    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.

    Dead Leaves, Boot Leather, and Sweet Grass

    This smells like a fall ride, minus the horses. Wet: spicy, dead wet leaves Semidry: LEEEEAAATHAAAAAHHHHHHH (the way Rob Halford sings it), wet leaves, and grass. It's this part of it that feels like a ride. The leather is the dominant note on me but it's not necessarily gendered. The grass is sweet without being cloying or overwhelmingly sugary. Dry: Leather and sweet grass. Curiously, both wrists smell the same. That's odd for me. The leather hung well past my showering the next morning. It's a very moody, evocative smell (like the East Bay during the rainy part of the year when the hills are verdant and foggy again and the heater is just starting to warm the cabin of the car, wafting the leather boots/gloves/jacket/purse) for me. Definitely appropriate for maxi skirt-boots, cable sweater, or hoodie-based outfits.

    Spoopy Kid Assaulted by a Sunbeam

    Wet: My power to give people diabetes at 30 paces remains undefeated. SUGAR unrelenting. Semidry: Patchouli and slightly discordant bright/green smell have arrived. Dry: Patchouli and sugar notes are playing well together. I can actually pick out vanilla now. Honeysuckle comes out late. I kinda have to huff myself to the bottom of the test area to get it. It's not as in your face as the honeysuckle/patchouli duet.

    Pomegranate Peach Martini

    Wet: Pom bomb. Red and juicy. Semidry: Pomegranate alcohol. Syrupy but not sugary booze like in a tiki drink. Dry: Still syrupy alcohol. It's softer--probably the peach--but still primarily pomegranate. R wrist - The syrupy alcohol element is strong. Pomegranate Nyquil but it's not unpleasant.

    Chrome Peaches

    Wet: Is this Steamworks or Metal Phoenix but peach? It's oil and a slick metal. Semidry: I get the peach but it's like an air freshener or dryer sheet peach (rather than say syrupy fruit, peach skin, or peach fuzz). Dry: L wrist - oily metal and sweet aerosol peach R wrist - sweet aerosol peach I'm withholding a final judgment until I get to try it again. This year's peach doesn't seem to like me.

    I'm assuming this is the reissue. So, look: the lab's woods and I have a difficult relationship, with cedar being the worst offender of all (generally, industrial pencil shavings or hamster cage; specfically, amping to the unsmellable detriment of all other notes [Hilma; Wisdom, Justice and Moderation]). I'm afraid of this but I'm going by the conventional wisdom that the further down in the ingredient list it is, the less there is of it. Wet: Honey, bourbon, and vanilla. This is warm and sweet. Semidry: The jasmine is quite gentle here. There's no overpowering screech or indolic huff. Dry: ....there's wood in this? It's very softly jasmine and honey, like in a cup of tea. It doesn't throw very far so I'd describe it as a fairly intimate smell. I was expecting a much harder cedar smell but I literally have nostrils-to-skin to get it and it's quite late in the drydown. I could wear this as a daily.

    A Countenance Forboding Evil

    Wet: Deep funky patchouli Semi-dry: Smokey vetiver is choking out the patchouli. That's what I get for reading over the notes too fast. Fingers crossed it doesn't kick over in to the weird meat smell. Itchy/burning sensation to go along with it. Dry: How to explain....On both wrists, this smells "hot" kind of how mesquite gives barbecue a "hot" flavor. L wrist - BBQ pit with a whiff of orange R wrist - Orange and woody smoke ‐------ Skin twins: @savage_rose @zankoku_zen

    Peach II (2016)

    Wet: This has a Sharpie scent on me. I was afraid of it. Semidry: Like @SophieCedar said, something in this comes out as black leather on my skin. Dry: Warm peach and amber. I was mauled everywhere I had this on my skin and I'm not about to complain about it.

    Judge and Jury Atmosphere Spray

    It's definitely sexy and warm and comforting and expensive and relaxed and debauched all at the same time. I would spray this on my boyfriend and wrap up in him if he were still with us.

    Honey & Neroli Hair Gloss

    I only got honey out of this when I sprayed it 7 hours ago but I was stopped and asked what was in my hair. To them, it was kind of apricot-y or peach-y but not the spicy/peachy of the Peach Brandy Snake Oil I was wearing. If people are huffing me, I assume it's good.

    Winds of Autumn

    This doesn't like me. It's better the second try so I'm assuming it needs to sit but... If I put it in the wrong spot on my arm, it's movie theatre/stadium nachos and pickled jalapenos. I don't think the tinned cheese food note is there as strongly this time. Halite Phoenix had a similar chip vibe. I'm thinking it's the peel that's giving the jalapeno note. In the right spot, the bonfire has a bit of a chemical tang upfront but gives way to apple peel and campfire, then apple cinnamon smoke.

    Floral Sheet Ghost

    Wet: It's a bait and switch--first, there was pineapple....now there's a punk [I'm leaving it--DC] medicine in syrup form I had to take as a child that smells like this. It had to be kept in the fridge. Dry: Rose and pineapple and powder. Hmm.

    Autumn Song 2021

    On my skin, this is a "clean natural body" type smell. Like you took a shower but you smell like yourself rather than soap, lotion, or perfume. Nothing stood out in particular. It was overall very pleasant and will probably enhance whatever you actually smell like.

    A Skull, A Music Book, A Snuffed-Out Candle

    Wet: Hello beeswax! I am a gently scented candle. Semidry: Flowers (more like jasmine to me than tulips), beeswax, and sandalwood. Dry: L wrist - I found the leather. It's hanging out with the sandalwood in some zen cowboy bromance. R wrist - Less jasmine, more tulip. Beeswax and leather holding it down. I like this. It's a very indoor and the-days-are-getting-shorter-where-is-my-book-I-desire-my-own-company smell to me. This would make a great atmo.
