    Loving the frankincense!

    Valentine of Rome is really, really good!

    What is Chaos Theory?

    Yes, please!

    What Duskinhereyes said for the most part. On me, though, it started out strong leather(which is never good). It did quiet down after about an hour and turned into a lovely, creamy-musky-smoky honeyed vanilla incense with just a touch of clove. The other notes are so well-blended it's hard to distinguish them individually. Very reminiscent of Snake Oil and Snake Charmer(minus coconut), and like those two, I think is going to be one that ages beautifully. I've only had it a few days and already it's only getting better and better. Very glad I took a risk on this one and thrilled I've found not only a leather blend I can wear but one that I absolutely LOVE. DH's reaction? "Mmmmmm"

    As others have said, very Black Lace-ish. Just as beautiful, too. Sometimes dry and a tad sharp, other times it's a touch sweet, but always, rich and oh so elegant. Definitely has a very dark edge to it, almost sinister at times. "Swirl of plum" is perfectly descriptive, as that's exactly what it does...rising quietly, teasing before it sinks back among the other notes. Very evocative of luxurious, black and blood red velvets. An intoxicating perfume. To me, more vampire than goth. Simply exquisite.

    Raven Moon

    Yes, exactly. I'm also reminded of Schwarzer Mond & Lucifer. This is dark, rich and oh so beautiful. Touches of deep black licorice & subtle clove, which remind me a bit of Spawn of the She-Demon(another love). Every single note in this makes itself known, the red chili remaining quietly in the background. There's the soft sweetness of smoky vanilla(that brings Antique Lace to mind). Patchouli has been amping itself like mad lately but in this, just the perfect touch. Breath-taking, seductive. Absolutely stunning. Now if I can just pry it away from my husband...

    As Aerinha mentions above, everything listed in the book seems to be in this. So many lovely things going on at once. Subtle cinnamon and clove, sandalwood...lavender, rosemary. A hint of smoke without being smoky. A perfect touch of sweetness. It's spicy, resiny. Stays close to the skin and lasts for hours. Imagine Sin, Lucifer and French Creole rolling around together over smoldering embers and you'll have a pretty good idea of what this blend smells like. Beautiful!! The artwork for the book, also beautiful

    The Phantom Cow of Yerba Buena Island

    Wet/just applied, very much a combination of both Milk Moons, leaning a bit towards '07. As it warms to the skin it goes in the other direction, Milk Moon '05, one of my all-time favorites =) A hint of minty herbs peeks through(yerba buena, my grandma used to grow it), very soft, with a touch of herbal tea. The milky note is very rich, warm and comforting. Like the sweet, honeyed-cream breath of a puppy before it's been weaned *LOVE*

    Same here :] Definitely floral, stronger at first then lightens considerably after a few hours. Starts out very much like Canels Violet gum to my nose. Similar to what Crow Moon did on me, sharp, sweet floral. I also get fleeting hints of tobacco, somewhat like that in Midnight Kiss. There's also a *very* soft touch of vanilla that peeks through. Lovely blend! (Thanks again, mm! )

    Midnight Kiss

    Huh, thought I'd reviewed this. If it was lovely when I first got it(when it made its debut), it's even moreso now. Aging has made it richer and given it more depth. Most assuredly a red scent. Juicy & musky with a touch of (again) rich resin. The wine note in this is perfection and smells, to my nose, like the pomegranate in Misfortune Teller. The nicotiana is gorgeous(a favorite note of mine), similar to that in Kali. Like walking into a humidor full of the most expensive and exclusive cigars in existence. I tend to amp patchouli but here it stays in the background helping ground the scent. I don't really detect the cocoa absolute, aside from what I've mentioned, notes that peek out just long enough to distinguish themselves, this is a very well blended oil. Hints of Gluhwein every now and again and very definitely reminescent of Misfortune Teller. I'm surprised there isn't more hoarding and coveting of this one, it's right up there with, as mentioned Mme. Moriarty, as well as Snake Charmer, Sin... I also, btw, wore this one for my wedding(which also happened to be on Halloween). Very fitting, methinks. This is a real beauty. If you haven't tried it, look for a decant at least. If you have it and haven't worn it in a while, go get it and put it on. Now. You'll be glad you did.

    This starts out as something very similar to Midnight Kiss on me. Within 2-3 minutes the cinnamon emerges, sweet but dry, with a touch of thick honey...As a few more minutes tick by I detect the orange rind, a hint of clove, and a tease of vanilla. The wine in this is smells simply delicious, deep and rich. About 30 minutes after application this beauty has morphed into a variation of Hexennacht '05...every note in Hex, dancing around a cauldron of a softly, and perfectly, spiced wine. Long-wearing with beautiful throw. How could I not love it?

    Strawberry Moon 2009

    Opening the bottle~ Sitting in a field of dew-kissed strawberries and burying your nose in a handful of 'em bursting with juice. This smells like what the most perfect strawberry tastes like as you bite into it. As it warms to the skin a light dusting of sugar appears, then a touch of creamy vanilla teases its way through. There's a hint of slightly sharp strawberry leaf and barely a tease of dandelion. Absolutely beautiful!

    Temple of Dreams

    Huh, interesting this. While I do get the lavender and rosemary in the vial, along with a touch of spice...On skin it quickly morphs into something sweet, almost pink sugar-ish, with a tiny hint of vanilla The (non-soapy)lavender and rosemary fade until they're way in the background. Quite a lovely scent! I haven't tested its efficacy but will be sure to when I go to bed later. I've no doubt it'll bring me to a deep, peaceful sleep full of sweet dreams.

    Aunt Caroline's Joy Mojo

    Like others have said, this is very much a pink scent. Spun sugar, lotus, and strawberries with a hint of sugary lemon drops =) Dries down to the same, minus the lemon drops, with an added touch of sweetish musk. Every now and again I get a fleeting hint of barely there clove, too. I LOVE this!! As far as its intended purpose, I can say that when I'm wearing it, things that might normally annoy me or get on my nerves are shrugged off without a care Perfume-wise, if you like Pink Moon '05, Strawberry Moon, Velvet Unicorn, to name a few, you'll love this.

    Velvet Dogs Playing Poker

    I get little to no caramel in this, yay! That's what killed the original Dogs Playing Poker for me. Very well blended, hard to pick out individual notes. To me, this is like a smoother, creamier, non-patchouli Schwarzer Mond. With a *very* subtle, barely-there-touch of spearmint-kissed wood. More of an impression of it, really. Quite nice

    Chaos Theory V: Recursive Self-Similarity v3

    XCVIII(98) Fresh lemon in the bottle nestled within frankincense and myrrh. On skin the lemon softens to just a touch as a beautiful honey emerges. Another few minutes and herbs make an appearance. Similar to the herbs in Anubis The frank & myrrh add depth and richness. This is really lovely =) Penitence with honeyed-lemon & sweetish herbs.
