    Dark Chocolate and Cherry

    Dark chocolate and cherry. I smell like someone cracked open a cherry cordial and smeared it all over my body. I'm delicious!

    Miss Lupescu

    In the bottle: Rating: 5 Notes: almond blossom, ho wood Comment: Very sweet, light, musky wood. Wet on skin: Rating: 5 Notes: ho wood, animalic musk, patchouli Comment: Very musky and woody, yet lightened by almond blossom, and perhaps cypress? I think I smell some star anise or cardamom as part of the "strange spices." Dry on skin: Rating: 4 Notes: ho wood, patchouli Scent Intensity: 4 Comment: Overall very wood-smelling, with other notes coming and going. Misc: Duration: Keyword(s): wood Color: Mahogany Smells like: dank redwood forest

    Banana Peel in a Graveyard

    In the bottle: Rating: 5 Notes: muddy earth, unidentifiable fruit Comment: Not easy for me to smell the banana in the bottle. Wet on skin: Rating: 5 Notes: musky banana, earth Comment: The banana is definitely not forefront in the notes. As if someone had squashed an overripe banana in fresh earth, which is more muddy and wet than dust. Dry on skin: Rating: 4 Notes: dirt, dust, banana Scent Intensity: 5 Comment: Dirty, dusky, banana. Very strong cologne-ish scent. Graveyard notes very pronounced, banana not noticeable when smelling skin directly; however, as the perfume wafts, it smells like Runts mixed with drier dirt and dust. Misc: Duration: +4 Hrs. Keyword(s): masculine Color: N/A Smells like: Runts rolled in muddy cologne.

    Jack

    In the bottle: Rating: 5 Notes: pumpkin, nutmeg, clove Comment: Smells delicious and like Pumpkin III, except less creamy and chocolatey. Wet on skin: Rating: 4 Notes: pumpkin, cream? Comment: Slight off-note smell to it. Dry on skin: Rating: 3 Notes: nutmeg, clove, maybe peach? Scent Intensity: 3 Comment: This has a definitely plastic smell to it, under that there are some of the spice smells. I'm a little let down because March Hare smells excellent on me and so does Pumpkin III. Misc: Duration: N/A Keyword(s): gourmand Color: N/A Smells like: Pumpkin III

    Mead Moon

    In the bottle: Rating: 5 Notes: nutmeg, sweet-briar, ginger root, lemon Comment: The honey is not obvious to me in the bottle and the first scent that comes to mind is the nutmeg. Wet on skin: Rating:5 Notes: sweet-briar, rosemary, lemon Comment: Smells very musky. If the musky note is the honey mead it's very different from how honey notes usually smell to me, but I like this honey/musk combo! Dry on skin: Rating: 4 Notes: ?? Scent Intensity: 2 Comment: I can't identify any notes. It's just a muddled sweety musky scent. I'm surprised the golden mead, fermented fruit, clove, and cinnamon are not very easy for me to detect as these tend to be very loud on my skin. The scent changed on me almost immediately and became barely noticeable / very subtle. Strange! I think this muddled scent is actually a powdery type muddled-ness. It's not bad, but not what I was hoping for. Misc: Duration: N/A Keyword(s): sweet, musky, floral? Color: N/A Smells like: N/A

Wet on skin: Rating: Notes: white chocolate, frankincense, black tea, tonka, sandalwood Comment: Very delicious smelling, and totally different notes come out on my skin. Dry on skin: Rating: 4 Notes: white chocolate, apple blossom, dark chocolate, nutmeg Scent Intensity: 3 Comment: Very delicious. My only wish is that it had a longer duration.

Wet on skin: Rating: 4 Notes: Florentine iris, red musk, magnolia, Damascus rose, vanilla bean Comment: The floral notes are more apparent on me than in the bottle. Dry on skin: Rating: 4 Notes: red musk, mimosa, Damascus rose, clove, vanilla bean Scent Intensity: 3 Comment: A nice scent, but not in the top 10. Misc: Duration: 4+ Hrs.

    Stormclouds Over The Midway

    In the bottle: Rating: 5 Notes: thunder charged ozone, opium tar, wormwood Comment: Very ozone. Wet on skin: Rating: 5 Notes: thunder charged ozone, wormwood, opium tar Comment: Very ozoney smell. Dry on skin: Rating: 4 Notes: thunder charged ozone, plum-colored incense smoke, wormwood Scent Intensity: 3 Comment: Unfortunately, this smells kind of like old lady's perfume when smelling it as a collective perfume. I can pick out the ozone note separately and each note does smell good like this, but not so much as a single scent. Misc: Duration: 3+ Hrs. Keyword(s): N/A Color: N/A Smells like: Old lady's perfume

    In the bottle: Rating: 2 Notes: red ginger, cassia, cinnamon Comment: I don't like ginger. Wet on skin: Rating: 2 Notes: red ginger, cassia Comment: I don't like ginger. Dry on skin: Rating: 3 Notes: cassia, cinnamon, red ginger Scent Intensity: 3 Comment: I can still smell the ginger. I'm sure other people don't think I smell bad, but definitely not my shtick. It's not the perfume's fault that ginger makes me nauseous. Misc: Duration: ~2 Hrs. Keyword(s): gourmand Color: Smells like: Big Red gum & ginger breath

    In the bottle: Rating: 4 Notes: oakmoss, sea moss Comment: Not a very noticeable scent in the bottle. Wet on skin: Rating: 4 Notes: oakmoss, sea moss Comment: A little bit stronger smelling on the skin, but still very subtle. Dry on skin: Rating: 3 Notes: oakmoss Scent Intensity: 3 Comment: I smell more snake oil than mossy notes in this one. Also faded comparably faster than others from the Snake Pit. Misc: Duration: 2+ Hrs. Keyword(s): N/A Color: olive Smells like: N/A

    Asp Viper (2006)

    In the bottle: Rating: 4 Notes: almond, myrrh Comment: I don't like the way almond smells in the bottle but it's usually OK on my skin. Wet on skin: Rating: 5 Notes: almond, myrrh Comment: Don't smell the red mandarin, but this ends up way more gourmand than I thought it would. Dry on skin: Rating: 4 Notes: myrrh, almond Scent Intensity: 3 Comment: Not as long lasting as the other snake oils. I also didn't notice any mandarin, but I definitely like how food scented it smells. Misc: Duration: 3+ Hrs. Keyword(s): gourmand Color: Copper Smells like: N/A

    In the bottle: Rating: 3 Notes: orange pulp, gardenia Comment: Smells kind of like a cleaning chemical. Wet on skin: Rating: 4 Notes: orange pulp, gardenia, white honey, bergamot, jasmine sambac Comment: Still a bit of a cleaning chemical smell. Dry on skin: Rating: 5 Notes: black amber, oakmoss, green sandalwood, ti leaf, vanilla, white honey Scent Intensity: 4 Comment: Starts out not that great and turns into this lovely musky earthy perfume. Misc: Duration: +4 Hrs. Keyword(s): musky, earthy, mossy Color: dark earth green Smells like: Flowers decomposing in a dirt heap.

    Priala, the Human Phoenix (2006)

    In the bottle: Rating: 5 Notes: cinnamon, myrrh Comment: Cinnamon in the bottle smells kind of rank, but morphs nice on me so hopefully this will do the same. Wet on skin: Rating: 5 Notes: cinnamon, smoke Comment: Liking the cinnamon and smoke together. Dry on skin: Rating: 5 Notes: myrrh, smoke, cinnamon Scent Intensity: 4 Comment: The myrrh has finally presented itself as a really nice dark musk with smoke in the background. The cinnamon is not so prominent as it tends to fade fast on me. Misc: Duration: +4 Hrs. Keyword(s): musky, spicy, smokey Color: Burnt sienna Smells like: Big Red chewed by a smoker.

    Gennivre, L’Artiste du Diable

    Gennivre, L'Artiste du Diable Hyson tea leaf, pale mint, sugar cane, orange blossom, lemongrass, and honey. In the bottle: Rating: 4 Notes: Hyson tea leaf, pale mint Comment: Mostly only smell those two notes. Seems like a very subtle perfume. Wet on skin: Rating: 5 Notes: pale mint, Hyson tea leaf, orange blossom Comment: I like the minty freshness. Dry on skin: Rating: 4 Notes: sugar cane, honey Scent Intensity: 1 Comment: This faded very fast and I'm not sure I like the residual smell left by it. It's not clearly a honey note; more like the smell of honey I smeared on my skin a week ago and never washed off with soap and water. Again, not as gourmand as I was hoping. Misc: Duration: <2 Hrs. Keyword(s): tea, musky Color: N/A Smells like: N/A

    Mme. Moriarty, Misfortune Teller (2006)

    Mme. Moriarty, Misfortune Teller Red musk, vanilla bean, pomegranate, patchouli leaf and wild plum. In the bottle: Rating: 4 Notes: red musk, patchouli leaf, wild plum Comment: I'm afraid the patchouli is going to be overpowering. Wet on skin: Rating: 4 Notes: red musk, patchouli leaf, vanilla bean Comment: Definitely a more masculine scent on me due to patchouli, but it's not as bad as I thought. It's also not as fruit as I hoped. Dry on skin: Rating: Notes: patchouli leaf, red musk Scent Intensity: 4 Comment: As I suspected patchouli became the main note in this for me. Not my style but not too dirty-hippy smelling. Occasionally I'll catch a brief waft of vanilla or red musk. Misc: Duration: +5 Hrs Keyword(s): musky Color: Rusty nails Smells like: N/A
