    Frog Moon 2021

    Wet: green soap It's a very clean smell. Fairly aquatic upfront with a quick tang of wasabi and flash of wood (that fortunately doesn't bloom in to pencil shavings on me). Wet green from bamboo, moss. Kind of dry: Soap phase is over. Very solidly bright wet forest on me. Dry: This ran away on me fairly quickly. L wrist - muted green with warm soap notes R wrist - green with musk and a little spice Neck - smells like the juicy middle phase on the inside of my shirt

    A Rosy Colour Paints Her Claws With Honor

    Wet: liquid dish soap This came out hard and punched me in the nose. Slightly dry: Pink (?) rose front and center. Geranium pops in and out until the overall effect is less screechy. Dry dry: This is a lot Pride. Still getting a few puffs of non-rose flower. Not sure where the vanilla is.

    Strawberries & Honeycomb

    I normally avoid the lab's strawberry because it typically turns in to unpleasant plastic candy (Twizzlers) on me. My skin chemistry can also turn sweet scents in to weaponized projectile diabetes. Yesterday, this was in your face strawberries and sugar on me for an hour before the honey started to come out. The honey stayed until this morning. It did not go powdery on my skin. I'd wear this during the summer in a sundress and hat.

    A Hundred Years Ago

    Imp: Fresh! Kind of citrusy. Wet: Verbena and bergamot. Semidry: ...what is this minty business? It's not a toothpaste or candy mint but I was not expecting that in here. Dry: There is a distinct salt and soap transition happening. Irish Spring or Coast? The citrus is back to tamp that down.

    Wet:JASMINE. SUGAR...and hay. I expected this. I amp jasmine and sweet anyway. The hay note is usually close enough to wood on my body that it gets boosted but not to 11 like wood almost always seems to go on me. I think that's carnation flashing by but it's being crowded out by the sweet smells. Semidry: Musk is sitting on the jasmine so it behaves. Tobacco and sandalwood are there quietly. I don't know where leather is off galavanting. Dry: Musk, jasmine, sandalwood, and a faint hint of leather. @groovyrooby is right about it being warm but not cinnamon burning on the skin. I struggled with when I would wear this both times I've tried it. I don't usually think of myself as sexy and this feels like expensive-sexy-in-expensive-formal-wear to me. I'm kind of overwhelmed by it because of the dissonance between this image and my usual way of going. I do, however, think I like it.

    The Old Robber-Woman

    I got leather and metal upfront. I know it's not in the notes but there was definitely sulfur/gunpowder note in this; it's present in the bottle as well. I've smelled like a very sexy man's cologne most of the day. With time, this has worn down to lowkey--but fully--competent sharpshooter.

    Haul on the Bowline

    I wish my skin allowed for the nuances of this scent to develop but alas. On me, this goes from cedar bomb to hamster cage to chocolate pencil.

    Doll's Eye Infused Honey

    Trying from a bottle I bought labeled 2010. Wet: Mint toothpaste. Sort of dry: Brewed mint tea. Mostly dry: Herbally with some not unpleasant tea astringency. Dry: Softer mint tea with herbs and that sweet dry grass thing that happens in the summer when it gets hot. It's not bad but I don't know if I could wear this. edit: 3 hours later it's honeyed baby powder with the ghost of mint.

    2020 Version Wet: I want to roll in this. I want this as a wallflower for my house. This is cool air, damp leaves, and tree with someone's fireplace far off in the distance. Dry: Still damp leaves and cool air. It's literally how October smells in California.

    Midnight Bonfire

    Wet: Wood and smoke Dry: A whiff of jasmine, smoke, and Sharpie. This doesn't like my skin. Will try again.

    Wet: I was not expecting this to be cloying. Super sweet and tingly on the skin. Semi-dry: I wouldn't say rancid bit this is a little sour now--not sure fermented pumpkin or wet brown leather. I don't think this likes me and I'm feeling similarly about it. Dry: tobacco, spice, wood. Arm is still tingly. This probably smells better on a dude.

    Epidote Phoenix

    Wet: Green with some wood. Almost Christmas tree. Semi-dry: That's not Pine-Sol but it definitely has a cleanser note developing and I don't like that a pencil shavings smell is coming with it. No no no no no no no. Dry: The cleanser tang falls back. The smell of freshly molested/disturbed evergreen is there. Warm. I'm glad I took a chance on this. I want to layer it with a rain note for "Yosemite in the summer" kind of vibe.

    Himalayan White Tea, Lemon Peel & Grass

    Wet: Lemon and Skittles. It's almost overpoweringly sweet. Kind of dry: All the sweet is gone. There's a body lotion smell that comes out on my skin. It's one of the common commercial ones, like Jergens. I have no idea where this came from--I don't put anything on my skin when I'm trying things out. Drier: Burst of grass but it's very short lived. Dry: L wrist: A hint of tea, grass, and body lotion. R wrist: Body lotion. It's not an unpleasant smell but it's not quite what I was expecting.

    Baby’s First Chainsaw

    I hate you guys for this one. I say that with love and respect. It smells like when my dad used to pick me up in his work truck on Fridays and we'd go get a treat before he dropped me back off at school or the baby sitter. It made me cry.

    Mead Moon

    Wet: Honey!!!! Just dry: The honey is all gone. Literally evaporated. There's a very pleasant citrus, more lemon than orange on me. Dry: Boozy blackberry.

    No. 93 Engine

    Wet: Harsh balsam and wax. Dry: The wood is warm and mellow now. It's very cozy. I think I'd like it better as an air freshener than a body smell unless I was doing costuming. #BPALphabetAUG20

    Wet: A little bathroom cleaner at the outset but primarily a very bright juniper scent. Dry: Same. #BPALphabetAUG20
  18. DigitalCoyote


    Wet: Bitter and acrid. Just dry: A bust of flowers and sweet smoke. Dry: Orange rind and sweet smoke. #BPALphabetAUG20
  19. DigitalCoyote


    Wet: I thought I was getting cherry Coke syrup first. This smells like the Bottle Cap candy from the 80s. Specifically cola or rootbeer. Dry: It's tingling so there's definitely the lab's cinnamon in there. It's like taking the lid off a glass candy jar of Fireball candy or those giant cinnamon bears that's been in a warm room. #BPALphabetAUG20

    Note: decanted AUG17 Wet: Lily out in front. Dry: The rose comes in gently at first before it all turns in to a very delicate and expensive soap. #BPALphabetAUG20

    #tournamentofunderdogs Wet: Something sharp came screaming to the surface, like a harsh fresh cut grass. Just dry: chocolate and orange, like that candy ball you smash around Christmas to get the segments to come apart. Dry dry: The chocolate has done the dreaded shift to baby powder on me. Verdict: This is probably a good scent for anyone the lab's usual chocolate note works on.
  22. DigitalCoyote


    Wet: Grape Kool-aid and something earthy/seedy. Dry: Sweet and dirty in a good way. Dry dry: Pixy sticks and incense. I'm not sure how I feel about it. #BPALphabetAUG20

    Santo Domingo

    Wet: Just got a mouthful of wet tropical flower bouquet. I was smelling myself but I could taste that. Dry: Smoke. I assume this is the tobacco leaf. Flowers fade out gradually. Sweet rum comes in. Dry dry: Rum and done. #BPALphabetAUG20
  24. DigitalCoyote


    Wet: Dry green herbs with some wood. It's not overwhelming. Dry: Rose sneaks out. It's not heady or sweet, like it might be on it's last legs and drying out, too. This blend is surprisingly chill? Like, in the wrong hands this blend could've been crass and obnoxious. It's elegant without being haughty. #BPALphabetAUG20

    The Red Queen

    Wet: The woods in this went "Off with her [nose]!" Dry: This is sweet and fruity. I'm enjoying that the dark fruits aren't cloying. #BPALphabetAUG20 #tournamentofunderdogs
