    On Wednesday, I Will Promise You a Phantom

    Wonderful addition to any lavender lovers' collection. This has the smoothness and muskiness of Duet- Ti Leaf and Champaca Petals but of course its lavender, ylang ylang and myrrh. Soothing, slightly vanillic sweet, swaying purple and gold chiffon. Wisteria is the bright purple/white note pulling this all together, showing how it doesn't have to be the capital number 1 note...it can actually play a crucial supporting role. Anyone who loves Air and the Ether or Ti Leaf & Champaca (brainfarting on any other similar scents..sorry) should give this a try.

    Mary Shelley

    I get soft victorian oriental perfume and laudanum with a green ozone. Pretty nice and cozy. I was expecting a cacophony of atmospheric notes and an overall unsettling experience but no. Its warmer and more wearable than preconceived.

    Guys? I've never tried Storyville. There. I said it. Confession over. I agree its got a poufy light jasmine effect. I say closer to BiggerCritters when wet. Dry- Add a bit of cinnamon baking spice like Chimera, light red musk and a touch of that boozy swarthy Smut sugar musk mix...*blam* Pumpkinville. Lower throw, on me but pretty nice!

    Black Satin Sheet Ghost

    Starts off smelling much like Leather Phoenix + unmistakable loud narcissus. Calms into a cleaner slightly more floral feminine Leather Phoenix. The narcissus shuts the hell up thank god. FYI I love the *idea* of narcissus but not the reality, if high up on the components list. This is a perfect balance. I get to enjoy my narcissus without the pee. Laquered part is fantastic. Shiny black for sure. The throw is amazing. I love it. Classy, oriental, green floral, smoky, dark n gothy, highly feminine, and stealth. Perfection.

    Drow Yoga Instructor

    Having the same experience as doomsday_disco, here. Its mostly sweet vanilla plum with a drop of indigo note and a breath lavender. I get the saffron note too a la Love's Philosophy... Its more nocturnal dolly.goth sweetie on me? I mean I like it but, its unexpected.

    Georgia Peach, Oakmoss, Sage, and Vetiver

    Hey guys? Ever go into Bath n Body Works in a fuckitI'mstuckatthemall moment? Ya. We've all been there. This smells like Gingham. But it doesn't burn your nose. And its missing that obnoxious chypre note. Great, right? Like the previous poster said, yes, this is a masculine peach scent. Earthy musky peach. Its good though!

    Peach Brandy Snake Oil

    Nomnomnomgone. My skin ate it. From steaming hot smokin peach brandy snake oil to faded peach air freshener in 10 min. Dude, I suck. 😆

    Pontifex Pontificum

    This. Is. Lovely.♥️♥️♥️ I've been on an orange blossom/ neroli kick this summer and PP here has completed my collection. Its warm soft frankincense, definitely rose tinted incense and creamy white citrus notes. Soothing, fresh from the salon, and a bit of warm green.

    Ti Leaf & Champaca Petals

    This is another swirler. Nothing smacks me close up but its buttery smooth incense...if that makes any sense? Ok wait...lemme try this again. Uhhh...champaca petals, I think I love you. You're the essence of incense. If I ever got to meet any of the Taras, I'm positive this is how they'd smell. One of my all time favorite duets, instantly. This is pure serenity. The ti leaf offers a crisp clean herbal edge and compliments the smooth ylang ylang-like champaca petals wonderfully. Floaty, soft, outer dimensions, gaze-softening loveliness.♥️♥️♥️♥️ BIG love for this one. HUGE.

    Scorched Oak & Blonde Tobacco

    Most of the duets are lighter blends, which was something for me to acclimate to...I've gotten used to a solid perfume slap to the senses over the past 12 years (thank you may I have another) or maybe my snooter is dulled due to profession..?..anyways! With that said, many duets and menages read like hard to pin atmospherics, think Haunted or The Ghost. Something you can't huff yourself high at close contact but, it follows you and swirls around you. This is case in point. Musky and verrryyy golden tobacco and slowly burning oakwood smoke...like seasoned wood on a good sunny fall day temps in the 50s getting a fire started before the sun drops down. I LOVE IT. While the throw is medium, watch it last through the shower and keep following for hours.

    White Oakmoss & Lavender

    Starts out evenly balanced and a bit of a Gaueko vibe. Later smells like an oakmoss powder mens fougere mix with lavender in the background. I amp oakmoss, so take with lots of salt here.

    Brood X

    I wanna say the hazelnut and sugar is weaker in 2021's version. Much drier like sandalwood and hay with an ozone of hazelnut and sugar. A nice melody but the bass isn't thumpin like last time.

    Since There’s No Help

    I mean... Is there something wrong with me that I find this refreshing and uplifting? Or does it make me gother than goth? Please say its the latter. I love it. Herbal sweet juniper white tea with lemon, amplified by white musk. The davana is brilliantly white as usual. What is WITH davana anyways? I mean is it a god/dess in perfume form?! Perfect summer refresher. Grab a bottle for sweltering heat days or the winter-bummers.

    Honey, Agarwood, Opoponax, and Leather

    The honey plays backseat. Opoponax and oud/agarwood are in front and leather middle. Oud/agarwood is moderate to low amperage. Overall, drydown is pleasant in a fine italian perfume way (sorry for strange frame of reference. A friend collects italian perfume and it reminds me of this) its rich, unisex leaning masculine but honestly a lot like chanel no.5 or charlie in its oud/chypre appeal. Golden smooth and silky with a citrusy/ deep wood bite from opoponax and oud. Glowing warm brown in color feel. Complex. Honestly, the further I get into this, the more I love it.
  15. Thanks for being a great swapper/buyer! ♥️♥️♥️♥️
