    The Icebergs

    I bought this when it was released and only smelled PEACH and APRICOT from it so I set it aside. I kept trying to decide if I should sell it or not and honestly, the nostalgia of the art made me hold on to it. I am soooo glad I did! Finally giving this a solid wear this morning and NOW I am getting the picture. Does it reflect the color palette of the art? Absolutely. I kept thinking about how springlike this feels, like a Luper, but I am definitely feeling a winter chill while sniffing this and am loving it. Beautiful, complex and worth the wait.

    Peach Brandy Snake Oil

    I have had this for a few weeks and am now finally wearing it. If I didn't know the name, I would not guess there was Snake Oil here. The peach brandy is really nice and strong! After about an hour there's a depth of vanilla that edges in but, again, I would never guess Snake Oil. I really like this. So, I'm gonna pretend I don't know the name and enjoy it regardless. (I am really sad about whatever has changed with Snake Oil in the past few years. It has lost its 'muchness'.)

    PSL: Pumpkin Snake Latte

    Very nice. Smooth pumpkin spice latte drying down to Snake Oil. Yes, it's the new Snake Oil but I quite like it. It is very light and I am hoping it will get stronger with age. As it is, right now, it is lovely. ETA: The Snake Oil is much more like the old Snake Oil than some newer blends, in my opinion.

    Harvest Moon 2021

    I love this one. Perfect blend of leaves and fruits, more apricot than anything, I think. I have been overwhelmed by scent lately, but this is not overwhelming at all. Just lovely.

    Under the Foot Warmer

    Beautiful. It just arrived so I know it needs a moment but I can't pick out any of the notes, lol. It does remind me of my old favorite Ojon shampoo. Very nice. Eta: This is aging beautifully. It is rare for me to want to wear the same perfume oil two days in a row. The nuttiness went away, the amber is smoldering with the pine and I love it.

    Velvet Void

    I love this. The plum blossom is a nice touch (if you've ever actually smelled a plum blossom, you'll pick it out here - I grew up with a plum tree!) especially coupled with the elder flower (what a beautiful pollen-y quality) and I don't get any of the dreaded aniseed or star anise that made me wait for reviews (thank goodness!) but the elderberries are such a refreshing, and rare, scent I really wanted to try this, and I'm glad I took a chance. The frankincense is the same glowing frankincense from Totality but is less strong here. Very, very nice.
  7. I immediately got Hugo Boss vibes and was transported back to the late 90s when I loved that juice! It does settle down, in a way that the rose and oakmoss take over that doesn't thrill me but it still works. I will hold on to my bottle to see which notes end up being dominant. Eta: After a few more months (Nov) the pine needles are more prominent and the entire blend is aging beautifully. It is wowing me now. ๐Ÿงก

    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 ๐Ÿ˜Š 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! ๐Ÿ˜† 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. ๐Ÿ™‚ tl;dr The waft reminds me of Obsession or Anne Pliska, takes a while to bloom, lasts forever, very nice non powdery amber. ๐Ÿ˜ป

    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. ๐Ÿ˜ฏ 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.
