    The Houses At The Back – Frosty Morning

    This is a light, wispy scent. The amber and lilac go together nicely. This isn't a heady lilac, it's more an imprint of lilacs you smelled long ago or are far away. The amber is the soft, almost powdery kind that serves as a foundation but isn't overt. This is a pleasant scent, but too light for me. It's like when you put on a sweater you haven't worn in a while and you smell the perfume you last wore on it.

    Honeyed Mushroom and Incense

    This is heavy on the incense (is that fucking nag champa ruining the party again?), and light on the honey and mushroom.

    Spurious Cooter Bees

    I knew I was in trouble when I started hearing things like "fizzy" and "champagne." Those types of notes tend to go soapy on me and Spurious Cooter Bees is no exception. This is a fizzy ginger ale soap.

    Wild Nights – Wild Nights!

    This is predominantly black musk on me with a little red musk and soft, sweet cardamom.

    A Winter’s Walk in the Cemetery

    Sweet, dry grass, roses, and lilies, a touch of dry, papery dead leaves, cool, green cypress comes out later. I don't get lavender or Dorian.
  6. Salty, buttered peach popcorn. I could see this smelling like traditional peach cobbler - with the biscuits on top.
  7. Dryer sheets with a hint of peach and bergamot.

    Blue Snowballs

    Starts off non-minty snow note. Normally I really dislike the Lab's snow notes, but here it's soft and just chilly. The blueberry is there just being quiet and sweet. The snow burns off quickly and leaves a soft, sugary blueberry. I get a little hit of lime that helps keep it atmospheric instead of fruity or gourmand. I don't get blackberry, which I'm happy about because it goes soapy on me.

    Paper Kite

    Starts off as a strong, almost minty herb, then becomes an herbal, almost medicinal coconut (not as unpleasant as it sounds), then creamy, sweet coconut SN.

    A Skull, A Music Book, A Snuffed-Out Candle

    Starts off as vague, soapy florals and candle wax. It's giving me craft store vibes. A sweet, soft leather, like the note from Diana, comes out and it's sweet leather with sweet, waxy beeswax, it's okay at this stage, but not extraordinary. Then it softens down to waxy soap.

    Lavender Lightning

    Lavender Lightning is not what I was at all expecting. I don't get much petrichor or ozone in it, but it's a delightfully complex scent that will probably be glorious during sweaty weather. The first notes I get are lavender and lime. It's giving me a lavender fougere vibe. Then I get spearmint and thyme? There's some nice green herbal shooting through it. It makes me think of a little of Lush's Dirty shower gel. Very refreshing and herbal. It's the feeling of a thunderstorm, but not the smell of one.

    Innocent Souls Turned Carrion Birds

    this gives me Shadow vibes. Labdanum is the strongest note. It's spicy and sweet, it doesn't go into root beer territory like it sometimes can. It has the sweet spiciness that some root beers have, without going full root beer. The sandalwood is providing a woody base that makes the labdanum behave. The grey musk is hanging around being a gauzey mist of musk that sometimes appears in front and sometimes behind.

    Coral Bean & Louisiana Phlox

    This smells like a fresh bag of clay, earthy and mineralic, a little dusty, I think this is the scent of the bean. The phlox is a light sweet floral that sits in the backseat.

    Sweet Clove and Vetiver

    Medicinal clove (like the one in Pericardium) and light vetiver. I tend to amp both clove and vetiver. The clove is stronger on me than the vetiver. The vetiver isn't very dark, oily, or charred.

    Heavy as Honeyed Pulses Beat

    grassy vetiver with some char, the honey becomes more apparent as the scent warms up and melds with the skin. It's a dry, amber honey, kind of like it dried on some wood.
