'm still not getting any apricot or figgy goodness (though I suppose one of them may be contributing to the added sweetness). The red musk is still dominant, but not as "POW" as before; it's mellowed quite a bit. The cherry wood is still backing up the red musk. This is nice, but nothing special on me.
