    The Queen of Hearts

    How have I not reviewed this in my 11 years of BPAL? I've purchased it, received frimps of it, carried it around with me... for years! Anyways...a bit biased bc lily of the valley, calla, and cherry are some of my favorite notes. This starts off strong white florals and sweet cherry, colliding into and cross each other. The drydown is so pretty. Reminds me of Right Atrium with its cherry blossom pink/white feel. This is wonderful. Sweet somber hushing soothing lily of the valley and waxy calla with just a bright sweet touch of cherry smoothing out the 2. Its been a fond one over the years and maintains its position well.

    Caramel Apple Cookie

    Whoallyshitsticks thank you, lab!❤️ Nice surprise! Wet- applesapplesapples. Like I stuck my head under the local orchard's grocery cider tap when no one was looking and chugged like a fratboy on rush week...(dammit I've always wanted to do that. Life regrets....well maybe just as good, I did fill my hand with nacho cheese straight from the gas station machine and the cashier didn't charge me because he was impressed I had the grit to sustain palm burns just for the love of cheese...but I digress) Anyways...drydown is exactly as titled. Delicious. The apple has a pink note to it which brightens the blend. The cookie part is sweet buttery but isn't overwhelming. You definitely feel like you're getting a hell of a cookie full of apple chunks, juicy and fresh. I love it. Great staying power. Apple actually stuck around for a couple hours!

    Ok well...i'm reviewing this with what I thought I smelled before looking up notes... I smelled musk and cucumber rind, wet. Must have been the lily of the valley and honey? Drydown is a warm musk, notes of dried rose and almond and gummy myrrh too. Its lovely, feminine, bold, but quiet.

    An Open Grave Underneath the Heavy Leaves

    This starts out just as powerful as hoped; all dry grass hay and herbs but my skin consumed it in 5 min until it just smelled like the inside of a new box of shoes. Me sad.

    Unsettling Portraits

    This smells like a couple Lush scents, faded and mellowed.... I'm thinking 29 High Street? Yes! That's it! The warm amber glow of 29 High Street! Its like I can smell gardenia and a bit of lime and tonka and everything! Oh wait. There's also a distinct books/bound hardcovers smell too. Even better! Its warm, comforting, sophisticated, and enlightening. These portraits can stare at me all they want! Lol!

    Sinister Groundskeeper

    Simple, straightforward and pleasant. For such a sinister character he sure smells pretty! Its reminiscent of Graveyard Dirt or maybe Penny Dreadful when wet, with the bit of dark dry blood. I like the green touch of dandelions. Dries greener to Unsavory Gravediggers with blood instead of booze. I like!

    Disembodied Malevolent Laughter

    All notes present, exactly what's on the tin. I'm surprised the resins against the light high notes aren't more manic and mismatched? This blends together quite well actually! An icy lemony white musk perfume, reminiscent of white tea but more complex.

    Bookcase Passage

    Polished wood and cracked dry leather with a bit of dust. The aged neglected aspect of a well loved study, gone cold dry and dusty. Accurate!

    Icy Drafts

    Agreeing with the aromatheraputic aspects of this. Its sweet, soft, refreshing and cold. I guess getting a dead finger down your spine isn't such a bad thing? Smells a bit like lemonade w/ mint in the drydown. Saving this for the summer heat relief!

    Cracked Mirrors

    This is softer than I assumed it would be? I mean its great..but I was thinking more pronounced shattered sharp dangerous glass? Its not Sea of Glass sharp, for sure. It dries to a gorgeous soft white musky chypre floral, reminiscent of high-end commercial perfumes like Bulgari etc. Silver note- yes. Glass note- not as much on me? I still love it though.

    Creaking Floorboards

    I can smell the black tea and what I perceive as parquet floor lacquer? I see the dentists office association for sure. It smells very similar to that putty stuff used to make mouth impressions. Great. Now I can't undo that association. Ohhh Seymour...!

    Endless Corridors

    Goth to the hilt. Smoky, vetivery dark sexy beeswax. If I don't order a bottle of this, I think my lifetime goth membership will be revoked and I'll be ostracized in an outfit of shame: chinos & pink polo shirt. I better get on it. Excuse me now.

Were you beyond excited when Starburst came out with an All Reds pack? If yes to both, this is the perfume for you. The one that will make you feel like The permanent Red Candy Winner. May you never suffer red candy deprivation ever again, with this wonderful concoction at your side.
