    Sweet, manly woodsmoke scent

    Tattie Bogle - Hay, gunpowder, patchouli, autumn herbs, and sun-baked wood, get it while you can. It's a great unisex smokey autumn scent.

    Different smells/colors, same perfume

    Is it a warm cinnamon? It might just be a mislabeled imp of Chimera (-The fiery, volatile scent of cinnamon, thickened by myrrh, honeysuckle, and copal.) instead.
  3. This smells so vintage. Very fruity and a bit floral. Maybe it's aging badly but I get no amber or patchouli at all. It's a bit of a jumble of notes, pomegranate is the most prominent then the wood and a bit of orchid. This isn't working for me.

    On my skin wet: Peppery cinnamon in your face! That's a bit harsh. On my skin dry: Really peppery cinnamon! The leather is lurking somewhere in the background making the scent smell a bit dry. It ends up rather aromatic though. Nice throw. Too dry for me but overall a nice spicy scent.

    Mary Shelley

    On my skin wet: Sweet licorice with some fading perfume. It's very faint on my skin. On my skin dry: Still a sweet licorice with a perfumey quality to it. I'm rather underwhelmed with Mary Shelley I expected something more mysterious and dramatic.
  6. I found Delight and Consternation almost identical to the Seekim which has the same lemon/ cocoa thing going on. For more foody-but-not-quite scents I'd recommend Wulric the Wolfman - cocoa absolute, French vanilla, birch tar, lavender, bourbon vetiver, wild musk, clary sage, and cistus.

    Peninsula Fulminum

    If the Music of Erich Zann and Schwarzer Mond got together and had a baby this is what I imagine it would smell like. Smoke, patchouli and vetiver with some sweetness from the black musk. A true smoke blend from the lab like a smouldering campfire or stick of incense.

    The Diamond’s Gong

    Champaca strikes again! This smells like a toilet deodorizer block.

    Adam, our suicidally romantic scoundrel. His scent is a palette of somber colors, melancholy memories, and lupine, savage beauty: black leather, pale sandalwood, ambergris accord, and the memory of a long-lost Victorian fougère.His internal life seems to be reflected in his lair, so his perfume also possesses the scent of the wood of his guitars, the rosin from his violin bow, the musty wool of neglected Oriental carpets, the plastic, metal, and magnetic tape of his reel-to-reel, the dust that permeates everything. What with all the notes there isn't much of anything going on in here strangely. It just smells. It might smell of a herbal carpetty thing with a fading perfume of benzoin and sandalwood. I just know it doesn't smell of leather or rosin.
  10. What a piece of work is a man!What is this quintessence of dust? The passing: beeswax and smoke, yellowed paper and well-worn leather books, droplets of spilled ink, faded incense, blood-tinged salty tears, and the metal of the knife that skewers that illiterate zombie philistines portrait. Lots of beeswax and honey with a little bit of dust. The beeswax/honey note does what it always does on my skin after a while which is smell bad and won't scrub off. If you can pull off honey/beeswax you might like this for me it's a no go.

    June 23, 1868

    Happy soapy floral, halfway through the dry-down it veers a bit into dishwashing liquid then goes back to a classy nightblooming bouquet. I kind of like it, it has a nice staying power and sillage but I don't think I'll wear it a lot.

    Immersed in his (eternal) life’s work, holding on to his memories, suffused with a love of life and literature, Kit’s scent is soft and dry as bone: Mysore sandalwood, a tattered and patched 16th century waistcoat, inkstained, still scented with the marjoram and benzoin dry perfumes of his youth. Kit smells like flour and powdery sandalwood with a hint of nuts (hazelnuts?) in the background, I don't get the majoram. Sweet and somewhat foody it reminds me of L'Artisan Parfumeur Bois Farine.
  13. Black musk accord, Ethiopian myrrh, and motor oil. For me this is the best one out of this update. The black musk accord definitely contains patchouli; it's in there somewhere. I tested the OLLA blind and first couldn't link this one to any of them. I don't get motor oil at all. I get unburned nag champa incense with a swirl of patchouli in the background. Gorgeous.

    This is a lot like Butterflies, Flowers and Jewels Attending with the freesia turned down a notch.

    Molly, the Reaper of Justice

    I smelled something like this in the BPAL catalogue before but I can’t put my finger on it. There is honey with lime, pungent woods and something reminiscent of menthol. The menthol disappears after a while but the chaos of honey and pungent woods stick around, smoky saffron backs the woods up. Light and dark, a bit of a muddle of notes with a good throw.
