    A Rebus

    SUPER JASMINE! This floral is not for the faint of heart. Along wih the jasmine, I notice another floral...perhaps tuberose. I don't get any oakmoss. Just solid, strong florals. It's pretty nice, but I have other jasmine blends I prefer.

    Even softer than Neuf...ghostly whispers of rose petals, with hints of vanilla and saffron. I'm not sure what the "ancient spices" are otherwise. It's a little too faint and delicate for me.

    Soft roses blended with woodsy/resinous notes. The woods are more prominent than the rose, which is actually very delicate. A sweet and subtle fragrance, lovely in its gentle way.

    We Believe that Death is Not the End of Man

    Like the pitch black center of a pine forest at night. Think Black Forest but darker. The darkest woods, nuts, resins, tar. I love it!

    A View of Cascading Cherry Blossoms

    Light cherry blossom blended with sweet strawberries. If you've tried the strawberry-scented Dial soap, it's similar, lol. This is an innocent, girly scent - my 8-year-old daughter would love this.

    Aristocratic Prostitutes in Languid Repose

    Sweet and seductive, an exotic floral blend. The jasmine is so sexy with the wisps of poppy smoke curling through, and the dark, lush fruitiness of plum. Date night scent for sure!

    Diligent Instruction for the Bridal Night

    Must have a bottle!! Juicy sweet strawberries with a dusting of powdered sugar and creamy marshmallow. I really want to sniff mallow blossoms in real life some times, because I never have and this is amazing and just perfumy enough to wear to work, not totally foody. Love. So. Much.

    The Sun's Treasure

    Energizing, happy, vibrant, warm, sweet, refreshing! The amber and orange blossom are SO complimentary. The oudh makes it dry and warm and like a cologne. I love sweet orange blossom, it's one of the best notes for mood I think! The honey is a gorgeous addition and makes the whole thing quite sexy!

    A Hailstorm of Knitting-Needles

    Just as roseus said, tea and vanilla mostly, with an undertone of polished mahogany. I'd like a tea that smelled this good, and I'm also happy to wear this perfume! Elegant and refined.

    Autumn - Overlooked My Knitting

    First impression - very similar to the "autumn leaves/cologne" note in October. More bitter and masculine than I expected. As it dries down, that sharpness smooths out and the distinctive warmth of ambergris appears. Soft and grey like fuzzy wool. But there's still a bitter note I dislike, and it somehow smells like Mexican food of all things, which I've also gotten with Bella Donna de mia Mente. Who knows!?

    My Happy Day

    Washable acrylic on economy craft paper, 2011 This is my happy day. My happy day is always purple. Plum sugar, blackcurrant bud absolute, pink jasmine, effervescent elemi, purple carnation, honeysuckle nectar, and champagne grape.  Bubbly jasmine. Like, jasmine flavored LaCroix! That bubbly! No carnation, maybe a little blackcurrant or plum, just adding a very light fruity sweetness. It's mostly fizzy jasmine. Makes me smile!

    Storyboard: Julius Caesar

    Deep yellow-brown oil. This reminds me at first of my beloved GC Athens, due to the strong myrrh note. And then, not blood, but wine -- fruity and tart! And here's soapy iris, and rose. As it dries...no more wine, just sweet myrrh and florals. So sweet it's almost candy-like. I like it but a decant will suffice.

    Cat Chasing Butterflies

    Hey, it's the creamy almond milk note that I love from Organ Grinder! Here it blends with a pop of fizzy sweet peach blossom. Almost like a peach champagne, fun and flirty. No amber or musk that I can tell. This is a vivacious, bubbly scent. I think I prefer the earthiness of Organ Grinder, as far as almond blends go.

    Caressing the Wild Rabbit

    Orchid, blended with a fruity, sweet tea. I'm not getting specifically a honeycomb note, so much as honey-sweetened tea. It's nice but it's one of those floral blends that feels too mature for me.

    I will buy anything with star jasmine listed among the notes! Unfortunately, this one didn't work out. The orris is far more noticeable than the jasmine or the honeysuckle. I was hoping for the jasmine to be front and center. Orris is sweet, so dry, so powdery. Not really getting any other notes out of it, so I will swap.
