    Party Tricks Hair Gloss

    Uhm...mine is lasting quite a while? Sorry guys 😕 Ultimate pink scent. Less viscous and foody than Velvet Pink Kitty but not hairspray pink or floral pink like Hime Gyaru or Lady in Speckled Pink Kimono or Right Atrium. Foody and juicy but clear without being crystalline. Does that make sense? Tis my new favorite pink. I want it in every medium and I want to live inside Party Tricks permanently.

    Knee Bolster of Ono

    I've treasured my decant for quite a while. The elements hold over time, which is wonderful. So, you can expect relatively the same experience aged as you see in these older reviews from when 1st issued. Wistful blue airy sweet floral. Distinctly blue lilac. There's no escaping the combo of ultraviolet and apertif wine-like lilac. White sage, in its astringently herbal uplifting way, is still powerful- clearing my brain fog and worry this morning, which I'm greatful for. Sweet pea gives a fresh air summer feel. Tobacco is a nice earthy ground. Orris? Not smelling much until drydrydry-down. The combined elements give the perception of actually smelling a blueberry bush in a garden. A scent that wonderfully defies nature in all the ways I wish could happen in Maine..as lilac peaks in June and blueberry in late August.

    Voluptuous Wantonness

    Ohhh man. This is my perfect scent and I'm never letting go. Like just as magical as Gun Moll and Red Lantern. Its sweet opium-like warm red and the fig just *glows*. Sugared red, no bandaids, oudh is playing nice. Fantastic. I've found my scent profile.

    Silver Lace

    Silver Lace is a refreshing addition to the pack. I love it. The bergamot ti leaf and white musk are gleaming white with a sweet smooth sheer vanilla lace over them. Wonderful bright sweet oriental. I will cherish this.

    Dark Lace

    I get Black Lace's cognac vanilla tobacco and linen notes with grave dirt and black loam added. Kinda reminds me of Penny Dreadful without the red feel...more just...dark. The hammer horror incense starts out giving this a Grand Guignol Thanatos vibe but folds into the tobacco within 5 minutes. On me, its a slightly more cakey bakery Black Lace with a touch of moss and dirt. Uhhh rename it Christmas Cookies in a Graveyard? I dunno. I do agree its mellower in throw than Black Lace. Overall, its warm resinous sweet and incensey. Like a goth holiday party. Yea. I'll stick with that.

    Strawberry and Rosebud

    What? I didn't review this? Its awesome. Mostly strawberry with a little pink and red rose. I smell like a strawberry shortcake doll! Sweet joyous and buoyant. I notice that people's expressions soften and lighten when they stand close. Me thinks this stuff works.

    The Shadowed Veil

    Ooh this is nice. As described! Sexy dark...and it wafts like Haunted, but darker and a bit toffee-like sweet. Floats around the wearer but you don't get a straight shot when you stick your nose directly on it.

    Pistacho Pumpkin Truffle

    Wet phase is gorgeous, strong toasted nutty pistachio meat, fatty sweet belgian chocolate, pumpkin. Le Sigh.... Drydown is strong nutmeg and fatty belgian chocolate. Not my gig. I should have read the notes closely. I amp baking spices. My fault.

    Pomegranate Smoke Hair Gloss

    Indeed. Very close to what I smell inside my nose when faced with a period of delicious indecision. One moment in particular was staring at myself in a mirror practicing dia de los muertos makeup, an October evening in 2014. This was a strange in-between timeperiod for me- after my husband walked out on new years day. The mystery and magic had started to re-enter my life, that fall. Though I scent synthesize my emotions, so sorry if this sounds weird.... But I smelled THIS. Smoky pomegranate incense with tinges of yearning, confusion, hope, complacency, contentedness, lonliness, and sexual empowerment.

    Haunted Pumpkin Patch

    Ohmanohman....no disappointment here! Strong Haunted amber black musk mixed with warm fresh pumpkin and a bit of dark green vine. I didn't think Haunted could get sexier...I was wrong. Its got this slightly dangerous lurking around in the dark outdoors sexy vibe now. Wholymolyyy...

    Apple Sugar

    Of course, with all apple scents, this goes on strong burning-off apple and settles to many base notes. The apple goes to the backseat driver position...and what's worth it on this one is the sugar musk. Oof. Its intoxicating! Sweet, syrupy, slightly liquor-like.

    Dusk in Autumn

    This. Its my new favorite. Its half oriental half gourmand. Beautiful, slightly sweet, earthy smoky. Perfectly balanced dark sexy and magnetic. Ungh.

    Popcorn Ball Snake Oil

    The drydown process was a wild ride, producing many confusing twisted expressions on my face... Worth it! Totally sweet corn syrup stuck popcorn balls and snake oil. Its awesome.

    Pink Peach, Grapefruit, Yuzu, & Pink Musk

    I can smell each component separately at different times in the sniff. The pink peach is so cutesy and the pink grapefruit and yuzu are just playing on a swingset together. Refreshing and sweet and yes...pink as hell. My new favorite girly scent.

    Revenant Rhythm Hair Gloss

    The thing I like about BB and Revenant Rhythm... Its consistent. Both versions smell the same. Every bottle smells the same. Its a straight-forward scent. Warm, sexy, limb loosening patchouli hemp and vanilla. There's no side punches. No period chemistry ruined it today. No weather changes the way it smells. A signature scent thats hippie-ish but on the urban side of things. Easy to wear. ❤
