    Verdandi

    In the bottle: Fruity, apple, green and a bit woody. Reminds me of Yew Trees. Wet: Like a fresh green apple, accompanied by sweet green herbs. Dry: The apple has died down and the herbs have come to the fore. The apple is fresh but not foody like apple pie, instead it's much more vegetal and uncooked. After a few minutes: Fresh peppery herbs and mildly sweet apple. It definitely has similarities to Yew Trees. After first hour: Gentle powdery, sweet, and green. But not sugary, or confectionary sweet, more of a fresh herbal sweet. After two and a half hours: Sweet powdery green. Ah, it's the amber, I forgot about the amber. I love me some incensey resins. After 5 hours: Faint resin and green. Final verdict: This is so good, I need to stop falling in love with everything I test.

    House of Night

    In the bottle: Floral and peppery green. Similar to Saint-Germain. Wet: Fresh, green, a bit of mint, a bit of thyme, a hint of eucalyptus. Dry: Fresh, tangy, resinous green with a hint of floral that is just right instead of excessive. After a few minutes: A little bit pine-y, still tangy, and I'm getting more of the still fairly well-behaved floral. Now it's starting to go fruity, which is interesting, kind of a hint of berry. After first hour: Fresh green with a hint of floral and possibly aloe and mint. Smells a bit like Phantasm or Cordelia. After two and a half hours: Soft powdery green with a hint of floral. After 5 hours: A faint wisp of green. Final verdict: I want a bottle of this, but I don't need any more bottles, really I don't.

    Devil's Claw

    In the bottle: Sharp, incensey and smoky. Wet: Tangy, dark yet fresh at the same time. A lot like a smoky single malt scotch. Dry: Totally smokey scotch, kind of a combination of Islay and Speyside single malts. After a few minutes: I still feel like I'm smelling Ardbeg, my favourite single malt whiskey. After first hour: I'm getting more of a Gaueko smoky vibe from it now, just a touch greener and fresher beneath the smoke, minus the lavender, of course. A touch of incense too. If I met someone wearing this I would throw myself at them. After two and a half hours: A note of sweetness has crept out through the smoke. After 5 hours: The smoke is mostly gone, leaving a sweet greenness and a hint of cured tobbacco. Final verdict: I don't need any more Bpal, but if I found a bottle I would probably snap it up.

    Egle

    In the bottle: Powdery fresh green and fruity. Wet: Fresh green, resinous, some sort of greenish floral with a hint of wood. The fairy tale is Egle, Queen of Serpents (which I am not familiar with), but I'm not sure if I detect any Snake Oil in the blend. Dry: Fruity, berrylike, but still quite green. After a few minutes: It reminds me a bit of Yew Trees. Hmm, maybe this is a hint of what I might be smelling: "As she commanded so it came to be: and now the oak, ash and birch are the strongest of our trees, while the willow to this day will shake at the slightest whisper of a wind for she quaked before her uncles and gave away her true father." This is really, really good. A bit mossy now, with sweet green wood. Half an hour in it's starting to fade. Just checked the forum reviews, and there are notes listed: Ocean water, hyacinth petals, star jasmine, and fir. The fir is quite outspoken, which is the way I like it, while the flowers are more submissive. The ocean water must be the freshness. After first hour: A faint green, powdery fresh sweetness with a definite smooth, soothing coniferousness. After two and a half hours: A hint of sweet fir. After 5 hours: A hint of sweetness. Final verdict: I like it, but I can't decide if I want to keep it.

    Brusque Violet

    Testing Brusque Violet today. I think I might have to add violet to my list of tolerable flowers. The mint really makes it into more of a fresh herbal scent, than a cloying, in your face floral. And it's still in stock. It has a nice resinous/incensey kind of note too, which I love. runs off to add it to her wishlist (Nevermind, it isn't as necessary as I first thought)

    Himerus

    In the bottle: Sweet ambery resinous incensy goodness Wet: Reminds me a bit of Arcana, or Penitence. Dry: Sweet powdery amber with a hint of lilac. After a few minutes: Lilac is coming to the front a bit. Still quite ambery. After first hour: Lilac and resin, powderiness, possibly musk. After two and a half hours: Soft musky incense After 5 hours: Faint sweetness Final verdict: Pleasant, but not something I need to hold onto.

    Aunt Caroline's Money Draw

    A post I made in the TAL chatter section would probably be good to include here. I'm not reviewing the oil from an aesthetic perspective, this is just the results of an experiment I did on October 25: Just anointed the inside of my purse, spouse's purse and put a tiny drop of Aunt Caroline's Money Draw on my computer. Need to make some sales for Christmas shopping. Need my writing to start paying. ✍️✏️🖋️✒️🖥️🖨️📗💲💵💰🤑 Edit: Anointed a printout of my Paypal account balance and savings account balance for good measure. Edit 2: The government has sent $$$ to people with disabilities. I just about fainted when I checked my bank account. Apparently this has been in the works for a while, even before my said anointing, but it's still a cool synchronicity. Edit 3: The government has sent more $$$, and I have a bite on my sales post for the first time in ages. Edit 4: Found some Canadian Tire money in the elevator today. Edit 5: This TAL just keeps giving. Edit 6: No more windfalls so far, but I found a key chain I had been looking for with a reproduction of a Canadian $1000 bill on it, and I anointed that as well to be my money-drawing talisman. Edit 7: More nibbles on my sales post. Edit 8: Got our best tax refund ever!

    Bestiaire du Moyen Âge

    In the bottle: Tangy, fruity cough medicine Wet: Fruity, pineapple, apple and a hint of mint. Dry: The green is taking over a bit and it's less medicinal now. After a few minutes: Ooh, fresh, fruity and green at once, sooo nice. I'm getting a hint of grass. After first hour: This reminds me of something... a bit like Green Phoenix, or Phantasm. The fruitiness has died down quite a bit and now it is more of a fresh, piney herbal. It's weird, it also registers some incense in the mix, even though I know there isn't any. Maybe it's the musk. I never used to like musk, but the Lab's version of it doesn't bother me at all if I like the other notes in the blend. I think this scent would layer well with something that had lavender in it, like maybe Envy, although it is quite nice on its own. After two and a half hours: Soft, fresh, and distant. I've enjoyed this more than I hoped I would. After 5 hours: Indistinct sweetness. Final verdict: I'll definitely use up this bottle. Edit: I still smell it faintly on my wrist 24 hours later. I won't say it has a huge throw, but it is there.

    A Vigilant Eye at Heaven’s Center

    In the bottle: Fresh, tangy, fruity green, with a hint of minty/eucalyptus. Wet: Kind of a green/mango/papaya Dry: Kind of a mugwort/old dried eucalyptus. After a few minutes: Powdery soft and fresh herbs. Reminds me a bit of Chlorophyll and Californite Phoenix. After first hour: Soft, powdery fresh with a hint of incense. Might be the labdanum, it has a faint similarity to Gaueko. After two and a half hours: ellocentipede mentioned it was like Demon in the Dark from LUSH, and I think they are right. I used to love Demon in the Dark and always wanted a perfume like it. It's also a bit grassy now. After 5 hours: Soft amber-y herbal. Final verdict: I think this is a keeper. Edit: 24 hours later I can still smell a bit on my wrist.

    Pyramus

    Testing my 9 year old vintage bottle. In bottle: Sweet fruity herbal incense. Manages to be both dark and fresh at the same time. Wet: Lavender, fruity incense, ambery powderiness. Very deep and complex without being overwhelming. Dry: I'm getting a bit of something that smells like tonka. Normally I dislike tonka, but this doesn't seem to bother me. The green herby aroma is amplifying. After a few minutes: Soft amberiness, incense and herbs. The fruit is coming back to say hello. After first hour: A happy incense party for my nose. The resins are just so sweet and delicious. After two and a half hours: Sweet powdery incense, with just a hint of fruit. After 5 hours: Soft resin and fruit. Final verdict: This is good, I will have a hard time parting with it.

    Green Phoenix

    In bottle: Sweet fresh and green, with a hint of fruitiness Wet: Green, clean and soapy. Dry: Soft, powdery dry herbs. After a few minutes: Fruity banana and papaya overlain by green. It reminds me a bit of Dragon Moon 2008 with it's soft, powdery herbs. It also reminds me a bit of Green Tree Viper. After first hour: Soft, clean fruit and herbs. After two and a half hours: Faint fruit and herbs. After 5 hours: Pretty much gone. Final verdict: I will definitely use up what I have but I don't know if I need more or not.

    Hypnotize Me

    In the bottle: Lavender and greenness, smells just a teensy bit like Saint-Germain and I am positively tickled pink. Wet: Lavender and something fresh and minty. It's a bit like Envy, too. Dry: There's also some sort of incensy note or sandalwood like aroma, but it's very clean. After a few minutes: Very fresh herbal lavender, and the herbs are sweet instead of savory as I found with Chlorophyll. The other herb note, which must be the mugwort kind of cuddles up to the lavender and makes a soft powdery green sweetness that is almost better than lavender alone. It is kind of hypnotic, I can't seem to stop sniffing my wrist. After first hour: Very faint lavender now, I think the mugwort is coming forward, but it smells nice so I have no objections. After two and a half hours: Soft and very faint herbal. Still can't stop sniffing my wrist. After 5 hours: Pretty much gone. Final verdict: I think this one is a keeper.

    Chlorophyll

    In bottle: Fresh, herbaceous and slightly fruity. Wet: Mint, grass!, a hint of eucalyptus. There is a note of something I can't identify. The fruity scent seems like lychee, which I don't like. As it dries I'm catching a hint of lemon. Part of the problem seems to be that the perfume is reacting with my taste buds and I can sort of taste the scent, which is not pleasant. Dry: Some sort of a dusty herb note, like dried eucalyptus. After a few minutes: Fruity, ferny greenness, with a sort of ambery softness and powdery dried herbs. After first hour: The fruity/dusty note I didn't like has faded into a sort of honeydew melon aroma. I almost like it now, but it's a long time to wait for your perfume to agree with you. After two and a half hours: Soft powdery/flowery/tangy greenness, and I I think I can identify the note I don't like: it smells like tomato leaves. The herbs are savory rather than sweet. After 5 hours: Everything has sweetened up quite a bit, and it reminds me of what I like about Envy. Final verdict: I think I need to do another testing session before I decide if I want to keep it or not.
  14. Favourite colour: Green Black is a far, far distant second, and only because it goes so well with green. Favourite metal: Silver or silvertone. Will take other metal colours if the jewellery piece has green in it. Favourite animal: Shark Favourite tea: Anything green, preferably with caffeine. Favourite clothing type: Medieval, Renaissance and Goth, Celtic Favourite candy: chocolate or chocolate-mint, or chocolate with hazelnut. (I really hate anise/fennel) Favourite music: Early (Medieval, Renaissance), Delerium, Era, Loreena McKennitt, Mediaeval Baebes, Azam Ali, Lesiem, Dead Can Dance, Lisa Girard, Deep Forest, Tulku, Celtic, Enya Favourite books: Medieval/Renaissance historical fiction such as books by Phillipa Gregory Favourite historical period: Tudor Favourite historical personages: Anne Boleyn, Lady Jane Grey, Joan of Arc Favourite television shows: Science fiction and fantasy shows, also animal shows (especially shark ones), plus historical dramas and documentaries, supernatural shows like Ghost Hunters and Most Haunted Favourite design aesthetic: Celtic/Tribal

    Mag Mell

    In the bottle: Pale yellow oil. Sweet eucalyptus and minty green herbal with a hint of fruit. Wet: Tangy eucalyptus, mint and citrus. Dry: A hint of banana, citrus and something tangy, I think the minty note might actually be the white ginger. After a few minutes: Fruity ginger and amber, still a hint of banana. After first hour: Fruity ginger and amber, with hint of berries. After two and a half hours: Soft amber, citrus and fruit. After 5 hours: Amber and citrus. Final verdict: Not bad, but not one I want to keep.
