    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. ❤️

    X Hair Gloss

    when i smell the decant it's very subtle and hard to really get an idea of the scent. then on my skin, i get mostly tobacco with some tonka backing it up. after about 15 minutes i get a tiny hint of rose, but really it's primarily tonka and tobacco as the strongest notes.

    Superior Vena Cava

    this starts with a red musk chypre and a little hint of tuberose. after a few minutes i get a little oppoponax to smooth out and warm up the scent. it's basically ends up being a subtle red musk/tuberose on me. i do like it but i have on that's very similar that has a bit more oomph to it, so i will stick with that one.

    Honey and Sweet Labdanum

    two of my favorite notes, so you know. starts with labdanum and a hint of honey. there is an effervescence here, it's kind of like cola with honey, strangely enough, when these 2 notes mingle. also the labdanum turns a bit weird with my skin chemistry so i think i will have to swap this one. so promising, but i think my skin does better with labdanum in more complex blends.

    Snake's Shadow

    i dunno why i decided to try this one, because bpal's black oudh note gets very barnyard-y on me but i was sucked in by the labdanum and was interested how that would work with snake oil. i can't really do snake oil but love a lot of the snake oil adjacent blends. anyway yeah, that stanky oudh is about all i can smell at the outset, with maaaybe hints of vetiver. after about 20 minutes the oudh finally dissipates (yay) and it's mostly labdanum with patchouli. it's nice and does lean a bit more traditionally masculine. the oudh is still there a little bit, in and out but not nearly as strong.

    Snake's Tongue

    this is very subtle at first, but i smell the caramelized tobacco primarily, with something mildly animalic. a little while later i get a hint of oakmoss, but it's mostly caramelized tobacco and woods, and it's starting to lean more traditionally masculine. it's got a sort of warm toastiness to it. it's nice but not really me...and i can't really wear snake oil and get no real strong connection to snake oil from this. i don't seem to get the vanilla or ambergris at all.

    Elegant Vulvas

    hmm, what? at first i get something super nutty smelling...not sure what that could be at all. anyway, whatever it is, it's mixed with honey, amber and a bit of lotus. after awhile i get cherry blossom and mallow root and it's so pretty. for the most part the nuttiness has died down but i smell it subtly in the background a bit. this is mostly a honeyed cherry blossom, so pretty and springlike.

    The Great Brocade Addressee

    at first i get honey and immortelle with a tiny hint of lavender way in the background. the amber incense comes forth after about 10 minutes and it's mostly honey, incense and a hint of immortelle. this reminds me a lot of some of l'occitane's discontinued honey scents, which were favorites of mine. definitely a bottle (or more) purchase for me.

    Pop-Out Eyeball Glasses Hair Gloss

    i received a frimp of this in a swap. it definitely starts out as effervescent lemon, remind some sort of cocktail with champagne. after about 5 minutes the lemon dies down some and i get blackcurrant. i don't tend to go for fruity scents but i like this better than i thought i would. it's a happy, light scent. perfect for spring and summer.

    Crinoline and Lace

    this is very sheer and soft, i have to sort of inhale strongly in order to fully smell it. i definitely get vanilla cream starting off, and seconds later i get the cognac, white musk and tobacco. it reminds me *a lot* of another bpal i've tried but i don't remember which. the coconut and tea rose are pretty subtle in this, just background notes. a very pretty, soft creamy scent, perfect for spring.

    La Basilique du Sacré Cœur de Montmartre

    sacre coeur was one of my favorite places i went to in paris many years ago, so i knew i had to try this. at first i get steel and something a bit effervescent like champagne...not sure what, along with some iris. i get hints of frankincense, lily and rose but it maintains that sparkly character for me. it dries down to a soft lily-iris scent and is very pretty. i still get that somewhat effervescent note too.
