    Just Before Penetration

    Just Before Penetration: pink fig smells like it sounds, fig, but make it Barbie pink. This is a sweet scent, but not candied. The sweetness comes from the ripe fruit and vanilla kissing. The cream isn't lactonic, but more like a soft fuzziness. This is Awake after she's taken off her slinky dress and make up and is fresh faced and sweet, wrapped up in her fuzzy pink robe.

    Fierce Midnights and Famishing Morrows

    Fierce Midnights and Famishing Morrows: I smell all three notes when I put this on. The lily is well-behaved, the plum is sweet and purple, and the tobacco is rich and brown. Then, honestly, I have no idea what's happening. They all blend together to make a new note. It's like a tobacco colored plum blossom SN that melds with my skin. This isn't as loud as I thought it was going to be. This is another scent I keep sniffing to understand.

    Iris in a Vase

    Irises in a Vase: first, SUGAR! A really glorious sugar, I'd say simple syrup. Then the floral notes start stepping forward. This is a really pretty iris. It's like an iris infused simple syrup or candied iris petals. There's a little spiciness that keeps this from being cloying and a little teeny bit of green leaf.

    Wolf Moon: Green Fig & Cedar

    Green Fig & Cedar: there are no hamster shavings here. This gives an impression of both young fruit and a young tree. The cedar here isn't cut wood, but what I think a tree must smell like on the inside. There's bark and fresh wood. It's a little earthy but not dirty. The cedar isn't the dominant note. It's what the fig hangs out on. The fig is slightly powdery and has a hint of the figgy sweetness waiting in the future, but it's distinctly unripe and green. I don't know if I like this scent, but I keep sniffing it to reveal more of the story it wants to tell.

    Collapsing Mosquito Netting

    Collapsing Mosquito Netting is green, it's wet, juicy vine with a suggestion of spring florals. There's a period of savoriness that could read as French fry. It doesn't last thankfully. Overall, I'm disappointed because I wanted more morning glory, but it's strangled, appropriately, by the vine.

    Frankincense, Bourbon Vanilla, & Hazelnut

    This is all about the warm, nutty hazelnut. The nut dominates the blend for most of the wear with a really nice vanilla stepping up lightly in the background. It never fully balances out the hazelnut. If you want a cozy hazelnut blend, this is for you.

    St. Clare

    sweet, syrupy rum and tobacco with sandalwood incense and powdery oud
  8. Starts off spicy, dry, dusty white sandalwood, then the ghost lily joins and adds a floral soapy note. I don't think I'm getting much ambergris. This is mainly a very nice, expensive, sandalwood/lily soap on me.

    Mmmm, this is BPAL's chewy honey note with some light florals. It reminds me of the honey in O.

    Tongue Wall

    Tangy guava - like guava paste or a guava fruit roll up
  11. biggnerd


    This starts off banana runts. It has that strong, artificial banana smell that's so sweet it's almost tangy (I think that's the grenadine). It settles into a sweetened rum scent with tangy grenadine wafting in and out.

    To His Mistress Going to Bed

    This is a strong, chewy, dirty patch sweetened up by earthy fig.

    Cranberry, Tonka, and Amber

    tart sweet cranberry, grassy vanillic tonka, golden, lightly powdery amber - the amber is a supporting note with the tonka and cranberry being most forward. It's a cranberry tonka scent.

    Green Cardamom, Irish Fern, and Hinoki

    greeeeeeen, it's like absinthe without the anise, it's very green but not in a grassy, forest way.

    Young Witches at Play in the Night Sky

    mmmmm, misty magnolia. The white musk is well behaved, the orris isn't powdery, the juniper is fresh and not ginny or soapy.
