    Red Musk

    YES. I had a bottle of Smut from 2007, I think, that I did end up swapping away because it's just not my kind of scent, but as it ages it is just DIVINE.

    Allergy Questions, Allergies and other reactions to oils

    I would definitely recommend Dana O'Shee. However, it could be the "bitter almond" note you're reacting to. A lot of people react to cinnamon, but I don't and it happens to be one of my favorite notes. Eclipse is the only BPAL that I've ever reacted to, and I'm fairly positive that it's the bitter almond note that does it - I don't have a problem with regular almond, just bitter.

    What do bottles and labels look like?

    I have no idea how old your bottle is, but I know that there was a Jack reformulation at some point in time... let me see if I can find it. ETA: found references to a reformulation - announcement that Jack is backordered and Beth's thread about Jack II and some more talk about Jack II.

    What do bottles and labels look like?

    All of my 10mLs are cobalts, but I have seen ambers pop up on sales page here and there.

    Banana Peel in a Graveyard

    Rotting banana peel with loam. Fantastically realistic, but not something I want to want to smell like!

    The East

    Straight to soap on me. An expensive, gorgeous-smelling soap, but soap nonetheless.

    Mr. Ibis

    Mmmm, I don't get an papyrus or aloe out of this at all. It's all musky vanilla sandalwoody goodness on my skin. It's not cologney or soapy on me, unlike some other reviews. This is one of my favorite blends.

    Fairy Wine

    I agree with earlier reviews stating that this smells like a Lush store. It's an pretty scent that doesn't morph too much on my skin, but ultimately not for me.

    I didn't get any rose or lily out of these, sadly. Just an overwhelming, soapy light rose on my skin. Gorgeous in the bottle, though.

    Lady Una

    This went straight to an acrid, ammonia-ish scent with soapy undertones on my skin. Shame, because it is so beautiful in the decant.
  11. I saw this thread and thought, did someone rename the Gelt review thread? But yes, joining the crowd, Gelt is probably what you're looking for.

    Looking for scents that smell like hugs

    All already mentioned, but I'll second, Sudha Segara, Dreadful Lies, and Hod.
  13. One of my all time favorite blends. Deathly Pride is wonderful as well.

    Apples?? Finding the right apple scent

    The apple note in SGA lasts for a very, very long time. Although it's more of a spiced apple, the apple in Fearful Pleasure is also very long-lasting.
  15. Shanghai is lovely in the summer.
