    Imported California Peach

    I feel like the California scents are seriously evocative. This is a firm flesh peach eaten while on the PCT somewhere up in Kennedy Meadows after you've trekked through twiggy shrubs, chest high wildflowers and succulents, and stopped in a broad meadow for a snack. Wet: Non-syrupy peach, sage, smoke/musk, and a tiny citrus. Semidry: There's something medicinal--astringent even--creeping out. Is that lilac? I think it's lilac. That's where the Last Unicorn scents went awry on me. It's very loud whatever it is. I don't like this phase. Dry: Light peach and much sage. I like that this isn't a sweet peach. It'll be a good late summer in to fall smell.

    Blood Orange, Ylang Ylang, & Lime

    Wet: A brief hit of floral quickly succeeded by the ORANGEST [Blood] ORANGE TO EVER ORANGE IN THE HISTORY OF ORANGE. Semidry: The ORANGEST [Blood] ORANGE TO EVER ORANGE IN THE HISTORY OF ORANGE SAYS THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE in this trio. Dry: Blood orange with a faint hint of lime. Just fresh citrus, like if you were in the process of cutting fruit. Hours (approx. 15) later? Still blood orange. It's not unpleasant to me: I just wasn't prepared for how it played out on my skin like a single note. I think this is a keeper if your skin amps citrus or fruit over floral or if you're looking for a very citrus forward scent.

    Snooty Bat

    Wet: Black leather. Semidry: Weirdly sweet and almost fruity (say grape-like rather than a berry). I want my leather back! Dry: Snooty Bat wears a well-loved leather jacket while it holds court and smokes clove cigarettes in an empty doorway. It's quieter than Thorns: the smoke and clove smells are there but they are happily tempered by the gentle unfunky sweet of the patchouli. The cigarette's been burning a while and nearly out. This is the end of a night of dancing and philosophizing. Or maybe lurking in a private library. If you like clove and smoke but with an air of subtlety suitable for office work or going out, this is it. I enjoy that.

    The Serpent in the Roses

    I think @Janis might be on to something about the temperature: I put this on today and got bowled over by rose. First wear, it wasn't as warm and all I got was amber. This is wild.

    The Serpent in the Roses

    Wet: AMMMMBBBUURRRHHHHHRAH. I'm aware that I amp this one because of my experience with On Darkness. Semidry: Amber, a green vegetation smell, and incense roses. Dry: Several hours after application, it's just [a more subdued, not so bellicose] amber and elements of Snake Oil. I got this a few days ago and thought I would let it settle after I tried it. The story is the same for both wears. Snake Oil and I aren't friends most of the time but I had hope because the adulterated variants get along better with my skin. It's wearable but I don't know that this one is good on me. I'll have to try it when I'm around people: sometimes I can't smell what's happening on my skin but other people can and find it pleasant. This happens with Womb Furie and Habu. #reviewathon2023

    Funnel of Love

    This started almost woody then slid in to a musky green and sour pepper on me. Leather and incense came out much later. ....jasmine who?

    Wet: SHHUUUGGGAAAAARRRRRUH, cinnamon, and vanilla. I smell like I've been baking again. Semidry: The spices are out and it's warm, comforting...but the pink peppercorn is simultaneously screechy and smoky on my skin. I don't like this note in the mix. It's got a weird tang. Dry: L wrist - inoffensive gingerbread cookie R wrist - cinammon sugar with chewy molasses This is a foodie gourmand smell for late fall/winter baked good connoisseurs. #reviewathon2023

    Cranberry, Honeyed Sandalwood, and Patchouli Root

    Wet: cranberry and honey Semi-dry: honey and sandalwood Dry: honey, sandalwood, and patchouli This is the first entry from the cranberry bog that came out as cranberry on my skin. Like the other entries, it doesn't last for very long. Ultimately, the tart fruit note blows through and leaves behind the sandalwood balancing out the sweet of the honey and the patchouli scents. #reviewathon2023

    Cranberries, Strawberries, and Sweet Cream

    I got a whiff of cranberry immediately after application. It didn't stick around to cut my skin amping the sweet from the strawberry and cream. If you like sugary or gourmand, this is your jam. On me, it throws like Beaver Moon 2007: weaponized aerosolized diabetes for anyone within 6 feet. #reviewathon2023

    Snow Lion

    Wet - Snow note is out front. Neither sweet nor minty Semidry - The amber is out and wrestling with the snow note on my skin. This wasn't iffy in a bad way. The notes really were jockeying for position. Dry L wrist - snow and spices R wrist - snow and amber The amber is gone and the snow note is hanging tough after 12 hours. If your skin really loves the lab's snow smell, go for it. This year's iteration isn't loving me. #reviewathon2023

    Elf Mutiny

    Full disclosure: the word oleaginous always gives me pause after Perilous Garden. I figured this would be greasy and sinister. Hell, I was expecting something spicy because of the tobacco and carnation...but for reasons I don't understand this was almost entirely juicy summer raspberry on the vine on my skin. These elves aren't menacing: they're maybe drunk on raspberry wine spritzers and mischievous. The other notes kept it from going full projectile diabetes at 6 feet on me. And, unlike most bright fruit smells I wear, it hung all day long. #reviewathon2023

    Snow White Rider

    Wet - sweet vanilla flowers Semi-dry - leather and sandalwood Dry - Sandalwood and leather This one was pretty straightforward. My skin amped the vanilla upfront but it ended as a mostly sandalwood and sweet leather smell at the end. I had a similar smell (musk, leather, sandalwood) sprayed on my clothes that made an excellent foil for the sweet vanilla note. #reviewathon2023

    Snow Zombi

    Wet: the snow note with a brief flash of rose Semi-dry: moss/green, snow (cold smell with bits of the pine from Snow Bunny and mint from Snowflakes), and the lab's incense-y dirt note Dry: L wrist - astringent mint--almost to the point of smelling like a cleanser--and dirt R wrist - dirt I think I enjoyed the middle of this. It took longer to play out on my skin than regular Zombi but it ended the same way. I think I was hoping that adding snow would make it last longer on me the same way Snake Oil + something else makes Snake Oil wearable for my skin. If you're looking for a big snow-and-roses smell or Zombi-but-it-snowed-in-New-Orleans, this isn't quite it. It's more like a mostly white but dirty snowball you make a day or two after its no longer powder. #reviewathon2023

    Murderous Frogs

    Wet: Granny Smith apples Semi-dry: matcha and patchouli Dry: L wrist- Oakmoss, vetiver, musk R wrist - apple, patch, oakmoss, vetiver, musk This is a morpher on me. It started out like freshly cut tart green apples, turned in to a sweet tea smell, then becomes a very clean green smell. The patchouli is sweet but not dirty or funky. Vetiver and I have a love hate relationship but it didn't veer in to smoked meat territory or wet dank. My friend described it as a clean green unisex veering toward masculine smell on me after dry down. This isn't my normal type when it comes to clean smells--I'm in to aquatics--but I enjoyed this.

    Thorns Clove Cigarette

    I'm a forever undercover baby goth. Clove cigarettes were a thing when I was a kid and then they suddenly disappeared, a casualty of the smoking ban that eventually spread to other states I think. I'm not a smoker (save the rare cigar every few years) and don't like the smell of cigarettes at all...but I LOVE the smell of good clove cigarettes. Wet: I thought I'd made a mistake at first. Something acrid in this like the beginning of Moai. Semi-dry: All clove. Smoke smell has thankfully backed off. Dry: Tobacco has arrived to temper the spicy smell. It gives a warmth to the smell and rounds off some of the in-your-faceness of the clove. I don't have a sense of throw because I was on my own most of the day. It was not quick to fade nor did I have a sense that my skin had eaten it. Hella dry: 24+ hours later and the warm tobacco clove smell is still in my house hoodie. It's comforting. I bought a nostalgic goth scent from a different company earlier this year. It was good as an ensemble piece and included a clove cigarette note/complex but what I wanted from it was this smell. If there's a single note leather or Brom Bones, I'd try layering it with this but it's absolutely bang on and lovely on its own.
