    Vrishka Rajaya V2

    i have to agree there is *NO* dandelion here but it is a really pretty honeyed... fig perhaps? with some unidentified florals and the slightest touch of something green... it is reminding me a bit of hony mone but not as floral. this is quite lovely!

    Halloween: Las Vegas

    first off THANKS SO MUCH WITCH FOR THIS DECANT!!! U ARE AWESOME!!! secondly thanks beth for this amazing perfume your fairytale wedding day smells like heaven!!! with a little bit of hell mixed in ofcourse wow this is f$%#ing gorgeous! on me it smells like sweet smoky red wine and i think i can just catch a whiff of dorian in the background and the snake oil although i can't pick it out undoubtedly is whats lending the touch of deepness/darkness to the blend this stuff is sexy as hell and super wearable. i am gonna have to save up to make an order so i can get a bottle of this! i just hope it sticks around for a while so i have the time. i hope to be able to buy 2 actually one for instant gratification and one for aging cause something tells me a few more wedding anniversaries from now this one is gonna be even more magical if thats even possible oh and in the dry down it transitions to amazing smoky vanilla frosting!!!

What other items would you scream with delight upon receiving? watch movements, broken watches, watch parts (the bigger the better and including pocket watches too) a bunch of charms of mixed styles/metals (not the bead kinds that go on those bracelets though) and vintage/new chains in mixed metals/styles (not the dainty/real thin kind though) and just neat looking, old, even dirty bits of metal. oh and flat backed crystal rhinestones of various sizes and colors ... i would love all of these things because i am beginning to make steampunk/industrial jewelry. you should also know: i love whimisical, dark, magical, mystical, old/vintage, victorian, shabby chic, french country, visually stunning, and creepy things. i did say earlier that i don't like knick knacks but to be more specific i do like nice interesting things to look at in my home just not usually little figurines which is what i think of when someone says knick knacks i love halloween!! the creepy, cute, and the kitschy! even better if you are gonna get creepy stuff it would be best if most of it wasn't just halloween specific so it can be adored all year round!

    The First of the Three Spirits

    i had to come here and scan the reviews because as soon as the buttery note faded (and thank goodness for that) this smelled just like the gc blend XIUHTECUHTLI without the smoke and sqwook noticed the resemblance too so i guess i'm not nuts lol
  6. AngelaTarantula

    Raven Moon

    oh how this makes me want to i am completely in love with smoked vanilla and it isn't in many blends so when i saw this i knew i had to have it. so imagine my disappointment when it turned to pure powdery resins on my skin... powder is icky! i am gonna hang on to this to age. i pray that the powder disappears and the smoky vanilla takes over
  7. AngelaTarantula

    Plague of Frogs

    i don't get anything dirty or slimy from this. infact quite the opposite! should be called bathed frogs cause it smells like a pleasant clean aquatic but as i am not a fan of clean aquatics it's off to the swaps pile but i would rate it 2.5/5
  8. AngelaTarantula

    Trevor Bruttenholm

    TREVOR BRUTTENHOLM A classic men’s cologne mixed with the scent of old, yellowed books, a splash of bay rum, and summoning incense. well this is my 1st time doing the first review of a scent and i don't have the best nose but here goes... this scent doesn't have much throw and i had to give it quite a slather to get a good whiff but at first i get mostly a pleasant herbal cologne type scent with a shot o rum but as it dries it turns soft and smooth and is mostly rum and incense. it is a quite a pleasant close to the skin scent but not typically my thing although i did prefer the just applied herbal note more and might have kept the bottle had it stuck around longer. i rate it a 2.5/5 i am glad i got to try it but it will be off to the swaps pile
  9. AngelaTarantula

    TP'd Trees

    OMG perhaps it is because i just acquired this aged partial of tp'd trees but i swear the dry down on me smells just like buck moon and blace laces (two of my favorites!) lovechild! it's so amazing!!! i am gonna apply some now so i can do a proper review. wet i smells a bit of some tropical fruit (a citrus tinge?) unfamiliar to me anyway that fades fast and theres a bunch of vanilla and cotton/linen slightly powdery but nothing like baby powder thank goodness. ok so now i am getting another fruity sweet scent again along with some woodiness wow what a morpher. anyway maybe it won't be a proper review but i wore it yesterday and in the dry stage it smells of buck moon and black lace and i am in love!
  10. AngelaTarantula

    Fire Phoenix

    this is straight up lemon on me i am so confuzzled it's not even a listed component oh well no bottle for me... can't get em all i suppose

    Chaos Theory III: Strange Attractors

    So i have had this ct for a long time now and i really must do a review of it as i adore it so much! Chaos theory iii - cclxxii: this scent is absolutely beautiful! It is a perfect blend of vanilla mint tea and the florals from snow white. It is my most cherished of bottles and i use it every night i either dab a little on my hand or the top of my bears head before bed i find it very comforting for sleep. Cappachino's head seems to have a faded yet seemingly permanent scent of it and i breath it in deep with a smile each night as it soothes me to sleep O chaos theory how i thee
  12. AngelaTarantula


    oh no something has gone terribly wrong! i got this in the mail today so i will have to let it sit a couple of days and hope that the outcome is what it was when i tried my imp of it... i ordered this bottle because i really really like the imp i had it was just amazing smoky sweet tropical fruity floral but when i tried my new bottle today i got all that loveliness as before with an additional background ingredient of whizz! thats right folks my hand smells like pretty pee which really isn't pretty at all! i hope this is just a fluke maybe xiuhtecuhtli couldn't hold her bladder on the long journey from cali in any case i hope it is not my chemistry gone wonky and if it is it better get unwonky real soon!
  13. AngelaTarantula


    yay! i got my tabella today i was intially planning on letting it rest today and testing it tomorrow but alas my impatience got the better of me what a lovely scent! it doesn't remind me of any other scent so i have nothing to compare it to and the components blend so well on me that the end result has left me unable to pick out any single note but it does smell like a soft herbal blend with a bit of smokiness something floral and a tiny hint of citrus?. i really like this though and am so glad i was able to buy a bottle A KEEPER FOR SURE! edited to add: something in the drydown is reminding me of coconut. yum!
  14. AngelaTarantula

    Rangoon Riptide

    when first applied it is impossibly fruity sweet mostly pineapple with a bit of tartness but calms down alot during drydown when i close my eyes i think of one of those tropical drinks they serve at the local sushi restaurant with a pineapple and cherry skewered onto mini green umbrella. yummo! me likey! my rating is 4/5

    Leanan Sidhe

    not really digging this one didn't morph very much and basically ended up smelling like a soapy floral on me and i smell some rose in there and i don't like rose! my rating is 1/5
