    Peach Vulva

    Hmm. I let this sit for a few weeks in hopes it would settle and wow me. Well, it is apricot and peach, which is nice. I am not smelling anything else :-(. I will wait a bit longer for it to wow me but for now it is very nice fruit 😊 Eta: Not wowing me. I only smell apricot and peach. 05 Jun - yup, still just peach.

    Snake Smut

    Diluted Smut + a bit of patchouli is what I'm smelling. I let this rest for a while because of all of the strong personalities that were listed but there's nothing strong about it. I'm very surprised at how light this is. Eta: I wish I got what everyone else is getting.

    Muddy Armadillo

    I ordered this just after it was announced because everything sounded wonderful and I adore armadillos. I finally slathered it on this morning and love it. That dry cocoa and bark...and the creamy hint of tobacco is fantastic. This is one of the most comforting scents I have ever smelled and I am glad to have a bottle. ETA I don't get the dirt or dirty smell that other folks mention.

    Adventuresome Encounters

    This is a sweet creamy cinnamon vanilla pastry. Nothing complex here, but it smells great. On dry down there is a musky 'yam like' note, I guess. I think I'm trying to avoid the yam because the rest is really nice. It is a bit strange. The amber comes out more and masks the weirdness from the yam note, which is great. This reminds me so much of another perfume oil but I can't think of which one right now. And, once this has been on my skin for an hour, the yam note is gone and this is one of the most beautiful perfume oils I have ever smelled. Eta: I'm wearing this beauty today and finally figured out which oil it reminds me of. The drydown reminds me of Golden Sunrise from last year (plus a hint of cinnamon). I think it's the same amber even though this doesn't list amber cream. I love it.

    Lemon Peel, Marshmallow & Orange Blossom

    Finally gave this a real wear after decanting some for a friend yesterday and it is just so lovely. That lemon is perfect with the marshmallow. I don't get the orange blossom until a few minutes in, and I love that it doesn't take over. The marshmallow is chewy and this is very sweet. I love it.

    Kimi Ga Dai Wa

    I mean, kitties! πŸ˜† When I smelled this in the bottle, Obsession crossed my mind and then I promptly forgot about it. I decided this would be my perfume to test for the day so I dabbed a bit on from the cap. I didn't really smell much, maybe some light amber? I went about my day. About an hour later I kept thinking I was smelling CK Obsession! I raised my hand to my nose. Nope, it couldn't be that. And then I realized how strong this oil is and, several hours later, how long it lasts. The amber is the most dominant note on me and it is dark. If I try really hard I can tell there's sandalwood there. I love saffron in perfumes but I'm not smelling it on its own here. This just arrived in the mail, to Anchorage, today. I am looking forward to seeing how this changes, settles and ages. It was my first Luper choice and I am so glad. πŸ™‚ tl;dr The waft reminds me of Obsession or Anne Pliska, takes a while to bloom, lasts forever, very nice non powdery amber. 😻

    Haul on the Bowline

    I haven't tested this yet (can't wait though!) but I had to comment about the DARKNESS in this bottle. 😯 That is some sludge!!! In the bottle, this smells exactly how I hoped it would - and reminds me of #occupywallstreet as I hoped it would. I will edit my review once I test this guy! Finally tested. Since my bottle is half sludge it is sticky and discolors my skin which makes me very sad. It smells nice but I can't deal with the sludge.

    Ghost Milk

    This is not what I was expecting. I have trouble with 99.9% of anything with the word honey listed (honeycomb, honey, honey dust, etc.) and this? This is a stunning, beautiful, sweet, cozy stunner. I love it and cannot believe it works on me. I am so glad I got a decant.

    Gebirgsschlucht Im Winter

    Whoa. At first I get the cypress, oakmoss and a bit of blackberry. Very atmospheric, and lovely. After a few minutes the vegetal musk is present, supporting from beneath those notes. Then...that blackberry. It must be coupled with the tobacco like they were aging together for quite a long time because they are seamless together. The oakmoss doesn't take over and the cypress remains present. Wow. This is nothing like Gloomy Day but it is just as striking atmospherically. I love this so much. Actually, I bet this would layer well with Gloomy Day... End of ranting review πŸ˜‰

    I love this so much. I finally used up my imp and wanted to snag a bottle before this round went away and am so glad I did. It smells like a moonlit magical garden. I look forward to wearing this on the first night of each full moon. Beautiful.

    Cold Moon 2020

    Oooh! Slushy, snowy evergreen notes combined with frosty chocolate! I have reached for this one quite often this month and love it.

    I have nothing helpful to say but I wanted to exclaim how much I love this perfume and there is nothing else like it. It is genius, expertly blended and perfect for the days surrounding the full moon. I love this so much.

    I love this so much. It was an 11th hour purchase and I am so glad I took the chance. I thought, I have plenty of red musk and amber blends, this one probably isn't gonna wow me. Well, it did. I wonder, am I the only one who smells a component of Black Opal here? Seriously. If I huff, about 5 minutes after applying, I smell a similarity and it makes me smile. No, they aren't similar scents (obviously) but there's a fleeting moment of oooh I know that from somewhere. Anyhoo, this is gorgeous and I wasn't planning to review but wanted to add my 2 cents. πŸ™‚

    Verteilt Euch, Wackre MΓ€nner, Hier

    I have worn this quite frequently since it was released and it is becoming an old friend. I smell all of the notes, in turn, as they are listed, which is pretty neat. The cedar doesn't amp, but when it warms up on my skin it turns just a bit musky and one of the green notes goes just a bit powdery and it ends up being quite beautiful. Very forest floor like without the bright conifer needles and mushrooms. I agree with everyone who has used the word mossy. πŸ™‚ I really like this. The drydown reminds me of Theoi Nomioi but with moss instead of rock. They both have a musky drydown.

    Honestly? I think this is the best oil I've ever smelled. I truly wish it was available for sale in imp or bottle form. Truly stunning. Polished woods (but not 'mahogany', I guess the teak) and gritty, beautiful, glorious patchouli. There's a lift to it as it dries which I can't describe other than a lift. This is fantastic. Eta: It is the clove. I rarely like clove, ever. It is the airy bit giving the blend that lift. I need more.
