    What's the best coconut blend?

    My favorite coconut scent that rarely gets mentioned in the "coconut" category is Snake Charmer. It's a discontinued scent, but you may be able to track down an imp or bottle. The Lab's description... Sensual, sibilant, sexual and hypnotic: Arabian musk and exotic spices slinking through Egyptian amber, enticing vanilla, and a serpentine blend of black plum, labdanum, ambrette, benzoin and black coconut.
  2. I've been wearing Dia for the last 2 weeks, it's perfect for warm weather. <3

    Siberian Musk

    This reminds me of Panther Moon a little, or is it Velvet Panther? Or Scwarzer Mond? There's heavy musk and syrupy cola. I get a little Snake Oil from this but it's nowhere near as sweet and vanilla. I actually love this, and will be grabbing a couple more bottles before it goes away.

    Best Pirate Scent?

    I've tested most of those and I like Port Royal and Jolly Roger best. I think they have similar notes of rum, woods, and salty ocean, but JR has leather. Another great pirate scent, and hands down favorite is Anne Bonny: "...A blend of Indonesian red patchouli, red sandalwood, and frankincense..." I'd also recommend Pirate Moon, which is a limited edition and not available anymore, but you may be able to find a decant around the sale/swap pages. Pirate Moon: Red musk, ambergris, coconut palm, red sandalwood, balsam, date, warm leather, tobacco, ebony, lingum vitae wood, pandanus grass, an' a touch o' lime.

    India Ink

    This is such an amazing scent! It's not registering as perfume to me, but it really smells like the India ink I remember from art classes in college. There is a strange resiny smell that reminds me of one of the notes in Ivanushka or the 2010 bottle of Midnight Mass when it was fresh (frankincense maybe?). There's also something that smells like fresh motor oil. I am getting the "peppery paper" others mentioned in the dry down also. Rad.

    Dolly Kei

    Dolly Kei is like a lighter, flirtier Haloes or Antikythera Mechanism to me. Something, the tobacco-smells like teak/oak. It's a creamy golden vanilla. It's positively gorgeous!

    Down the Rabbit Hole Atmosphere Spray

    This is just delightful! I can close my eyes and see the rabbit hole with dirt and greens and gardeny stuff.

    White Peacock

    I wish this wasn't such a light scent despite all the heavy notes. The teak is glorious. The patchouli-vanilla combo is slightly reminiscent of Banshee Beat. The musk makes it a little perfumery but in a good way, and tobacco is a supporting note. I'm not too familiar with some of the other notes or they just aren't showing up to the party. This is a beautiful scent. I'm glad I got a bottle. :-)

    Nosferatu

    This is not my favorite scent. There is sweet, cloying rotted flowers and herbs, and dirt and grapey wine. No...

    Chimera

    To me, Chimera smells like the Aphrodite Kypria room spray, but a little less sweet. I live cinnamon smells but can't usually wear them because it irritates my skin and it amps and turns into cinnamon red hots. This smells cotton candy sweet with warm resins and I love it. I would only be able to wear this in my hair.

    Depraved

    I always hoped an imp of Depraved would come my way because I'm not a big fan of apricot in perfume but I do like patchouli. At first, this smelled like overripe peach or apricot. I was pretty sure I'd have to wash it off of my skin because the patchouli and apricot we're not playing nice together. After a few minutes the apricot calmed down and I was able to smell more of the dirty patchouli coming through. Later, it becomes patch with an occasional apricot bursting through. This scent really captures the idea of something sweet encountering something dirty and lecherous. I'm not sure I'd wear it often--I prefer patchouli with other dark notes a lot more.

    Coconut, Vanilla Bean and Tiare Hair Gloss

    I have a bottle of Comptior Sud Pacifique "Aloha Tiare" perfume and this hair gloss is a dead ringer for it. It's so tropical and coconutty, and strong! I'm going to spritz a little on my hand to mix with my Marrakech hair oil so it's not so OMG-beach-explosion. I love this, glad I got a bottle. <3

    Epomophorus Monstrosus

    Many thanks to my wonderful fairy. I can't pass up anything with woods, and when it's combined with patchouli, musks and chocolate, I'm sold. It smelled like Boomslang with a bit of #occupywallstreet in the bottle. Dark chocolate and dirty patchouli. Once it touches my skin, the cacao is smacked down by mahogany woods and balsam. I'm not that familiar with tonka bean so I can't tell what it lends to this perfume, but eventually this settles into a cocoa-dusted heady patch/musk with some sarsaparilla. The musk reminds me of the ones in the original Black Lace. It's a bit on the masculine side but it's teh sex. The dry stage reminds me more of La Mano Del Destino than anything else. Slightly sweet dark patchouli.

    Silver-Haired Bat

    I my fairy! I wanted Silver-Haired Bat from go because of the ambergris. I think the combination of benzoin with ambergris is making this scent a little Midway cotton candyish. It's butterscotch-vanilla-sugary in between the wet-dry phase, with a hint of the same cedar I recognize from Tombstone. At the end I get a slight whiff of pepper but it's not spicy, if that makes any sense. This scent is fantastic!
