    Lucy’s Room Home & Linen Spray

    this is a slightly resiny vanilla rose scent...i smell mostly lace, rose water and a hint of opium. when i sniff the decant, i smell lavender strangely, but not when i spray it. not sure why i am smelling that. maybe it's the 'pale cologne'? i think the other notes are there but primarily i'd say this is a rose and lace scent. it has a vintage feel like dried roses. very pretty!

    The Listeners

    this starts off pretty soapy on me, with a hint of yuzu. it's like an old fashioned soap with yuzu. i think mostly white musk, orris and lilac are prominent at first. after about 15-20 minutes on the skin it's a soapy violet-white musk with yuzu. an odd scent and just far too soapy with my skin chemistry.

    Wax Cylinders

    this smells like golden metallic woods. it smells shiny and gold, much different than i imagined. in the background i smell mostly wax and maybe some mahogany. i don't seem to get much leather. after awhile the metallic/aquatic note dies down a bit but it's still always there, giving this more of a traditionally masculine quality. it definitely calls to mind drippy candles in a golden candelabra, however the metallic note isn't for me...

    Devils of the Pit Hair Gloss

    hmm i don't know what to make of this, haha. at first i was unsure whether i liked it, it was a bit brittle and strange...i think the patchouli started a bit sour on me. after about 10 minutes there's more honey and leather which are really the notes i was after the most. it seems like there is something else in there, maybe it's the type of honey? i'm not sure. the patchouli seems to subside pretty fast on me and the honey and leather dominates. overall i think i like it but it's not a total love as i guess i was hoping for more leather and a more beeswax-y honey, whereas this honey seems more floral and sweet to me.

    Lucy's Eyes

    this starts with pure lilac with a hint of a soft crystal musk. i have to inhale deeply to smell the amber, which is quite subtle. this is a pretty scent, really almost like a lilac single note on me for the first 20-30 minutes. after awhile it's a very pretty lilac-amber.

    The Empty Coffin

    i smell slightly sour roses and a oud that is thankfully more medicinal than barnyard, like bpal's black oud note is on me. there's a dry and woody sandalwood in the background. it smells quite sour and sharp on me at first. after awhile it's primarily sour rose with hints of oud. i like these notes and want to like this but it' just goes sharp and sour on me unfortunately.

    Come, Sister

    at first i get mostly gardenia and ti leaf with maybe a hint of osmanthus. it's all icy cold florals with a slightly citrus-y thing from the ti leaf. the osmanthus blooms after a few minutes on the skin and adds a slight fruitiness. the 'icy' musk comes out and tends to dominate later on, and now i think i can smell a hint of orchid as well. after being on the skin about 20 minutes it's primarily soft, clear musk and gardenia on me. this is a very unobtrusive scent, and would be ideal for work or similar situations.

    Revenant Rhythm Hair Gloss

    i got as little decant of RR to see what all the fuss was about. yep it's patchouli and vanilla primarily with a hint of hemp. patchouli is hit or miss for me, depending on the blend, but i like it in this. this smells a little like earthy chocolate for some reason, and i like it. after awhile that sweetness seems to disappear somewhat and it's mostly a dry patchouli and hemp. this isn't something i would wear a lot but would like on occasion, especially in cooler weather.

    Lilith De Milo

    in the beginning i get vanilla, coconut and white sandalwood. also, there is something in this is cool like the lab's 'marble' or 'porcelain' note that i recall from other bpal scents. i don't get any amber yet. the coconut strengthens as the sandalwood weakens and it's primarily vanilla-coconut after about half an hour. that coolness is still there, which makes an odd mix of cool and warm sweetness due to the vanilla and coconut notes.

    La Pierreuse

    starts off with a very strong rose and a sweetish tobacco. the notes seem to be there in equal amounts, though as the scent dries down, the tobacco seems to bloom and get a little sweeter and stronger with the rose fading a bit. after awhile they are fairly equally balanced...i love both notes, and this is a deep red rose so i am really liking this one a lot.

    Squirting Cucumber

    i'm finally trying this after all these years! it's a grassy fresh cucumber-y scent. it's got a cooling summer vibe...which is why i am testing it during a heatwave it reminds me a bit of the scent of my hair after washing it with super old school herbal essences shampoo: grassy, a bit herbal with cucumber. very cooling, refreshing and uplifting on a hot summer day. i'm glad i finally got to try this.

    They Shut Me Up in Prose

    this starts off with something a bit nutty and some watery florals. not quite sure what i'm smelling here. maybe vanilla and mallow flower? the florals in this are soapy on me, unfortunately...it's like vanilla soapiness. after a few more minutes, i get sweeter florals and the soapiness subsides a little bit but it's still present. i also get some sandalwood at this point. after being on the skin about half an hour, it settles into a pretty vanilla-sandalwood with florals.

    I Sit and Sew

    this is so lovely! it starts with vanilla, tea and a hint of violet and jasmine, it's so pretty. the notes are blended perfectly, but mostly it's like a slightly sweet candied jasmine with tea. it's got a nice creaminess that isn't overwhelming. so pretty and light and perfect for spring and summer.

    A Woman Practicing Calligraphy on Her Lover’s Erect Member

    this starts off with a soft powdery mossy rose. i am liking this even more than i thought i would! i think i smell the ink after a few more minutes. it seems almost like a soft white leather note. this has a vintage feel to me and i like it a lot. a pleasant surprise for me. it ends up as a fairly powdery rose after the drydown.

    The Tigress Atmosphere Spray

    when first sprayed i mostly smell leather, yay. i get something sort of fresh, i think it's black tea with some lavender. the other notes sort of bring up the background, this is like a lovely and luxurious leather scent that's still soft and not a super strong black leather...it's a bit subtler due to the other notes. i really like this one a lot. i have a candle by boy smells called 'mssr. blanchy' and it's kind of a soft leather floral scent. this one has a simiar feel to it to me, so if you happen to like subtle leather scents, i think this one's for you. i may have to get a full bottle. ❤️
