    Dead Leaves, Blue Lilac, Black Currant, and Black Orchid

    It's a smoky dusky sultry floral. It has a wafting smoke element to it, but it's kept in check. I get a dark lilac in a non-heady way with something menacing around the edges. Hypnotizing, alluring and head-turning.

    I got hold of a partial bottle last year, tested it several times, but couldn't make up my mind if i like it or not; so i let it rest for half a year and now decided to give it another try. Seth has a perfumey and soapy (as in clean) vibe that lingers for the first hour. Later in develops into a floral clean musk (even though no musk is listed) and with soft short-lived soapy shrieks from time to time. I can't tell if it's the lotus or champaca flower standing out the most, but it's all wrapped up in the myrrh/papyrus embrace, giving off a clean and a tiny tiny tad powdery feel.

    'Tis Not Madness

    I got a decant of it in early autumn and didn't think much of it. After 6 months, i retested it and i have a whole new perspective on it. It's centered around the orange blossom that gives off a slight soapy vibe, but it behaves nicely. What is keeping it in check is the patch and sandalwood, which are more obvious on the dry down. It's a clean soapy (orange blossom) patchouli rounded by the sandalwood.

    In Dubiis Libertas

    This is is my favorite out of the three blends that the Lab has offered as freebies during the Black Friday sale. It's a beautifully balsamic sweet amber, with woody touches. I can't get over the fact how aromatic it is and it keeps lingering on and on. I get no smoke as other reviewers mentioned above. I wish the lab adds this to their permanent Activism line.

    Cozy Pumpkin Sweater

    i jumped on the band wagon and purchased blindly a bottle. i have no idea how agora sweaters smell, but what i can tell you is that the spices here amp up on my skin and i get a fluffy wool note, rounded with a faint orange (fruit) vibe, but still the spices here dominate. i will have to rest it and test it in the fall.

    My Tiger

    HOLY MOTHER OF GOD!!! This is so beautiful...it reminded me instantly of some familiar perfume accords in french classic perfumery, but My Tiger is much more soothing and smooth. In the bottle i sense lavender right away and i thought to myself that it would be a lavender forward blend, but was i WRONG! All the elements blend in so well in a way that makes it impossible to distinguish each note separately. It smells like a foodie for non-foodie lovers, something vaguely like chocolate, orange peel. My eyes just roll in rapture. The amber gives it a bit of zing here and there. Get My Tiger while it's still in stock! Thank me later

    Sugar Skulls in the Pumpkin Patch

    Sugared pumpkin pulp and a dash of cinnamon. No candied fruits or burnt sugar notes usually found in Sugar Skull.

    Songs of Autumn IV

    This has totally failed on my skin. I think the apple peel turned into nail polish remover and effed up everything. It's a dry sour hay blend. Reminds me of fermenting apple cider without fizz.

    It's all about the ginger spicy root. It's a zingy (not juicy) ginger disguised in citrus and apricot. It reminds me of a dried ginger root-citrus tea sachet. The blend has a dry quality about it.

    Come, Sister

    December 2019: I get a lush mildly sweet white floral, gardenia most likely. It's a bit dewy, not at all waxy. A pretty decent floral for those who abhor floral scents. June 2019: 7 months later, in the summertime, it morphs into a briney aquatic, with traces of incense. Reminds of Ogygia from the GC catalogue.

    Dusk in Autumn

    In the opening, i get the the dry crunchy leaves, backed with some tartness from the currants. Gradually the leaves subside and are replaced with some tempered smokiness. The cake and tea notes mingle with the smokiness and feels very cozy and refined.

    Port Royal

    Smells like fancy Italian soap. I get beautiful soapiness with traces of clove and bay leaf, supposedly the spiced rum accord. If you;re looking for a blend mimicking a bar of clove/ bay rum spice soap, this is it !

    Vampire Tween

    I get blood musk mixed with cotton candy. Smells a bit gothic and dark. I expected more strawberry and lavender. Somehow this blend smells to me hollow, as if the there's a void pushing away all notes.

    Snake Skin

    2019 decant: I picked this one up without any expectation. This has to be one the best Snake Oil variations out there. The leather note is the kind i like and mixes so well with the SO. As i wear it, it doesn't scream leather to me, but more like a cozy caramelized buttery leathery Snake Oil.This is too gorgeous i can't even find the right words to describe how amazing this smells.
