    Snow Scents!

    That's okay! There's a lot of info there. It's close to 4 yrs out-of-date; I plan on updating when I can.

    Snow Scents!

    In my big post above where I discussed the 3 snow notes, I noted that CGitS has the minty snow note. HTH!

    Snow Scents!

    I suspect the later is correct! Also, there's been mention of a spicy or resin-heavy snow note, but I have never ID'ed it.

    Snow Scents!

    This should be of help abt the 3 snow notes that I'm aware of--hope this helps!

    Snow Scents!

    I find the Yule LE Nuclear Winter to be very minty. I haven't sniffed my bottle in ages, but I don't remember any woods. Do check reviews, though. SO that's not for you. There are several snow notes. Will reply more.

    Fairy Wine Bath Oil

    In the bottle: The grassy scent of the dandelion is sweetened somewhat by the honey and the red currants. Wet: Much the same as on cold sniff. The dry-down: The currants and honey move to the foreground. I think this will work nicely with many honey or currant scents. Please note that I use the bath oils as a lotion. This bath oil is thicker than some that I have had from the Post in the past. A little goes a long way! Also, the scent lasts longer on dry skin than applying it to freshly-showered skin that has been towel-dried somewhat.

    Cardamom Cream Pumpkin Cake

    in the bottle: The somewhat green note of the cardamom floats over the mildly-flavored pumpkin cake. wet: The cardamom is front and center! The cake has more of the pumpkin note. the dry-down: Now the pumpkin cake and the cardamon-cream frosting have come together nicely. I'd like this to be a real food item! There's a slight tendency of the cinnamon to bother the wrist area that's somewhat present; I'll have to remember for future autumns to put some unscented baby oil on first.

    2006: Fruit Phoenix

    in the bottle: It seems to be mostly SO w/ tiny whiffs of all the other notes. wet: The other notes are slowly coming forward. the dry-down: A black leather note from Krampus' switches is most obvious. Perhaps the black fruits will come to my rescue later. The pine forest, alas, is far in the distance. I'll give this some time to age, as fresh SO isn't my thing, but that black leather note is problematical. ETA: much later: Abt 2 hrs after I applied this, the dark fruits began to bloom beautifully on my wrist.

    Springtime scents

    Some scents that I like for spring are: Embalming Fluid, Needlework, Empyreal Mist, Dorian, Alice, Lady Una, anything that is of fairy, the Strawberry Moons, The Mouse's Sad and Long Tail, Dublin, the Irish bards series (A lot of these I wear in summer as well!)

    Lola Hair Gloss

    In the bottle: A sweet ozone with some black pepper. Wet on my hair: It smells rather like Snow White w/o the florals. Sweet snow w/ coconut. Dry on my hair: More like a sweet peppery ozone.

    Blauer Mond 2018

    In the bottle: the resins are scenting a piney woods that have new tomato plants growing on the verge Wet: some sweetness floats over the pine trees--it's probably from the lovely blue musk The Dry-down: still very much the herbal (now a dried tomato leaf) pine forest with hints of the resins and some sweet blue musk like a night sky with dimmed stars I rather like this for a gentle, sleepy-time scent.

    Pomegranate Clove Bath Oil

    In the bottle: The fruity-tartness of pomegranate, with cloves swirling lightly in the mix. Wet: This is good! My lovely pome, with just enough clove to make it "sweet and darkly warming" indeed. The dry-down: Not really a morpher. Happily, the clove never overpowers, which was a concern before I read roseus' review. After that reading, I was pleased to order. Note: I use the bath oils as moisturizers on my dry skin.

    White Pumpkin Floss

    In the bottle: All the notes, each trying to rise to the top! There's also a hint of an incense or resin note, though nothing like that is listed. Wet: The overall brightness has calmed down; there's more white chocolate and marshmallow now. The spicy note is muting to a dull roar. It did "spike" for a second as I applied to my wrist. The dry-down: Finally, all notes, including the unknown resin/incense note, merge into a scent that's not overly sweet (white chocolate in RL is rather sweet). Pleasant yet grown-up; on me this is not a little girl's scent. If you like Boo, or the white chocolate perfume oils from the various Lupers' box of chocolates, this might find a niche in your wheelhouse. ETA: I glanced over the other reviews as I was posting, and the spicey note is the pumpkin floss? That's surprising. I never think of pumpkin or candy floss as spicey.

    Snow White

    This is for the 2017 version. In the bottle: Sweet snow, with just a touch of coconut Wet: Now the florals arrive, more green stems than flower petals The dry-down: As it dries, Snow White's notes blend into a sum that's greater than the whole of its parts. There's the sweet snow, but tempered by the green florals, and mixing with the coconut. (I know coconut isn't listed, but I sniff it each year that I try Snow White.) It's always lovely, but always a little different each year.

    Frostbitten Bliss

    In the bottle: Bliss, but with more sweetness that feels a bit chilly Wet: More of the cocoa note is appearing; the extra sweetness is still present, but not so cool The dry-down: In the end, it's the very nice Bliss with some extra sweetness, perhaps a light sugary vanilla note with only a rather faint hint of coolness
