    Bleeding Walls

    Love this so much. Was gonna buy a bottle then I realised it’s out of stock It reminds me of Tom Ford’s Lost Cherry but it’s heavier on the cherry (his is more almond) and musk.

    The Black Temple Burlesque Troupe

    I'm not getting the unisex part everyone's talking about...I think it might translate a little sweet on a man. This is sexy in a very womanly burlesque kinda way. It's all cacao, tobacco and incense on me. I love it!

    Now Winter Nights Enlarge

    Omg, how is it that I've never reviewed this scent before? I've had it for years and coming from a tropical climate, tend to reach for it only on cold & rainy days. Humidity does not like strong smells. This is a gorgeously sexy smoked caramel red musk combination that should be reserved for evenings. Invokes Autumn so beautifully, though I believe it was one of the Yule releases. In fact, I just got reminded of it as I was sipping on my Starbucks Salted Caramel Mocha Frappe! How insane is that? Beth, you are incredible.

    Variety of Pleasing Amusements

    Luper win! Finally! This actually smells better on my clothes, than on my skin! I can't pick out individual notes, but I do get tobacco, honey and leather. It's lovely. Very comfortingly familiar, but I can't place a finger on what it reminds me of... I might need a bottle. Still contemplating.

    Narrow Opening

    Rum, leather and frankincense. Hell, it even smells a bit like cinnamon and pine cleaner! No vanilla or champaca. Was expecting so much from this.

    Blooming Rose

    Peony and rose are not my best friends. Got nothing on my skin save for rose baby powder. Bleurgh.

    Lady in Speckled Pink Kimono

    Peony and something sweet. No vanilla orchid. In any case, it's way too demure and doesn't have much character for me to wear.

    Blossoms in Springtime

    Vanilla bean and vanilla blossom, golden honey, antiqued amber, beeswax, copal, lotus blossom, and helichrysum. I wanted to love this. In the imp, it reminded me of Penis Admiration (one of my absolute faves). On my skin, all I get is spicy floral powder. If helichrysum is indeed immortelle, explains why I can't wear it. Had the same problem with The Rose In The Deeps Of His Heart - kinda dusty in a very weird way. No vanilla, no honey, nothing. Also, it kinda burns on contact...I don't know why! So far all the 2012 Lupers I've tried have failed on me.

    L’Essence de la Passion

    I inhaled this in the imp and my eyes rolled back in my head. I love red musk anything, so I just had to try this. On my skin, it's red musk (much like Smut), carnation (I have tried this flower at BPAL before? It's incredible! Reminds me of something out of my grandfather's garden - been looking for it forever!) and honey. Sexyyy. I need a bottle.

    L’Essence de L’Ardeur

    Biggest disappointment of all the Eros Inquisitions. This started out so beautifully...rich chocolate. Then rose, rose & rose. Then washing powder. Then *poof*

    L’Essence de la Folie

    Eh... Is there pomegranate in this? Or is that just the Daemonorops? No chocolate to my nose. I just get a blast of cinnamon and pink pepper mixed with...bubblegum is probably accurate. I was expecting more "madness" as well. It's not crazy enough. Just spiced fruity baked goods. To the swap pile, it goes.

    Pink Lace

    Got this as a generous frimp from a decant circle purchase. Pink Lace is the strawberry version of my beloved Dark Chocolate, Whiskey & Cognac Truffle. I don't fancy pink, nor do I like strawberries...a little girly for me. In fact, the strawberries disappear from my skin after about half an hour, leaving only the booze and vanilla/cream? No incense. I have Egg Nog and Mother Shub's Spiced Lait de Chèvre (my faves) if I want to smell like Bailey's.

    The Sorrow of Love

    Stargazer Lily. High-pitched and soapy after. Nothing else. The hunt for my perfect Yeats scent continues...

    The Rose in the Deeps of his Heart

    Dude, what is this? Old cupboard in a dilapidated house with withered flowers, talcum powder and sawdust? To be fair, I'm not a rose lover, but I did want to try this for Yeats alone. There's some amber (which I love, but not in here) and frankincense. Smells a little bitter, if you know what I mean. Would be a nice scent in an antique gift, but on my skin, no.

    Frimp from the lab. I didn't get any hazel in this. Just rose. Then it all disappeared within a couple of hours. Would rather wear Lilith or Black Rose for more character.
