    Switch Witch 2018 condiments and doodads

    10/15/18 There are some really awesome spice shops in NYC. Would you like/need any herbs or spices? Anything from this curiosity shop the type of thing that interests you? Dreadful Curiosities: https://www.facebook.com/pg/dreadfulcuriosities/photos/ 10/14/18 For those of us Switch Witches who ARE witches....if you have a Book of Spells would you like a page for it from your witch? What house were you sorted into? 10/13/18 Practical Magic or Hocus Pocus? Does anything from either of these shops interest you? The Stitchety Witch stitch creations and patterns Black Abbey Studios art w/ a gothic tendency Is there something (either a specific item, or type of item, like bath/body, perfume, candy etc) you're really looking forward to or hoping to get? What's something you want or look at, but always talk yourself out of buying (or for whatever reason never purchase)? Are there any subscription/subscription style boxes you have an interest in? (This could be a very specific sub like sihaya or lootcrate or an idea/concept you're interested in without a specific company in mind, like "book related candles"). Coffee or Tea? Anything from David's Tea(esp the new Halloween) that catches your eye? What are your DISO BPAL dreams? 10/12/18 Spooky stuff! D'ya like... ghosts? Skeletons? Aliens? Bigfoot? Unsolved mysteries? Is there anything from the Lush christmas line that was just released that you're interested in? Is there any scents from the more current releases you have been wanting to try (Weenies, Motherhood/Fatherhood)? How do you feel about buttons, pins, and badges? 10/11/18 Can you link to your non forum wishlists/goodreads if you haven't already done so? If you're a yarn user, what kinds of yarn do you like best? Are you witchy or like witchy things like incense, sage, palo santo, crystals, tarot, altar supplies, candles, etc.? Whatcha like/need? So I do tarot and I am sort of reexpirementing with wiccan stuff but I am going slow and really kind of newbish right now. Do you need decanting supplies? Sample vials? Pipettes? Standard labels? Ah, vials maybe as I cannot find mine. But not a ton. 10/10/18 Let's get specific about this knitting thing! Do any of these items/styles appeal? I've numbered these so you can just reference numbers if you like! 4 If your witch was able to obtain digital media that you could not access (TV, movies, books, etc.), is there anything you have been in search of for quite a while? If yes, what devices do you use to play such (i.e. Windows, Mac, etc.)? Books, epub. Is there anything you want from Japan? Some kind of food, cute stationary, fandom merch, maybe you collect lucky cats, anything! Yes. Just yes. Despite no longer being a sort of anime Otaku fangirl of the worst kind, I still hold a super specila place in my heart for all things Japan. Both traditional and modern, and I sort of love Jrock and Jpop. 10/9/18 Are you interested in anything from Nerdlacquer? http://www.nerdlacquer.com/ So I like a fee but caveat I never do my nails because I suck at it bad =/ White Hole, Shut Up Wesley, smuggler and gambler, Carrie!, Dax Balmshell 10/8/18 Speaking of OOS/Discontinued - Are there any old favorites from no longer operating companies that you would like if either anyone had a stash OR could find a reasonable dupe? I do not think so. Booze, yea or nay? Favorite kinds? Uh if it is unusual or homemade, yes. Otherwise no as I rarely indulge. Anything but anise/licorice. Knitted stuff? Need/want anything specific? Colors? Fingerless gloves, other non wearables. Jewel tones, monochrome. Feelings re: Lewis Carroll/Alice in Wonderland? Love it, hate it, meh it? Enjoy it. As well as other authors or things that base off that universe mythos. Are you thinking of participating in NaNoWriMo this year? Any merch or pre-Nano supplies you might want? I am not, and no thank you. I just recently discovered MoonMagic -jewelry with a focus on moonstones but also opals and labradorite. They currently have a sale. Anything that stands out to you? (moonmagic.com) All in silve and moonstone or opalr: To the moon and back necklace, spiraled full moon ring (no idea on size though) Do you like quirky socks? Any preferred styles (ankle, thigh-high..)? I mean, sort of. Texture is most important to my feet so decorative socks are usually too rough or textured. But if you find very soft ones, ankle high. 10/7/18 Would you like a postcard from the fancy schmantsy St Pancras Renaissance hotel that I'm about to stay in several times over the next month? (Witches, I'll happily send one to your witchee if they would like it) Sure, who hates mail? Idk where I wojld put it afterward though. Kiddo will prolly steal it. Does anything catch your eye from Future Primitive, including oos things? It seems like everything here has sulfates in spades so lal probably too harsh for my sensitive skin.

    Pumpkin Rice Pudding

    So this is cinnamon and pumpkin dominant on me (NOT pumpkin spice, just cinnamony butteryness) witha backdrop of creamy rice pudding. At long dry down the creamy rice pudding takes over and then sort of morphs i to just a creamy sweetness with not really any pumpkin left, and only a dan of cinnamon. This is VERY foody. It is unrepentantly sweet and smells like sweet food period.

    Mouse's Long and Sad Tale

    This is actually quite nice on my skin, a very smooth mix of the whole. I guess I didn’t know what sweet pea smelled like but it is a sweet and decidedly unstinky or headache inducing floral. The vanilla and amber and sweet pea overlay again unpowdery sandalwood that lays as a backdrop. A well rounded sweet scent that is neither foody , nor resinous, nor floral but something in between.

    Witch’s Tea Party

    I cannot imagine how but this goes unbelievably masculine on me. Pure aftershave, cologne. The lilac is buried somewhere under the cologne but it really is smothered. I get no green tea. I would love this on my husband if he would wear it but it doesn’t work on me as I do not favor masculine scents.

    Wet this is mostly the strawberry but dry down is exclusively the soap (reminds me of Johnson and Johnson baby soap), honey and a touch of sunshine. It is sort of nostalgic and as a mum who used this soap for her kids probably a keeper for memory sake. On long dry down just a hint of strawberry comes out. Fades after a few hours altogether.

    Drop Dead Ghoulish

    This reminds me of another bpal but I cannot recall what it is, like an itch I cannot scratch. This dries down to mostly honey and cream with the booberries being less berry and more boo. I actually quite like it so will probably be keeping my bottle but I do wish I could figure out what it reminds me of.

    Chocolate + Pickles

    Wet this is very chocolate forward- somewhere between dark and milk chocolate for me. Early dry down the buttercream is dominant, smells like the same note from Cake Smash v6. Not plastic on my skin fortunately. Late dry down is a mash of the two stages. Milky chocolate and buttercream swirled together but definitely not a chocolate buttercream just a mix of the two notes. Very sweet very foods pretty straightforward.

    Eve (With Sage Fuck Up)

    So Eve does not work on me because I amp the rose and it becomes cloying. Eve WSFU opens up almost as cloying, super sweet and very spicy and just not good for me. But. Dry down is different, I was not sure what to expect from the sage but it reads as a subdued earthy balancer to rich not overly sweet incense, spices and a dab of honey. Dry down is quite nice actually, and makes this a keeper I think. Keep fing up Beth, cause winner winner.

    On dry down this is a not quite perfuming almond blossom and rice milk (translate as just a pleasant creaminess) with only a sliver of currant hiding somewhere in the bouquet. Notably on the edge of foody without being foody. Nice and good for springy time.

    Blood Popsicle

    This is such a bizarre scent on me, a morpher for sure. Wet and in the early dry down it is like soapy dryer sheets... definitely a painful stage. But dry it is a faintly sweet scent that is reminiscent of blood but in ankind of pleasant way. I am not sure how to describe it and I cannot pin down any notes. I do not get the frozen notes on my skin. Still deciding if it should stay or not.

    Drag is for Everyone

    The description for this sums it up nicely. Wet this is frank forward and is a little masculine for me, but on dry down there is light vanilla-y musk (definitey bourbon vanilla, not alcohol related in anyway and also not even remotely foody) with just the faintest overlay of frankincense that tempers it nicely. Not very resinous, not foody. Just right for layering and I cannot wait to experiment with it some. If this sounds like it might work for you, try it because it is very neutral and easy to wear.

    Café Mille et une Nuits

    I think this may be the coffee scent I always wanted but had never found in bpal. It starts out super coffee heavy, ultra thick, syrupy turkish style coffee, black. Then the spices start to come forward, sweetened greatly by the shisha (which reminds me so much of college when we used to go smoke in the middle eastern restaurants). This is a sum of its parts scent where these components swirl together and slowly even out so nothing is strongly dominating and it is just an accord of this perfect picture of a place. Late drydown is just remnants of sweetish spices dabbed with coffee. Such a winner for me.

    This is definitely related to Morocco in big ways. Morocco is a little too intense for me, and this wears as Morocco but married to tea rose, which amps on me as sort of sickly sweet. I guess I am one of the unlucky few this perfume does not work for. It is pretty fresh from mailbox os I will retest after a few days.

    Lilith's Loli Dragon

    Candied dragon’s blood with a little candied strawberry (like the strawberry hard candies with the gooey centers). I only recognize the Dragon’s blood bc of Kwamie Cotton, and while I enjoy it, I think I like it better with the cotton than with the strawberry. Still may be a keeper though, I will let it rest and then try again. Kwamie Cotton is one of my favorite scents period so comparing probably is not fair =p

    The Levee

    Wet this is very vetiver on me, and as I dry down I get smoke, slightly sweetened smoke but mostly just smoke. It would seem I amp it. While not an unpleasant scent I was hoping the smoke would be a background note and not the forenote. Alas.
