    Prospero

    In the bottle and when first applied, this is the most gorgeous deep dark red-purple wine that I've ever smelled. Up close to the skin after a few miuntes of wear, the amber and musk add a powdery spiciness. I'm hoping for a bit more champaca as this wears throughout the day, but it's lovely already! I'm so glad that I was able to order a bottle.

    The Forbidding Foyer

    Thick shadows hang heavy across fungus-smeared, dilapidated wainscoting, cobwebs hang like fine lace across sagging mouldings, rats scuttle past gaping doorways. The faint scent of brimstone, ghostly breath laced with cognac, neglected mahogany panels, and rot. In the bottle and when immediately applied to the skin, this is not much else than musty stone. As it dries, there's something almost floral about it and I can't quite figure out why. Maybe it's the cognac? Now that I've looked at the description, it does smell a bit more like cognac to me... it has that slight alcoholic tang to it. Very interesting. It's amazing how a drop of oil can smell like a solid, albeit rotting and crumbling, stone.

    The Chilling Cellar

    Wine just turning to vinegar, crumbling mortar, red clay, and the coppery tang of old blood. This is a dusty scent, just like you'd imagine an abandoned cellar would smell. There is definitely a coppery tang to it, as the description says. It smells vaguely of dirt / earth in the throw, which is likely the red clay note. And there is just the slightest hint of fruit, coming from the wine.

    Queen Alice

    There is a sugary softness floating around me with this blend. Other than that, and there isn't much to it, there is not a whole lot of throw. Up close to the skin where I applied the oil, I get a juicy apple-coated floral. Must be the cider and the carnation. It's sweet and creamy and mellow. I like this blend a lot.

    Riding the Goat

    Mmmm, gorgeous Church incense. Reminds me of Ash Wednesday at my old parish.

    Pinched With Four Aces

    Mmmm, cinnamon and tobacco. There's something really creamy in this blend, giving it a nice round sweetness. I don't get much of the coffee bean husk or woods, but the cinnamon bark is just fantastic. I wish I had bought a bottle of this one.

    New Year's Eve in Dogville

    This reminded me of the cheap drugstore perfume I would get in a Christmas gift boxset as a pre-teen.

    One to Tie, Two to Win

    In the imp and when first applied, this is incredible grass and dandelions. If I closed my eyes, I'd swear I was standing outside in a lush green field. Now that's it's dried for two hours, it's some odd fabric softener type scent. Like when you buy things scented with "Summer Breeze" or something. Very fake and odd.

    Kelly Pool

    Whoooo..... SOAP. Do not pass Go, do not collect an oil that smells like worsted wool, teakwood and bois du rose. SOAP.

    His Station and Four Aces

    This is a whole lotta lilac when I first applied it, but over the course of the day, it's faded into a soft, light musk. Again, no leather apparent on me.

    A Bold Bluff

    Oooh, this is all sweet cherry pipe tobacco and hops on me. The hops are most apparent when I'm smelling my wrist very close to my nose, and then they kind of linger in the back of my throat. The tonka just kind of ties it all together in a sweet, creamy bow.

    A Bachelor's Dog

    At first I hated this because I kept getting whiffs of all tobacco and saying, "Who the hell is smoking?!?! Gross!" but now that it's dried down for a couple of hours, I'm really kind of digging it. The musk tempers the tobacco and it just smells warm and comfortable.

    Lady Luck Blues

    In the bottle and on my skin, this is all rose. There's a touch of the benzoin giving it a delicate resinous spiciness now that it's had two hours or so to dry. But that's really all I'm getting out of this blend.

    Milk Moon 2007

    This has a sweet fruitiness to me that, initially applied, comes off as pineapple. I'm not sure what combination is triggering pineapple in my brain, but there it is. I love this blend. I'm wearing it for the second day in a row, which I never do, just because it's so sweet and luscious. I, for the record, could not get rid of the old Milk Moon fast enough, so this pleases me immensely.

    Poisson d'Avril

    This is a mishmash of florals on me. I can't identify any on their own, though I know there's rose in here because my skin tends to amp that one. I don't get any of the honey. This is pretty powdery. Not really my cuppa.
