    Hairy Toad Lily

    In the bottle: At first, it's as sweet as candy, yet a bit lemony in the background. Wet: Still sweet and cute, but definitively more floral and herbal. Dry: It turned so subtle that I can't review it. I'm left with a powdered deodorant smell. Verdict: Overall, this is a very light, delicate perfume... So light, in fact, that it disappears! Oops.

    Kumiho

    In the bottle: I can smell the white tea, slightly lemony/herbal. Wet: It reminds me of Unicorn, very floral, white and sharp. Dry: Now, I get more of the ginger, spicy and warm, but not overwhelming. Verdict: It's subtle, delicate, and pretty. I wouldn't have expected that for a "foxy demon", but it's nice.

    BPAL: Kumiho

    Kumiho Category: Diabolus Quantity: sample Description: KUMIHO Nine-tailed fox demon of Korean lore who transforms into the visage of an irresistible beauty in order to seduce men and lead them to their doom. A sharp, biting blend of crisp white tea and ginger. Review: In the bottle: I can smell the white tea, slightly lemony/herbal. Wet: It reminds me of Unicorn, very floral, white and sharp.

    The Pool of Tears

    In the bottle: An aquatic, soft floral blend, with a hint of carnation. Wet: It's very delicate on my skin, and still very floral, with carnation. It reminds me of Alice, but a bit more salty and aquatic. Dry: Oops, it just turned bitter during dry-down. It seems temporary, but what remains afterwards smells like deodorant. Verdict: It started o.k., but turned bad. Not a keeper.

    BPAL: The Pool Of Tears

    The Pool Of Tears Category: Mad Tea Party Quantity: sample Description: THE POOL OF TEARS `I wish I hadn't cried so much!' said Alice, as she swam about, trying to find her way out. `I shall be punished for it now, I suppose, by being drowned in my own tears! That will be a queer thing, to be sure! However, everything is queer to-day.' A sea of salty tears drowning out Alice's light floral perfume. Review: In the bottle: An aquatic, soft floral blend, with a hint of carnation. Wet: It's very delicate on my skin, and still very floral, with carnation. It reminds me of Alice, but a bit more salty and aquatic. Dry: Oops, it just turned bitter during dry-down. It seems temporary, but what remains afterwards smells like deodorant. Verdict: It started o.k., but turned bad. Not a keeper. More reviews: Mad Tea Party: The Pool Of Tears

    Good Judy: Cannoli

    Cannoli Category: Mary Jo's Bakery Quantity: sample Description: CANNOLI A cannoli baked up right...Good Judy style! Creamy ricotta, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, chocolate chips, nuts and candied fruit all stuffed into a crispy baked shell. Sinful! Mama would be proud. Review: In the bottle: Another foody perfume... Sugar, vanilla, cream, chocolate, and something fruity in the background. Wet: It really smells like pastry, with raisins, cinnamon, vanilla, ricotta or thick cream... It’s very sweet! Dry: Now, I get the candied fruits, in a sugar-coated shell... However, the fruits smell like an artificial essence, that’s my only disappointment. Verdict: Hum, this smells delicious! It might be a little bit too rich and decadent though...

    Lust

    In the bottle: Ew, it smells like old incense... More precisely, like a mix of musk and patchouli. Wet: Surprisingly, it actually turns sweet and spicy on my skin! Dry: ...And right back to the musky incense. Verdict: No, this one is definitively not for me. Too bad, I liked the name.

    Jolly Roger

    In the bottle: It does smell like the sea, in a very salty way; yet, it’s woody, with an under-note of sweetness. Wet: It’s still very aquatic. I get some of the wood, washed by the sea, but it’s still definitively aquatic. Dry: As it dries, it starts to smell like an old pirate leather hat, with a splash of rhum. (Yarr...) Verdict: It’s an interesting aquatic after-shave perfume, with an old pirate twist to it.

    Good Judy: Spirit Bottle: Lhunassi

    Spirit Bottle: Lhunassi Category: Curio Shop Quantity: sample Description: SPIRIT BOTTLE: LHUNASSI Also known as a Charm Bottle, these elaborately decorated bottles are known for their healing and good fortune…as well as their powerful voodoo charms. Filled with medicinal herbs and spices, these bottled philtres are further enhanced by the captured spirit that resides in the bottle. Once purchased, you, the Keeper, have complete control over the captured spirit, and the spirit will aid you and you alone. Take heed, because while your spirit will listen only to you, you must also listen to your spirit. Servitude is not forever. Your spirit will let you know when their servitude is complete. When the time comes, make sure to properly bury your Spirit Bottle and come visit Good Judy’s Curio Shoppe to acquire another. We have many more arriving any day now. This Spirit Bottle boasts the spirit of Lhunassi, powerful Moon Goddess and keeper of the stars. She will guide you on your spiritual journey for increased fertility and appease your need for nurturing and love of others. Herbs, spices, moonflower, white champa, knotted twine (to bind the spirit) Review: In the bottle: It’s very feminine, with a mix of floral and herbal scents. Wet: It’s already getting more precise: I get moonflower and herbs, with champa in the background. There’s something “old lady-ish” about it, though. Dry: Now, it’s softer, more herbal, with light champa, and subtle moonflower. Verdict: It’s very feminine and elegant, I won’t deny that, but it’s a bit too old-fashioned for me.

    Eat Me

    In the bottle: Oh my! What a sugary, creamy, decadent cake! Wet: A soft, moist vanilla cake. I still hesitate between comparing it to a white wedding cake or a pound cake; but either way, it smells yummy. Dry: Now I get a little bit of currant to balance the rich sweetness of the cake. However, it still smells like something I would eat... Verdict: Ok, I admit it, I have a weakness for foody scents... I might be biased, but I think this perfume is adorable. In fact, it makes me want to bake a batch of cupcakes.

    BPAL: Eat Me

    Eat Me Category: Mad Tea Party Quantity: sample Description: EAT ME Soon her eye fell on a little glass box that was lying under the table: she opened it, and found in it a very small cake, on which the words 'EAT ME' were beautifully marked in currants. 'Well, I'll eat it,' said Alice, 'and if it makes me grow larger, I can reach the key; and if it makes me grow smaller, I can creep under the door; so either way I'll get into the garden, and I don't care which happens!' She ate a little bit, and said anxiously to herself, 'Which way? Which way?', holding her hand on the top of her head to feel which way it was growing, and she was quite surprised to find that she remained the same size: to be sure, this generally happens when one eats cake, but Alice had got so much into the way of expecting nothing but out-of-the-way things to happen, that it seemed quite dull and stupid for life to go on in the common way. Three white cakes, vanilla, and red and black currants. BPAL’s Eat Me is not for eating. Please use common sense, and remember: perfume oils are for external use only. Review: In the bottle: Oh my!

    Follow Me Boy

    In the bottle: Contrarily to my fellow reviewers, I don’t get any jasmine (in my memories, jasmine smells better than that), but something bitter, maybe lemon, and a strong floral smell, either rose or patchouli. Wet: I still smell citrus, but sweeter, such as orange, mixed with honey, rose, and baby powder. Dry: It gets better after a while. I now smell honeysuckle, vanilla, powder, and something spicy. It’s still very floral, but it goes through a nice evolution. Verdict: It’s ok, but honestly, it’s not something I will keep.
