    Wolf Milk

    I normally can't wear the "dead leaves" anything from bpal, as they are so strong and headache inducing with my skin chemistry. I try them on occasion, usually when there's leather (a fav) involved, just in case, hence my trying this one. leaves first (no surprise there), and they hang around, but surprisingly they aren't as strong as normal. I do get some leather for a little bit, but it's short-lived and not that strong (hard to place what kind it is - maybe brown- but it was nice and not sour). The bergamot (earl gray) is lovely! Especially hours later, I get bergamot with some leaves. All I did was put a testable bit from my decant on my wrist, and I've been able to smell it the scent for hours. I know it goes on stronger as leaves, but this Earl Gray is so perfect I'm going to do a full try on another day. I'll update this when I do.

    The Groom

    Leather is strongest in the decant. I do get the leather on my skin, which is nice, though leans a bit chemical, but I'd say most of the chemical aspect is from the ozone. The musk/fougere is the strongest note; it's hard to tell where one stops and the other begins. The leather only noticeable when I sniff closely. As a leather-note lover I'm glad I tried it, but it's not a keeper

    Banana Gingerbread

    spicy, cinnamon? Ginger? Hint of banana underneath. The spice dies down and takes most of the throw with it. maybe a hint of banana left? I barely got any banana, if at all. And I didn't get "gingerbread". It was a heavily spiced foodie spice thing. it was short-lived too, but strong while it lasted.

    Congealed Blood & Oozing Viscera

    All I did was crack the imp open. I didn't even remove the lid. POW! Cinnamon. I like cinnamon, Chimera is my favorite GC scent, and I am legitimately scared of trying this it's so strong. It's a mix of cinnamon sticks and candy cinnamon and just pure cinnamon essence. I pull the lid out and sniff closer. Cinnamon, bandages ... old wounds? For real? puts a tiny, tiny bit on my arm: the cinnamon remains the strongest note, like a cloud around me, and I think I'm stuck smelling like cinnamon forever now. interestingly, if I smell my arm closely I get medical gauze. wild. *update - after an hour or two the cinnamon backs off drastically and the throw drops. The gauze seems cleaner too

    Honeyed Pear Tart

    the pear is strong with this one. But it's also canned and syrupy. (fresh pears simply don't smell the same as canned). If i sniff my wrist directly I do get honey. Like actual honey smell. but, wow, this is a STRONG throw. Just a little on my wrist is too much this one is for those who truly wish to smell of pear doomsday_disco --- well, that is a memorable review 🤣
  7. I got both the Thanksgiving special imp and the Yule, which Ted confirmed were different scents. And boy, are they ever different! Thanksgiving Gift: in the imp -wow! really yummy pie crust (way better than the yule one and way more recognizable), some lavender with it wet and dry on skin - lavender with cream and a touch of something plastic-y /sunscreen-y, very light and not foodie (no crust on my skin) after an hour or so - more creamy coconut! Yule: in the imp, pie crust and something astringent wet on skin almost cashmere? a sense of heaviness, almost sunscreen-y or platic-y, and...coconut? Maybe, maybe the barest hint of lavender underneath dry - definitely cashmere (warm and musky). weird. and a more noticeable occasional hint of lavender *I'm adding thoughts on both to both threads

    Lavender Coconut Cream Pie

  9. at first - blueberry! And the crust with some little spice (not graham cracker, not cinnamon). Not overly foodie. Becomes heavily more cheesecake after an hour or so and loses other notes

    Batty Perversion

    1000% percent this is Pina Colada. maybe with a tonka grounding note. No leather to speak of *edit. I let it sit for a few days then tried it again. Definitely still pina colada, but a nice one without too much alcohol, there's a real nice tonka "spice" to it for sure and almost a touch of candy sweetness and occasional caramel. And yet, it's not "foodie" I really love this! (and I didn't care for the GC Perversion)

    Snootier Bat

    In the bottle I smell....nothing?!? on my skin....sugared incense, emphasis on the sugar. WHERE is my leather? *cries* My skin definitely amps it, which is good, otherwise I wouldn't even know what it smells like. But all i get is sweet, almost tooth-achingly sweet. *edit, ooh hey, some black musk joins in after about 30 or so minutes...dragging a whiff of leather with it. Now this smells good. Not at all what I was expecting, but good.

    Snooty Bat

    I'm a lover of bpal's leather most of the time, especially black leather, and a goth. I was really hopeful for this... really low throw, very "incense" at first - the blend of patch and nag champa is very nice and not too heavy, floral, or dirty. no leather? it's such a low throw it's hard to tell. maaaaybe if I squint? I think I"ll try this again later before passing, but I'm not hopeful

    Aristocratic Warriors

    a bright metallic scent. and reading the other review, it could have something lemon-y, but it's not lemon cleaner. it's a weird bright/almost-sour thing that eventually hints at more leather than lemon, but it's a sour-leather

    Goblin for Chad

    I try all the Lab's leather--including blends. Sadly, I get no leather from this. The aftershave and balsam notes are strongest, and a little medicinal. There's also a sour (almost poopy) note which is the oud on my skin (sigh). And maybe a hint of rosewood, but if I try to sniff for it, I get a nose full of oud.... better luck to those with different skin chemistry

    Fairy Lobster Foam

    I loved the Lab's ability to nail the maraschino cherry scent in their MC&Champagne scent, but the Champagne ended up drowning out the cherries on me. So I wanted to try again. This is DEFINITELY M. Cherry, but almost too much at first, but then the marshmallow comes out, and it becomes more of a marshmallowy toasty, almond-cherry mix lol
