    Lightning Strikes Literature

    Wet: Sweet beeswax ozone and a touch of musk. There's a chemical whiff from the ink. The ozone here has the same prominence and quality it does in Becoming Thunder, a favorite of mine. So far I'm not getting smoke, but there might be a touch of the lab's paper note in there. Dry: Now the paper and 'notebooks' (leather?) are coming out. Sweet, pleasing, and clean. I don't feel like I need to huff my arm for days but this is a really nice scent. A bit cologney, great for summer, very unisex. Very little throw but still nice.

    Oil and Blood

    I absolutely get the 'laundry' quality from this - think the 'linen fresh' scent of any major manufacturer but more subtle, with a splotch of dragon's blood and a whiff of something faintly resiny, which I'm guessing is the clay. My skin, at least, isn't amping the metallic quality, but I get a touch of salt. 'Clean laundry' scents aren't usually my thing, but this one errs just cool and goth enough to be a keeper. This would smell divine as a room or linen spray. As it continues to dry, I immediately had the sense memory of being in an expensive home goods store.

    The Unquiet Grave

    Floral and very, very soapy. I'm getting mostly florals with barely any sandalwood. I do smell my beloved vanilla orchid, but it's very much hiding in the background. A beautiful scent nonetheless.

    The Rose

    Simple, beautiful rose with a hint of green. The perfect, perfectly rose single note.

    Snooty Rose

    The oudh makes this dark, woody, and a little funky. I agree that it would work better as a room scent than a perfume. Strangely pleasing.

    'Tis The Voice Of The Lobster

    Very weird and watermelony! Juicy and wet. Worth a sniff, would be great for someone who loves a fruity scent.

    The Dormouse

    Floral and sharp with tea in the background. It gets a soapy quality as it dries down, which possibly comes from the herbs and peony combo.

    The Lion

    Sweet, spicy...bubblegum? Very odd.

    Subtle, sweet, and herbal. Reminds me of Gennivre a bit! Really lovely and well-balanced.

    How Doth the Little Crocodile

    Nutty pistachio, oakmoss, and mint chocolate. Very foody, and a little too much so for me!

    Groom of Frankenstein

    The ozone is extremely aquatic, actually way overpowering the leather, which I didn't expect at all. I was hoping for more leather with ozone than ozone with leather. The ozone is bright and sweet, and it's definitely a clean scent I can see being great for summer.

    Server Gremlins

    Vegetal and green on top, devious black resins underneath. Behind the Veils is definitely a good comparison, at least as far as the base notes are concerned. The top notes recall BPAL's slimy green Lovecraftian scents.

    Eanach Dhuin

    A complex and sweet marine-green scent. I can smell almost all the notes - wood and florals and water. The frankincense is pretty heavy, but I love frankincense, so that's not a problem. Just gorgeous.

    Snake's Kiss

    I had to breathe deep to catch the snake oil under the thick layer of honey and cream. Surprisingly light, for what I thought would be an overpoweringly rich scent. This one definitely deserves a full day test.

    We Believe that Death is Not the End of Man

    Agree with the other reviewers, pine on top, resins underneath. If only I didn't have such bad scent associations with pine! Still, I think this would make a lovely home scent.
