    Dragon-Smooched Snake Oil

    I wasn't sure this would work on me, since dragon's blood and honey scents tend not to. And fresh Snake Oil doesn't work nicely with my skin. But. This mix is lovely on my skin. It's a smooth, slightly spicy Snake Oil on me. So glad I got it.

    Cold Moon

    2017 Version The lunar oils remind me very much of the 2004ish Lunacy scents, with some snowy notes. Really reminds me of Skadi, and Snow Moon 2005. I love it.

    Black Phoenix Bay Rum

    This is lovely. It is pure bay rum, and a small whisper of spices in the bottle. On my skin: the bay rum is there, but the spices warm up on my skin. It's gorgeous, and I think it would smell fantastic on a guy as well. So glad I found a fairy to get this for me!

    Pearl Hair Gloss

    This is lovely. It's a light scent on me, shimmery, soft white floral. The amber plays as sweet tobacco on my skin. It stays very close to my skin, but I occasionally smell it, and keep wondering, "What smells so great?". I layered Dorian over it, and it's fantastic. I want more in this scent. Everything in this scent.

    Revenant Rhythm Bath Oil

    Disclosure: I'm not a patchouli fan. But this. This is so much more than patchouli. It's soft, rounded, and comforting. I get some patchouli, but on me, there's teakwood, a little patchouli, and the vanilla is just a whisper. But it sweetens it slightly, and makes it smell creamy and smooth. Thank goodness BB wasn't this good on me, I would have gone broke! I will be buying more. And I'm really glad I bought the atmo spray too.

    Wild sea rose Recs Please!

    Hmmm....I wonder if it might be similar if you mixed Two, Five, and Seven with The Pool of Tears? I grew up on the Cape, and love the scent of the beach roses and ocean. Add some fog to the mix and it's my favorite scent from childhood.

    A Lady Tall and White

    Spot on. It evokes Snow White for me, without the coconut. It's gorgeous, and I think it actually replaces Skadi for me as favorite winter blend. That's HUGE. Skadi has been it for me since it first came out. 2004? 2005? It's that good.

    Sleeping at the Feet of the Snow Queen Hair Gloss

    The roar of the wild wind, the howl of winter wolves, the screams of night-winged crows, and the moon shining, clear and bright: juniper and white musk with white tea extract, oakmoss absolute, white lemon rind, and tobacco. Okay. This is amazing. Everything is blended together so beautifully that it's hard to pick out individual notes. It smells to me of old-school Lunacy notes, circa Snow Moon 2005. A little chilly, a little powdery without being cloying. Some freshness that gives me a visual of soft snow and cold air. There is also a little of the oakmoss and tobacco which just softens it without being overpowering. Buy it. Or two. Seriously.

    Honeyed Apple Bath Oil

    I love this. Honey does ugly things on my skin, so I initially didn't smell this. Well, the honey is a background scent. The apple is a red, juicy apple. It's amazing in a bath, and gorgeous used as a moisturizer directly on the skin. So happy I got this.
  10. oceandreamer001

    Snow Scents!

    My ultimate snow scent was, and is, Skadi. I broke out my old Skadi the other day (because I have two on the way to me) and it is heaven. I'm trying to control myself and not buy all the bottles this year.

    Unspeakably Evil Temple Atmosphere Spray

    I've been spraying this at work because I find the irony amusing. It's not my usual type of scent, but it has totally grown on me. I get dark resins, patchouli, and maybe some leather. If I had to describe what this smells like, I'd say it's how Viggo Mortensen's Aragorn smelled in the Lord of the Ring movies. A sexy brooding man who has dark secrets.
  14. oceandreamer001

    Plague Doctor v10

    Yes! Deep murky blue/green water. I also get a touch of silt, which could be sandalwood. It starts out cologne-y, reminding me very much of my favorite Airs incense Blue Nile. I haven't seen it in years, so it makes me happy. Then I get the deep water. It's strange, it is aquatic-y, but it's definitely fresh water on me. There is something underneath as well, it could be herbs, but it is very slight and I can't put my finger on it. It reminds me of swimming in a pond from my childhood. I really like it, and it is very relaxing to me.

    Beachy, Tropical Scents

    Mary Read. The whole time I was in St. John (USVI) the air smelled so good. When I got home, it was the scent of Mary Read. Seriously.
