    Wet and in the imp: it smelled really green and floral to me, which is why I avoided it. Drydown: i began to smell the syrupy quality someone mentioned, but then it kept morphing. It's like it cycled through all the different scents, some overlapping with others. Nothing really standing out over the others. The vetiver is making this smell a bit darker and dirtier than I would have liked. Everything smells great together, but there's one note that makes a hard right-turn for me, and I'm pretty sure it's the vetiver. Could be the pine, but i doubt it. Dry: The vetiver eventually calms down, but I'm impatient. It does end up smelling sweet and headshop-y. And yeah, Dr. Pepper actually feels kinda close, except without the bubbles. It still doesn't do much for me, though.

    Revenant Rhythm Hair Gloss

    I feel like this differs slightly from the perfume. I feel like there's a bit of cedar or something, since I get the slightest hint of pencil shavings. Overall, it's got a strong throw, and it's a lovely patchouli sweetened by vanilla. What a winner!

    Revenant Rhythm

    This is so good! It's the got sweet patchouli that I was wanting, similar to Lush's Lord of Misrule. It's strong, and hangs around all day. LOVE!

    Sweet, honeyed peach. The rose is in the background, and feels very minimal during drydown. It seems like the oud gives this a bit of woodiness. There's a slight powerderiness with my chemistry, which I'm sure is the amber. For someone who is wanting something super fruit-forward, I'd suggest testing it first. It is evocative of peach, but with all the other notes, I can see this disappointing some people. Overall, I'm sure the majority of people will love it, though. I did try it layered over Daddy, but I don't have phenomenal feedback to report.

    Peach I

    I was hoping for something similar to Peach V, but this is not it. However, it's a lovely peach that lasts all day. With the musk, it's more adult than a super sweet peach that would feel adolescent. And luckily, the honey doesn't amp or overpower anything.

    The Lights of Men's Lives

    I don't really get beeswax, dust, or smoke. It actually reminds me a lot of the creaminess from Atsui-mono. I guess the honeyed vanilla is a powerful note that I bring out in both.

    Spirit Fingers

    Sweet clove candy. It goes away from overpowering candy, to a musky, pepper with clove. I'm pretty sure that's what pepper ends up doing on me. I can see warm, woody spices being a good descriptor for this.

    Execute Confession Module

    I would have expected stronger pepper given the previous review, but it ends up smelling more like sunscreen to me. It's actually kinda nice. I wouldn't attribute pepper or clove to it, it seems to come across as a pleasant musk.

    This goes on strong. Minty toothpaste and slushy snow. Reminds me of Mentos! I don't think I ever pick up the green apple. After this has had a while to settle on my skin, it definitely morphs. The mint moves to the background, and there's this woodiness that comes out. It's not overpowering, and kinda smells like pencil shavings and candy. This is actually kinda wearable at this point. I'd say this is good for someone looking for a snowy, Christmassy mint, without a lot of the other fluff.

    Adventure with Bandits in a Kago

    I originally fell in love with this because of the peach. But my skin chemistry brings out the floral note. Husband thought it smelled like jasmine. So, off to swaps this goes.

    Strawberry Moon 2019

    I feel like this is really close to the 2017 release, but with a bit more staying power. It doesn't last on me all day, though, maybe 6 hours. And it's a bit more adult, less on the candyish side.

    Mischievous Cat Hair Gloss

    I am not one for ambers, they go kinda perfumey on me. I grabbed this because of all the fruit, and it doesn’t disappoint. However, because of the ambers, cardamom, patch, it has a sort of creamy, musky quality. And there’s a depth that gives this a grownup edge, and doesn’t smell like a fruity scent for kids. This is light and dreamy. It doesn’t last long in my hair. I’m left with a slightly tangy peach-ish amber that is comforting to catch whiffs of. I definitely recommend this if you’re wanting something peachy that is evocative of Lupercalia and the Shungas.

    For the life of me, I cannot identify any of these individual scents. I'm at a loss for how to categorize this in my brain. An incensey floral is what comes to mind, but that doesn't seem accurate. It does remind me of Sunday morning, and getting ready for church with my grandmother. I guess the only thing similar between this and Chantilly Lace is oakmoss, so hmmmm..... I would categorize this as a fresh, feminine, incensey floral, but only because my brain doesn't know what to do with juniper, myrrh, and patchouli together.

    This totally reminds me of a sunscreen lotion. There's a vague white floral and clean smell. It fades fairly quickly. I think my chemistry doesn't know what to do with this. It's pretty, but I can see it smelling a lot better on someone else.
