    Hotaru No Yu Hair Gloss

    oh, this is definitely lilac. it's definitely sweeter and more floral than Salt Phoenix, and I sense a bit of creaminess from the amber, but overall it's a very pretty springtime floral that I need a bottle of, sooner rather than later.

    Ah, I see! I tend to prefer florals over incense (they tend to amp strongly on me, if not go weird) but I'll definitely nab the decant of Hotaru no Yu first before investing in a bottle!

    Champagne & Maraschino Cherries

    I don't get almond from this, but I get a blast of cherry candy from the start, almost like those cherry gummies I had as a kid. unfortunately, within a half hour, all I'm getting is champagne, which is lovely, but I wanted both cherries AND champagne.

    Wild Rose & Cherry

    I'm not getting cherry from this, but it is a very nice rose upon the drydown, very clean. May need to consider a bottle.

    Hey, I thought I'd ask: how lilac-filled is Hotaru no Yu HG? Thinking about nabbing a bottle without trying it, but I'm wondering how strong the grass and amber notes might be (otherwise, it looks a bit similar to Salt Phoenix, which works well)

    The Peacock Queen

    So I thought the Peacock Queen HG was pretty. The perfume itself has some similarities, but on my skin it goes into old-lady potpourri with a bit of a sour/bitter note before it fades (much too soon). I'll definitely be keeping my HG decant, but the perfume isn't for me.

    Mountain Temple

    Slushy snow, with a definite sweetness from the sandalwood. It's lovely, but I don't think it's for me (I lean more toward Frostbitten Kumiho).

    Frostbitten Kumiho

    I love it. I really, really love it. It's the slushy, piney snow note that I adore with white tea. I'm not getting any ginger here, but it's a nice, clean, mellow smell that's just interesting enough not to dry down into dryer sheets. I might even layer it with Kumiho to see how that turns out. It's a cleaner, less sweet version of Skadi '04, and I'm considering a bottle.

    Lazy Daisy

    It's straight up dryer sheets on me, which I find disappointing, since I usually love the Lab's tea scents! But if you're looking for something clean and inoffensive, this is a good choice.

    Gnome Ruckus

    Definitely cherry, although on me it's more cough syrup than red vines. No cream soda, which I was hoping for!

    Midwest Morning After Magical Wig Spray

    Very, very creamy, to the point where I think I'm smelling vanilla ice cream and not a cream soda at all! Also incredibly potent: I sprayed it in my kitchen to help deal with some funk, and just...stick to one spritz. Because when you spray more than that, it's less vanilla ice cream and more pastry shop, and while it's nice at first, it will stay for DAYS.

    Honeyed Apple Hair Gloss

    To me, this smells like Dana O'Shee or O with some apple thrown in. I actually smell a little vanilla that wafts in and out, but overall, it's a very perfumy type honey with the apple. Not sure if it's me just yet, but it's very pretty nonetheless. It's what I pictured Autumn Cider HG to smell like.
  13. White fig, tea leaves, oakmoss, and lilac blossoms. Not for me, sadly. It does smell very green, and very much like a walk in the woods, but I think I got more oakmoss than anything else, and I was hoping for the tea and lilacs! I'll have to sell my bottle, I think.

    Excessively Cheerful Christmas Tree Lot Atmosphere Spray

    Oooh, piney. Very, very piney. I like it a lot! It's a bit intense at first, but fades down a bit into an almost Skadi-like breeze.

    Eucalyptus and Balsam Fir Atmosphere Spray

    Hmm. Powdery and sweet. Definitely not piney or bracing, which is what I was hoping for. Might try it again to make sure, though.
